Interaction with Guests

We try to welcome guests personally to the cottage and make ourselves available to share local insights and address questions as they arise, but otherwise stay out of guests' way (we are happy to provide as much local information as you would like!).

The Neighborhood

For years we escaped on vacation from Portland's gray winters to blue Hawaii and, after trying the other islands, kept coming back to the Big Island for its unparalleled ocean swimming, and to Kailua-Kona for its old-time, 'spirit of aloha' small-town atmosphere. We originally bought a sea-level condo, but found that it was too hot and too touristy for our tastes, so we started looking for alternatives.

The little estate of which the cottage is a part was built starting in the late 1970's. We found its all-wood post and beam construction, cedar interiors, cool location, garden setting and beautiful expansive views almost unique in Kona's home market, and fell in love with it the day we first saw it.

Getting Around

You will need a car or moped when you stay at the cottage unless you bring or rent a bike and you relish hill climbs. There is limited public transportation at sea level, along Alii Drive in Kailua Kona, and around the island via the Hawaii Belt Road if you are traveling outside of Kailua Kona.
