A lot to like. We rented Canal Cottage for eight nights recently. Nice big space with two full baths—showers, no tub. Kitchen has been improved and enlarged from what the website currently shows. No AC in Canal Cottage but lots of screened windows and two overhead fans. Comfortable beds and nice decorative touches.
Landscaped compound with a house and four cottages—the owners live in one of the cottages. Nice balance from the owners of being helpful and yet letting us be. Lots of bird sounds—chickens, of course, and thrush and unknown others. Frogs and frog sounds, but few and not the dreaded coqui as on the Big Island. Visiting duck patrols the hedge each morning. Some occasional and faint traffic sounds from Kuamo’o Road, which is not visible from the Inn. Glimpse of the Wailua River from the kitchen window.
Short drive to shopping and restaurants. Closest smimming beach is Lydgate, which is a very short drive away, with parking, facilities and Lifeguards.
