There were some unusual things happening during my stay. Someone was going in and out of the condo when I wasn't there. For example, a personal item of mine was taken from the condo. Not something expensive like my laptop that was sitting on the counter, but my beach goggles. Weird, right? Also, there were things being left there when I wasn't there. For example, someone's dirty socks were put in the drawer with my clean clothes. And, on one occasion when I was gone all day, upon my return, there was something in the toilet that I didn't leave there. Creepy. To me this was someone sending a clear message that I was not welcome. I am an African-American woman and I felt violated. Even though the owner stated nothing had ever happened like this before, I can't help to think that perhaps it was racially motivated. The owner was gracious and offered to change the locks, but I decided to leave instead. She did refund me for the days I didn't use.
On the other hand, the property grounds were amazing! Clean and well maintained. The condo was pristine - beautifully decorated, well stocked with necessities plus chair, umbrellas, etc. for the beach. The location was about an hour from Honolulu, but it sits right on the water so you get to hear and see the ocean waves 24/7. Beautiful!
