About Iliahi

Aloha! We call the Big Island Home! As a Native to the Hawaiian Islands, my husband and I fell in love with this area for it's remote beauty. You can connect with the Aina and feel the Mana. This area holds so much History of the Hawaiian People. This is Pele's Home! We love Hosting Guests from all over the world. We have been in business for many years and are loving every minute of it. We greet all our Guests and treat them like our own Ohana!

Mahalo again and we look forward to Hosting you:)

Why Iliahi chose Pahoa

We love the Puna area for it's remote beauty, green forest, rugged coast and deep pacific blue waters. We love the east side of the Big Island as we experience no Vog due to our constant Easterly trade-winds and we experience less rainfall than Hilo. Our area is also known for it's Sunny days and Rainy nights one of the reasons why it is so green and lush. It is one of the most beautiful areas in the Hawaiian Island chain. This place holds so much History of the Hawaiian People and is sacred. This is Pele's Home! This area feels like old Hawaii, full of Beauty ,Tradition, friendly people and the Aloha Spirit truly Lives here!

What makes this cottage unique

The inspiration to build the The Bali Cottage was from our own home The Bali House at Kehena Beach, the Cottage was Custom built using imported woods from Bali. We tried to use as much renewable and reusable materials in it's construction. We wanted to create a place that our Guest's would enjoy year round and have a place that could be affordable yet elegant. The Bali Cottage has an amazing unobstructed oceanfront view of Kehena Bay & the deep blue Pacific Ocean and is only 200 ft away from Kehena Beach. It has its own hot tub, garden and is gated and has covered parking and has kitchen and on suite bathroom with a covered Lanai upstairs.

Aloha and E Komo Mai!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding place! For a couple, you won't find a better value! The outdoor stairs to the lower level wore off when we realized there is no snow and ice! For the price, it is a tremendous place! Stay here if you want to be off the grid....but not really!

Just Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Bali Cottage. The property was exactly as noted on the HomeAway website and then some. Super comfortable bedding, wonderful open and airy environment. The cottage was clean and ready for us when we arrived. There were sufficient supplies (some extras we did not expect!). The cottage and grounds are well maintained. On Day 1 - We were greeted by spinner dolphins playing in the water from our fantastic water view across the street. Serenaded by the coqui in the evenings, we slept better than we have in a long time. The entire experience at Bali Cottage and the town of Pahoa on the big island made our Valentine's holiday getaway vacation relaxing and fun! We will definitely be staying here again. Mahalo Ili and Tim!

Beautiful cottage! so relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had some travel issues getting to the island, but I stayed in touch with Iliahi and she was wonderful about the situation. She recommended we get supplies in Hilo once we got to the island, which was a great suggestion. The cottage was well appointed and the grounds were beautiful. The cottage does not have ac, so it took a bit getting used to the warmth at night, but there are many fans and they helped tremendously.

The lanai was wonderful our for morning breakfast and we loved the little iguanas we saw.

We did hear music from the neighbors, but only during the day, and frankly we loved the island music they played.

The black sand beach across the street was a bit tricky to get to, but unbelievably worth it. We saw a pod of dolphins close by and even saw a humpback whale jump out of the water in the distance! There were bigger swells when we were there, so we had to be careful of sneaker waves. And It is clothing optional, so be prepared. However it did not seem to matter if clothing was worn or not.

We loved our little cottage and would definitely come back, although we did get to see the house in back and might try that next time. Either way I don't think we would be disappointed.

Thank you, Iliahi and Tim, for sharing your wonderful sanctuary!

Cozy cottage with an amazing balcony view!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Bali Cottage for our 5 nights on the Big Island. Our favorite part about the cottage was the gorgeous view from the balcony. We spent a good portion of our time relaxing on the balcony and listening to the sounds of the ocean. The frogs were beautiful but loud for people who are used to sleeping in silence. The fan provided in the cottage helped! The kitchen area is very well equipped with things you wouldn't expect (like a coffee grinder) which was a nice surprise. One thing to note is that while I only saw the people staying in the Bali House (right behind the cottage) once, I did hear them and other neighbors. All in all, this cottage is a great value for the location and the amenities, and is a perfect getaway for a couple or even one person looking to relax. We will never forget our Big Island vacation and our time spent in the Bali Cottage!

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect place for us to stay for our honeymoon. The view of the ocean and sun rise in the mornings while sitting on the front porch was amazing. Tim and Iliahi set up a very cozy sanctuary for those wanting to get away. They even provide items to enjoy the area such as snorkle and fins, towels, or movies to watch if you get a rainy day. The Bali cottage itself gets 5 stars! It was very clean and welcoming.

The only reasons I gave it a 4 stars: it is a bit far of a drive. If you plan to stay mostly at the cottage or enjoy activities near kahena and kalapana its great, but the added 20-30 minutes to get to the main highway can be a lot added for everyday travels. There are also not a lot of restaurants near by, but the kitchen at the cottage can overcome that issue. Secondly, the Bali House is a lot closer to the cottage than I thought. So if another couple is present there on their patio you can hear each others conversations, although this gets diminished with the Coqui frogs :0)

This was a nice peaceful get away for us to unwind and be our own personal paradise for our honeymoon.
