The Cottage was amazing!!! From the moment we drove up the road from Makawao, to pulling in the driveway, to having our breathe taken away by the view, it was all exactly what we wanted. We were provided with plenty of instructions on how to use the amenities and left to ourselves shortly after arriving. The gardens were fantastic, the pool and hot tub were fantastic, the views were fantastic, the people were fantastic! I really can't find enough good things to say about our stay beyond the fact that we're already planning our next trip back to Maui and will be staying here again (fingers crossed). :) The only negative was we didn't stay longer.
Lovely place filled with natural aromas. Clean and very well maintained cottage gave us perfect getaway - do not miss the sunset at the halfway of haleakala. Will definitely stay again. Thanks tom and doreen!
Doreena was a fantastic host. My wife and I loved the cottage. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Aromatherapy Foundation! The romantic cottage was very comfortable with fantastic views. The grounds were beautiful and everyone was very friendly. We really liked the location away from the tourist crowds but close enough to Makawao and Paia for convenience.
It was absolutely fantastic. Nice view with great garden, cozy room with clean bedding, fully built in kitchen, etc. The host was also very kind- Couldn't be better house. Thank you!
Beautiful, secluded upcountry spot. Great views from everywhere. Lovely garden. Really sweet. Well equipped kitchen / outside grille.
Small hitch with the arrival arrangements, but it all worked out.
Gotta say that it's hard to understand the need for a $150 cleaning fee.
It was a pleasure hosting both you and Liz at the foundation! Thank you for the lovely review above!
Apologizes for any confusion during your arrival, we sure are glad you made it safely and soundly!
We have a high sanitary standard on all our out-cleans here at AFM with a high-end clean team to boot! We have this standard to ensure every guest is greeted with a clean, sanitary and beautiful unit! We hope you enjoyed the through clean prior to your arrival as well!
