Welcome to the Cottage! It is an all natural, hand crafted getaway in the jungle of the magical East side of Hawaii. The Cottage is one mile to Kehena beach, six miles to the new Po'hoiki black sand beach, the new lava flows and many tide pools along the red road. The cottage is built with organic materials that were locally harvested, a true labor of love. It is a cozy nook to relax in under the umbrella of Pele's homeland. Near to the ocean and the lava flow viewing area this Hawaiian style cottage has an open airy feel and is nestled into the jungle of east Hawaii. Bikes and snorkeling gear are available. The kitchen has open shelving for easy navigation. It is furnished with a love seat, recliner, beautiful mango wood desk, and a bookshelf made from the sacred Ohia tree (the first tree to grow out of the freshly cooled lava). The entire cottage frame is sculpted from this beautiful wood. The indoor bath has a roomy slate tiled walk in shower. There is an outdoor claw foot tub (undercover of clear roofing) on the lanai for soaking. The bedroom offers a comfy king sized bed. There is a washer on the front lanai for your convenience. It is a 'Hawaiian Style' structure, with some of the windows being screens and curtains. The cottage has lots of character and is extremely magical in the evening light. It is not uncommon to see the famous Hawaiian geckos scampering along the framing. There is a private entrance from the street for coming and going as you please.   Aloha.

Joe’s spot was easy to find, had an awesome lay out, and although it’s right off the street it felt like you were in the middle of the jungle. He was quick to respond to questions and made me feel warm and welcomed!
