The Sweetest Spot-Grotto Cottage is a solar driven dwelling that is tucked into a private and lush oasis just off the stunning coastal road on Big Island’s south eastern shore. The view from floor-to-ceiling windows looks out onto a jungle garden that is breath taking. With a comfy queen bed, a full studio kitchen, outdoor shower and composting toilet you are close to nature with all the comforts. There is a outdoor tub that is solar heated and we are only a ten minute walk Kehena beach. Aloha
