                        We only stayed for a few short days at this location and it was central to the rest of the island, lending itself to exploring. The cottage, like most all other places, has no A/C, so if you are not used to high humidity, you will be hot. One of the bedrooms does not have a ceiling fan, so you are at the mercy of the breeze in that room. Once it cools off in the evening, it's fine. The cons: There are no ponds located here anymore. Linda did let us see her swimming pool where she moved the fish, but it was dark when we arrived, so we couldn't really see anything. The fish ponds and the ability to roam the property (3 lush acres!) were the main reasons we chose this over others. Our plan was for my partner to go to volcanos park and for the kids and I to relax for a few days here. Since there were no ponds and Linda did not extend an invitation to come back to see the fish nor explore the gardens on the property, we spent the days gone instead. My kids were seriously bummed to have picked out the listing and not be able to pick fruit themselves or feed the fish. There are no privacy coverings on the windows, but the only people traveling the drive would be Linda and her guests. If you are a modest person, this might bother you. Pros: The bathroom was great, the water pressure was great and the kitchen was nice. Linda brought us an amazing platter of fruit the day we were leaving, but we had just eaten breakfast, so we weren't able to fully enjoy the fruits of her labor. The grounds are very beautiful and the house is very tucked away. I really enjoyed the cacophony of the frogs and since I have chickens at home, the crowing of the roosters was no problem for us. The cut flower bouquets that Linda puts in the home are simply spectacular and I took photos of them for their beauty. She is evidently quite the gardener!

                        We thought the cottage looked so cute but when we arrived the place was hot inside and smelled a bit musty. There were no window coverings and even though the location was convenient and very secluded it made us uncomfortable knowing anyone could see in. It is in the rainforest which was lovely but watch out for the mosquitos. It was very private and that was nice.

                        Not only did i stay and just enjoy "chillin out" & doing a little sightseeing I also requested a class on how to grow vegetables & fruits. Linda was more than happy to accommodate. During the week stay she took a day and a half out of her busy schedule & gave me a basic knowledge of agriculture. Also nice acreage to roam out on & so easily beats the cramped environment of a hotel. Thanks again Linda. : D

                        What a relaxing and peaceful place to stay. We loved it. The house has everything that you need for an enjoyable stay. The surrounding gardens are beautiful! We really liked fishing in the fishpond late in the day. Linda was very helpful when we had any questions and had a lot of ideas for places to go and things to see. An ideal location to visit Volcano National Park and the sights around Hilo. Farmers markets in Hilo and surrounding area are great to visit for fresh produce, plants and gifts. Also, Uncle Roberts is a unique place to visit on Wednesday night. We can't wait until we come back to visit again!

                        My husband, daughter and her boyfriend, and I stayed for a week and a half. I came for hula training in Mountain View and found this fabulous 2-bedroom cottage for my family to stay in located in Kurtistown. Linda was such a kind, informative, and accommodating hostess. She took each of us on a tour of her beautiful garden (I must have spent about an 1 1/2 with her), gave us clipping of her plants to take back to California, and told us about all the wonderful areas to visit in Hilo. I told her I needed internet access for my job and although my work provided me with a Sprint wireless device, it didn't work. I found out that Verizon is the only carrier that works in that area. Linda went out and purchased a Verizon wireless device especially for me to use during our stay. This was so unexpected. I couldn't believe that she did this. I was truly appreciative. She embodies the true "Aloha Spirit." The cottage was clean, well kept and just the perfect size for us. The master bedroom bed was so comfy. The walk-in closet was a great help with all my luggage. The cottage is surrounded by lush greenery and flowers along with a small pond that she grows Tilapia in. Linda brought us fruit frequently. If we had a question, she was easy to find as she spends most of her day in her fruit and flower plantation. She always left us alone unless we needed her. Her cottage is centrally located to many attractions...Kilauea, Maku'u Market, lava flows, old town Hilo, Akaka Falls, etc. It is a little drive from the main road to the cottage so it is secluded and quiet...except for the cute coqui frogs at night. Linda - mahalo nui loa for providing us with a very enjoyable stay! A hui hou (until we meet again!) Me ke aloha - Laureen & Lou

