Rainbow Dreams Cottage is situated on the beautiful Puna Coast of the Big Island, approximately thirty miles southeast of Hilo. Set amid a century-old grove of coconut palms, the Rainbow Dreams Cottage faces directly to the Pacific Ocean, where spectacular sunrises set the tone for each day. Just a few hundred yards down the road is the picturesque village of Opihikao, which consists of a Congregational Church and an emergency telephone. In other words, there is not a lot of nightlife, except for the occasional shooting star!

Along the coast in this rural region, you will discover special places to explore, from scenic parks to sheltered coves. Three miles from the cottage is exotic Kehena Beach, where palms and ironwood trees frame a lovely crescent of black sand. Two miles in the other direction is MacKenzie State Park, where steep lava cliffs form a rugged, rocky shore. MacKenzie Park also has interesting hiking trails and accessible caves for spelunking. Five miles from the cottage is Ahalanui State Park with a naturally heated salt-water swimming pond. And, a little further down the road is Kapoho Tide Pools for some of the best snorkeling on the east side of Hawaii.  We searched throughout the entire State of Hawaii and explored all of the islands before landing on this special place, which we believe is one of the most spectacular places anywhere.  The scenic Kalapana Kapoho Road on which the cottage is located hugs the coast as part of the old King's trail around the island and is frequently pictured in magazine articles about Hawaii's most scenic areas.
