Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
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!

Fun-loving and a keen traveler, I am into meeting new people, learning new culture, and relish in tasting healthy good food! So, yes, I'm a foodie too! I'm happy to recommend my favorite local restaurants serving healthy and tasty food and where I usually go for my groceries. Lived in Hawaii for more than 30 years and this has become my home. We take pride in offering a clean and comfortable home-away-from home environment for our guests, much like what we look for when we travel.
Why Jasmine chose Island of Hawaiʻi
Needing more space that offers tranquility, natural beauty and is within a short drive to Hilo for my family, we were delighted to have discovered this location. And the bonus is, it comes with great views of the Pacific Ocean, the top of Maunakea and on clear nights, it is SIMPLY AWESOME to see the amazing night skies!!!! The breeze is also great! At night, the cool mountain breeze is such a blessing for a good night's sleep.
What makes this Cottage unique
In addition to the views and peaceful surroundings, this place also offers lots of space to either run or walk. And one of the most appealing and unique benefits is listening to the sweet, therapeutic and wonderfully musical sounds emanating from the various birds! Sighting the different birds is also quite an experience!

The property is so amazing! Very Beautiful & quiet! If you’re looking for privacy this is the place!
My husband & I were looking for something quiet, private & with a good view! The sun rises and sun sets were so beautiful and amazing! During the day you listen to the birds and at night you can hear the frogs. This Cottage was perfect & just what we were looking for! Jasmine was so helpful anytime we needed to know where to eat, shop or directions in how to get to where we were going. Jasmine & Mike were so gracious & welcoming. They spent time answering our questions about the best places to go while we were there. The Cottage is very private and it felt like coming home everyday after exploring the island. I only wish we would have had more time to spend at this Cottage. Next time we visit the Big Island we will definitely stay at this Cottage for at least one full week or more!! Jasmine and Mike thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of paradise with us! Mahalo!
Quiet cottage outside Hilo Hawaii
Nice and private location just outside of Hilo . Distant views of ocean but no close access ! Great sunrises and peace and quiet ! It is connected to the owners residence but they respect your privacy! They do need some new pillows as they were very flat and not comfy !! They provide beach tiwels if needed and have a washer and dryer for your use ! I would stay here again ! Deposit refunded promptly as well ! Nice outside porch and a charcoal grill to use as well ! We saw wild pigs next door and enjoyed the quiet area ! Thanks Jasmine for your hospitality !
Serene and beautiful
This is a wonderful place to stay. It is in a peaceful and beautiful location, easy to get to from Hilo. As first timers to the Big Island, we had a lot of questions. Thank you Jasmine for being so patient in answering all my emails. I really appreciated your prompt responses. We loved staying here and hope we can come back again. Thank you for your hospitality!
Sweet cottage by the sea
Jasmine was a wonderful hosting. Made us feel so welcomed. The cottage is very comfortable and close to many attractions my. Very quiet as we like it! Lovely grounds!
Beautiful Pepeekeo Cottage by the sea
From the warm and gracious hosts, Jasmine & Mike, to the gorgeous moonlit views of the ocean - this must be paradise. The cottage is immaculately clean with a well supplied kitchen. Our host even brought us a lovely New Years eve gift. We would return at the drop of a hat! Thank you Jasmine & Mike for a truly lovely week.
THE DRY SPOT IN ALL THE RAIN
The Cottage by the Sea is a wonderful retreat. We were only there for two nights so we didn't make use of all of the amenities but it was a great place to return to after driving around the island seeing as much as we could with all of the rain. For three adults it had plenty of room and was a much better solution to a double hotel room or two hotel rooms. It was wonderfully clean bright and comfortable. We were not able to meet our hosts until we were actually driving out the drive way due to their work and our travels. We wish we had been able to visit more. If ever we go back to the Big island we will try to stay here again.
Situated not far from Hilo, the growing town of Pepeekeo is one of former sugar plantation towns along the Hamakua Coast which features awesome views of the pristine blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. This is a great location to explore the history of Hawaii, taste the wonders of tropical fruits, and indulge yourselves in various exciting outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, canoe paddling, snorkeling and surfing. A short drive will bring you and your family to many 'must go to' visitor sites such as the Volcano National Park, the black sand beach, the Imiloa Astronomy Center (which has a great planetarium and lots of interactive devices to engage both adults and children), the Pacific Tsunami Museum, Hilo Famer's Market, Akaka Falls, Botanical Gardens and a whole lot more! Cottage is also near other parks, shopping mall, major grocery stores, theatres, banks, restaurants, churches and golf courses. All of our guests have been pleased with their stay here. Other Activities: canoe paddling, golfing, fishing, jogging, biking
