We stayed here earlier in June. When we arrived, my husband wanted to take photos of our room. He has never done that before in our travels. The location on the island is great because you are close to a main road, but yet away from lots of traffic. I woke up early one morning and sat on the lanai soaking up the fresh Hawaiian air. It was unique for me to see and hear the sheep as well as the roosters. (The horses were out, but quiet, the one afternoon.) Watching the sun rise up over the ridge and thru the clouds was mesmerizing. I was glad for the tray in the fridge as well as the basket of goodies on the counter. We were able to take the taro rolls with us and eat them when we weren't "home." Also, we left shortly after 6:00 one morning to catch our Na Pail Experience boat ride and it was so nice to have just a little something before leaving (Captain Nate said go minimal) and then enjoy bagels and fruit when we came back from that wonderful excursion. Lorna was extremely nice and gave us a quick tour so we would know where to go for the hot tub, beach gear, guidebooks, wet towel drop off, laundry, etc. When asked for suggestions for supper she gave us some yummy places to check out. We arrived home yesterday from a 15 day trip to four Hawaiian islands. This was my favorite place that we stayed!
