It's a private path, well-groomed but little used, that takes you through your private orchard (full of fruit which is yours to harvest) to your private clifftop reading bench. That's what you get at this lovely cottage, and it's the #1 reason to stay here. I can't imagine staying anywhere else on the NE side of the island. Whether you take the path or just enjoy the view from the very secluded deck, you will feel alone with Hawaii.
A personal tip: you must go down to Waipio Beach- it's amazing. It is possible to walk from the cottage- we did!- but perhaps it is better to drive down there. In order to do that, you will absolutely need 4 wheel drive, so if you get a chance, rent a Jeep!
