    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Live 'Hawaii Style' in this large tropical and private one bedroom cottage with a huge covered lanai.
    You can view the tropical landscape through the large picture windows in the main living area and feel comfortably in tune with nature, as the house was built with largely recycled materials and also makes use of the native Ohia logs.
    This cabin is secluded in tropical landscaping and native forest but also hidden in the forest is a skylight opening to a vast underground network of lava tubes, so please stay within the cleared areas. Surveyed in the early 1990's, these tubes are believed to run all the way to the ocean. Let us know if you want more information on the Kazumura Caves.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Stay Sept 18-20, 2013. Loved the private cottage!! It reminded me of staying in a mountain cabin in the National Forest of New Mexico many years ago. Quiet, secluded and with most of the conveniences of home. The bedroom had a picture window to look out in the evenings and mornings as well as louvered windows to allow cool ventilation... more
