Io Kea Cottage is a great place to relax in solitude or as home base for your exploration of the Big Island. Io Kea means white hawk and you may indeed see one soaring majestically above. The cottage is located on two beautifully landscaped acres with orchids and other tropical flowers in bloom - 30 minutes from either Hilo or Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

The cottage is solar powered, an off-grid sustainable system with 4G phone service and sufficient power to charge electronic items.

El alojamiento

If you want a quiet, charming place to get away this is for you. Often the only sounds you will hear are the birds singing and the wind in the ironwood trees. At night the coqui tree frogs will sing you to sleep or you may hear the patter of rain on the metal roof. The property is located between Hilo and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park - 30 minutes from either. The last two miles are on unpaved gravel road in variable condition depending upon how much rain we have had lately. Although you certainly don't need a four-wheel drive vehicle, I recommend that you consider renting a Jeep or SUV for extra clearance on the rocky road with some large puddles after rain. If you have a Jeep you will also be able to go to the top of Mauna Kea for the spectacular sunset, or deep into historic Waipio Valley - places where you can only go with four-wheel drive.

Servicios y zonas comunes

The cottage is approximately 300 feet away from the owner's home, shielded by landscaping. Guests may wander the lush tropical gardens at their leisure.

The 16' x 20' cottage has a full bed and there is a single bed in the screened sun room. There are windows everywhere and the kitchenette is fully furnished with pots, pans, blender, plates, glasses, bowls, cutlery, coffee and French press, tea, condiments and spices, and gas range and refrigerator. Groceries are available at the general store ten minutes away or in Keaau or Hilo.

There is a recycling bin for cans and bottles. We will be responsible for those if you will just leave them on the deck. In local style Io Kea Cottage is a no shoes accommodation. Enjoy your stay but please leave the cottage as you found it and place your disposable rubbish in the can in bags that are provided.

The cottage is solar powered, an off-grid sustainable system. You will have 4G phone service, wi-fi, power to charge electronic items and for normal usage. However, please be thoughtful about your energy consumption. You get the basic channels on TV with a DVD player.

Most homes in the area use rainwater. The water is treated and filtered, but it is not for consumption. There is a ceramic container of drinking/cooking water provided along with a case of bottled water. There are several locations where you can purchase pure drinking water to fill your bottles. On demand hot water heater provides hot water.

There are beach chairs and mats, beach towels, cooler, umbrella and flashlights for guest use. Your host can provide contact information for you to arrange a therapeutic Hawaiian massage in the privacy of the cottage.

The property is gated and you may lock the cottage when you are out adventuring.

Atención a los huéspedes

The owner lives on the property and will give you an orientation. She is always available by cell phone 24 hours a day if needed. Your host has experience as a professional tour guide and is happy to talk to you about accompanying you as a guide in the national park and to provide recommendations and information about the Big Island.

Please make arrangements with owner in advance for directions to the property.

The cottage was perfect for our needs. The grounds are so beautiful and peaceful. The cottage is off the beaten path and yes the road is bumpy, but we managed with a 2WD even with large rain puddles.

Donnas cottage is fabulous. We loved staying here, being mostly off grid but still completely comfortable. The tree frogs at night are amazing! We loved getting to know Donna and she put so much love into little details around the cottage. Between fresh cut flowers, decorations, freshly picked produce from her garden etc. the cottage is well equipped for any traveler coming along with shower items, bug sprays and everything in the kitchen you could need. The property is beautiful and we loved being isolated even though it included a rocky ride to get there. (Make sure to come in a 4wheel drive / high clearance vehicle as it will help driving the road to the airbnb as well as many other spots around the island) This is the perfect airbnb we loved it so much! Would highly recommend and would surely come back!

Donna's cottage is an awsome retreat in the forest where you will plunge yourself into pure nature. Tree frogs singing all night long may seem weird at the beginning but very soon will became a sweet lullaby. Donna is an attentive host and her place is immaculate and equipped with all neccesary amenities. She was also so kind to let as find somenthing in the fridge. 4-wheelers full car very suggested especially after rain period.

If you're willing to rough the really bad roads to get there, it's an exquisite gem.

Donna's place is located in a garden paradise. She really has green fingers. The independent house is well-equipped and is perfect to rest between two treks/visits. The road to her place is quite bumpy but it's worth it :)

Donna and her cottage was amazing. Very clean and comfortable. Donna had the frig stocked with water and gave us a box of chocolates which we ate while reading in the sun room. About 30 min from volcano national park. The road is bumpy. So if you have a bad back its not the greatest. But its so worth come back to a beautiful cottage.

I am in my mid-sixties, retired and loving it! I enjoy growing orchids and working in my yard, movies, travel, books, renovating the 40-year old family home on the property, and meeting new people.

I have experience as a professional tour guide on the Big Island. I can provide information and recommendations, or we can discuss having me accompany you as a guide in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, only one half hour away.
