Opened for guests in 2010, and STILL $99 a night, HULILI FARM COTTAGE (pronounced who-lee-lee) has a 'SWEEPING, UNSPOILED, TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY VIEW' in every direction! The sun and moon rise over the ocean as you watch the wonders unfold from your comfy rocking chair OR swinging bed on the lanai. Birdsong will be the only 'noise' on this private farm located at the end of a dead end country road and you will be the only guests. Relax as you walk through the orchards and please, sample the fruit...that's when it is best!
The COTTAGE is bright, clean, and furnished with all you will need. The 'BAMBOO SLEEPING CHAMBER' offers a KING size 'sleep number' bed with dual controls for firmness. A FULL size futon is inside and outside on the LANAI is the QUEEN size 'HANGING BED'. (This bed has become a favorite with our guests, who sleep, nap, read and talk while swaying in the breeze, taking in the beauty.) Walk-in shower and pedestal sink in the cottage bath. Private laundry room with all supplies is available for our guests and just steps away from the cottage.
A huge AVOCADO tree hugs the PATIO next to the LANAI. We have named her, MS. CADDO. You may taste her fruits in season and almost always there will be a stalk of 'apple' bananas hanging from her branches. Bring some groceries and you are ready to settle in.
We encourage you to take the time to read our GUEST COMMENTS. They paint a true picture of their stay at Hulili Farm. Here is seclusion, peace and quiet on a tropical farm 'paradise'.
The ultimate guidebook: 'HAWAII, THE BIG ISLAND REVEALED' is in the cottage for your use while exploring and yes we now have WIFI in the cottage. Have fun!
Aloha, The Perkins

The Perkins built and replanted what is now called HULILI FARM. Full time farmers, we grow tropical fruits called longan (lawn-gone) and lychee (lie-chee).
There are appx. 9 acres in orchard. The
remaining acreage holds house, barn,
cottage and an enormous 'front yard'.
Our favorite thing to do? Sit around a campfire under a full moon.
We were delighted with the END OF THE ROAD location, The QUIET, and the UNDEVELOPED, UNSPOILED VIEW of the ocean and surrounding country. The 500 foot elevation means better view and pleasant breezes. The land has a gentle slope toward the orchards and ocean. Here we have SOIL, not rock like most folks on the Island. The surrounding land makes it seem as if we are on hundreds of acres. When we first viewed the property we thought, 'this is what people dream Hawaii looks like...unspoiled.'
There is the feeling of being the only people on the island. With such privacy and space, we enjoy outside living morning to night! Mornings on the lanai as you watch the sunrise over the Pacific are incredible, as are the evening sunset colors and moonrise. We have LESS RAIN than Hilo and enjoy tropical trade winds that keep us cooler in the summer than the 'town' folks.
