So Romantic,Totally Enchanted! You feel as if you have stepped into a fairytale It’s primitive,whimsical and very,very rustic.There are two sets of lights with a cool or a warm glow.The unit is open around the entire base and entry similar to an umbrella.There is no door.The path and bridges to the Cottage are softly lit.We are about 5-10 min drive to Volcano Village.10 mins to Volcano National park.20 mins to Hilo town.It is much colder than you are expecting at night.Bring your warmest pj’s

The space
%100 OFF THE GRID. ONLY FOR THE ADVENTUROUS. You will be greeted by some ducks and geese if they are foraging near by. They will shamelessly be begging for food every time they see you. The cottage is tucked in the forest and totally exposed to nature.You’ll hear coqui frogs and crickets chirping . You’ll also hear cows, sheep, ducks, geese , chickens and all sorts of wild birds. Occasionally we hear neighborhood dogs barking when the wild pigs are scurrying around. I call it an Enchanted Treehouse Cottage but it’s also a tent! There really isn’t any lodging I could compare it to.Built from guava wood harvested right where it stands. It’s built right into and around the trees. There are 3 clusters of live trees inside the “Cottage.” The shower and composting toilet are outside the unit and I really mean outside. When you shower or use the toilet there are no official walls just forest. The toilet is a humble but functional compost toilet that is serviced daily(so not a smelly toilet). It is private and no one would be able to see you back there .I would consider this fantastical Glamping. There is a projector available upon request. It has cords to connect to iPhones/smart phones.If it rains ,mostly its soft and mild but it’s not uncommon to get a downpour here. Personally I love being In the cottage when it’s raining but I love the rain .There is running water, a hot shower,lights , a large cooler,a small camping stove and enough power to charge phones or lab tops. Reception is really poor for T-mobile but pretty good for Verizon. I don’t know about other carriers. If your flight comes in the evening , you want to go adventure around first, or you just booked us at the last minute, No problem! Evening arrivals are magical. You will be enchanted by the path that leads you to the Cottage.

Guest access
Guests park near the main house and walk about 90 yards to their secluded space. There is parking for 1 vehicle only. Parking is the only shared space. It is not all flat. There are small hills and steps on and off the bridges. Please check all photos to judge for yourself if you are physically able to make the walk down from the parking area , across the bridges and up 4 stairs.

Other things to note
The unit DOES NOT have screens and is totally open. The roof is like an umbrella and the deck is open. There is NO door or glass on windows. JUST OPEN. This is Hawaii and there are bugs in paradise. That means if there are Mosquitos outside you will see and hear them inside. I always leave citronella candles mosquito punks, a bug zapping lantern and bug repellant for guests. Luckily the elevation seems to keep the bug numbers down. Most of the year we aren’t bothered by mosquitos but noticed if weather is warm or we haven’t had a hard rain for a few days there are more. Please understand I have no control of the bugs. The king bed does come completely covered in mosquito nets. It gets cold here especially in winter. Please pack warm clothes at least for bed time. It rains here a ton and the path to the cottage can be spongy. I do everything I can to keep it from getting muddy but sometime the rain is so heavy there is not much I can do. With all that said if an extremely romantic outdoor one of a kind experience is for you then staying here is truly magical.

Location

Mountain View, Hawaii, United States

The cottage is designed to be romantic for a couple but can accommodate 4. We are out in the country surrounded by very large properties. I love hearing the cows calling out from the neighboring farms. They sound like dinosaurs (what I imagine dinosaurs to sound like) there is a small liquor store a few blocks away. Kurtistown is only 10 minutes away with a 7-11, gas station, post office and J-Hara store which has a variety of items. Or you could head toward Volcano for Thai thai bistro ,Kīlauea lodge, Lava rock cafe, Big O’s Sandwiches or Cosmic Bowling in the national park. There are no large stores unless you go to Hilo.

I am an easy going person. I love nature and dream of traveling . I also love animals and art. I really love people and hope to share something magical with them when they stay at the cottage.

I am very available. Guests can call or text me with questions or even ask me to come to the cottage if they need anything. Guests may have as much or little interaction as they wish.
