The Space

Cottage at the Ocean offers you a very comfortable stay. The property is located on over 500 acres of state land along the Pacific Ocean. It is magnificent!

Cottage at the Ocean is totally self contained.

There is a laundry room that is shared with me and the guests that stay at Bali Temple.

Interaction with Guests

As little or as much as you wish.


The Neighborhood

Kaimu is a quaint Hawaiian Village within the Lower Puna District. Many of my guests feel that living in Kaimu is like stepping back in time. Some compare it to Hana (on Maui), yet Pahoa town is only 9 miles away.

Kaimu weather is known to be the best in all of Hawaii...plenty of sunshine filled days, and enough rain to keep everything green. A short walk away (3/4 mile), is Uncle Robert's Kava Bar which is also Kingdom of Hawaii land, where many the old ways of the Hawaiians are still lived. They host a Wednesday night market, filled with terrific food choices and the best authentic live Hawaiian music anywhere in Hawaii! The Kava Bar is open to the public almost every night, and usually features live music by local musicians. There is also a "Mom and Pop" convenience store for your necessities.

Right out my back door is 500 acres of state land which runs along the ocean ~ all for your hiking desires. The hiking is over lava fields and through oceanfront low lying vegetation. I especially love these hikes in the mornings and late afternoons for the sunrises and sunsets.

I have 2 small black sand beaches very close as well. Again, exceptional sunrise and sunset locations out your back door!

In the winter months, we get to see the whales. At night, we hear the whales jumping and doing dorsal fin slaps. It is really awesome!

Just outside of Kaimu, you can drive the Red Road (a.k.a. Route 130), which is one of the most beautiful scenic coastal drives in Hawaii. It spans about 20 miles, from end to end. Kehena Beach, for swimming, and also where the wild spinner dolphins like to frequent, is located 3 miles down the road.

The Geothermal Warm Ponds, Poho'iki Boat launch and 12 month surf spot, Green Lake, and Kapoho Tide Pools are more spectacular locations along the Red Road.

There are multiple activities around Volcano National Park: spend your days hiking the numerous trails throughout the park! Visit Kilauea Cauldron, visit Pu'u O'o vent, visit the Jagger Museum and learn all about the Volcano. Take a helicopter over the active volcano to view the lava. When the lava is flowing into the ocean, hike out with a guide for this splendid visual experience!

City of Hilo and Hilo Airport are 35 miles away. Pahoa is 9 miles away.

Visit the huge and dramatic waterfalls just north of Hilo.

Be sure to check out all of the Local Farmer's Markets, with its variety of foods. Hilo Market is Wednesday and Saturdays from 8 to 2. Pahoa's Makuu Market is Sunday from 8 to 2. 
Uncle Robert's Market, just 2/4 mile from Bali Temple is Wednesday night and Saturday morning.

Pahoa offers very good restaurants for your dining pleasures, grocery shopping choices, gift shopping, banking, gas, a Long's drug store, and more.


Getting Around

You will need a rental car during your stay.

Upon booking, I have a local area map and a list of this area's activities to provide you with.


Other Things to Note

Before I created Cottage at the Ocean, this property was a part of a Buddhist's Meditation Retreat. It still carries this peaceful and tranquil ambiance to this day!


By the time my guests leave Cottage at the Ocean, they feel refreshed and renewed.

This is a deeply relaxing setting.

Bali Temple is a Sanctuary. You will not find loud parties and music here, and I ask that you respect this way of life.

Bali Temple 160 Degree Oceanfront Ocean Views!

Gorgeous and Well-Appointed Bali Temple offers 160 degree Ocean Views and a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful Hawaii experience that will leave you fully rejuvenated.

Bali Temple is truly a unique and special place to land in Hawaii, and is known for its dramatic setting, beautiful architecture and luxuriously well-appointed amenities.

Bali Temple is located right on the 1993 lava flow which has created 160 degree expansive Pacific Ocean whitewater views for your enjoyment. There is a private black sand beach a few hundred yards away to enjoy year round sunrises and sunsets and watch the humpback whales breaching during the winter months.
