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, star fruit, 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.

About Kimberly Krail

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.

Kimberly Krail purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Kimberly Krail chose Hilo District

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 manager

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.

Quiet, peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We enjoyed our stay at the Sun & Moon cottage. Bob, Kady and Lily were charming hosts. Walking the orchard, sitting by the stream, playing fetch the Frisbee with Lily made it feel just like home. The cottage was well appointed and had everything we needed. While it was completely out in the country and therefore very quiet and peaceful, it was still very easy to get to all the different activities on the east side of the island, like the Hawaiian Tropical Gardens, downtown Hilo, Volcano National Park, etc. Mahalo!

Gorgeous cottage and orchard

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Wow! A true gem and a once-in-a-lifetime stay. Bob and Kady's gorgeous orchard property was an unbelievable find, in a very desirable part of Big Island -- with easy access to dining, hiking, and water activities.

The cottage is immaculately clean and well maintained, and overall was a very comfortable stay. Bed, showers, kitchen, TV (satellite!), wifi -- all very good quality.

Still, better than half of the value is the property itself, virtually a private park that feels like staying on your own plantation. The orchard is large, beautiful, and well kept. A stream runs through the property, and Bob and Kady have put up a nice little gazebo creekside for the enjoyment of guests. Their friendly, playful dog Lily roams the property, and frequently would stop by to say 'hello' while my wife and I walked around the grounds.

All in all, a true once-in-a-lifetime -- and an incredible value considering the very, very reasonable nightly rate.

Wonderful stay

Our hosts Bob and Kady were great hosts; very knowledgeable and helpful. The property(6 acres) was a pleasant walk with their dog Lilly. The address (Pepeekeo) may seem out of the way but restaurants and shopping in Hilo were easy. Akaka falls is close and the great Waipio valley is convenient. To the point-we will stay there again.

Bob and Kady were wonderful. The cottage was a great place to stay and explore the Hilo side. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We also had a great fun with Lily. I am sorry about Bob's fish. Your neighbor showed them when she discovered them. Definitely a great value!
