Sorry had to raise the rent to $75.00 a night as our state leaders now want us small guys to pay the same TRANSIENT FEES the Big Resorts pay and it's hurts. Many small BNB's will shut down, not worth renting, too expensive. We will try it and see how it goes.

We are in the country, Rural older local neighborhood behind the Conservation Forrest where there is LOTS of bugs and creatures, it's a NATURE PRESERVE.

The space

New very private furnished cottage with full kitchen located behind main home, for adult guest. Approximately 5 miles from Kailua Kona town, on hillside over looking the Kona Coast. Located approx 3 miles above Keahole Airport approx 5 minutes away. Cottage is backing Hawaii Conservation area, nice size deck in natural forest area. Quiet and beautiful with lots of birds. Occasional flocks of Parrots fly over. Usually have daily visits by Wild Turkeys and Kalish (Japan Pheasants)and an occasional wild pig, Hawaiian Hawk or Owl. There are feral cats, local lizards, etc that come out of the Forrest area from time to time. Perfect for nature lovers. Very quiet, peaceful and relaxing area. It's country, rural, no street lights, I have flash lights, umbrellas and Pancho's for guest. Portable table for eating in doors or doing office work, also two TV trays.

Other things to note

Because we are country and behind us is the Conservation Forrest we have seasonal pest: ants, ground fleas, fruit files, white flies, mosquitoes, spiders, termites which we deal with as they arrive, this is COUNTRY. Pest Control sprays regularly. Also new arrival is Feral cats, use to have occasional Rat/mice problems, now Feral cats which Advocates have "fixed" and examined but has deemed this area a "Colony". Kona is built on lava, lots of rocks. Our yard is lava rock with some grass. Rocky path from parking area to cottage. *Three steps down to cottage, Seven Steps inside cottage up to the bathroom. Guest should be in good shape.

Really nice cottage. Judy was very kind so that we could stay like our home. All items for enjoying beaches in Kona are fully equipped(parasol, boogie board, shoes, chair, large towel for beach). Quiet and comfortable environment in natural forest. We strongly recommend this cottage particularly if you stay long in Kona.

Judy's cottage was absolutely beautiful! My wife and I started our honeymoon here and couldn't have asked for a better place. The value you get for the price is insane! And Judy is such a wonderful, helpful host, she makes sure that everything goes perfect. We loved the book of recommendations that she has out for guests. If you stay here you won't be disappointed!
