Beautiful and convenient to all the local attractions. Wonderful location for Merry Monarch. Do inquire for larger groups during Merry Monarch!
20 minutes from Hilo airport, colleges, shopping, hotels and the beach. Beautiful tropical rain forest hideaway.
20 miles to the Volcano National Park. Two hours to Kona beaches and Kona airport.
Spacious open family room. This unit is on the ground floor.
Lush tropical flowers, plants, shrubs and trees. Are you ready for this paradise!
We are situated in a tropical rain forest and on several acres. Do take a walk around the property and pick fruit for your own consumption from the orchard in front and in back of the property. Laugh at the chickens, some like to be held!
We are available for answering all questions and try to be as helpful as possible. Ancient words of wisdom: Ask and you shell receive; Seek and you shall find; and Knock and the door will be open to you.
Our neighborhood is rural. You will see walker, horseback riders, and bikers on the road so do be careful. The wildlife consists primarily of birds, mongoose, feral cats and pigs that always avoid humans. There are small domestic dogs and chickens for curiosity fun. Enjoy the wild flowers!
The local bus stop is a 15 minute walk to the highway. Bus service exists but is infrequent.
The water we have is rainwater from a water catchment system. It is great to shower and clean with. You will find that when you wash your hair, use very little shampoo or you will be washing it out of your hair for a long time!
Also the water from the plumbing is not considered safe to drink. Bottled water for drinking is a necessity. A few bottles will be furnished on your arrival.
There is a washer for your convenience, but no dryer. There are clotheslines for drying outside.
There is a shelf or two of DVDs for your watching pleasure.
If you have any questions, just ask.

We stayed one week in Bobs apartment and had a fantastic time. On arrival the apartment was nicely decorated with fresh flowers.
The apartment is perfectly hidden in a huge tropical garden but still just about one mile of the Highway and thus convientlylocated to all attractions in the Hilo/Volcano area. Bob lives in a house on the same property (several hundred metres away - it's really a huge green garden) and can be contacted if necessary or if you need advice on what to visit. The second floor of the cottage is rented out.
The apartment is great value for the money and we only can recommend staying in Bobs cottage!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Bob's cottage. Bob is a perfect host who wants his guests to have a great time. If we are fortunate to return to the Big Island, we will definitely stay longer than a week!
The place was very clean, spacious and had everything needed for a vacation. It is secluded in a tropical setting. The host was very accommodating. Unfortunately this was a working vacation and the internet wasn't sufficient for my needs. Robert was gracious about us leaving early. We highly recommend it for anyone looking for peace and quiet.
Bob was such a friendly and open-hearted host, who tried to make our stay as unique and comfortable as possible, told us everything about the must do-things on Big Island and was even our tour guide for one day. He and his charming wife are one of the most kindhearted people we met on our stay on Hawaii. Their house is situated on a huge green property and had everything we needed. Every evening a choir of thousands of frogs started to sing - like a swarm of whistling birds - so if you love nature and look for a something private, don`t hesitate and book!
Bob Arthurs is great! Him and his wife made me feel very welcome during my stay and I'd highly recommend this retreat to anyone. I am going back again I liked it so much!
