One Bedroom With Loft And 2 Bathrooms, Huge Lanai With 180 Views Of The Ocean
This romantic seaside cottage will steal your heart. Positioned in the small village of Milolii, (the LAST fishing village in Hawaii) in Captain Cook on TheBig Island.
Boasting superior views of the sea just a stones throw away from the ocean. This cottage sits on a 1/3 of an acre filled will lush tropical vegitation. There are 4 different types of mature mango trees, pineapples, bananas, dragon fruit, lemon, lime, orange, as well as varied fragrant plumeria to list just some of the lush landscaping for year round enjoyment. Multiple seating, lounging and amenities inside and out.
Take a short walk from the property to Da' Rock where you can find easy access to some of the best snorkeling on the island. Swimming with wild happy spinner dolphins from Da' Rock and other beaches located in close proximity to "POI*13", including a short hike to the sucluded Honomalino beach- make this remote location a special one of a kind Hawaii experience.
The closest black sand beach is just a 30 min hike. You will often find this "billionairs beach" with no one there. AMAZING!!!
You can stay in hotel filled spaces, go out to eat for each meal and hope to get a vacant spot on the beach for your vacation, or you can enjoy an entire home, views of the water from all over the house, private gardens, hammocks, gas BBQ, snorkel gear, coolers beach towels, movies, drinking water in a chilled cooler, even surf boards for use. The privacy of an entire home often less expensive per night, and more luxurious than a one room hotel with double beds!
If you want to experience Hawaii in an unpackaged way with MORE of the home benefits than are available with hotel accommodations, this place may just be for you!
The kitchen is fully equipped for even holiday style cooking including but not limited to specialty items like: vitamix, crockpot, baking dishes, rice maker, air popcorn maker, coffee grinder (in case you pick up some local coffee), coffee maker as well as french press, mixer and bowels, toaster, teapot and water cooler with instant hot water as well.
*We even provide fresh drinking water and reusable travel water jugs!
Feel like you're at home in a friends place on the beach, or you've located the most romantic, well planned out sanctuary on the Big Islands!
A great home base for exploration of the south side of the island. Sights like, Green Sand beach, Punaluu beach, Southpoint, Hookena, Oceanview Saturday swap meet, possibly a trip into Naalehu to see the forestlike trees, grab the best malasada at the famous Punaluu bakery and shop at the Wednesday farmers market downtown.
Not a place limited to showers and sleeping like a hotel, feel like you're a part of Hawaii.
Please note: the night life in Milolii is the amazing starry nights without light/sound polution. If you are looking for entertainment other than the show nature is putting on this location may be too remote for you.
Remember even though it's an island there is more diversity, varied environments and amazing things to see that it's nearly impossible to get to it all.
Drive around, enjoy the changing views, experience the aloha that makes this island so magic!

Amazing and Phenomenal Beach Cottage
I have traveled quite a bit and run my own VRBO, and this home is equipped with everything you could imagine and is absolutely meticulously kept and has a phenomenal view of the ocean!!!! It is in a quiet quaint little neighborhood. If you want a resort style busy vacation place, this is not it. If you want tranquility and one of the most cozy and comfortable homes that you can imagine-this IS your place. The diving is absolutely unbelievable as well!!! I highly recommend it needless to say and have already scheduled my return!!!
Very nice place
This was a very nice place to stay. It was beautifully maintained and had everything we needed. We loved the vitamix and made smoothies with tropical fruit every morning. We went to the black sand beach you can hike to nearby and there was a pod of dolphins that stayed for about 2 hours. People were snorkeling right next to them and the beach was very quiet and secluded. The road down to the cabin was long and windy and the nearest grocery store is about half an hour a way so be sure to stock up. Milolii doesn't have much vegetation and is mostly lava rock. It is nice if you want to go to the volcano because the drive isn't as long. I could see the location being disappointing if you're looking for convenience and don't want to drive a lot to get to places. The ocean view from the cabin is beautiful though and I loved the hammock to just sit and enjoy it. Overall I was very happy with my stay.
Mahalo and we are happy we could host your vacation on the Big Island.
Thank you also for the kind things mentioned about our property and the amenities.
We strive to make sure the home gives you everything you may need to enjoy your time in the comfort of a home on the ocean.
We would like to clarify some details for future guest.
This property is not on the beaten path, and like staying in other homes does require that you purchase your food/supplies prior to arrival, but is also remote from the hectic packaged costly resort/hotel stay saturated with tourism.
If you are planning on exploring a variety of the beauty the island has to offer- driving is going to be large factor for any vacationer regardless of sleeping location.
Often times the feel is, "It's an island- how much driving can there be?"
It is a very large island! (:
(taking over 6-8 hours if you were driving without stop all the way around)
The unique pleasures of swimming/snorkeling near wild dolphins and or the sound of the waves while sleeping isn't as readily available in the more commercial areas. Although grocery shopping and restaurant options in the main towns are.
The property is located on the flats of Milolii down the mountain a couple hundred feet from the water.
There are lava lots and previous flows evident as with a majority of the plots located in this area.
However, our pie shaped lot does have excessive mature vegetation while still allowing ocean views.
Including but not limited to over 6- 20 ft+ mango trees, mature vegetation surrounding the entire lot boasting native life, flowers, pineapples (and too much more to list) with multiple private areas for enjoyment outside as well.
Thank you for taking the time to give your insight and I hope that this further detail is helpful for future guests interested in making POI*13 a part of their special trip.
Awesome Island. Awesome part of the Island. Awesome house. Had a great time!
This place is awesome. It's a bit of a ways from conveniences, but if you want to get away from the touristy stuff, this is a great place. The cottage has a good ocean view and the neighborhood is quiet. The cottage is clean and well-equipped. The owners have stocked a few extra things since you are a bit of a ways from town: bottled water, extra toiletries, a few pantry staples, and so on. The owners reply quickly to any contact in case you have questions or need help. My only regret is that we did not stay longer!
This place is fantastic!
We only had the chance to stay here one night on a week long stay on the Big Island. It was, by far, the best place we stayed! It truly feels like home away from home. Tim and Jenn have done an amazing job keeping it simple and making it feel comfortable to use the house as if it was your own. Not to mention that they themselves are welcoming in a way that makes you feel like you are family. Wish we could move there to stay forever!!
-so close to the ocean you can hear the shore break all night
-the road to it? (Not really a con, the stay makes the trip down the hill worth every minute)
If it’s low key you are looking for in your stay, this is the place!!
just fantastic! house is better than pictures i feel...being so near ocean is just amazing and walkable to place people put boats in and swim and short drive to stunning white sand beaches...it was HOT...we went in sept and woah..with four fans going we were still hot and didn't cool down at night until late (found when we swam in ocean that really helped) but such a great deal this is- everything is labeled- yoga mats and a vitamix! that is why i rented this place lol! great place wonderful views!
