Hi highly recommend Mary's cottage 20 minutes north of Hilo. When I arrived my jaw dropped... it is paradise! Mary was so sweet to leave me with eggs from her chickens and coffee she grows on her property. The cottage is adorable and very clean with everything you need in the kitchen to make your own meals. I forgot I was off-grid it was so comfortable. The shower was nice and hot. Her place is near waterfalls and the best botanical garden, and a short drive to the hustle and bustle of Hilo. How lucky you if you book this place. I plan to return! ENJOY your stay.
