Perched above a spring-fed babbling brook on 20 private landscaped acres, the Creekside Cottage offers the peace, serenity, privacy and nature that will dissolve your city stress. Ten miles (15 minutes) from downtown Hilo, on the lush and scenic Hamakua Coast with ocean views.
Perfect for a single or couple seeking a quiet and romantic getaway. In addition to the bedroom upstairs, there's a sofa bed in the living room, so it can accommodate up to 4 guests.
1 full bathroom plus 1 half-bath.
Fully equipped kitchen.
There are no city lights to dim the night sky, and no traffic noise. A eucalyptus forest blocks the view of the road.
East Hawaii, the Hilo side, is the beautiful side of the island, where you'll want to spend your time when visiting the Big Island. And the Creekside Cottage is perfectly located for the most convenient access to all the spectacular sights and adventures Hawaii is famous for. (The west or Kona side is barren desert, and a 2-3 hour drive to the natural wonders.) The Creekside Cottage is just a few minutes from beautiful swimming and surfing beaches, spectacular waterfalls and botanical gardens. The most pristine snorkeling reefs and tide pools in the Pacific ocean are close by, on the easternmost point of the island. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park - with the active volcano, fascinating lava tubes, and hundreds of miles of hiking trails - is also on the East side and 45 minutes from the Cottage. Stunning Akaka Falls is 5 miles away. World-famous Waipio Falls is 1 hour to the north.
We're in our 60's, and this is intended to be our retirement home. Until then we're making it available for others to enjoy. Tom is a lawyer and law professor specializing in the needs of Native Americans and indigenous peoples. Marcy is a musician/songwriter and church music director, and retired psychotherapist. We're active outdoor adventurers and love wilderness backpacking, and live in the mountains of New Mexico. Though the rental income on the Hawaii property doesn't cover all the expenses, it helps a lot - so we thank you for renting it and helping us make our retirement dream come true!
We've been visiting Hawaii 2 or 3 times a year for many years. We love all the islands, but the Big Island is our favorite because it provides so much variety - from high mountain tops to snorkel reefs, to wilderness hikes, to the active volcano. On every vacation, we always spent a couple of days looking at real estate, until our broker was like family. When we first saw this property in Dec 2010, we were riveted by its beauty. We felt instantly at home, and when we stood gazing at the lush green valley and sparkling ocean, we both knew this was the place we'd been searching for.
Having spent most of our lives in the southwestern desert, two streams and our own private waterfall is nothing short of heaven. And where else can we pick our own oranges and papayas for breakfast, and avocados for our salad? The serenity and peace, the openness of the landscape, the out-in-the-country feeling, are soothing to the heart and soul.
