Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

There are many resorts, but even a few days spent in the natural beauty of Hawaii is a wonderful balance.

The photos and description do not do justice to this peaceful, beautiful cottage. It was quiet and a perfect place to read, walk and recharge. Gorgeous greenery and flowers abound. Funny chickens.

The hospitality was incredible. No detail was ignored... right down to the daily pastel hued egg delivery and the thoughtfully equipped kitchen.

We will be back!

Road to Hana Oasis

We really enjoyed our one night stay in Entabeni Cottage and wished we had planned to stay longer. The view from the back porch is spectacular even in the rain. The interior is spacious, well equipped and perfect for a couple. Michael and Terry are gracious hosts who work hard to make you feel welcome.

Paradise found....

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet, off the beaten track place to spend the last of our 3 week vacation on the beautiful isle of Maui. When we can across the words "solar powered flower farm" we were intrigued so we booked the place for the last 4 nights. From start to finish, we had a fabulous time enjoying walks through the garden followed by one of the cats, Kit and a gaggle of anxious Guineau Fowl flitting about. The place is completely off-the-grid although one can enjoy all the modern conveniences thanks to solar power and propane gas! We loved the stunning ocean views, comfortable bed, lovely 3 piece bathroom, fully outfitted kitchen, outdoor shower, lush tropical gardens, chicken coop and sound of rain the metal roof in simple harmony with chirping toads out in the garden enjoying a late night rain shower. Michael & Terry are charming, gracious hosts. What's not to like? We highly recommend this lovely place if you are looking for a quiet little corner to chill out for a while.

Cozy cottage on the side of the volcano

  • 5 of 5

Our three days at this ocean view cottage have been the most relaxing days since we arrived in Hawaii. The cottage was extremely comfortable with everything needed including the breakfast eggs. The ocean views during the day and the very quiet nights were the perfect combination for a peaceful vacation. Many thanks to Michael and Terry. We wish Terry a speeedy recovery
