Hawi cottage description

Hale Ke Aloha.. House of Love
Situated on 2 acres, this spacious 1 bedroom lovers cottage has recently been updated and sits on the top perch of a tropical fruit orchard. Walk out your front door and harvest the seasons sweetness including mango, lychee, banana, coconut, avocado, mangosteen, star fruit, sugarcane, pineapple, and many more. Whether in the sunroom with books and music or the screened lanai, enjoy the comfort and peace of birdsong and ever present tradewinds. This private cottage is perfect for a get-away feel, yet still close enough to walk to the quaint unspoiled town of Hawi. Come to be alone and take advantage of a slow pace of living, or bring the kids(or the kid in you!) and enjoy a variety of local adventures including zip lining, ATV rides, horsebackriding, mountain and road bike tours, hiking, 'flumin da ditch' and many more! We welcome children, and can provide books, games etc. Our home is your home- come and enjoy the simple satisfying life of the Big I.


Whether you want to relax and watch the sun set into the tropical trees, spend the day at the beach, or have an eco-adventure… there are many options to enjoy in this special preserved part of the island. Local living is just a short walk away to the quaint unspoiled historic town of Hawi. Feel the aloha in this slow paced welcoming North Kohala village. From homemade coconut lilikoi fudge and macadamia nut ice cream to an assortment of local farm grown produce, meats, and fish available at farmers markets ...savor the flavor of the tropics. We also recommend the many delicious restaurants and cafes, often including great live music... even on a Sunday morning while you sip your fine cafe, smoothie or tasty breakfast! Or browse the Hawaii inspired shops with everything from art and jewelry to shell inlaid toilet seat covers… something for everyone!


Just a 15-minute drive to the north end of the island. Park the car, take many breathtakingly beautiful photos, and then enjoy a 20-minute walk down to the Pololu Valley black sand beach (probably clicking photos at every turn!). A 25-minute drive south brings you to our favorite beaches on the island. Each one offering its unique qualities from reef snorkeling and diving to white sand sunbathing and surfing. You can stop 5 minutes sooner and sign up for many other activities including dolphin and whale watching, manta ray diving, scuba/snuba, dinner/sunset cruises, sport fishing, etc.


For yet a different climate head 20 minutes up the mountain road through 'paniolo' (Hawaiian cowboy) country to lookout at the Three Sisters: Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Hualalai, as they meet the ocean and get a glimpse and visual of how our island was formed. Turn your head in the other direction to see their “brother”, Maui and the top of Haleakala Crater on a clear day. Hawi is also not far from many day trip possibilities to other parts of the island, with an 1 hour drive to Kona, or 1 ½ hours to Hilo, or keep going another ½ hour further to be at Volcano village.
Having lived on the islands for 20 years we are happy to offer tour advice or answer any questions to maximize your visit to Hawaii.
