We have rented many condos through VRBO and this unit was by far the worst we have ever stayed in. The reviews we read on-line before booking did not reflect our experience.
Overall the complex is impressive. Beautifully manicured lawns and garden area. Nice BBQ's. Large pool with a hot tub and an on-site Concierge Desk to book tours and the on-site SUP's. The complex overlooks a park with public tennis courts. This unit has fabulous unobstructed ocean views to watch the sunset from the comfort of the lanai.
The positive things are: 1) nice sized unit ~ perfect for two couples, 2) large spacious lanai, 3) lots of fairly good quality towels, and 4) booking process with Kumulani was easy.
Now for the bad:
1) The unit felt grimy. There were layers of dust on the fans, light fixtures, and others areas. The shower and bath tub were stained with soap scum/hard water residue. The carpets need to be shampooed. It looked like the unit had not been thoroughly cleaned for a long time.
2) There were ant traps on the kitchen counter and we did see very tiny ants in the kitchen area. The unit needs to be fumigated.
3) The master bathroom tub/shower faucet was stuck between the tub and shower head. We notified Kumulani, but did not want a repair occuring during our stay so we managed with it because enough water came out of the shower head to shower.
4) The king size bed in the master is sagging in the middle on both sides. It was not very comfortable and needs replacing.
5) The bed linens were thin and worn. They seemed to be of poor quality.
6) The living room sectional couch is different than the on-line photo. Some of the cushions were stained and one was ripped ~ we turned that one over.
7) When we go to Maui, we always keep the doors open to the lanai when we are in the unit. The noise from the pool area echoed up into the lanai, inside the unit and was annoying. It was non-stop all day and into the evening. After 10:00 p.m. when the pool closed it was quiet.
Overall, this unit has been well used and not very well maintained. It is due for a complete renovation including updated appliances, furniture, carpet and paint. We will not be staying here again.
