As Good as The Photo
A private cottage with gorgeous blossoms surrounding it and a view to the ocean as well as the mountains, all enjoyable from the deck while we sit outside in the shade or sun (whatever our preference), the place is as beautiful as the photograph. The interior is also clean, spacious and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. More than that, it also has essentials for packing picnics, like a cooler, ice-packs and storage containers. We made good use of them for our day trips. For us it was a trade - off, staying in a quiet neighborhood and hopping into the car to access amenities, rather than staying in a more central location within walking distance of everything. Amenities are close at hand with a vehicle, just a few minutes drive to beaches, shops, grocers and ocean walks, as well as a great location from which to head out on day trips. Even the Hana Hwy. is manageable within a days framework. For grocers, you've got the pick of regular stops like Safeway, Times and Foodland and for the more health conscious and the vegetarian/vegan, Hawaiian Moon Natural Foods is a great fit. It carries the raw ingredients for home-made muesli, and well as nuts, seeds, beans and grains in bins, making it possible to purchase just what you need for the time you're vacationing. We also had a favorite Farmer's Market, just a little north of Foodland and on the ocean side. Between different vendors its open every day but Sunday. We enjoyed a personal welcome from the owner, as well as a lovely welcoming basket, and the use of the upper/shared deck with a great overview of the ocean which features Maui sunsets. We found the cottage a wonderful relaxing place to stay, and appreciated quiet evenings on our deck after our days spent on the beach or sightseeing.
