The renowned white-sand beaches, golf courses, 5-star resorts, spectacular hiking, vistas, boat tours, coral-reef snorkling, whale watching, sumptious dining, shopping, and more awaits you. Get ready for Hawaii – The Big Island – and stay with us at Aloha Vacation Cottages where far away never felt so close to home!

Our visit here has been fantastic. We’ve kind of broken the fun barrier!
Diving – night + day – with Manta Rays, turtles, and our favorite – Lauwiliwilinukunuku’oi’oi [fish]. And, all the while hearing whale song under the water! Our bird watching was great, too – Kalij Pheasants, Apapane, and the elusive Elepaio. Your guest accommodations have been surperb with every detail thought of – we’ve been so well supplied in the kitchen, etc. Honestly, we’ve stayed at many vrbo [vacation rental by owner] places across the country and by far yours is the best appointed – the details make the difference! We’re sure we’ll see you again as we continue to seek our next home here on the Big Island.

This wonderful cottage exceeded our expectations, truly. Your attention to detail and the many extras provided made us smile. You think of everything! We found this to be  a perfect location to explore in many directions without the crowds in other places. Your South Kohala area is a lot more relaxed town than Kona, yet had everything we needed. When the body receives honest exercise whether hiking, snorkelling or swimming, when the eyes observe lush scenery, expansive views, ancient ruins, whales and rainbows, when the fuel comes from your pineapples, papayas, bananas and oranges…how can you not be rejuvenated, inspired and uplifted?  Many thanks! We look forward to seeing you again. 
Dennis & Lorna, Washington


So, start packing!
It's time to dig out your bathing suit and sunscreen and plan your Hawaii vacation on the sunny Kohala Coast at our Big Island vacation rentals. Languish on soft white-sand beaches and swim with the turtles in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean.  Keep your eyes open for the whales surfacing with their young...and dolphins playfully splashing through the surf.

Our Big Island Hawaii vacation rentals provide the comforts of home with generous amenities. Your cottage is fully equipped and ready to move into. All you have to do is arrive! We take care of the rest so you can relax, discover, and enjoy the wonders and beauty of Hawaii.

Hale Kea Cottage
Hawaii Big Island Vacation Rentals.

What a relaxing, private home from which to enjoy this different and so beautiful island! Far from the maddening crowds, near to friendly folks, this cottage made for a fine restfull vacation. Our hosts provided us with all we needed and more. We were comfortable, felt peace in this quiet atmosphere ...and we'll take this with us as a reminder that we must return soon. – Gary & Marylin, California

Welcome to the world’s geological real-time classroom!
Forget about virtual reality – this is the only spot on the planet where you can get up close and intimate with an active, flowing volcano!  The Big Island is still growing…come see the youngest real estate on the planet being formed before your eyes!

Hawaii's Big Island is abundant with diverse eco-systems affording you infinite possibilities for cultural, culinary, natural, and spiritual adventures visiting ancient sacred spots. The renowned beaches of the Kohala Coast will refresh you, the waterfalls of Hilo will awaken your senses, Kilauea's crater, the world's most active volcano, and the summit of Mauna Kea will humble you with their power and majesty...the Big Island holds the ultimate in experiences for any age.

We had 5 glorious weeks here split between the two cottages. We felt at home right away. [Based here] we explored the Big Island all around. The insider information you provided was very much appreciated. The place was always nice to come home to every day after a good day out. Once in a while it was also real nice to stay home and enjoy the place which is very comfortable and relaxing. We had everything here. The cottages are located in one of the most pleasant areas on this island. The climate is dry and warm but not stuffy or humid. The nights are cool for sleeping well. We loved going to Waimea town [10 minutes away] which was easy to reach to shop and experience the local culture. It's just a beautiful place. The beaches down the road are the most outstanding on the island [12 minutes] -- especially our favorite one, Mauna Kea beach. Thank you for everything you did to make our stay memorable. - Jaye, USA

Whether you’re dreaming of a quiet retreat curled up with a book or a different adventure every day, now is the time to travel to Hawaii's Big Island where you can play in the sunshine 365 days a year. Aloha Vacation Cottages is your special spot for a family escape, a Hawaiian-style wedding, honeymoon, anniversary, or a kick-back holiday.  Need to put a distance between you and your daily reality but don't want to be disconnected? No problem! Among generous amenities, you'll enjoy convenient free high-speed wireless Internet access 24/7 in the comfort of your Hawaii vacation rental cottage.

The cottage was perfectly stocked, the location could not be better for seeing the entire island, and the hosts are most helpful. The weather was comfortable, if not outstanding, during our 10 days on the island. A cloudy day [in May] at the Mauna Kea beach is still a lot warmer than a spring day in Oregon. We thank you for providing such a comfortable abode for our stay. It was perfect in every way. If we return to the Island, we will give you a call. And, we will also recommend your cottage to anyone we know headed your way.

We assumed that Hawaii would be nice…but we must say that we were impressed with how much of it is pristine coastline…and so clean. We really appreciated the wonderful beaches on the Kohala Coast in your area. Now, having that coastline treasure just minutes from our lovely cottage was more than we ever expected. It was convenient located to everything we wanted to do. From the hiking trails to the deserted gorgeous beach spots, we found the peace we wanted away from the commercial fray. We enjoyed living in Hale Kea Cottage very much. It was peaceful and quiet. We got the best nights sleeping here. Thank you for all you did to make it feel like “our home”. We’ve rented places before but never one that was so well thought out to meet everyone’s comfort. Your homemade mac-nut ice cream was a very nice touch indeed…as was the fresh fruit and the fresh baked malasada buns (they were still warm). We used your Big Island guidelines for us in the cottage every day and we are certain that we would have missed out on many special places without it. We’re not big on eating fish at home but we have to admit that the fish you guided us on was fabulous….and with the recipes from the cottage kitchen, we ate beautiful Hawaii fish in the best restaurant on the Big Island….at our own BBQ on the deck.
Thank you for everything. Anne & Edgar, London.

Thank you so much for the wonderful accommodations and all the extra amenities in the cottage. We loved the fresh fruit basket and the well-supplied kitchen.

We love the Big Island and will definitely come back to stay here again. You helped make our honeymoon perfect! Mahalo….See you again, soon! Leigh & Mike, Maryland – USA
