Let us share our experience during our last vacation on Maui. Olinda is an amazing place, especially if you stay at Doreena’s and Tom’s place! That’s where we chose to stay for 3 weeks this year in early summer (to be exact, from May 27 through June 15, 2009). We stayed at the Octagon, and let us tell you, it’s is a peaceful, magical, silent place where you can forget all the worries of the outside world. The fragrance wafting up from the wild geranium fields is tantalizing. The aroma therapy massage and facial at the spa was one of the best and most relaxing that we ever had. We liked Cujo’s (the watch dog) “attitude”, he seems to understand every word, and we enjoyed his frequent visits. What a wonderful start of the day it is relaxing in the hot tub, and then swimming in the lap pool. During our previous visits to Hawaii we stayed at different places, including luxury hotels, but this beats anything we called home during our vacations. We will remember this place forever, and we will definitely be back for another peaceful and romantic stay.
