People love the cottage...
The Big Island's North Kohala is a travelers' delight, off the beaten path, it makes the area one of Hawaii's best-kept secrets.

Historic sites in walking distance to the famous statue of King Kamehameha, and to the Kamehameha State Park. Pololu Valley - with its majestic views, black sand beach, and scenic hiking trails is close by. Or just chill out, and enjoy some of the island's best beaches.

                                            This is a special cottage build by the owner and tucked behind his home. We arrived to beautiful flower arrangements in the small cottage. It was very clean and comfortable. The bed was very firm. The kitchen even came stocked with a few items needed for basic cooking and filtered water in the fridge. The yard was pleasant and quiet even though it sits just a block form the main road. It is relatively private if no one is staying in the new Airstream next door. It could use some comfortable outdoor seating. Eddie was very friendly and gave us some great suggestions for unpublished access to the beautiful coast. We would definitely stay there again.

                                            The studio is a perfect base while in North Kohala. Everything is as represented. And the cottage is beautiful, which enhances times spent there. Ed is a good host, allowing privacy, and helpful when asked. The other reviews are thorough, I can only second them and add my voice to the recommendations.

                                            What an outstanding cottage! I was so pleased with my experience. The cottage is beautiful. Well kept. Clean. Very comfortable bed and couch. I enjoyed the incredible light that come through the windows during the day. I practiced yoga out back with geckos and the sounds of birds. I enjoyed the mac nuts, pomelos and avocados from the property. Ed is a great guy who makes you feel welcome. I enjoyed the park right behind the property. It was fun to watch the locals playing football, basketball and great for walks. The cottage is near Pololu Lookout and Keokea Beach Park. Kapaa Park is close. You are also not far from the fantastic beaches of South Kohala. I enjoyed several meals from Minnies and Kava from the Kava Bar in Hawi. The cottage has an ice chest and beach chairs making beach days fun and easy. I would highly recommend this cottage. In fact, I plan to be back in Spring or Summer 2014. Thank you Ed for a wonderful week.

                                            Well kept, few problems though...right on top of a very very loud park, zero window coverings, no way to keep the sun out when you want to sleep in.

                                            Owner response: Aloha You can please most of the people most of the time, but you cannot please all of the people all of the time. I am sorry Derrick that the cottage did not live up to your expectations, and window covering are in the works. The park is a park where people enjoy themselves, cheering for their team, the crack of baseball bat, I've always rather enjoyed it, and it closes in the evening. Sorry again that it did not work for you so well..

                                            We loved this cottage! It is located in a laid-back little town and was a very quiet and friendly place to stay. The cottage was pretty and very clean, and we loved all the windows that opened out onto the beautiful--and private--backyard. We also loved that there was a kitchen where we could make our own food when we wanted; and yet there were restaurants within walking distance. It's also just a short drive to lots of beautiful beaches. The owner was also very easy to work with. We would definitely stay there again!!!

                                            Owner response: I always love it when I hear appreciation for the delightful people and lands of North Kohala... See you again some time...

                                            This is a quiet, private and comfortable place, nicely furnished and laid out. Perfect for anyone who enjoys Real Hawaii - the North Kohala still does not have a traffic light, and I hope it stays that way. From this house you can walk to a couple good places to eat, plus several galleries, plus a public park with a swimming pool, golf course, etc. Pololu Valley is a short drive - easy to get there at sunrise, before the tour buses. Ranches are not far off for horseback rides. Rely on the host Ed for local information, including where to get a massage to remove the plane seat from your back. If you're up to cooking, the Takata store has everything, but there are fine restaurants and a very fine coffee bar in Hawi. Plus Waimea is an easy drive along the most beautiful road in all Hawaii. Highly recommended. I will definitely stay here again!

                                            Our stay in the cottage was way too short. Kapaau on the northern tip of big island is very green, cloudy and off the touristic beaten path - here you can relax and the always empty highway takes you within 30min to the kohala coast beaches (where the weather seems to be always more sunny). The cottage is very clean, stylish, tastefully furnished, has an excellent equiped kitchen and is surrounded by green plants and trees. wonderful. we enjoyed the spirit very much! The landlord is very friendly and a really cool and relaxed guy who has nice tips for trips all over the island. A small supermarket is just 2 miles away. we recommend the cottage warmly. mary&olaf, germany

                                            Off the beaten path hide-away in Kapaau. Just right for relaxing, enjoying the outdoors, and feeling like a "local." The cottage is beautiful....a place for releasing your creativity, for local exploration, or just relaxing and listening to tropical sounds. You are a short drive from the most beautiful Kohala beaches....snorkeling, swimming, whale watching, sunsets. The Pololu Valley is a short drive and well worth it. As is Waipio Valley. Walking distance restaurants and art galleries in Kapaau. Hawi is only two miles away. Ed is a wonderful host. He is available to help, give advice, directions and ideas for outings. At the same time, you have complete privacy in the cottage. The pictures do not do this place justice...it is gorgeous. Once again, mahalo Ed....hope to see you again one day soon.
