Completely Amazing, Magical and Eclectic Vacation Experience!
Wow, where to begin? Eliot's Shangri-La in the Leilani Estates subdivision is almost too good to be true. Every detail has been well thought out, from the second you turn into the driveway with the big Buddha head and the crimson gates to the beautiful landscaping throughout the property, to all the features you have as a guest staying in this Zen-like cottage. I loved the colors, the furniture, and softness and the reverence that I felt staying here. Impeccably clean, the bed and bedroom was extremely comfortable, and big enough to move around in easily, the kitchen was very well appointed with all the necessary tools and appliances. Coffee was provided, although I don't drink it, but Eliot did give me some bananas from his property, which was a plus. The bathroom facilities are a very short walk out the kitchen around the other side of the cottage, which was not a problem at all, and it was raining when I was there, but I did not get wet going out there. I love the bathtub in it's own little separate structure, very peaceful and comfortable. Plenty of nice soft absorbent towels were provided, and you even have your own private parking space, steps away from the cottage. Eliot is a musician and I even got to jam with him for a bit while I was there, very fun indeed! Of course, he was available to answer any questions for me, and even told me how to get to an amazing warm pond about 20 minutes away which was a delight. I loved wandering the grounds, which was encouraged, as long as I was respectful of the few other people staying there. Such gorgeous landscaping, and huge painted urns and statues throughout the property, it felt like I was in a sculpture garden. This is a gem on the Pahoa side of the island, only about 15 minutes to the beginning of the trail that takes you to the active lava flow. Eliot even let me borrow one of his bikes! I searched for a one night rental in that area and I am so glad that I chose this Lush Big Island Paradise!! I would and will recommend this property to everyone I know. Mahalo, Eliot, for a memorable staycation.
