Wood Valley is the gem of the southern Ka’u district … a lush green emerald of a valley, nestled within the comforting crescent of pali cliffs.
Sometimes, you will even see a waterfall running down the cliffs, right from your cottage—we’re the only cottage with a view in the valley!
Wood Valley is a place of peace. Known for its remarkable serenity, it is known on the Big Island as "magical" .."mystical" .. "spiritual" .. "healing".
Wood Valley is an ideal spot from which to tour Volcano. Warmer, sunnier and filled with radiant flowers as well as lushness, you’ll find it’s less than half an hour away.

Here you will experience deep, pure nature--almost 80 miles of natural, unspoiled shoreline, beaches, and Hawaii’s natural goodness, away from the bustle. One of the purest places in the world, this is as close to old Hawaii as it gets.

My husband and I stayed here for our second honeymoon. It could not have been more perfect. Private, beautiful, quiet, wonderful grounds, waterfalls and birds, perfectly appointed with lovely attention to detail by anne and David. The colors of the cottage are so sensual. Cannot recommend highly enough. And the bed featured in the photo above, the best night's sleep we've had in ages.

We booked this gem for the first week of our four week holiday. Had we known in advance what a truly special setting and how gracious the hosts anne and David are - we would of booked the whole time there. The spotlessly clean, no bugs, and tastefully decorated cottage had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The well equipped kitchen and comfortable lanai made cooking when we wanted to and sitting outside to eat a very special experience. The landscaping for privacy and gardening interest has the birds hanging out in the trees and their chorus of sounds serenade you when you sit outside. This is a very private and quiet setting. No traffic noise or people sounds at night just the sounds of a lush tropical jungle. The owners are so helpful, answering questions and offering suggestions of places to see that really enriched our time there. It is well located for interesting day trips whether to Volcano or the numerous beaches nearby. Our week flew by and we found ourselves wishing we had taken some days to just hang out on the property and spend more time exploring the paths and land . We will definitely return to this spot and book for longer next time!

I chose this cottage because I needed sanctuary and a retreat from my demanding consulting schedule. And I was not disappointed . . . It turned out to be my dream cabin in the woods! The quiet and peacefulness is everything I needed to renew my spirit and recharge my battery. The cottage is gorgeous and feels wonderful to be in, like being pampered in a tranquil preserve. Anne and David are very kind and considerate hosts. They welcomed me and made me feel very comfortable. It was a wonderful experience. I definitely will be back!
