Property description

Surrounded by trees and flowers, this quaint cottage is located on the grounds of a spiritually-oriented retreat complex in Waiohinu, Hawai‘i. Nestled in a lush, green valley with an old-Hawaii feeling, this special retreat is a one-room cottage with two private outdoor lanai spaces. Amenities include a queen size bed, three sitting areas, breakfast bar or desk, kitchenette, outdoor dining and a two-person whirlpool tub. Enjoy a soak in the evening with pull-down bamboo shades and sparkling lights. Or use the hand-held shower for a quick clean-up. Private parking. Centrally located on the south end of the Big Island with 40-minute access to the vast Volcanoes National Park, 15 minutes to the famous Punalu`u Black Sand Beach with its resting sea turtles, 30 minutes to Wood Valley Buddhist Temple, 30 minutes to South Point, and a little over an hour to Hilo or Kailua-Kona. Pick fresh fruit for breakfast, head out for the day and return to a quiet setting with vast, clear, starry night sky. Wireless Internet. Located on the main road for convenience.
