If you are interested in tropical plants in a peaceful environment and enjoy the sounds of birds, Entabeni is the place for you. We are connected to nature and all that nature has to offer.
Delicious eggs, organic vegetables, spectacular views, tropic fruits when available, and an opportunity to commune with nature at your doorstep.
So glad we took Terry's advice and extended our stay! 3 nights allowed us to visit the waterfalls, the beaches, and spend time on the Lani soaking in the incredible view. Hana is like being on a different island! Bryan & Kathie Ca.
We loved our stay at Entabeni Cottage. The grounds are so beautiful, the cottage view spectacular, the cottage itself has everything one needs, and our hosts were wonderful. And we so appreciated the fresh eggs and salad greens. We hope to return one day to this little slice of paradise.
Views of sunrise from the cottage were amazing! We had a quite and relaxing stay, enjoying the beautifully cared for gardens. Fresh eggs daily and occasional visits from the adorable guinea fowl. Terry went out of her way to set up a pack and play for our newborn. We'd love to visit again!
My partner and I stayed here for one night while on vacation in Maui, and we wish we had stayed much longer, as this was our absolute favorite place during our whole trip! We loved everything -- from the tropical landscape to the beautiful view, unique decor, fantastic back porch, comfortable bed, wood burning stove, musical wind chimes, and the most welcoming hosts. The cottage was the perfect spot for rest and relaxation. It had everything we needed, and it was conveniently located along Hana Hwy (close to wonderful waterfalls, hikes, and beaches). We would love to come back, and we would definitely stay here again!
Terry was a fantastic host (along with her husband and the many animals who live on the property)! Our stay at the cottage was hands-down the highlight of our stay on Maui and we were so sad that we only booked one night there.
Terry provides all the basics and then some! Wood-burning fireplace, outdoor grill, robes, slippers, DVD library, kitchen appliances and cutlery, etc. The farm/gardens on the grounds are lovely as well. She was incredibly friendly and gave us great tips for exploring the area. One bonus is that she let us leave our bags at the cottage after checkout so that we could explore Hana a bit more before moving on without having to worry about leaving our bags in our car.
If we ever visit Maui again we'll certainly be making a stop here - and hopefully for a longer stay. :)
This was our fourth stay at Entabini Cottage, and each time gets better. We strongly recommend staying at least two nights, and more if your schedule allows. It is so relaxing to sit on the covered porch, with the beautiful ocean view, and enjoy the sounds and sights of the lush tropical garden. A stroll through the grounds is rewarding in that names of plants are identified with small signs, and the friendly dogs and cats will accompany your walk. Fresh eggs and vine-ripened bananas are welcome treats. The cottage is truly decorated and outfitted with the traveler's comfort in mind. Entabini Cottage and owners Terry and Michael, really offer true Aloha spirit and comfort.
