About the property

Studio Cottage with views of Maui over rolling hills.

This charming cottage is located 2.5 miles above Hawi town. Perfect if you want to getaway.

Wake up to a beautiful rural Kohala morning with a cup of your favorite kona coffee as you watch the Island of Maui in the distance. The views are breathtaking, and the countryside is green and fragrant with Hawaiian tropical flowers. If you want to leave your hideaway retreat you can go down to historic Hawi town where you can view local artists' creations in galleries, or just sit in the cafe and watch how the locals live. You won't want to miss our lively Saturday morning farmers market under the banyan tree in the center of town. Visit the neighboring town of Kapaau to see the King Kamehameha statue. Swim and snorkel at one of the nearby beaches. You can enjoy lovely walks right outside the cottage on quiet country roads or hike down historic Pololu valley and walk on the black sand beach. Relax in the evening with a refreshing drink while watching the ocean from a screened in lanai.

Located at the perfect elevation to be cool at night and warm during the day.

Perfect quiet and relaxing stay!

  • 4 of 5

Everything at this farm cottage was lovely. We are glad we decided to try out staying in the Hawi area, it was a nice area to explore and the property was lovely. Spacious but cozy, and appointed with everything we could need. Loved the fresh fruit provided and enjoyed some fresh tangelos from the tree! We had some trouble finding the place at first based on the step by step directions from the manager, but just used the address and GPS instead which made it a breeze.

Glad we got to meet the friendly resident dog he was great!

Lovely place with unexpected extras

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a week to enjoy the north and west of the island, after a previous week at Hilo. A very nice bright, airy apartment with a lovely view of the distant ocean from the screen porch/dining room. Our Australian-born hosts surprised us with home-baked bread and eggs from the resident chickens, and the option of picking oranges and lemons from their trees. We felt we were vacationing with old friends. I would certainly return here if we should need a future break from the North American winter.

Lovely Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as was advertised. Remote, quiet and everything guests need to enjoy their stay on the Big Island. Mike and Helen were gracious hosts who gifted us with their fruit and homemade bread, and shared their pets, "the girls" and lovely dog Mirrhi. Well stocked kitchen for cooking and washer and dryer. The property is not in the tourist area so it felt very relaxing after a busy day sightseeing the Big Island. Olivia, the property manager was also very helpful. We were able to communicate with her when we had a minor problem. Thank You Mike, Helen and Olivia.

Peaceful, beautiful setting with easy access to towns and beaches

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming little cottage, well appointed with all amenities just up country from Hawi. Location allows easy access to towns and restaurants within half hour’s drive. We spent time exploring the North Kohala shore, much less visited than near the resorts, and we saw some beautiful sunsets and whales off shore. Close enough to the great Kohala beaches to pack a lunch and spend the day! Beautiful walking up the road as well. Hosts very personable and accommodating. Easy to arrange check in and check out with Olivia. A place we would definitely stay again!

sweet retreat

  • 5 of 5

What welcoming hosts to a cozy private relaxing getaway. Was my first time in Hawi, and hopefully not my last. Loved sitting on the screened in lanai with nothing but greenery and sky to view. Quiet and conveniently located to all I wanted to explore. Loved the town, and was a quick ride to the Kohala coast for sun and surf.
