This charming cottage style two bedroom, one bath home is one-half of the ohana (or second family home) on my private two acre property. It is located on a quiet, secluded street a short ten minute drive south of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawai'i.
We always have our own fresh farm-raised eggs to share with our guests, as well as seasonal fruits and vegetables; and are also very convenient to many of the local farmer's markets for year round fresh tropical produce.

The space

The Cottage includes a large covered wrap-around lanai, and 800 square feet of interior space: a kitchen, dining and living area, a large bathroom with tiled shower, one bedroom with a queen sized bed, and the other bedroom with a full sized bed.
We are conveniently located for exploring all of East Hawaii, from the Ahalanui Hot Ponds and Kapoho Tide Pools in southern Puna, to Volcano National Park, and (of course) Hilo and the Hamakua coast regions. We are also happy to share snorkeling equipment, ice chests, and a variety of picnic gear with our guests.

We have a peaceful, secluded spot here and want to make sure it stays this way. So please be courteous and aware of others staying on the property.
Keeping the Cottage mildew and bug-free is also very important, so please follow my written instructions on how to handle various types of rubbage and recycling.
Please use the clothesline on the lanai to dry towels, etc if the weather permits, and open the bathroom windows when taking a shower. Electricity is very expensive here, so we try to conserve as much as possible by unplugging appliances when not in use and only using lights when needed.

The property is in a beautiful location and close to HiLo and Volcano. It is great value for money and we enjoyed our stay there. Darya was a prompt and helpful communicator and was waiting for us when we arrived. The fridge contained eggs from her chickens and fruit from her trees - both were very fresh, tasty and much enjoyed. Overall it was a great experience.

The room is nice, especially the lovely balcony, the cottage provides everything we need and Darya is a really nice host as well. Her son, who is really handsome, helped us to change the drinking water. The only problem is we can hear clearly baby's crying from neighbor's room at early morning. Next time I will plan more time to stay in big island.

We arrived during the early hours but Darya left the key for us in a place we could access without disturbing anyone. The cottage is fabulous and fully equipped for anyone's needs. It's really spacious and the lanai is great to sit out on. Others have mentioned the frogs (we found one and they are super cute) we weren't at all bothered by the noise, I prefer it to cars and loud parties! This was a great place to stay and a wonderful introduction for us to the Big Island.

Darya was very helpful in getting us snorkel gear for the whole family! Easy to get a hold of to help with questions or concerns. The house was great. Perfect for what our family needed.

Great place to stay and great base to explore the Eastern side of the Island. Darya has been a fantastic host and we've particularly appreciated all the goodies left in the fridge (muffin, fresh eggs, fresh fruits...). Mahalo!

We had a wonderful 2 week stay at Darya's little cottage. Very cozy, private and close to a lot of beaches. A lot of great local restaurants to choose from and all the facilities to make our own meals a eat on a great lani. Thank you Darya your a wonderful host.

Darya User ProfileDarya is a superhost.

I grew up in California, and came to the Big Island of Hawaii 9 years ago. I love plants and food, children and animals, art and photography. I would love to travel to Europe again, but first I hope to travel to Asia: China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, and to eat my way through every delicious region!
But until then, meeting people from all parts of the world as they travel to our beautiful, welcoming island is just perfect!
