This cottage is in the most amazing location, which is why we chose this as our first base on the Big Island. The snorkelling from the beach (which is super close to the cottage) is amazing! It's really nice having the equipment at the place too as it saves a small fortune on hiring it. We used the BBQ which is excellent, and it's almost dream-like sitting out eating out under the fairy lights and stars. As other reviews have said there are bugs -we had a visit from a large spider and there are lots of mosquitos (repellent is provided at the cottage) but it is entirely worth it. City of refuge is short drive, and Kealakekua Bay is a 20 minute walk - though we found snorkelling from the local beach more enjoyable! Sunsets from local beach are also amazing. All in all we loved this place and would recommend!

Karen and Ron were fantastic hosts. When we arrived at Bali cottage we were taken aback by just how pretty it was. Lots of artefacts from around the world, nice lighting, just a really nice atmosphere. There were some great little finishing touches that made the stay really special. The snorkelling beach is about 30 seconds walk away. When you wake up in the morning to birds and the sound of the sea you know you've made the right choice. Thoroughly recommended!

This place is truly a dream come true. Still can't believe we were lucky enough to stay in such a gorgeous place, amazing beach location and beautiful area. Purry, the friendly cat, made it even nicer! Wish we could have stayed longer and would again. Karen and Ron are fantastic friendly hosts - 11/10!!
