If you are staying more than one week, you must take your trash and recycling to the transfer station because the housekeeper will not come around.

WOW what a wonderful place! The pictures truly do not do this cottage justice. It is really a heavenly spot -- extremely spacious, amazing value, and appointed with everything we needed to feel right at home right away. And we so appreciated the great communication with Patricia throughout the trip. Thanks so much again for the wonderful stay!

Beautiful home with a beautiful view. I would definitely recommend to anyone. The cat was a nice touch too. Grandmas kitchen down the street had great food!

We enjoyed our stay here in Honoka'a. It was spacious, clean and fully stocked with everything we would need. The friendly animals on the property were an added bonus! There are coqui frogs in this area, so bring earphones or earplugs if you have a hard time sleeping with a little bit of noise. Patricia was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. Overall a great place!

Our stay at Patricia's cottage was perfect in every way. The cottage was very well appointed--we found that there was everything needed for a family to have a comfortable stay including a spacious lanai with an incredible view. The surroundings were gorgeous with lots of fruit trees and it is in walking distance to the very cute main street of Honokaa.

We loved staying at the Luna Blue Cottage. It was very clean and comfortable and has great views of the ocean and surrounding forest. The nearby town has restaurants and shops and is within close driving distance to Hilo and Waimea. Don't forget ear plugs because the frogs are very loud at night!
