Tutu's Country Cottage in Hanalei
Tutu's (grandma's in Hawaiian) is a charming, cozy two bedroom, one-bath house in Hanalei, just 200 yards from the beach. Body and board surfing, swimming, snorkeling and fishing all within walking distance.
This cozy home is well maintained with plantation style, glossy white painted wood walls throughout, hardwood floors, Pine and rattan furnishings, complete kitchen with granite countertops/maple cabinets, add to that homey feeling. The master bedroom has a king bed while the second bedroom has one extra long double bed, for a maximum of 3 persons. Both bedrooms have access to the covered back lanai (deck) through French style sliding glass doors. Step off the lanai into the beautiful yard with tropical plants and green grass. There are no houses behind the cottage, just a grassy meadow and a beautiful, unobstructed view of the majestic vegetation covered mountains surrounding Hanalei. The cottage is carefully cleaned after each guest leaves, so it is spotless for the next guest. Hedges to the left and right of the house, give lots of privacy from neighbors.
If you look closely you can see long majestic waterfalls that drop over 2000 feet! The lovely yard is landscaped with Hawaiian plants and fruit trees. The colors in the house are entirely coordinated including the charming comforters and dust ruffles on each bed.
The cottage sleeps a maximum of 3 people, well-behaved children are welcome. Breakfast is not included but this is such a bargain you won't mind fixing your own!

"We just wanted to tell you how happy we are to be back in Tutu's Cottage and how wonderful we think the improvements are that you/ve made here (remodeled in 2007 - this was their second trip)! The new classy kitchen, the front and wrap around lanai, even the foam mattress pad on the bed are all much appreciated and help make us feel very comfortable.

Tutu's Cottage was absolutely wonderful and was the perfect place to relax at the end of our fun days exploring the island. Thank you for the experience of staying in your beautiful house.
