Everything I Was Looking For
Honolulu was great, they kept handing me delicious drinks with pretty flowers in them, but The Peaceful Cove was really what I was looking for when we planned our trip to Hawaii. We are not much for crowds or frills. We like open space, sunrises, coffee, friendly people, lots of flowers. We found that. This property is reasonably priced - not shined till it gleamed as if someone was worrying about you relaxing, but a comfortable cottage where you can cook a decent meal, take a warm shower and sleep on clean sheets. Situated in the thick of trees and plants (we would consider it jungle but I doubt the locals do), a short walk opens up to the most spectacular ocean view on a black lava field. The contrast of colors was remarkable. As for the nights, we found the tree frogs charming but very loud (warning to light sleepers) In short, my heart was absolutely broken to leave and I am quietly plotting a return trip.
