Our Personal Island Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a picture perfect stay on the farm! What an epic slice of Earth, and the greatest hosts we could ask for. Be sure to pick up some groceries at Mana before you head up to Hana, you'll want to make some meals to enjoy on your private deck :) Can't wait for our next stay in paradise..

Your own personal garden of eden

  • 5 of 5

Simply amazing! My husband and I were fortunate to stay at this beautiful cottage for three nights as part of our honeymoon adventure in the beautiful island of Maui. We love the outdoors and were excited to have time to explore all the treasures on the road to Hana and this was a perfect place to stay. The owner, Terry was beyond lovely and greeted us as soon as we arrived and gave us the grand tour. The cottage is a beautiful oasis tucked in the exotic gardens of the 6 acre estate. The back wall of the cottage is all glass allowing you to enjoy the beautiful view of the gardens and ocean as a backdrop. We found the cottage to be very clean, with plenty of fresh linens and even cotton robes! You feel like you are staying at a high end resort spa! Staying on the road to Hana enabled us to have an early jump start on exploring this part of the island, which was a treat. We had full days of hiking, swimming, and exploring, then we could enjoy the most relaxing evenings at the cottage watching the sky change with sunset and listening to the sounds of nature in pure relaxation. I think the nights sleeping at the cottage were the best nights sleep of my life. We are so thankful for the Kristiansen's for sharing their beautiful piece of paradise with us. Memories to last a lifetime.

Good place to get away and relax

  • 4 of 5

We loved the winding drive to the cottage, the charming interior, and the view from the lanai. We were only there one night but truly appreciated Terry's generosity with her garden vegetables, herbs, and fresh eggs.

Great spot to stay while visiting the North Coast of Maui and Hana

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location with very comfortable accommodations and friendly owners. The kitchen, travel info, and washer/dryer were great. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck, especially the ocean view and watching stars and sunrise!

Enchanted

We thoroughly enjoyed our too brief stay at Terry and Michael's delightful cottage. The Kristiansen's were gracious and attentive hosts. We are so glad they share their little slice of paradise!
