“Delightful and uniquely Hawaiian experience”
Reviewed January 12, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

This unique property is the guest cottage on a large, century old Hawaiian estate. The property is over a century old, but has been attractively updated. On either side of the ohana are two large bedrooms, each with a generously sized bathroom with walk-in closets. In between is a living/dining room and well-equipped kitchen. Guests have use of a private sparking pool next to the guest house, which would have been wonderful in warmer weather. The front porch runs the length of the ohana, and is a delightful place to spend quiet time, reading any of the many books and magazines that the owner has provided.

There are many positive aspects of this property. It is spacious, incredibly private (you won't mind that the curtains don't fully cover the windows), and has absolutely no noise from the road or from neighbors (however, the coqui frogs are remarkably noisy in the evening; more annoying, the roosters start to crow at 3 AM). The kitchen is equipped with an unusually large set of good quality pots and pans, many dishes and glassware, and even a cocktail shaker. Wi-Fi was fast and reliable. The owner is delightful and attentive; she even brought us a bowl of freshly collected eggs one evening.

Negatives are few. One of the beds was annoyingly squeaky with any movement, and the water pressure in one shower was marginal. One window couldn't be closed, and several couldn't be latched. The living room comfortably seats only three. Although there were spices on the counter and sauces in the refrigerator, there was no salt, pepper or cooking oil provided. Oddly, although the ohana was stocked with many unexpected supplies, there were no tissues. The worst problem: we booked through VRBO, which messed up our reservation; please use an alternate booking agency!

I'd clearly recommend this property. With the widely separated bedrooms, each with en suite bathrooms, it is particularly suitable for two couples traveling together.
