A fantastic escape from it all. We want to go back! The Hana Hwy is a test to drive out there, but well worth the adventure you have started. The house is surrounded by rain forest and the edible palms plantation. You can walk through the grounds and see the many fruits in abundance. Waking up to the sounds of the birds and more, the sites, and laid back feel of it all. Close enough to Hana to be a great HQ for the daily adventures of eastern Maui, instead of using up time driving the Hana Highway each day. From your first steps up to the door, you are immersed in the way of Maui life. With 4 beach areas nearby, we photographed beautiful sun rises each day, and stars from the front porch at night. Robin and Andrew are great hosts, I loved reading your book during my down time. I could easily live there and never leave. I definitely left part of my heart there in Hana. Jason V
Disappointing for the price. Shower curtain terribly obsolete, no food disposal or dishwasher. Surroundings were great but amenities sparse.
Loving the look of the outside of this cottage in Hana was what sold me on booking it for our overnight stay.
Unfortunately that was the best part about it, the outside.
After being woken several times throughout the night by noises, which we felt were coming from inside we couldn't find the result until the am when we woke up.
Upon finding mice droppings on the night table by my head, several droppings in the bathroom, kitchen and having to throw out our Aunty Sandys banana bread that we were saving for breakfast as it was nibbled on by the mice/ mouse.
There is also significant mold growing in the bathroom on the ceilings and walls and the fridge freezes your veggies and fruit ( had to throw out).
For the amount we paid for the night definitely was a huge let down.
Great location and very nice and relaxing place to stay for small family, or couple. Plenty of space. House was very clean and cozy with an awesome partial ocean view. Home had everything we needed. Host was very easy to communicate with and even provided tips for our stay, including places to visit. Only wish we could have stayed longer!
I booked the cottage knowing it's not refundable. Unfortunately we could not make it on the original date and I was 100% I will not get my money back. However Andrew said that if he would find a guest for our date he would give us the money back. And he did!
Decent people are rare and should be praised!
