TOTALLY PRIVATE 1,000 SQARE FT. COTTAGE SURROUNDED BY OHI'A TREES, PLAMS AND ORCHIDS. IF SERENITY IS WHAT YOUR LOOKING FOR IN A GETAWAY THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. THE COTTAGE OPENS COMPLETELY TO THE OUTSIDE FLORA AND THE TRADE BREEZE JUST CARESSES YOUR SKIN. THE AIR IN KAPOHO IS SOME OF THE BEST AIR IN THE WORLD.
THE COTTAGE HAS A COMPLETE KITCHEN AND EVERYTHING YOU'D NEED TO ENJOY SOME OF THE BEST SNORKELING ON THE ISLAND, WHICH IS ONLY MINUTES AWAY. OH, I MUST NOT FORGET TO MENTION THE WARM POND, MY FAVORITE PLACE IN THE WHOLE WORLD, A MILE AWAY.
THE COTTAGE HAS A KING BED, A FUTON COUCH THAT OPENS TO A DOUBLE BED AND I ADD ANOTHER DOUBLE BED IF NEEDED FOR CHILDREN, THE COTTAGE IS CHILDREN FRIENDLY. THERE IS AN INSIDE SHOWER AND AN OUTSIDE SHOWER WHICH IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE. (I LIVED IN THE COTTAGE WHILE I WAS BUILDING THE MAIN HOUSE). THE COTTAGE HAS A LIBRARY OF BOOKS, MAPS AND MOVIES TO WATCH ON DVD, SORRY THE COTTAGE DOESN'T HAVE TV. IT HAS WI-FI AND FREE LONG DISTANCE PHONE SERVICE ANY WHERE IN THE US AND CANADA.
MASSAGE CAN ALSO BE ARRANGED UPON REQUEST.
RETIRED HAIRSTYLIST AFTER 40 YEARS, BUT STILL CUT A BIT AT HOME.
I LIVE ON THE PROPERTY AS WELL ( ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PROPERTY) WITH MY 94 YEAR OLD MOM WHO I BROUGHT TO LIVE WITH ME 2 1/2 YEARS AGO. WHO BY THE WAY IS STILL HOLDING HER OWN. AND I MUST NOT FORGET BELLA, MY 11 YEAR OLD JACK RUSSELL.
ROSEMARIE NATHEWITCH purchased this cottage in 2002
THE BEAUTY AND SERENITY YOU'LL FEEL ONCE YOU PASS THROUGH MY GATE IS LIKE NOTHING ELSE IN KAPOHO. YOU'LL FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE THE WHOLE PROPERTY TO YOURSELF. THE FOREST IS STILL PRETTY MUCH UNTOUCHED. I KEPT THE ORIGINAL FOREST. I WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO OPEN THE PROPERTY IN 2002, I WANTED TO KEEP THE BOTANICAL BEAUTY AND 450 YEARS OLD LAVA FORMATIONS THAT REMIND ME OF PELE'S SCULPTURES.
THIS PROPERTY IS A MUST SEE AND ENJOY.
THE PRIVACY AND THE FEEL OF SERENITY ONCE YOU ENTER THIS UNIQUE BOTANICAL PARADISE.
SO PRIVATE AND SO CLOSE TO THE OCEAN WITHOUT HAVING NEIGHBORS.
Thank you for the wonderful stay in your lovely cottage. We treasure the time we are having as we discuss new places and new faces during our visit. It's hard to believe our stay is coming to an end this week. We'll miss the peaceful setting, the frog song and the fresh air.
Thank you for making this place available! We are feeling oh so good,
Pam and John
We loved our week in this lovely and charming cottage. Private and tranquil, stocked with everything needed for function and comfort. Location is great, close to Volcano National Park and the surrounding area has more than can be seen in the time we had. Rosemarie is a great host, making us feel at home the moment we arrived
We stayed at Rosie's Retreat from February 1st to 14th. Fell in love with it upon arrival! Rosie is the sweetest person you will ever meet! Greeted with big hugs, we felt right at home from the minute we arrived.
Words cannot explain how beautiful the cottage is! Set in the middle of the Hawaiian jungle, you have luxuries such as an outdoor shower, multiple ceiling fans, well equipped kitchen, movies, books, beach chairs, and a really comfortable king sized bed, to name a few! Rosie even supplies the best tour book you will ever find on the Big Island of Hawaii and she would come every week with fresh towels and sheets. The cottage is very well maintained and clean.
The location, we found perfect - only 1 mile from the Kapoho Tidal Pools, close to the warm pond, and the drive down Hwy 137 will bring you to so many breathtaking sites, and then right out to the new black sand beach. If you are more adventurous, travel north on 137 and hike down the trail by the big old truck & find the lava swimming pool! Amazing snorkeling - but go when the surf is not too high. It is off to your left at the end of the trail (around the first lava ridge to your left). We couldn't imagine staying any where else on the island. Kapoho is in a little banana belt of the Puna side of the island and our weather was phenomenal!
Should you be considering booking this beautiful little cottage, you won't regret it! We loved every minute we were there!
Great private location yet within close proximity of Kapoho Tide Pools and Pahoa. About 28 miles from Hilo. Beautiful and lush tropical plants everywhere on the property.
Rosemarie was very informative and friendly and we look forward to returning here.
My son and I had wonderful time at Rosie's. the location was perfect, close to the warm ponds and tidal pools for fantastic snorkeling. No big high rise hotels here, just old Hawaiian charm at a secure tropical setting.We felt as if Rosie was an old friend,very kind and helpful and although very busy, always up for a nice chat. the cottage was more then we had expected, clean and comfortable.beautiful island orchids everywhere,lush vegetation and Rosie's hospitality made our stay here on the big island one to remember !! Mahalo Rosie, hope to see you again soon. Your friend, John Dayton, Nevada
We enjoyed our visit and will happily recommend this rental. It is located in quiet countryside and is convenient for visits to the coastal areas, Hilo or the Volcano National Park area .
