Aloha we apologize. Taking everything you say to heart and will keep working to better. Our plantation cabins are historically old original cabins. We appreciate your comments Although would have loved to hear them while you were here. We did have someone come daily to check on you .

Horrible place, shockingly dirty! Mud and dirt everywhere in the room and sheets not clean. Management didn’t want to know. Way better on air bnb or the street... literally the worst place across the island or the mainland I’ve ever stayed! 0/5

Aloha sorry for your experience. There should have been curtains in your room we would have been happy to get those up for you. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. As far as the toilet and sink being separate yes that could be annoying. The cabins were built as they are and are grandfathered in that way. We cant change the layout of the building. The purell dispenser is actually a fantastic idea. Glad that overall you enjoyed The North Shore and the location. Mahalo!

No space for our belongings and a tight squeeze in the room. Very plain and ugly as you can see.
We think the room may have had pegs to hang towels at one point in time, but obviously not fixed or replaced.
"if you have a bigger budget consider the Beach house or the Back house, they have private rooms and offer a view ."
"If you're staying in the first cabin, make sure you get the rooms on the left side -- facing away from the noisy commons area."
"If you are renting a private room ask for cabin1"
"don't stay here."
"Dirty, Poor accessibility, Poor service, Poor provision"
