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.

Secluded property with beautiful grounds and animals too. Mary was so gracious and shared fruit and eggs from her yard. She was so informative about places to go and things to do. Wonderful ocean views from the yard and gazebo.

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!!!

I had a lovely stay, peaceful and very quiet. Mary is a fine host and even took me to a neighborhood party, where I met so many interesting people.
As others have noted, it is indeed best to bring your own groceries, though the kitchen is well-stocked with staples, spices, and condiments. Mary provided fresh eggs from her own hens, and mangos from her trees. Her farm seems utterly self-sufficient - if you want to sample true off-grid Hawaiian living, this is the place to stay.

We would go back in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at this property. Mary was a great host. She was helpful in recommending places to visit and took a lot of time to show our very curious daughter around the property and introduce her to all the animals and plants. It was a great location to slow down, disconnect and relax but still a good base for exploring a lot of the island. Honoka'a is nearby and has some good restaurants (Grammas' Kitchen was our favorite and Tex's Drive In has the best malasadas on the island), groceries and shops. Hilo's farmers market was fun to check out and there are some good beaches just south of Hilo and in Kona if you don't mind a bit longer but nice drive. The listing is accurate and the property was very clean, comfortable and well stocked. The outdoor shower was great and warm on a few rainy nights.

Wonderful Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
I am in a long distance relationship (Sydney-Chicago) and Hawaii is half way. So I searched for a nice opportunity for me and my boyfriend to spent two weeks in Hawaii, after over 8 months apart. We also planed on getting married during our stay. So we stayed with Mary for two weeks and its been amazing! Her property is beautiful, her pets are super cute and Mary is a wonderful person! There was no distraction (no phone reception- at least with T-Mobile) and no Wifi or anything. It was just perfect to spent lots of time together and to relax. Everything is available in the cottage, like towels, beach equipment, left over foods from past people etc. The cottage itself is super cute and romantic. The frogs didn´t bother us at all, it was super quiet. It was just perfect and we had a wonderful time!

Wonderful Eco-Friendly Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was a wonderful find on the Big Island of Hawaii. Mary is a very gracious hostess and greeted us on our arrival. She gave us time to unpack and get comfortable before taking us on a tour of her beautiful estate. The description of the property and cottage is perfect. The views are spectacular, especially from the Tea House. The cottage is absolutely charming and spotless with every available amenity. The bed gave us the best night's sleep of our trip! This is a most relaxing, friendly retreat. Mary was a wealth of information about the most interesting sites to visit. We were disappointed we had not booked a longer stay but if we go to the Big Island again, this wonderful cottage and hostess will be first on our list for a longer stay. Mahalo Mary. Trev and Rose-Ann
