The Big Island's North Kohala region is a travelers' delight, off the beaten path, it makes the area one of Hawaii's best-kept secrets.

Generally I let the guests settle in. Then I touch base, to make sure all is well, and answer any questions. From then on the interaction is need based. My leaning is "hands off", also I travel often, so sometimes I am just "not there"...
The lovely village of Kapaau which is just around the corner, as is Kamehameha Pk, swimming, tennis, baseball, gym, etc etc..
Walk. bike ride, car.
Public transport is Little to none...

Great private space in Kapa'a at the north end of Hawaii. Ed's place came exactly as described.The cottage had everything that we needed, and was very comfortable for us to use for cooking relaxing, and as a base of operations for exploring the area. Amenities like walking to the local park with free lap pool, and gym, were also pleasant surprises, as were the reasonably priced restaurants within walking distance. We'd come again in a heartbeat.
My experience in Kapa'au and the surrounding area was sublime. The cottage is aptly named. Ed is a knowledgable, generous, respectful host.
Aloha and mahalo!
Adorable cottage is an amazing town! Ed's cottage was everything my fiance and I needed for our Hawaiian getaway. Furnished with all the kitchen basics, a small beach kit with towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkel gear and an even an umbrella. Slightly worn guide books and even speedy internet when we needed it! Clean, comfortable, quite and conveniently located walking distance to the small town of Kapaau. The North Kohola part of the big island is a magical paradise and Ed's cottage was the perfect nest to visit this special part of Hawaii. I'm looking forward to staying there again soon!
We had a very restful and comfortable time at the Hawaiian Tropical hideaway....would recommend it to anyone who is looking to experience the tranquility of Northern Kohala area.
My wife and I had a great time at Ed Pollock's Hawaiian Tropical Hideaway Cottage. We stayed here for four nights in early September 2013 while visiting a friend in nearby Hawi Town.
The check-in and check-out processes were exceptionally simple. The cottage was clean and well organized. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals as well as a handful of coffee preparation tools (handy when staying so close to Kona). The bed was soft, the water pressure was good, the grounds were beautiful. The cottage was helpfully stocked with a number of Hawaii Island travel guides as well as some handy beach stuff. The location just off of the ʻAkoni Pule Highway, Hawaiʻi State Highway Route 270, meant getting around by car was extremely easy. If you are looking for a place in North Kohala, Hawaii Island, you would be well served here.
Ed was very nice and offered us local information. Mostly he kept to himself but if we needed him it was extremely easy to contact him.
We traveled all the way around the island of Hawaii and this was our favorite area out of all of them. The town is quaint and charming, everyone was so friendly and helpful. There is a wonderful farmer's market under a huge banyon tree every Saturday morning. The cottage was clean, bright, with a private yard to enjoy, perfect for just the two of us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kapaau and didn't want to leave!
It was a pleasure staying at Eds great little plantation house, in Eds absence I was looked after fantastically well by Carol who was fantastically friendly and helpful and bit only helped me to receive a package I had delivered othe house but also to return it when I found out the shoes I ordered didn't fit!
I had a wonderful time and will be back for sure!
