About Maile Wang
Aloha! My husband, Micah, and I have a love for The Big Island and we are proud to call it “home.” I manage a small, local coffee shop and Micah works for Anderson Wealth Planning. With a love for people and adventure, we soak up time with our friends and ohana at the beach and, of course, exploring our beautiful island.

Enjoyed our stay here--really felt like we were experiencing Hawaii. Good home base for exploring the north and western parts of the island. Cottage was clean and had everything we needed.
I stayed almost a week in the cottage and would have been happy to move right in :) The place presents exactly like the photos, and was very clean and well stocked. There was a friendly greeting committee of hens, roosters, and a cat that made me smile. The cottage is easy to find and the location is convenient to Kona, beaches, and the airport. After a full day out and about, it’s a peaceful place to come back to.
Pleasant cottage with full kitchen (except dishwasher).
Be sure to read the directions on how to find this cottage. It could be marked better. The entry is narrow and driveway goes downhill and curves. The futon/sofa was not the most comfortable and I couldn’t find a box of tissues anywhere, but otherwise this was a comfortable, quiet hideaway. The separate bedroom is nice if one person is an early riser. We made use of the beach chairs, umbrella, and snorkel equipment.
I would happily stay in this place again. In fact, I would stay here every time I was on the Island if I could. It was in an ideal location. At night, it was quiet and the stars were great. The property was easily accessible, close to town, and had all the necessities.
Beautiful, wonderful place !!!
What a beautiful, charming place !! We stayed there only 4 days and it was way too short. I so much wish we could stay longer ! The house is so charming, extremely clean and has everything you need. It was wonderful to fall asleep and wake up to singing birds, have a breakfast outside. Very relaxing ! I already want to come back ! The service, communication with the host and everything was just excellent ! Thank you !!!
Quiet, comfortable seclusion, yet just minutes away from great beaches or the bustle of Kailua-Kona.
The cottage was clean, well stocked with the basics and nice touches upon arrival. The owner was responsive quickly when we reached out. Read the directions before you attempt the drive up to the cottage, it is hidden. Which lends to the reality, we only actually heard a vehicle once during our stay. Wanna get away, this is the place.
Really enjoyed the solitude of the location. Getting up the hill brings cooler temperatures and the windows almost never had to be closed during our stay. The sounds of nature were like something you would purchase to help a baby sleep through the night.
The beauty of the property with cottage nestled in the back corner is not something a picture can fully capture. Manicured, thoughtful gardening surrounds the cottage with a few chickens occasionally pecking around the plantings. A couple of the mornings a roster would be around, but not every morning and he didn't seem to be an earlier riser kinda bird.
The amenities were all better than listed in the description. Would stay here again without hesitation. Don't miss the owner's local guide selections either, the suggestions were all good.
Thank you for all your kind words. We’re so happy you and your wife enjoyed your stay at our cottage! We hope to be able to host you again in the future.
