My husband and I arrived here at night after driving an upgrade Hana Road;) Karen still waited and welcome us. When we entered the cottage, we saw colorized lights and warm lamp, listened soothing music around, really felt it is so amazing! The structure is really historied but clean, the room let you feel relax and forget other social worried, the bed is so comfortable and we got a good sleep there. The cat Perry is so clever, just sleep at the step. The position is good, two mns can walk to a beach park, we did snorkeling there, saw 'Nemo' and 'Dory'. It was Sunday, so many families went there to have fun, enjoyed the sunshine and the sea, all kind and warm person. Karen is really let us feel free and gave a good introduction there. She recommend us join a club to see Manta at night, we did and feel unforgettable, the big 'monster' danced in front of our face! The morning we prepared to leave but found our truck's tire leakage, Karen came and called her friend from work to help us, just in case we can't catch up next trip, we got a car fixed lesson, really really be appreciated for that! My husband and I all love the cottage, hope could spend more time there!
The Bali Cottage was great, nestled in the trees and very close to the water, it felt like a real Hawaiian getaway. Karen was great, very welcoming, and gave us some great tips for local activities.
What an amazing place to stay!
We loved the tree house and the access to the beach! Such a cool style house. Love the free flow of the place and outdoor shower is amazing!
The Bali Cottage was fantastic an unique! The location was super, a mere minute's walk to Manini Beach, which has surprisingly good snorkeling. Karen was a great host, very helpful and knowledgeable. Overall, we couldn't have been more pleased!
Karen greeted us outside her home and directed us to the ample off street parking for the cottage. She was very kind and helpful as she walked us through this unique and amazing cottage and property. You won't find another place exactly like this. If you are looking for a plush hotel with air conditioning, this is not for you. If you want to immerse yourself in the beauty of this seaside jungle (with fans and mosquito netting protecting bed), then you simply can not find a more ideal spot. A lot of love went into this gem. Our only regret is that we were not able to stay longer and spend more time in the cottage. The water is only a block away and great restaurants within 10 minutes.
Wir waren 5 Nächte zu Gast bei Karen im Bali Cottage. Der Kontakt im Vorfeld unserer Reise hat sehr gut geklappt. Die Wegbeschreibung passt perfekt und gleich um die Ecke findet sich die Kealakeua Bay.
Das Cottage selbst hat seinen ganz eigenen Charme. Es ist innen sehr liebevoll gemacht und mit den Surfboards an der Decke machen aus "Bali" schnell mal Hawaii. Das Cottage selbst ist zu 3 von 4 Seiten nach außen hin offen bzw. teilweise offen. Wir hatten bei unserem Big Island leider viel Regen, so konnten wir uns aber davon überzeugen, dass das Cottage absolut dicht ist.
Jeder der diese Unterkunft bucht sollte sich allerdings im klaren sein, dass das Mückenspray der beste Freund wird und man sich die Unterkunft mit Geckos, Moskitos und Spinnen teilt. Diese sind aber nun mal normal...die Unterkunft ist ja quasi im Dschungel. Mit dem Schlaf hatten wir von vielen beschrieben wenig Probleme. Unangenehm war nur eine Nacht. Hier hat es stark gewindet und somit quietscht das Dach unangenehm, da es mit einem Baum verbunden ist der durch das Cottage wächst. Einen besonderen Charme hatte das Freiluftbad (Dusche und Toilette). Ein Parkplatz ist direkt vor dem Garteneingang vorhanden.
she made us feel welcome. the outdoor kitchen was fun and full of cute geckos.
