We stayed in the 'Artists Cottage' which has two bedrooms. Very nicely laid out. Everything you need including great concierge service from Garret. Pluses include great location, great breakfast, free wifi and reasonable 'cleaning fee' (some are out of control). Negatives are very little lighting at night in garage area to access the steps (one flight up). Not enough banana... More

Aloha and mahalo for taking time to write such a kind review. The Artist's House is a great place for two couples or for singles wishing their own bedroom. Glad you found it comfortable. We are just a three minute drive to the park entrance, you cannot get much closer. Makes it convenient for the evening viewing of the Halema'uma'u... More

We spent two nights here in the Ohelo Berry Cottage, the smallest of the four cottages. It's a studio with frig and microwave, and was plenty of space for two people who don't cook on vacation!
