- Honakoai Palms A-7. The over all quality; This unit was dated and filthy. As soon as I stepped into the unit I could smell old rotten wood. When I called the agent to find another unit, she was good to look into this matter and was polite and understanding. She was not able to get us into another unit because the island was busy and could not find something within our price range. Filthy! The cupboards were stinky, like old rotted wood. The Bathroom was dirty in the corners, the paint was pealing off, the dishes were greasy, old and miss matched. The pots were so grouse, the couch was so filthy and soiled I didn't sit on it once. The carpet had staines. It was nasty and discussing, it made us just sick. I cleaned the dishes that we used and just left them on the counter. Every time I opened the cupboards I would get a whiff of the nasty old wood smell. I had to air out the stinky towels and leave them on the bathroom counter so I wouldn't have to open the cabinet in the bathroom. There were ants every where, and I was not leaving food on the counter tops to cause that, the unit was infested in them. Over all discussing and filthy! Totally unsatisfied! When I booked this rental I asked the agent if it was noisy and if it was in a safe area and she said yes that it was on a beach road with a park across the street. The HWY was quite a bit away from this unit and that noise did not affect it. She gave me the address so I could google it and sure I could see that it was on a road and that the HWY was behind us with other buildings between. I thought that this would be nice with the beach across the way. Little did I know, it was so noisy that we were not able to sleep at night, there was a cross walk right in front of out unit and all we could here was cars and trucks stopping and going, horns and sirens from fire trucks and police cars all day and night. Many times we saw the police rushing into the parking lot across the road and the building next to us. There was a group of locals that would gather in the park and I'm sure there was criminal activity going on with the smell of pot lingering in the air. We felt unsafe. I would never recommend this unit or area to anyone. Even the girl that came to clean said that the place was discussing and didn't blame us for how we felt. If anything this was the worst part of the trip. We had never been to Maui before and it has really made us stop and think about whether we would return. We wanted to move out to a cleaner quieter unit but couldn't, so we looked into just leaving the island early but then though that we saved for 2 years to come here and it was unfair that we had to leave because of the filth of the unit and noise. We closed the windows and put a noisy fan on and wore ear plugs. We ate out and stayed away all day just to get some relaxation. The day of check out, which was at 11:00 am, Some guy was at out door trying to get in at 8:15 am. My husband said what are you doing, he said he was here to pick up the tables and chairs to refinish them. He said that unit was supposed to be vacant. So we let him in to take the tables and chairs. I can't believe it! This was the icing on the cake.
