    "This was my third visit to Skandia cottage, I like it so much. For me it provides the perfect environment from which to explore the Island, take photographs and experience the aloha of the real Hawaii. The cottage always feels fresh and inviting and provides everything I could possibly wish for during my stay. Thank you for making each stay so very special."

  • A peaceful, magical paradise

    "My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights - a return visit from last year. Paula greeted us with a bottle of champagne and a bowl of tropical fruit from the garden; pineapple, avocado, star fruit, lilikoi, grapefruit, tangerines and guava. Paula and Dan are wonderful hosts - they were there if we needed them, yet gave us the privacy to feel like we were the only ones there. This property is spectacular! One night, we soaked in the tub on the deck while watching the milky way and shooting stars overhead, and a lightning storm over Maui. All we could hear were crickets and coqui frogs. Last year we stayed in the Studio, this year we stayed in the Cottage. Both are very comfortable with gorgeous views. The property is close enough to Honoka'a for shopping and dinner (check out Il Mondo's), and Waipi'o valley for a hike, but remote enough to relax. We will definitely be going back because it feels like home."

  • A beautiful stay.

    "We wanted to go explore the Norhtern side of the big island and ran into this little place in our search. We were so happy to have had the opportunity to stay at the Blue Lotus. Breakfast was a perfect start to the day beautiful yard, ponds, fountains etc. the room was very comfortable and good size. The hospitality of the owners was the best one could expect. We will be back."

  • Beautiful Vacation Home

    "We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house. The view was fantastic, and the house is very comfortable. The area is quiet, so we enjoyed relaxing all morning, and venturing out in the afternoon. This is the wet side of the island in February, so we got the expected mix of sunshine and rain. In our case, we tended to get sunshine in the morning most days, and then it often clouded up and rained in the afternoon. We swam in the pool most days. It is a bit cold getting in, but not too bad. We did not see any whales from the house the week we were there, but we saw a lot on the other side of the island, west of Waimea. The beds were very comfortable, not too firm or soft. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean. The pool was clean. The mermaid fountain was working fine. The driveway was just a bit tricky for my wife. She tended to spin the tires just a bit going up with our 2wd car. I had no problem. The large sliding glass door is getting a bit sticky and difficult to open, you need to be very careful as it takes a bit of force, and I was worried it might break easily. My family did miss having a TV in the common area for occasional use. Overall, this was one of our more enjoyable vacations ever. I often caught myself just looking around and smiling. If I get the chance, I will rent here again."
