Hi! I'm sure this will be the first of many questions from me--I am planning to take my parents to Kauai next summer and am insanely excited. I greatly appreciate any help and tips from those of you "in the know"!
I've been scouring the web for vacation rentals on the north shore (preferably in parts of Haena where it's possible to walk to the beach, or at Anini) that sleep 4 for around $2500/week or less. I have a long list of promising candidates, but I'm wondering which rental agencies are trustworthy. Have read good things about Kauai Vacation Rentals and things that sound kind of concerning about Jean & Abbott and Oceanfront. Can't find much about Ahh! Aloha except that they're on the mainland(?), and even less about 800hawaii.com/Aloha Rental Management. Lots of good stuff on vrbo, of course. Can anyone comment on any of these agencies, or suggest strategies for telling which ones are trustworthy?
One more random question--if a rental property is for sale, is that a bad sign--would you avoid even considering it? Or does that happen a lot?
Again, thank you so much for any advice you can offer!
