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.

We loved staying at Rose’s place. Everything about it was fabulous! We called it glamping at its absolute finest. In the 2 weeks we were there, we never even closed any of the six, yes six French doors. We named the geckos, sang with the frogs and relished sleeping under the mosquito netting. We must have said this is so relaxing at least ten times a day.
Some people might be disturbed by not being “connected” 24 hrs a day. But we managed just fine for two weeks and even managed to make real estate deals with no cell coverage and the shared internet.
The grounds are stunningly beautiful. It was like having our own private botanical garden. And we walked them every morning. The warms pools are 6 minutes away and tide pooling is even closer. And Rose provides anything you could possibly need from pool towels to boogie board.
And the icing on the cake was Rose herself. She is a breath of fresh air, funny, congenial and knower of things. She was like hanging with a sister. I can’t say enough about our stay. The whole experience was just exquisite.
Mahalo Sophia and Marc for such a wonderful review. And look forward to catching up with you when you return to the Big Island as home owners yourself in September.
I just like to add that there are 16 french doors that open, not six. I think that is what you meant to say.
It was a real pleasure have you both as my guest and definitely looking forward to seeing you both again.
Rosie's place is amazing!!
It is like sleeping in a tropical forest!(less the bugs) Rose has everything you could possibly need for your stay and more! We really enjoyed our stay here and will be back! Mike & Kim -Illinois
Mahalo Mike and Kim,
It was my pleasure to host your stay here at Rosiesretreat.
I want to also thank you so much for leaving the cottage as clean as you found it. Not everyone does...
Looking forward to seeing you both again someday!
A Beautiful Garden Sanctuary
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.
Aloha Florence and David,
Mahalo, for your great review. You truly were wonderful guests as well and I look forward to having you next year for a month.
Have a healthy and happy year, until me meet again,
Fabulous romantic get away
Beautiful space in a very private setting. Super comfortable, with all needs pre-anticipated. Close to amazing snorkeling. Rosie is a lovely host and has created an exceptional place. Highly recommend staying here.
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.
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.
Rosie provided a great stay
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.
