“If you like quant hawaii. this is the place!”
Reviewed 7 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We did enjoy our stay at Hale Kawehi. The house was a collection of a families treasures. However, the treasures sometimes stood in the way of convenience for guests. A dishwasher was needed as well as a washer and dryer unit. Other conveniences such as a more modern bathroom with counters would help. We found out the doors were to be kept open with only the screen to keep someone out. This was rather frightening to ladies who like locked doors. That said the experience was unique and worth the visit.

Management Response
6 Nov 2013
I am sorry my Utah guests did not appreciate this Hawaiian classic home which is in sharp contrast with my other guests that stay here for the authentic Hawaiian experience. On their specific complaints: 1. The house has a security system to include sensor lights, surveillance cameras and security door locks and interior door locks. All of this information is in the house manual which they apparently overlooked. 2. The kitchen has full amenities to include a dishwasher and a coin operated washer and dryer as advertised. 3. To modernize the charming bathroom would destroy the integrity of this vintage house. There is a huge bathroom closet for toiletries. They placed a living room table in the bathroom and left the potted plant on an antique chair that was ruined and is now being restored. I did not charge them for the damage. 4. The house is advertised as"authentically Hawaiian art" which may have been overlooked. Perhaps hotel accommodations may have even more suitable for this guest.
