We stayed in 10 places on our 5-week trip in Hawaii, and this was the only disappointment. Yes, the apartments are very spacious, much more so than a couple needs. However, basic cleaning and upkeep are substandard. The owner no longer is permitted to serve breakfast but guests can use the big kitchen. Eric is a good guy (he didn't blink about canceling 4 of the 5 days of our reservation after we'd stayed one night... I'm guessing that happens a lot) and is trying to develop a quality place, but he has too much to do by himself. Hiring help to clean and paint would definitely make this place more appealing. From the reviews, some people love this place, but it was too casual for us.
