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.

The space

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.

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.

If this space is available I would HIGHLY recommend renting it before someone else does. Naomi and Bob have truly provided a travellers paradise and they do everything possible to make your stay comfortable. We stayed here at the end of our trip and was greeted with a couple of cold Kona beer in the fridge and fresh Kona coffee by the coffee maker. This place is tremendous. It's clean, cute, comfortable. The hosts are easy to reach and wonderful to talk to. And it's a very short drive to all of the amenities downtown. We can't express how much this place was the perfect ending to our trip and how I would love to come back and retire in this little slice of paradise that they have provided.

Everything was perfect. We had everything we needed including washing machine. Also the kitchen was equipped with spices and all the stuff you need. The house is exactly like on the pictures. We would definitely come back.

Everything was as expected. Naomi was a great hostess. We enjoyed how clean the room was, and the privacy. The room was clean and Naomi was extremely easy to contact. We even asked her random questions about Hawaii which she gladly answered. Highly recommended!!!

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay than this beautiful mountain cottage. Naomi and Bob put a lot of thought and detail into making this place great and their communication was awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay their again.

We loved this place. Naomi's place is nicely decorated, clean, and conveniently located. Naomi and her family were very hospitable, greeting us with leis and leaving us a pineapple and some drinks. We had no issues and would happily stay again.

This is my greatest AirBnB experience ever! You could not ask for better hosts than Naomi and Bob. Their place is immaculate and has everything that you could need. The location is sincere and 10 minutes from pretty much everything. It is very private and extremely comfortable. There is no doubt where we will be staying on our return trip to the Big Island! Thank you so much Naomi and Bob for a truly remarkable vacation!

Aloha! I have been in Hawaii for almost 20 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 12 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.
