    Rustic with a Country Charm

    This was our first trip to Hawaii and since we didn't want to be in an area with so many tourist this was the perfect place to stay. Property was very clean and well kept. Lisa was great. She stopped to ask us how things were going and if we needed anything. Very nice view, easy driving to the North Shore area. We would definitely come back again. Mahola Lisa and Dian.

    Be ready to check your expectations at the door...

    Several aspects of the cottage were disappointing. It was difficult to tell from the posted pictures, but the “bedrooms” upstairs are just shared loft spaces, with zero privacy. For two adult couples, it was awkward and less than ideal. The second “bedroom” was tiny and we hit our heads on the low open beams several times. One bedframe has a broken middle support. The linens on the smaller bed had bleached out spots. Several things in the cabin were worn out, unclean, or in disrepair. Several blinds were broken, unusable or unsightly. A bedroom end table had a greasy film residue, which we had to clean. Window sills, air vents, decorative hangings, and loft railings were covered in many places with cobwebs and dust. We had to wash some dishes before use and the kitchen cupboards had numerous items left behind, including old cereal, used peanut butter, etc. (Some items are a plus for renters, but most of this needs to be cleaned out.) The sink in the bathroom is rusting. A pair of old, unconnected speakers in the dining room serve as plant stands. Most of the “vintage” furniture, décor, and accessories were not cute and quaint, but worn out and needing replaced. Drawers/doors were hard to open. Some light bulbs were burned out. The hairdryer handle was caked with a residue and numerous containers of misc. bathroom toiletries were under the sink. (Instead of being “amenities,” it felt like someone left all their old stuff behind.) The outdoor equipment was rather disappointing, including the dirty barbecue, moldy beach equipment, dirty styrofoam cooler, torn rain poncho, and broken boogie boards. The driveway is also a slight hazard (we scraped hard until learning to navigate it). In fairness, we did not contact the owner, because: 1) We were unlikely to find alternative housing options in our price range last minute; 2) Based on earlier reviews, the owner is probably already aware of these issues; 3) We had a relatively short stay there. On the positive side, the downstairs is spacious and the cottage setting is stunning, with beautiful landscaping. Further, the location was ideal for touring the island and for its relaxed pace. The back deck was wonderful! In the end, it wasn’t a terrible place, but we wished we had known going in what to expect (so, KNOW BEFORE YOU GO!). It was certainly not in keeping with our other VRBO and similar rental experiences. If the owner ever addresses these items, this will be a truly incredible place to stay.

    Fantastic property

    We loved our stay at the cottage. Beautiful views, comfortable and very relaxing. It's a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle. Absolutely the best way to enjoy Hawaii.

    4/5 Good


    Loved staying at this location. Very secluded for privacy off main hwy. Away from all the noise and tourist. Sitting out on deck relaxing and reading was awesome. We live out on a ranch so arriving with a few chickens in yard made us feel right at home. Only drawback for us was the bathroom downstairs and low ceiling beams in bedrooms, as were in our 70's. But we made it work. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting someplace to totally relax and enjoy Hawaii. It's your own little piece of heaven at the end of the day. Any questions or concerns Dian is quick to return an answer.....

    5/5 Excellent


    I was so very impressed. The location and home worked well for myself and girls for their first trip to Hawaii. It could not have been better. Thank You!!!
