We've just come back from 9 days in unit 28a at nihilani at princeville. Really nice condo and as described, however.... I'm not sure if it is normal for US rentals or just because we are uk/Australian but we were quite taken aback by the amount of rules. Use an extra towel you'll be charged $25, don't take your shoes off charged, use an extra plate, park in the wrong place, use the pool, make a noise, have fun... You get my point. I'm sure we went there for a holiday!
We arrived in kauai at 6am after getting up at 3am for a flight. The keys were waiting for us at the car rental so we thought great lets get there. It said check in was 2pm but as the keys were they and they knew our flight details we were cool. We kept ourselves as busy as possible but so tired we went to the condo at 9.30am. After 15 mins the cleaner turned up. Next thing the management company called to advise the owners wish to charge us an extra half a day. Seriously?!?!? We were booked for 9 days and were leaving v v v early on day 9 so surely it evens out.
It just seems mean and grabby. They obviously had no one in there and just saw an easy grab for more money. Where is the aloha spirit?!?
The place is nice, you need a car. The unit we had offered no holiday extras I.e DVDs for the DVD player, games, books, beach anything really but a few chairs. For the price it would be nice to give something other than rules or threats.
Enjoy the sterility, clean before you leave and make sure you behave!
