Our Hosts made sure we had everything we needed for our honeymoon stay, even though they wouldn't be there (holidays on the Mainland). This was fine because their neighbors were there if we needed anything (thanks Dhen & Koz!). The driveway was a very steep climb that if we hadn't been in a Jeep may have been a tough drive. The neighbor's dogs & cats came to visit us everyday and were very friendly, as well as a wild pig and a chicken or two. We love animals so this was a plus for us. The price was also extremely reasonable for what they provided and the location. The photos are quite accurate, but they don't show the outdoor bathroom. While well appointed and right outside the front door, it was not ideal to have to go outside anytime you needed to visit the facilities. But its very nice all the same.
Unfortunately here are the 2 reasons we probably wouldn't stay here again:
1) Someone (I assume a neighbor) who used the small art studio next to the cottage at about 7am every morning in a very noisy fashion. We understood we were in a small neighborhood, but not everyone gets up at that early hour. We never did find who it was so that we could ask them if they could be a bit more quiet. Although we know hotel would've have been noisier (and MUCH more expensive), so this wasn't nearly as disappointing as...
2) The lovely tree off the deck that drops baseball sized pods very loudly onto the metal cottage roof at all hours of the day & night. Sometimes if the wind really kicked up it dropped so many pods that it woke us up, scaring the hell out of us. It may be that Winter is when this tree looses its pods, but it ensured that we got no rest at all, which we so wanted.
All in all it was really lovely, and our Hosts thought of everything we could need. Mahalo!
