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.

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, who is strictly an outside dog.

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 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!

Excellent Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Kady have a wonderful retreat here and they are the most generous and helpful hosts. I wish we would have ended our stay with them rather than kicking off our vacation there. We had much that we wanted to see and do in and around Hilo, and so we spent our days out exploring, but theirs is a destination in itself-to just relax and take in your surroundings. Absolutely lovely!

Love the place! The property is beautiful and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful, quiet and peaceful. Its the perfect place to get away and rest. Property is filled with many different fruits such as papaya, lychee, coconuts and different tropical flowers. The owners are very friendly and also shared their fruits on property. The 'ohana unit is away from the main house and it feels like you're in your own home. We were here for the Merrie Monarch and we are planning to book here yearly if our daughter continues to compete.

My husband and I loved our stay. Bob and Kady take great pride in their place and they are great hosts. The fresh picked fruit and eggs from the chickens were a nice touch. We hope to make it back again.

Peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at the cottage. The home was very clean and comfortable. Kady and Bob had left us two large avocados on the counter that we enjoyed with breakfast. The grounds are are peaceful & relaxing. They have a dog Lily who would run outside and want to snuggle up the minute you stepped out which was sweet. We would recommend staying here.
