“Great Location, Nice Design, However house does not cool off....”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Overall this house is in an excellent location and a bit more reasonable when compared with other vacation houses for rent close by. However there are some drawbacks. The house is well designed, has great interiors, much Polynesian, Chinese, Hawaiian art. Location is excellent, at the end of cul-de-sac right next to the Ching Yong Center and about 10 minute walk to the beach (Hanalei Pavilion). There’s an empty lot next door, great for a place for play – Frisbee, football, some kids live two doors over. Also look out for some fruit trees around that might be producing – banana behind the house, papaya in the empty lot next door, passion fruit (lilikoi) on the right side of the street on a driveway when walking towards town. Of the seven houses towards the end of the cul-de-sac, five are vacation rentals, and two are occupied by residents. In comparison with other vacation houses for rent in Hanalei, this house is somewhat reasonable.

However, A few notable drawbacks to be aware of: (1) The interior of the house is hot, it heats up relatively fast during the day and does not ventilate, and thus by the early evening will be hotter inside than outside. Only in the early morning is the house temperature comfortable. There are several fans in the house to use and these help to push the air around but do not really flush the hot air out of the house. (2) The company that rents this house is not very personable or empathetic in discussing the house and rental circumstances. The office is located in the Ching Yong Center, facing the main highway. Both via email, phone, and in person, the rep. we worked with (believe her name was Barbara) was a bit wooden both in email exchange and in person and fairly unconcerned when discussion questions / concerns regarding the house.
