Gorgeous place to stay

Totally worth the amazing drive to Hana, which doesn't take as long as you'd think, this is a wonderful place to stay with fresh fruit and eggs and lots of friendly animals, beautiful property to wander around, though why you'd leave the incredible lanai that runs the length of the house and provides a wonderful site to wake up to in the morning. Great decor, Terry and Michael have everything you need and are so friendly and helpful about things to do. Must dos include the bamboo forest/400' waterfall at Haleakala NP, Thai food, the seven sacred pools.... BTW Terry and Michael, thanks so much for telling us to stop at Mama's Fish House - delectable food and the beach and fish pools were the perfect way to spend our last evening before our night flight.

Highlight of Trip

We loved Hana because of this amazing little place. Terry and Michael work hard to make this place warm and inviting. We stepped in and felt at home and knew we had made the right choice. Everything was extremely well taken care of. There was everything you needed to cook, relax, and enjoy the rainforest.
Some of the things that make this place wonderful are the outdoor, heated shower (heavenly with some rainfall, just put your towels in the dryer for a few minutes while you are out there so they are nice and warm!), the views of sunrise from bed, the gorgeous flowers all over the grounds (why go to a botanical garden?), the well maintained appliances and cookware (everything you need!), and the remoteness.
Don't plan on using a cell phone during your stay, it won't work! But that makes it so relaxing! We are in our mid-20s and are always connected, but we completely enjoyed the chance to relax and enjoy each other without distractions. However, they do have Wi-Fi and a phone with long distance for guest use, if you feel you need it. But you are in the rainforest so relax and enjoy the remoteness!
Terry was so wonderful, she offered us fresh vegetables from her green house, which were delicious! And even gave us suggestions on how to cook them if I wasn't sure. She greeted us upon arrival with bananas and a tour of the cottage to make sure we had everything we needed and knew how everything worked. After a particularly bad rainfall overnight (minor tropical storm, its the rainforest, expect it!), she even stopped by in the morning with a weather report and some suggestions about our activities for the day. Terry couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming.
Definitely recommend staying here and don't look elsewhere!

Hidden Gem in Hana

This was the second stop in Maui for our honeymoon. We stayed in West Maui for the first two night, then headed for Hana for the next two. After doing some research, we decided to pick a place to stay two nights in Hana instead of waking up early to drive the "road to Hana" and then back the same day. It worked out perfectly. This way we avoided all the morning crowd and didn't have to wake up super early ourselves. We're on our honeymoon, so why kill ourselves. We got up, had breakfast, checked out of our West Maui hotel and started driving to Hana around noon. It was the perfect way to do as it was not crowded at all and we had the road to ourselves. Most of the traffic were moving against us as the early morning crowd started to make their way back West. And the next couple of days we got to see and experience the different spots and activities in Hana without the need to rush anywhere.

Michael and Terry provided us with great tips and instructions along the way to the cottage. We picked up few groceries before leaving West Maui and made it to the Cottage in time for supper. We knew it was going to be beautiful from the photos, but actually thought that the photos didn't do it full justice. Terry greeted us and gave us a warm hospitable tour of the cottage as well as fresh eggs (from their own chicken) and bananas. The cottage itself was perfectly situated on the side of the mountain with an awesome view of the ocean. Because of the location of the property, we were basically in the rain forest. Gentle showers would come and go throughout the day and night. Some stronger than others, but none would last longer than 10 minutes.

My wife loved the entire cottage from the location to the interior design and how everything was meticulously put together. She even mentioned, "This is how I would love to design our home". Thank you Michael and Terry for making our honeymoon in Hana a memorable one.

Great place to stop on the road to Hana

We were so lucky to find this property. They had a one night stay available the night we needed it—everywhere else was fully booked or required a longer stay. Terry and Michael usually require a two night stay also, but agreed to fit us in between two other rental parties. The property was easy to find and the cottage was spotlessly clean. The rent plus the cleaning fee really added up but there was no way I was going to drive all the way to Hana and around to the other side in one day!

Entabeni Cottage was in a fantastic location for touring some of the sights we were interested in: Lava Tube Caves, Kahani Garden and the powered hang glider lessons (unfortunately cancelled due to high winds). For those that want to see all the sites between Pa'ia and Kula a two night stay would be a better choice—there are so many places to stop along the way. I must say, seeing the other coast was well worth the trip around the island. So don’t go back the way you came!

There was no doubt that we were in a rain forest when we arrived. The day was stormy and the cottage felt cool and damp—it was February after all. I regretted not bringing my ‘Seattle pajamas’ with me. I was totally inept at building a fire in the wood stove and only succeeded in filling the cabin with smoke. We solved the problem by taking hot showers (indoors) and sinking into the huge soft king-size bed and throwing on a couple of comforters. The sounds of nature surrounded us as we drifted off the sleep—no street lights or road noise to bother us. Fortunately we had just enough food with us for dinner and breakfast because there really isn’t much of a grocery store nearby or sit-down restaurants. The cottage is stocked with everything you need for cooking—except the food!

Our stay at Entabeni cottage could not have been better. The cottage itself is very homey and comfortable, and beautifully decorated. It's quite private from the main home, and surrounded with amazing plants and flowers. Michael and Terry were generous hosts, and great to connect with. We especially loved the animals on the farm. We have such fond memories, and would go back in a heartbeat.
