Keaau Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage,2 Bedrooms with Bunk Area (sleeps 2-6),1 Bath

Aloha!

Come join Tiki on our wonderful lanai, relaxing to the sounds of island birds and enjoying the refreshing tradewinds. Our Hawaiian style hale has all of the living quarters on the second floor, which takes advantage of the airflow, keeping it cool and comfortable. Situated on an acre with beautiful landscaping, 1/2 of the property is fenced and gated for extra privacy. The back 1/2 of the property is a bit wilder but feel free to roam all of it looking for fruits in season on our banana, lemon, lime, honey tangerine, avocado and guava trees. You'll be sure to come across pineapple as well and lilikoi (passion fruit) vines line the fence.

Inside the kitchen and living room are open to one another, inviting conversation while cooking goes on. The kitchen has a full stove and fridge, a microwave, coffee pot, blender and all of the pots, pans, utensils, plates etc. that you'll need to whip up an island meal. The main bedroom, the 'Shell Room', has a queen platform bed for restful nights and a full closet with shelves for your belongings. The 'Jungle Room' will accommodate the rest of the family or friends with a queen bed and twin bunkbeds, (it also has a full closet with shelves). But where you'll really want to be is on the lanai, enjoying outside living while sipping a cup of coffee in the morning before heading out to explore the Big Island or barbequing dinner on the gas barbeque in the evening when you return.

Tiki's Hut is in Hawaiian Paradise Park, which is centrally located between Hilo and Pahoa. Many wonders abound nearby to explore including Volcanoes National Park (a must, only 40 minutes away), Ahalanui Thermal Spring Pool (fun for kids and adults alike), Kapoho Tide Pools (great snorkeling), Kalapana and Kaimu black sand beaches and active lava flows! The Makuu Farmers Market is held on Sundays at the south end of Hawaiian Paradise Park, next to the highway and is filled with vendors offering many unique items in addition to local fruits and vegetables. You'll also want to plan a day trip up the beautiful north coast to the view the incredible Waipio Valley, which is sacred ground to the native Hawaiians. Access beyond the view point is limited to 4 wheel drive (which you can rent in Hilo) or you can pay for a guided tour into the valley.

As we are new to the area also, please let us know about your experiences at these and the many other places that you discover!

About Dave & Alison Hartley

Dave and I (Alison) are actually quite new to the Big Island ourselves! Dave was in the services on Oahu in the early '70s, spending almost six years there and fell in love with Hawaii. I made my first trip to Hawaii more recently, in 2009, when we went to Kauai for a family gathering and I was hooked. We came to the Big Island last year (2011) to check it out and visit friends who had just bought a home nearby and decided this area was for us. We actually stayed at the Dolphin Hideaway run by Laura Richman, a realtor with Remax and she was very helpful, providing a lot of info about the area, so we could make a good decision (great sales lady). Eventually we want to move here full time but with twin grandbabies on the way, the timing isn't quite right yet! In the meantime, we plan to come here as often as possible and enjoy our hale, while exploring the island, as we hope you will.

Dave & Alison Hartley purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Dave & Alison Hartley chose Keaau

We love being in a country setting. Hawaiian Paradise Park and the Keaau area has that wonderful country feel without being too far from Hilo, so we have easy access to stores and activities.

What makes this cottage unique

Our hale is situated on the property in such a way that it takes full advantage of the tradewinds and still leaves plenty of open area in which to play. Many plantings line the fences, providing privacy and are beautiful to view from our second story vantage. It is a short drive down the road to the coastline and a walking trail from which to view the crashing waves (and whales at the right time of year).

Work Trip

  • 5 of 5
Needed a place to stay close to Hilo, HI for work that was priced reasonable. This was just the home, had everything needed and the home had everything stated in the description. Was a little concerned about the lack of air conditioning but it was not a problem, it cools off at night and the master and living room ceiling fans worked great. I will be back in this area for a month later but this home is already booked. The house is very secluded, from the home you can only see a few other roofs and part of the road, you feel like you are alone in the jungle of Hawaii. The lanai is the place to be when here!! Thank you!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5
My brother and I stayed at the house for 5 days and absolutely loved it. The pictures don't do the hut justice! The house was impeccably clean and inviting with a well stocked kitchen. There were also quite a few books about Big Island and activities which was very thoughtful on the part of the owners. I also really appreciated having lots of beach towels and extra linen. Overall, I was really impressed with the comfort and spaciousness of the house, and the thoughtfulness of the owners in every way. The location was also perfect - just a short drive from Hilo, farmers market and the beaches. Alison was a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend the Tiki hut to anyone visiting the East side of the island!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Tiki's Hut for a week while looking for property in the Puna area and I told my husband that "this place would suit me". Unfortunately it wasn't for sale. :-) It was very clean and comfortable. I have stayed at a number of vacation rentals over the years and I felt that the kitchen was one of the best equipped that I've seen. We would definitely consider renting it again.

The listing description was very accurate regarding the location, photos,
and amenities. We found the location to be a super spot for getting to Hilo to
surf, see waterfalls and gardens. It was also handy for all the incredible
Puna sights as well as to Volcano and the unforgetable hikes.
We have rented VRBO sites around the world for 10 years and found this
one to be so clean and welcoming. We slept so well and appreciated the fresh
fruit and big deck at the front for eating meals. The owners were very helpful and
communicated through emails with ease. The price was very reasonable. We
would return in a flash and would highly recommend this spot to friends and relatives.

Long term stay

  • 4 of 5
My wife and daughter and I stayed here from June 28th till Sep 15th. We needed a short term rental to live at while we were in the process of purchasing a new home. We relocated from Montana to Hawaii. The Tiki provided a really nice place to live. It is very private and big enough for a family of 3 or 4. It is in a great location in the Puna district, very close to Hilo, Volcano, Kalapana, Pahoa and even just a 2 hr drive to Kona in West Hawaii. It provided us a great home and Alison and Dave were very nice and accommodating for us, The place was clean, had plenty of towels and linen. The dryer broke during our stay, but they had a new one delivered. There are fruit trees to harvest and a spacious yard to play in. Cable TV, Internet included. The Lanai is very spacious and we took advantage of the barbecue. I would recommend this for anyone traveling to the Big Island that has a family. Thanks to Alison and Dave for all they did for us, they are very nice and did there best to make sure our extended stay was pleasant and just like home.
