Seaside Zen Cottage Testimonials

“Perfect! This house had exactly what we were looking for…If you are looking for an authentic, rustic yet comfortable and tropical spot, this is itI can definitely see us going back year after year, we loved it and made some great memories with our two young children…Book it, you won’t regret it!”

“So nice to be away from the crowded resorts in a peaceful spot with everything we could possibly need. The cove for a quick dip, the comfortable living space and the upstairs bedrooms that felt like sleeping out of doors. The kitchen and outside grill made meals a snap. The space surrounding the home provided a peaceful buffer from the bustle of island life yet the town of Kailua was only minutes away.”

“Great place, wonderful hosts. The house was perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults, two children 7 and 2). House backs onto a small public beach (but typically with only 2-3 people on it). House is small, but very well designed. Not luxury, but perfectly well appointed. Well stocked with stuff for kids – beach, hammock etc. Excellent location

“It is difficult to find the words to convey what a wonderful, peaceful time we enjoyed here…watching our daughter celebrate her first birthday swimming in the lagoon with the turtles was worth the trip alone.”

“Memories that will linger: five turtles welcoming us each morning; the softest pillows on the planet; the soothing thunder of the waves at night; the creaking stairs which give a midnight muncher away; the lagoon where our 2 & 4 year olds loved to play endlessly; the plethora of bathrooms; the warm breeze scented with sea and flowers; the morning song birds…enjoy each hour!”

“This house exceeded our expectations. It is simple but has all the necessary amenities – including fans and windows that open on all side. Having the public beach right out the back door was great, every morning we would check the tide pools for turtles and eels, and snorkel in the afternoon. The house is central to Kona attractions and beaches, as well as being a reasonable drive away from Volcano Nat’l Park and the Waikaloa area.”

“The house was amazing! The beach amazing! It exceeded all my expectations! I’ve already booked our (next) stay. I want to make it a destination every year so that my daughters have those memories of that beautiful house and beach!”

“Staying at the Zen cottage was an idyllic Hawaiian experience. The caretaker greeted us upon arrival and was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The setting could not be more beautiful or relaxing. It is the perfect spot, whether you want to explore the big Island or just kick back and enjoy the water with the friendly resident sea turtles.”
