Private retreat in tropical environment
We enjoyed the remote cottage in the tropical environment very much. The cottage is very cosy with huge private garden (hammock between two coconut trees!), private hot tub and outdoor shower -- we loved it although there is an indoor shower as well. The kitchen was very clean and was well equipped with extraordinarily high-quality equipment (great). The covered outdoor stove was nice and kept cooking odors out of the building. On arrival we found all rooms perfectly decorated with fresh flowers, white wine, bread, eggs from their own chickens, etc in the refridgerator, and a fruit basket in the kitchen. The dining table was nicely prepared. Guests are invited to pick bananas which were grown in the garden. The host Sharyn is very friendly and helpful. The cottage lies in a remote area, you have to drive approx. 30 min on the winding Hana highway to reach Pa'ia. The famous dining restaurant Mama's Fish House and the surfer hot spot Ho'opika are about 20 min by car from the cottage. We booked some boat trips from Lahaina which needs a drive of about 75-90 min, depending on the traffick which was high in February. Nevertheless, we liked the privacy far away from the huge hotel complexes at the other coast, as well as the familiar and warm atmosphere.
