Overview

About the property

Studio cottage, centrally located.

A private, separate structure, studio cottage situated at the back of a one acre property. Vaulted wood ceilings with exposed beams and optional dim mood lighting are two wonderful features.

Garden views surround from the 384sqft. lanai, giving you peace and privacy. Included on the lanai is a hammock for 2 (up to 500 lbs.), a portable gas BBQ grill that can be taken with you for day trips, patio furniture with mosquito net umbrella cover, wheeled cooler, beach mats, beach towels, snorkels and masks, beach chairs, 2 boogie boards, large beach umbrella and 2 large umbrellas for rainy days. The lanai is 8 feet wide and runs along two sides of the cottage, extending the living space. A roof overhang of 4 feet protects the lanai on rainy days so you can still enjoy being outside without getting wet.

There are many sounds of nature all around us, primarily Hawaiian dove, coqui frogs at night, crickets, birds, and other frogs. We have small hobby farms on each side of us, so you will also hear their dogs, ducks, goats, chickens and roosters. I realize roosters can be very annoying if you are not used to them, so I have two fans in the unit that can be used to help muffle the sounds. As of March 14, 2017 there is also a sound machine with 10 different sound scenarios that is very effective in covering the roosters crowing. The neighbors have also lessened the number of roosters as well. Roosters are very common throughout the Puna district - I've even heard them inside the Hilo airport post office! If roosters are a concern you want to avoid, be sure to ask your potential hosts about their own or neighboring roosters.

Inside sleeps up to 4 with a queen-size bed and full-size sleeper/love seat. The sleeper is a very comfortable foam mattress with no bar to jab you in the back all night. It can fit up to 3 medium-sized people as a love seat, 2 as a bed. The queen bed is medium firmness with a center reinforcement for back support and I've added a foam/memory foam pad for added comfort.

Dish satellite TV and internet are included. The TV is a 39" LED/HDTV with 120 channels.

Full kitchen with gas stove, oven, refrigerator. It is fully stocked with pots and pans, utensils for eating and cooking, rice maker, microwave, coffee maker and coffee, blender, bagel sized toaster, 25 spices, and purified water dispenser. Dishes are a service for 4, including plates, bowls, wooden salad bowls, large coffee mugs, glasses, wine glasses, shot glass, and kiddie cups.

The bathroom has a shower stall, pedestal sink, laundry basket, plenty of towels, hand towels and wash cloths. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and baby wash are also provided. The medicine cabinet contains a First Aid Kid, peroxide, and various OTC medications for headache, allergy and itching. Our property also features tankless hot water heaters, so you will not run out of hot water.

You are welcome to use the washer and dryer located in the carport. Laundry soap, bleach, and dryer sheets are provided as well.

We provide the book "Hawaii: The Big Island Revealed" so you don't miss any off-the-beaten-path places of interest.

Although our location is central to Hilo, the Volcano and the coastlines of lower Puna, this is the BIG ISLAND - it is not The Island of Convenience, lol. In other words, there is no getting out of long drives no matter where you stay. But the drives are along long stretches of rural highways with very few stop signs or stop lights, so it isn't as long as it seems in terms of time. If you're here long enough, you'll get used to it!

Getting here is super easy, and on paved roads the whole way. We look forward to seeing you!

Please email me if you have any questions or concerns that I may not have addressed here.
