About this listing
Our cool and comfortable cottage has a truly relaxed feeling! It comfortably fits two and is centrally located between hot beaches and cool mountain hikes. You're just miles from popular downtown Kailua-Kona, food, shopping & ocean sunsets.
We are only about five miles from town located up Hualalai Mountain. Our guests tell us they enjoy the cooler elevation after a long day exploring the beach or shopping in the heat of town.
Interaction with guests
One of our greatest joys is meeting new people & discovering new cultures. We own a successful photography business which means we have many or "choke" opportunities to see the beauty of our island & offer you a guided experience when desired. The more we know about your interests the better we can serve you.
As a bonus, our guest will receive a discount on a beach portrait session or a photo day.
We love our Hawaiian lush neighborhood. Our street has been nicknamed 'Avocado Ave.' because there are so many lush trees and often there is plenty to pick up as you walk.
Just up the street we have some favorites: including, hikes off Hao Street, Kona Mountain Thunder for coffee, 'A Walk in the Clouds' and much more to explore.
The best way to get around is to rent a car or 4 wheel drive. (We have off street private parking for your convenience)
Other things to note
We will provide coffee & tea. Also, we have avocado, lemon, banana & allspice trees that we offer our guest when in season.
We have high expectations on ourselves for a clean and comfortable place for you to enjoy. Please help us to keep it that way with no smoking on the property.
Aloha! I have been in Hawaii for over 14 years and I live here with my husband, Bob, who is a professional photographer and our youngest son, Calvin. I grew up helping my parents to manage rentals and I have owned a rental in Virginia Beach for over ten years and our current rental for over 9 years. I love great food, hiking, diving, traveling and meeting new people. I have been blessed by the guests that have traveled from many countries and the joy of sharing my love for Big Island Hawaii.
