About this listing
At the heart of Hawaii is a lush tropical paradise beyond compare. The Cliffhouse is a custom built cottage, overlooking the majestic Waipio Valley. Nestled into a bamboo forest, completely emersed in a garden of flowers. Includes fireplace & jacuzzi
Tucked away in a hidden paradise, we offer our charming cottage. Immersed in a plethora of plants, flowers, and amazing views, it is the perfect "get-away" spot. You'll find yourself situated on the cliffs above the majestic Waipio Bay. From the home, you have wide open views of the Kohala Cliffs, a 17 mile view up the coast to Pololu Point, and a 50 mile view across the sea to the Beautiful island of Maui. We are proud to be able to share a bit of "Old Hawai'i" with our beautiful hidden oasis.
The home is private. There home is equipped with WIFI, a DVD plaver and a flat screen TV. There is a covered carport connected to the cottage, there are three covered long (very minimal incline) steps that lead from carport to the front porch. The home has a great big two person Jacuzzi tub with views of the Ocean and Maui. The cottage has a big yard and there are lovely garden areas with flowers, herbs and fruit trees. There is also a two person swing to enjoy.
We offer complete privacy in this tropical paradise, but we can be found conveniently located only a short distance away whenever assistance is needed.
The small historic village of Kukuihaele offers 2 art galleries and is the starting spot for over half a dozen great Tours. A short walk through the village brings you to Waipio Valley lookout, where you may choose a wonderful hiking experience down into the valley, or opt to take the shuttle tour down and get a wonderful guided narrative about the valley's amazing history. Waipio is home to an amazing mile long black sand beach, a double 1200ft waterfall, and one of the few places lucky enough to boast that still has herds of Wild horses. You may take a fun Horseback tour or Mule wagon tour in the valley as well.
Renting a 4x4 jeep can allow you to get to special places like the short 4x4 only road down to the black sand beach in Waipio Valley, over to the green sand beach and up to the summit of Mauna Kea. Even if you don't get a 4x4, a rental car will still get you everywhere you need to go. From the Cliffhouse there are lots of hiking opportunities as well.
The cottage is centrally located between Hilo and Kona. Conveniently located near ATV tours, Horsebacking, Ziplining, Hiking Tours, Helicopter tours and other fun activities. There are many great "must see" business in the area such as the "Hamakua Mushroom farm", producing amazing specialty Mushrooms, The Paul Mitchell's "Awapuhi" farm growing awaphui gingers for silky shampoo, or "Hawaii Vanilla Company" which just happens to be the only producing vanilla farm in the US. Our charming one street historic town of Honokaa is a must see as well, and is the gateway town to Waipio Valley. Don't forget to spend a day exploring the Valley!
