Reviewed March 18, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This month my wife and I stayed at the beautiful Kapehu Retreat Cottage north of Hilo. It was a great experience. The property is extensive , and is shared by one other larger house. The two buildings are separated by a couple of hundred yards, and a creek, so that privacy is virtually guaranteed. The property is nicely maintained, and...

Management response:

Funny, we had NO internet access at the cottage until January of this year, and we had only 5-star reviews. Now that we have internet but it's unreliable, we got...

What a perfect stay we had in Hilo. Kealani and Marcy were very helpful and the cottage was spotless. Kealani especially went out of her way to accomodate us and take care of special needs. We enjoyed the layout, fresh fruit, seclusion and everything about our stay!

We loved the pretty and cozy cottage which is very new and clean. Marcy warned us about the 750sqft space, but it actually feels just right for our family of four including two teenage daughters. There are plenty towels, sheets, and supplies for the upstair bedroom and the sleeping sofa. The upstair bed might be a bit tight for two...

Management response:

After this mention of the bed being rather small for 2 large people, we replaced the full-sized bed with a queen.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Maximum 4 guests, including small children. No exceptions.
4-night minimum stay is waived when the calendar is so full that only 2 or 3 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 $40-45, for 3-4 guests it can be $50-60, because of the time it takes the cleaning people to launder all the linens and towels. 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 any remaining balance will be refunded along with your security deposit).
If you prefer to book directly with the owner rather than online through FlipKey you can do so to avoid the additional 10% fee they charge: we require a 20% deposit, and the balance is due 2 days...

About the neighborhood
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 farm...
