About the property

1BR Unclassified Vacation Rental Hilo, Hawaii USA

Escape to Paradise. Our four comfortable, family-style cottages in the beautiful Puna district are perfect for a family that likes to explore. They're close to black sand beaches, an active volcano, great hiking, and spectacular waterfalls.

The fully-equipped cottages are on a four-acre tropical estate, surrounded by graceful palms, assorted fruit trees, and wild orchids. A regulation tennis court, a 40-foot lap pool, and the mini playground may be used by guests.

The nearby village of Pahoa offers unique shopping, and a choice of reasonably priced ethnic restaurants. Your hosts, long-time residents, are happy to share their knowledge of the area.

Live an Hawaiian style vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cyndie and Michael's place for 5 days. They are fantastic persons and they are more than happy to share with their guests the paradise they have been building over the years. Everything is clean and well maintained. We are a family of 4 with two kids (9 and 13) and everyone enjoyed the pool, the tennis court and the company of the animals on place. The Puna district is a great place to discover and the Paradise Park allow you to relax after a day of visiting. Before going to the east coast of Big Island, I was worried about his rainy reputation. After being there, I confirm Cyndie's words that the rain that falls during nights and early on mornings is God's blessing that permit the lush vegetation.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 10 days at one of these charming cottages. But I could easily spend a year. The cottages are at the end of the road so there is no traffic. The cottage was fully equipped with many little touches that made it feel like home. I told Cindy I felt like a rock star with my own pool and tennis court! It's a terrific place to travel from to see the island, and Cindy will point you to many destinations that aren't in the guide books. Be sure to check out all the farmer's markets. I loved all the birds in the trees - they sang all day long and into the evening. I would return in a heartbeat!

Maku'u...Vacation in Paradise

Mahalo for your interest in our cottages. May we suggest an Escape to Paradise...If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of touristy areas, we invite you to stay with us for a taste of rural island life.

You will find us on the eastern, and more lush, side of the Big Island of Hawaii, just 20 miles south of Hilo (between Kea'au and Pahoa in Hawaiian Paradise Park). We are centrally located, an excellent base for visiting the world’s most active volcano, lovely botanical gardens, thermal hot pools, black sand beaches, tropical rainforests, spectacular waterfalls and much more. It is just minutes to picturesque lava cliffs perfect for whale watching and turtle sightings, to little known hiking trails, or to the historic village of Pahoa with its quaint shops and choice of ethnic restaurants. Our family, long time residents living on site, will be very happy to point you in exciting directions.
