About the property

One Bedroom With Loft And 2 Bathrooms, Huge Lanai With 180 Views Of The Ocean

This romantic seaside cottage will steal your heart. Positioned in the small village of Milolii, (the LAST fishing village in Hawaii) in Captain Cook on TheBig Island.

Boasting superior views of the sea just a stones throw away from the ocean. This cottage sits on a 1/3 of an acre filled will lush tropical vegitation. There are 4 different types of mature mango trees, pineapples, bananas, dragon fruit, lemon, lime, orange, as well as varied fragrant plumeria to list just some of the lush landscaping for year round enjoyment. Multiple seating, lounging and amenities inside and out.

Take a short walk from the property to Da' Rock where you can find easy access to some of the best snorkeling on the island. Swimming with wild happy spinner dolphins from Da' Rock and other beaches located in close proximity to "POI*13", including a short hike to the sucluded Honomalino beach- make this remote location a special one of a kind Hawaii experience.

The closest black sand beach is just a 30 min hike. You will often find this "billionairs beach" with no one there. AMAZING!!!

You can stay in hotel filled spaces, go out to eat for each meal and hope to get a vacant spot on the beach for your vacation, or you can enjoy an entire home, views of the water from all over the house, private gardens, hammocks, gas BBQ, snorkel gear, coolers beach towels, movies, drinking water in a chilled cooler, even surf boards for use. The privacy of an entire home often less expensive per night, and more luxurious than a one room hotel with double beds!

If you want to experience Hawaii in an unpackaged way with MORE of the home benefits than are available with hotel accommodations, this place may just be for you!

The kitchen is fully equipped for even holiday style cooking including but not limited to specialty items like: vitamix, crockpot, baking dishes, rice maker, air popcorn maker, coffee grinder (in case you pick up some local coffee), coffee maker as well as french press, mixer and bowels, toaster, teapot and water cooler with instant hot water as well.

*We even provide fresh drinking water and reusable travel water jugs!

Feel like you're at home in a friends place on the beach, or you've located the most romantic, well planned out sanctuary on the Big Islands!

A great home base for exploration of the south side of the island. Sights like, Green Sand beach, Punaluu beach, Southpoint, Hookena, Oceanview Saturday swap meet, possibly a trip into Naalehu to see the forestlike trees, grab the best malasada at the famous Punaluu bakery and shop at the Wednesday farmers market downtown.

Not a place limited to showers and sleeping like a hotel, feel like you're a part of Hawaii.

Please note: the night life in Milolii is the amazing starry nights without light/sound polution. If you are looking for entertainment other than the show nature is putting on this location may be too remote for you.

Remember even though it's an island there is more diversity, varied environments and amazing things to see that it's nearly impossible to get to it all.

Drive around, enjoy the changing views, experience the aloha that makes this island so magic!

Amazing and Phenomenal Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled quite a bit and run my own VRBO, and this home is equipped with everything you could imagine and is absolutely meticulously kept and has a phenomenal view of the ocean!!!! It is in a quiet quaint little neighborhood. If you want a resort style busy vacation place, this is not it. If you want tranquility and one of the most cozy and comfortable homes that you can imagine-this IS your place. The diving is absolutely unbelievable as well!!! I highly recommend it needless to say and have already scheduled my return!!!

This place is awesome. It's a bit of a ways from conveniences, but if you want to get away from the touristy stuff, this is a great place. The cottage has a good ocean view and the neighborhood is quiet. The cottage is clean and well-equipped. The owners have stocked a few extra things since you are a bit of a ways from town: bottled water, extra toiletries, a few pantry staples, and so on. The owners reply quickly to any contact in case you have questions or need help. My only regret is that we did not stay longer!

This place is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We only had the chance to stay here one night on a week long stay on the Big Island. It was, by far, the best place we stayed! It truly feels like home away from home. Tim and Jenn have done an amazing job keeping it simple and making it feel comfortable to use the house as if it was your own. Not to mention that they themselves are welcoming in a way that makes you feel like you are family. Wish we could move there to stay forever!!


-beautiful views

-quiet neighborhood

-so close to the ocean you can hear the shore break all night

-great hosts


-the road to it? (Not really a con, the stay makes the trip down the hill worth every minute)

If it’s low key you are looking for in your stay, this is the place!!
