About the Property
For couples seeking intimacy seclusion, no other homes, garden of Eden Volcano
There should be a six star review category. Hale Aloha Aina exceeded our expectations in every way. What a gem of a property. First, the cottage is absolutely beautiful, warm and inviting. When we stepped into the house we instantly felt like we belonged here. The fragrant smell of fresh ginger blooms and plumeria was romantic and played on all of our senses. We couldn't wait to start exploring the property. What fun to find such a great variety of fruit trees and exotic plants. Bananas, limes, avocados, pineapples and guavas to name a few. This is a virtual garden of Eden. No matter how much the rest of the island beckoned to us, (and it did) we always looked forward to coming home to Hale Aloha Aina for peace and relaxation.
~ If you are seeking tranquility and seclusion Wood Valley is the place for you! ~
Hale Aloha Aina (House of the Loving Land) is a romantic Hawaiian vacation cottage nestled on eight acres of lush tropical flora. No other homes or people live on this property, giving you the ultimate in privacy and seclusion. Truly the perfect honeymoon getaway or artist retreat for nature enthusiasts seeking a remote destination that inspires intimacy and adventure. Wood Valley is a hidden treasure on the southeast side of Hawaii offering upcountry living in an agricultural community. It is five miles from the town of Pahala which offers a hospital, drug store, gas station, library, community swim pool, market and Coffee Mill. At 2500 elevation, this mountain cabin offers a comfortable climate with warm sunny days and cool evening nights for a great night sleep. Besides the low humidity, there are very few pecky bugs... no torpedo cockroaches or swarming mosquitoes. As of 2016 the coqui frogs have migrated to the gulches of closer to the temple but you can't hear them from the cottage. It is still one of the last truly peaceful areas on this side of the island.
You will love it so much that you will want to keep it a secret, but be so rejuvenated that you will have to tell everyone!
~ Last minute and extended stay discounts. 10% Military and Kama'aina discount. Guests staying one week or longer receive one bag of Kau Honu Java coffee grown right across the road from the Hale. Best coffee you will ever taste! A fresh tropical floral arrangement will greet you when you arrive at the Hale.

This vacation home is totally self-sufficient...Off the beaten path and off the Grid. Hale Aloha Aina is an ambassador for green living educating our guests on how simple it is to live off the grid using solar and propane. Solar runs the electrical appliances such as the lights, stereo, washer, dryer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, etc. The stove, fireplace and hot water is operated on propane gas. Water is gravity feed so there is no need of a water pump. We even have a back up water source that supplies 500 gallons of water to the cottage in the event of an emergency. Previous guests have appreciated the experience and often recreate this system in their own homes. Extended stays may have to run the generator to power the system's batteries if there is no sun. The generator is very quiet and turns on with a key. Otherwise the system is efficient enough to just run on solar energy.
If for any reason you need assistance our grounds man, housekeeper and property manager are available to serve you. They are the friendliest people and live close to the hale. As you read the guests comments you will see how fortunate we are to have them and be able to provide this sanctuary for everyone to enjoy. Since it is their work, they take pride in creating the most enchanting playground for nature lovers. There are three acres of mowed lawn with an abundance of flora and tropical fruits that our guests have the opportunity to enjoy. Picking fresh fruit from the trees is one of the favorite things to do as well as just hanging out at the hale. There is so much to explore right in your back yard that many of our guests never leave the grounds.
~ Look for our links below to our Website with more photos and information about the area and our Big Island Cottage. We've uploaded a YouTube Video that will show you some of the beautiful flora on the property. Read Guest comment to see if this is the place you have been searching for. You will not be disappointed!
Hilo Airport (ito) is the closest airport to the cottage which is an hours drive. Kona (koa) is more than two hours away, but most of our guests arrive in Kona and enjoy the beautiful drive to the hale. We recommend that you arrive before dark, but if that is not possible our directions are very thorough since many of our guests arrive late. It is all part of the adventure and we haven't lost anyone yet! Directions to the cottage and check in information will be available once you have confirmed your reservation. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call us in Bend Oregon pacific time from 10 to 10. We love to talk about Hawaii!!

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: Tom and Missy purchased Hale Aloha Aina in 2001 and have rented the cottage full time since 2002. We have maintained an outstanding reputation for providing the highest standard in service, accommodations and amenities for a very affordable rate. Our housekeeper and groundsman take extra pride in their work because they know how special this place really is...to us, our guests and for themselves. It is truly 'heaven on earth'! We are grateful for the aina (land) and the love it nurtures in all of us! Missy works personally with each guest to help them plan their dream vacation. Having been raised on the Big Island, she can offer experience and knowledge from a local’s perspective as well. She worked as a hygienist for 20 years and now has a small business as a metalsmith and jewelry designer. You can find her work under the name of Silver Falls Jewelry. Tom is a retired engineer of 30 years at Hewlett Packard. Currently he has a small archery business called Central Oregon Archery. He loves to teach Archery and volunteers most of his time to the communities youth. In 2012 our son and grandchildren moved to Central Oregon after living abroad in the military for the past ten years. Having missed them so much... we have decided to stick around for while!
Why the Owner Chose Pāhala, HI, USA:
This is where we want to spend the rest of our lives! Besides the breathtaking beauty of having your own garden of Eden...Having pure spring water on tap and rich volcanic soil at your feet is a rare commodity when you 'LIVE' on the BIG Island. Missy was raised on the Big Island and knows the struggle with having to deal with water catchment and cleared land without any soil. The climate at 2500 elevation is very comfortable for us having lived in the NW. It's not too Hot and it's not too cold... it's just RIGHT!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
THERE ARE NO OTHER HOMES ON THIS PROPERTY WHICH GIVES YOU THE ULTIMATE IN PRIVACY FOR THOSE SEEKING AN INTIMATE SETTING TO REJUVENATE, REKINDLE, AND RELAX! This vacation rental home features solar and propane appliances with a fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer, wireless internet and all the conveniences of a modern home. Some may say... 'Why rent a solar home when you can have electricity?' We say... 'Well why NOT!' It gives you a chance to see how easy it is to live 'Green' and self sufficient. Living off the grid doesn't have to be 'roughing it!' What makes Hale Aloha Aina special...: If you have read our guest comments, you will already know that Hale Aloha Aina has captured the hearts and minds of travelers from all over the world. We have been offering this sanctuary to visitors since 2001 and our occupancy rate has been at least 85% which is astounding. There are several reasons for our success, but most importantly, we do our best to make sure that our home is what our guests are seeking. Our personal website is very informative and our blog gives additional information in planning their trip.
