The cottage is built 6 feet above ground on the front side (with 14 stairs up to the front door) and at ground level on the back side. It is all wood and glass with open beam construction. It’s tucked into mostly native forest of Hawaiian Ohia and Hapu’u (Hawaii Tree Fern) that is glorious in the mountain sun. This little cottage has ten large picture windows to give it a beautiful, expansive, tree-top view of the surrounding trees and vibrant plant life. It has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a sitting room with an expansive outdoor view and a small bathroom with a tub/shower. There is an open veranda part way around the cottage as well as a back deck to relax and enjoy the late afternoon sun. The entire cottage is about 850 sq. ft. Very comfortable and spacious for two people.
There is a TV screen (no cable TV) and DVD player in the sitting room for you to enjoy movies in the evening after a day of exploring. There is a gas fireplace in the sitting room for great ambience and for those cold mountain evenings.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a 4-burner propane stove top, toaster oven, microwave oven, under-counter small size fridge and all basic kitchen utensils & supplies. We also provide the basic supplies in the pantry such as salt, pepper, organic olive oil, organic honey, sugar, organic coffee, tea bags and filtered drinking water.
This is our own retreat cottage. We love it. We hope you'll enjoy it and care for it as we do. It is a place for quiet contemplation and meditative retreat with a feeling of serenity both inside and outside. We want our guests to experience the magic of Hawaii.
Whether you decide to visit with us or not,
we send you our Aloha,
Richard and Candice
