The venue was simply amazing, it was exactly as described: a rustic but cozy and very well equipped cottage in a piece of heavenly jungle, populated by frogs, birds and geckos.
Sheri was very caring to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible.
We had a great stay at Sheri's fun, quirky cottage. It's a great location - you're close to town and in a subdivision of sorts, but when you're in the cottage it feels like you're all alone in the middle of the jungle. The flowers, the birds and the frogs are fantastic. The fresh fruit and eggs that Sheri brings over are a lovely touch. It was unusually cold and very wet while we were there and so the place felt a bit damp, but in nicer weather this would be a perfect cottage in the jungle.
Sheri was so welcoming. The house is so unique. The porch is so inviting and the outdoor shower was a hoot. Definitely getting in touch with nature in this house. My favorite part was the avocados growing outside that we could pick and the gorgeous outdoor greenery. I took a walk down her road, turning left at the end of the driveway, and it was one of the prettiest walks I had in Hawaii. Sheri and the neighbors planted so many different kinds flowers to enjoy. I also felt like I was camping in a cabin at Sheri's house. So if you like camping, you will love it!
It is a very nice wood house in the forest. The equipment is all in readies when we arrived. And the assistant of the landlord also brought us some food and fruit which were also very good. My companies and I all enjoyed the time spent there.
This is by far one of the most beautiful places I will ever stay. This cottage was clearly built with love and is an extremely comfortable space to be within. There are almost no words to describe my stay as I couldn't fully conceptualize how great it was! Sheri was extremely helpful and gave us great tips on where to go, and she also left fresh eggs, potatoes, and fruit for us! The outdoor shower is awesome, and basically everything we needed was not only there but also easy to find. I hopefully we be able to stay here again someday, as the cottage but also Pahoa, was my favorite place on the island.
Our family(wife+15years old daughter) really enjoyed staying at this cottage. The location was convenient, close to Pahoa town, good atmosphere, the cottage was really nice designed. The kitchen attracted my wife a lot, it had everything so we could prepare Christmas dinner home cooked. We like to come back next year again...thank you for everything!
Oh my gosh, we cannot say enough wonderful things about Sheri & the cottage!! We stayed for 5 nights (8 nights on the island) and between the outdoor shower & the gorgeous view (basically a 360 view of the canopy), we felt totally immersed in the lush jungle. The house is very easy to get to & there are neighbors but the houses are strategically placed so that you feel totally secluded. The entire cottage is yours and Sheri makes it very clear that she is only a phone call away should you need anything. This was the perfect place for us & exceeded our expectations! If you're looking for a unique & cool "off the beaten path" experience, I highly recommend you stay at Sheri's cottage!
