Open your bedside door to the sound of surf rocking and rolling on a black sand beach, night and day. A night which ends watching (from porch) white waves play in the moonlight over a dark and stormy sea. A day which begins with watching (from porch) the sun rise over the ocean... More than enough. Romantic.
John's breakfast baskets redefined bananas and answered my lifelong question: why do people eat papaya?
But first, before breakfast, walk out the door, across the yard and onto the beach to discover the gifts of the sea--one morning it was wild sponges blowing like froth across rounded lava stones, one evening it was sections of white coral tossed into fine black sand, another time it was a perfect purple shell.
One day as I sat inside at the dining table with front door open, a mongoose walked down the sidewalk and peered in at me as though it would come inside for a visit, but then it whisked, weasel-like, down a hole. Adorable!
Location: excellent--short walk into Hana to explore red sand beach, fruit stand, prahnee's Thai food, Cafe Romantica, and the upscale offerings of the Hotel Hana (shopping, food, live music) and Coast Gallery. Plus immersion in a 57% Hawaiian community --baseball, schools, picnics, watching awesome surfing, kids and pets
Room appointments: excellent (carved wood doors, rattan/bamboo ceilings, original art work)
Suggestions: If you plan to cook, email John to find out what equipment is in each suite. We stayed in two --one had a blender, the other did not.
John was there when needed, but otherwise very respectful of our privacy.
