Guestbook comments from the owner

Windy and her twin six year olds stayed for two weeks at the end of summer.. The children loved the animals, the swing in the old mango tree, and the many plants. They even got to do a bit of gardening of their own. One of the twins suggested the name "Garden House" for this cottage. Windy commented that she and the twins had the best time. They had great fun at the Big Island beaches and the Garden House Hideaway was the perfect spot to spend their vacation. She and the twins are planning to return in the Fall for another extended stay.

Peaceful, and away from all the hussle and bustle

  • 5 of 5

A nice change from Kona and ideal location for when you want to see this side of the island.

Beautiful, and Mary is an amazing host who pays attention to detail.

By the way if you are a surfer, dont miss out on the getting to the break accross from the Graveyard. A Left hand turn down the street

There is also a nice area to do yoga, or stretch on the property or just to hang out in and enjoy the sunrise.

Friendly dogs and cat on property.

and be sure to the coastal scenic route into Hllo and make your way down to the waterfall by the botanical garden. besure to wear good footing to climb down and upand barefeet when you are by the water. (slippery)

Private cottage off grid

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three night at Mary's Garden cottage and enjoyed living "Off Grid". I had always thought we were fairly mindful in our lifestyle but it really comes home when you depend on the weather to charge the batteries and provide your water. Mary has back up when Mother Earth doesn't provide what is needed so no fear of running out of water or electricity. The cottage is very private, quiet and clean. Mary provided us with nice treats of papaya and coffee from her trees and eggs from her chickens. There were many staples in the cupboards as well which sure helps when you are travelling and yet want to cook your own meals. The cottage is very convenient to explore Waipo Valley, Akaka Falls, Tropical Botanical Gardens, Mauna Kea and Hilo. Thanks Mary for all your hospitality.

Truly Wonderful Cottage and Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for four nights after staying elsewhere on the Big Island for three nights and this little cottage was by far superior. We are very picky about beds and the bed here is luxurious from the mattress to the linens. Everything we needed was provided including coffee grown on the property, eggs from Mary's chickens, a papaya from her trees and even a nice little chocolate mac nut treat. The outdoor shower was completely private and the view was phenomenal. We must have said "wow" a thousand times. Mary is a wonderful hostess and her ambassadors Holly, Bonnie, Trouble, Bramble and the sheep only add to the enjoyment. The best part for us was living off the grid for four days proved it can be done and it can be done well. Thank you Mary, we will be back.

Perfect peaceful get away

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgous little place. You will never forget the amazing sunrises, the beautiful flowers, the stars, or the sounds of nature. We are so glad we chose to stay here. It was our first trip to Hawaii and what amazing surroundings. The little cottage is beautiful, emaculately cared for and cozy. If you are not a big crowd person and prefer a peaceful relaxed stay this is the place. It's close to gardens, falls, spectacular views and not far out of town. Everything you need is within 20 min drive. Mary has all the info you could need. She gave us recommendations on anything we asked about. She also shared her fresh fruit right off the trees on the property. We have already recommended it to anyone we know thinking about a trip to Hawaii.

Best Trip Of My Life

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in a different building on same property. If you want to feel the experience of off the grid....this is it. It was the most relaxing experience I have ever had. For us it wasn't a vacation but a house/property hunting excursion. I totally recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay....this is it. Whether it be the cottage or garden house. Mary the owner is the sweetest and kindest person I have ever met in my life. She will make sure you have a good experience. And her yard/garden is the best thing in this universe. Than you Mary for a great experience, and you know you will see us someday soon!!!
