Home comfort at Poipu Carter, Koloa HI
Location of property was excellent - walk to snorkeling and swimming at Poipu Beach, and sea turtle coves! The office staff greeted us with a welcome beverage - classy. Very well stocked kitchen for cooking "at home": newer appliances, 2 microwaves, pots, pans, baking dishes, wine & bier/beer glasses, pasta strainers, etc. Owner of the condo forgot to mention rather important perks: the above kitchen items, 2 bath robes provided for use, automatic ice cube maker - for those beverages, plenty of large & clean beach towels to use, plenty of extra bath and kitchen towels - with wash cloths and kitchen cloths, plenty of "starter" lotion, shampoo & condition - we stayed 10 days and had plenty. The 2nd story deck had a clothes drying rack - how thoughtful of the owners. This condo is clearly someone's home, and we treated it as such - sorry that others did not. The shower head needs to be cleaned with CLR - as it was slightly clogged, one kitchen door had a broken hinge - no one had told the office / owner that repairs are needed. There is no air conditioning, but it is really not needed as ceiling fans got the job done. There were a few minutes of small "bug" issues, but this condo is in a tropical area and this is to be expected. Overall we were very pleased with this condo - we wish to thank the owners for allowing us to rent their home. Dawn & Tony Overall we were very pleased with our condo and the price was not too bad. P.S. This condo is near the local shuttle stop and worth the 50 cent one-way adventure into Koloa town and other near by adventures - what a surprise. We did rent a car for only 2 days for further travel , but did very well with the local shuttle buses.
