We've been residents of the Big Island for over 30 years and have settled into the quaint community here in North Kohala. We enjoy swimming, snorkeling, hiking, and gardening in this beautiful area.

North Kohala surpasses other wonderful places we've lived on the Big Island with its lush, green beauty and peaceful country atmosphere.

We love the pristine coastal views and gorgeous sunsets seen from the property. The sound of the ocean here is

very calming.

PIECE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
Back for our second stay at the secluded North Kohala cottage. This time we explored many of the historical parks and did some adventure tours. The cottage is so well located, with easy access to the darling towns of Hawi and Kapa'au, plus a scenic drive to Waimea. Kona and Hilo (driving down the gorgeous Hamakua Coast) are a bit further, but still easily accessible. Figure on a full day to go down to the Volcano National Park. Wonderful hikes and don't miss the beautiful art gallery. The cottage has everything we need, lots of storage, enough appliances to cook a nice meal and great relaxing spots. The Innkeepers are solicitous, but not intrusive and having a washer and dryer available was wonderful. Personally, we love the geckos with their little frog faces and pretty colors and never mind seeing them in the garden. This is our piece of heaven and we will be back next year for sure!

QUIET AND GOOD LOCATION TO SETUP AS A HOME BASE TO DRIVE AROUND THE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
I was reluctant to stay at the cottage when I first arrived since there's a lack of restaurants open on a Sunday around in the area and was quite moody after getting off an airplane. I gave it a chance and I fell in love with the location very quickly with its quiet surroundings to the clean interior. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioner was the biggest selling point. The owner was friendly. The only thing I didn't like about the place, which was more to do with just being in Hawaii was the gecko's where one of them got into the cottage and I was forced to take a garbage can and smash it to death as I wasn't sure if the reptile was poisonous. I appreciate the owner putting the dis-infectant to try to stop the gecko's from getting near the door. As a single traveller from the big city, I did find charm in the location over time so the location would be suited for a single traveller or a couple for sure.

Owner's Response: I was surprised at Ben's difficulty with encountering small geckos during his stay on our property. However, once he understood that they are completely harmless, and run away from people, he seemed reassured. The cottage is tightly screened and geckos usually do not get inside. They are very small and shy, and are green with orange spots. Most guests seem to consider them cute if they encounter one. I'm glad Ben enjoyed his surroundings on our property, his experience staying in the cottage, and the island as a whole.

HEAVEN ON EARTH!

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time we've stayed in the North Kohala area. We've always stayed in Kapoho, thinking there wasn't much to see or do on the other side of the island. Wow, were we wrong about that! First of all, Christine's cottage is a wonderful place to stay. The pictures are very accurate of what to expect when you arrive, but when you see it in person, with the beautiful flowers, the view of the ocean, bamboo lined driveway and pastures that surround the property, it's even better in person. We were frequently greeted by cows and a couple of horses, as they traveled through the pastures.
I was concerned about the kitchen area being sufficient for a month stay, but I need not have worried. Between the two burner hot plate and microwave, we had no trouble cooking full meals. There's also a toaster oven, which we never used. We had most meals at the cottage, but did enjoy the Bamboo Restaurant in Hawi and Ruth's Chris in The Shops of Mauna Lani, plus a few other local establishments. The cottage was very clean, light and airy, it even had air conditioning, but we never did use it. The closet was surprisingly large, so between that and the drawers, we had all the room we needed to unpack our things. Having access to a washer and dryer was a definite plus.
From the cottage we traveled the entire island, taking in farmers markets in Hawi, Waimea, Hilo and Pahoa. Pololu Lookout is a short distance from the cottage, has incredible views and the hike down to the valley ends at a beautiful beach. There is a small beach park a couple miles from the cottage, we visited it several times, a nice place to have lunch and take in the beauty, such as the monk seal pup born there. We visited Volcano Park, Puuhonua O Honaunau Park, Lapakahi State Historical Park, Lava Tree State Park along with a few other ones. We did a Fair Winds snorkel cruise (highly recommend), visited several beaches, Spencer Beach park being one of our favorites and it had decent snorkeling. Another spot was Mahukona, which is accessed via a ladder off a pier in North Kohala, and the snorkeling was pretty good there too. We found excellent whale watching sites right from the highway in North Kohala. Another interesting find was the Big Island Bee company, if you like honey, check this place out.

Christine was a pleasure to work with and we definitely recommend a stay at her cottage. The next time we visit the Big Island, we hope this little piece of paradise will be available! Mahalo!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad these visitors really enjoyed their stay with us. They were great guests. We do provide a countertop oven that seems to meet the needs of most of our guests.

NICE LITTLE COTTAGE IN THE HEART OF KOHALA

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is well-situated for all your touring of the Kohala area, and it's situated on very nice grounds with a large lawn and a hedgerow of non-native bamboo. This place is beautifully decorated and has nice big windows for the sun to pour in in the morning. It's outfitted with several kitchen appliances, which we used to make an elaborate avocado dinner. The owner was very nice and accommodating, and she alerted us to when a landscaper was coming to the property. While we were here, we visited the ancient Hawaiian Mo'okini Heiau (heiau means temple), which was built in 480 AD, and later altered around 1100-1300 AD. We also saw the birthplace of Kamehameha I at the northernmost tip of the island. The Pololu Valley is another great place to visit, where the northeastern trade winds sends crashing waves non-stop against the shoreline, and we saw the savanna-like landscape of Lapakahi State Historical Park. Snorkeling at Mohukona Bay and getting some ice cream at Kawaihae are nice things to do on a hot day. I recommend driving over the old volcano of Kohala to see the landscape dominated by non-native ironwoods and cattle pastures, but more so, you should have some excellent coffee at the Kohala Coffee Mill in Hawi.
