A lovely, private and very clean cottage with all amenities for a comfortable and peaceful stay. Quiet, and cool the year around, we are a 20 minute walk from the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden and well situated for touring to Waipio Valley, Akaka Falls, Volcano National Park and many other destinations in the area. Come see the real Hawaii.... lush, tropical, friendly and far less touristy than the Kona side. We would love to have you come and stay! Please take a look at our reviews.

Randall's home is a real hidden gem. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay and would have stayed longer if we didn't have other commitments. Gorgeous secluded property in a great location. The space was really clean and the bed is super comfortable. The setting was absolutely divine, so relaxing and quiet, yet only a short drive to Hilo and other great places. Highly recommend!!!

We stayed at five different Airbnbs during our two weeks in Hawai'i, and Randall's was by far the best. We especially loved the soaring ceilings, beautiful bathroom, and private lanai looking out onto the garden and trees. The accommodations were hotel-level. Randall's place is very close to Hilo (but you must rent a car if you are visiting this part of Big Island), and yet the home felt perfectly secluded and private. Each night we were lulled to sleep by the sounds of the garden and coqui. Randall was very easy to communicate with and provided everything we could need. Thanks so much, Randall!

Luxurious private suite surrounded by beautiful gardens. Clean, modern kitchen and bathroom, and full of all the essentials and comforts of a great vacation rental. Randall was a wonderful host and I hope to stay here again next time I'm on the Hamakua coast!

Randall was amazing!! And his property is divine. So tranquil and picturesque. The space is exactly what you need, very well appointed with every little detail carefully considered. We spent countless hours on our patio, reading, eating, and just staring into nature. Highly recommended!!!

This comfortable and beautiful resting place is located on a spectacularly gorgeous property, within easy driving distance too Hilo town and all the restaurants and amenities that Big Island capital hosts. We woke each morning to the eye popping landscape populated with wandering domesticated chickens, and a panoply of local birds that announce each dawn with a chorus of welcome. The cottage is well appointed with comfortable sleep furnishings, enough kitchenware to cook a meal in and a wonderful shower you will remember when you leave. You will rest and enjoy yourself in this peaceful and esthetic hideaway near the earth, sky and sea.

Randall: Coffee with half and half the moment I get up. Zazen. Re-watch a Coen brothers or Fellini movie once every so often. A bit of photography.

Donna: Tea the moment she gets up! The most wonderful wife you could ever imagine! Thai food. Boogie boarding. Theater!! Did I mention tea?
