Utter privacy: between you and the nearest road is a eucalyptus forest.

1 full bathroom plus 1 half-bath.
Fully equipped kitchen.
East Hawaii, the Hilo side, is the lush beautiful side of the Big Island. And the Creekside Cottage is perfectly located for the most convenient access to all the spectacular sights and adventures Hawaii is famous for. (The west or Kona side is barren desert, and a 2+ hour drive to any of the natural wonders.) All the waterfalls and river canyons the Big Island has to offer, are located along the Hamakua Coast, and the Creekside Cottage is in the midst of them - nestled in a beautiful river valley in the Hamakua Coast district. Stunning 400-ft Akaka Falls is located in the next river valley up the coast, 5 miles away. World-famous Waipio Falls, with a double 1,000-ft waterfall, is a little farther up the coast to the north. The most pristine snorkeling reefs and tide pools in the Pacific ocean are close by, on the easternmost point of the island. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park - with the active volcano, fascinating lava tubes, and hundreds of miles of hiking trails - is less than an hour to the south. (If you were to stay on the other side of the island, in touristy Kona, you'd have to drive more than 2 hours to get to the Volcanoes Nat'l Park.)
Within 15 minutes of the Creekside Cottage are 3 beautiful botanical gardens and 2 thrilling zip lines. The owners have zip-lined in numerous parts of the world, including in Costa Rica where zip-lining was first invented, and we can testify that the zip line at Akaka Falls is one of the most thrilling in the world.

About the owner: We are 67 and 71, and this is intended to be our retirement home. Until then we're making it available for others to enjoy. Most of the time we live in the Sandia Mountains in New Mexico, and we spend as much time as possible in Hawaii. Our wonderful Hawaiian property manager Kealani lives near the Cottage - she will be the one to greet you when you arrive and make sure you have everything you need to feel at home during your stay. Tom is a lawyer and law professor specializing in the needs of Native Americans and indigenous peoples. Marcy is a retired psychotherapist and a musician/songwriter and church music director. We're active outdoor adventurers and love wilderness backpacking. Though the rental income on the Hawaii property doesn't cover all the expenses on it, it helps a lot - so we thank you for renting it and helping us make our retirement dream come true!
Why the Owner Chose Pepeekeo, HI, USA:
We've been visiting Hawaii 2 or 3 times a year for many years. We love all the islands, but the Big Island is our favorite because it provides so much variety - from high mountain tops to snorkel reefs, to wilderness hikes, to the active volcano. On every vacation, we always spent a couple of days looking at real estate, until our broker was like family. When we first saw this property in Dec 2010, we were riveted by its beauty. When we stood gazing at the lush green valley and sparkling ocean, we both knew this was the place we'd been searching for.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Having spent most of our lives in the southwestern desert, to have two streams and our own private waterfall is nothing short of heaven. And where else can we pick our own oranges, papayas, bananas, pineapples avocados to complement every meal? The serenity and peace, the openness of the landscape, the out-in-the-country feeling, are soothing to the heart and soul. What's really unique about this property is it's ideal location. Even though it's only 15 or 20 minutes from downtown Hilo with all all the shops and restaurants and medical facilities, when you're at the Creekside Cottage you feel completely immersed in nature and beauty. And even though it's secluded, there's a wonderful spacious feeling to the wide open green valley.
