Información sobre este anuncio
Beautiful romantic cottage. Just 5 miles from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park entrance. It's a perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Hawaii. Lots of large picture windows. Quiet, secluded, simple and serene.
The cottage is built 6 feet above ground on the front side (with 14 stairs up to the front door) and at ground level on the back side. It is all wood and glass with open beam construction. It’s tucked into mostly native forest of Hawaiian Ohia and Hapuu (Hawaii Tree Fern) that is glorious in the mountain sun. This little cottage has ten large picture windows to give it a beautiful, expansive, tree-top view of the surrounding trees and vibrant plant life. It has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a sitting room with an expansive outdoor view and a small bathroom with a tub/shower. There is an open veranda part way around the cottage as well as a back deck to relax and enjoy the late afternoon sun. The entire cottage is about 850 sq. ft. Very comfortable and spacious for two people
There are lots of nature walking trails and hiking trails in and around Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with one to the summit of Mauna Loa Volcano at almost 14000 feet - a rigorous 3 day backpacking trip. When the volcano is active, you can hike to see lava flowing inland or into the ocean. When visiting you should be prepared for hot and cold and dry and wet.
If you are planning to visit other areas of the Big Island, we have another vacation rental at the North East side of the Big Island. It is a perfect spot to explore hidden gems on the Hamakua Coast of this island. Check out our Rainbow Bee Farm Cottage at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1966611
We will be happy to answer any questions before and after your arrival. Feel free to contact us by phone or by email.
This is our own retreat cottage. We love it. We hope you'll enjoy it and care for it as we do. It is a place for quiet contemplation and meditative retreat with a feeling of serenity both inside and outside.
Whether you decide to visit with us or not,
we send you our Aloha,
Richard and Candice

Candice and Richard are the hosts of two vacation rentals, Volcano Mountain Haven in Volcano and Rainbow Bee Farm Cottage in Ahualoa near Honokaa,
Candice born in Hong Kong and a Canadian citizen has been a CPA and a business manager. Richard born in New Jersey has been a lawyer, mediator and creator of an award winning gourmet honey. Candice loves hiking and dancing and is passionate about health and diet. Richard loves writing, hiking and wood working and is passionate about helping to make this world a better place.
In our recent past we were the creators and owners of a small artisan apiary in Hawaii and produced award winning gourmet organic honey, Rare Hawaiian Organic White Honey.
For many years, we brought sweetness into the lives of people through this delicious and healthful gourmet honey that we produced. We have recently passed the honey business to new owners. Now our goal is to bring sweetness, serenity and beauty to people who visit the Big Island of Hawaii through sharing our two beautiful cottages, in Volcano and Ahualoa. We want to offer an elevating, serene, bucolic experience to people who visit the Big Island of Hawaii by sharing our two beautiful cottages, in Volcano and Ahualoa.
We love Volcano. Volcano was our retreat place whenever we needed a break from the hectic life of running our honey business. We love the mountain air and the tranquility in Volcano. Hiking up Mauna Loa is one of our favorite hikes in Hawaii.
After we sold the business, we put our energy in finding a cottage in Volcano so that we could have our own retreat place. Now we are sharing our retreat cottage with our special visitors
We love our cottage very much. The original owner did a fabulous job in creating this beautiful cottage and keeping it in pristine condition. We did some minor improvements to make it even more comfortable and beautiful. We feel very fortunate to have been able to find such a gem. We treasure it and enjoy it. We hope you do too.
Rainbow Bee Farm Cottage is located on our formerly active, 5 acre honey bee farm and is also where we live. After the business was sold, we converted the education / tour building to a guest suite. Ahualoa is an artisan farming community. It is off the beaten path but has lots of hidden gems to be explored.
We live a holistic life style as much as possible. We meditate together and dance together. We grow our own vegetables, eat mostly natural and organic food, use natural non-toxic cleaning products, recycle what we can while practicing kindness towards ourselves and every living thing on earth. We love nature and try to be with nature as much as we can.
We would love to meet you, have you experience the beauty of our cottages and perhaps, by way of introduction, take a moment to share our common passions or philosophies, in brief meaningful conversation.
Candice & Richard
