Our family of 4 (including 2 kids) had a fantastic time at the cottage. - It is completely surrounded by thick green vegetation. Even the driveway to the main street is kind of hidden such that you wouldn't see any vehicles or people while staying in the cottage or around in the yard. - The colorful birds in the backyard are a treat to feed and watch. Cheryl has a container of bird seed that we could use for the bird feeders. - There is a 2 min hike over a trial from the back yard that leads to the ocean. My kids enjoyed it very much. - We enjoyed our time at the 'end of the road-Uncle Robert's' event on Wednesday evening. Lots of good food and music. - The property is close to the staging ground for the hike to the Lava flows. I rented a bike and was lucky enough to see real hot lava flowing 10 feet from me :) (Note that you can only rent bikes from the staging area here and not the staging area on the other side of the flow in the Volcanoes national park) - Cheryl is wonderful and is very reachable. She dropped by right away when we needed help with starting the washer onetime.
