Overview

Hawi Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1.5BR+/2BA Sleeps 4-6

Kokoiki Cottage offers everything you need to enjoy all the best the Big Island has to offer. Reach this destination to satisfy all the comforts of home and varied options to great Hawaiian adventures. Enjoy convenient proximity to incredible beaches, spectacular mountains, luscious valleys, endemic rainforests, sublime grasslands, and clear blue skies. This custom styled dwelling is only 19 miles from the finest beaches in Hawaii and only five minutes away from great snorkeling and seasonal whale watching. Delight in this rainbow countryside with the clearest vog free skies of all Hawaii Nei. Trade winds and low elevation make for ideal comfortable temperatures and bright blue skies. This location is as close to the beach as you can be in Hawi.

This independent cottage is new and custom built with high quality surfaces of granite, marble, sandstone, onyx, tile, copper, bamboo, and locally salvaged hardwoods. The space is practical, clean, and well ventilated with lots of natural day light, and gorgeous warm evening lighting. The fully equipped kitchen features a high quality water filter, dishwasher, gas range/oven, large fridge with filtered ice maker, dual elevation counter tops and serving bar. The patio has a grill and great sunset views. The cottage can comfortably accommodate 2 couples or a couple with 3-4 kids. There is a plush queen bed in the main bedroom with its own bathroom. There is a second queen bed in the living room, which works well as a second bedroom by closing the sliding glass door and curtains, blocking sound and light from the kitchen and opens to its own bathroom. The long sectional couch is a comfortable spot for kids to crash out on, and there is also a single fold up futon. Lots of pillows, sheets and blankets are provided. There is a built in desk and wireless high speed internet throughout the property.

The cottage is located in a pastoral setting of 3.5 acres with a magnificent banyan tree. So come throw a Frisbee, fly a kite, and beat your friends and family at croquet or bocce ball. Our main goal at Kokoiki Cottage is to provide you with a great livable space and support your vacation needs. We can provide the best massage therapists on the island and guarantee their work 100%. The living room easily accommodates two tables for couples massage. Hawi town is only 2 miles away for you to enjoy great restaurants, coffee shops, delis, galleries, and one of the best small town supermarkets where you can find island grass fed beef, fresh fish and local produce. Shop for lilikois, papayas, bananas, coconuts, lychee, mangoes, pineapples and more at Local Farmer’s Markets. The Volcano National Park is a 3 hour drive away. The Kona airport is just about 45 minutes away, though you may never want to leave this Big Island paradise.

About Michelangelo Salmoiraghi

I was born and raised here in Hawaii where I have lived most my life except for going to college to earn a Bachelors of Landscape Architecture at the University of Oregon. I live on this property with my my two kids, ages 10 and 15. I currently make my living as a builder and massage therapist.

Michelangelo Salmoiraghi purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Michelangelo Salmoiraghi chose Hawi

This location is great for getting away form the commercial resort locations, yet close enough to access the best beaches on the island.

What makes this cottage unique

The air is clear and vog free here. It is at the threshold where the desert meets the jungle, so if it raining you can typically drive out of it and be in the sun within 10 minutes.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing and Michael was a great host. My husband and I needed a quick get away from Kona and a fun place to go explore for a long weekend. The cottage is private and located in a beautiful area of Hawi. Super close to town, for quick access, far enough away to feel like you're in the country. We spent the days hiking and playing in the valleys and eating at the great little shops in Hawi (ice-cream:-). Coming home to the cottage in the evenings was perfect. The place is extremely clean, and well laid out. You see all the loving care he put into making it. Everything is so meticulously and artistically done and it was such a comfortable place to be.

We will certainly be back for another mini vacation.

Beautiful Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (three kids ages 9,6,3) stayed here in December and we had a fantastic experience. The home was lovely with many hand crafted details. The living room area very comfortably slept my three kids, leaving us with privacy in the main bedroom. The yard was huge, green and perfect for my kids to run around in without feeling like we were bothering anyone. The owner met us when we arrived and was very helpful, even bringing down some of his own boogie boards so my kids could use them at the beach. He gave us our space after that which we appreciated. The house also came with beach towels, mats, chairs and a cooler so you have everything you need.

The location also was one of the best parts about the house for us. You are right on the edge of the rainy part of the island. So everything around the house is green and lush and beautiful. But you are just minutes away from all the North Kohala beaches where it is almost always hot and sunny. And you are far enough away from Kona and the touristy areas, which we really enjoyed. But close enough that it isn't a pain if you need to drive there. We stayed in four different houses on our three week stay on the Big Island, and this was far and away our favorite. Mahalo!

a beautiful star in Hawi

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo Miguel, We felt so peaceful at Kokoiki Cottage, which is just what we were looking for. What an artist and craftsman you are to have created this space. For three woman friends traveling together, the place had a spacious feel. Sweet, clean and serene. I was

so relaxed when we left that I forgot some items at the cottage which Miguel was kind

enough to mail on to me. Above & beyond..mahalo nunui!

I would highly recommend your place to my friends & ohana. AND I wish upon a star

that we get to return soon. A hui hou!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a spotless, quiet, and lovely home. The owner Michel welcomed us and gave us the lay of the land and home. The four of us (2 boys ages 6 and 16) had a wonderful time climbing in the beautiful banyan tree in the back yard. The most amazing beaches were very close, Pololu being about a 15 min drive and Hapuna about a half hour. We loved being so close to the town of Hawi. If you want old Hawaii this is it! Michel was very gracious and knowledgable about just about anything on the island. Such a relaxing stay! We will definitely be back.

Kokoiki Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage with all the amenities. The kitchen was well equipped, very clean and beautifully finished. Did not include a microwave, but was ok otherwise. Very comfortable and quiet. Nice lanai to set out and have coffee in the morning. Only other item is that the TV is in the bedroom and not the living area. Otherwise, would highly recommend this rental.

Amazing Place to Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

Miguel has done a great job making this rental into an amazing get-away location. Clean and comfortable, the rental won us over the first time we stepped inside. Located just a few miles from wonderful small towns along the northern coast of the Big Island, we would definitely stay again.
