We stayed in the Hale Iki, which is the coolest little cottage that Joan from the Country Goose manages. It was exactly what we wanted and loved our time there.
That being said, there were a few cob webs in the corners and there wasn't enough hot water to fill up the giant bath tub. The bedding could also stand to be updated. Breakfast is also included, which is a nice touch, but it is at Joan's house and you do have to drive to get there. It would have been nice to have the option of a breakfast basket or something delivered to the cottage.
We enjoyed talking with Joan and seeing the other side to Country Goose, she is a lovely hostess however I don't think the rest of Country Goose's accommodation is quite our style.
We did love the Hale Iki though, and if you're looking for a rustic, romantic getaway in the rainforest, this is the place!
