Overview

About the property

6 Acre Orchard with Freshwater Stream, 1 Bed 1 Bath Cottage with Ocean Views

Sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding countryside welcome in beautiful golden sunrises over this one-bedroom, one bathroom private cottage. Newly built, among 6 acres with a cool spring-fed stream, you will find over 400 fruit and palm trees, including avocado, lemon, lime, bananas, grapefruit, oranges, lychee, and other rare tropicals.

425 square foot cottage includes a kitchen, living and dining areas, TV with satellite channels, and WiFi internet.

Outside, relax on attached private 200 sq ft lanai (patio) with a bbq grill.

Our property is 10 miles north of old Hilo town, 12 miles from the Hilo Airport, 40 minutes from the Kilauea Volcano National Park, 40 minutes to get to Mauna Kea with observatories, 6 miles from a beautiful beach. It is a quiet and peaceful place situated about a third of a mile from the ocean on a bluff.

Because we are a working orchard with a stream, we are reserved for adults only, with room for 2 guests. Orchard and suite are owner operated, alongside their strictly outside, friendly border-collie, Lily.

In the spirit of Aloha we do not increase rates for Merrie Monarch or any holidays.

About Bob and Kady

We, proprietors Bob & Fa Jung (Kady), live in a separate home on the property as well as host the private cottage. Retired, we spend our days on our property doing what we love, being in the beautiful outdoors and farming. We have a cat, Skunky, and our border collie, Lily, who is strictly an outside dog.

Bob and Kady purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Bob and Kady chose Pepeekeo

As a third generation Southern Californian, I knew there was only one place I could move. My wife, Kady, originally from Taiwan by way of New York and California, was of the same mindset. So we searched the islands as retirement beckoned.

What makes this cottage unique

We settled on the windward side of the Big Island because of its climate, country setting, and people.

We never dreamed we'd find such a wonderful place as what we call the Sun & Moon Orchard. So much so we want to share it with those who come to the Island looking for something not found among ordinary Hawaii travel plans.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful week I've had as inaugural guest! It passed all too quickly, but so wonderful to have this cottage to come home to every evening. It is well appointed and so comfortable. My only regret is that I did not explore the property and discover the creek sooner. Thank you Bob & Kady for the welcome and support during our time here.

A Perfect Peaceful Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful cottage for the second leg of our honeymoon and it was just what we needed to relax and recharge our betteries together before heading back home. Our hosts, Bob and Kady, and their sweet dog, Lily, were most friendly and accommodating. They shared their fresh fruit with us (papaya, limes, lychee and avocados) and fresh eggs from their chickens. The cottage was beautiful and up-to-date, absolutely spotless and very comfortable. A note about air conditioning - there is none, and this was the only thing I was hesitant about before we booked, but believe me that in this part of the island it is not at all necessary. With the cool breezes if you just leave two windows open and keep the fans on, the temperature will be just perfect and not at all humid. It's part of enjoying being so close to nature. We slept in most mornings listening to tropical birds just outside our window, strolled down to the koi pond or the little stream to read, played frisbee with Lili and stargazed at night while a chorus of little frogs chirped away. There is also lots to do outside of the farm - if you can will yourself to go out. The 4 mile scenic road leading up from Hilo ends just south of the property. The beautful Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden is right on this scenic road and worth a visit. Akaka falls is a short drive to the north. We were also close to Hilo for restaurants, groceries and shopping and just a couple of hours from Volcanoes National Park.

All in all, this is the perfect spot to get away to enjoy firsthand the lush paradise that Hawaii is. Thank you, Bob & Kady for sharing it with us! We are sure to return soon!

Wonderful, relaxing vacation with Bob, Kaddy and Lilly

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, restful stay here, thank you Bob and Kaddy! They met us when we arrived with some goodies from their land and spent some time chatting with us. We also had the pleasure to meet Lilly the Border Collie and she is the best--friendly, full of energy and always in search of a scratch behind the ears or a body rub. She proved to be a good companion as we walked through the avocado and citrus trees, said hello to the chickens and took in the stream on the property. The cottage is quite nice with plenty of room for two, a nice kitchen with all you need and living area, the shower is fantastic, nice and big, and in the evening the gentle Big Island sea breezes and the Coqui Frogs lulled us to sleep. What a lovely place! Thank you again Bob and Kaddy. And thank you Lilly for being our new best buddy! Aloha

Perfect Getaway Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the ocean view cottage! It had everything we wanted and much more! It was lovely walking around the orchard in the evening with the doggy Lilly by our side. The fruit and fresh eggs were delicious and the large kitchen made it easy to prepare meals.

Probably our favorite vacation house we have stayed in! Thanks again Bob and Kady!

Best HomeAway experience so far!

  • 5 of 5

If you want clean and comfortable with the luxury of a dream view, Sun and Moon Orchard Cottage is for you. Kady keeps the ohana immaculate and it was such a joy to walk in and feel at home! Bob met us in the driveway in a thunderstorm! They were the perfect hosts, showing us around, bringing us fresh fruit, lending us Lily.... They even gifted us a bottle of bubbly for our anniversary! They are the kindest folks and we cannot recommend a stay at their place more. You won't regret booking in so go for it!

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, nicely-equipped cottage away from the maddening crowds. . .after doing the necessary sight-seeing, it is so nice to return to the quiet, remote cottage to spend the rest of your day. It is well located for travelling in to Hilo, and for seeing other sites nearby. The hosts, Bob and Kady, are more than accommodating-quite charming and full of information.

We adored Lily, the host border collie-our only negative comments would be that they wouldn't let us move in, nor would they allow us to dog-nap Lily. Come as strangers, leave as friends.

A beautiful property excellently maintained

  • 5 of 5

This property was simply beyond our expectation. It is so well maintained and looks new, and is impecably clean. The owners, Bob and Kady are gracious hosts and even though we stayed just 2 nights, they seemed like longstanding friends. We enjoyed our talks with Bob and Kady and fell in love with Lilly their dog. Bob answered numerous questions about the beautiful grounds which we greatly enjoyed exploring. We plan to return and will definately stay longer. You cannot go wrong selecting this wonderful property. Thank you Bob and Kady!!!
