We stayed in Cannal A cottage, it was very comfortable, with everything you could use for cooking and cleaning. Nice having the cannal behind the cottage wich made easy access to the river with the Kayak to the secret falls. The grounds are well kept. A very nice place to stay we plan to visit again in the near future... More

When we arrived at our cottage, it was more than we hoped for. The grounds, filled with beautiful flowers, delicious fruit and interesting animals... More

We spent 10 nights at Canal Cottage B for our honeymoon. Paul was an excellent host, and gave us tips on activities and places to eat. We enjoyed bumping into him on the property. The grounds were amazing, with very beautiful gardens. We enjoyed sitting on our private lanai with our coffee in the morning, taking in the gorgeous surroundings.... More

My wife and I stayed in the River Cottage, and it was perfect for us. Here's why: 1. The cottage itself: A perfect space for two people; not crowded and no wasted space. Beautiful decor and furniture, and bed was extremely comfortable. We loved its authenticity (old wood counter-tops, etc). I've read people complain about bugs. Well, don't leave food... More

This quaint place is relaxing from the start. The comforts provided rival the big chain/name accommodations on the island. The personal touch we experienced was above and beyond our expectations. Modest yet perfect to the last personal detail. Our Host and his wonderful Folks are Top Notch when it comes to Hospitality. The beach amenities from matts, Boogie boards, snorkel,... More

We stayed at river cottage and Ohana house and both were well stocked and Ohana house is great for families. Paul the owner was very nice and helpful. There are lots of fruit trees on the property and you can pick and eat whatever is ripe.
