You get what you pay for, however, this condo is sub-standard, even for a budget unit. We rented from Hawaiian Condo Resorts and this was the only condo available for the time period we needed.
Comfortable, albeit small double bed
Carpet was stained and dirty.
Couch was stained and dirty. I covered the couch with towels for the time we were there as it was too dirty to sit on! Both the carpet and couch need replacing.
Had to get the maintenance man to fix the TV as it wasn't tuned into the channels.
We were unable to pull out the shower knob to turn on the water. Maintenance man looked at this also and was unable to make it any easier to operate. We were finally able to work out that if you pulled on it at the same as turning it left and right, it would finally produce some water!
The toaster didn't work. This was replaced the following day with a second-hand one that did!
Burners were uneven (stove needs replacing)
There was no oven tray/dish. We were told to go out and buy one of the foil trays at a supermarket!
The towels were old, worn and worst of all STAINED. Luckily for us we had brought our own linen with us as we were relocating. Linen needs to be replaced.
Lanai overlooks the tennis/basketball court. OK if you like the sound of bouncing balls!
Only supplied with one small cake of soap and one toilet roll.
You need to supply washing up soap, dishwasher powder, tea towel. There was an old pot scrubber supplied which I did not use!
Summary - look elsewhere if this is the condo they offer you. It is in need of a MAJOR total upgrade!
