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.
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.
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.
