Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

*If your dates aren't available, please check out our new listing #1355789*

Opened for guests in 2010, the original HULILI FARM COTTAGE (pronounced who-lee-lee) has welcomed so many wonderful guests that it became time to enable more people to enjoy the farm. Please check out our Pineapple Cottage listing (#1355789) to see which cottage best suits your needs.

Guests rave about the 'SWEEPING, UNSPOILED, TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY VIEW' in every direction! The sun and moon rise over the ocean as you watch the wonders unfold from your comfy rocking chair OR swinging bed on the lanai. Birdsong is the beautiful sound track on this private farm located at the end of a dead end country road. Relax as you walk through the orchards and please, sample the fruit...that's when it is best!

The COTTAGE is bright, clean, and furnished with all you will need. The 'BAMBOO SLEEPING CHAMBER' offers a KING size 'sleep number' bed with dual controls for firmness. A FULL size futon is inside, and outside on the LANAI is the QUEEN size 'HANGING BED'. (This bed has become a favorite with our guests, who sleep, nap, read and talk while swaying in the breeze, taking in the beauty.) Walk-in shower and pedestal sink in the cottage bath. Laundry facilities, with all supplies, are available for our guests and just steps away from the cottage.

A huge AVOCADO tree hugs the patio next to the lanai. We have named her, MS. CADDO. You may taste her fruits in season and almost always there will be a stalk of 'apple' bananas hanging from her branches. Bring some groceries and you are ready to settle in.

We encourage you to take the time to read our GUEST COMMENTS. They paint a true picture of their stay at Hulili Farm. Here is seclusion, peace and quiet on a tropical farm 'paradise'.

The ultimate guidebook: 'HAWAII, THE BIG ISLAND REVEALED' is in the cottage for your use while exploring and yes there is now WIFI in the cottage.

Have fun!

Our Aloha,

Todd and Madeleine

About Madeleine Loewen

Todd and Madeleine Loewen are the caretakers and cottage keepers here at Hulili.

A full time farm, Hulili grows tropical fruits called longan (lawn-gone) and lychee (lie-chee) on a large scale, however there are also many other fruits that grow on the farm throughout the year. There are appx. 8 acres in orchard. The remaining acreage holds house, barn, cottage and an enormous 'front yard'.

Madeleine Loewen purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Madeleine Loewen chose Hakalau

We were delighted with the 'end of the road' location, and the undeveloped, unspoiled view of the ocean and surrounding country. The 500 foot elevation means better view and pleasant breezes. The land has a gentle slope toward the orchards and ocean. The surrounding open spaces land makes it seem as if we are on hundreds of acres.

What makes this cottage unique

There is the feeling of being the only people on the island. With such privacy and space, we enjoy outside living morning to night! Mornings on the lanai as you watch the sunrise over the Pacific are incredible, as are the evening sunset colors and moonrise. We have less rain than Hilo and enjoy tropical trade winds that keep us cooler in the summer than in town.

Beautiful awe-inspiring location and a short drive from all that the Big Island has to offer, make for a perfect vacation!

Guestbook comments from the owner

...thanks to Norm, Del now has a makeshift driving range complete with distance markers out in the horse pasture. It certainly isn't as pretty as yours, but due to the drought and grasshopper infestation, he can always find the golf balls and still avoid the rattlers!

Thanks for a wonderful stay.

The perfect spot to see the real Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property with beautiful hosts. The views are spectacular and the tranquility is second to none. Nothing but the sound of some coqui frogs and birds. The cottage was immaculately clean and fully equipped. The king-sized sleep number bed was so comfortable and our daughter slept most nights on the outdoor queen bed. The farm is perfectly safe for the kids to run wild with no shoes and no worries while eating mouthfuls of longan berries! We had complete privacy and the fruit bowl on the lanai would magically refill with lemons and avocado's. Hulili farm is perfectly located to explore the east side of the Big Island which is a must see! I would wholeheartedly recommend Hulili farm to those who want to use it as a safe and peaceful base to see the un-touristy, real Hawaii. Mahalo Todd, Madeleine and family for a most wonderful stay.

One of our favorite short term rentals in the world!

  • 5 of 5

This private feeling cottage has spectacular views in a romantic setting and was one of our favorite short term rentals that we have ever stayed at! Affordable and romantic with easy access to Hilo. We visited for a part of our honeymoon and hit lychee harvest perfectly. Recommending to all of our friends and family visiting the Big Island!

Just what the Dr. ordered!

  • 5 of 5

No lava, no ash, nothing but a beautiful, beautiful quiet, clean air and peaceful visit. Flying into Hilo we could see some activity in the distance, but all of the issues are no where near to "the farm".

Todd and Madeline (owners) treated us like old friends. If I had the money I would fly back Hilo today and stay right here!

Mahalo.

Fabulous Stay - Idyllic Location - Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hulili Farm. Great away from it all place to stay. Idyllic Location. Perfect hosts- nothing was too much trouble. Fabulous views. An amazing array of tropical fruits. Loved the dawn chorus, the evening sounds of the cocqui frogs and the company of Lucy the dog. Loads to do nearby, walks, waterfalls, Hilo. Dont miss the botanical gardens - the best we saw in Hawaii. And of course dont mis the awesome volcano. We'd go back in a heartbeat. But it's a long way from England!

A hidden gem

We loved the cottage! It's quiet and peaceful. You can't beat the views. The hosts were welcoming and helpful. Just a short drive to Hilo and the surrounding attractions. I would highly recommend it if you are looking to experience the area and also want time to relax!

Paradise within paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was lush and green; sitting on the porch enjoying our coffee every morning renewed our spirits and inspired us to get going to go explore. The cottage was perfect in every way. So relaxing and peaceful.
