A Trip Back in Time!
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We arrived at night in pouring rain, exhausted after a long journey from Canada, and bad tempered after getting lost, but the moment we walked in we were soothed by the Hawaiian music, the welcoming flowers, fruit, and the restful atmosphere. This 60's Sea Side Cottage was perfect for our need to relax and recoup, so restful with the sound of the waves and the coqui frogs at night, and very private! I particularly loved the old fashioned bathroom with a huge counter for all my junk, and the old fashioned ceiling fans in every room! Please don’t change a thing, we will be back!
I sat out every morning on the lawn above the fish pond, with my mug of coffee, to watch the sunrise, such a rewarding experience!
The tidal fish pond was a delight, the exotic fish all had different characters, we even named a few. The beautiful large green gecko which appeared around the cottage was so interested in our goings on, we called it Kiki, and the cheeky tiny one was junior! We even had a mongoose named Morris who liked to steal the fish food! The weathered teak deck furniture was also perfect for our needs.
I had fun snorkeling in the pond, though we spent time every day in the nearby Ahalanui volcanic hot pond. Most therapeutic, my husband who has a crushed vertebrae, found it most beneficial. The fish here were also very interesting! The tidal pools at Wai’apae were also fascinating!
We loved the local markets and virtually lived on fish and fruit! Great Wednesday Luau at Kalapana, great music, great food, wonderful tropical drinks, great local people who made us so welcome and involved us in the dancing, I even got Hula lessons from the local experts, so much fun for a very senior couple!
Mahalo for making our stay so memorable.
