About Andy or Bob

Love for NATURE & Gardening and a need to be near the sea are the reasons we became stewards of this property. We are in our 50-60's, actively involved in both Puna and San Francisco communities, and hoping to spend more time in Puna as we age.

Andy or Bob purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Andy or Bob chose Pahoa

We have been vacationing in Puna, Hawaii for over eleven years renting a friend's home. After becoming attached to the native culture, tropical landscape, and outdoor activities, we decided to build our own home. We designed and constructed the cottage based on our eleven years of vacation living, culling features from the many homes we saw in the area and tailoring them to our Hawaiian lifestyle pursuit of comfortable simplicity.

What makes this cottage unique

Steep terrain reveals spectacular 170 degree view of the Pacific ocean and exposes the property to gentle trade winds. Proximity of rain forest ensures a symphony of night sounds and a remote, jungle feel at your doorstep.

All wood construction (cedar walls and roof, eucalyptus floors, Ipe deck) is rare in the tropics. You'll enjoy the woody fragrance.

Guestbook comments from the manager

By: Kim UIf you are looking for an off-the-beaten-path experience in Hawaii, then this is the place to do it! The house is located in a beautiful spot, with lovely veiws over the ocean, a few miles away. Privacy, solitude, romance. Well-equipped, well designed interior with comfortable furnishings. The deck is a great place to have morning coffee, or a romantic dinner. The area is distinctive - no over-commercialism here!! Pahoa is a funky little town, and Hilo is a favourite of mine. Bob and Andy have stocked the book shelves with great reading material and information so you can find fun things to do within easy distances. Thanks for sharing this lovely cottage with other adventurous travelers!

A rare treat

  • 5 of 5

This place has to be seen to be comprehended. I was really impressed by how meticulously the house is constructed; not a single detail was overlooked. It's also decorated and arranged with incredbly good taste. The queen size bed faces to the southeast towards two oversized sliding glass doors, offering a broad view of untouched jungle to wake up to. Facing east provides a panoramic view of the ocean. This is truly one of my favorite places on earth, and I have no doubt that I'll be coming back. Bob and Andy were very helpful and accomodating as I made my reservation on short notice.

The abundance of fresh fruit in the kitchen on my arrival was an especially nice touch. I feel that I got much more than I paid for.

A perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect private getaway for my partner and me while exploring the Pahoa area. We couldn't get enough of sitting on the porch chairs and watching the sun rise, doing yoga while over looking the ocean, or watching movies securely inside during a storm. This cottage is well built, beautifully designed, lovingly cared for, and the perfect simple escape while enjoying the Puna district. Easy access to town, to the lava pools, tide pools, champagne ponds, and red road.

REAL Hawaiian vacation

  • 5 of 5

We ate outside at night after spending the whole day looking around the island. The frogs are amazing singers. The turkeys got some of your lawn mostly because they did it while we weren't there. As soon as they saw us, they left. Thank you for your hosopitality. Sincerely. Jean Gaumer.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at this lovely home / property with abundant surprises as we explored the grounds. This was a great off-the-beaten-path launching spot for all of the Pahoa / Hilo / Volcano activities. We hit a rain storm, which complicated things a bit, but felt great to have this comfortable home to relax in and enjoy the rain-forest scenery of the BI east side.

Incredible private getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came over after a couple days in Kona and loved the remote feel and incredible landscaping on this beautiful property. Everything we needed was there and the views at sunrise were spectacular. Close to Pahoa and loads of attractions, Lava Tree State Park and the tide pool in Kapoho are all a short drive. The weather couldn't have been better either, just a light shower the first night and it was very soothing. Anyone wanting a private romantic getaway should book this place now! Thanks again!
