“Clean, comfortable, sustainable - PERFECT!!”
Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My boyfriend and I stayed in this wonderful little cottage for three nights while we wandered the south part of the island. Some perks: private, located IN a beautiful rainforest, collects and filters rain water, completely solar powered, well stocked (soap, shampoo, dishes, condiments, towels), CLEAN, very reasonably priced, and last but not least, the owner (Connie). I will absolutely contact Connie if I'm ever in the area again and definitely recommend this great little gem in the rainforest.

“Exceptional Retreat”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Off the grid and the beaten path on the Big Island of Hawaii, lies this secret jewel of a cottage. In the jungle of Hawaii, this cottage relies on catchment water, and solar power.. The system worked very well, without leaving one to think you'd abondoned civization. The owner is a most gracious hostess, helping with suggestions when needed, and allowing maximum privacy the rest of the time. The cottage back yard adjoins the new state park, so you feel like you've rented 10,000 acres. Food and entertainmentis fairly close by. My all time favorite place to stay on the big island.

Connie was very helpful and the cabin was great! The land behind is a State preserve so there is nobody behind you. Halfway between Hilo & Kona made it central located and right near the black sand beach.

“Quiet, off the grid cabin”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

people found this review helpful

The setting is very peaceful and away from the road noise. The owner has spent a of of time gardening the long driveway in. We enjoyed being surrounded by nature. The cabin is light and airy with lots of windows. No WiFi but our one verizon phone had 4g and AT&T had barely any service. With the stand alone cabin it is on a battery bank system which provided ample power, though we didn't bring a hair drier along. The cooking facilities are more than adequate without an oven and the dishes/cookware were new and complete. This would be a great jumping off point for South Point/Green Sands as its just across the road with 2 nice grocery stores 7 miles away. Connie, the owner and long time Big Island resident is helpful and very pleasant.
