      Good stay and poor communication with property manager

      Location of the property is perfect and the property is in excelent condition. Instructions for check in were poor, long and confusing.

      4/5 Good

        Affordable and convenient!

        I enjoyed my studio home away from home. Its location was convenient to Turtle Bay resort and all of the North Shore. At night I enjoyed the breeze from the trade winds. I was impressed with all the beach items at my disposal including chairs, snorkel equipment, beach mats, and hats. The iron came in handy too. I didn’t mind the walk to the public parking lot. I looked forward to it. I would have liked a table to sit at to read or eat, but other than that, I was quite content. I called Jason a few days before arrival and he emailed exact instructions for arrival. Nice and easy. I give it 4 stars.


          An inconvenient experience

          As a professional adult, I found the unit to be clean but over-rated with all the promotional information posted. I found the inconvenience as follows: 1- Repeatedly asking the owner for specific directions to access the property and found that to be time consuming. 2- Three times when I tried to go through the security gate, it connected to the owner and he wanted me to text him to get in? If it were not for the security guard, I would be lost to who to connect to to enter. He left no gate-pass card for entering without direct dialing. 3. The directions to enter the unit was without specific of having to turn the door nob as the lock was buzzing therefore, if I had not contacted him then, I would have been stranded until he returned my call. 4. When I emailed VBRO to find out when i would be receiving my deposit, there were no replies. Now I will revert to my credit card company to kook into this matter. 5. Because, I am not proficient using my phone or computer to download the information apps and feel it is not "user-friendly". Nothing would probably happen to improve your format for us older travelers n therefore I don't plan to use your online booking service in the future.


            Buyer beware!

            This unit is just a bedroom. Jason has put in a frig and micro but unless you enjoy eating in bed what's the point? It is just a simple bedroom. Turtle Bay restaurants are expensive and Haliewa is 10 miles away. Parking is confusing. Since this bedroom has been partitioned off from the apartment there are two doors ,neither labeled, which is confusing.


              Hot, small studio

              When we got there, we were unable to get in, we didn't have the entry code to the gate and the owner didn't answer the phone. We got in because another owner happened to let us in. When we went to take a shower, there was no hot water. We asked the neighbors about it, and they let us know that this happened to the previous renters. Again, I made many calls to the owner until it finally got fixed. Not a great way to spend a vacation. The studio is very small, and it's hard to use the hot plate to make food, because there is no place to wash the dishes. The studio gets very hot, even in the winter. I won't stay here again. There are nicer properties for the money.
