The space

Welcome Travelers!

This two story cottage is simple yet well-crafted with hand-painted floors and lots of glass. The Mango House is perched on the 1950's lava flow and located on the same 11 are organic farm as Your Hawaiian Retreat and the Avocado Tree House. The upstairs is one large living area with a king bed loft and a hand-made queen bed from Bali. A sofa futon converts into an extra bed when needed. The downstairs is one big kitchen with a dining table for six. Your kitchen is stocked with organic breakfast fixins; eggs, whole grain bread, fresh fruit, coffee, tea and all condiments. This is a great place for the adventurous as the coast is moments away. Quaint Pahoa town, six miles away, has many good eateries, natural food store, grocery store, churches and farmers markets. Located just 25 miles south of Hilo, home of our major airport and the University of Hawaii. We grow our own (vegetables), milk the goats and feed the chickens... life on the farm is good. Come see for yourself.
Only the young at heart are welcome.

Very clean cottage, lots of amenities (including pretty decent wifi), and Elvira and Hugh were fantastic hosts. Be sure to check out music night, every Wednesday, for good food, music, local arts and crafts, and an all around fun evening (a 10-mile drive through the most beautiful Hawaiian jungle!)

This was my second time staying at the Mango House on Elvira's and Hugh's property. They are wonderful hosts and pay great attention to cleanliness, details and hospitality. Fresh seasonal fruit from their farm, as well as eggs, butter, bread, cream and local Kona coffee all all provided. The Mango house has a gas stove, full size fridge, and all the necessities to cook in. There is an outdoor shower, with hot water and a rainfall shower head. The upstairs wrap around lanai provides a serene morning and evening of sweeping views of the organic farm and the song of birds. A handwritten map and a guide book are provided so that you don't miss anything while you are visiting. Many things are only a short drive away. Your hosts Elvira and Hugh are genuine good people. They go the extra mile providing the perfect balance of interaction so you feel at home, and privacy to unwind.

Great stay! This rental is on a lovely piece of property and the hosts are kind and wonderful people. The house is in 2 sections, upstairs is the bathroom and one room bedroom with a queen bed, loft bed and a futon like couch that could be a bed, downstairs is the kitchen and dining room table and outside shower. The windows are mostly screened, the nighttime sound of frogs and other animals is really LOUD, but i found it lovely, bring earplugs if you want to tune it out. We were provided with water and fruit and bread and eggs and coffee and even some cookies. This is a really special place on a remote and beautiful part of the island, its not for everyone. The place is solar so you can't plug in your hair dryer or straighter so be mindful of that. We loved every second and cannot wait to return!

Very clean, private, quiet. Made sure we had fresh fruit from their trees and fresh Kona Coffee. No tvwhich was glorious. We studied up on what to do do each night. Island is beautiful and so much to see. We'd go back

Elvira is the best possible host, attentive to all the details and amazingly friendly. The mango house is adorable, cheerful and has an outdoor shower which was a first for me! If you are looking for peaceful relaxation in a scenic, charming area, this is everything you want. It is not touristy, the volcano is just under an hour away, and it is easy to navigate to or away to touristy spots. If you are arriving later in the evening it is probably a good idea to come through the Hilo airport.

Great property, nice change from the touristy beaches, close to airport and town of Hilo, Volcanoes Natl Park, current lava flow, Pahoa and ocean. Great rural area, quiet, peaceful. Hugh was very helpful and we enjoyed chatting with him! They keep the lodging in great shape, with a lot of amenities and just a touch of rusticness that we really appreciated! They set us up in true B&B style with eggs, bread, fruit. Thanks and we recommend!
