I wouldn't go there to be honest. Super up right host. He constantly comes back and forth to the house. He kept making excuses about how the house wasn't ready and he needed things but that's no excuse because he had his home posted on airbnb. Then after letting checking at 9 b…

Response from Rich:
Hi I’m sorry to have to reply to this review, nice people yet last-minute reservation and I try to help out or men in the service. Here’s what happened for the benefit of people wondering why they’re such a low review: Main reason he mentions year was it was a group of four sailors yeah he put the reservation in as one person, I don’t think he understood that many places including hotels will try you from more people and I was in the Airbnb set areas for extra ga main reason he mentions year was it was a group of four sailors yeah he put the reservation in as one person, I don’t think he understood that many places including hotels will try you from more people and out was in the Airbnb set areas for extra gusers. Since I was traveling when I responded to him and they really were desperate for a place to stay, he told me the lowest price in town was $800 for a hotel room and most were over 1000 a night I let them know there was a charge for extra people over to $10, he was upset to hear that, and I explain why that Airbnb gift to host the right to say how many people can stay if people want to bring more people there can be a per person charge which was clearly set, I could tell he was upset even though when I finally question him there were four people it only put one down on the reservation request which I did not see it first since I was traveling I said we can work it out or if you prefer you can just call Airbnb and they can review it which evidently they did because they send me emails saying it would be an adjustment for the extra people as you can see in the review above he thought it was a choice for me calling it the nerve to charge for a friend to come over when it was actually for people, I think you didn’t understand it’s important to put the right amount of people on the reservation and that can affect the price, either way he wasn’t happy. The other thing that he mentioned was the place is not ready till later which was something I told him it was not available until it be clean, I was actually out of town and flew back in from my sons school banquet and I received a request for an Airbnb my Kneisel thought was the pass on it because someone I just checked out I was out of town and the maid have not been in to clean it I told him that and I received a response back in text message asking her to make a come another day that confuse me because most people want to place clean yeah it was not important to them and I found out why these for fine sailors were in town for two days on their shit and wanted to get off the boat and as mentioned before hotel rooms are expensive 3 to 4 times more expensive to my place and mine was a house I had a saucepot for them as I want to support our servicemen, and said the best I can do is see if I can get a made it here last minute on a Saturday. I was able to find somebody to come in but not for a few hours and that was some of the delay I even came , To help clean up note this is actually my house which I usually won’t rent unless I’m out of town but because of the unusual request and that they only had two days I tried to help them out, by the time it was ready it was evening keep in mind they requested early in the day but the same day and I don’t normally rent it out unless I’m at a town but wanted to help them out if I can get it cleaned by a maid in time in time. They got in, and because I had someone in my other unit I had to come by the next day and in the rush to clean the house vacuum and very cleaning supplies were in the house not in my normal full-time Airbnb apartment so had to ask him if I could come and get some things, and my son had left behind his medicine also another time that was the reason for me coming back. Once again this is not a full-time Airbnb place like many people this is my house so I live there and normally would have just passed and somebody making it a send a request I actually had to move out of the house to make room for them. So in summary it was a last minute request I tried to help them out in the future since it’s my house I wouldn’t trying get it ready for people in a rush it’s just that it helped out somewhere we travelers before that didn’t have a place to go and they watched as me in a mate cleaned up before and they were super appreciative, even taking me to dinner because they had not a reasonable hotel to go to that led me to do a special ever hear which was not appreciated and I know how his attitude change when I told him the right wrong number of people were injured so we can work it out or call airbnb which he did, and they told him it’s important to put down the right number of guests and the charges Need. To be paid. That appears to be the reason for the low rating not the extra few dollars for an extra friend it was for people which is fine as I love five people in my house but really two couples and single person otherwise people sharing beds, these guys decided to sleep on my sofa versus the futon I had. As it’s my house I’m not looking to help people sleep everywhere, and I should’ve known better that if you people can stay here but they need to be able to sleep in the same bed because there’s only two bedrooms and a living room. Well this may not of been a good match given for people wanting to sleep in separate beds and I only have two and a futon and additional futon, I know his friends were appreciative because they were all out of the house could party in relax mode at my house. He even texted me late at night to ask if they could stay another night and how much it would be I said will be the same price through Airbnb, I don’t think he liked the normal price he paid before I guess he was expecting some kind of discount but that wouldn’t be fair, and it appeared they enjoyed their time off and I’m happy at least they got a chance to get off the boat and enjoy some of Honolulu. So it sounds like they enjoyed the place wanted to stay longer although you wouldn’t know it for the review or the one store, as mentioned I could tell they were happy with having to pay for the four people staying not a friend stopping by, and wanted to express that, by the way I did gave them my reviews because they were nice people, this review is not reflective of my place, yet I will probably more selective when people want to make last minute Bookings, as in parties

We enjoyed our time at Rich's place. He is really hospitable, gave us some good suggestions, and communicates really well before and throughout our stay. It was a lovely, one-of-a-kind home. My family and I had a good time!

Rich的房子位置不错,离Waikiki车程16分钟,离最近的超市步行9分钟,社区很安静也很安全。有美丽的海景,房间非常干净,用品一切齐全,不过由于是木头房子,不同房间之间不隔音,对于家人而言,倒不是什么问题。我们入住期间,Rich在泰国度假,按他的说法,只有他度假期间,才会把整套房子出租,因为这房子是他自住的。房间里面有很多中国元素,例如汉字挂件等。我们每天通过邮件保持联络,处理例如wifi密码等问题,能感觉出他是一个很热情,细心的人。我推荐大家选择这套房。 Rich's house is in a great location,near to Wai…
