Thank you for the great stay! The cottage was nice and cozy. Our children enjoyed the swim in the pool! Fantastic views, sunrise was spectacular even in the rain! Beautiful water fall, such a treat to see. Kids liked seeing all of the animals. Thank you. Leina and Keith

LOVELY RELAXING STAY

  • 5 of 5
Lovely little hideaway not far off the beaten path. This was our first stay in a VRBO property and we loved it. We stayed in 2 other resort properties while in HI and this was our favorite lodging. The cottage is a nice mixture of quaint and upscale spa. It is very spacious. The bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and sitting area are all sizeable. The front porch also has a nice swing to relax on. While you could sleep up to 6 I think this is perfect for a family of 4. There is an upstairs loft with a futon that would be nice for an older child (though I would not put younger ones up there because they would have to climb a ladder).
The setting is also lovely. After turning off the highway and driving for a few minutes you feel are in the country. At night the frogs serenade you to sleep.
Also, you will be visited by the owner's dogs. If you are a dog lover, you will be in heaven. If you are not a dog lover (I am not) you will be by the time you leave. Bunny is one of the cutest, spunkiest little things I have ever seen.
The only downsides to this property (and there are always downsides) is that light sleepers might be bothered by the frogs. A pair of earplugs (which every light sleeper should travel with) would take care of things. I myself am a light sleeper and was not bothered by the frogs. The roosters also crow in the morning but they did not bother me. Most folks will be awake anyways because of the time difference with the mainland.
I would return and stay in this property in a heart beat. Amazing value for the price.

EXCELLENT COTTAGE AND HOSTS!

  • 5 of 5
As a frequent visitor of Hawaii, had a great stay at Pu'u Moi. The cottage was spotless and comfortable. Steve (and family) was very friendly and accommodating. Great spot including laundry and private waterfall on working/gated a short distance from Hilo. I totally recommend staying here. ;)

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a lot of time researching places for our trip to the Big Island and we truly believe we came upon the PERFECT place for our needs. It had a great location, around 8 minutes north of downtown Hilo, which allowed for frequent trips into town for some of the locally owned restaurants and it also provided easy access to the entire Hamakua Coast.

The cottage and its grounds provided relaxation in a charming, country setting. We were thrilled to watch the horses, listen to the chickens and roosters, and play with all of the friendly dogs. The waterfall was cold and extremely refreshing; it was a thrill to enjoy. Relaxing in and around the pool with its spectacular view was a nice contrast to the running we were doing while hiking and sightseeing all over the island.

Locally owned places such as this are a treat because you feel "at home" while on vacation. You have a pool, hot tub, waterfall, and small cottage situated in the Hawaiian countryside. We felt at peace here.

Thank you to Steve and Keala for having us! PS: You HAVE to try the rambutan, toss Bunny the ball, and swim in the waterfall. Enjoy!

I can't say enough ab how wonderful this place is! I wish we could have just moved in! The waterfall on the property is unbelievable as are the views from the front porch swing. We had a wonderful time in the east side of the evening and can't wait to return one day!

PARADISE AWAY FROM HOME....ANIMALS INCLUDED

  • 5 of 5
We usually try to stay in locally owned vacation rentals and the Pu'u Moi cottage was on the top of our list for our vacation to the Big Island. It certainly did not disappoint. It is a separate cottage with all the privacy that you need yet Steve and Keala (owners) made as feel a part of their family. Steve just had rotator cuff surgery so he included us on some of his chores. Harvesting papayas (one tree) and round up some roosters and hens that were being given away....FUN!!! Loved all the animals...all their dogs...especially Bunny who is addicted to chasing tennis balls. Images of Bunny bounding across a field where the growth was at least 2 feet high (Bunny is only about a foot in height...maybe) and only occasionally seeing the top of his head above the growth as he tries to find a ball the was thrown there by Steve. Also enjoyed all the other dogs, horses, sheep, roosters and hens. Oh...did I mention the stream that they have on their property with a waterfall that ended in a pond. Yes...you can swim in the pond. Able to pick Rambutan (fruit identical to lychee but instead of a smooth exterior it is spikey) and guavas. Both were outstanding. Only wish the mangos were in season too.
This cottage is in a perfect location just several miles north of Hilo with easy access to the entire Hamakua Coast. Wish we could have stayed longer, unfortunately this popular place was booked for the rest of the week. However, it was paradise for us for our short stay. We will definitely plan to stay here again during our next visit to the Big Island.
Thanks...Steve and Keala

PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5
Without doubt or question we WILL be back to Pu'u Moi Country Cottage! The house was beautiful, the antique furnishings, the high end bedding and linen...it seems that every detail has been thought of. Keala and Steve are so gracious and kind..thank you both for sharing your perfect slice of Hawaii with us. My son loved playing with the dogs and running around with the roosters! The pool and hot tub are amazing...and just when you think it can't get any better, you discover the waterfall on the property! Beautiful! Thanks again Keala and Steve.
