“Location Great! What You Get For Rental Cost Not As Good.”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014
people found this review helpful

If you are engaging in activities at Volcano National Park, the location of this property is great. The drive to the park only takes a few minutes. The rental agent, Krish, was very helpful, friendly and easy to contact. When we had problems with the security system more than once, she answered our calls immediately. The weather was quite cold during our stay so the fireplace in the middle of the main floor was wonderful. The hosts provided lots of burnable wood.

However, for the nightly rental charges, the house needs some upgrades. The mattresses were obviously older and not very comfortable. The house needs a more in-depth cleaning, ie, get rid of the cob webs seen throughout the house and especially the ugly black spider who is living in the kitchen light above the sink. There is a musty smell throughout the entire house. The allergies that a few in our group suffer from definitely kicked during our stay at Hale Hapu'u!

Management Response

All mattresses have been replaced since the time of this review - and we have re-covered the banquettes in cotton. The security system is updated and working well. Cleanliness is of utmost concern and if ever the Hale Hapu'u is not up to the standards of any guest they may contact me and I will send housekeeping to correct any issue. Keeping such a large house clean and fresh in the middle of the rainforest is an on-going challenge but we never stop upgrading the home. I have a new cleaning staff and am very happy with the state of the house at this time.
