GECKOS: They are gentle creatures that resemble lizards and eat bugs. Please pardon our geckos. Mother nature is still in control of our environment here in Hawaii. They are a natural pest control system. They may occasionally chirp so do not be alarmed.
ANTS & ASSORTED INSECTS: You may see small ants or other assorted insects around the home. They are impossible to eradicate in this tropical environment. They are attracted to the cool, moist environment that a house provides and should not be construed as a sign of uncleanliness. They particularly enjoy food that is left lying out. You can help reduce their visits by keeping the counters and sink clear of any open food and washing dishes promptly. Although the home is routinely sprayed for such insects, we cannot eliminate them.
During your stay, you may encounter some of the following, but don’t be alarmed as the majority are harmless: Spiders - Roaches - Centipedes-
Cane spiders are rather large and look ominous; they are not poisonous and usually try to avoid people.
You may experience the flying ones; they are harmless. Keep screens, doors and windows closed, especially at night, to keep them out.
Show up on occasion. They will sting, but are not poisonous, unless you are allergic. It is always good to wear slippers at night to avoid encounters. Sweeping them outside is best.
NOISE: You are living in a residential neighborhood and there are neighbors next door to you. Your cooperation in being considerate of them will be greatly appreciated and expected. Quiet hours are from 9:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., during which time any noise from this home shall not unreasonably disturb adjacent neighbors.
FURNITURE: If you have oil or suntan cream on, do not sit on padded furniture indoor or out-door unless you sit on a towel. In short, show the same consideration to the furniture as if the home was yours. Please do not take any furniture from inside the house to the outside.
CONSERVATION: Electricity and water are very precious commodities here on Maui. It is very important that you be aware of good conservation habits. Avoid leaving lights on when they are not needed and turning off the air-conditioning units when windows or doors are open or when you leave the home for long periods of time.
OCEAN DISCLAIMER: The shore break and wave activity can vary from hour to hour in all locations on the island so please consult with county lifeguard staff (where available) regarding safe swimming conditions and strictly observe all posted signs and flags. Never turn your back to the ocean when in the water and never swim alone or in an area where you see no one else in the water. You enter the ocean at your own risk. Do not underestimate the power of waves breaking off the shoreline. Jellyfish or other stingers can be present in all Hawai’ian waters each month during the full moon or after a strong swell.
We will have a professional cleaning service do a touch up mid-week cleaning during your stay and a complete cleaning after your departure. Please turn off all ceiling fans, a/c, lights, stereo and lock all doors and close all windows. Please make sure that the front door is locked.
