Oliana Cottage


Tranquil, Tropical, Private. The Oliana Cottage is located in Puna Beach Palisades, a short walk to black sand naturist Kehena Beach. Allergy Friendly! Located just minutes away from Kalapana, and the new Poihiki Beach. At times you can hear the waves crash against the cliffs.

Sunlight and gentle tradewinds fill the charming studio Oliana Cottage. 3 hour drive from Kona Airport, 1 hour from Hilo Airport, 45 minutes to Volcanoes National Park. Self check-in available. Please note that there is little to no cell service in this fairly remote part of the island. You will hear cocqui frogs for sure, sometimes quite loud, and cute green geckos may run across your cotage wall. My personal Cancellation Policy is a full refund up to 24 hours before arrival, but you will have to ask me to input this manually into the system, if necessary.

The Cottage (370 sq ft studio w/bath) has a queen-size bed, separate bathroom with toilet and large indoor shower (no sink in the bathroom), and kitchenette with sink, hotplate, microwave, toaster, electric teakettle, toaster-oven, blender, S&P, coffee, teabags, pots, pans, utensils & more. Kitchenette is usually adequate for short stays of 8 nights or less.

It is a short hike down the cliff to the famous black sand clothes-optional Kehena beach. A five minute drive to Kalapana and Uncle Robert's where there is a convenience store, farmer's market on Saturdays, and live music some evenings. Nearest gas station, grocery stores, and banks is in Pahoa town, 20 miles away.

The Oliana Point seen in one of the spectacular coastal photo above is literally across the street. Swim with the dolphins or whale watch in season.

Not a full kitchen, no stove, no dishwasher, no garbage disposal. Only one sink located in the main room. Please see photos.

The Oliana Guesthouse is smoke-free, fragrance-free and pet-free for the comfort of those with allergies.

The Cottage and the main house share a hot/cold outdoor shower, in addition to your private shower, and laundry service is available on request. Please enjoy the outdoor shower, especially good to wash off sand from the beach. All linens provided.

Free wireless internet and free domestic (US, Canada, Mexico) long distance on the landline.

Chairs available for outdoor seating. Anything else you need may be available, please ask.

Happy New Year! Thank you, Babette, for being such a gracious hostess. After backpacking in Volcanoes National Park, your peaceful cottage was a welcome site. We enjoyed the Coqui frogs singing us to sleep each night, the sound of the constant rain on the roof, and we even rescued a freezing gecko that somehow found itself trapped in the fridge. We give this cottage a 5 out of 5 stars!
