About Laurel Smithson
I am born and raised in Hawaii. My husband Kalani and I love to travel the world and meet new people. We wanted to share a bit of paradise with our guests. Note a dog boarding kennel shares the property.We are the original owner of the property. Built the home and cottage. Planted all trees, orchards and landscape ourselves. Our labor of love. Hawaii is where we call home. The Royal Palm Cottage is New, built in August 2019.
Why Laurel Smithson chose Hakalau
The road we live on is quite historic. Sugar cane used to be planted on this section of Chin Chuck Road. The soil is very fertile and most of the property is home to over 200 exotic fruit trees. Lychee, Rambuton, Mangosteen, Mango, Papaya and Atemoya. The parcels are mostly10 acres and are well maintained and most have agriculture zoning. Many fruit orchards and farms line both sides of the road. It is a breath of fresh air. On a brisk winter morning, you can see Mauna Kea and the telescopes on a snow capped mountain. When you drive down the road, you may see a whale spouting in the ocean.
What makes this Cottage unique
15 miles from Hilo town with not even one stop light along the way. Beautiful coast line drive in both directions along highway 19. 500 foot elevation keeps us cool with tradewind breezes, well maintained Farm style neighborhood. Tuesday's we have a Hakalau Farmer's market that hosts live music and local farmers with their produce baked goods and crafts. We also have 2 ladies from Thailand making delicious pad Thai, green paypaya salad and curries right there on site. Lots of new and old farmers join together to add to Hakalau's charm.
