About Shauna Knutsen
We would like to introduce ourselves to you, our guests. We are John and Shauna Knutsen, and we have two children Cindy and Zane.
We fell in love with Hawaii when we got married on Kauai, and have been coming back every since. There is no other place to us like Hawaii, its not just the beauty you see with your eyes, its the beauty of the humble people, the culture and the slowed down island time feel that allows you to truly relax and take the time to enjoy creation.
We love to bring our family and friends to enjoy this wonderful place, and even though all of Hawaii has so much to offer we decided on the Big Island- since it is so large and there is so much variety and so many climates- What other island can you be in a rain forest, an arid desert, an active volcano, on top of the tallest mountain from the sea floor (snow covered in winter), all on the SAME DAY! And even though all the islands are beautiful we feel that this island has some of the Best of the Best right here!
Shauna Knutsen purchased this house in 2012
Why Shauna Knutsen chose Hilo
We chose this area since we love the beauty, the tropical rain at night, the Coqui frogs singing, and the area is centrally located to our favorite places! And we love the easy going friendly laid back atmosphere.
What makes this house unique
This house having the private and separate cottage that our Gardener stays in. it allows our guests their privacy while being close enough to take care of things and be there in case we need him for our guests, puts our mind at ease.
We also like the quiet, country feeling so that when you get up and look outside you see nature, you hear the birds, and not the hustle of the city.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Making this charming place available for world weary travelers was a kind and generous thing to do! Thank you for the clean sheets, nice towels, the complete instruction tips on what and where. You will find everything needed here and the best coffee beans this side of anywhere!
The cottage caretaker (Rich) has a good natured presence. I've told all my friends about you and Coqui Cottage. Don't be surprised if some of them beats a path to your door!
