A quiet, private cedar cottage; cozy and quaint is located in rural Ka`u on the Big Island, Hawai`i. You will find all the amenities of home here including satellite TV, DVD's and internet. The house is very clean with a personal touch which makes it even more appealing. A motorized reclining sofa and a queen bed provide comfortable rest. This 3 acre parcel is nicely landscaped and well kept. The panoramic ocean view from this property includes South Point, Ka Lae, the southernmost point in the United States. Spectacular sunrises and beautiful sunsets enhance this peaceful property. As well as colorful rainbows! Plus... you can enjoy an amazing night sky and stargazing!
White and Black sand beaches are within a 40 minute drive. Taking a hike from South Point you can visit Green Sands Beach. You can also hike and enjoy Manuka State Park or a subsidy of Volcano National Park, both are 10 minutes away. Shopping, restaurants, post office, and gas stations are nearby. It's the perfect place to sit back, relax, and enjoy island living without getting caught up in the daily hustle and bustle of life! Elevation is 1,080 feet.
My husband and I were seeking adventure and solitude with our visit to the Big Island. Our stay in this cozy home definitely fit the bill for a rejuvenation vacation. With a reasonable drive in either direction you can enjoy all the island has to offer. The property was beautifully splashed with native flowers and foliage with personal welcoming touches inside as well. We immensely enjoyed the peace of our escape in this lovely little home and watching the sunset over the ocean each night.
Well kept, well equipped property
My husband and I were delighted with our stay. The owner supplied the cabin with top quality linens, towels, dishes, pots and pans. We felt right at home. We loved the decor. We also enjoyed the privacy and the quiet area that is a gated community. We are used to driving as we live in the country so for us the location was ideal being very close to the half way point between Hilo and Kona. If you don't mind driving and you like privacy in a picture perfect cabin then this is as good as it gets. We highly recommend this place and would return for another stay in the future. The owners are very easy to work with and very pleasant although we only met the wife. She is a delight.
This comfortable and pleasing home met all of our vacation needs. I say "home" because that was exactly how we felt..."at home." The house is well stocked and SPOTLESS! The panoramic ocean view, including the tip of South point (southern most point of the US) was the perfect wake-up scenery. From spectacular sunrises to beautiful sunsets, sliding into magnificent starry nights, we thoroughly enjoyed our peace and solitude!
The location is conveniently situated between the East and West sides of the island. So, driving in either direction allowed for a variety of sight-seeing delights. We played on white sand beaches, watched the turtles at the black sand beach, and hiked into the famous green sand beach. Going east, we ventured into Hilo for the farmer's market and a great lunch. Then onto Volcano National Park, which was right on the path home. Going west, we visited the Hawaiian historical site of Pu`uhonua O Honaunau (City of Refuge). We took in some awesome snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay. Then moved further west into Kona for fun, food and a little shopping.
We even enjoyed a "down day" kicking back at home, candle light dinner, a movie (nice selection), and of course pop corn! I like the hot air popper!
The property is well kept and protected in a gated community. We liked just sitting on the sun porch taking in the ocean view and listening to the palms blowing in the breeze. I still can't get over how quiet it was.
The owners are friendly, kind and attentive. They allow you full privacy to make it your own home in Hawaii! But if you need something, they are a phone call away.
Folks, you can't go wrong here!
It couldn't have been better. The house was very comfortable and relaxing, with sweeping views of the Ka'u coastline. Very private and not wanting for anything. Oceanview is only 3 miles away to stock the fridge and a Sat. craft mkt.
The owners are very attentive to the property and guests. New friends.
This was such a unique and lovely place to stay. My husband and I needed a quiet getaway and it was just right. We didn't want for anything during our stay, and Cindy was a great hostess. The house is off the beaten path, most unusual, and exactly what we look for when we travel. The kitchen is always something we use a lot and everything we needed was there, as well as many extras. The house has every modern amenity and we would absolutely stay there again! It's not for you if you want an exciting social nightlife, but if you want peace, tranquility and to enjoy the true nature of the area, stay here! Explore the grounds! And find the local lava tubes! They are amazing. Southern-most point in the U.S.? A short drive away! And the Green Sand Beach is wonderful.

Ka Lae also called South Point is the southern most point in the United States. According to historians, the first Hawaiians may have landed near here from the Marquesas as they arrived in their ocean going canoes. Several ancient Hawaiian sites are located nearby.
During the winter months, one of the most spectacular sites from the point is the magnificent humpback whale. The Hawaiian Islands comprise the most significant breeding grounds for humpback whales in the entire North Pacific. What a delightful sight it is to watch them with their young calves. You can enjoy these friendly and energetic creatures display activities like tail slaps, fin waves, and breaching. When a humpback whale breathes, air rushes out of the blowhole at nearly 300 miles per hour and can be seen from a great distance.
