About Iliahi

Aloha! We call the Big Island Home! As a Native to the Hawaiian Islands, my husband and I fell in love with this area for it's remote beauty. You can connect with the Aina and feel the Mana. This area holds so much History of the Hawaiian People. This is Pele's Home! We love Hosting Guests from all over the world. We have been in business for many years and are loving every minute of it. We greet all our Guests and treat them like our own Ohana!

Mahalo again and we look forward to Hosting you:)

Why Iliahi chose Pahoa

We love the Puna area for it's remote beauty, green forest, rugged coast and deep pacific blue waters. We love the east side of the Big Island as we experience no Vog due to our constant Easterly trade-winds and we experience less rainfall than Hilo. Our area is also known for it's Sunny days and Rainy nights one of the reasons why it is so green and lush. It is one of the most beautiful areas in the Hawaiian Island chain. This place holds so much History of the Hawaiian People and is sacred. This is Pele's Home! This area feels like old Hawaii, full of Beauty ,Tradition, friendly people and the Aloha Spirit truly Lives here!

What makes this cottage unique

The inspiration to build the The Bali Cottage was from our own home The Bali House at Kehena Beach, the Cottage was Custom built using imported woods from Bali. We tried to use as much renewable and reusable materials in it's construction. We wanted to create a place that our Guest's would enjoy year round and have a place that could be affordable yet elegant. The Bali Cottage has an amazing unobstructed oceanfront view of Kehena Bay & the deep blue Pacific Ocean and is only 200 ft away from Kehena Beach. It has its own hot tub, garden and is gated and has covered parking and has kitchen and on suite bathroom with a covered Lanai upstairs.

Aloha and E Komo Mai!

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect place for us to stay for our honeymoon. The view of the ocean and sun rise in the mornings while sitting on the front porch was amazing. Tim and Iliahi set up a very cozy sanctuary for those wanting to get away. They even provide items to enjoy the area such as snorkle and fins, towels, or movies to watch if you get a rainy day. The Bali cottage itself gets 5 stars! It was very clean and welcoming.

The only reasons I gave it a 4 stars: it is a bit far of a drive. If you plan to stay mostly at the cottage or enjoy activities near kahena and kalapana its great, but the added 20-30 minutes to get to the main highway can be a lot added for everyday travels. There are also not a lot of restaurants near by, but the kitchen at the cottage can overcome that issue. Secondly, the Bali House is a lot closer to the cottage than I thought. So if another couple is present there on their patio you can hear each others conversations, although this gets diminished with the Coqui frogs :0)

This was a nice peaceful get away for us to unwind and be our own personal paradise for our honeymoon.

Intimate, unique hideaway with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the Big Island in celebration of our 5 year anniversary, my graduation from college, and our baby-on-the-way. The Bali cottage was just perfect for us! Not too big, not too small. Every morning when you wake up you can see the ocean right from the bed. The natural vegetation, and the intense singing of the frogs at night make you feel like you are deep in the jungle. We visited the beautiful black sand beach right across the street, as well as the "secret beach" just a short walk away. If you are looking to get away from the typical tourist scene, I definitely recommend the Bali cottage, and the Puna coast. The people in the town of Pahoa (12 miles from the house) were super nice and there is a great restaurant, Kaleo's, to eat at for lunch and dinner. The house was stocked with all of the basic amenities, and very clean and well kept. Tim met us on arrival and showed us around the house with a huge smile on his face and was happy to suggest the best places to eat and visit. When I spoke with Ili on the phone she was super cheery and friendly.

Thanks Tim & Ili, we look forward to coming back!

Cute, well situated and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for your care and attention during our stay. The property was perfect for our needs, cozy, clean and unique. Sitting on the Lanai watching the Dolphins was awesome. We were looking for something a little different from the typical condo and this really fit the bill. We hope to come back.

Romantic and restful

  • 5 of 5

This was my favorite property of the entire trip. Loved the romantic, calming vibe of the house and location.

The cottage was easy to get to and right across the street from the water with a water view while sitting on the deck. Which we did most of the time. The bed was comfortable and the sounds of the rain forest lulled you to sleep.

The kitchen was well stocked and we had no trouble making breakfast and packing our lunches for the day. We didn't do any big cooking (it is vacation!). This location is far enough from a store that you do need to plan ahead.

We did visit many of the sites on this side of the island like the tide pools. A very relaxing, short drive away and really nice. We also went to Uncle Robert's Awa Club on Wednesday for music, food and a little shopping. It is worth the trip if you like to people watch and love live music.

Would love to visit again someday...
