Property description

This beautiful cottage on a large, fenced lot welcomes you to relax, breathe deeply, and enjoy the many gifts of the Big Island. After preparing your food in the fully equipped kitchen, eat your meals on the large covered lanai as you take in the view of the lush, expansive back yard with Mauna Kea in the background.

Our guests enjoy being away from the noise
and business of town and making the picturesque 20-minute drive to Hilo. Right down the road is a peaceful beach where you can play in the sand, watch the river flow into the ocean, and do water sports; waterfalls and botanical gardens are minutes away. When you return home, park under the carport and settle into the large master bedroom for the night. The additional bed and futon couch are comfortable sleeping accommodations for up to three more guests.

This cleanly designed home is the perfect place to soak in the Hilo District's temperate air and peaceful environment. Your host, Tamara, will be available to help while giving you the space you need. She can give you recommendations for local restaurants and attractions and help you get to know her beautiful fruit farm.Whether you're planning a romantic getaway, a family vacation, a trip with friends, or an adventure, you'll feel right at home at this garden cottage.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Tamara Lupoloff built and planted her farm here in Hakalau. Recently retired from 27 years in the travel industry, she knew this little piece of Hawaii was where she wanted to be. Her planning and hard work has allowed her to share her dream with others, and she enjoys welcoming guests from all over the world to experience the serenity and beauty of Hawaii.

Why the Owner Chose Hakalau:
Tamara loves the tropical weather and ability to grow a wide variety or fruits year round. The view and the neighborhood, with her close proximity to the ocean, make it home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Tamara custom-built the houses and planted all ten acres just the way she had always dreamed. The views are magnificent. Guests have space to stretch out and get away from it all while enjoying the easy, beautiful drive to all that Hilo, and the Big Island, has to offer.
