This beautiful little cottage was custom built by the owners in 2003 for the express purpose of sharing it with visitors from around the world. The setting is quite magical; with a 200 square foot screened lanai overlooking a flowing stream and the tropical gardens, you'll never want to leave. The fully equipped kitchen comes with custom cabinetry and concrete countertops and even a kitchen herb garden for your culinary specialties. From the comfortable queen sized bed in the master suite, step directly out onto the spacious (500sq ft) and very private open sun deck where there's a romantic soaking tub for two, gas barbeque grill, and comfortable lounge chairs to enjoy your morning coffee or tea. We've recently upgraded with new brick pavers, new tiled tub surround and an outdoor shower - all in a very private jungle setting just out side your backdoor.
Area Sightseeing: You'll love the seclusion, but this does not mean you'll be isolated. The cottage is 3 minutes away from the charming little town of Kapaau and 5 minutes from Hawi. These little towns are reminiscent of Old Hawaii and filled with lovely galleries, restaurants and hospitable people. Travel three miles to the east of the cottage and you'll come, literally, to the end of the road. Here you'll encounter approximately 10 miles of deeply cut lush valleys that were once the breadbasket of the island and home to tens of thousands of Hawaiians. They're unpopulated now, and yours to explore. The first valley, Pololu, is a 15-20 minute hike down from the highway terminus to a beautiful rock-strewn black sand beach. Traveling west from the cottage, a25-30 minute drive puts you at some of the finest world class beaches of the South Kohala Coast. The cottage has beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, snorkels and fins for your use.
Activities: The immediate area has a variety of fun filled activities to enjoy: there's an eco-adventure tour of the scenic valleys via zip-line or if you prefer there's also all-terrain vehicle tours as well as horseback riding, golf , helicopter rides, etc. you name it; we have it all! The owners live just a mile and a half away and are ready to help make your stay perfect.
