We stayed at Palm Cottage during spring break for 11 nights. It was absolutely wonderful! As the property is behind a secure gate, it was on beautifully maintained grounds, oceanfront and very private. Many times we watched the whales frolicking in the distance from the lanai. Several beautiful swimmable beaches were a 5-10 minute walk away, including Baby Beach where we saw turtles several times. Paia is a charming town with lots of characters and friendly people. Don't miss Mana Foods, an awesome natural foods market with lots of locally produced food. The cottage itself was more than adequately furbished for cooking our own meals. Our kids loved the twin beds and our double was super comfortable. All in all a wonderful stay, we highly recommend it!
