My husband and our two kids thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tamara's and Bob's Private Cottage and Gazebo. The property is quaint and peaceful. My kids especially enjoyed their privacy in the Gazebo, the natural waterfall steps away from their doorstep, exploring nature on the property, and catching geckos. My husband and I enjoyed a cup of coffee next to the waterfall and/or porch every morning and the quietness of the property. The owners Tamara and Bob were incredibly friendly and kind. Due to a morning excursion, we needed layers of jackets. Without hesitation, Tamara let use borrow theirs...that was very nice of her!
This is the perfect piece of paradise. Secluded, yet within easy access to most of the island. Once you turn up Iao Valley Road, it's like you entered another world. We couldn't believe how relaxing and beautiful the location and cottage were. Instant happiness! We loved being away from the typical tourist lodgings and noise. This place is awesome! Falling asleep to the frogs croaking and the sound of the waterfall, waking up to the birds singing...no words really describe it. The hosts, Tamara and Bob, were super nice and helpful. They have lived on the property for many years and provide a wealth of information for the asking. So glad we found this place. You won't be disappointed. Be sure to look for Bow!
I cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was at the Iao Valley Inn cottage. What gem!! We loved the seclusion, quiet, privacy, and tropical location. The cottage is fully equipped for all of your needs. Lovely tropical furnishings include a king size bed. The patio or lanai is covered and has comfortable outdoor seating and dining table. Perfect for enjoying the tropical setting and the lovely sound of the waterfall. Yes, there is a waterfall on the property as the Iao Valley stream runs thru the property. A real bonus. In addition to the cottage, there is a small detached gazebo which comes rented with the cottage and has been turned into a lovely bedroom. We never wanted to leave the premises, it was so lovely. However, when we did, it was only a short 10 minute ride into Kahalui and the airport was no more than 15 minutes away. We found the location was perfect for touring the Hana side of the island as well as upcountry and Haleakala. If you seek a place that allows you to experience the real Hawaii this cottage is certainly it. Hosts Bob and Tamara could not be more genuine and helpful. Highly recommended. A real value for the price.

We rented this lovely cottage for 3 weeks last winter. It had everything we needed and especially lovely are the owners Bob and Tamara. What's not to like about Maui? We liked the privacy and being away from the hustle and bustle of busier areas of the island. We loved it all so much, we are coming back again this year. Can't wait. Tamara and Bob also have rooms available in the main house vs this cottage. We saw them while we were at the cottage and they look more than fabulous. Either way, you win.
