We are a much better option to camping as nights on the east side of the island usually brings rain. It is comfortable and gives privacy along with a secured place to keep your valuables while exploring the island. The windows are screened plus they open and close as does the sliding glass door. It is comfortable in summer & winter as this is new double wall construction with ohia wood features.

Bruce and Fern have lived on the Hilo side of the "Big Island or Hawaii Island" in Hawaiian Acres since 2000. Fern Grotto cottage vacation rental is only 7 miles away. In 2011 they bought a condo on the west side in Kailua- Kona at Kona Mansions V. It has been a pleasure for them to host quests on both sides of the " Big Island". Bruce and Fern see to both Fern Grotto cottage and their Kona condo themselves. They are happy knowing guests arrive to a clean and welcoming atmosphere. Special touches given with care for their quests are present throughout.
It takes a good 21/2 hours to travel from one side of the Island to the other and with so much to see on both. Bruce and Fern suggest to anyone coming for the 1st time to stay both sides. More time in Kona if you are a sun-seeker, enjoy walking past shops and restaurants with great ocean breezes, views and white sandy beaches. On the East side stay at least 2-3 days to see the Volcano National Park, waterfalls, rain forest (and yes Fern Grotto cottage does have a lava tube). Also a fun thing to do at night is to go to Volcano and view Halemaumau Crater from both the lodge and museum along the Kilauea Crater rim. Be sure to bring a fleece jacket for those cool evenings. Bruce and Fern provide umbrellas and flashlights at the cottage. Just some of those thoughtful touches your hosts think of!
Bruce and Fern have Fern Grotto cottage vacation rental on the east side and the Kona Mansions condo also a vacation rental on the west side for everyone to enjoy!
