As a family of four this was beyond our expectations.This place is well maintained and CLEAN!It has all the kitchen tools.Our 16 year old daughter and our 11 year old son had plenty of room inside this spacious cottage.Loved the views from all the windows.Enjoyed the fresh papayas and limes..always plentiful.The master bedroom was spacious with lots of closet space and even a dresser.The extra bedroom too had a huge closet and a dresser(great mirror closet doors so you could see yourself..after the beach burns!)the kitchen is very roomy and loved the fridge with the ice maker. This place has a great open concept.The ceiling fans are a bonus.We were always comfortable in here,never too cold never too hot.Thats upcountry for you..another bonus to staying here.The extra daybed in the living room is very comfortable for sleeping..our daughter told us..plus when we would use it to sit or lay on in the evening it was comfy.. I loved the fact there was a washer and dryer plus a clothesline right below us..of course all the launder soap and other laundry liquids were all there for our use..very convenient.The lanai to sit outside is super.The doors leading out to this lanai are great. At times when we would sit out there we would leave them open..bringing the outside in..great!The yard is well kept with lots of flowers and trees and sugarcane.The owners property is private from where you are.You can see their home however, its obvious its 2 separate yards..very well planned out.The owners are great!! Maggie and John are Extremely gracious as well as welcoming hosts. Its worth taking the time to talk to them before you begin your adventures on the island..they are very informative and will answer your questions.
You will need a car.We rented one and went thru only 2 tanks of gas in 12 days! And we went all over(ford focus) .This place is also easy to find from the airport. As a family we were close to Hana highway, Twin falls, Kula road, zip lining activities and we even found lava tubes to explore.Bamboo forest and the rainbow eucalyptus trees are a must! (20-25 minutes). The choice of beaches were plentiful and beautiful 5-10 minutes depending on which one.Paia, a hip and cultural village are close. Great food and entertainment plus shopping were found in this great place.Tortillia's, they sell great fish tacos plus delicious burritos for a great price.The fish market and Flatbread company are great.Mambos Too!Enjoy!We highly recommend this cottage.It has it all
