Aloha nature lovers . Located between Waipio Valley and Volcano National Park. Great hiking ! With convenient and very private pools and waterfalls to enjoy at your door step. The little cabin also has a Great ocean view to watch the ships go sailing by. Nights are wonderfull just sitting around the camp fire star gazing and telling stories. Tent camping for the kids is safe and easy. Located 20 miles north of Hilo. Just 1 mi from the highway. Very serene with only the sounds of the waterfall and wind in the trees. My two horses ( Roxxy and Shy Girl ) will be eagerly awaiting to greet you. Aloha and Happy Trials !
NOTE : Flooding may and does occur in North Hilo and on the Big Island. Please use Extreme caution when near, swimming in or crossing any waterway. 4x4 or jeep is recommended for exploring back road areas on the island and to get to my place. 4x4 is required to access Waipio Valley,Green Sands Beach and Mauna Kea. Book a cheap car then ask for a jeep up grade when you arrive for good deals on jeeps. Aloha and be Safe !
Just have Fun !!!!
Laundry is $5.00 per load
We had a delightful time in the cabin. The view was fantastic! Horses, peacocks, chickens,roamed freely amidst lush greenery. The Pacific Ocean merged with the horizon. The night sky was ablaze with stars. The cabin is very quaint and rustic. The lounge chairs are placed on the porch so you have the vastness of the ocean and the animals to entertain you as you relax. I am 5' 4" and I had to sit on two cushions to see over the railing. I know that is minor, but if two more cushions could be provided for the second chair, that would be great. The cabin has beautiful waterfalls nearby. Keith must have spent many hours constructing the path/steps down to it. We swam in the waterfall's pool. Considering that Hawaii's mountains had SNOW, the water was challenging to plunge into! It was fun! The chickens are very amusing to watch as are the peacocks. We had a hen sitting on her eggs on top of the linen cabinet by our bed, she was very quiet and did not disturb us. Be mindful of sitting! I nearly sat on an egg that had been deposited on a lounge chair. I ate that egg for breakfast the next day. Also, check the toilet before using- I rescued two small frogs from it. The road can be a challenge. I would not try this road in a compact car. You need something that has high clearance and 4 wheel drive was greatly appreciated by us! Neat place to stay, peaceful and very cool! If you love camping and nature, you will LOVE this spot. If you are into spa treatments or fancy hotels, this may not be for you. We enjoyed it!
This is a perfect place for nature lovers! The cabin gives you roof above your head but otherwise you feel like outdoors. Take a swim in the waterfalls. The creek is wonderfull!
BTW: There are friendly peacocks in Keith's garden.
We loved this place and Keith was a wonderful host. It was just what we were seeking - a place off the beaten path. It is a lovely property with chickens, peacocks and horses. The directions can be intimidating but if you follow Keith's directions and you are in a 4-wheel drive you should have no problem.
Horses and Waterfalls was an amazing place to stay. Keith met us upon our arrival and showed us around. We met the beautiful horses and peacocks. After that Keith took us to the waterfalls, which are absolutely stunning. He even lent us his body board and took our pictures while we were exploring the cave behind the waterfall!! Fantastic experience!
Also, the outside shower was really great - hot water available, and seeing yourself in the mirror among the nature is just surreal!
Keith was great recommending places to see and do in the area and super helpful overall. He was very easy to contact with messages or by phone.
We stayed in Hawaii during rainy nights and opted in for a Jeep, it was worth every penny when trying to get to his place. You might also consider a 4-wheel drive to get to Keith's place if you're not experienced off-road driver. Make sure you follow Keith's directions to the place, do not trust your GPS! We tried twice, and got lost both of the times.
My husband and I loved the property. The cottage was very nice and the view was amazing perfect for a couple to spend quality time with each other. Keith was very accommodating and had great advice on places to see. We would love to go back.
Wonderful experience at the little cabin. Hosts were very gracious and social but gave us all the privacy we desired. Beauty all around. We will be back.
This place was amazing! Keith was a super great host and even showed us around! We would have been glad to spend our while trip there! Such a cool little cabin and the property is stunning :) thank you Keith we consider you a friend and plan on being back!
