This Hawaiian Plantation one bedroom style cottage is a cozy sought out place to stay.

The main bedroom has a four poster queen size bed. In the mini sitting room adjacent to the main bedroom is a comfy and cozy couch with a flat screen TV. In the kitchen area we offer seating for four at the kitchen table with a view of the pasture and ocean. The bathroom has a walk in shower with hand rails. Washer and Dryer are also located in the bathroom with toilet and sink. The bathroom door leads to the outside, and into the kitchen area.

Located less than 10 minutes from Historic Downtown Hilo ,and the renowned Farmers Market.

Wake up to the panoramic ocean views of the early morning sunrise while sipping on fresh local brewed coffee or tea while lounging on the porch swing. Your wake up call will be by one of nature's finest, a local rooster, or two. Country living at its best.

Surrounded by 20 acres of lush pasture land, you will see several horses, cattle and sheep grazing contentedly, sometimes right outside your bedroom window. We also have dogs and a barn yard kitty.

A beautiful salt water swimming pool with an infinity edge is available for your use during your stay. The swimming pool is located in front of our main home, just a stone throw away.

Take time for yourself and enjoy the beauty that Hamakua coast has to offer.

About Steve and Keala Zoll

Aloha! We are local residents of Hawai'i, born and raised. Being brought up with animals and coming from a ranching family, it is great to offer the lifestyle that we have lived. This cottage was built for family and friends to visit. Once our friends stayed at Pu'u Moi, we had offers from others who wanted the same experience of the country life, Hawaiian style. Our land has much to offer from green pastures, horses, chickens , sheep, little smiling dogs and waterfalls to rambutan orchids and endless mornings of beautiful sunrises.

Steve and Keala Zoll purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Steve and Keala Zoll chose Hilo District

This cottage was built for our mother to live in, and then we used it for family and friends to use when they would visit us in Hawai`i.

What makes this cottage unique

Being able to stay at this cottage is unique as it is surrounded by pasture land, animals, walking distance to a natural waterfall and pond, gated and no neighbors other than our home which is on the same property. We offer assistance as need to those staying in the cottage, and have respect for privacy as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the great stay! The cottage was nice and cozy. Our children enjoyed the swim in the pool! Fantastic views, sunrise was spectacular even in the rain! Beautiful water fall, such a treat to see. Kids liked seeing all of the animals. Thank you. Leina and Keith

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin? This is truly a very special place. My only regret is that I didn't book this cottage for longer! You are on acres of green property here, with 12 horses, a gorgeous infinity pool, ocean views and your very own private waterfall! The cottage is tiny but exactly what we needed for our family of 4. Every detail is perfect, and I especially loved the beautiful china dishes and other special touches. My kids adored the dogs and the pool and we even got to take an impromptu horseback riding lesson with Pudding. That was the highlight of my son's life, I think. He hasn't stopped talking about it. We made the short hike down to the waterfall twice and my kids also loved this!

This is an amazing area and we will definitely be back. We planned our trip to stay in Kona for most of our trip with only 2 nights here - we will make it a longer stay next time. Thank you so much for the use of your home!!

A slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Pu'u Moi Country Cottage was a lovely stay. On the property of a horse ranch, it was warm, cozy, with a beautiful view of the ocean. The cottage was very clean and well-maintained. The owner's dogs made themselves right at home with us. Located about 6 miles north of Hilo, it was the perfect distance from town and allowed us to explore the Big Island. I hope we can return in the future!

What a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We feel very fortunate to ave found this little slice of heaven! Keala and Steve have done an amazing job of turning this cute cabin into a real winner. Nicely furnished with everything you might need

-- especially liked the dishes, artwork, orchids, the rocking chair and swing on the porch and a washer and dryer with detergent furnished!! The farm animals were an added bonus as were the cute dogs who like to visit. Would stay here again if we make it back to the Big Island!

wonderful, relaxing, beautiful and quiet environment

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! The cottage is located on the farm property with a verdant surrounding and a view of the ocean. Watch the sunrise over the ocean! The cottage is well equipped with everything you need for your stay. It is a beautiful little cottage. Nights were coolish which made for great sleeping. Be sure to take a hike on the property as there are fruit orchards, and a beautiful, private waterfall. Would certainly choose this place again. Close to Hilo, but away from noise and traffic. Only sounds are those of the animals.

Amazing! If you're in Hilo, stay here.

  • 5 of 5

Owners are great people and conscientious of their home and property. Cute cottage situated on top of the hill overlooking the ocean. Located on a farm with all the wonderful animals which was great for our family. Only negative is the property is impossible to find, especially after dark. Informed owners they need to put a sign or address on the main road, another half-way up the hill to their property and another where you turn to their gate. Otherwise, once you get there enjoy.

Cozy home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the guest cottage. The owners were very helpful, accommodating, and responsive from the beginning. The grounds are beautiful and pastoral - we woke up one morning to see a horse looking in our window! The little dogs are also a delight, and we enjoyed visiting with them when sitting on the lanai.

The cottage itself is clean, cozy, and well-appointed. It is also convenient to Hilo town, and to attractions such as the Volcano National Park, and to the lava viewing area in Kalapana.

We will definitely stay here again when we come back to the Big Island!
