The space
Zen Simplicity and the Warmth of Old Hawaii (Hakalau, 15 miles north of Hilo). . The Mango Tree cottage (which sleeps one or two) is a 16 x 24 space, fully open to the outdoors, enclosed by screen. Living in the Mango Tree Cottage is the closest you can be to the great lush outdoors and still be indoors. Guests listen to the winds, the rains bouncing on the tin roof, the cascading leaves, the crickets, the falling “torpedo" avocados and ripe mangoes, when in season. There is one comfortable reading chair, a nice teak table with two chairs and a cozy queen size bed. There is an attached shower and toilet facility and a kitchenette with a gas stove, mini fridge, pots, tea kettle and dishes, shared with resident in the Banana Patch Cottage. The Mango Tree Cottage is a precious place to restore, hidden along a winding country road, where the morning light awakens us all to live and breathe deeply. 45% discount for month long stay. 15% discount for 2 weeks or longer.

ALOHA & WELCOME,

Thank you very much for viewing our various accommodations. Our accommodations are located along the lush and tropical Hamakua Coast, 15 miles north of Hilo.
I am Akiko Masuda, a 3rd generation Japanese woman, born in Honolulu in the 40’s, long before freeways, shopping malls, email, Blackberrys, and cell phones. I have been a writer of children's books, student of tai chi, hula, and zen meditation, I am a storyteller, hostess, housekeeper, and love caring for our gardens and fruit trees with our weedwhacker and leaf blower. I am the president of the WAILEA VILLAGE HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMUNITY. I have been living in Wailea Village since' 91, and at that time, was the first person to buy in this quiet, peaceful country village in 35 years. Please come and discover the peace and kindness here.
