“Peaceful, serene, luxurious...great climate!”
Reviewed January 24, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

My 9 year old daughter and I stayed here at the beginning of the month and absolutely fell in love.

The space was gorgeous: upscale, super clean, very quiet (important to me, as I have sleep issues). The kitchen and bathroom were stocked with everything we need, and Kristin, the owner, was available to us at all times when we had questions.

The big bath tub on the spacious balcony with beautiful views was AMAZING. My daughter and I were in it every morning and evening, whether we needed a bath or not!

The bed was really comfortable (again, important to me, due to sleep and back issues!) and the bedding was excellent.

We took day trips down to the adorable town of Makawao, to Paia, and over to Kihei and Wailea. It was great to be in the heat of the beach areas, but what I really loved about the location of this rental is that it's partway up a mountain, so the climate is cooler and perfect. I'm not a big heat person, unless I'm in the ocean or a pool, so it was so nice to come home after a hot, sweaty day at the beach, shower, and be able to have dinner on the balcony in the cool breeze, listening to the birds and the trees in the wind.

Again, due to my sleep issues, I have a really hard time sleeping in the heat, and it got chilly enough at night here that I was perfectly comfortable in my pj's and the comforter on the bed.

The Aloha Cottage was a great place for my daughter and I to just hang out and relax, take walks (I recommend the Pine Forest, just a few minutes up the hill), take baths, and lay in the sun. It was also a great base for us to explore farther reaches of the island, away from the tourist crowds, noise, and traffic.

A perfect spot for a couple who appreciate quiet, privacy, understated elegance and comfort. Can't wait to go back next year!

Aloha,
The cottage is furnished with 100% Italian cotton linens by Calvin Klein. In addition to the down comforter, we have extra blankets available in the closet for any chilly nights. We are always available for any issues our guests may have and are happy to respond as soon as you let us know of your needs.
We take great pride in the cleanliness of our cottage. We are in the tropics, so keeping the cottage clean and fresh is of utmost importance and requires diligent care. We often have guests wishing they could take our cleaning staff home with them, and we consistently receive exceptional ratings on the cleanliness of our cottage.
As always, we strive to make each guest stay an exceptional one. While we respect the privacy of our guests, we are only a phone call away and always available to take care of any needs or concerns you may have.
