Thank you for the great stay! The cottage was nice and cozy. Our children enjoyed the swim in the pool! Fantastic views, sunrise was spectacular even in the rain! Beautiful water fall, such a treat to see. Kids liked seeing all of the animals. Thank you. Leina and Keith

This entire ranch cottage property is pretty much perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here Sept 5--10 and again Sept 14-19. We have stayed in more than ten VRBO units on Maui and Hawaii. It's a private and peaceful rural location about seven minutes from Hilo. The setting, surrounded by green pastures, horses, chickens and dogs was exactly what we were looking for - The sweeping ocean view (sunrises), waterfall and pool are pretty awesome too. Everything about the cottage was great...fast wifi, full size frig, ceiling fans and a covered porch with a huge view. The Zolls are excellent hosts. Forget those condos and units attached to the back of someone's house and try this great rental property!

This is an amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

A private cottage surrounded by beauty. Private waterfall with pool to swim in a 3 minute walk from the door. Beautiful sunrises. Three little friendly dogs, two of whom were happy to sleep in our bed for two nights. One of the best experiences in my life....except for the rooster, he's noisy :)

Level entry shower and no stairs from the back door was also a bonus.

No air conditioning so bedroom can be quite hot ;)

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was amazing! It was charming and rustic with unbelievable views out to the ocean. It was a wonderful break from city life and my family loved seeing the horses and goats right out the window. We felt like we were far out in the country but had the convenience of driving a short distance to everything in Hilo. Our kids loved swimming in the beautiful pool. Relaxing at the cottage was a vacation in itself and we would love to stay there again!

Real gem!!

  • 5 of 5

All the earlier reviews are true!!

We stayed 5 nights in the cottage. Although the owners were in Europe we had a great time. The waterfall was a bonus that we enjoyed every day. The view and all the animals made the experience perfect.
