Property description

Clean, comfortable and family oriented cottage on the Big Island's Hamakua Coast in Pepeekeo. Built with love, pride and Aloha, this cottage is set in a private, peaceful, serene and airy environment. Fully equipped kitchen with custom kitchen and bath cabinets, dining and living area and outdoor patio makes for a great place to relax and enjoy the pleasures of your stay in Hawaii. Enjoy views of the blue ocean and majestic mountain top of Mauna Kea by day and amazing stars and, at times, breathtaking full moon and moon lit ocean by night. Short walk to the coastline, biking and nature walks abound. There's a stream adjacent to our property with a neat swimming spot. When the timing is right, you'd be treated to the tastiest bananas you've ever eaten! Truly! If you have kids, there's plenty of yard space for them to run, play catch or enjoy a family outdoor game of frisbee. A short 5-minute drive will take you to the cute town of Honomu, enroute to famous Akaka Falls. If you want to enjoy breakfast out, there's 100% Hawaiian grown coffee and a wide selection of healthy yet tasty breakfast menu items at Shark's in Honomu, my favorite breakfast place!

Just 10 miles north of Hilo, our cottage is close to major attractions in Hilo and allows for short drives to other popular sites such as Volcano National Park, Botanical Gardens and surfing spots. Location also makes for easy day trips to attractions on the north and west side of the Big Island, such as Waipio Valley, Hapuna Beach and the towns of Honokaa, Waimea and Kailua-Kona. Pack a picnic with the coolers supplied in the cottage. When you're done exploring and just want to relax, simply pull up the patio chairs and table, open a bottle of cold beer or have a glass of wine and set your eyes on the stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. To top it off, why not have a barbecue? Just get your favorite beef, chicken or fish...and all the fixings and you'd be on your way to a lovely, delicious and relaxing evening in paradise!

Check in time is 3pm. We'd be happy to accommodate early check in if possible.
Check out time is 11am. Again, we'd be happy to provide late check out if no guests are checking in that same day. We know planning a vacation is exciting and finding the best place to stay is important. It is our goal to help you and your family enjoy your time here by providing a nice place for your stay. Our cottage is ideally set up for just the 2 of you or you and your family of 4, wanting to explore the many outdoor sites and activities or simply kick back, relax and soak in the peaceful quietness of the surroundings.

Aloha and Welcome!
