Hawaii with Laundry

Pro: Excellent location, quiet, clean and just enough room for four adults. Friendly and helpful neighbors.
Con: AC only adequate for lower level not bedrooms and it leaked on floor if on for more than an hour. Don't purchase this option.
Hidden surprise- before you leave you have to wash all the bedding and towels or face $25 a load charge and the washer is a compact apartment size. It is impossible to leave only two loads because the king size bed alone is two loads. So expect to spend the end of your hard earned and paid for vacation doing chores.

Manager Response to Ma Load Ha

We want our guests to enjoy their time on the Big Island to the fullest. All we ask is that guests keep the townhouse reasonably clean and keep up with wash as it accumulates--extra cleaning is always appreciated but no last minute wash marathons required. Our policy toward cleaning is not a secret but clearly posted both in the booking information and in a summary of it and other information posted on the refrigerator. It is only in rare cases of extreme negligence that we have ever issued extra charges. In this case obviously none were issued.

As to the downstairs air conditioner, we installed it because a number of guests felt in hot weather it is nice to bath in a blast of cool air upon arrival and when returning from long adventures. It is almost impossible to install A/C upstairs in the louvered windows as well as blocking off the incredible view. The cross ventilation from louvered windows is generally sufficient, especially along with the ceiling fans and attic fan provided. A/C is an option not offered by most other townhouses. The leaking we assume is minimal and on the outside lanai, caused by evaporation. We will have our on-island contact and cleaner investigate this.
Review after review has suggested the merits of townhouse 2 from our unique location on a beautiful cove with reef laced beach to our lanai with dining table, lounge and ceiling fan to fully equipped kitchen to large locker filled with beach gear and beach towels to pleasant amenities and decor throughout.
We expect our guests to have a wonderful time and return time after time as many of our guests do
