John and Darlene Sherlock – North Vancouver, British Columbia (4/21 – 26/2004) Our first and only cloudy day as we get ready to leave – somehow it makes it a little easier to go, but not much – our time here has been tranquil, full of just being in this beautiful place. The little oasis in back at night, watching falling stars and clouds crossing the moon, morning coffee at the end of the beach trail, even the bird symphony at 6:00 (or earlier!). Dinner last night at Lucy’s was superb, the best we found in Kailua (We’re going back for lunch…) It was great to stay in a place with such a warm family “vibe” – made our stay even nicer.

Sandra and Tom Irish – Tacoma, WA (4/16 – 4/21/2004) We wish to thank you for a quiet and serene place to come back to each day, especially trying to find our way around Honolulu, what a refuge to get back here. Also each time we called to ask directions or where to go sightseeing or to eat you were always there with great ideas. We will be sure to tell others what a great place to stay.

Stefanie and Kerry Ray – Sugar Land, TX (3/13 – 3/19/2004) Kerry and I loved Kailua and your gorgeous studio! You thought of everything we could possibly need, and made us especially happy by printing an NCAA basketball tourney bracket. Thank you for your attention to detail. The windward coast is by far the most beautiful side of Hawaii and we can’t wait to come back.

Gretchen and Rodney – Mendota Heights, MN (2/19 – 2/22/2004) I can’t believe it’s already time to go. Our stay here has been so nice. Your attention to detail and pride in presentation shines through, and for a couple who’s not very picky, we still appreciate when we “have it good”! We wish we could recreate this little oasis back home in Minnesota as a “cabin up north” and find places like this everywhere we travel. This is truly just paradise. Thank you so much for all you’ve done. What a great host!

Jennifer Elster – Blacksburg, VA (1/4 – 1/9/2004) Great Place! Great Location! Great Time! Privacy and convenience at the same time make this place a wonderful option for spending time on Oahu.

This was Fantastic!

Jacqueline and Dave – Virginia Beach, VA (11/23 – 11/30/2003) This has been a little home away from home which we have enjoyed so much. It’s been wonderful to set off on early morning “adventures” and then to have evening cookouts in the privacy of the patio. We have really been able to relax here and thank you both for your hospitality. We’ll be sure to recommend “Garden Studio” to our friends in Virginia and family in England!

Tracy and Quinn Donovan – Pittsburgh, PA (11/9 – 11/14/2003) Thanxs for your Aloha hospitality! We truly enjoyed your garden guest cottage and and will make another trip back to the islands very soon! This was Quinn’s first visit to Hawaii and he fell in love immediately and now understands me when I talk about me experiences living here 20 years ago.