                        My partner and I have just returned home to New Zealand after spending 5 nights at Kuulei Hale as part of a two-week holiday in Hawaii. We had such a lovely stay at the house - it was just what we wanted! It is a beautifully kept two-bed cottage set in Linda's huge section which is full of lush vegetation, fruit trees, a small pond and some beautiful flora. Even though it is on her section, Linda is totally not intrusive. However if you want to chat Linda is really friendly and accommodating and full of ideas of things to do that may not appear in your guide book, some real local knowledge. The house looks exactly like the pictures, is really clean and well furnished, and well equipped, with all the utensils etc you could wish for in the kitchen and plenty of clean linen etc. There is a washing machine and drier in the house too which was really handy. It is in a really peaceful spot so we had a couple of days of just kicking back and relaxing. It's only a couple of miles from the nearest small town though where there is a reasonably priced supermarket, and Hilo was only about 20 minutes or so away. The volcanoes are only down the road too. We thought it was great value for money and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. If you want a relaxing home-from-home experience in a tranquil setting we would really recommend Kuulei Hale! Aloha and mahalo Linda!

                        My husband and I had a great time staying here. It was clean (no chemical smell or musty smell that I noticed) and comfortable. The mattress was awesome, and we had many a good nights sleep listening to all the nighttime noises. The coqui frogs were amazing to listen to! Beautiful lush secluded surroundings. Linda was available if we needed her, otherwise she just left us to ourselves. Oh plus lots of yummy fruit, you should see her basil plants! Compared to the rental I got in Kona the week after my stay here (for the same price) Linda's place was a vacationers dream. Its a far drive, but you have to go to Waipio Valley if you can, we met Lance Armstrong there!

                        I inspected this property for an upcoming visit by my adult children. Linda, the owner, was very helpful and gracious and allowed me to inspect the cottage. Since my 10 month old granddaughter was to be staying there, I really scrutinized the cottage. I found it to be very clean and well kept. No bugs, nor evidence that there had been any bugs. Based on my visit, the children decided to book here rather than elsewhere. I knew if anything was amiss, that Linda would see to it immediately. I recommend this place for anyone who wants a quiet getaway, secluded, and a different experience from the hustle and bustle of a city hotel.

The cottage is in a great location to explore the whole island. My wife is an artist and she loved sitting in the garden and painting. The photos do a good job of showing the site. I loved exploring the parks. beaches and hiking trails. This is a beautiful place that I recommend to others! I can't wait to return!

                        Our experience staying at this cottage was so different from the other guests who have left comments that it’s hard to believe they’re describing the same place! Yes, Linda seems friendly, and does grow lovely fruits and flowers. But ... she demonstrated very little concern for many other important factors involved in maintaining a well-run vacation rental. Here were some of the problems my wife and I experienced: • The living room and kitchen had a strong, musty smell that didn’t go away, even after several days. Was it some sort of insecticide, or maybe moisture or mold in the furniture? • The kitchen seemed clean enough on first glance, but when you looked more closely you noticed there were smelly sponges on the counter, no dishwashing liquid, and seriously out-of-date food (from 2007) in the refrigerator and cupboards. Very unappetizing! • One night we bought something to bake for dinner, only to discover that the oven and broiler didn’t work at all. When we called Linda to tell her she said “Oh, I didn’t know - I’ve never used the stove in the cottage.” Also, two of the stove’s burners were broken. • Dirt and the bodies of dead bugs were on most of the window ledges. • The shower temperature never got to be more than lukewarm – too chilly to comfortably take a long, relaxing shower - which it's nice to do on vacation! • The bamboo curtains in the bedrooms were dilapidated and didn’t work, and there were no curtains on any windows in the rest of the house - including the bathroom. For the price we paid we didn’t expect this cottage to be elegant, but we did expect it to be clean and for everything to be in good working order. And from the descriptions we read, we expected it would be a cozy place where we would be able to hang out and relax. It was neither. We were so disappointed and uncomfortable we left 2 days early. And since Linda requires that you pay cash in advance, we were out our money, with no recourse.
