Rented Unit 502 from VRBO. Was a pleasant experience renting. The deposit process was quite smooth--we exchanged emails and phone calls. I paid with credit card for deposit and actual amount. And we got a deposit check back quite promptly. (along with a nice card wishing us the best for our new marriage)
The unit itself was nice. My wife loved it. I thought it a tad warm. (Nihi Kai units dont have AC... and for me, anything over 75 is hot since I am from San Francisco!) But it was nice. All of the rooms had ceiling fans, which I had running full blast.
Kitchen well stocked. We did have to rinse some of the dishes again before using. (one pitcher smelled like fruit punch, so we rinsed and it was fine) They do have everything--pitchers, dining sets, kettle, etc. We used the kettle to boil water and then put it in the fridge to have cold drinking water, which is necessary in Kauai.
Bedrooms were great. We enjoyed the master bed. Sheets were nice. Towels were nice too, and well stocked for 2 bathrooms. They are downstairs, so its cooler.
Bathrooms remodeled, quite nice. The toilets have a STRONG flush, so you know nothing will get clogged.
Living room had a TV, VCR/DVD, and internet. Again, well stocked. Couches, coffee table, etc. They also stocked travel informational materials--Kauai revealed (we didnt get a chance to buy it, and glad we didnt), articles, a travel diary, and maps.
Overall, lovely experience. As nice as a hotel, much more private, and VERY close to the beach. It was near the construction, but you couldnt hear any of it.
They even left a bottle of wine for our honeymoon. (which we left since neither of us drink)
Would stay again anytime.
