The Perfect Couple's Getaway
The Perfect Couple's Getaway
My husband and I stayed there for a week and all I can say is, it was simply amazing! The cottage was really nice and clean..only problem we experienced was the heat. Theres's no a.c downstairs, only ceiling fans, so during the daytime it got pretty warm, but at night time it was cool and comfortable. The A.C unit is upstairs and it kept the top floor cool, but the sun would sometimes beam through the sliding door windows and make it a little warm...Blinds would have been a nice touch to help keep the room cool during the day, plus it would keep the glare off of the T.V screen. There's only a dvd player upstairs, would have been nice to have one in the masterbedroom as well, but oh well, not a big deal. We loved this place, We would wake up every morning to the sound of birds and the ocean breeze. The landscaping was beautiful...Keith you guys are so lucky to have such a wonderful place to call home, I'm so jealous:) We had candelight dinner on the Lanai which was very romantic at night as we would watch the sunset over the ocean. The view of the mountains and ocean from every window in the cottage, both upstairs and downstairs will take your breathe away. If anybody is looking for a place to spend time alone in seclusion this is the place to rent. Though the sofa was very nice, it would have been great to have a larger sofa for two to snuggle up on while watching movies. We had access to the pool which was great if we wanted to take a dip. I'm not a big cat lover, but there was this cat that visited our Lanai every morning and night, it kinda creeped me out at the beginning, only because cats make me nervous:) lol, but he was really sweet. I was just concerned he'd polk a hole in the screen door with his claws because he always clawed at the screen door. The cabinets were nicely stocked...we had to go out and buy some things of course like sugar, cooking oil, and seasoning, might need to buy a new set of pots soon though. They had plates, utensils, coffee mugs, glasses, dishwasher liquid etc which was great. It was also nice to have access to a washer/dryer and have soap powder available to use. They had plenty of clean towels, clean sets up sheets to use. Might want to change the lightbulb by the front door, it's so secluded and dark at night, that its prob a good idea to turn the light on by the front door if you know you won't return until after dark. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously! Keith thank you for opening your home to us! See u soon.
Owner's Response: It's nice to hear that our attention grabbing phrase "great views in quiet seclusion" is appropriate and appreciated. Great TV and DVD convenience is not our prime goal, but we'll work on improving it! Hard to keep the neighbor's cat off our lanai, but hopefully the screens will hold out. ( And there's no extra charge if you want to sleep with a kitty cat! ) I guess the pots and pans are being used (new ones are on order), and of course, that's one of the advantages in having a fully equipped kitchen where one stays, with a private gas grill BBQ just outside your entry door. Mahalo to all our guests for their comments and suggestions.
