The Space

Honu reef is an upstairs, non-smoking property with an open floor plan of 880sf, 2 bedrooms, a living area with a large cable-equipped tv, free Wi-Fi, a full kitchen with microwave & oven/stove, a dining area & a fabulous covered lanai. We're located in the heart of Kona Coffee country @ 1200 ft elevation, where there are at least 10 different coffee farms in a 5-mile radius where you can sample some of the area's best brews! We also have a 1 bedroom version of the same exact space available to book for a lower nightly rate if you only require 1 bedroom (holidays/special events excluded). It is listed as Honu Reef 1 Bedroom With Ocean Views.

Guest Access

In the garage closet there are straw beach mats, a beach bag, folding lawn chairs, snorkel equipment & a picnic cooler bag for those beach-perfect Hawaiian days.

Interaction with Guests

Guests basically have the entire place to themselves, but if they'd like some detailed info on the area, we're more than happy to help them out.

The Neighborhood

Great family neighborhood on a private road. Very close to many coffee farms and tasting areas at about 1200' elevation. We are not close to the beach, the nearest shoreline access is down the mountain approximately 4 miles away to sea level.

Getting Around

There is a bus stop near the McDonald's where Ke'e Ke'e St & Hwy 11 intersect, but bus service is VERY limited. Having a rental car is much more convenient, and more of a necessity rather than a "want" on the Big Island.

Other Things to Note

The 40 ft of private road to Honu Reef is paved asphalt with a steep 15% grade. ANY car can get up & down it, no worries =)

Because the house is upstairs and has an open inner stairwell to the garage (washer & dryer location), families with small children are advised to exercise prudence before reserving our home. Additionally, any child over the age of 1 should be considered an extra guest for reservation purposes.

A late check-out of 4pm may be possible with advance notice at time of booking (which will be assessed on a case-by-case basis & may not be available for every stay) for an additional $25 cash payable at time of service. Any guests wishing to check-out after 4pm will be assessed another full night's charge, also payable in cash at time of service.

Unfortunately, due to our location on a small island in the middle of the Pacific & our 3-night minimum stay requirements, any late arrivals after the 1st day of your reservation or early departures before the last day of your reservation can not be refunded.

House Rules

1) Additional guests beyond the number provided on the Airbnb reservation at check-in time can NOT stay overnight and must leave the premises between the hours of 9pm-7am.

2) Upon arrival, you will find our home neat, clean & in excellent condition. We expect it returned to us in a similar manner. The cleaning charge assessed is for normal sanitizing, laundering & cleaning, not to fix a mess left after departure. So please show respect for our home and return it how you found it!

3) This is a family-oriented neighborhood of hard-working people, so please be considerate of others by not making loud noise during normal sleeping hours (ie 9p-7am).

4) If anything breaks during your stay, PLEASE notify us of it immediately so that we: a) Can repair/replace it asap to make your stay more enjoyable, and b) Don't have to scramble after your check-out to repair/replace it before our next guests arrive.

5) Please be respectful of our home & Hawaiian culture by removing your shoes when inside the house.

6) Absolutely no parties, celebrations, gatherings, etc. permitted on premises at any time. The maximum # of guests on the property at any given time is limited to 6.

7) NO SMOKING or ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES on the property at any time. A forfeiture of your security deposit, an extra cleaning charge, & immediate expulsion from the property will result! No refund will be made available for any days left remaining on your reservation.

Failure to follow the above house rules at any time may result in your immediate eviction from Honu Reef without a refund. Mahalo!
