What Past Guests Are Saying
Best Place to Stay on the Big Island
The photos don't do this lovely cottage justice. We stayed for a month and didn't want to leave! Everything you need it right there. Very relaxing and comfortable; just what we needed. We enjoyed the various farmers' markets in the area. The fruits and veggies don't come any fresher. Black sand beaches, warm pools, whales and dolphins were our entertainment. Hale Haumea Cottage is located in a beautiful place. When we weren't sightseeing, I was sewing in the screened in area. It was perfect. The neighbors and very nice too. Diane is a very generous landlord. Mahalo!
What a Beautiful Time!
Your cottage is a breath of pure fresh air. We enjoyed our stay so much! When we pulled up to your place we couldn't stop grinning at each other. It's the best place we have ever stayed (pictures don't capture it's charm and essence). There is not one thing we would change! (other than us living there all the time) The bed was so comfortable. We loved lying in bed and looking up into the night sky.
We never used the air conditioner, no need with the ceiling fans in every room. Lots of towels, bathroom products, dishes, pots and pans, TV, books and etc. The people in the community were so nice. We enjoyed the market at Space (delicious food and wonderful fresh fruit and veggies) the tidal pools, beaches, restaurants in Pahoa and Lilikoi jam (brought some home). We wished we had more time there as the days flew past.
We can't wait to return to your cottage. Booking with you was a pleasure and I will gladly recommend you to all of our friends.
An Inspirational Vacation
Wow - we never expected our trip to the Big Island to be so exciting! Lava started flowing again into the ocean just prior to our arrival (Pele had taken a break for several months and Kilauea Volcano was not spewing lava down the mountain). We were taken on a guided hike at sunset and between the flow of the lava creating fireworks and the billions of stars above us, it was breathtaking.
The days were also wonderful, from swimming on a black-sand beach with others brave enough to go bare, to snorkeling in a warm pond with two large and one baby turtle, to meeting the author of The Chakra Diaries for a yoga class at Kalani Oceanside Retreat Center, and visiting three fabulous waterfalls in the Hilo area.
My husband loved the aqua massage he got from the owner's friend (at a great discount) and I loved my lomi massage - my skin is still soft from the coconut oil. The cottage had everything we needed to feel comfortable and right at home, but the people we met probably made the trip for us - from the owner and her friends, they made sure we didn't miss one special site or event happening nearby.
