Driving to the Garden House was like an expedition into beauty. The scenery of the land and ocean was mystical and the house was like stepping into a simpler and sublime way of life. We enjoyed our stay at Mary’s property. Solar fed electricity, water that is collected and stored for use, gardens of fruits and coffee, views of the ocean and sky makes this place a haven from the reality of today’s busy life. One has to be in the zen for this beautiful place, there is no AC or TV. The space is practical, like a studio, with the bath and shower in an outside enclosure. But the handheld radio can tune in to Hawaiian music, the red blossoms of the hibiscus can draw you in, and the house made of exotic wood and hapa? wall and ceiling covering seems surreal and gives you the sought after feeling of staying in Hawaii. The house is next to the owners so the privacy is not as much as one would want and one has to feel comfortable leaving the house open to get the breezes, but the house is remote and we felt safe. The dogs gave us a better sense of security as well. Mary has dogs and they are barky, so it can be intimidating if your not used to dogs, but they leave you alone as you walk the property for a morning coffee to sit in another small building with an excellent view. We enjoyed our short stay and fell in love with the garden house in Hilo and were sad to leave. Thanks Mary for the memorable experience.
Thank you for such a comprehensive review. Just a note: the barky dog belonged to a neighbor who was in the hospital. I was babysitting for the dog, who has now been returned to her recovered owner.
Beautiful property and view of the ocean. Our host was so sweet and gave us a tour of the fruit and coffee orchard. She even gave us some tasty coffee for breakfast!
Our stay at the cottage was a welcome retreat from the adventures we experienced around the island. Quiet, cool, serene surroundings. We took dozens of pictures of our grounds...flowers, fruit, coffee trees... The cafe in PaPa'Aloa had wifi, the best bread and great staff. Mary was attentive and accommodating and really helped us get sorted out at the beginning of our trip. Highly recommend this home.
Even with rain off and on, we had a great stay. The garden is lovely, very neat to see the coffee bushes bearing flowers and berries and then try coffee brewed from the them!
Wonderful respite in beautiful and rich natural setting
Mary was a wonderful host and her guest house was a beautiful! She has many thoughtful touches that made our stay complete and easy. Her property is amazingly gorgeous and very well cared for. She offered us a sample of her incredibly good coffee that she grew on the property. Copper and Puna, her two large dogs were a nice treat for the dog lovers that we are. Very sweet. Copper is an impressive boy and Puna is a super sweetie.
The environment is delightfully peaceful since you’re quite far from town or neighbors. There is an incredible array of birds and animal sounds like that invasive frog that chirps through the first part of the night. These sounds are quite loud, but we found them very pleasing and a nice natural ambiance that is not found in city life.
Overall, we loved staying here and were delighted to meet Mary and her dogs. We will consider this place on our short list when we visit the big island again.
PS- we found the conservation of water and power to be quite easy to work with. The kitchen served our needs to cook 2 meals a day.
Mary was a terrific host and the property was as advertised with serenity beyond what that you would expect. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it.
