“A Great spot Away From The Crowds”
Reviewed 19 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Having previously been to all of the islands and stayed mostly in beachfront resorts, we were looking for a more secluded spot, away from the tourist frenzy and found it at Kope Cottage. The owners, Randy and Atsumi, provide a warm welcome and are available to provide a local perspective on things to do and places to eat. The photos on VRBO accurately reflect the room layout, however, they don't do justice to all the little details that Randy and Atsumi have thought of. Things like fresh flowers and coffee from the property, umbrellas in case it rains, a cooler and ice packs for those foraging expeditions, all sorts of beach gear, and pretty much all the basics in the kitchen to prepare anything you'd like.

The kitchen has a full refrigerator/freezer, a microwave, a large toaster oven, a two-burner hot plate, a rice cooker (even chop sticks), but no oven. This is certainly not a problem since there is a new gas grill on the lanai which we used almost every night. The internet connection is superb, even better than at home and there is a HDTV if you must (we didn't except for the Super Bowl). The cottage has a new HE washer and dryer along with all of the laundry products one could want. Hint: don't pack a lot, you can wash those t-shirts here.

Town and shopping (Safeway, Costco, KTA) are convenient and this is a great base for exploring the island. Volcanoes National Park is a nice day trip as is Hilo over the Saddle Road (which we were surprised to find was one of the best roads on the island). Another plan ahead tip: the Mauna Kea Observatories would be a memorable activity, best experienced when the moon isn't full.

Best of all: either hanging out by the pool and hot tub or coming back at the end of a day of exploring to have that gin and tonic on your private lanai while watching the sun set over Kona and the Pacific Ocean.
