Beautiful Place!
Our party of 4 adults just returned home from staying in Nihilani 10C for two weeks. Upon arrival we were surprised that the condo presented itself even better than in the photos. It was beautiful. Very clean and well maintained, with only a couple of small exceptions (see below). Master suite and both other bedrooms were well appointed with everything you need for a comfortable night's sleep. Plenty of bedding, pillows and throws to choose from to customize your slumber. All three bathrooms were well-equipped with soap, and the usual paper supplies. They even provided a small bottle of laundry soap for the extremely handy washer and drying in the unit. Kitchen was arguably the most impressive. There were a few supplies that were obviously left behind by prior parties, like partial bags of coffee, pasta, rice, and oils/spices for cooking. Handy, but we weren't sure how long anything had been there, so we weren't totally comfortable using most of it. The kitchen itself, however, was very well appointed with well-working appliances overall. There were a few issues with a couple of the smaller kitchen appliances, like the coffee maker and toaster oven. First of all, who puts a TOASTER OVEN in a rental unit? Not only does it not work properly for TOAST (?), its design is dangerous because you burn yourself while pulling the toast out every single time. There was a part that fell out of the coffee maker when we first attempted to make coffee. We eventually jerry-rigged it to work most of the time, but it was a real pain in the arse. The only other minor complaint I have is that they provide a roll of paper towels, plenty of kitchen towels, and even a new in-the-package sponge. However, there is not a drop of cleaning solution - Windex, antibacterial counter cleaner, anything... - to be found in the entire joint. Do you want us wiping off the bloody fish counters with water? We couldn't deal with it, and bought a bottle of Lysol kitchen cleaner. Maybe that's their plan, but it would make a lot more sense to just provide it. Great location, views, pool that was ICE COLD the whole time (and only 4 feet deep), and many play toys to enjoy on location or at the beach! Coolers, knee boards, even a bicycle (flat tires, but there was a tire pump). Be sure to check out the supply of grocery shopping bags hanging in the garage - the grocery stores will charge you, so take them with you! Overall, great vacation home. We'd stay again.
