Hidden Gem
My stay: 3 night in late January 2016 I am so glad I stumbled across this cottage on the website. It is a true hidden gem tucked away in the beautiful country side. The owners Richard and Candice are simply wonderful, they are so welcoming and a pleasure to talk too. The cottage is clean, spacious and charming. The grounds are quiet and very peaceful. The nights get a bit cold but there is a small gas fireplace and an electric heater that can keep the interior very comfortable. There was a full sized refrigerator and a functional kitchen with cookware and cutlery (and a wine opener), I think there was some basic seasoning too. Although I didn't cook anything it looks like you could cook some nice meals. There was a TV but i never turned it on, the view of the evening sky was much nicer. There is a nice porch right outside the bedroom that is perfect for stargazing while sipping on some wine or enjoying the morning sky. The wifi was a little slow but fast enough to listen to Pandora after a little buffering. The property is located about 10 min up the road after turning off of Mamalahoa hwy, but I drive a little slow. (Had nothing to do with the cottage but my AT&T reception was very poor, even down in Honokaa town) The road does get very dark at night so it is recommended to arrive before it gets dark on the first night. But the directions from Candice was very good. Overall, I had a peaceful and wonderful stay. I would very much recommend this cottage and I would not hesitate to stay here again if I was in the area.
