I would agree with another's review that this location is amazing! Located across the street from a lovely beach was the best part.
-The reason I say "deceptive advertising" is that the pictures make it look like the hot tub and outside shower are near the yurt and private. The outside shower, although hot, was not in the least bit private other than you had walls around you. It was located across the yard and the neighbors porch oversaw the shower. Literally if there was someone on the neighbors porch they could see your head as you showered. Horrible location. I assumed the shower would be next to the yurt.
-Also, the hot tub is located under the house in a garage like area. We used it once. It was relaxing but again terrible location and a little deceptive in the advertisement.
-The grill worked but the grill area was completely rusty. Yes, we cooked our steaks on rust.
-The bathtub was nice but took forever to fill because the fixture was a kitchen sink fixture not for a tub so the water came out very slow.
-Bathroom sink was clogged and took forever to drain so we brushed our teeth in the kitchen sink.
-I have no problem paying a cleaning fee but $75 for such a tiny place that you are expected to clean half of it yourself is bad form on the owner's part.
-The bathroom walls did not go to the ceiling and the door was a curtain.

Best part was the location. I'm very disappointed that the advertising was so deceptive. What you see is not what you get. We have rented a lot of places and this is the first negative review I have left. Sorry.

Aloha, thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us.
Were sorry that your stay was not what you were expecting.
We have taken some time to note on our website that the hot tub, bar b que , and outdoor shower are all located under the main house in a common area. We advertise the shower as a garden shower, which means in an outdoor setting. Though someone may be able to view the top of your head (or your feet) the shower is private and enclosed where a persons body is never visible.
We have also tended to the housekeeping issues mentioned (clogged sink and rust on bar b que) .
As the Yurt is a tent structure - the bathroom walls cannot go to the ceiling, this is common in yurts.
We are happy to hear that you appreciated our location, we agree -it is very special!
Aloha "Kimos Yurt"
