Property description

Enjoy this haven of peace and tranquility. Private yet convenient to all Volcano sites. Relax in this charming country cottage surrounded by beautiful native trees and flowers. A bird lovers delight. Take walks, hike, ride bikes, play golf or just settle in front of a cozy fire and read a book or watch a movie from our extensive DVD collection.

This modified A-frame house features two bedrooms downstairs. One with a queen bed and one with a twin bed. These two bedrooms share the downstairs bathroom. Upstairs there is a large master suite with a king bed, sitting area and private bath. There is extra bedding and futons for overflow guests. Each room of the house is tastefully decorated in a charming country motif featuring handmade pine furniture by a local artisan and paintings, drawings and pottery by local artists. The kitchen is fully equipped with high end modern appliances. Everything you need to make your stay comfortable is provided (4 slice toaster, blender, mixer, slow cooker, waffle maker, coffee maker, bean grinder and more). Hot chocolate, coffee and a variety of teas are provided. You will also find name brand bath products, hairdryer, first aid kit and common paper products. Just bring your personal items and you will be right at home.

This quiet residential area is situated around the Volcano Golf Course. The 4000 foot elevation boasts beautiful sunny days and cool nights. The clear skies provide amazing star gazing.

A half hour drive takes you to the beautiful Punaluu black sand beach for swimming or snorkling or into Hilo town for shopping and sight seeing.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: Mike and I are 30 year residents of the Big Island. We have always loved the Volcano area and spent a lot of time camping and staying at different B&B's in the area. We purchased Pukeawe Cottage in 2001 and then within the next few years we were able to purchase the lots on both sides of our house giving us almost an acre of land. Much of the land was over taken by invasive species and we have worked hard to clear the land and replant with natives and non invasive plants. We feel very proud of what we have created here and hope our guests enjoy the park like surroundings.

Why Volcano:
We chose to buy our future retirement home in this neighborhood because it is secluded yet close to all the things we enjoy. Hiking and biking and working in our gardens are things we enjoy when we visit our home in Volcano and we look forward to doing more of it when we are able to retire. We are both very busy small business owners in Kona so we cherise all the time that we have at Pukeawe Cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will be visited daily by the birds that drop in to be fed. We provide the food so you can enjoy their presence.
