Overview

About the property

2 bedroom/1 bath cottage, private yet centrally located in the Puna District

My two bedroom cottage is nestled in the rain forest 30 minutes south of Hilo. It’s private and secluded yet centrally located for all that the Puna district has to offer.

The ¼ acre property is surrounded by large Eucalyptus, Ohia and Avocado trees. Nestled amongst those are a large variety of plants and fruits including: bananas, pineapples, pomelos, tangerines and many tropical flowers.

The cottage comfortably sleeps 2-4 people and has two bedrooms. The front bedroom is off the kitchen, has a full sized bed, a private sliding glass door to the front lanai and direct access to the bathroom. There is a folding screen that can be used for extra privacy from the rest of the house. The back bedroom is entered through the french doors, has a queen sized bed, and private access to the backyard.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, stove, microwave, dishes, all cooking dishes and utensils as well as some of my favorite cookbooks. I have a satellite TV, DVDs, CDs, books and internet for your at home entertainment. There is a boogie board and snorkel gear as well as beach towels for your outdoor adventures.

Enjoy day outings to Warm Ponds, Tide Pools, Volcano National Park and numerous farmers markets, then come home to your tropical getaway and fall asleep to the lulling songs of the coqui frogs.

About Emily Carr

I'm Emily. I instantly fell in love with the island the first time I was here and left with one goal in mind, to find that perfect piece of property and move as soon as possible. Only several months later did i find Hibiscus Cottage and couldn't believe how lucky I was. I hope to someday move here, in the meantime I want to share my little slice of heaven with you. I live in Boulder City Nevada just outside of Las Vegas and am a Stage Manager at Cirque du Soleil.

I hope you enjoy the cottage as much as I do.

Emily Carr purchased this house in 2013

A jewel of a property gleaming clean.

  • 5 of 5

Such pretty surroundings good wifi. Jungle sounds ok with Windows shut and fans on. Could use lightweight blankets. I enjoyed it. Close to volcano and botanical gardens. It was cold at volcano. Close in to main road yet seems very isolated with good alarm system. Good value.

This property exceeded my expectations and was perfect for our family of four.

  • 5 of 5

We loved that it was plenty roomy for my husband and I as well as our two young children. The fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer were huge plusses for us as well. Emily emailed us ahead a time and made herself available if we had any questions. Overall a great property for vacationing on the Big Island.

Very quaint and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cottage, very clean and out of the way of tourist traps. Allows you to experience Hawaii. It had everything we needed and more, and we were close to the sites at volcano national park and Hilo. We could not get direct tv to work and wifi was hit and miss but I was on vacation! Make sure you follow Emily directions because address not on gps, hers are spot on. Mahalo Emily for wonderful place!

Clean and tidy inside

  • 4 of 5

Great location for access to Volcano National Park. Will need a car to get there. We had a great time. Loved the area, very quiet country area.

Just what we needed. The only thing is the Wifi was so slow that it took ages to load up a page on my laptop. Suggest you do all your research before if you stay there...

Cozy and Peaceful

Great cottage for my husband and I during our 10-day stay. Having the security system made us feel better leaving our stuff there when we're gone. Quiet, nice neighborhood and has everything you need!
