“Perfect.”
Reviewed 14 March 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Bob, Kady, and Lilly the Border Collie are all wonderful...the location is private and convenient...the cottage is well supplied to cook on your own...the grounds are immaculate...it is difficult to say enough nice things about this rental. This was our third time here and we have already booked our fourth. I can't come up with any downsides to our visit here...

“Beautiful property - peaceful location”
Reviewed 20 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

There really isn't much that I can add that hasn't already been mentioned in the other reviews (which are all spot-on) and we also would like to thank the owners for sharing their good fortune with us. This is a very quiet and peaceful location - no cars or road noise. There is some light farm animal activity from the neighbors in the morning which I guess could bother some folks, but we found it to be soothing. Just close enough to Hilo for necessities and just far enough from Hilo so as to not be influenced by a busy city. A couple of notes: I would have found the patio more enjoyable had it been protected and with a view of some sort & the kitchen is short a stove, however there is an outside BBQ for use, weather permitting. Just picking at nits though - all in all a very pleasant experience.

“Ideal....people, location, view, neighborhood....”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We arrived late evening...well after dark, and the directions that were provided were spot on. That was a great start, though be warned, you have to have confidence in the directions in the dark because there are a couple of spots in the last couple miles where you say "really...??". Just follow the directions and you will be fine. The cottage was clean, fresh, stocked with coffee, and was a great spot to stay for 10 days. Bob and Cady, the owners, live next door, and are wonderful people....they clearly will embrace you as much (or as little) as you wish. We embraced them back, and left with wonderful friends. They also have one of the world's best dogs in Lilly, who will love on you the whole time if you want. The cottage location is only a few minutes from Hilo, which is a cool old Hawaii town. The cottage and property themselves are very pretty and well tended. I can't come up with any negatives to add to this review.

“A little piece of paradise”

Thank you Bob and Kady. We had wonderful two weeks in your cute little cottage. How could we ask for anything more. You made us feel like like part of the family.You were so generous to share the fruit from the orchard with us. And Lily what can we say, so friendly and playful. We saw so many beautiful sights from one end of the island to the other. From the Volcanoes National Park to the top of the summit of Mauna Kea. and white sand beach of Hapuna. We enjoyed Hilo and its shops and The farmers market was a real treat. Thank you for letting us enjoy a little piece of Paradise. We wish you many healthy and happy years in Hawaii.

“Quiet, peaceful, lovely”
Reviewed 24 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Situated on an 8 acre orchard, this newly constructed, charming and well-appointed guest cottage was the perfect central base for exploring the Hilo side of the Big Island. Hosts Bob and Kady were warm and hospitable, and generous with their advice, friendship and homegrown fruits and vegetables. Very close to the Botanical Garden, and only 10 miles north of Hilo.
