We stayed at Rosie's Retreat from February 1st to 14th. Fell in love with it upon arrival! Rosie is the sweetest person you will ever meet! Greeted with big hugs, we felt right at home from the minute we arrived. Words cannot explain how beautiful the cottage is! Set in the middle of the Hawaiian jungle, you have luxuries such as an outdoor shower, multiple ceiling fans, well equipped kitchen, movies, books, beach chairs, and a really comfortable king sized bed, to name a few! Rosie even supplies the best tour book you will ever find on the Big Island of Hawaii and she would come every week with fresh towels and sheets. The cottage is very well maintained and clean. The location, we found perfect - only 1 mile from the Kapoho Tidal Pools, close to the warm pond, and the drive down Hwy 137 will bring you to so many breathtaking sites, and then right out to the new black sand beach. If you are more adventurous, travel north on 137 and hike down the trail by the big old truck & find the lava swimming pool! Amazing snorkeling - but go when the surf is not too high. It is off to your left at the end of the trail (around the first lava ridge to your left). We couldn't imagine staying any where else on the island. Kapoho is in a little banana belt of the Puna side of the island and our weather was phenomenal! Should you be considering booking this beautiful little cottage, you won't regret it! We loved every minute we were there!
