About Michael and Rute Bighaus

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

Why Michael and Rute Bighaus chose Keaau

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

I enjoyed the cottage. It is decorated nicely and the property is beautiful. I was happy there was an air conditioner and fan. It is very private too.

wonderful

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived the place was clean and nicely furnished. The pillows left a bit to be desired, but we managed. We had a great time and enjoyed the peace and quiet each evening. Just a suggestion, directions on how to get the TV to work would have been helpful. I had to call the caretaker to come over and show us how to work it, since I am not familiar with Dish TV. Also I could not get the deadbolt locks to lock from the outside. I mentioned it to the man that came to collect the garbage, and he said not to worry about it, since there was someone coming in the day we left.
We enjoyed our stay and if we decide to go back to the area, we will stay again. The grounds are beautiful and very relaxing. Thanks for having us.

Hawaiian Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed our personal hawaiian hideaway. The fruit trees were a wonderment and delicious treat. The location was just right for visiting the Volcano National Park area. It was nice to come back to a clean, quiet, well equipped place after a long day of sightseeing. The space is just right for two but certainl would have been comfortable with another adult. A big thank you to our hosts for having started the AC before we arrived. Very thoughtful. Thanks!

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the review. Having the lights and AC on before you arrived was the idea of our cleaning lady, I will let her know how much you appreciated that little touch.
Please know that you are welcome to come back any time you wish.

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.
