About the property

All the comforts and convenience of home, all provided from the Sun!

Aloha and welcome to SeaBreeze Cottage in Pepeekeo, Hawaii.

Our home is a brand new 2 bedroom, 2 bath home that offers ocean views, serene surrounding and privacy that you won’t find in the more touristy resorts on the Big Island. Once you set foot on this beautiful 8 acre property, you will see why we choose this location for our home. From the lanai you can see the ocean and watch the occasional cruise ships and barges heading in and out of the harbor in Hilo. A meandering stream runs along the property that leads to an impressive waterfall. Fruit trees have been planted by the hundreds on the land. And lush, colorful gardens are found surrounding the house.

Get up early in the morning and see the sun rise from the ocean and watch the red clouds in the sky. Get outside at night to watch the moon rise from the ocean or stay up to enjoy the beautiful stars and milky way in the middle of night.

The well appointed home features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen and an open living room / dining room area. One bedroom offers a queen bed and the other has two twins. There is also a futon bed/couch in the living area that folds down for sleeping. The kitchen has a large island and new, stainless steel appliances and quartz counter tops. The living room has a large screen smart Tv that you can watch DVDs and cable Tv on. One bedroom also offers a large smart TV.

The home is eco-friendly and completely off-grid. Electrical power comes from 29 solar panels... providing ample power which is in turn stored in 16 enormous batteries. As a back up, a quiet running propane generator, kicks on automatically when power in the batteries dips too low to service your power needs. Hot water for bathing is generated from passive solar panels and has a gas powered water heater as a back up. This sophisticated system is designed for seamless and uninterrupted electrical service, just as you would expect at any home served by a public utility. Water comes from a filtered tank system that catches rain water that falls on the roof.

Our home is located at the end of the historic Hamakua scenic route. Nearby you'll find the Hawaii Botanic Garden, a real wonder of nature. Also close by is Akaka Falls, where you can visit its 442' tall waterfall. Waipio Valley to the north and Volcano National Park to the south are also must sees as well.

Our goal is to offer your family a clean, comfortable place to stay at a reasonable price during your adventure on our amazing Big Island of Hawaii.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our experience there was amazing!! The cottage itself is beautiful and open with tall ceilings and gorgeous views. Randall was very personable, easy to contact, sent clear directions and greeted us upon arrival. The house is immaculate and had everything we needed. The kitchen was fully equipped and we really enjoyed making our breakfasts there and eating on the lanai enjoying the view. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in! Hot water was excellent and the ceiling fans kept the house at a pleasant temperature. The location was perfect for visiting Akaka Falls and we even did a day trip to Waipio Valley with enough time to have dinner in Hilo. We loved our stay, it was a true treat to have stayed there! Looking forward to coming back soon! ”

Best rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this "off-the-grid" home! Nice landscaping and beautiful view of surrounding area from the front covered patio area. The house was clean, comfortable and well-equipped with all modern, up-scale appliances.

The property manager, Randall, provided easy to follow directions to the house when we arrived after dark. He offered help and responded promptly with our questions and followed up with us during our stay to ensure everything was running smoothly.

We will definitely consider renting this property again the next time we visit Hilo!

Wonderful place but louvre windows let mosquitoes in

  • 4 of 5


1. The host, Randall, is thoughtful and helpful.

2. The house is completely off the grid, which is a new and wonderful experience for us.

3. The owner designed the house to take full advantage of the ocean view, sea breeze and natural light.

4. The house is new, clean, and tastefully decorated.

5. The yard is beautiful.

6. All-in-all, this house is a little piece of heaven and we enjoyed our stay.


1. The closet in the second bedroom has no bar for hanging clothes.

2. There are no screens on the clarestory louvre windows, hence no way to keep mosquitoes out.

3. The runner apron on the front loading washer is covered with mold. The towels and bedding smelled of mildew.

4. There is a rooster farm next door. Roosters crow incessantly all day.

Owner's Response: First of all, PLEASE... wherever you stay at a vacation rental, remember that most of us hosts will bend over backwards to meet your needs and 'fix' things that are fixable. I certainly will. Before posting complaints, please give us an opportunity DURING YOUR STAY to fix things that you feel aren't right. 1. For clarification, there ARE screens on the clerestory louvre windows. They are a fine weave and are hard to see from the floor of the living space, but there are in fact there and have been there all along! Additionally, there are few mosquitoes at this property but... it's the tropics, it comes with the territory. It's advisable to come in and shut doors behind you.... mosquitos mainly enter by following you in. 2.Had this guest simply called me, we would have immediately come with fresh sheets and changed the beds. She never mentioned it. Again... it's the tropics... if linens are left clean but on the shelf for a while, SOMETIMES they acquire a mildewy smell. We try to avoid this of course and we work very hard to provide the best experience for our guests. Communication from our guests is ESSENTIAL! 3. Mold is a constant battle in a humid tropical environment. If we missed that one mat at the base of the washer... good heavens... we're really sorry! 4.The house is on a large parcel (8 acres) and set back on the lot. The sound of roosters is distant and they have bothered none of our guests. There are many neighborhoods with rooster farms in Hawaii. Additionally they roam everywhere, even in town. Their proclamations are the sound of rural Hawaii. Visitors who would prefer a more mainland style experience will prefer the tourist resorts of the Kona side of the island.

Very comfortable house, large and airy, well appointed furnishings.

  • 5 of 5

Property is convenient to mamy sigjts in the Hilo area. Recommend visiting the Tropical Gardens just down the road. I wanted to try out an off the grid house and this house was so comfortable that you can't believe it's so eco efficient. Randall, the manager, is very responsive to requests and is very helpful in pointing out good places to visit. I would stay here again.

Rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic facility with everything you need. Well built and quality appliances.

A rural setting is lovely and peacefull with a beautiful view. Management is helpfull AND charming. Unfortunately our suniest day was departure day so we didnt get to enjoy the lanai as much as we wished.

Lovely place, lovely view.

  • 5 of 5

Great place, a little hard to find, but once there my husband and I found it met all of our needs and then some. Fell in love with Big Island--despite the rain. It's a magical place.
