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.

Tranquil cottage in a lush tropical garden
Entabeni cottage is a gem! The cottage is well furnished, quiet, and has an amazing view. Owners Terry and Michael are very friendly hosts and even provided us with fresh farm eggs and vegetables for our stay. Highly recommended!
Thank you for your kind words. Safe travels today and we hope to see the three of you back before that little lad is too big.

Cozy cottage on the side of the volcano
Our three days at this ocean view cottage have been the most relaxing days since we arrived in Hawaii. The cottage was extremely comfortable with everything needed including the breakfast eggs. The ocean views during the day and the very quiet nights were the perfect combination for a peaceful vacation. Many thanks to Michael and Terry. We wish Terry a speeedy recovery
What an amazing place! Clean, comfortable bed, great people and kitties. Amazing ocean views! Wish we could have stayed longer!
It was so quiet and beautiful. It was very beautiful
Loved our short stay at your cottage. It’s such a lush garden area that it feels completely different than the other side of the island. We loved it. Well appointed, fresh eggs, walked around the gardens. ❤️
