The Rainbow Eucalyptus tree may be one of the most stunning trees you'll ever see - and you can gaze at this beauty in a gorgeous jungle setting from your lanai at the Rainbow Cottage. Currently we have excellent lava flows visible a short drive from the cottage. There are two bedrooms each with queen sized beds, a living room, dining room, bath, lanai, carport, and washer dryer on the property. Your host also lives on the acre in a separate house. There are many special features to this sweet small house including custom tile work, Mexican Saltillo and Travertine mosaic throughout, concrete countertops, original artwork, a fully equipped kitchen (a variety of coffee makers, bakeware, cookware, juicer, water purifier, blender, crockpot, etc), eco-friendly amenities such as rain catchment with UV filter and solar hot water, a lanai with hammock, washer/dryer, covered carport, and the property is also hosted by friendly and curious animals. Yours are welcome here too!
Conveniently located in Leilani Estates, just outside of Pahoa Village, this is a great anchor point to explore the Lower Puna District, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hilo and the Hamakua Coastline. A short 10-20 minute drive away you'll find the gorgeous Puna Coastline with volcanically heated ocean swimming pools (Ahalanui Park), incredible snorkeling and swimming in Kapoho, and surfing and swimming at Pohoiki. Pahoa is a funky off-beat small town 10 minutes away with several great dining spots including Thai, Mexican, American-Pacific Fusion, and a Bakery/Cafe. Pahoa additionally provides basic amenities including a Natural Food store, a regular grocery, banks, Post Office, Police and Fire Stations. Other attractions to the Lower Puna area include the variety of open air markets that occur several times a week that have live musical entertainment, food booths, crafts, fresh local and organic produce, plus a whole lot more. The area also offers many healing arts including Ecstatic Dance at Kalani Honua Eco resort, a variety of yoga classes and skilled acupuncturists, massage therapist, naturopathic physicians, and other healers all of which you host can connect you with. Your host incidentally is a Personal Chef who specializes in natural foods, so please feel free to inquire about those services which are available.
John and Irene are the ideal people to have at your vacation rental. They were communicative, clean and courteous. At one point they broke the ceramic compost bin and ordered a replacement before I even knew it happened. The house was in fantastic shape when they left and I'm happy they now live on island :)
A delightful spot on the Hilo side.... close to everything - Pahoa, oceanside parks, volcanic lava flows. Private garden is very special - host is wonderful!
This little place was perfect for our week exploring the Hilo side of the Big Island. Easy to find and the owner, Sofia,was gracious and not at all intrusive. The house was clean, cozy, perfect for 3 or 4; and it was great having laundry on site. We'll definitely consider staying here again! Mahalo!
The house was very nice and as described. I would recommend this property for someone who wants to get away from the city. The garden was beautiful. Although we did not stay the entire week due to the constant rain, limited cell phone service and no television we did enjoy our stay.
We stayed at Rainbow Cottage for 5 weeks with our 2 dogs and Sophia made us feel so welcome. Comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen; great location for visiting warm pond, snorkeling or dinner in Pahoa! Her dogs & kitty were so very sweet and put up with our dogs like gracious hosts. Would definitely recommend Rainbow Cottage for a relaxing vacation!
