We arrived at the cottage after dark and our hosts had left the lights on, music playing and windows cast wide open with the soft ocean breeze floating through. It was a perfect welcome, except we couldn't really see the surroundings. But then morning came. When the sun rose we pulled back the drapes and were stunned by the incredible view and the ocean which seemed almost close enough to touch. Spectacular! We spent two weeks in Maui and the four days we spent at the cottage were hands-down the best four days of the trip. We lamented not being able to stay longer (next time, indeed!). The cottage was well appointed, impeccably clean, surrounded by the most well-manicured garden in the neighborhood and Sandi and Dan gave us so much privacy we were able to pretend we actually lived at this place on Hamoa Beach! One day it rained most of the day but we simply sat on the lanai in our shorts with books and the amazing view, enjoying every bit of the warm, tropical downpour. Plenty of things to see and do around Hana, which all the guidebooks will steer you, but sitting on our lanai and drinking in the surroundings was a highlight by itself. Great place, great location--we've raved about it to all our friends, especially those who are aching for a second-honeymoon location.
