  • Interesting coffee plantation house


    Hosts were friendly and helpful about suggesting things to do. Very clean with lots of small amenities available such as insect repellent and excellent guide book. Hot water failed once. Very loving cat likes attention so a warning to persons allergic to cats. House wing is quaint but interesting. Higher altitude means nice cool temperatures--no air needed. All together, a good experience.

  • Historic getaway


    I enjoyed the stay, the outdoor shower gives a feeling of a outdoor camping trip. The kitchen area was very well organized and neat. A couple suggestions, a freezer compartment on fridge. Please update barbecue. Complimentary robes for use with outdoor shower. Thanks again Evie, I quite enjoyed coffee and coconut rum.

  • Real Hawaii


    The feel of real Hawaii. I lived on island many years ago in a plantation home and it felt just like home.

    I had an amazing time at this historical property. The pictures are true to form, the hosts were super friendly and accommodating, and have done a fantastic job creating this little cottage. Although a rustic feel, everything is new within the property. I really enjoyed the combination of indoor and outdoor living. Although the shower and toilet are outdoors you still have privacy as they do have doors. I was a single female traveller, there was no one time that I felt unsafe. There were times that I worked from the property, and had no issues with the WIFI or mobile signal. I spent just over a month travelling the islands and having an onsite washer and dryer was a welcoming treat! I loved spending time with Fred the cat, whom was great company at the end of a busy day. I will definitely be returning next year, and I am hoping to stay again if the dates allow.

  • Great authentic feel.


    We enjoyed our stay here. Everything just as pictured. We enjoyed the outdoor shower & kitchen area. Made it feel different than other places and like we were livin local. We based out of here and spent one day in Kailua, one in captain cook area and one day exploring the Kohala coast. Then once we checked out, we went south. Felt like it was a good place to base out of. Evie was so kind she even gave us oranges from her orange tree and an avocado from her tree.
