"This is a wonderful little get away up in the green hills with a quaint lane and bridge. It is a great place to watch the birds in the yard and enjoy the flowers, but the best part is that you feel so cared for. Karin provides a wonderful personalized assortment of goodies for breakfast and snacks. There are fresh flowers everywhere (unless you are allergic). There is a wealth of cooking utensils, pots and pans. We enjoy cooking at home and this made it easy. The Cottage was one of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii. When we return we would want to stay here again."

"This was a relaxing ending to our trip. The home is beautiful and the grounds are breathtaking. The small bench at the end of the property is perfect for a morning cup of coffee or an end-of-day glass of wine. The spa and sauna are a plus. The caregivers were available but respectful of our privacy. We would highly recommend this property."

"It's hard to add any more details as the other reviews describe it very well. So I'll just tell you that every time I looked up from reading or cooking or relaxing on the bed, the view took my breath away. This is a place to sink into, to allow yourself the time to feel the rhythm of life there. We stayed in 4 different VRBO homes on the Big Island, all beautiful, and most with more amenities, but this is the one that I will come back to.
We took a tour of the Waipio Valley just minutes from the house, and loved it. Next time we will have the tour drop us off and spend more time there (the tour from the art gallery nearby will drop you off and then pick you up on one of their later tours).
Thank you Kristan for sharing this amazing home on VRBO!"

"We wanted to try staying somewhere inland for the first time and we loved it. The cottage was comfortable and we loved feeding the pig. Such a lovely place. We walked a short distance up the road and visited the Hawaiian Vanilla Company (great vanilla shakes). We went to Honoka'a several times. Such a darling town. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. My husband and I loved it."
