A nice, quiet, secluded cottage near ocean views and volcanos was all it was advertised. It is a spacious cottage, set back on a wooded lot in the beautiful verdant green side of the big island Hawaii. If I wanted a place to relax, unwind, and write a book or catch up on my painting, this is that place. Cottage...

Beautiful little one room cottage, in a small development within a mile of the coast. Beautiful view of ocean at night, lots of stars, not much light pollution. Great breeze at coast. Cottage is well used but functional, well stocked with everyday items and kept clean. Pots, pans & most importantly bottle & wine openers. Wi-Fi was nice, but tried...

Management response:

I'm glad you liked the area near our 1-bedroom cottage (it also has a LR, full kitchen, and screened-in lanai for dining at home.) Sorry I was on the mainland when you were here or we would have brought over a second AC. Mahalo for being such wonderful guests.

My husband and my 21 months old stayed in this cottage for about 10 days. It was nice and comfortable. The place was clean. My son liked the balcony with black screen around it to keep the bugs out. The area was nice and quiet and closed to the Thermal Pool, Champagne Pond, Tide Pools, and a small Black Sand...

I'm so glad you enjoyed the house and the unique warm ponds in our piece of paradise.

About the neighborhood
A private home-away-from home in lovely Kalapana Seaview Estates, a beautiful neighborhood close to Kehena black sand beach and one mile south of Kalani Oceanside Resort, where you can partake in yoga and cultural activities and enjoy their pool and spa facilities. Three warm ocean ponds and a Marine Sanctuary for snorkeling are 6 to 8 miles away, and Pahoa Town 13 miles away, and Hilo (the 2nd largest city in Hawaii) is 38 miles away. Near Hawaii's #1 tourist attraction: just 10 miles from where new lava is entering the ocean. The entrance to all the trails of Volcanoes Ntl Park is an hour's drive up at higher elevation.
