Terre's cottage is adjacent to her house in a very exclusive neighborhood of Hilo. It is as wonderful as she describes and as others have confirmed. It was neat, clean and well-stocked. Its location is exceptional; a few minutes drive from downtown Hilo (and the excellent farmer's market) and only a 2-block walk to the Ocean and a mar-velous 2-mile (RT) paved walk past a surfer's paradise and thru a virtual rain forest with waterfalls, streams and lush tropical flora. Terre's joie de vivre is an infectious rainbow.
Visitors to the wet side of the Big Island should be forewarned that nocturnal Coqui frogs have become neighbors everywhere in the past several years; they sing and chirp their happiness out of sight, welcoming your sharing paradise with them.
