Relaxing cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Sybil’s cottage. It was the perfect place to unwind and relax. Great location near Hana and across the street from the Venus pool. Highly recommended!

Quiet, relaxing, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Ohana guest house. It was so spacious, comfortable, and well supplied with everything we needed. It is surrounded by tropical rain forest, which made for beautiful views and sounds. The location was perfect, just across the street from the Venus Pool (a great swimming hole) and cliffside walks by the ocean. It was so quiet and relaxing, we wanted to stay for much longer!

Owner's Response: I so appreciate Rhoda and Lawrence taking the time to comment on the "soothing oasis", as we try to stay on top of the cottage's environment, and all the accoutrement within.

Rainforest convenient

  • 3 of 5

The house is fifteen minutes past Hasegawa's Store in Hana town. It is a nice house with an interesting layout. The things inside the house were somewhat worn and the carpet was stained in spots (usually not something I'd be too concerned with, but they chose to withhold money from the $200 deposit stating that we'd stained the carpet. We did not.). The tropics are hard on things and this place needs to be fluffed up and refreshed, shown some love and supplied with some decent reading lamps. We had to ask the owner to supply a couple of reading lamps because there were only recessed ceiling lights in the high ceilings and they were pretty low intensity. The lamps were funky and looked like they'd been stored in a garage somewhere for a while. These are just little things, but in the aggregate, they weighed against the great bones of the house. The jungle was right outside the windows and it feels far away from the water's edge, though it is not.

Comfortable, complete, & beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely five nights here, going out on adventures in Hana and Kipahulu by day. It's a convenient location for a base to enjoy all of Hana.

The cottage is very much a home. The layout is logical and gives two people plenty if space. The bed was really comfortable. We loved going to sleep and waking to the sounds of nature, as if we were in a treehouse surrounded by the living art that is the Hawaiian rainforest. From the bedroom, there are floor to ceiling sliding doors and windows three sides, and all you see are beautiful green plants of all shapes and sizes, top to bottom.

I was surprised at how quiet it is at night. Just the nighttime birds & insects and the breeze blowing through the leaves.

One of the best things about the house is that it is completely screened in, every door and window, even the porch, which is a double screen because the house is screened as well. I was a little anxious about bugs in Hana, because mosquitoes love me and their bites leave me in agony for days. I didn't get one single bite here. I did wear long sleeves and long pants at sunset and night and used a little lemongrass essential oil. We were also careful to keep the house lights low at sunset and early evening.

We enjoyed making our own meals & smoothies in the little kitchen. It includes a full size refrigerator/freezer (with ice maker), oven, stove, grill (outside), Ninja blender, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven and plenty of good utensils, glasses, mugs, and dishes.

The bathroom and shower were good. Good water pressure, usually as hot as we wanted or at least warm (solar powered). Plenty of extra towels and a washer and dryer. A couple times the toilet was finicky and didn't flush quite right but it worked after two flushes.

There were just a few critter encounters inside the house, which we expect in the tropics. A gecko set off the smoke alarm, zipping in and out. There were also some tiny ants. I really did not mind these at all so long as nothing bit me. There were actually far fewer indoor creatures than I have experienced in other Hawaiian homes.

The wifi and tv worked fine. Lots of reading material, too.

We walked across the street to the Venus Pool twice - so nice to have beautiful swimming hole so close to us!

Ohana Cottage has everything you need and more. It is a beautiful retreat, nicely maintained and fully furnished and equipped.
