Kauai has emerged as one of the fasted growing destinations in the Hawaiian chain. Sadly, there are people looking to capitalize on this popularity and take advantage of innocent travelers. BEWARE...there is a company online using the website www.hawaiirentvillas.com. This is NOT a real provider of Kauai Vacation Rentals nor do they have homes on ANY island. They have taken homes advertised on other sites such as Trip Advisor, VRBO, Air BnB and other reputable vacation rental sites, and are representing them as available through their service. DO NOT BE FOOLED!!!
If it seems too good to be true, it most likely is a scam. The Hawaiian islands are pretty much sold out for the upcoming holiday season. If you are being presented available options and especially if the rates are being offered at a discount, YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED. If you are being offered perks such as airport transfers, free rental cars, free housekeeping and other free services, YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED. If you are asked to wire money to a foreign account, YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED. If you are offered an additional discount for paying in full up front, YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED. While you can safely wire money to a real rental agency, make sure it is a known US Bank. Do your diligence and only rent after speaking with someone on the phone. If they tell you they are too busy to speak by phone, YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED.
Myself and my fellow vacation rental agents and concierge service providers on Kauai are deeply saddened by this despicable criminal entity. We hope to figure out a way to rid the marketplace of such scams so that our valued clients and visiter's to Kauai, get to experience the memories they expect and desire. Feel free to reach out to us or visit www.houseofdreamskauai.com and we will be happy to advise and place you in the perfect Kauai Vacation Rental.
Have a wonderful Holiday Season...
