A Lovely Getaway
My husband and I, who were visiting on our honeymoon, had a lovely time staying at this cottage. After spending several days in the south of the island in a condo, it was nice to find a quiet location to enjoy, just the two of us.
I loved the privacy of the place and the grounds are lush and beautiful. In fact, the whole area is gorgeous and tucked away in a beautiful valley. We walked down to the beach several times and enjoyed all the beautiful flowers and birds along the way. The location wasn't right near anything but it wasn't too far of a drive into Kilauea, Princeville, or Hanalei, which were some of the areas we visited.
The place itself is romantic, low-key, and enjoyable. The owner has decorated the inside with paintings and there's dark wood floors and Balinese doors and furniture. We had everything we needed in terms of kitchenware and put the ipod player, the grill, and the lanai to good use. The owner came by to greet us when we arrived and even had several vases of gorgeous local flowers awaiting us. We hung our hammock between the palms out in the yard and there was a big clearing to watch the stars. Bring your earplugs for the chickens, as they live there, too, but that's the case just about everywhere.
This definitely earns its name of Shangrila. We hope to return one day.
