Hilo cottage description

We are located on the lush, tropical side of the big island, just two miles north of the historic whaling town of Hilo. Our home is in a small, upscale neighborhood in the country and borders the old coastal road that winds past streams, waterfalls, and vine-covered bridges.

Honolii Beach is just a short walk down our one-lane road and has a beautiful picnic area with lifeguards, showers, and bathrooms. Honolii is very popular and has consistent waves year-round for surfers and boogie boarders. The freshwater river that empties into the bay has a huge swimming hole and two beautiful waterfalls just upstream.

Hiking, jogging, bikeriding,surfing, swimming, or just kicking back are activities you can do from the vacation cottage without driving anywhere. Our convenient location also makes it simple to visit the many scenic areas around the island.

And remember, one of the friendliest beaches on this side of the island is just a short stroll down the road


Amenities: Amenities: The spacious vacation rental has high ceilings, ceramic tile floors, and a new covered lanai. The fully-equipped kitchen features a refrigerator, 2 burner ceramic cooktop stove, coffee maker & grinder, microwave, toaster, rice cooker, blender, and a full set of dishes, pots, pans, and utensils that allows you to economize your vacation by cooking at home. The rental is beautifully furnished with a queen-size bamboo bed, a very comfortable double futon, wicker dresser and nightstand, kitchen table, and chairs. We also have cable TV with 77 channels and free wireless Internet. Boogie boards and snorkel gear are also available. Your privacy is insured, as this is our only rental.

Activities: Activities (on site or nearby): Swimming, surfing, boogie-boarding, fishing, or just relaxing are all activities you can enjoy at Honolii Beach. Bike-riding, jogging, or hiking are perfect activities along the one-lane old Mamaloha Highway that winds several miles past Honolii. Diving, golf, tennis, shopping, restaurants, museums, sightseeing are a five minute drive into town.
Volcano National Park is 45 minutes
Waimea cowboy town is 1 hour
Kona is 2 hours

Relax and enjoy aloha: One of the friendliest beaches on this side of the island is just a short stroll down the one-lane road.

Stay here and discover aloha.

              Location

              My vacation rental is located about two miles up the Hamakua Coast , just outside of Hilo town. Our close proximity to Hilo is very convenient for enjoying the amenities the east side of the island has to offer. Honolii Beach is a five-minute walk away and there are multiple attractions within a 15 minute drive such as Akaka Falls, Rainbow Falls, and Hawaii Botanical Gardens. Volcano National Park is only 45 minutes away and the cowboy town of Waimea is approximately one hour up the Hamakua Coast.

              Other Activities: Kicking back and having a good time

              About the owner: I teach biology at the University of Hawaii and this is my only rental. It is very important to me that my guests enjoy their stay at my cottage and experience the aloha that I have found on this island.
