                                                              We were looking for a quiet, off the beaten track place to spend the last of our 3 week vacation on the beautiful isle of Maui. When we can across the words "solar powered flower farm" we were intrigued so we booked the place for the last 4 nights. From start to finish, we had a fabulous time enjoying walks through the garden followed by one of the cats, Kit and a gaggle of anxious Guineau Fowl flitting about. The place is completely off-the-grid although one can enjoy all the modern conveniences thanks to solar power and propane gas! We loved the stunning ocean views, comfortable bed, lovely 3 piece bathroom, fully outfitted kitchen, outdoor shower, lush tropical gardens, chicken coop and sound of rain the metal roof in simple harmony with chirping toads out in the garden enjoying a late night rain shower. Michael & Terry are charming, gracious hosts. What's not to like? We highly recommend this lovely place if you are looking for a quiet little corner to chill out for a while.
