About this listing
Nestled within a stand of lush tropical plants, this unique cottage offers a delightful indoor/outdoor living experience – 3 of 4 walls are screened, opening the studio to the sensual tropical air that is such a wonderful part of Hawai'ian living.
Outside, a covered lana'i and outdoor shower (great after a trip to nearby Ho'okena Beach), are bordered by a bamboo grove and banana trees. A pool and hot tub are all steps away, as are mangoes, avocados and papayas.
Inside is furnished with rattan furniture, a dreamy queen-sized bed, and plenty of space for relaxing. The kitchen is compact and complete – featuring a dishwasher, microwave, 4-burner gas cook top, and convection/toaster oven. Custom-built bamboo cabinetry ties everything together in unmistakable island style.
We loved designing, building and living in our little cottage. It gives us great pleasure to share this love with like-minded guests who are seeking something more authentic than your typical 'condo experience'.
The pool and hot tub are shared with our land partner, and her guests.
We have snorkeling gear, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella that are available for your use. There is a gas grill for your use on the lanai.
Interaction with Guests
There is another house on the property with a full time resident. She will help answer questions, and is available by appointment to take you on a swim with the dolphins!
Island Getaway is located just a 5 minute drive from the beach and Two Step – a great local snorkeling spot. Also Pu'honua O Honaunau, (City of Refuge) a 5 minute drive in the same direction. A must see historical site.
We are in a safe, rural neighborhood. Just a short walk around the corner is the Painted Church, and it's a 10 minute drive to Kealakekua Bay, a great place to kayak and snorkel.
Volcano's National Park is 76 miles further south around the southern tip of the island.
Island Getaway is is about 27 miles (45 minute drive depending upon traffic), south of the Kona International Airport. Although there is a bus that runs once a day around the island, a car is really a must for getting around.
This is a tranquil setting, and we would like our guests to be considerate of this environment.
