Paauilo Cottage Rental Photos and Description
The Paniolo Cottage or The Ohia Loft
We are located on the beautiful Hamakua Coast, at 3500 feet on the remote & privately owned Kukaiau Ranch. Day trip anywhere on the island and come home each night to the serenity that only a 29 acre property can offer. We have perfect sleeping weather here year around - no hotel noise, no coqui frogs. A large fire pit sits between the main house and the cottage and is open to all guests; an ideal location for star gazing.
A place where you can truly get away from it all. We are off the grid and living a self sustainable lifestyle with all the modern conveniences! Come visit!

About Terri Dolan
We like to say that this house found us! Our family was quite content living a block from Kailua Beach on Oahu. We were on vacation and looking at the possibility of purchasing a few acres to someday build a cabin on for weekends and retirement. After we saw this spectacular property we returned to the Oahu and neither one of us could stop thinking about it. This property spoke to both of us - we adjusted our lives to make this dream come true. The rest is history...
Tim and Terri Dolan have been married 27 years and are living their dream. Tim spent 20 years in the Marine Corps flying anything they would give him the keys for.. They have two children, Chelsea & Eric. Tim loves to work outside, exercise, read, go to the beach and paddle. Terri enjoys gardening and organically growing some of the food eaten on the ranch, all the ranch animals, reading, decorating, cooking and generally spoiling our guests. On her day off you can usually find her at the beach.
Terri Dolan purchased this cottage in 2012
