Creekside Cottage with ocean views, 20 acres
Additional Location Information
East Hawaii (Hilo side) is the beautiful side of the island, where you find all the dramatic scenery that makes Hawaii famous: the stunning waterfalls, cliffs and river valleys, the botanical gardens, the live volcano, and pristine tide pools and snorkeling reefs. And the Creekside Cottage is in the very best location for accessing it all. It's the perfect location for your base from which to explore the entire island, so you can just check in and stay - you won't need to check out and into various rentals.
Five minutes to Akaka Falls State Park with the awesome 400-foot waterfall and it's famous climbing fish.
A few minutes drive to several gorgeous swimming beaches, some of which are frequented by friendly giant sea turtles.
15 minutes to Hilo with its international farmer's/artisan's market, several museums including the tsunami museum, and all the shops, restaurants, and medical facilities you could need.
The other side of the island (Kona or west side) is barren desert, and more than 2 hours away from the volcanoes national park and the beautiful waterfalls and dramatic sights.
The Creekside Cottage is located on the grand 20-acre Kapehu estate, overlooking the lush green Hamakua Coast and the ocean. The Cottage sits on a hill above the Kapehu Retreat House, another vacation rental (FlipKey #289423). The two homes each have complete privacy because they are separated by a creek, a ravine, landscaping and 1/10th mile of distance.
Rate for 2 guests: $105 3 guests: $120/night. 4 guests: $135/night.

Additional notes from the owner
Rate of $105/night is for 1 or 2 guests. For 3 guests, the rate is $120/night. For 4 guests, the rate is $135/night.
Maximum 4 guests, including small children. No exceptions.
5-night minimum stay is waived when the calendar is so full that only 3 or 4 consecutive nights are available.
Hawaii taxes are GET 4.167% and TAT 9.25%, totaling 13.417%.
Cleaning fee is variable, based on the number of cleaning crew hours and how clean you leave the premises. For 2 guests it's usually $40, for 3-4 guests it can be $50-60, because laundering linens and towels takes the most time. Your deposit is refunded within 2 days after check-out, along with any remaining balance on the prepaid cleaning fee (i.e., you're paying $50 up front for the cleaning charge, but most of the time the cleaning crew charges $40, so the remaining $10 will be refunded along with your security deposit).
If you book directly with the owner rather than online through FlipKey, we require a 20% deposit, and the balance is due 2 days before check-in. See our website www.kapehu.com for our policies.
