  • A Classic Cottage Charmer

    "Plumeria cottage suited our small family perfectly for a nine day stay. The deep eaves protecting the wraparound porch and the screened lanai create very pleasant and comfortable places to relax in. They are also very functional, protecting our hiking, beach, and snorkeling gear from the frequent rains, as our visit coincided with the weather created by Tropical Storm Darby. The house definitely made our stay extremely pleasant, even on some rainy days. Thank you Plumeria! The furnishings and condition of the house are pretty much exactly as pictured. The walls and floors are made of repurposed redwood wine storage vats..smooth, vintage, and beautiful. There are nice little touches throughout the house, giving it's own unique personality. Keep in mind that this house is older home in a tropical climate, well-maintained but with some infrastructure, furnishings and linens functional but well-used. The house was well-stocked when we arrived. We appreciated the warm and attentive hosts who came by to welcome us and bring a gift of fresh fruit, and show us how to use the fruit picker to get our own papayas off the tree in the yard. They were very responsive to a minor fix of an aging smoke detector starting to chirp. Some maintenance attention to the screens around the screened lanai will be needed within a year or so to keep the integrity of this essential bug-barrier high. We had no issues with mosquitos in the house, but we took care to keep the unscreened French doors closed. The house cools off well with the ceiling fans and the doors and windows with screens open. During low-mosquito periods of the day, the hammock and chairs on the wraparound porch are great places to enjoy the view of the palm tree-lined stream that flows next to house. We appreciated the use of the two double kayaks under the house. The house is a short portage to the double-reef protected Anini bay, a magical place to explore. Two strong adults can walk the kayaks to the beach access alleys, but it would be a big help if there was a set of wheels/wheelbarrow to make this more accessible to all without the need to hoist them up onto a car. A wish for our next visit here someday!"

  • Best equipped home we've ever stayed in

    "What a terrific home! Impeccably clean. Terrific book selection. Very well equipped kitchen! Most rentals clean out every item of food and shaker of salt in between rentals,, but this place had everything you could want to make meals (spices, vinegar, aluminum foil. I would imagine the selection is hit or miss. We were so pleased with what was there, we bought some larger items than usual to pay it forward). There were 2 boogie boards, snorkel gear, sand toys, etc..It's a short walk from the house to the ocean - you can't quite hear it. The Roosters wake you up early, and you can hear the cars occasionally zipping down Anini Road. I get warm easily, but I didn't miss having AC. Just open the windows/doors (all screened), turn the fans on, an date house gets very comfortable. Highly recommended!"

  • Tranquil paradise !

    "The house is really well set up for a large family and right at the end of Anini beach, with little traffic . Anini beach seemed to be the only wave free (fun snorkelling here) and totally child friendly beach we found in the area. Shallow too. We explored many of the other beaches around. All are amazing, relaxed and offer something different - get an SUV and explore ! No a/c, a noisy morning rooster and a few mosquitos are the only complaints. Nothing enough to cast a shadow over this paradise. Enjoy !"

  • Location location location

    "Wow! This was the best vacation spot ever! I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a quiet relaxing place with a stunning view of the ocean and only steps from a sparsely populated beach with good swimming and snorkeling. It is a great place to hang out- inside the house, on the beach and in the yard with the ocean view. I have stayed at Anini beach many times but this was the first time in this house and it was the best! There were good beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and snorkels. Its simple and beautiful. Definitely important to know that the bedrooms are separated by windows that support the ventilation so its find for a couple and their children or two single friends. If you are wanting to be around civilization and restaurants and activities, this is probably not the place for you but then maybe another island would be a better choice. I can't wait to go back!!!"
