Great location, responsive host, wonderful property. We appreciated the beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, rain umbrellas, soap, shampoo, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, spices and some pantry staples. We never needed the AC-just opened the windows for the lovely breeze! We used the lanai a lot.

We were here with my 3 friends for 1 week. Beautiful cozy house and well equipped kitchen. Community pool and jacuzzi were well maintained and clean. We feel the location was great, we had a car so we toured around the island. The only minus was we couldn’t get a hold of the contact person when we checked in (tried phone or whatsapp) and she didn’t return to us during the entire stay. We had questions about some outdated instructions and a fire alarm that was out of battery and beeping when we arrived. Despite of this would stay again here, we loved the house and felt very fast like at home.

The facilities were not as described. We never even found the pool or hot tub which were said numerous times to be “onsite”, but were actually 1 mile away in a “ community center”. No directions were left telling us where this community center was. There were plenty of rules and regulations posted but not even a courtesy map to assist in finding anything. 2 requests were made for onsite manager to contact us but never received a reply. We would have never booked this property if we had known the pool/hot tub weren’t onsite as repeatedly stated in advertisements.

I have stayed at The Plantations many times and I loved this unit. Everything was in great condition and loved having the window AC in the guest bedroom. That was a first for me in these units. All the others didn't have any type of AC in the guest rooms. All the beach gear was practically new, the Ninja appliances were great and the patio furniture was so comfy. This was the first time I had used the complexes pool and hot tub and they were great. Highly recommend checking them out at night! But the best part was Lisa. Her communication before and during was the best!

We were able to check in a little early so that was nice. We island hopped from Oahu with our son, daughter in law and grand baby!The location of the house was perfect, great size, well stocked with towels, bathroom supplies , stocked kitchen and even a dozen of roses on table! Love the snacks and chocolates too! The only down side was in the am we were checking out, we were stripping the linen off the couch bed and the mattress needs some attention-multiple stains and appears burn marks on side of mattress. Other than that, the place was perfect! Will definitely let people know about this place! Thank you for having a great place and making a great experience! I will definitely recommend you on my fb Kauai group!!

Came out to the island with my family, one toddler and a pre teen with the wife; this place was perfect for us. Kitchen was fully stocked, AC was amazing and perfect lanai to relax, have a drink and talk with the family. Quiet neighborhood so once you’re done exploring it’s the perfect place to relax and kick your feet up. Plenty of beach gear for the kids, although we didn’t use the kayak or bikes they were there for use and we thought it was cool. Would definitely stay again and the wife and I kept saying to each other how this was the perfect place for us. Definitely recommend staying.

The unit was just as described. Clean, well appointed and a great base for a North Shore vacation. The entire unit has central air, not that we needed it much in January as temps were very pleasant and just a touch cool in the evenings. I was concerned about the lanai on the first floor as these units do not have any barriers so you can just walk right up/off which doesn't give you much privacy, however as this unit doesn't look out onto the pool area it is actually much more secluded and we were able to use it a lot. Got lots of use out of the pool/hot tub, public grills and little gym as well. Check in was very easy and communication from vacasa was good. Overall a great place to stay, and we hope to again next time!

We came to Kauai for my oldest grand daughters 13th birthday - the Island was beautiful and the condo was wonderful roomy and comfortable we barbequed by the pool often I would gladly rent this unit again!

Very clean! Spacious and comfortable. Once I booked I received a text notifying me of all the checkin/check out amongst other information. Property managers were a phone call away. Upon arrival the place was clean and smelled fresh! Had everything we needed! Bikes, beach chairs and boogie boards were in great shape! Great space to stay for a family or even couples to share. The whole complex was nice. It gets a little noisy in the early morning hours (5am) being next to the road with residents leaving throughout the week but all in all it wasn’t bad. We would stay here again!

