Hilo, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
Sweet 1-bedroom cottage sits just above a spring-fed babbling brook on the lush and beautiful Hamakua Coast of East Hawaii. Ocean views, fruit trees, privacy, and tropical beauty in a secluded rural setting. Conveniently located within a short drive of beautiful beaches and waterfalls, as well as snorkeling reefs, volcano-viewing, zip lines, lava boat tours, and hiking trails. Ten miles/15 minutes from downtown Hilo, 25 minutes from the Hilo airport. The perfect location from which to explore the entire island: all the beautiful sights are nearby. Wonderful peace and quiet after sightseeing all day. One bedroom plus a sofa bed in the living room, 1 full bathroom plus a half-bath off the bedroom.
The Creekside Cottage is located on the grand 20-acre Kapehu estate, overlooking the lush green Hamakua Coast and the ocean. You'll have the...

My wife and I stayed at Creekside as a getaway for two to the Big Island. We'd visited Oahu as a family but then sent the kids home while we went on to the Big Island with plans to see Volcanoes along with other Island...More

Living on a Hawaiian estate is great. But realize you live in the country. It’s about 10 miles from Hilo for restaurants and shopping, but Hilo has about everything you could want. You appreciate the peaceful natural setting when you return from shopping at Walmart...More

It's hard to add anything to the glowing reviews already published here, but my husband and I were so thoroughly delighted with Creekside Cottage that I have to weigh in. We stayed for 6 nights, May 25-31, and can't wait to return. It was the...More

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Maximum 4 guests, including small children. No exceptions.
4-night minimum stay is waived when the calendar is so full that only 2 or 3 consecutive nights are available.
Hawaii taxes are GET 4% and TAT 10.25%, totaling 14.25%.
Cleaning fee is variable, based on the number of cleaning crew hours and how clean you leave the premises. For 2 guests it's usually $40-45, for 3-4 guests it can be $50-60, because of the time it takes the cleaning people to launder all the linens and towels. Your deposit is refunded within 2 days after check-out, along with any remaining balance on the prepaid cleaning fee (i.e., you're paying $50 up front for the cleaning charge, but most of the time the cleaning crew charges $40, so any remaining balance will be refunded along with your security deposit).
If you prefer to book directly with the owner rather than online through FlipKey you can do so to avoid the additional 10% fee they charge: we require a 20% deposit, and the balance is due 2 days bef...

About the neighbourhood
East Hawaii (Hilo side) is the beautiful side of the island, where you find all the dramatic scenery that makes Hawaii famous: the stunning waterfalls, cliffs and river valleys, the botanical gardens, the live volcano, and pristine tide pools and snorkeling reefs. And the Creekside Cottage is in the very best location for accessing it all. It's the perfect location for your base from which to explore the entire island, so you can just check in and stay - you won't need to check out and into various rentals.
Five minutes to Akaka Falls State Park with the awesome 400-foot waterfall and it's famous climbing fish.
A few minutes drive to several gorgeous swimming beaches, some of which are frequented by friendly giant sea turtles.
15 minutes to Hilo with its international farm...
Getting around
There is no public transportation. (Well, there's a bus system but it's of little use.) You will definietly need a rental car. You won't need 4wd; the roads all over the Big Island are good paved roads. If you're planning back-country exploration, ask the owner about the need for 4WD in specific back-country areas.
There's plenty of parking for your rental vehicle at the cottage.
