Diamond in the rough

5 on September 14, 2016

This place is just that.. I don't want people to know about it, but can't be slefish.. We came over form Maui and if I could do over I would have just stayed here ONLY. The host Bill and his wife are like that Gods and kindness wanting your trip to always be memorable. This is a place that I could send my kids on there honeymoon, it has everything they have not for got anything at all. Romantic Is bar none and privacy you will have. This is a place that you will never forget. They even cut up fresh fruit and have it ready for you. They never bother you. If there was 10 stars to give I would give 11.. This is the place you want for sure. Stop at Costco and pick up your groceries and that way you will not have to go to town any more. Bill is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and will tell you all the must sees you must do. DO NOT spend your money on any tours Bill will tell you were to go and you can save yourself money. Have Fun in the greatest place on earth. That is a fact...

This place is rated a 4.8 but should be rated a 10 plus 5 stars don't even do this place justice. It should be a 10. The owners of this place are wonderful FULL of knowledge of the surrounding area and Island .. No need for a tour Bill will tell you all the must sees. We jumped over form MAUI and if I could of done it again I would of just stayed here. If you are looking for seclusion romantic fun great wonderful this is the place .. The host will bring you breakfast fresh fruit every day all cut up. Both he and his wife are wonderful people and have not for got anything. Trust me you will fall in love with this place. Privacy wonderful place for a honeymoon celebrating an anniversary. Be ready for pure happiness this is the place. I call BS on the on suite Dining if you are going to a cottage that means you are planing on making your meals. Stop at Costco on your way up and stock up to make your meals... This place is all and outstanding score diamond in the rough. And I am a man that is giving this rating...

Unforgotteble place in the cool Big Island highlands

4.8 on September 09, 2016

This is a true gem! Spotless, well appointed and expertly decorated by the owners. They bring in wonderful pastries and all the fixings for you to cook up a great breakfast and answer any questions you might have. There were even binocs, flashlights and other things you would not expect to find. There are good travel books, articles, and brochures in the cabin as well, and a modern washer and dryer. The hot tub was very relaxing in the cool highlands of the Big Island. You are just minutes away from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and just half an hour from Hilo with its stores and restaurants. Highly recommended! This place is not cheap, thus the four stars for value, but well worth it.

A gem

I shouldn't review this because I want to keep it a secret. It is the best of the best. The hosts go beyond providing the most wonderful breakfast fixings. Everything. You want is at your fingertips and all first class. You can see their thoughtfulness and pride everywhere you look. My go to place in all the world.

The perfect place

Secluded, quiet, peaceful.everything first rate. The breakfast fixings are more than you can imagine, and packaged with such common sense and care. Delicious baked goods and fresh fruit are left every morning.

Hilo Hideaway

5 on June 16, 2016

Bill and Antoinette have thought of everything in terms of the comfort of their guests. From the first minute we stepped foot in the cottage to our last wave good-bye, we were enchanted by the decor, the food, the beautiful surroundings. Nothing that a guest could need is lacking - from toiletries, to robes and slippers to umbrellas and board games. The food provided was delicious and the selection of teas and coffees was extraordinary. My fondest wish would be that this cottage were near my home so I could go often for a little break. Bill is the consummate host. He sent information to us before we arrived and spent time with us when we first arrived at the cottage to tell us about the area. The cottage is perfect for a couple or a family with children.

Would give 6 stars if possible.

This was truly a great place to stay. It was a home-away from home. Close to the park and just amazing.

A paradise in paradise

Really enjoyed our stay here , wish we had stayed longer . The owner Bill greeted us and briefed us on all the amenities and advised us on things to do on the island .Everything was like being home no need for anything , including a stocked refrigerator for all we needed for breakfast, including wonderful pastries stocked each day. The grounds around the house were beautiful and had a hot tub pavilion.Do not hesitate to stay here was more than I expected.

Anniversary treat

The Teapot was a vacation on our vacation. A true anniversary treat. Everything was perfect from start to finish. We were able to relax and enjoy in our own personal Hawaiian hideaway! I would highly recommend.
