Awake to the sound of the song bird in the morning. You will love the real peace of being close to nature while staying at our Puna Rainforest Cottage. We are located at 1200 ft elevation so our temperatures at night are always cool and very comfortable. With the beach only 15 minutes away you can have the best of both worlds - sunny weather and restful rainforest. We are located near the Puna Forest Reserve and are surround by hundreds of acres of ohia forests.
We have a suite (2 room) cottage that sleep up to four persons with a queen bed and two twin beds, a full bath and a small kitchenette (mini-fridge, gas range, pots and pans and dishes). Our cottage has a full lanais (porch) with a distant ocean views. We have a common area with a propane BBQ grill, and have free wireless internet, suitable for checking email and websites.
You will love the tropical decor and accents and will be comfortable for a night or for a week's stay or longer.

We are the former owners of Waterfalls Inn B&B (Hilo, Hawaii) and enjoy hosting guests and sharing our slice of paradise with them! Our Hilo B&B was selected as one of the top ten in the USA in 2004 by Tripadvisor. We hope you enjoy staying with us in the rainforest as much as you liked Waterfalls Inn!
We are located in the most peaceful part of the Big Island, yet only 3 miles to Pahoa and only 15 miles to the beach. We are located 22 miles from the Hilo (ITO) Airport, and 95 miles from the Kona (KOA) airport.
Starry skies at night, crisp tropical mornings with a morning rainfall, rainforest sounds to lull you to sleep. Unplug and unwind!
