Marianne greeted us when we arrived showed us the house. Informed us about the termite situation. She or anyone else did not bother us through out our 3 day stay, location is close by to any where you would like to go. I was not too much bothered by the presence of Cockroach's or lizards, but a bit surprised. And I would say it was an over all OK(not good not bad) experience.

Maui is a tropical island . Hence, any folks very squeamish about a few mosquito's or ants or other such critters, may want to rethink Hawaii OR stay in a luxury resort hotel or condo. Locals have adapted and our guests will need to be relaxed about the occasional notice. We are on it. This information is listed in our description on our page. Before you decide on where to book you should read the description. We have done our best to be completely transparent about where you will be staying. Gecos are native to Maui and they have a job to eat the bugs so we welcome them, they are completely harmless. Living on the edge of a rain forest on a tropical island comes with the occasional guest bug! It is up to you to create a good or great experience. Most of the time was spent away from the cottage, sleeping and getting up early and trying to cover a whole lot of ground in 3 days is nearly impossible!

Great location! The upcountry is centrally located near lots of small quaint towns. Gary and Marianne are very freindly and welcoming. They gave us some great suggestions on restaurants and things to do. The unit is a converted garage next to the main house. The unit is on the same lot as the main house, that also were hosting Air BNB guests. Parking got a litte tricky when additional guests were staying at the main house. Pay attention to additional taxes generally mentioned in the listing. They will be asked to be paid shortly before arrival. For one night stays it doesn't equate to much, but for our two and half week stay, it wound up costing us over 388 additional dollars. There was some noise from the neighbors on the weekend, as their backyard backs up to the unit. Since there is no AC, keeping the windows open is required, this lets in the fresh cool upcountry night air, but it also lets in any conversations going on in the backyard next door. Overall a good experience

The first sentence ASKS: PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION. This listing is complete and transparent. Nothing is sprung on you without notification first. Upon booking your reservation we ask for your email so we may send you a pay pal form to collect Hawaii State lodging taxes. This is required by the state of Hawaii, it's not something extra that we just throw in. Our guests called Air BnB to get an explanation of the taxes and also asked if they could pay over the phone. On our description and also in our house rules it reads " PLEASE NOTE: Required HI State and transient tax of 13.4 % IS NOT INCLUDED IN PRICE. This cost will be collected at the time of check in. You must read the description, all the information is provided. There are NO surprises! Nothing unexpected or last minute about what is required. Also the cottage is not and has never been a garage. I do not believe you put skylights and sliding glass doors in a garage. The cottage has both of those details. Mahalo

A lovely self-contained cottage with everything you need. The bed was really comfortable, and our daughters slept surprisingly well in the pull out futon and couch. Nice quiet area, close to Paia and a couple of other nice country towns. Loved our road trip to Hana - a must do - and we're glad we used Gary and Marianne's guidebooks for all the info we needed in Maui. Friendly hosts - highly recommended place to stay.

I did not realize on booking this place that I would be given a bill for the state taxes on top of the booking fee. It is written in their description, I guess, but it was not obvious enough for me to see it coming. The bill was 14% of the total cost so not huge but not nothing either. The place is actually in a good location to get out early on the Road to Hana, otherwise you will find it is quite secluded. Pretty much everyone has a rental car when they travel Maui so the seclusion ate up time but didn't really put us out. When it rains at night here this is one of the most peaceful and beautiful places I have ever slept. It's all open and we left the windows open all day and never locked the doors because it just has that safe feel to it. The house was stocked with simple things like coolers and beach chairs and towels which was a great touch. Probably wouldn't stay here again but I am happy that I did it once.

Upon booking our cottage on Maui we send everyone a request for an email address to send a pay pal invoice to collect HAWAII STATE TAXES. Your reservation was for April 16 on March 9 this is the message we sent you. Hi Ryan thanks for booking with us☺ please send us your email so we may collect Hawaii state lodging taxes and we are happy to share all that info once u arrive, in the mean time check out Maui revealed book or app and also download gypsy guide Maui for many personal tours aloha Marianne Mar 9, 2017 The statement is also available for you to see at the top left hand corner of the search with airbnb stating that additional taxes and fees may apply. Then we have it in our description of our property, stating that Hawaii state taxes will be collected. This is not something that we surprise our guests with, nor is it in our control. We must pay the state of Hawaii its taxes. We are trying our best to satisfy the state by paying the taxes that are due. Air BnB is attempting to get the state of Hawaii to allow them to collect and pay these taxes for their hosts. Which I am in support of so that these statements made by guests no longer appear in our reviews. READ THE DESCRIPTION is the first paragraph on the page. We also provided a paper invoice to collect from the guests and I still had to knock on the door in order to receive payment. Some rentals here on Maui are doing things illegally, some states do not require the same controls or laws as the state of Hawaii. We will continue to do what is required of us and that means paying the tax on vacation rentals.

The cottage was excellent, in a quiet part of Makawao. Well furnished with everything a Maui tourist might need. An excellent place to stay.

Stay here if you wanna experience upcountry vibe. Considerably near to Haleakala and Hana. All the beautiful beaches are in vicinity.
