Pepeekeo House Rental Photos and Description

This newly built, beautiful home offers 1 bdr, 1 bath and a spacious lanai.

Ideally located along the the scenic and tranquil shoreline of Pepeekeo Point, this beautiful carrriage house offers everything you need to create the ideal dream experience of true Hawai'i. What a perfect retreat for couples of all ages!

This amazing carriage house features incredible ocean views from nearly every room. In addition, a wide and spacious lanai offers the ideal setting to enjoy morning coffee or an afternoon drink while watching passing boats, dolphins or whales in season.

The home features one bedroom with a queen bed along with a comfortable, full size futon sleeper in the living area. A new, full size washer/dryer are contained within the cottage's laundry room for your personal use.

Large spacious windows provide amazing views and allow comfortable trade winds to flow throughout. The lanai (balcony) of the home is very large and offers a great place to sit and relax or enjoy your meals.

This newly built home was designed to take advantage of not only ocean views but incredible views of towering 13,000 foot Mauna Kea as well.

At over 900 square feet, the carriage house is the perfect fit for couples.

Satellite television and free Wifi are also available.

The carriage house is complete with a spacious kitchen, full bath and washer/dryer.

Guests may relax all day in the cozy home or walk mere steps to the amazing waters of the Pacific. Dolphins and Sea Turtles are nearly a daily sighting with humpback whales frequenting the waters from January through April. The home is located in a quiet, gated neighborhood along the scenic Hamakua Coast where the homes are spread over 5, 10 and 20 acre parcels.

While we live in the adjacent main house, we also understand and respect the privacy of our guests. We love to personally greet each guests, provide a very brief tour and then allow you to relax and enjoy. We have no children but do have two, friendly and loving labs. They basically lay all day on our lanai but occasionally have the need to be petted or have a ball thrown :) We have a few sheep in two separate paddocks that appear to enjoy their oceanfront accommodations.

The quaint town of Pepeekeo Point is ideally located only 11 miles from Hilo Town. It is close enough to go for dining or trips to the famous Hilo Farmer's Market but also far enough away to be tranquil and serene. The town of Hilo also offers modern shopping conveniences of stores such as Target, Walmart and a new, large Safeway.

We are located in an extremely nice, gated area where everyone knows your name and loves to stop and 'talk story.'

REGARDING CHILDREN, DUE TO FACT THAT WE ARE A WORKING FARM AND ARE VERY CLOSE TO THE OCEAN PALI (CLIFF) WE DO NOT FEEL AS THOUGH THE HOME IS SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 14.

About Steve and Julie Cox

Steve and I moved to Hawaii in 2013. Our only regret? Why didn't we make this move sooner! We fell in love with the Hamakua Coast and the Pepeekeo Point area on our first visit. We are close enough to all the conveniences of a large city and beautiful beaches however so enjoy the tranquility of our small farm life. Like most here in Hawaii, we spend the majority of our time outside with our two friendly dogs, Bracken and Lily, enjoying amazing ocean views and a year round comfortable climate. We love having guests and sharing the amazing things that Hawaii has to offer. Therefore, we decided to build the Carriage House Cottage for couples or small families to come enjoy Hawaii at a very reasonable costs.

Steve and Julie Cox purchased this house in 2012

Why Steve and Julie Cox chose Pepeekeo

The Pepeekeo Point area of the Hamakua Coasts offered incredible views, is close to everything and reminded us so much of the happy childhood memories on our grandparents' farms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our Guestbook:

We had the privilege of being the first guest in this amazing cottage. From the peaceful morning sunrises, amazing views and perfect central location we could not have asked for more. We so enjoyed our morning coffee on the lanai almost as much as we did our evening glass of wine while sitting on the edge of the ocean. At least 50 spinner dolphins swam by on our first night!

Mahalo to Julie and Steve for providing us with such a memorable getaway. We will surely be back soon!

You must visit this place!!! You must see the sunrises!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently celebrated my retirement and her birthday. She had a special request to see sunrises during her stay. After searching over several hundred properties on VRBO, I found this amazing getaway about ten minutes from Hilo and near the Akaka waterfalls. This property delivered in every way. The carriage house was new and immaculate. From the living area we enjoyed the cool breeze and the beautiful views. The bedroom was spacious and the bed was comfortable. In the bathroom the shower had great water pressure. The guest Ohana was perfect for our needs. Our favorite feature of this quaint get away were the spectacular sunrises each morning from the lanai that never failed to take our breath away. We are greatfull to the owners Steve and Julie for opening their home and sharing these stunning sunrises and ocean views with us.

Owners Steve and Julie are truly friendly, kind, down to earth and the most gracious of hosts and treated us like family. They are knowledgeable of Hawaii and the surrounding area. They had great sight seeing and dinner recommendations. We greatly enjoyed our time in Pepeekeo. We can not wait to return. We felt soooo lucky to have stayed in their lovely home.

Owner's Response: Julie and I feel so lucky to have had Gracie and Ali as guests of the Carriage House. We truly enjoyed their company and friendship. They are both full of Aloha! Ali captured some incredible sunrise photographs that we hope to post on our listing soon.

We look forward to their return to the Island of Hawaii and hope that one day they will return as our guests.

Beware, you too may be bitten by the "Hawaii forever bug" if you stay here

Beware, you too may be bitten by the "Hawaii forever bug" if you stay here
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were literally awe-struck when we arrived at the property where the oceanfront carriage house is. You feel like when you get out of your car, Mr. O'Rourke and Tattoo should be there saying "Welcome to Fantasy Island". It's truly fabulous! There is beauty all around and ocean views right outside on your lanai, which is spacious and breezy. We walked along the property and felt like we were on a private island of our own. It is difficult to describe how peaceful, joyful and comfortable you feel all day, every day there. We could never say enough wonderful things about this incredible find that my husband found on the internet. We loved every minute of our week-long stay so much that we now have been bitten by the "Hawaii forever bug" and are planning a future that includes living in Hawaii permanently. You will never find a more beautiful, comfortable, private and peaceful vacation spot in the U.S. Everything was perfect, immaculate and charming. We're spoiled now and are reluctant to tell all of our friends back home about how amazing this location and everything about it is. We really don't want the competition it would create if all our friends knew what we know about this awesome place. We just can't say enough great things about this love carriage house!

While located on an island, the things to do on Hawaii Island are endless. Where else can one experience snow at 13,000 feet and then make the short drive to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Whether your idea of a vacation is relaxing on the beach, touring a botanical garden hiking to a 400 foot waterfall, there is surely a daily event to entertain you while in Hawaii.
