Kalapana cottage description

We are Located on the southeast shore on the Kalapana coast. As a completely separate guest home on nearly 3 acres of an ocean front parcel, this very private rental is nestled in a lush tropical garden and has all the charm of old Hawaii. This all cedar cottage provides homey comfort in a relaxed rural area away from the usual tourist scene yet with easy accessibility to other attractions. A private driveway with covered carport, a sunny yard and an abundance of flowers and fruit trees add to the convenience and pleasure of staying in your own piece of paradise. In the 2009 Summer Edition of 'Outside Magazine', Peaceful Cove Cottage was rated one of the top 50 best places in the country to 'get away from it all'.

Relax on the lanai in some of the best weather Hawaii has to offer; or let the soothing sound of ocean waves invite you to meander along your own private nature trail through a pristine wooded area rich in native flora. A minute's walk brings you to the beautiful ocean and peaceful cove. Blue skies, sparkling water and a fascinating coastline lie before you. Walk right along the ocean easily for miles on an old lava field and discover volcanic black sand and interesting lava formations,(lower lava trail). Hunt for shells and witness spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and if you're lucky you may view at a safe distance the incredible sight of recent lava activity flowing into the ocean. Or take the 'upper lava trail' which is a bit more rugged but walkable on the dramatic cliffs with sea spray propelling high into the air and a 360' view taking in the coastline and mountain. Also awaiting you at this spot we have named 'turtle bay' is the privileged chance to watch sea turtles riding the waves and/or diving for food The shoreline is rocky and the ocean not suitable for swimming but these walks are a one-of-a-kind exploration. Swimming and snorkeling are available in nearby tide pools or warm ponds within a short drive. Also a small black sand beach where you may enter the water is within a short drive.
We welcome you to visit us in Kalapana on the Big Island for a vacation of a life time.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: Our family transplanted to Hawaii from the mainland in 1975 and have made this incredible island our home ever since. We bought this lovely 3 acre ocean front property in 1986 while it was in it's original pristine state. Carefully and tenderly we sculpted the environment to maintain the natural integrity of the land. We built 2 homes on the property, one where we live full time and the other as a guest cottage. The homes are separated by lush vegetation with separate driveways and cannot be seen or heard from one another yet we are close enough to be available to our guests at any time. The result is a unique tropical landscape where we offer our guests a glimpse of life in true old Hawaii.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kalapana:
                  Kalapana is a place of exquisite natural beauty and real Hawaii charm. This is a rural community where a slow pace is the norm and the sense of aloha is respected and practiced. We were drawn to this area for having the best weather on the island. The prevailing trade winds blow from just the right direction to keep the temperature pleasant all year round. The rainfall is gentle and light- just enough to allow for an abundance of flowers and foliage, but not too wet. The sun shines, the sea sparkles and at night the stars seem close enough to touch.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Please note that the grounds are graced by four sweet cats. Kea, Wili, Leo and Bro are right at home in your lap or they will become scarce if you prefer. They are not allowed inside and they have their meals at my home. We also have lovely song birds and seed is provided if you choose to feed the birds.