PROS: -Great location -Garage stall was a plus -The beach chairs, towels etc... was a great addition -Spacious and a lot of natural lighting -The view was nice -Working central air CONS: -The door code provided did not work. Had to call Vasca customer service for assistance. They provided the key lock box code to use the physical key to get in. -The beds are HARD. Not firm. HARD and uncomfortable. -The pillows were musty and smelled of the previous renters or that they have not been washed. -The pillows were not comfortable. They were worn in and flat. -The master toilet seat was broken and in every use it would slide around and move. Because of this, we did not use it and had to use the bathroom on the other side of the condo. -The white towels were stained with yellow coloring. -The couch was slightly broken as it sunk in. -The busy main road is right in front of the patio, so constant sounds of cars driving by making it not so relaxing. -The cleaner entered the property 10 minutes before checkout time while we were still there with one knock without waiting and letting themselves in. Uncomfortable and not OK. Overall, there are comparable rentals nearby in the same price range that I wish I would have gone with instead of this rental due to the busy road noise, hard bed, and easy fixes that were overlooked by management in turn creating a bad experience for our honeymoon.

We had a wonderful stay at this property! All of the great reviews were absolutely correct: very clean, well-stocked kitchen and linens, great location, and efficient management. We will definitely be back!! One word of caution that was not an issue for us, but could be to someone else: the tub/shower in the primary suite were a little difficult to access and the bed was very high, so beware if you have any physical limitations.

Super easy access, regular messaging from host, easy checkout. Space was clean and comfortable, easy to recommend again!

January 2024

The location and property itself was fantastic. Plenty of room for our family of four, and the amenities, including the spa, pool and workout room were great. The downside was that nothing had been cleaned properly prior to our stay; the bath towels had stains on them, so we had to wash / bleach the towels prior to us, and the plates, cups, pans and cooking utensils had food still stuck on them, requiring a deep clean prior to use. We were ecstatic to find that there was a no shoes rule in the house, as we practice the same rules at home, but the carpet was stained and dirty - so we didn’t quite understand why we were asked to remove our shoes - not to mention the fact that we felt rather grossed out walking around the house barefoot. Would have been totally fine with the somewhat exorbitant cleaning fee, if the place had actually been cleaned fully prior to our arrival, but I feel like we got hosed so the house could be cleaned minimally for the next guests. Easily a 5 star VRBO property if the place were maintained, but I have to give it 3 stars overall given the price we paid for what we got.

This unit is in a great location, close to Princeville market area, close to beaches. We were disappointed in the lack of upkeep of the unit. It was in need of carpet cleaning, curtains were filthy, little handprints all over glass items and doors. We went to use washing machine and the inside was covered in black mold. The place was also missing any kind of mixing bowl larger than a cereal bowl and there were no measuring cups only measuring spoons. Overall, the property manager was responsive and apologetic. She did let us do a late check out on our last day. If the place were maintained properly, I would recommend renting it.

This is a great place if you need a 3 BR condo (kind of rare). This is a very well kept property - very clean, well supplied kitchen, good beds, wonderful lanai. Our group of 5 (3 adults, 2 teens) had plenty of room and didn't feel like we were on top of each other over the course of the week. Pool is nearby. There is a ton of beach supplies - especially snorkeling gear - easily enough for as many people as you could have staying there.
David C.
January 2024

The property was great. Had breakfast on the lanai each morning. Beautiful landscaping and fun birds joined us each day. One problem, we had to call the neighborhood security twice as the upstairs residents had a loud party until 1:30 AM on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. They were responsive and not really the fault of the condo owner but worth noting.
David P.
January 2024

The house was nicely set up for 3 married couples with each bedroom having a separate bathroom attached. The kitchen was nicely furnished for common meals and fellowship. Each bedroom had wireless phone chargers…really nice. It was disappointing that the dishwasher did not work and that air conditioner located in the ceiling of the kitchen was really noisy and in need of repair.

After a very long day of travel with our 3 kids, i cannot even begin to say what an absolute blessing it was to check in to this unit and find it to be so amazing. It was clean, well furnished, and a great location. It is so rare to find a property with nice clean linens and good quality beds and pillows There always seema to be a pillow shortage at rentals but not here. It was absolutely perfect! Thank you amd we will be back.
