  • Little piece of heaven

    "Had such a peaceful time saying at this little gem. Owner Charles and his little dog Scooby has to be the perfect host. My husband and I have already decided to come back soon. We already miss this little cottage and most of all Scooby."

  • Serene Hawaii

    "Hello Mel Today is our last day at your lovely beach home. We are back to Canada in the morning. Just wanted to send a quick thank you. What a perfect and wonderful home you have here. We feel fortunate to have found it. You have obviously poured a lot of care and love into this home and it shows. It's a beautiful serene place to experience Hawaii . Karen, your downstairs tenant, has been most helpful, and it was nice having someone to greet us. We didn't end up using your kayak but went with Aloha Kayak on their wonderful Eco-friendly tour. A great experience, which we highly recommend as the snorkelling at Captain Cook was the best ever! We stayed at 3 different accommodations around the Big Island, never having been here before. We can say that your home and location is our favourite and we would love to return. Mahalo!"

  • Kick Back by K Bay

    "The Hale Lana studio provided everything we could want: a peaceful and very comfortable space, indoor/outdoor living, ample cooking equipment, extra towels, washer, clothesline, beach chairs, boogie board, directions to local sites, and a fabulous outdoor shower! Easy walks to nearby beaches. The snorkeling at Captain Cook Monument and Two Step is spectacular. Look at the spinner dolphins in the bay, but please don't touch."

  • Love This Place

    "I found Tara Cottage on line, read the reviews and based my decision to stay there on the excellent reviews and of course the photos. We loved it! You can plan on relaxing at the home with beautiful views or explore the island, the location is perfect. I don't often return to the same vacation spot because we feel there is so much of our world to see. Since we left we have discussed many times, how much we will be back to Tara Cottage. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend a week as Mike's quest. He has the home looking fantastic. The views from the windows and grounds are more then we ever imagined it could be. When we arrived after a long day of travel we were welcomes with fresh fruit, nuts, bread and coffee that was grown on his land. I don't think there was anything that could be improved on. This place is a 10 out of 10. I look forward to coming back someday!"
