    A private studio cottage situated at the back of a one acre property. Surrounded by thick vegetation, you feel like you're in the jungle! Vaulted wood ceilings with exposed beams and optional dim mood lighting are two wonderful features.

    Garden views surround from the 384sqft. lanai, giving you peace and privacy. Included on the lanai is a hammock for 2 (up to 500 lbs.), a portable gas BBQ grill that can be taken with you for day trips, patio furniture with mosquito net umbrella cover, wheeled cooler, beach mats, beach towels, snorkels and masks, beach chairs, 2 boogie boards, large beach umbrella and 2 large umbrellas for rainy days. The lanai is 8 feet wide and runs along two sides of the cottage, extending the living space. A roof overhang of 4 feet protects the lanai on rainy days so you can still enjoy being outside without getting wet. Listen to the roosters and other sounds of nature as you relax with your tea or coffee.

    There are many sounds of nature all around us, primarily Hawaiian dove, coqui frogs at night, crickets, birds, and other frogs. We have small hobby farms on each side of us, so you will also hear their dogs, ducks, goats, chickens and roosters. I realize roosters can be very annoying if you are not used to them, so I have two fans in the unit that can be used to help muffle the sounds. There is also a sound machine with 10 different sound scenarios that is very effective in covering the roosters crowing. Roosters are very common throughout the Puna district - I've even heard them inside the Hilo airport post office! If roosters are a concern you want to avoid, be sure to ask your potential hosts about their own or neighboring roosters.

    Inside sleeps 2 with a queen-size bed. The queen bed is medium firmness with a center reinforcement for back support and I've added a foam/memory foam pad and plush mattress cover for added comfort.

    There is no A/C, however, there are two stand fans and a ceiling fan to help keep cool.

    Dish satellite TV and internet are included. The TV is a 39" LED/HDTV with 120 channels.

    Full kitchen with gas stove, oven, refrigerator. It is fully stocked with pots, pans and wok, utensils for eating and cooking, rice maker, microwave, crock pot, coffee maker and Starbucks coffee, blender, 4-slot toaster, 25 spices, and purified water dispenser. Dishes are a service for 4, including plates, bowls, wooden salad bowls, large coffee mugs, glasses, ...

    Karla’s cottage is one of the most well-appointed rentals you will find. She has gone above and beyond to provide everything you may need and then some (wine, chocolates, eggs, butter, etc). The property is close enough to serve as a ‘home base’ for exploring everything on this side of the island but remote enough to rest and recharge in a secluded location. Recommend without hesitation!

    What a fabulous place! Karla has made an amazing and comfortable cottage both inside and out! It was spotless and so many personal touches. We stayed in 3 places this trip and can say that this one was by far the absolute best. I would give more stars if I could! Mahalo

    My husband and I spent a week at this location and thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations here. Karla has the cottage well stocked with lots of extras you don’t always get in other rentals. She met us at check in and answered all our questions. Any other questions throughout the week were answered quickly. Very private location.

    Karla was a fantastic host - best ever. Unit was also stocked very well. Great location to visit Volcano National Park (45 min drive). We did night viewing to see active lava flow from Kilauea caldera and wanted place close by to shorten drive after long day. Bonus that unit is less than 2 miles from Puna Trail Trailhead which we did 6 mile hike next morning. We had a great nights sleep!
