Overview

About the property

one bedroom private and cozy retreat cottage surrounded by greenery

The cottage is built 6 feet above ground on the front side (with 14 stairs up to the front door) and at ground level on the back side. It is all wood and glass with open beam construction. It’s tucked into mostly native forest of Hawaiian Ohia and Hapuu (Hawaii Tree Fern) that is glorious in the mountain sun. This little cottage has ten large picture windows to give it a beautiful, expansive, tree-top view of the surrounding trees and vibrant plant life. It has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a sitting room with an expansive outdoor view and a small bathroom with a tub/shower. There is an open veranda part way around the cottage as well as a back deck to relax and enjoy the late afternoon sun. The entire cottage is about 850 sq. ft. Very comfortable and spacious for two people

There are lots of nature walking trails and hiking trails in and around Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with one to the summit of Mauna Loa Volcano at almost 14000 feet - a rigorous 3 day backpacking trip. When the volcano is active, you can hike to see lava flowing inland or into the ocean. When visiting you should be prepared for hot and cold and dry and wet.

If you are planning to visit other areas of the Big Island, we have another vacation rental at the North East side of the Big Island. It is a perfect spot to explore hidden gems on the Hamakua Coast of this island. Check out our Rainbow Bee Farm Cottage at homeaway #3799114

We will be happy to answer any questions before and after your arrival. Feel free to contact us by phone or by email.

This is our own retreat cottage. We love it. We hope you'll enjoy it and care for it as we do. It is a place for quiet contemplation and meditative retreat with a feeling of serenity both inside and outside.

Whether you decide to visit with us or not,

we send you our Aloha,

Richard and Candice

Amazing accommodation and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This spot was the highlight of our trip! It's conveniently located minutes away from town and Volcano National Park. The home is extremely private providing 360 degree views of nature and no sign of other dwellings. It was a real treat and the hosts (Candice and Richard) were superb at communicating and providing advice for different activities and things to see that are a little off the beaten trail. There's an excellent book outlining some of their favourite restaurants, locations and sights along with all of the major activities, hikes and things to see in the area. The home is thoughtfully designed and impeccably clean. We'll definitely be back! ~ Jack

Perfect Forested Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough great things about our stay here. The home is perfectly appointed with more than we could've used during our stay: kitchen staples, headlamps, ample books on local birds and flowers, and DVDs. My 2 favourite things though were the windows on all sides of the home that made us feel like we were right in the middle of a beautiful forest and the cosy fireplace at night. Relaxing after a day of hiking around Volcano with a fireplace and the views was just delightful.

beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time here. We loved the windows. They're huge and give an amazing view of the lush scenery. It's really nice to be right next door to Volcano National Park. Candice was a great host. She gave us helpful tips about lava viewing, and she was also very responsive when we needed things.

a great discovery!

  • 5 of 5

This jewel of a cottage surrounded by exotic greenery is beautifully designed, tastefully furnished, thoughtfully equipped for visitors (good kitchen!) - a perfect peaceful vacation retreat, but within easy reach of all the excellent hiking in the Volcano area, as well as the activities and sightseeing around the volcano itself. The hosts provided useful, detailed information about the house and the area, and were clearly ready to give us any other assistance if we had wanted it. We would highly recommend this place to any couple (there's only one bed) looking for a rental in this area. We stayed four nights and would have enjoyed being there longer.
