The cottage with a kitchenette and full bath is on a one-acre lot with a small orchard of mango, lime, lemon, orange and avocado trees and a beautifully manicured landscape. The cottage is separate from the main house, so your privacy is assured.
The cottage is in Kona coffee country. There is peace and quite, the sounds of nature, an abundance of flora and an amazing coastline view.
Full use of the cottage, parking area and orchard. Enjoy the fruit when ripe.

My partner Terry and I had been visiting South Kona from our home in Southern California for 16 years. We finally broke down and bought our property on The Big Island of Hawai'i early in 2013. We have a 30-tree mango orchard on our one-acre lot which sits about 800' above Kealakekua Bay. We also own a lot very close to the property, and we are considering expanding the orchard.
We fell in love with South Kona and the expansive views of the coast and the sea - as well as the myriad of activities the area offers - ocean sports of all kinds, hiking, biking, running, etc.
I am retired and live on the property pretty much full time. Terry continues to run his own business and travels around the world. We have a dog named Kona (we didn't name her - she came to us with that moniker!) who loves to play with tug toys. If you visit, you'll see what we mean.
We are avid hikers, and I can steer you to some great spots near our property and around the island. I study Hawaiian and Hawaiian culture at our local Community College, and I am becoming well-versed in matters of Hawaiiana. I was a social worker, a therapist, a professor, a theatre director, and an actor.
We enjoy meeting new people and swapping tales of travels. We love sharing our island with others. Life is Good. Come visit!
