The cottage is beautiful designed and built with 15 foot ceilings, a rock wall on one side, wood paneling and floors, located on my coffee farm. Very private, surrounded by jungle and only 15 minutes from town at 1200 ft elevation. 1 or 2 adults.

The space

The Cottage is a studio with a spacious covered lava-rock lanai and sliding glass doors that open completely to the outdoors, bringing the “outside inside." It is surrounded by coffee trees, palms, and avocado trees for added privacy. The floor plan has large room with a queen bed, one bath with a shower and a walk in closet. The west facing sliders open to a covered lanai. A teak table, four chairs and a gas barbeque provide for fine outdoor dining. The modest kitchen has a Subzero two-drawer refrigerator, deep sink, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, range/stove, tea kettle, cook ware, cooking and dining utensils. The bathroom shower is unique because it one wall is made from lava rocks. Wifi and private parking.

Holualoa is a quaint town located 3 miles south of the farm. The town is an artist-community and home to numerous art galleries. Mamalahoa Highway is a historic road, the High Road, and runs through the heart of Kona Coffee Belt with many fascinating towns, galleries, farms and historical sites.

Such a lovely, quiet place to stay in Hawai'i! Beautifully designed and fully equipped, a serene garden lanai in a tropical garden and coffee farm. Couldn't be better!

Motter's place is a wonderful retreat. There is a full kitchen and bq but know there are no condiments, salt , pepper etc. It's wonderful to wake in the AM to the sounds of nature. Oddly, there we no insects or bugs.

Beautiful space away from Kona. If you need a natural oasis, this is your spot. There are a lot of nature sounds --birds, frogs, roosters.. so light sleepers be warned. I though it added to the charm

Motter sent arrival info well in advance of our actual arrival; her instructions were clear and easy to follow. The cottage was nice & the lava rock walls were really neat. The jungle-like surroundings were beautiful and we enjoyed the crickets and frogs at night.

Better than advertised, great communication from the host. We were looking for a place near but not in kona (it was ironman week). Welcome respite in beautifully constructed cabin on the slopes overlooking Kona. Gets noisy with tree frogs and chickens but we liked that.
