This was our first time in a B&B and I was pretty impressed. The place has a lot of character, a nice selection of books to read and art to look at. Cherie was very helpful. Each morning as I was planning what I'd need for the day she'd magically appear and offer a cooler or boogie board or beach mats. The breakfast was very good and as a bonus included a wide assortment of local jams. Makawao is pretty cool also - a few shops & restaurants worth checking out if you have an hour. We stayed in the Jasmine room. The bed was very comfortable. If I had to offer some critcism it would be that there wasn't much space to put our clothes or bath supplies, and you had to practically crawl over the toilet to get into the shower - but I guess this is what comes with converting an old house to a B&B.
Overall it was an interesting alternative to the beach scene - a totally different side of Maui.
