Thank you very much Terry & Michael, we had a fantastic time at Entabeni Cottage. The view is amazing and it is such a peaceful place. It was easily the best place we stayed in Hawaii and we will definitely come back one day.

Owner's Response: Gentlemen, Thank you for your kind words. You are always welcome back and we enjoyed having both of you. Glad you could enjoy the run on the dirt road as well as the beaches. We were wondering if we were ever going to get you to leave as you seemed most comfortable hanging out at the cottage. This is a compliment to what we work to provide. You got it! Michael & Terry

Best stay on our 2 week trip through the islands.

  • 5 of 5

The Kristiansen's have an amazing set up. Everything about the stay was fantastic. They had everything we needed to be comfortable, including fresh eggs and veggies everyday. Even though we were conservative on the resources, you wouldn't really know that you were off grid. The location is great if you are looking to find secluded areas to hang out and enjoy getting away. Not so great for shopping or nightlife (which didn't bother us). Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We HIGHLY recommend staying here if you visit Maui. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: We hope to see you back for an anniversary celebration. You were model guests and it was a real pleasure having you here and being able to share the bounty of offerings we produce at the farm. Mahalo and may you enjoy many years of happiness together, Michael & Terry

Our Personal Island Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a picture perfect stay on the farm! What an epic slice of Earth, and the greatest hosts we could ask for. Be sure to pick up some groceries at Mana before you head up to Hana, you'll want to make some meals to enjoy on your private deck :) Can't wait for our next stay in paradise..
