traveler reviews for this kula cottage rental

Great spot to get away from it all!

Review submitted: March 7, 2014   Date of arrival: February 20, 2014

This is a sweet little cottage for a get away from the hustle and bustle of the world. It is located down a one lane road- so if possible arrive before dark. It was a small challenge to find in the dusk with the evening fog rolling in. The cottage is interesting in the fact that the one double bed is attached to the living space. If you ran not very agile it might be a challenge to climb in the bed but the clime is worth it- the bed is surrounded by windows- you almost feel like you are sleeping outside!!! There is a separate bedroom that you have to go outside to enter. There are bathrooms with showers in both rooms. The kitchen is stocked very nicely with most any tool, pot or pan you might need to cook. The caretakers are present but certainly not intrusive. The drive to Haleakala summit is about a one hour drive so you could plan to see the sunrise or do some hiking there- both great adventures.

Not enough time...

Review submitted: November 28, 2013   Date of arrival: September 26, 2013

Three days was not enough time. To my dismay I found we were busier than planned and didn't have enough time to become a “lanai lizard” and bask in the sun on the wrap around lanai. The views from the back, side or front are all amazing. You can see forever, up Haleakala, across the slopes or down into the valley and to the West Maui Mountains. I could never get tired of the views from the lanai. The master bedroom is spacious with a very comfy bed and a new large bathroom. The master bedroom is attached to the living area but you go outside and a few steps to the door. I found this a big plus for my husband and myself. He had brought his telescope so he could do some late night viewing from the lanai. I could read in the master bedroom and my light didn't disturb him.
The living area of the cottage has a well equipped kitchen, comfy den, bathroom and a wonderful bed in a nook with big windows so you can lie in bed and look at the stars. The cottage is well placed for star gazing; the sky is very dark with no city lights for miles.
The cottage and grounds are very well kept. It’s located on a quiet one lane road that makes for wonderful walks. I look forward to returning and spending a longer time enjoying the tranquil peace.

Spectacular, Quiet and Starry!

Review submitted: July 14, 2013   Date of arrival: July 11, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay here. It is so quiet and beautiful. The views were amazing--Haleakala, Pu'u Kukui, Lana'i, Kaho'olawe, Molokini crater...all from one porch! My spouse rushed out a few times each night to look at the stars!

Our rooms were very clean, new locks and key, and everything was ready on time ( we arrived at 3:15pm). I would recommend the owner to mention in her description (sorry if I missed it somewhere, Janice!) that the bedroom does not have an internal pass through.. this is an unusual feature, and one normally expects a one bedroom to have an internal door. It was no big deal to us, but we probably would have used that room's bed if it had a pass through, and it might be important for families with young children.

If you are expecting hotel-like accommodations, you should stay in a hotel. This is a cottage (and we wanted just that), but people should know that they might have to put up with a few spiderwebs in the loft (our daughter loves spiders), the linens are a bit 'tired' though clean, and not all basic toiletries are supplied (we did miss having shampoo, but appreciated having soap). Thank you for a wonderful stay--I know we will return!
