Pahoa Cottage Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom, one bath cozy cottage

Aloha and welcome to Honu Cottage, a place to relax, enjoy and have fun year around.

Whether coming to the island looking for adventure or a relaxing vacation Honu Cottage can meet your needs. Only minutes away from one of the few active volcano's on the planet you can sometimes catch a glimpse of the glow in the sky from the flowing lava field. It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the cool trade winds on a hot day while reading a book or enjoying the ocean views. Or if you are looking for more adventure there are many options close by: Kehena Black Sand Beach which is visited by spinner dolphins year round and humpback whales in the winter months, Kapoho tide pools which is one of my favorite spots on the island to go snorkeling, Mackenzie Park where you can explore a lava tube, Green Lake which has a great hike through the jungle and beautiful views from the mountain, and naturally heated thermal warm pool.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About Sharon A Fizer

I have worked in construction all my adult life. My wife and I are retiring shortly and want to make Hawaii our new home. This is why we bought a home in Hawaii so we can enjoy the clean tropical weather. We also want other people to have the opportunity to enjoy this as well and decided to use our home as a vacation rental till that time. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we have when we have been on the Big Island in Hawaii.

VERY COMFORTABLE, GOOD LOCATION, VERY CUTE LITTLE HOUSE.

  • 4 of 5
Honu Cottage was perfect for my family of 4. Very comfortable. Plenty of pillows and blankets for everyone. Very new/modern furnishings & decor. Wifi & satellite tv was a LIFE SAVER!!! ;-)
Only tricky thing for us was the catchment water. Be sure to bring your own bottled water for drinking & making your own ice (also bring your own ice cube trays)or, just buy a bag of ice too.
Also…. LOVE the night lights placed very thoughtfully around the house! THANK YOU SHARON! Aloha Nui Loa! ~The Araki Ohana

Nice, Inexpensive Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5
The house was lovely, clean, and comfortable.

Our only complaint was the traffic noise. I had read prior reviews that mentioned the noise, but I did underestimate it. The first couple of nights were fairly restless....however, once we got used to the constant traffic, things improved.

Sharon was great to work with and if you're from the city, you probably won't even notice the cars ;)

We were very impressed with this sweet cottage. It was amazingly clean. Smelled good. No bugs. Lots of room. Great kitchen. Exactly like the photos.
Access to the cottage was a breeze and it's location was central and great. Because, let's face it, it is a big island and you have to be prepared to drive a bit no matter where you go. Being central is a good thing.
Our only minor "negative" is a bit of road noise in the living space in the morning. But, it was not noticeable in the bedroom to interrupt sleep. Loved the forest sounds at night.
The owners were wonderful to work with. They were very accommodating and made sure our needs were met.
We can see this property growing and just becoming more comfortable as they continue to add to it.
It is a great value for it's price.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. It was great. We are working towards a way to block the road noise with plantings and fence in the future. I agree it is a little noisy in the morning but as you said with the bedroom in the back away from the road it does not affect your sleep. We plan to address this issue as time allows.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at the Honu Cottage. Everything was just as promised / shown in the photos. Pretty much everything you need is there for use. We had a bit of confusion with the door access code at the start, but got that resolved in a couple hours.

The home is a great location for exploring the Volcanoes National Park - we spent two days at the park. There was quite a bit of construction and the road in and out of the area got quite backed up, especially at peak times (rush hour). Not sure if that is normal or just because of the construction. We found that avoiding peak times on the road saved us from sitting in traffic.

Also a great location to explore Puna, the tide pools, beach park and lava tree monument.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It is good to hear that you had everything you needed for your vacation. I do understand about the road construction but they are widening the highway for better flow of traffic, not a forever thing. Hope your experience will bring you back to stay with us in the future.

Two weeks of paradise

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the cottage with all the comforts of home. We liked listening to the new stereo in the evening while sitting outside in the sitting area. Tiki lights were lite with a romantic feel. Enjoyed exploring of the island, snorkeling in the tide pools and going to the many beaches. Driving Saddle Back Road was the most beautiful scenery and seeing the volcano at night was wonderful.
