About the property

5 ACRE GATED TOTAL PRIVATE COTTAGE IN AN OHI'A FOREST

TOTALLY PRIVATE 1,000 SQARE FT. COTTAGE SURROUNDED BY OHI'A TREES, PLAMS AND ORCHIDS. IF SERENITY IS WHAT YOUR LOOKING FOR IN A GETAWAY THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. THE COTTAGE OPENS COMPLETELY TO THE OUTSIDE FLORA AND THE TRADE BREEZE JUST CARESSES YOUR SKIN. THE AIR IN KAPOHO IS SOME OF THE BEST AIR IN THE WORLD.

THE COTTAGE HAS A COMPLETE KITCHEN AND EVERYTHING YOU'D NEED TO ENJOY SOME OF THE BEST SNORKELING ON THE ISLAND, WHICH IS ONLY MINUTES AWAY. OH, I MUST NOT FORGET TO MENTION THE WARM POND, MY FAVORITE PLACE IN THE WHOLE WORLD, A MILE AWAY.

THE COTTAGE HAS A KING BED, A FUTON COUCH THAT OPENS TO A DOUBLE BED AND I ADD ANOTHER DOUBLE BED IF NEEDED FOR CHILDREN, THE COTTAGE IS CHILDREN FRIENDLY. THERE IS AN INSIDE SHOWER AND AN OUTSIDE SHOWER WHICH IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE. (I LIVED IN THE COTTAGE WHILE I WAS BUILDING THE MAIN HOUSE). THE COTTAGE HAS A LIBRARY OF BOOKS, MAPS AND MOVIES TO WATCH ON DVD, SORRY THE COTTAGE DOESN'T HAVE TV. IT HAS WI-FI WHICH IS SHARED WITH THE MAIN HOUSE.

MASSAGE CAN ALSO BE ARRANGED UPON REQUEST.

About ROSEMARIE NATHEWITCH

RETIRED HAIRSTYLIST AFTER 40 YEARS, BUT STILL CUT A BIT AT HOME.

I LIVE ON THE PROPERTY AS WELL ( ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PROPERTY) WITH MY 94 YEAR OLD MOM WHO I BROUGHT TO LIVE WITH ME 2 1/2 YEARS AGO. WHO BY THE WAY IS STILL HOLDING HER OWN. AND I MUST NOT FORGET BELLA, MY 11 YEAR OLD JACK RUSSELL.

ROSEMARIE NATHEWITCH purchased this cottage in 2002

Why ROSEMARIE NATHEWITCH chose Kapoho

THE BEAUTY AND SERENITY YOU'LL FEEL ONCE YOU PASS THROUGH MY GATE IS LIKE NOTHING ELSE IN KAPOHO. YOU'LL FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE THE WHOLE PROPERTY TO YOURSELF. THE FOREST IS STILL PRETTY MUCH UNTOUCHED. I KEPT THE ORIGINAL FOREST. I WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO OPEN THE PROPERTY IN 2002, I WANTED TO KEEP THE BOTANICAL BEAUTY AND 450 YEARS OLD LAVA FORMATIONS THAT REMIND ME OF PELE'S SCULPTURES.

THIS PROPERTY IS A MUST SEE AND ENJOY.

What makes this cottage unique

THE PRIVACY AND THE FEEL OF SERENITY ONCE YOU ENTER THIS UNIQUE BOTANICAL PARADISE.

SO PRIVATE AND SO CLOSE TO THE OCEAN WITHOUT HAVING NEIGHBORS.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rose,

Thank you for the wonderful stay in your lovely cottage. We treasure the time we are having as we discuss new places and new faces during our visit. It's hard to believe our stay is coming to an end this week. We'll miss the peaceful setting, the frog song and the fresh air.

Thank you for making this place available! We are feeling oh so good,

Pam and John

Notes:
The ocean is just minutes away for some of the best snorkeling on the island. Volcano National Park is just 45 minutes away. Lava Tree State Park you pass on the way here, just 4 miles out of Pahoa and 4 miles from here. The 'Red Road' (Route 137) is a drive I still love after enjoying it for 35 years. It is a beautiful drive along the ocean (10 miles) to Kalapana.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 4 night stay at this lovely, private cottage. Rosemarie has thought of everything anyone would need to enjoy the area around Kapoho - beach towels, chairs, snorkels and fins, boogie board, cooler and coffee go-cups. Also the BBQ was great to use. The wifi access is shared with her house so there is a schedule for that. Rosemarie was accommodating with our request for hours to use the internet although a separate line for the cottage would be an improvement. We enjoyed Issac Hale Park, going to the end of the road to Uncle Robert's, and this is an easy place to base to explore both Volcanoes and the Hilo area.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thanks for your kind review. I do want to add that the reason the Internet is shared is because Hawaiian Telcom will not give me a second HI Speed Internet even with a second phone number, for one property or else I would have it. They only offered Dial UP, which I'm sure no one would want. And the property being five acres, there is no "line of site" for one modem to work, which is all I'm allowed. I thought I explained that to you. My guests have priority and you were given the exact times you wanted it without a problem for either one of us.

A Beautiful Garden Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Rosemarie's lovely house in a beautiful garden sanctuary.

Rosemarie is a lovely person and runs the house and estate in a highly competent and thoughtful way. Everything we needed was in the house and the surrounding area is beautiful.

Thank you, Rosemarie, for a wonderful vacation.

Rosie provided a great stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin in the tropical woods is remote and romantic. There were geicos and they were harmless and rather cute. Rosie provided everything we need e.g. cookingware, cleaning products, beach chairs, snorkel masks and fins and plenty beach towels. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Welcoming and cozy.

  • 4 of 5

Rose was most welcoming. The house was charming and peaceful - except for the frogs at night (didn't bother our sleeping tho). Nicely situated for island adventures.
