About the owner: As a retired interior designer of Swedish-Dutch heritage, it was natural to design and build this cottage for my mother to her requirements and nostalgia for her homeland. Having lived on the big Island for over 37 years, my love for this area has remained steadfast. Guests of the Cottage feel the energy and special European touches which make it a welcoming experience. Writers, families, honeymoon couples, retired friends, all have had their own individual reactions, and all have been happy guests. As we say here- 'E Komo Mai'- Welcome! Please open the link for guest's comments.
Why the Owner Chose Honokaa, HI, USA:
This cottage was built for my mother so that she could be fairly close to our home after my father died. We had chosen this area originally for its privacy, green surroundings, healthy altitude and temperate climate.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Location is out of the 'vog zone',( typically around Kona) and temperatures are moderate without need of air conditioning. Access to beaches and scenic vistas are within a short drive, and Mauna Kea is visible as you walk the country road which fronts the Cottage.
