Overview

About the property

Lovely cottage on 8 acres with wide open vistas

The house has 1 bedroom and a designated sleeping area on an enclosed lanai. It sleeps 2 with extra sleeping arrangements for 2 children or familiar adults. This charming rental is truly a unique way to experience Hawaii with expansive ocean views and wide open spaces. This little house has personality plus with cathedral ceilings, warm lighting and a large wrap around lanai. The lanai on two sides is enclosed with windows from floor to ceiling. Dining is stunning with views of fields and tropical trees to the Pacific. The house sits on eight acres so there is privacy and quiet. Sliding glass doors and many windows offer a sense of being indoor-outdoor. There are no stairs to navigate. All is kept clean.

There is 1 bathroom, and as often in Hawaii homes, there is the option of an outdoor shower with a colorful garden to provide privacy.

The surrounding area is lush and beautiful. The quiet winding roads are perfect for long walks through farmlands, flowers, coffee, guava trees. In some spots both the mountain Mauna Kea and the ocean can be seen. Wild pheasants and turkeys even a few peacocks scurry along the roads.

The location is a central stepping off point to explore the island -- the volcano to the east and world class beaches to west less than an hour away. The historic Honokaa Town and gorgeous Wiapio valley are nearby and Kalopa Park created to protect native species is just 4 miles away.

There are beach chairs, snorkel gear, swimming noodles, boogie board, and beach towels provided.

A fenced in area adjoining the lanai is available for visiting pets to enjoy.

The pond feature has been emptied and now contains potted orchids. This is to minimize mosquitos due to recent related problems on the island.

I want to go back

  • 5 of 5

I somehow missed the message asking me to write a review from my stay in Dec 2016. This place is incredible--even better than the photos. Next trip to Big Island, I will be there. The lanai has floor to ceiling windows and you can see the stars like you wouldn't believe, while lying in bed on the lanai. I remember that vividly. I felt like I was glamping. SUCH a charming cottage with everything you could possibly need. We had lots of clouds, so the ocean view was obstructed most of the time, but when it wasn't, it was wonderful (too far to hear it, though). Jane is amazing, as well. She went way out of her way to be kind to us and I really enjoyed talking with her. Lilo was my [outdoor] vacation kitty--a real dog-cat. It is somewhat remote, but if you're someone going to Big Island and not staying in Kailua (aka Kona), that's probably what you're looking for. Can't wait to go back.

We loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this private, secluded cottage for our stay on the big island. Jane provided us with great information about the property and travel tips for the island, the amenities were great (good wifi and hot water!), and the location was great for us.

Being at a higher elevation meant cooler evenings, but very comfortable for sleeping and awesome sunny mornings for coffee in the lanai. It was a bit of a drive to get to most places, but that is part of its charm. It was close to Waimea to grab any groceries we needed.

The cottage was clean, had everything we needed to cook, and was a great place to make home for the week while we were there.

Thank you for your hospitality, Jane!

Perfect retreat

We spent 3 days here and found it incredibly serene, refreshing and calming to the soul! Great little retreat for a writing project that I was working on. Nice amenities, beautiful grounds & absolutely lovely caretaker. Wonderful experience and look forward to returning! Mahalo nui loa Jane!

It was absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three nights on our honeymoon and it was perfect! It was a perfect location to explore the north side of the island. The cottage had everything required to make your own meals which was a a huge plus. Would certainly return!

Peaceful, quiet, and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

This was our favourite rental of four we we stayed at during our month on Big Island. Charming is the perfect word to describe this delightful and private spot. Jane was the perfect host ensuring everything was running perfectly at all times.

The kitchen and bathroom had everything we could possibly have needed along with washer and dryer on site. We felt instantly at home here and loved sleeping on the glassed in side Lanai with bright moonlight shining in the spacious yard. We especially enjoyed the birdsong starting up every morning with our favourite Hamakua coffee!

Love the cooler evenings at this elevation and rain overnight.

Certainly hope we can stay here again for a longer spell. Many thanks to Jane and the Potters wishing you all the best!
