Great old house with modern amenities. Small inn. Windows everywhere throughout the house, as well as ceiling fans. Unit air conditioners through out. Well stocked. Little extras like specially folded linen and paper products, as well as flowers. Great support. Tucked away from a major thoroughfare, next to a park. Easy to traverse to other parts of the island. Close to airport. Back of property on a canal that connects with the Wailua river Bikes, kayaks, and beach stuff free for guest use. Chickens, birds and geckos everywhere. Loved this place. Would stay again.

Beautiful view. Cottage was very clean and they added special touches to welcome you . Loved having access to beach chairs, towels , boogie boards etc. Having kayaks there to access the beautiful river was the highlight. Close to a very quiet relaxed beach and to town. Relaxed and private property.
