Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We sailed to Hawaii from the South Pacific in 1991 and the Island welcomed us so much that we are still here today! We love to travel and explore new places preferably from a nice , home-like base. We used our travel experiences to create a welcoming home away from home for you. We are woodworkers by trade and have included our expertise as well as our love for detail and beauty into our properties. We love local food and cooking so our kitchen is well equipped. We support sustainability- we have solar power ( with electric back up), we compost and recycle, we have herbs, nuts and fruit in out garden that we are happy to share with you. We both meditate and Kerstin practices yoga. When we are on island we are happy to share our Yoga and meditation shala with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Hawi, HI, USA:
We got word about this Macadamia orchard from friends who live next door while we were traveling. Since we loved layed-back North Kohala and had lived and fallen in love with Hawi Town already we made an offer sight unseen and proceeded to design and build our little piece of paradise that we now share with travelers.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We offer you a unique, beautiful, safe and welcoming place to relax. This is not just a vacation rental, this is a home!
