Thank you Bob and Kady. We had wonderful two weeks in your cute little cottage. How could we ask for anything more. You made us feel like like part of the family.You were so generous to share the fruit from the orchard with us. And Lily what can we say, so friendly and playful. We saw so many beautiful sights from one end of the island to the other. From the Volcanoes National Park to the top of the summit of Mauna Kea. and white sand beach of Hapuna. We enjoyed Hilo and its shops and The farmers market was a real treat. Thank you for letting us enjoy a little piece of Paradise. We wish you many healthy and happy years in Hawaii.

“Quiet, peaceful, lovely”
Reviewed October 23, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Situated on an 8 acre orchard, this newly constructed, charming and well-appointed guest cottage was the perfect central base for exploring the Hilo side of the Big Island. Hosts Bob and Kady were warm and hospitable, and generous with their advice, friendship and homegrown fruits and vegetables. Very close to the Botanical Garden, and only 10 miles north of Hilo.

“Private, peaceful cottage with friendly hosts nearby”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My partner and I scheduled a last-minute trip to the Big Island and stayed with Bob and Kady for 4 nights on the Hilo side. From scheduling (via their associate Kimberly) to the fast security deposit return, everything went smoothly. B&K made us feel welcome from the start, and while their house is next door to the cottage, the set up allows for lots of privacy all-around. The description of the setting and rental were as-represented, and in addition they've stocked the cottage with lots of information about the area. While the spot is definitely rural--a plus for us-- it's a great base for exploring Hilo/Puna and incredibly peaceful and relaxing/romantic.Thanks B&K!

“Perfect Hideaway”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Had a really lovely visit here. The orchard and stream were so beautiful to enjoy every day. Just a quick drive down to Hilo for local attractions, beaches, or about an hour drive down to the Volcanoes National Park. Bob & Kady were wonderful hosts and we enjoyed their company for dinner and they gave us our privacy to enjoy the guest home to ourselves while making sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable. Highly recommendable!

“Amazing location for rest and relaxation!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were looking for a quiet and relaxing spot to vacation after the IronMan 70.3 in Hawaii. The Sun and Moon Orchard exceeded our expectations in every way.

Bob and Katy welcomed us upon arrival with fresh citrus from the orchard and the warmest smiles you could ask for. The property is beautiful with amazing views of the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean. There are spaces for relaxing throughout the property, on the deck by the stream, a couple of chairs tucked into the palm trees, or a table for dining in the middle of avocado trees and endless views.

The location is perfect for getting to Hilo, waterfalls, botanical gardens, and beaches, but remote enough to feel like you were getting away from it all. We were sad to have to leave, but did so feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Thank you again for your hospitality Bob and Katy!
