We bought this property over 10 years ago, it was nothing but lava rock and jungle. We had it cleared and we planted over 100 palms and 50 fruit trees. A few years later we started to build and now this is what is here.

Michael and Rute Bighaus purchased this cottage in 2002

We loved the location, the neighbors are very friendly and love talking story. It rains but not as much as other areas in the Hilo area. The ocean is not far, close enough for an evening walk.

We bought two one acres lots so we would have plenty of room. The trees are producing tasty fruit which is free for the picking. There is nothing like fresh lemonade or tree ripened banana's.

amazing family retreat!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 7 year old twins and I just got back from a stay at Royal Palm Acres. We LOVED it there! My kids didn't want to leave in the mornings because they were so excited about picking breakfast from the beautiful property. The cottage was perfect and felt like home. Mike and Rute were great. Very responsive and helpful. We would recommend there lovely place to couples or small families. We can't wait to come back. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a good time. Sounds like the kids had a good time also picking fruit. We know there is nothing like picking fresh fruit in the morning. Please come back whenever you can.

Wonderful Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My wife & I had the pleasure of staying at this home for eight days. We had originally booked four nights but wanted to extend our time in paradise. The home and grounds are lovely. We would definitely stay again next time we are on the big island.

Michael was an excellent host and helped us with any questions we had. Mahalo, Bob & Judy

This is a very nice open one room getaway in the country! Located close enough to explore Hilo, Volcano NP and Pahoa area. The cottage is on a beautiful piece of property. It is new and clean and has everything you may need. Bed is super comfortable. A nice covered porch with hammock. Owner was super communicative before our trip. Place is probably best suited for a couple, but you could get four folks in if you like being cozy.

Thanks for your kind words, we are happy you had a good time at our place, we would love for you to come back anytime you wish. October and November are great months if you love sweet and juicy star fruit, the trees are always loaded during those months however we do have star fruit at other times but not as much.
