This vacation home is totally self-sufficient...Off the beaten path and off the Grid. Hale Aloha Aina is an ambassador for green living educating our guests on how simple it is to live off the grid. They really appreciated the experience and often recreate this system in their own homes. Extended stays may have to run the generator to power the system's batteries if there is no sun. The generator is very quiet and turns on with a key. Otherwise the system is efficient enough to just run on solar energy. The appliances such as the stove, refrigerator, fireplace and hot water all run on propane.

If for any reason you need assistance our grounds man, housekeeper and property manager are available to serve you. They are the friendliest people and live close to the hale. As you read the guests comments you will see how fortunate we are to have them and be able to provide this sanctuary for everyone to enjoy. Since it is their work, they take pride in creating the most enchanting playground for nature lovers. There are three acres of mowed lawn with an abundance of flora and tropical fruits that our guests have the opportunity to enjoy. Picking fresh fruit from the trees is one of the favorite things to do as well as just hanging out at the hale. There is so much to explore right in your back yard that many of our guests never leave the grounds.

~ Look for our links below to our Website with more photos and information about the area and our Big Island Cottage. We've uploaded a YouTube Video that will show you some of the beautiful flora on the property.

Hilo Airport (ito) is the closest airport to the cottage which is an hours drive. Kona (koa) is more than two hours away, but most of our guests arrive in Kona and enjoy the beautiful drive to the hale. We do recommend that you arrive before dark. Directions to the cottage and check in information will be available once you have confirmed your reservation.

traveler reviews for this wood valley cottage rental

Our Favorite Place on Earth

Review submitted: August 23, 2009   Date of arrival: August 7, 2009

On our frequent trips to each of the Hawaiian islands, we NEVER go back to a vacation rental twice. Our recent and second trip to Hale Aloha Aina was the first time we broke that rule, because we've never been able to find another place that evokes the level of emotions that this perfect cottage does. There is no better place to be in love!

The Big Island is called big for a reason, and we can say that although we noted very high activity at the volcano and much larger plumes of volcanic fog than on our last trip, we never noticed it at or near the cottage, even though its only a 20 minute drive away. Every morning except one was bright sunshine and clear skies.

We did not stay for the 7th night as originally planned, in order to make it to Kauai for a vacation home rental that required we stay at least 5 days. That was the most expensive place we have ever booked at approx $500/night, a huge place on an oceanside bluff with hot tub, jacuzzi, and every amenity one could imagine, including access to its own private beach. Yet, we found that within a couple of days our minds and hearts were drifting back to your cottage, a place that makes us feel like no other vacation home we have ever rented on any island on 13 island trips.

And so, as we write this review, and since we've returned home a few days ago, we find our minds constantly drifting back to thoughts of Hale Aloha Aina, and the cottage, the outdoor shower, the stars, cooking for each other in a surprisingly well equipped kitchen, continuous walks around the beautiful and expansive property.

If there's a place on earth that brings a higher level or peace, intimacy, love and passion, we haven't found it yet. We'll keep looking, but in the meantime, can't imagine a trip to the Hawaiian islands without an extended stay at Hale Aloha Aina.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Aloha Rob and Paula,

How wonderful that you feel so connected to the lush aina and sweet hale! After five years of renting our home, we never get tired of hearing what a wonderful experience it was for our guests. It fills my heart with joy that we can offer a place of peace and contentment for people like yourselves who just need some 'time out'. It is hard to put into words, but having a chance to just breathe is precious.

For our future guests who are concerned with the vog, it really depends on the trade winds. We can certainly say that it has affected our visibility of the coast line all the way to Kona at times and sometimes the sunrise is a yellow ball in a hazy glow. It is a spectacular site to see the lava enter the ocean and where on earth can you be in paradise and witness an active volcano. The Big Island is like no other Paradise on Earth!

I truly feel that the 'Mana' of Hale Aloha Aina is a living spirit that helps us to reclaim our connection to the Aina (earth) and brings us closer to those we love. Reading our guest comments says it all!

Together Time

Review submitted: June 3, 2014   Date of arrival: May 27, 2014

My wife and I celebrated our 15th anniversary last week at Hale Aloha Aina and had some great together time alone and secluded. It's hard to think of Hawaii as cool nights in a heavily wooded mountain area but that's what this is and was to our delight. Clean, comfortable and secluded - a genuine and unique big island experience.

I highly commend this rental to all seeking the same.

Recommended for: romantic getaway

Owners response: What a great title... Together Time! That says it all and we are happy you enjoyed the seclusion and cool mountain climate. With 13 different climates on the Big Island... Wood Valley is where we choose to make our home. We don't want to LIVE in the high humidity of Hilo or blazing sun of Kona and it isn't too far to visit either at this location. It's great to come home to this mountain cabin after a long day of hiking Volcanoes National Park and exploring one of the most fascinating islands in the Pacific... Our Hawaii!!

Wonderful Stay

Review submitted: May 11, 2014   Date of arrival: April 4, 2014

It was charming, superb, and wonderful! We were amazed at how we had an entire property all to ourselves. The surrounding area was beautiful. Inside it was really clean and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking/serving materials. Not to far away from the black sand beach and the volcano. It was WAY better than any hotel! We would definitely recommend staying here.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: "it was WAY better than staying at a hotel" ... And more affordable... especially with all the amenities provided by home owners. Don't let the low rates confuse you... there are so many home owners offering incredible accommodations giving visitors the best competitive rates. Most home owners are not bringing in much more than it costs to maintain (like us) holding on to the dream of 'living' in paradise. Since it is their home away from home... they include many extras that hotels can't. It really is the best way to travel if you can find the right place for you. Our niche is offering the ultimate in seclusion and privacy for those who want to experience peace, tranquility, intimacy and romance. Our guests have been the most respectful heart felt people we could ask for to take care of Hale Aloha Aina while we are away. It has been a pleasure offering an affordable alternative so everyone can experience the rural country life of Hawaii and living off the grid.

Mahalo to all of our guests since 2001 for making Hale Aloha Aina so successful and for sending your friends and family our way! Many of our guests want to keep this place all to themselves, but we need your help to continue to offer this paradise for all! ALOHA!!
