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

  • 5 of 5

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!

So hard to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about our wondrous two days in this oasis. Peaceful and invigorating in the same breath -- it sometimes felt like we had the island to ourselves. From the view to the fresh eggs and veggies to the oh-so-comfy bed, this rental is perfection. And Terry is so special. We are still on Maui but wishing we could return to Entabeni Cottage.

Enjoy Hana

  • 5 of 5

This is the only way to really enjoy Hana. You are spending the night in a jungle, but with all the luxury accommodations of home. We only wish we had stayed longer.

Self-catering paradise

  • 5 of 5

Gracious hosts, endless view, beautiful grounds, a complete home-away-from-home. We enjoyed self-catering our meals with fresh goods picked up along the Hana Highway. Being this close to Hana gave us an early morning jump on the Pipiwai trail - we got on the trail before most other hikers and tour groups. Would stay again, but longer next time.

Owner's Response: These guests were settled and already preparing their evening meal before I realized they had arrived. It makes one feel so pleased to see guests treating the cottage as their own comfortable space. We welcome your return! Michael & Terry
