“Perfect Aloha Spirit”
Reviewed 22 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was our 4th time to Entabeni Cottage, and it just gets better every time we go there. We love relaxing on the porch and watching the ocean below us. The tropical garden is lovely for walking, with small signs identifying the types of plants. Friendly dogs and cats are fun to make friends with. The owners, Terry and Michael, have thought of everything to make their guests' stay comfortable and convenient. We loved browsing through the many movies available for watching in the tropical evenings. The wood stove provides cozy warmth on cool evenings. We highly recommend this lovely cottage.

Michael and I love making the cottage everything that our guests could ask for. When our guests return it makes all that we provide worth while.
Mahalo for your kind words.

“Perfect view”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The cottage was great and very peaceful. You couldn't ask for a better view of the ocean and foliage. It was located in a great spot if you are taking two days for the road to Hana.

We hope you'll manage two days on your return to Maui. It will be wonderful to have you back at the cottage. Mahalo for choosing to stay at the farm.

“A comfortable, quiet, well appointed place to stay near Hana”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

people found this review helpful

I spent 4 nights in the Entabeni Cottage. Michael and Terry are very nice people and have a wonderful cottage. The property is big enough and situated in such a way that you have very good privacy. In fact unless I walked over to talk or they were dropping off my daily allotment of two fresh eggs or fresh produce from the garden, I didn't really see them. I saw one of their resident cats far more often. He was a real friendly cat.

The location is about 5 miles outside of Hana proper, so that makes it a very good base of operations to visit the Hana side of the island. Keep in mind that even more so that other parts of Maui, it takes a while to get places because of the narrow winding roads.

I was travelling solo, so I didn't appreciate the place as much as most folks probably would. I imagine it would be an even better place for couples or a small family.

Samuel, you were a wonderful vacationer. We're so glad you took the opportunity to explore East Maui, hike the hikes, and enjoy the social opportunities that presented themselves. You left the cottage spotless and that we both appreciate so much. We treat the cottage as we would our own home and when our guests do the same we find it very rewarding.

“The Tropical Paradise we were looking for......”

Our host and owners were very welcoming. The property was perfect, Tropical, secluded, and offered fantastic views. The "cabin" was Excellent. Clean, roomy and comfortable. We loved it. There was one shortfall I should mention, although the kitchen was quite nice, kitchen utensils and pot and pans were in need of replacing...Sorry.... I'll give it 4 1/2 Stars, 5 being The BEST.

Aloha Guests,
Thank you for the heads' up on those utensils. I agree! New utensils are on the way. I'm sticking with the three French white porcelain pots with glass lids but will review the pans more closely. Did those fresh eggs stick to the stainless ones currently there? We always appreciate knowing where we fall short on guest expectations.
Mahalo,
Terry & Michael

“Wonderful relaxing getaway”

We wanted to explore the Han area and what better way than staying locally. This solar powered cottage retreat is tucked away in a tropical flower/forest locale. It was very comfortable and had everything we could ask for. We received fresh eggs two mornings while there. The eggs were excellent. This was ideally located to explore the Hana area from. Remember to bring food for breakfasts and dinner as most of the food places are only open till mid afternoon. If we come back to Hana, we will look into this again. Thanks!

“Magical and Tranquil”
Reviewed 4 March 2015 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

We heard about Entabeni Cottage from an old friend who is a friend of the owners, Terry and Michael Kristiansen. We booked the cottage for a 4-night stay. The property consists of 6 acres, on the mountain side of the Road to Hana (8 miles north of town). We were greeted by three friendly but not overly friendly dogs and two cats. A flock of guinea fowl squawked excitedly when we got out of the car. It was a welcoming group.
The botanical gardens, now open to the public, are lush, with 30 species of palms, bamboo, and many varieties of tropical ornamental plants, shrubs, and trees.
The cottage is charmingly furnished with a comfortable king-sized bed, a large dining table, two easy chairs, an alcove for writing and reading, a lanai with a view of the ocean, high quality linens and an ample supply of towels, and a well-equipped kitchen. Terry and Michael also provide beach chairs and snorkel gear. We were happy to have a kitchen in which to cook as dining opportunities are limited in Hana, as are food supplies. Also you probably wouldn’t want to navigate an unfamiliar, twisty 8-mile road back to the cottage in the dark after dinner.
Terry suggested that we stop in Kahului and stock up on food. Another useful suggestion was Mana Foods on Baldwin Avenue in Paia. It’s a treasure of a store, despite its dilapidated appearance, like something out of the 60’s, with an amazing assortment of high quality natural food products and good quality produce. We also very much liked the barbequed ribs at Braddah Hutts BBQ in Hana just past Hasegawa’s General Store.
Terry provided us with fresh eggs from her flock of chickens (you will never eat eggs from hens raised in battery cages again), as well as some fresh vegetables from her spacious greenhouse.
We were concerned about making our 11:00 a.m. flight, but the trip to the airport took just about 2 hours, including returning our rental car.
This is a very special place. The whole experience was otherworldly, and we are trying to hang on to the tranquility and slower pace we experienced during our stay at Entabeni Cottage. We recommend a minimum of a three-night stay, as it takes a while for the magic to do its work.

“Charming, secluded cottage in a 6-acre tropical garden”
Reviewed 25 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I have stayed at Entabeni Cottage many times and am counting the days until I can return once again. Hosts, Terry & Michael, have created a tropical paradise! Situated on a hillside overlooking deep blue Pacific waters, surrounded by lush, landscaped gardens, and bathed by the northeast trade winds, the cottage provides a peaceful respite, a perfect vacation spot for those who want to avoid more touristy locations. The cottage itself could not be more cozy and comfortable, and guests are treated to fresh eggs, garden vegetables, and tropical fruits.
