Beautiful cottage in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever stayed. The lush tropical plants and trees, the spectacular views of the blue ocean, and the gentle breezes combine to make it paradise on earth. Michael and Terry are wonderful hosts.

An escape from reality!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late afternoon after a very scenic and spectacular ride on the road to Hana in our jeep (a must)! As we drove up the driveway the anticipation was killing us since we were so happy to be there finally (we booked almost 8 months in advance and several emails (thank you for being so patient and yes she wrote back to them all) to Terry, the owner). Michael, Terry's husband/owner greeted us in the driveway and took us into the cottage to give us information and a walkthrough. As we walked in it took our breath away! The landscape, view of the ocean, open air breeze (all the windows and doors were open) and comfort of the cottage was spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed cooking meals and eating and of course drinking our wine out on the front porch. The bed was comfortable (sheets amazing), the indoor shower was refreshing (didn't get a chance for the outdoor shower, next time) and the wood stove was so perfect. We cooked (wonderful webber grill and several spices etc in the cottage) and used the fresh eggs and veggies given to us everyday from Michael and Terry's farm/chickens. We had visits from the guinea fowl and Michael and Terry's cats. Terry and Michael were amazing! We ventured over to their house on the property to have conversation about the area and their lives, they were so inviting! The location of the cottage was perfect to explore that side of the island (came here before heading to west Maui later in the week). We went hiking (Pipiwai trail was awesome), stopped at the beaches, went to the botanical gardens, lava tube explore and of course the black sand beach. We bought delicious beef at the Hana Ranch Store, ate at the food trucks and stopped for refreshing Mai Tai's at Travassa. We even spoke to Peter, an older Hawaiian gentleman building a lava rock wall for none other but Oprah Winfrey. The stay at the cottage couldn't have been any better. For sure spend more than 2+ days, we wish we had been there for a full week (we spent 5 days). The one thing that I will say bothered me was that there was an article in the Maui times that frowned upon these vacation rentals due to a variety of reasons. Finding this cottage was a gem and if there weren't people like Michael and Terry that had this opportunity to rent out their cottage (very very reasonable price), people like myself (average working class person) wouldn't be able to truly experience Hana. We thank Terry and Michael so much for their generous hospitality! Mahalo!

Great Hana Value

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for couple. Convenient to Hana area attractions. Private. Though considered somewhat off-the-grid, still extremely comfortable. View from deck would be marvelous during sunny weather. We appreciated Terry's monitoring of road conditions and alerting us as our plane arrived in Kahului.
