About Terri & Bill Hughes

Aloha we are Bill & Terri, originally from the Philadelphia area. Bill was stationed on Oahu in the military many years ago, and is a retired trucker. I am currently an accountant for a property management company. We renewed our wedding vows on this very island in 2005. That is how the dream started. We are now semi retired living in paradise. Through VRBO we were able to visit the islands every year affordably before moving here. We want to make the same thing possible for you. Come share the Aloha with us!

Terri & Bill Hughes purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Terri & Bill Hughes chose Hawaii

After many years of traveling to Hawaii we chose this property for the quiet and comfortable elevation in a newer neighborhood. Our home is in a new development with underground utilities, so no ugly power lines to spoil the view. It is in close proximity to shopping, dining, and roads that will lead you in any direction, no matter where on the island you want to travel; yet not in the hustle and bustle of town. And it is only a 10 minute drive to the airport, so when you arrive after a long days travel you are only moments away from relaxation instead of half hour drive or more to the hotel. And when you finally do have to say aloha, you can spend those extra precious moments right here enjoying paradise.

What makes this apartment unique

Very clean newer home in desirable neighborhood, for an affordable price. Owner operated, no outside vendors to deal with, your concerns are ours. Smoking is permitted only on outside Lani. Complimentary Kona Coffee and Kona natural soap is supplied. Beautiful view of coast line and only minutes from the airport with a great location to all activities to the north and south ends of the island. For the days you want to just relax there is a comfortable lani for you to enjoy the gentle breeze, beautiful garden and listen to the birds singing. Never too hot or too cold here, after a warm day at the beach you can come home to the Ohana and the weather is perfect.

My wife and I have been vacationing on the Big Island for about 10 years now. We have always stayed in different rentals, just for the experience. Next time, we are coming back to Bill and Terri's. Their Ohana is clean, bright and comfortable. The patio area is fantastic. Great for your morning coffee, to bbq your burgers or just relax. You can also enjoy the beautifully landscaped yard. Bill and Terri are great hosts and happy to share their knowledge of the Island. It was a real pleasure staying there and an easy recommendation. Mahalo for a great time!

The best place to stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

It was amazing how this unit was clean and furnished with all you need for vacation. It was very convenient that this place is only 5mins from Airport and 15mins from Downtown. Especially owner who lives in second floor of this house was welcoming and very kind to us. I would recommend this place if you want to stay somewhere quiet and safer. I would love to come back here for next trip in Kona again.

I am a contractor who works on construction equipment. My stay at Cozy & Quiet was the best yet. The accommodations had every thing I could possibly need. I keep odd hours, leaving early and returning late. The private entrance and secure parking were great. Bill and Terrie were a great help when I needed to have some parts shipped to their address. They are extremely helpful and accommodating. I look forward to bringing my wife over and spending some time off and will definitely be staying with Bill and Terrie.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Bernie for your 5 star review. You were actually the first one that had to use the work area in our garage for repairs to equipment and other things. Your review adds another dimension to what we have to offer at our Ohana for our contractor friends. We hope to see you and your wife on your next VACATION visit to the Big Island!!! We will give you a discount as a return customer. A hui hoi

First visit to Hawaii

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. From arrival to departure Terri and Bill were the perfect hosts. The space was very clean and every need was met and then some. A backpack was even left hanging in the closet for guests to use. And very nice beach items were provided (chairs, boogie boards, snorkels, umbrella, etc. ) We especially loved the lanai and used that space the most. It had great seating and the scenery was peaceful and pretty. We were even allowed to pick our own prized pineapple which takes over a year to grow!! Please note if you are given this honor please save the crown for Bill to replant. That was our only regret, not knowing to save the crown! We traveled with two 7 year olds who slept on the pullout sofa. Because of the spacious lanai we did not feel crowded. I would highly recommend this location. We were able to easily explore most of the Big Island from our cozy and quiet home base. Oh yea, don't buy bananas....our hosts delivered fresh picked apple bananas 3 times during our 6 day stay.

It should have been 6 stars

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay and the rooms was spotless. Terri and Bill were so friendly. Bill took us on a walk in the garden and was very knowledgeable about everything and Terri had baked some delicious macnut brownies.

The rooms is very nice decorated and the kitchen holds all basic specie's etc. The lanai is fully equipped with a barbecue and nice sofas. It is very nice that there is any kind of beach-gear, just pick up a surfboard and go to Hapuna Beach.

We would stay here again if we go to Hawaii again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Gitte and Dan Terri an I are very pleased that you enjoy your stay with us in our Ohana. We are especially please with your 6 star comment. We also enjoyed the fact that you were our first guests from Denmark. You were a delightful couple to speak with and the many stories that we exchanged about our countries were to say the least "Priceless" . We hope to see you again. A hui hou Terri and Bill

"Cozy-N-Quiet Ohana in Paradise" - the name says it all!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've visited all the Hawaiian Islands but Big Island is, with no doubt, our favorite and thanks to Bill and Terri and the "Blue Book" we went places that we did not know about the first time we visited.

We chose, this time, this Ohana because of the location, which was very central to everything. The unit looks even better than in the pictures. What the pictures do not show is the quietness and serenity of the place!

You can find everything that you need inside, and then some; things like you would not think you need but you actually do, for example the rice cooker. The lanai is amazing for sunsets and relaxation after a day at the beach or exploring. Everything is of a very good quality. The attention to details and cleanliness are second to none.

Bill, Terri and Oggie (The Doggie) are very hospitable and friendly. Oggie is a very well behaved dog.

We loved every minute of our stay. Would I recommed this Ohana to my relatives and friends? I already did and I will with no hesitation.

Terri and Bill, until we see you again, MAHALO NUI LOA for everything!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Darclee and George for your very kind words about us and our Ohana. Terri and I enjoyed very much the company of your family. Matter O fact Augie the Doggie did too. He seemed to especially enjoy hanging out with your son while he was doing homework outside on the lani in the afternoon. We were happy to hear that you have much Aloha for the Big Island, as the people who live here also do. We look forward to seeing you again in the future and say Mahalo for your interest in our rental. A hui hou Bill and Terri
