This cottage is even nicer than the photos can show. It is a beautifully furnished, private cottage in a convenient location. The cottage is unique in its design and one of the nicest we have ever stayed. It was like luxury camping with all the amenities of a first class condo. Every detail was thought of from the supply of towels, the good pots and pans and local information to the fresh fruit and tasteful decor. It was a pleasure to communicate with Hope and Rennie. Their response to messages was prompt and pleasant. We prefer the sounds of nature; frogs and roosters to the sounds of big resorts so it was so nice to come "home" to our cottage in the evening after a day of swimming, snorkeling or visiting parks. We enjoyed having the pool, easy parking, and internet, but most of all, the inviting garden surrounded lanai and the outdoor shower. My husband didn't get a single mosquito bite, but for those like me, the mosquito net over the bed and Deet free spray are provided. We would highly recommend "Island Getaway". Although there are many great beaches within a quick 15 minute drive, we also drove to the Kohala Coast for a swim at the world class Kahuna Beach one day in a little over an hour. There is a nice feel to the general area of Honaunau, just south of Captain Cook. One could easily spend weeks comfortably in this cottage. Our week went way too quickly!

As avid campers, this was an ideal spot for city camping. The 3 screened walls made a perfect tent that kept the mosquitoes at bay. It felt like being outside as you could see and hear nature wake up in the morning and wake up more at night. We loved it. The location is perfect for exploring both sides of the island and the interior. This Island Getaway is beautifully, functionally designed. The attention to detail is delightful. Examples: A serving tray strategically placed for shower privacy and to keep the splash out of the kitchen. The bedroom floor doubles as extra kitchen counter. A bamboo grove surrounds 2 of the screened sides giving privacy. It is so unique and very comfortable. We slept great and enjoyed this "home" away from home.
