Paauilo cottage description

Our cozy cottage features quiet solitude next to a seasonal stream and lush native trees. Guests will appreciate complete privacy as it is located far off the main road on a private drive nestled under the shade of kukui nut trees. We built this cottage for those who want to step away from the hustle and bustle of the world.

You may choose to completely unplug from the world, or access the internet and phone at our Mill site, (.5 mile from our Vanilla Mill). A washer and dryer are also available for you to use at the Mill site.

There are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds. There are also two sleeping lofts (both with star gazing skylights that open to let in the cool mountain air). Each loft has a twin mattress. There is a bathroom with tub and a full kitchen.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Located on the property of the Hawaiian Vanilla Company, a three generation family farm and business. The former sugar plantation land is now lush and verdant, offering home to many native plants and animals. The ocean lies below and majestic Mauna Kea above us--there are incredible views all over the property and you will have more than 14 acres to enjoy.


                      Owner info

                      Why the Owner Chose Paauilo:
                      Born and raised on Oahu, we wanted to raise our children in a more rural setting, so we set our sights on moving to the Big Island. We bought our property in 1998 and had the romantic notion to start a farm on this former plantation land. We knew we wanted to grow something different and learned that vanilla grows in Hawaii. Through many trials and victories, we built our little company on the slopes of Mauna Kea. And then….. people started writing about us and wanted to visit us. We bought and recycled the old DeLuz slaughterhouse and have turned it in to a place for people to come and fill their senses with vanilla. Today, we have more than 15,000 guests visit us every year, taking part in one of our events (Vanilla Luncheon Experience, Tastings, Farm Tours, UpCountry Teas or themed dinner events, check out our web site return year after year in a pilgrimage for our sweet bread pudding with browned-butter-Bourbon sauce. The cottage is an extension of our vision to bring people to stay longer and experience the beauty of the place we call home. We hope you'll come visit us soon!
