The Forest Lot Cottage sits at the end of the road, nestled against a beautiful Ohia forest. Immaculately clean, fully equipped, private entrance. We are about 5 miles from the most recent lava flow, which created the newest black sand beaches in the world. Our neighborhood is quiet and off the beaten path.

The space
The Cottage was intentionally designed with high ceilings, lots of windows, and a ceiling fan to maximize airflow. Included in the amenities is reliable wireless Internet. Snorkel gear and beach towels are available during your stay. There is no self-serve laundry, however I offer a laundry service for an additional fee.

Pāhoa, Hawaii, United States

The Cottage is 45 minutes from Hilo and 20 minutes from the closest town, Pahoa. Often, my guests like to pick up groceries or stop at a restaurant as they pass through town. Besides Uncle Robert's on Wednesday nights (closed due to covid), there is no 'night life' close to the Cottage. That's part of the charm ;) Our night life includes star gazing, whale watching (Dec-Apr), enjoying time alone or with get the idea!

Things to do during your stay at The Cottage…
*Kehena Beach, a stunning black sand beach (clothing optional). On the right day, you might have the opportunity to swim with the dolphins that frequent the coastline. 25 minute walk (1.5 miles)
*MacKenzie State Recreation Area, explore this coastal park, softened by the ironwood trees. Walking path that goes to Malama Ki, a sandy bottom lagoon that fills up with the right combo of high tide and big waves! (5.3 miles)

I came to Lower Puna, Hawaii in December of 1999 for a women's gathering. As soon as I landed, I knew I'd found my place. Every day, I am grateful for the beauty that surrounds me. I hope you enjoy the Cottage.
