Enjoy this beautiful, spacious ocean view bedroom with its own master bath, large deep tub, and separate walk in shower. Less than 10 minutes from the airport, 3 mi. up the mountain, it is perfectly situated between the best beaches to the north and south of the gold coast of Kona. The elevation is perfect for escaping the heat of downtown and cooling off after a day at the beach. There is plenty of light, and breezes flow through from large sliding glass doors that open out to an expansive ocean view lanai, with garden view and your private table and chairs for that morning cup of Kona coffee. You can relax or meditate with the sun setting over the ocean. You can also enjoy dining on the shared portion of the lanai, also with a sweeping ocean view. There's a porch swing and a view of the tropical garden as well. You will share your space with me, the owner. I have my own private master bedroom and bath on the opposite side of the house, separated by a big living room, double door entry, and a large, convenient kitchen with all that you might need to prepare meals. There is a gas stove and oven, large double door refrigerator with ice maker and water dispenser in the door. The double sink has a 4 stage reverse osmosis water filter. If you're eco conscious, you can join in the household composting process, helping to make soil for the garden, and cook with the herbs grown there.
I have lived on the island for 24 years and have chosen the location because of the views, and the elevation which is perfect for gardening and my one coffee tree. There are limes almost year round, and deliscious tangelos and oranges in season. It is also perfectly located mid way between the best beaches and attractions. My favorite beach is just 10 minutes away. Kailua-Kona is just 15 minutes from the house and shopping and our Costco (cheapest gas) even closer. I will be your personal informational guide throughout your stay, helping you to feel the Heart of Hawaii throughout your adventures.
Absolutely No Smoking, drugs or parties.
Star was an amazing host. She was friendly and sincerely cares about your trip! She will give you her honest takes on attraction sites. The room we stayed in was very clean and beautiful. The bathroom was huge and everything was just right. Thank you Star!

i love star and her house. star is very kind host. she prepared flowers when she knew my wife's birthday. she prepared snorkerling equipments for us. it is a perfect experience .
Star was an amazing host !! Her space is so much bigger than we had thought and the house is clean and comfy. It was great exchanging stories and our only regret was not staying longer !! Star even got up early to make us coffee and bagels to take to the airport !! Thank you Star. Jojo is her amazing dog , so soft and lovable. Highly recommended.
Star's place and her welcome were second to none. Beautiful house and nice room with private bath. The view is spectacular and is probably 10 minutes from the airport. Would highly recommend.
Staying at Star's home was truly a highlight of my stay on the Big Island! Her house is gorgeous with stunning views; the bedroom and master bath are both luxe and extremely comfortable, just as shown.The entire place was immaculate. Location was great too, very close to the Kona coffee belt. It is an ideal place to slow down, unwind, and soak in the beauty of being in Hawai'i. Apart from enjoying the house itself, what I really enjoyed was meeting Star: Star is wonderful. She had everything thought out and ready for my arrival, and was very accommodating with my schedule. She is warm and generous, and I loved hearing her stories as well as her insightful recommendations,which I sought. (She's extremely considerate, so you can determine how much or how little contact you'd prefer). I am most definitely returning on my next trip to BI! Thank you again, Star, for sharing your beautiful home!
We arrived home, and we already miss the time what we spent at Elizabeth's home. Elizabeth's house is so lovely, and our master bedroom is amazing, elegant decoration, clean and comfortable,we enjoyed the beautiful view from the windows and terrace. Elizabeth is so nice, she is a good hostess. we shared a lot of stories of life. she gave us so much advices for our trip in the big island, that's very helpful. We are glad to make friend with her, and we will miss Jojo, her adorable dog.

I am a retired preschool teacher, still working and living an incredible life of 25 years in Kailua-Kona. I have a wonderful dog named JoJo who is companion to my adventures. I love the beaches, snorkeling, and hiking. Just about anything outdoors makes me happy. I love sharing what I love about the island with my guests. I can help you tailor your vacation to be the memory of a great adventure!
