Also you may call my cell: 808-896-8937 which is always with me, the Inn is a little expansive so some times I don´t hear the bell if I am fixing something or in our quarters.
For our Banyan Cottage please continue on around and past this driveway, and look for the second mailbox that says "Banyan C". The number on the mailbox is 76-770 Hualalai Road. This is also visible at night. Turn right immediately into the Banyan Cottage parking area. The porch light will be on and the key will be in the door, you can go right in. We will be watching for you. If it is late, we will catch up with you in the morning. It is best to park with the back of the car to the Cottage for better vision in leaving.
