Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

in a beautiful area. It truly is away from it all -- bring breakfast with you if you come in the evening, or it's a trip to Pahoa. It's very near the lava flow viewing area, and the perfect place to drink coffee, look at the water and the tiny neighborhood around you, and pretend you're retired to the Big Island. :) Be aware that the cottage number is obscured by hibiscus if you are driving along the street. A kind neighbor helped us find it in the dark and rain. The bed is made of magic.

Thank you for everything! This was the best vacation we have ever had. The house was perfect for the two of us and close to everything we wanted to do. We enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you on the 4th of July! When we come back we will definitely be staying there again! Mahalo!

A wonderful place to stay while exploring the island.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures represent the property well. It was perfect for two people, but could accommodate two more on the futon. The kitchen is set up with everything you need and now has a good supply of ketchup and mustard going in the fridge. You may want to call first before hitting the grocery store to make sure you don't purchase items unnecessarily. The owners were very helpful. If you are there on a Wednesday night, you'll want to make sure to go to Uncle Robert's for the night farmers market. Such a good time with a band playing Hawaiian music all night. Lots of good food to pick from, so go hungry. We would definitely stay here again! The house was very clean and comfortable temperature wise. We loved that it was like being in your own sound machine with the morning birds singing and the frogs chirping at night. A very relaxed and laid back area. You won't regret spending a week or longer here.

Perfect Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. The house was supplied with everything we needed for our stay. The king size master bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was completely stocked with dishes, pots and pans and just about anything else you can think of. The front porch is a great place to sit and relax. There's a washing machine next door that you can use. The owners, who were right next door if we needed anything, gave us plenty of privacy and made us feel welcome at the same time. The house is in a nice quiet area and it's a very pretty drive along the ocean into town. The only negative is that you do not get cellphone service but there is a landline in the house to use if needed. There is wifi, which made it easy for us to chat with our family online. There's also a super sweet cat that comes to visit often. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would definitely recommend it.

Excellent vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage: I had an extended stay here in Dec 2015 – Jan 2016. The VRBO website description and pictures are accurate. This is a small, tidy, comfortably furnished one-bedroom cottage, most appropriate for 1-2 people. Very quiet location, on a dead end street so there is little traffic noise or noise from other properties. The lanai provides a distant view of the ocean and is equipped with table and chairs. It also has shades, to screen you from direct sun. Nice place for sitting and/or having your meals. Bedroom has a comfortable king bed, small chest of drawers, and large closet. Kitchen is well-equipped and has adequate counter space, full size fridge, gas range, pantry/closet, coffee/espresso maker, utensils, etc. Counter top bar is good spot to have meals, although the wooden stools are very hard. Living area has couch/futon, coffee table, and two chairs. It’s a nice comfortable area as well. Ceiling fans in living room and bedroom keep the cottage cool and pleasant. There is a nice collection of books to read. There is a washing machine at the main house and a large sheltered area to line-dry clothes. The hosts recycle, so I could collect my cans, bottles, etc and drop them in the recycling bins. The only problems I encountered were: 1, internet is very slow and often dropped. 2. Hot water is solar and comes from the main house. It takes a long time to get to the shower and often is only lukewarm early in the day or in cloudy weather.

The area: I’m a single woman and felt very comfortable and safe staying in this cottage and in Seaview. It is a very “walkable” community. Seaview Lawn oceanside park is 0.4 mile from the cottage. Seaview Lawn is a great place at any time, but especially evenings. Kalani Oceanside Retreat is ½ mile from Seaview Lawn. Kehena Beach is less than a mile from Seaview Lawn. Uncle Roberts Awa bar is 4 miles away, a good place to go for Weds evening and Saturday morning market and music. Be aware of cars, bikes, pedestrians on the narrow roads.

The hosts – Mark and Richard – live next door. They are outstanding – friendly and helpful if you have questions or need anything, but not intrusive. They strive to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. Thank you Mark and Richard for making me feel very much at home here!

Overall, I highly recommend this cottage.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sarah for the review. We are going to install an on demand water heater to correct the hot water issue. We have also been in contact with the internet provider and were told that they would be upgrading to fiber optic this year to correct the internet issue. Hope you will consider us in the future.

We had an excellent stay at the cottage. Great view, everything you could imagine you may need is already there for your use. The place is very clean. It's nice to hear the rain showers at night and hear the numerous frogs singing. Our hosts made us feel very much at home, but also respected our privacy when we wanted it. There is even a washing machine available for your use( at no charge too). We just hope there is a vacancy for our next trip to the island.
