The Palms Cottage is a spacious and airy 600 square foot stand-alone studio cottage. It has an open floor plan with tropical island décor throughout. The rattan and bamboo furnishings, warm wood, and Hawaiian print fabrics offer a true taste of island living.
The cottage provides tropical flowers, a hand towel, paper towels, dish soap and a new sponge in the kitchen. Freshly laundered linens on the beds. Clean bath towels, wash cloths, a bath mat and hand soap in the bathroom. As well as beach towels and a day cooler with blue ice for your outings.
The Palms Cottage was named after the beautifully hand sculpted palm tree bas-relief that decorates the wall of the studio. The cottage sleeps four guests in two very comfortable queen beds. The beds are topped with Tommy Bahama designer quilts and are separated by a nightstand with two reading lamps. There is a large hand-tufted tropical rug at the foot, and a rich wicker armoire that houses the 30” flat-screen/DVD player with basic satellite TV on the far wall. With padded benches, a wicker lounge chair, bamboo shelving, and a small closet, there is plenty of space to unpack and relax.
The kitchen features a full size refrigerator, double sink, four-burner gas cook-top, and is complete with pots/pans, dishware, and cutlery. It has everything you need to prepare a nice meal in your hale (home) away from home, including an outdoor BBQ for your grilling pleasure.
The private bathroom has a shower, toilet, pedestal sink and colorful hand-carved Bali mirror.
French doors open up to the breezy screened lanai (sunroom) with panoramic garden views. You can hear the waves in the distance as you relax on the 8’ tropical print couch reading your favorite book. The lovely wicker dining set is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your coffee in the morning, and a nice meal with a glass of wine after an adventure filled day.
Our lovely Palms Cottage is fully solar powered and built to peacefully co-exist with its natural surroundings.
Offstreet parking and private cottage.
INTERACTION WITH GUESTS
We want you to have the best experience possible. We enjoy meeting our guests and make it a point to introduce ourselves early in your visit, then we leave the amount of interaction up to you. We are available for local recommendations or any other needs you might have during your stay. Our residence is on the property, distanced and obscured by tropical gardens and large fruit trees.
Our 6 acre property is secluded, peaceful, and relaxing. Situated on the pristine Kalapana coastline between Kehena and the Kapoho, removed from the hussle of tourism, it truly feels like untouched paradise. It is an idyllic getaway for honeymooners and adventurers alike.
We recommend taking a stroll to the beautiful coastal bay across the street. Kalani Oceanside Retreat is 1/3 mile, and Kehena Black Sand Beach is 1 mile. A short drive in either direction will take you to thermal ponds at Ahalanui Park and Isaac Hale Park, where you can soak the day away, the Kapoho Tidepools, where you will find the best snorkeling on the island, and new black sand beaches in Kalapana where you can explore the new volcanic coastline.
Come for the adventure, stay for a relaxing get away from it all!
Public transportation is limited on the Big Island. We highly recommend renting a car so you can fully explore all that the island has to offer.
