VACATION PARADISE - MINUTES FROM OCEAN

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

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.

Sharon A Fizer purchased this cottage in 2012

This is a great location, 15min. from Hilo airport. 600ft.elev. so you get to enjoy the trade winds. Not to hot not to cool. And minutes from everything.

Great stay!

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

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.

The great thing about this cottage is the central location. Within minutes (20 or so, depending on traffic of course) one can be kicking around Hilo, wandering through Pohala, or winding along the amazing and picturesque Puna backroads, en route to great snorkeling, swimming, and more.

The place itself, was clean and new looking. However, it kind of lacked any character. It was a place to sleep and cook. The corner lot location meant there was a bit of traffic noise and some sort of music player would have helped with this. There was a big TV and cable I guess, but we did not bother with that. I think Frank Zappa said it best, "a little bit cheesy, but nicely displayed."

Anyway. It was worth the money and we certainly had a great time exploring the area!

P.S. Make sure you are there over the weekend to catch the local farmer's market!

The property has everything you need for a couple wanting a great vacation. The house is extremely well kept and everything inside is like new. The location was great; it made it easy to explore the volcano park at night (a must see!), snorkel the tide pools, and visit the Mauna Kea Observatories. We also visited the green sand beach and cliff jumped at Ka Lae. Overall we had an excellent stay and vacation!!
