About Andy or Bob

Love for NATURE & Gardening and a need to be near the sea are the reasons we became stewards of this property. We are in our 50-60's, actively involved in both Puna and San Francisco communities, and hoping to spend more time in Puna as we age.

Andy or Bob purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Andy or Bob chose Puna District

We have been vacationing in Puna, Hawaii for over eleven years renting a friend's home. After becoming attached to the native culture, tropical landscape, and outdoor activities, we decided to build our own home. We designed and constructed the cottage based on our eleven years of vacation living, culling features from the many homes we saw in the area and tailoring them to our Hawaiian lifestyle pursuit of comfortable simplicity.

What makes this cottage unique

Steep terrain reveals spectacular 170 degree view of the Pacific ocean and exposes the property to gentle trade winds. Proximity of rain forest ensures a symphony of night sounds and a remote, jungle feel at your doorstep.

All wood construction (cedar walls and roof, eucalyptus floors, Ipe deck) is rare in the tropics. You'll enjoy the woody fragrance.

Guestbook comments from the manager

By: Kim UIf you are looking for an off-the-beaten-path experience in Hawaii, then this is the place to do it! The house is located in a beautiful spot, with lovely veiws over the ocean, a few miles away. Privacy, solitude, romance. Well-equipped, well designed interior with comfortable furnishings. The deck is a great place to have morning coffee, or a romantic dinner. The area is distinctive - no over-commercialism here!! Pahoa is a funky little town, and Hilo is a favourite of mine. Bob and Andy have stocked the book shelves with great reading material and information so you can find fun things to do within easy distances. Thanks for sharing this lovely cottage with other adventurous travelers!

A rare treat

  • 5 of 5

This place has to be seen to be comprehended. I was really impressed by how meticulously the house is constructed; not a single detail was overlooked. It's also decorated and arranged with incredbly good taste. The queen size bed faces to the southeast towards two oversized sliding glass doors, offering a broad view of untouched jungle to wake up to. Facing east provides a panoramic view of the ocean. This is truly one of my favorite places on earth, and I have no doubt that I'll be coming back. Bob and Andy were very helpful and accomodating as I made my reservation on short notice.

The abundance of fresh fruit in the kitchen on my arrival was an especially nice touch. I feel that I got much more than I paid for.

Tropical paradise

Absolutely beautiful home in a gorgeous tranquil tropical setting. We loved it. So relaxing to sit on the lanai listening to the frogs and watching the sunset.

Fabulous Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic stay at this beautiful cottage. It was so calm and serene; we felt like we were all alone in a private oasis. It rained really hard and the entire day when we first arrived and we were concerned it would rain all week, but it didn't. We were able to enjoy beautiful sunshine and relax on the deck and read. The stars are also very beautiful at night. The cottage had a very bohemian style and was lemon scent. It reminded me of a spa. And everything was there that we needed. We'd love to come back and enjoy some more time there. Thank you so much, Andy and Bob!

Such a wonderful place to discover Big Island.

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful place to discover Big Island. Comfortable and clean house, full of details and decoration from around the world, ideal for a couple. We made unforgettable memories while staying there, sunset hiking to the lava flow, breakfast with geckos, seeing superb rain storms, having a brew stargazing on the grass, peacefully waking up with the sun.

A place now in our hearts, we will come back.

Terrific

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely - worth many hours just wandering through the landscape. The area is quite interesting - close to Hawaii Volcano National Park and the Puna coast.

The bungalow is very well designed and maintained - perfect for a peaceful escape.
