Dragon Cabin is a new remodel and upgrade of a coffee worker's dwelling. Lots of windows and vaulted ceilings open to Kohala's famous trade winds give this 12V, off-grid, tropical hideaway a light and airy openness. Just under 400sq', there is a very roomie, Cal-King bed that sleeps two very comfortably.
There is a fully functional kitchen and propane refrigerator for home cooking.
There is an outdoor, hot-water shower attached and a toilet about 15' away.
The setting is usually incredibly tranquil with only the sounds of the many birds singing and the wind through the ironwoods. Sometimes when the ocean is rough you can hear waves crashing rocks not far away.
Sometimes during the day there are the sounds of a working coffee farm and on some nights it is necessary to run a generator located in a barn some distance from Dragon Cabin for about an hour.
Sometimes there's music.
Your hosts are father and son, Lance and Kanoa. Also on board to help you have an enjoyable stay are Becky and Brother Craig.
What a peaceful place. It was clean, the bed was very comfortable and Lance was great: personable, helpful, and flexible. We also got a chance to check out the Hawks Nest cabin and it looks even more fabulous with a totally in-the-trees feel and the coolest shower that's like an outdoor shower but with the convenience of one that's "indoors." Hawi is a really beautiful area and we would definitely book with Lance again if we're lucky enough to get back to the big island.
Well Equipped cabin, especially the Kitchen, we had everything we needed and enjoyed listening to the Rain AT night and feeling the Air through the Screened in Windows. IT was roomy very clean and comfy and close to hawi. We had no Problem Finding it or driving the dirt Road With our Nissan versa rental Car. Hot Water and electricity worked fine.
The Outdoor shower and the friedly dogs and surprisingly clingy hen Made the Farm Stay special for US. Great getaway and really quiet Glamping Experience.
Lance was easy to communicate with and available whenever we called. He has nice property close to Hawi. The Dragon Cabin is nice and has a simple kitchen with delicious coffee! We enjoyed sipping our coffee as we sat outside with the dogs and chickens watching the sunrise over the coffee farm. The proximity to Hawi and their quality restaurants was great.
Cabin had everything we needed. Lance is a wealth of information on the area. Enjoyed the canine welcoming committee.
This is a gem of a cabin, open and airy, and nestled in the shade away from everyday life. But it is also close enough to the little town Hawi that you can walk up there for a meal (several good restaurants, and a cute old timey feel) , and in the other direction you'll find trails that wind along the rugged beautiful coastline for miles and miles. You're only a few miles north of the gorgeous Pololu valley and about an hour from Hilo. The Kohala district is dry and mostly empty, the sandy swimming beaches are on the other side of the big island. If you just want to hang out on the beach, this may not be the place for you. But if you want to explore the many facets of the big island, this is a very nice place to do it from.
The cabin is minimalist -- not spartan, more like glamping. The bed is big and comfortable, the gas stove, hot water and quiet propane fridge provide the key conveniences. The outdoor toilet and shower give it a camping feel. We were there during a warm sunny spell -- I can imagine that these outdoor facilities might be a bit less endearing in the rain. It's gorgeous and dark at night, and the stars are glorious. Quiet, except for the animals noted in the other reviews.
Note that there are no outlets. The cabin is hardwired on a 12V system. You can charge your phone (bring your own cigarette lighter plugin and cable), but that's it. Wireless internet access, as noted in the other reviews, can be had in town, or via phone hotspot (though cell signal for Tmo was weak).
For us, it was just perfect.
