Great, relaxing stay in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Pouring rain when we arrived - but was a great place to sit and sip lavender tea and eat delicious banana bread. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings. Lori was terrific! If you really want to practice aloha, this is your place.

A real Hawaiian Dream!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Dream Temple and hanging out by the pool is just what I was hoping for! Truly relaxing! Lori does a great job of making you feel welcome and quickly taking care of any needs that may come up. A little off the beaten path but worth it!

A Little Slice of Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and our 2 teenage daughters, stayed here for the first 3 nights of our 2 week Maui vacation. From the moment we pulled in the driveway, we knew we would never forget our time here.

Some of the things we loved; the expression on our girls' faces when we pulled in the driveway, the lovely basket of fresh fruit, banana bread, chocolates and local goodies on the kitchen table when we arrived, waking the girls before dawn to join us in the jacuzzi on the deck to watch the sunrise, the beautiful plants, flowers and trees that cover the property, sitting in the chair by the window reading my book listening to the resident gecko chirping to me (a sign of good luck, I'm told!), taking the short walk down the dirt path for an afternoon dip in the sparkling pool, the feeling of complete privacy-as if we were completely alone in paradise-even though there are neighbors and the owner's property nearby, enjoying a soothing hot shower in the large jacuzzi sized tub, watching the girls fall asleep beneath soft, cool sheets under a beautiful, sheer canopy that hung over their bed, the wonderful breezes that blew through the screened windows and doors, falling asleep to the sound of the rain on the roof and the gentle breeze blowing through the trees.

Some of the things we hated; ..... leaving.

Thank you Jessica for sharing your home with us. We have so many memories and moments that we will remember for a lifetime.

Hawaiian Dream Temple Is a Dream Come True

  • 5 of 5

Great location: a short drive to the beach, great restaurants nearby (appreciated all the recommendations in the HomeAway app as well as in the cottage), close to the airport and popular destinations like Haleakala and Hana. Property has wonderful privacy and space--very quiet and relaxing; felt like a local. Great for families. Gorgeous grounds: lots of flowers, beautiful gardens and trees, private entrance, access to swimming pool at main house. Wraparound deck with hot tub. The cottage is beautiful and comfortably appointed. Wonderful amenities like fully stocked kitchen, modern bathroom, WiFi, laundry room and beach gear. The interior was spotless and very comfortable. Very responsive caretakers when we had a question or request. Would stay here again, no question.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a most wonderful time!

We were welcomed by a beautiful filled basket of fruits and local delicacies.

The hot tub and pool was an added bonus. Slept like a baby under the tree canopies.

Highly recommend.

Centrally located to all Maui attractions.
