  • Perfect honeymoon cottage!

    "Everything was amazing! I must admit it was so wonderful I may have shed a tear when going home..;)...we hope we can come back again soon! The remote location was private and quiet with every amenity needed. The only suggestion we can think of may be a better set of knives. Although there was a sharpener, the metal is at the stage where it does not sharpen very well. Having a plastic cutting board may also help with this, & is also a hygienic style. However, this seems like such an insignificant thing compared to every detail that makes the cottage so special! We very much enjoyed the care and gardening of the grounds, and all the special amenities for us. The CD to Hana was great, the movies & music CD's surprisingly were some of our favorites, & a few of our wedding songs! When we arrived there were little details like salt and pepper, coffee & shampoo/conditioner/lovely bath salts. The books with instructions answered any question we may have had. The cleaning was also wonderful. We couldn't have dreamed of a better place to celebrate our honeymoon! Thank you so much for everything, & we sincerely look forward to doing business with you in the future!"

  • What a place to start our honeymoon!

    "We flew in from the mainland and the Octagon Studio was our first stop. What a way to begin our honeymoon...perfect! Upcountry Maui is very beautiful, lush and full of flowers!! It is cooler at night because of the elevation and as we hit a unusually cool spell we could not open the doors and windows and enjoy the open flow. Can imagine that must be amazing. We enjoyed the hottub instead and it was so relaxing! It is a small cottage but has everything you need and is as beautiful as in the pictures. VERY private!! Even if the main unit is occupied you will not feel crowded and you are tucked in your own little private corner. It is situated perfectly if you would like to explore Upcountry, Haleakala and the road to Hana. We had a enjoyed a perfect massage and the hosts are genuinely nice and caring but give you ample space and privacy. We had dinner at the Steakhouse in Makawao, very good! Thank you for making our start so beautiful and perfect!"

  • Loved the Cottage!

    "We stayed for a week at the Romantic Cottage and it was just that. The views were breathtaking and ever changing throughout the day and eve especially with the full moon in the mix. It was like watching a slow motion movie. The cottage had everything we could want and more. It was great to retreat back to the mountain after a day away, knowing that were had the peace and quietude that we wanted without the masses of the more frequented places on the island. Loved the garden and the aromas that were in the air and the use of the diffuser with the oils was quite lovely. We experimented every day with 1 or more oils and are using the hydra sol from the distillery demo we now have on a daily basis. Tom, Doreena and the rest of the staff were great. Loved our massages too. Thank you for creating this beautiful space for us to experience."
