Just 20 miles from historic Hilo, on the picturesque Hamakua Coast, between Honomu and Laupahoehoe, 21 acres of rural refuge overlooking the blue Pacific in tiny Ninole. Easy drive from either airport and convenient home base for all your Hawaii Island activities. See the sun rise where morning sky meets the expanse of the azure sea or watch the clouds turn pink as it settles behind the mountains for the evening.
Property is totally off-grid. Electricity provided by solar photovoltaic arrays with genset backup.
Multi-filtered rainwater systems for near pure water enjoyment. Cell only phone service to limit outside intrusion. Satellite TV and Radio broadband WiFi to let the outside world in at your discretion.

Perched near the top of 21 pastoral acres on the slope of Mauna Kea with breathtaking 180 degree view of the blue Pacific and Hamakua Coast. Designed to be comfortable for the solitary traveler or couple; young or not so young.
Relax in the roomy, 640 sf comfort of your private cabin. Full private bath down, half bath up. TV with DISH HD Network access. Broadband WiFI access for your internet needs. Kitchenette has own gas stove, fridge, microwave, dishes and utensils plus convenient access to gas grill just outside the door. Whether you enjoy just a few nights or an extended stay, you’ll enjoy your Hawaiian experience.

Need to know:
We are located in a rural, agricultural area, please be aware what that may offer. Adjoining properties host grazing cattle. Feral pigs are abundant and can be vocal. Chickens, roosters, ducks, geese, and others contribute to the polyphony.

Pets: Guests are requested to not bring pets with them, (we respectfully ask you coordinate PRIOR to booking if you desire to bring a pet/service animal) but we are owned by THREE awesome boxers. While they have freedom to roam, we prefer they not be invited into guest quarters. Most likely, they’ll look for you in the morning and monitor your safety. Because of them, we ask you to double check that the gates are closed when entering or exiting the property.

Smoking: We are serious about being a non smoking property. That starts at the county road as you turn onto our drive. Of course, most rental cars are also non smoking so that’s a help. We would sincerely ask that if this presents a problem that you find a place you can more fully enjoy. Violators will be asked to leave - immediately, and billed accordingly if room needs additional cleaning.

Pool: The pool is available to suite guests only and has 2 important rules that have SAFETY in common.
Rule 1: Any person under 18 years of age must be actively supervised by their parent - NO EXCEPTION.
Rule 2: Glass objects not allowed within 10 feet of pool. Broken glass can cause severe personal injury and damage to pool itself.

Weather: Big Island Hawaii boasts 11 of the 13 climate zones in the world, each with unique ecosystems and weather characteristics. Elevation, pressure variations, rainfall, wind and topography combine to create distinctive microclimates within those climate zones. Climates you may encounter include the humid tropical zones, from sea level to 450 feet, the arid and semi-arid zones, the temperate zones, and the Alpine zones, chilly areas above 10,500 feet.This is not the Hawaii of Waikiki postcards. Rain is what keeps us lush and green. Our normal year rainfall is 120-140 inches. While mostly at night, this changes during the year. Our local temps range from a low of 58 to a high of 82. We have our own Davis weather station on site and accessible via web or iphone app for current conditions. For anyone interested in historical data regarding temperature, rainfall etc, please visit Weather Underground Link station KHININOL2

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We come from a military background and large families. We have been blessed to travel and enjoy the world. David was stationed in Hawaii in 70's-80's. Sophie first visited in 1989. David always wanted to return to Hawaii but as happens, life kinda got in the way until a significant life event in the late 90's, then returning to Hawaii became our goal. For those that know, Hawaii lives in your heart. We just didn't move here, we came home.

Why the Owner Chose Hakalau, HI, USA:
This is the home in our hearts. Coming from large families and from the East Coast, you know you want family and friend to be able to come and visit - and you want that visit to be special. So we designed the cottage to be cozy and special. We lived here while building the main house. The Cottage offers a vacation experience, completely self contained. Close enough to be part of the family, yet private enough to getaway, while enjoying the amenities of a private resort. Some say our house is like a private resort. Living here does feel like living at a private resort. We love it!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Totally off grid Solar electric Peaceful relaxation while taking in gorgeous 180° panoramic view of the Pacific. Watch the whales when in season. Welcome to paradise.
