“Comfortable”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The Chung Cottage is a great place to rent for a comfortable, casual place to stay. The enclosed yard is great to kick a ball around and the new floors inside are great. Our older kids stay there when we vacation in July and they love it. Close to town and the beach.

We knew this place would have some drawbacks going into it, so we arrived with no huge expectations. amazingly, when we settled in, we managed to actually grow affectionate for the place. As previous reviewers noted, it fulfilled our needs completely: close to beach and town, quiet, breezy, beach toys, grill, and 4 beds! It was perfect for our 3 and 5 year olds, who liked the yard, the cartoons on the tv in the morning, the lizards and frogs, doves, sparrows, and easy walk everywhere. Yes, it is a little shabby but if you can get past the aesthetics, it is pretty great. We thought it was truly amazing that a non- updated property was in this million-dollar neighborhood, which actually made the place seem charming. It is a real, traditional Hawaiian beach house. Loved the clothes line outside to dry all the wet stuff from the beach, the hooks and shelves for little things, the shower by the back door so you don't track sand in, and washer/ dryer worked great. Cooking was a a bit of pain with the cheap old cookware and funky stove, incl doing dishes (no dishwasher). Also it is worth noting that there are 2 rather steep steps up to the living room which would be tricky/ dangerous for a toddler who is crawling or learning to walk. Also would like to note that though the house has a separate bedroom, the wall does not go all the way to the ceiling. Good for air flow, not good for privacy.

This review is from a repeat guest with our company and we are very surprised to see this post. They came into the office during their (discounted) 3 week stay to discuss their return for 2014 and rebooked-not once did they mention any of these items on this review.
We of course would have immediatley addressed their concerns had we known. We have passed this on to the owners (who happened to be the next arriving guests) and they have replaced a TV set, a new larger BBQ, a new outdoor dining table and chairs, a new standing lamp. The queen bed was replaced this year as well. They are also considering installing a new outdoor shower.
This house is not a new or luxury property and is just as advertised-a budget property in a beach town-a considerable bargain compared to other properties in the area.

Aloha to our guests-We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and appreciate the feedback on the Cottage-we have had a busy season this year and will make an effort to do some deep cleaning as soon as we get a break in the calendar. We will also address the televison issue..
Many guests also love the "retro" feel of this former Fishermans' cottage-a rare jewel in Hanalei
We look forward to your return-
