After much reviews of different hotels, condos, etc. to stay, we chose the bali bungalow at aloha cottages to get married and honeymoon. The place was beautiful. Although it is a drive from there to anywhere, its so worth it. I loved the privacy we had and waking up each morning to the birds and the light misty rain was nice for me. We got married on the propery (which was perfect) everything was so lush and the smell of eucolyptus was always in the air. We weren't far from a beautiful beach (baldwin) and it was never overly crowded. We did however, not find many good places to eat in Makawao, only the steak house I would recommend. We drove to Paia to eat, they had the best food in our opinion. After staying here, I felt sorry for the people who stayed in crowded hotels. This place was heaven for us and we'll be back for honeymoons....My only complaint about the place is, if you are staying for a week or longer, it would be nice to have access to the washer and dryer that is there.
