We have bus service at the entrance to Cook Cook Rd. on Hwy 19 that is capable of island wide destinations. Should you rent a car, free parking is available on property.
We are situated in the "coffee belt" of Kona, in Captain Cook, Hi at 1400 ft. elevation. Natural trade winds keep our area cool and comfortable. During the winter and spring extra blankets are provided if requested. Our average temperature is a cool 70-84 during the day and in the high 60's to low 70's at night. We are located near many points of interest. Keahou Bay/Kealakekua Bay (15 minute drive) is excellent for snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. Across the high way is a historical functioning coffee farm that offers tours to see how and what is involved in keeping a coffee farm thriving. There is Botanical Garden roughly 500ft. to the south of us where many indigenous plants prosper and various classes are offered. Nearby activities include hang gliding, zip lining, surfing, paddle boarding and swimming. We are in walking distance to a shopping center, post office, bakery, grocery store, hair stylist and several local restaurants. A 15 minute drive takes you to downtown Kona filled with a multitude of shops to collect your souvenirs. We are a 20 minute drive to one of two National parks in Hawaii. Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Park which offers field trips and programs related to ancient Hawaii. It is referred to as City of Refuge as in olden times it was used to harbor ancient peoples and royalty from their enemies. The other park is on the east side of the island (Hawaii Volcano National Park). Our island is very unique with rainforests, a desert, an active volcano on the east end of the island, two world known mountains of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, beautiful beaches and a multitude of farms filled with exquisite orchids, fresh vegetables, coffee fields, Mac Nut farms and many exotic plants. We have a farmers market within walking distance that opens every Sunday. There are also many other markets in a 10 mile radius. You are able to drive around the island in a day, visiting all the various regions and enjoying all that the Island of Hawaii has to offer. Imagine, traversing the often snowy mountains in the winter to swimming in our clean, blue pacific waters, watching the most spectacular sunsets and sunrises, embracing all of God's wonders during your trip here.

A L O H A,
My husband Kevin and I were both born and raised in Kona. I am of Portugese decent, the third generation born and raised here! Kevin is Asian and his dad was born in Kona and his mom was born and raised on Maui. Kevin is a sponge for trivia and detail, will be able to answer most of anyone's questions. Kevin is now retired after working for the state for 33 years. He is now working on his "honey do" list that is quite extensive!. I am a registered nurse involved with home health for many years. I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their homelands and cultures. I have a passion for raising orchids and have a collection of about 100. I am an avid cook, dabbling in many ethnic cuisines. I also enjoy sewing and many crafts. We share our home with Prissy a 9 year old Shit Tsu who has Kevin wrapped around her paw. She is a tiny thing and is friendly, calm and quiet. She loves laying in the morning sun and belly rubs are her weakness. I have a grown daughter and son who both reside on this island. I am grannie to 3 granddaughters and 2 step grandsons. We look forward to sharing our home and aloha with all who are looking for a relaxing fun filled vacation on our beautiful island. You will enjoy your private space here. Just call upon us with any needs and questions.
