Description from owner


This beautiful mountain cottage at 3300 feet altitude is just 5 miles away from the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It's a perfect place to relax and experience the natural beauty of Hawaii. Lots of large picture windows. Quiet, simple and serene. Wake up to the songs of Hawaiian native birds. Retire at night watching the night sky from one of the five picture windows in the bedroom.

The cottage is built 6 feet above ground on the front side (with 14 stairs up to the front door) and sits at ground level in the back. Built mostly of wood and glass with open beam construction, it is tucked into predominantly native forest of Hawaiian Ohia and Hapuu (Hawaii Tree Fern) that is glorious in the mountain sun and mist. Our little cottage has ten large picture windows to give it a beautiful, expansive, tree-top view of the surrounding trees and vibrant plant life. It has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a sitting room with an expansive outdoor view and a small bathroom with a tub/shower. There is an open veranda part way around the cottage as well as a back deck to relax and enjoy the late afternoon sun. The entire cottage is about 850 sq. ft. Very comfortable and spacious for two people.

There is a TV screen (no cable TV) and blue ray/DVD player in the sitting room for you to enjoy movies in the evening after a day of exploring. There is also wireless & cable internet in the sitting room, and a gas fire stove in the sitting room for those cold mountain evenings. The kitchen is fully equipped with a propane stove top, toaster oven, microwave oven, small size fridge and all basic kitchen utensils & supplies. The cottage enfolds vegetarian, outdoor, meditative inclined folks into its embrace.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is just a few miles away. There are lots of nature walking trails and hiking trails in and around Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with one to the summit of Mauna Loa Volcano at almost 14000 feet - a rigorous 3 day backpacking trip. When the volcano is active, you can hike to see lava flowing inland or into the ocean. When visiting you should be prepared for hot and cold and dry and wet.

We require a minimum of 2 night stay. We occasionally accept one night booking with an additional $25 surcharge. Please make inquire first.

This is our retreat cottage that we love. We would like to know a little about our guests at the cottage. When you make inquiry about this cottage, please tell us a little about yourself and the trip you are planning.

We will be happy to answer any questions before and after your arrival. Feel free to contact us by phone or by email.

This is our own retreat cottage. We love it. We hope you'll enjoy it and care for it as we do. It is a place for quiet contemplation and meditative retreat with a feeling of serenity both inside and outside.

Whether you decide to visit with us or not,

we send you our Aloha,

Richard and Candice
