Sun and Moon Orchard Cottage


Sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding countryside welcome in beautiful golden sunrises over this one-bedroom, one bathroom private cottage. Newly built, among 6 acres with a cool spring-fed stream, you will find over 400 fruit and palm trees, including avocado, lemon, lime, bananas, grapefruit, oranges, lychee, and other rare tropicals. 425 square foot cottage includes a kitchen, living and dining areas, TV with satellite channels, and WiFi internet. Outside, relax on attached private 200 sq ft lanai (patio) with a barbecue grill. Our property is 10 miles north of old Hilo town, 12 miles from the Hilo Airport, 40 minutes from the Kilauea Volcano National Park, 40 minutes to get to Mauna Kea with observatories, 6 miles from a beautiful beach. It is a quiet and peaceful place situated about a third of a mile from the ocean on a bluff. Because we are a working orchard with a stream, we are reserved for adults only, with room for 2 guests. Orchard and suite are owner operated, alongside their strictly outside, friendly border-collie, Lily. As is our long time custom we look forward to meeting and greeting our guests with fresh fruit from the orchard and fresh eggs when our chickens are cooperating. For the foreseeable future we'll wear medical blue disposal masks upon introductions, same masks also supplied to our guests, but certainly not mandatory in guest cottage or on our property. All bedding from the bed pad, the double pillow cases, two white sheets and a white comforter are washed and bleached after each visit. The 6 various sized white bath towels and two beach towels bleached washed fresh and clean. Same with the three cotton kitchen towels. After three nights if a guest needs fresh towels, we provide. Of course TP, paper towels, tissues and plastic bags provided along with wrapped hotel style bath soap, liquid soap in dispenser Chlorine style wipes are under kitchen sink with a new wrapped sponge for each new guest along with dish detergent. The barbecue is thoroughly cleaned after every visitor. The tile shower is washed with a Clorox Cleaner+ Bleach after each visit.
