About Mary Rose Love
Semi-retired, Marylove is a vital, fun loving, respectful Tutu (grandma) who loves her life in Hawaii and her ohana (family). Marylove is an RN as well as an interpreter for American Sign Language, working throughout all the Hawaiian islands. Life is sweet here in the Kalapana area of Big Island, which is a place of amazing serenity and beauty. I am so happy to share a slice of it while you visit!
Mary Rose Love purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Mary Rose Love chose Pahoa
I love to share this amazing area with visitors from all over the world. I am perfectly situated in a safe, beautiful neighborhood not far from the breathtaking coastline of the famous Red Road. Why rent this property? Because the host is awesome, haha!

Very cute place to stay on the East side of Big Island!
This cottage is located at the back of the main house, with access to a private, covered lanai and a beautiful backyard that has a combination of hammock, swing, and patio furniture. The cottage itself is tastefully decorated with local art, furniture & a ukelele! It's also quite spacious with lots of room for luggage, etc. Though there was no A/C, airing out the place by opening all windows/doors was sufficient to cool it down for sleeping (we travelled in early Jan.). Mary Love was thoughtful enough to provide earplugs as coqui frog (and roosters) abatement - they were a godsend for our 1st night! Overall, a cute place to stay on the East side of Big Island!
It was lovely to host you! There is a bedroom AC portable unit in the closet, but it’s rarely needed, except in the middle of the summer. I’m glad you were comfortable and content! Please return in the future - it was great to have you!
Quiet and secluded get away
Loved our stay!
Loved having you!
Loved this quiet little place! Well furnished, with all the kitchen necessities! Very Zen and comfy. You get your very own patio/garden, including a hammock, double swinging chair, and a hanging basket chair (my favorite)! Thanks, Mary Love
Note: Oops! Please ignore note about Kalaheo Cafe! That was on Kauai! BUT, we did love Heavenly Hawaiian Coffee, a small plantation in Kona!
Wonderful to host you! Mahalo ~ Marylove and Denn
A great cottage that was perfect for our stay.
We would recommend this cottage for anyone who is interested in seeing the volcano and this area of Hawaii. Marylove is a wonderful host and very accommodating. She will do all she can to make your stay pleasant. Thank you Mary for helping us out.
Great to host you! Much aloha!
This little cottage has everything you could want and need. It feels immediately comfortable and cozy. I booked this for a mother/daughter trip. We had privacy, and yet with all the thoughtful details left by Marylove, I felt well taken care of. I chose this place partly because other reviewers stressed it's cleanliness. Yes, it is clean and I appreciated that but it's so much more! It's perfect.
Quaint, eclectic spot near lava walk
The space is in a cute neighborhood with beautiful gardens. When we arrived, Mary Love had the place set with Hawaiian music playing and mood lighting complete with crystals!
Comfortable couch and daybed to snuggle up on while watching digital cable on rainy days/nights. The outdoor living area is fun to sit in and read or work, with hanging chairs and a hammock. There is an outdoor washing machine and a place to line dry your items, just watch for impending rain, and the humidity will cause your stuff to take longer to dry. Also, be very alert driving around the neighborhood for stoned beach-goers, there are no sidewalks;)
Mary Love’s space was a very clean, cozy, and well-appointed guesthouse attached to her main house, appropriate for 1-2 guests. She is a lovely hostess.
It was lovely to host you! Hope you can return someday for a longer visit!
