My extended family rented the main plantation house and two separate cottages. There was more than enough room for the fifteen of us ranging from grandparents to parents to teenager to little ones. We have rented many homes through VRBO, and often have issues with space, so we were so happy to have such a big house with so many beds and bathrooms to spread out in. The home is very charming. If you are looking for the fancy resort lifestyle that Hawaii can offer, then this may not be for you. If you are looking for a quiet retreat, then this is perfect. The location is centrally located and a short-ish drive to the beach. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub every day. There is a large kitchen that is equipped with anything you need to cook - there was even a coffee grinder and slow cooker. We took full advantage of this and cooked every day. There is a grill, as well, and Marty even dropped off fresh bananas and avocados grown on the premesis. If you want to go out, the home is a short walk to the charming town of Makawao, which has restaurants and coffee shops and a bakery. The home is a little out of the way, so you will need a car to get to Hawaii tourist sites. At the end of our busy days, we were always so happy to come back to the house to relax. I would recommend (and already have) to anyone with a big family. We had a wonderful time.
