“Dear Hank and Barbara,
Chris and I want to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Since we live out in the country in Portland it was much like being at home for us. Very private, very comfortable and very clean. It is one of the cleanest homes we have ever stayed in. It was so nice to come home each night to our place away from crowds.
We did not mind the commute to the beaches or wherever we chose to go. We felt in fact that this allowed us to feel less like visitors and more like island residents. It gave us a chance each day to see the same views change as the weather changed. Driving past Ho’okipa Bay each day is a wonderful treat. We especially liked being able to take back roads to get up to the crater as we avoided traffic from the other direction.
I loved the washer and dryer location outdoors. The experience was like being in a well protected tree house. We love having the outdoor come in as well as the indoor out, so your home was perfect with all the patio doors and windows and the protected deck.
For anyone who wants to save money and not go out to eat a bunch, we found the kitchen very easy to work in. We appreciated having a cooler, beach chairs and towels provided. We were able to pack a lunch each day and take it with us.
We cooked in every evening and ate twice for breakfast at Charley’s. We had friends over to celebrate Chris’s birthday. Chris loved the gas grill so much that we made a last minute stop on our last night there to buy steaks to grill out with.
Next time we will stay longer so we can enjoy a few days just hanging around the cottage. It is very peaceful and there are many nice area roads to walk on.
We truly had a tropical experience. Rainbows, cardinals in the tree near the deck, Tradewinds, sunsets and more. “
Mahalo and regards,
Lori and Chris
