My wife and I stayed here for a week in April, and will return! The long time Hawi residents and owners, Jennifer and Jeff, have created a little piece of paradise for all those lucky enough to discover it's secrets. The cottage has everything you wish for in a secluded setting...comfy, cozy, clean, perfectly stocked, with cool breezes and lush tropical plantings that have developed over time with care by Jennifer's green thumb. Ask for a tour of the gardens and be amazed. The two owner artisans, Jeff a local contractor, artist and designer with his skilled hands, and lovely Jennifer with her gardening skills and extraordinary cut glass designs which decorate the cottage are both a treasure. The outdoor shower in rain or shine became a favorite ritual. Much appreciated were the basket of tropical fruit and local Kona coffee upon arrival. Ask them for a history of the main house, which originally was a church that they had moved onto the site, and subsequently remodeled into a beautiful island home with very special touches. A quick drive into quaint Hawi town beckons with shops and restaurants choices for all. If you want that special stay, quiet in the real Hawaii spirit, and to create some memories of your Hawaiian vacation, try this special discovery and you won't be disappointed.
