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.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

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!

Amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED ending our stay on the Big Island at this magical spot. We relaxed and explored the east side of the island from here and found it private and relaxing, being away from town, but not too far away to be able to get anywhere we wanted with relative ease. Everything we could possibly need was available at the cottage, and we were greeted immediately upon arrival with fresh fruit from the owners who gave us a quick intro to the accommodation. Couldn't ask for more and would definitely stay here again if we are so lucky to make a return trip to Hawaii in the future!

Peaceful & Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good stay. The hosts (including Lily) were very friendly and welcoming. We felt like we were out in the country by ourselves, which was what we were looking for after busier islands. Despite this, the cottage wasn't far from Hilo downtown. Overall, it was a great location for us to tour the east side of the island. The tropical fruit trees provided a very pleasant Hawaiian atmosphere. The citrus and pineapple were so delicious. We'd love to stay here again.

Beautiful, quiet, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Sun and Moon Orchard immensely. The cottage is beautiful and comfortable with amazing views. Bob and Kady are excellent hosts; spoiling us with fresh fruit from their orchard and eggs from their hens. We were given excellent recommendations for dining out and exploring the Hilo area as well. Lily, their Border Collie, was an absolute treat to play with each day. We could not have asked for a better stay and will definitely be back in the future.
