What Past Guests Are Saying
Old Lyme Connecticut USA
On the third floor of a large house with hardwood floors and an immense lanai, I enjoyed waking in the comfortable bed and feeling that I was in my private jungle. Birds, flowers and a beautiful view. There is a large kitchen clean sheets and towels abundantly and no need to lock the door. This is a very special experience of Hawaii style living. Very artistic and warm. Je crain que la tourist francais aurai preferee un condo moderne car elle ne comprenait pas que les geckos sont partout ainsi que les papillons, mais pas de moustiques. Le television ne march pas car le reception est trop loin...mais il ya plein des livres. The hostess, herself an artist is often away but it is always possible to contact the manager.
un paradis perdu ... dommage !
Mon amie et moi avons loué ce cottage du 29/08/2013 au 06/09/2013.
Les plus :
Le cottage est très bien situé au troisième étage d'une grande maison. La cuisine est bien équipée, le salon est grand avec une belle terrasse, il y a de joli meuble et une belle décoration, la vue est jolie au milieu des arbres.
Les draps et serviettes de toilette étaient propres.
Les moins :
Il n y a pas eu de ménage de fonds réalisé depuis plusieurs mois et donc un amas de poussière, de toiles d'araignées et de fiente d'oiseaux. La plupart des placards et tiroirs sont pleins de « bazar » La crasse s'est installée et la cuisine grouille de cafard la nuit.
Pour rappel, le cout est de 120$ par nuit.
La porte d'entrée ne ferme pas à clef.
La télévision ne permet pas de recevoir ni les chaines du pays, ni le câble, le lecteur DVD ne fonctionne pas très bien poussière toile d'araignée et cafard se sont installé dans l'appareil)
La propriétaire n'étant pas sur place, il est impossible de trouver des solutions sur place.
J'ai envoyé un mail à la propriétaire le 10/09/2013 pour l'informer de la situation avant de mettre un avis peu élogieux sur internet, je ne souhaitais pas lui porter préjudice dans l'hypothèse ou les personnes en charge du ménage n'était pas fiable.
J'attendais en retour a minima des excuses pour le préjudice ou un geste commercial.
J'informe donc les futurs locataires des informations que j'aurais aimé connaitre avant de louer ce cottage.

A magical place
There are no words to describe Sandias wonderful place. What a start of our Big Island vacation. A wonderful view, sunrise and sunsets.
The smell of the flowers and the island breeze. Sandias house is a real jem in a perfect location. And she herself is a very lovely and helpful host. We ail be back soon. Mahalo for everything.

Enchanting Treehouse/ Garden Haven!
I have stayed at this Enchanting Treehouse 8 times in the past 4 years! It is off the beaten path, clean, quiet, safe and a great space to unwind after an amazing dolphin swim right down the road at Kealakekua Bay!It has hardwood floors and a lanai that wraps around the front of the house with an ocean view at a distance. Simply Divine. I wouldnt stay anywhere else and in fact will be returning in april for my 9th visit. Sandia is fantastic and willing to work around your schedule to assist with your journey!
Blessings and I hope you choose this amazing garden haven!
Convenient and comforting
I stayed here a few days and I loved every minute of it. The place is very welcoming, charming with all the plants and trees, and the beautiful view from the lanai.
I also liked the fact that it is located so close to my favorite snorkeling spot. Clean, peaceful, and affordable. I'll be back!
this place is really like a treehouse. you can watch the sunset from the super private lanai. you cannot see any other humans around. the trees, flowers, and birds are absolutely amazing. It is like being in a jungle hideaway. Windows in the main bedroom completely open up so it feels like you are sleeping outside. There are no bugs at all. You can feel the breezes from the ocean.
Kitchen is fully equipped. The lanai (porch/deck) is huge w/table, 4 chairs, and two porch swings. Sandia, the owner, is very sweet and helpful. Directed us to all the best places for snorkeling, swimming, and to a fabulous local fish restaurant.
On beautiful road descending towards kealakekua bay, where there is amazing snorkeling. Don't forget to stop at Kalama Cafe (near bottom of hill) for the best burgers and sandwiches (particularly the ahi nori wrap). This part of the island is super mellow and friendly. Very few tourists.
I highly recommend this cottage rental for a mellow, peaceful, super private stay on the west coast of the big island. It is perfect for a couple or couple with 1 or 2 kids.

Enchanting tropical home
Wonderful, spacious, quiet artistic space amongst lush, tropical surroundings that all reminded me of Bali. Romantic atmosphere, warm and tastefully furnished with lots of artwork. I felt very much at home here.
Spiritual, spacious and great ocean views!!
We stayed in Mapulani for 5 days in January 2012 and it was more than a perfect Hawaii experience for us. The place belongs to an artist and every corner of the house expresses her aesthetic sense! The house has two rooms each with a bed and a fully equipped kitchen. There is a big lanai adjoining both the rooms. Our cozy bedroom was surrounded by glass on all three sides and we could actually see the sunrise lying on our bed every morning. The outer room is so spacious that it could easily be a good place for kids to play around. It also has a very good collection of books and cds which we utilized to the fullest during our stay. The house is literally a hidden gem surrounded by tall trees which attract so many different varieties of birds. Though we woke up the first morning by the call of a local rooster but from the next day onwards it had become a part of our morning rituals. Every time of the day was great in this house but the morning was the best as we enjoyed our hot cup of coffees sitting in the lanai and enjoying the magnificent view of the ocean. If we go back to Big Island, we won't think twice to stay here again.
A sweet Haven
We recently stayed here and loved our stay! It was private and had a wonderful ocean view to wake up to! Our experience was enhanced here at this homey comfortable location-close to Kealakekua Bay and Captain Cook town! I recommend it ! This is a good deal!
