Carries Cottage was the perfect accommodation for us. The description and pictures are spot on. It is a lovely & quiet setting, yet only a 10 minute drive down the hill to Kailua-Kona. The cottage was very clean with a tasteful decor. The cottage is situated at the back of the property so it feels quite private. We had every intention of breaking in the new BBQ, but our island activities got in the way. Mark & Carrie are great hosts. Mark met us at arrival and after showing us the cottage, was nice enough to give us a tour of their 'exotic' (from our Seattle perspective) tropical garden. Cool! We were able to meet Carrie later that evening. They're a very friendly and personable pair who made sure we knew to let them know if we needed anything. Their recommendations for hikes, walks, the beach and restaurants were very helpful. I hope we have the opportunity to go back to the Big Island because we would definitely stay at Carries Cottage again.
Thank you so much for a wonderful "base-of-operations" for our stay. The quiet setting while still being near to Kona helped to make our vacation precisely what we were looking for.
The cottage was just perfect for the first leg of our stay on The Big Island. The location was great for day trips exploring and a nice quiet place to return to in the evenings. The cottage was well equipped and very very clean! We sat on the front porch both in the mornings and evenings. Because the cottage is on the hillside it was also much cooler than in town. The grounds of Mark and Carrie's home were beautiful too. We would definitely stay here again. The only tiny negative feedback was the neighboring dog barking in the early morning, but it was just for a short time and with all of the positives about this great place to stay we easily overlooked it.
The stay at Carrie's cottage was a comfortable one. We appreciate Carrie's effort in putting together some printed out maps and guides to provide us some information of the places to visit etc. Carrie and Mark are very hospitable. The cottage was perfect, clean, quiet and cosy. And they were quick and easy to reach.
Carries cottage was everything as described and more.
Carrie and Mark greeted us upon our arrival, though we were a bit late for the promised time. They were so nice to deal with, and gave us enough hospitality/friendliness and the privacy at the same time.
The cottage was very clean and furnished in very lovely and quaint way, and the location was very convenient, too.
Can't recommend enough of this place and the host, as we were so sad to leave and hoped we had longer time there.
Would definitely love to come back.
We were made to feel very welcome in the spotless & lovely cottage. Location is perfect for solitude & convenience. Carrie & Mark were great hosts, offering info to further enjoy Kona. Evening entertainment included spectacular view of the Milky Way. Many thanks.
Carrie and Mark were very welcoming and friendly. The cottage is up the hill a bit so it is very quiet and weather is cooler, yet only 10 minutes to beach, airport, or Kailua-Kona. It was clean and makes for a nice base for a short visit to the Big Island. We enjoyed the early morning rain, listening to the birds and seeing the clear night skies.
