Blissful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Terry and Michael have created such an exquisite retreat. The landscaping is filled with exotic plants. You can wander the property and explore this amazing jungle paradise. There are plaques in front of many of the plants giving you the common and latin names. The cats, chickens, and guinea fowl will join you as you meander.

The king sized bed is super comfortable and they have a variety of pillows. (Thank you for the soft, squishy ones!) The kitchen is well stocked. This place feels a lot like a family cabin, with extra stuff like hats, umbrellas, books, DVD's, bug spray, etc. there for you to use. The view is stunning. You could stay here for days and never even want to leave the property.

Be prepared to experience life in the jungle, off the grid. The water heater can be a little unpredictable. There are mosquitos, spiders and other insects. The guinea fowl can make quite a ruckus when they get going. These kinds of things don't bother us and we enjoy the adventure.

Overall, it was a fantastic stay and I would love to go back some day.

Unique Cottage in Beautiful Garden Setting with Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located in a beautiful garden setting with ocean views along the Hana Highway. Situated midway along the Hana Highway makes it ideal to break up your journey and see all the sights along the way to Hana. The cottage has all the amenities to make your stay comfortable. Terry is such a gracious host who provided a private tour of the property gardens, studio and farm. She even provides fresh eggs for breakfast preparation. Wished we had spent an additional night. This stay was a perfect compliment to our Maui vacation which included the typical beach accommodations. This place is booked 99% of the time for a reason.
