(1 person, 3 night minimum stay)

The Banana Patch cottage, which sleeps one,  is an open air 12 x 12 room , enclosed in screen and nestled in a grove of banana trees. The cottage is one of 2 alternate energy cottages (Mango Tree  Cottage is the other)  and is fueled by one solar panel.  Guests hear the winds, the rains dancing on the tin roof, the cascading  leaves, the crickets, the falling “torpedo” avocados and ripe mangoes, when in season. The single occupant sleeps on a bamboo frame bed. There is a comfy reading chair, and desk, and an outdoor shower and flush toilet that is shared if there are guests in the Mango Tree Cottage. There is also a kitchenette next to the Banana Patch Cottage with a propane stove, small frig, pots, pans and dishes  

Very simple, supremely natural and very peaceful and wild!

$65/night, plus 13.25% tax , 3 night miminum - - Discounts for week and monthly stays. Contact Akiko



A Time & Place for Personal Retreat

“Everyone benefits immeasurably from a personal retreat- a time and place for living simply, breathing deeply and letting go of all worry so understanding and compassion flower. I can happily recommend Akiko’s Buddhist Bed & Breakfast located on the Big Island inWailea Village north of Hilo.

As you page thru Akiko’s lush and inviting website http://akikosbnb.com of Old Hawaii, imagine the songs of birds, the scent of flowers, the constant play of sun and showers, the bells of mindfulness ringing quietly to guide your breathing .
