Bug infested/dirty not what worth the money
The only reason we booked this place was because of the reviews and the pictures. So we payed a lot of money to stay 14 nights, and really after what we experienced should have at least been refunded half, not just the cleaning deposit.
We arrived at 10:00 at night so the extent of how dirty this place was when we arrived we didn’t know till morning. After the second day I reached out to the property owner Wendy. I let her know that communication is important and that this is not what we had signed up for.She apologized and said she has no idea it was left that way. She said her last guests were roudy and left the place a mess and the place was just sprayed for bugs before we got there.
She had the cleaner bring new sheets, and refunded us our cleaning deposit. Mind you we spent 3 hours cleaning just to feel comfortable enough to eat there.
We tried to make the best of it. But the bug situation was so bad. My husband used to live in Hawaii, so we knew not to leave any food or crumbs out. We couldn’t figure out why we kept getting bit, especially at night. My first thought was bed bugs, nope it was ants, and carpenter ants inside eating away the house literally. Having cockroaches climb over you at night is not so fun either. There should Not be mice, ant or bug traps in ever corner of a home.
there was no other place we could go to either as everything was booked up. I kept in contact with Wendy the whole time, every time something else came up I took a picture and sent it to her. This place has not been cleaned in a long time, and if I could figure out how to post the pictures I would.
The last 2 nights we were there a rat ate through the screen and left a big hole.
Cons- not the same furniture that is in the pictures- cushions all stained. And rug
Dirty- when you have bugs crusted to the wall in the kitchen, that’s bad.The oven only had one working burner
When you open the drawers- no joke there were dead bugs in it and dirty
The stairs outside are very questionable and rotten.No AC in main living area, so even with 5 fans going at 85 degree weather it was too hot. There are AC units in the bedroom, but are on a timer of 2 hr increments.The topper is that my mother in law was laying in bed, and a cock roach landed on her eye. Long story short either it be the cockroach, ant or bug bite she now is fighting cellulitis in her eye, no joke major serious infection. So now you can read a true real review.
In all of my 15 years that I've rented vacation rentals in Hawaii
I've never seen anyone try so hard to get their vacation for free
by complaining. This must be what they do, I have no words....
A great place to stay
Nice house, perfect for a team with a nice big living room and outdorspace for a BBQ, nice view over the ocean for sundowner, next to be best beach in Kona = white sands.
Nice that you can use Bodyboards and snorchel stuff from the houese
Enjoyed having these appreciative friendly guests!
The house was perfect for our family. Very kid and adult friendly. We loved the short walk to Magic Sands beach. AMAZING service and quick responses from the owners.
Great place to stay!
This was a perfect home with great amenities. Plenty of room, great location with a short walk to magic sands beach. It was nice to always have an ocean view from the deck/kitchen. Ready to go back!
Great place to stay
This is the first time I ever rented a house and living in Florida, I had concerns about selecting a place with no knowledge of the area. Plus there are always the horror stories you hear about rentals. For Kona Lighthouse, you can put your fears to rest. The place was clean and had all the amenities mentioned. I doubled check to ensure the pool and BBQ grill were at least in working order - it was not only that, but looked like new. The only small issue we had was that the air conditioners were on a 2-hour timer and only in the bedrooms. It was in 90's so AC was definitely needed. There were lots of floor and ceiling fans so that helped a bit. There isn't a dining room table although there are 2 tables situated on the deck which isn't completely covered but fortunately it only rained in the late evening during our stay. Note that my rating is also based on the rate. It was an excellent value for the rate we paid. We loved sitting on the deck watching the sun rise in the morning and setting in the evening. We fit our group of 8 adults very comfortably.. We had one issue with a tripped breaker which was promptly handled. My messages to Wendy prior to arrival were also responded to promptly and politely.
Good value, great views!
Ultimately I would say this property met our expectations and provided a great place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. We had 4 adults and 4 kids in our party, three girls and one boy which worked perfectly for us. The three girls shared the downstairs suite, while 4 adults and one boy had the three bedrooms upstairs. It should be noted that the downstairs suite is not accessible from inside and the kids had to go outside to go down to their room. Their were also three access points to the outdoors through that suite, so if you have littles I wouldn’t recommend having them down there without an adult (at least in my opinion), but it worked great for three teenagers. The pool was great for the kids to play in after a long day, and it was huge and relatively shallow so it worked well for kiddos. Wish there would have been air conditioning in the main living area, but we knew coming in that A/C was only in the bedrooms. Plenty of fans were provided to keep air flowing which helped, it was just an adjustment coming from Michigan! Communication with Wendy, Harry, and Kitty (the on-site caretaker) was fabulous and they always responded quickly to resolve issues. Overall the house was clean, but cobwebs and dust noted in corners which could be improved, but I don’t see how a house this size can be cleaned adequately between tenants when there is only a 5 hour window to clean - sometimes after families that may leave a mess behind them. The house was stocked with all the kitchen items we could need, as well as bath towels, beach towels and toys, and other necessities. All in all, our party was pleased with this home and we would stay here again.
