Peaceful Cove Cottage, HI

Remote Cabins

This cottage is little more than a few cedar walls and two lanais—which is just right. Hidden on three acres of virgin hardwood forest next to Kaimu Bay, on the Big Island, Peaceful Cove (doubles, $95; 808-965-8513) is the anti-Waikiki. A short barefoot-able path leads to your private rocky cove. Hikes along the coast in either direction end at empty black-sand beaches; pick the western route and continue for three miles to get a view of lava bubbling into the Pacific.
