Interaction with Guests

In the morning, enjoy ocean views with fresh Kona coffee in the gazebo. In the evening, take in the gorgeous sunsets on the expansive lanai. Our property is conveniently located in Holualoa, a quaint artist's village in the heart of Kona coffee country, yet is just a short 5 minute drive to historic Kailua-Kona with its famous beaches, restaurants and shopping. Other unique activities include exporing Volcano National Park, world class Blue Marlin fishing, snorkeling with turtles, or take a front row seat to view the stars from the top of Mauna Kea!
You will need to rent a car to explore all the Big Island has to offer. There is so much to see!
Other Things to Note
We absolutely fell in love with the gardens! Walking through the paths of exotic varieties of fruit and flowering trees, dozens of flower varieties at the Garden House brought us back to the many places we have visited around the world. The previous owner cultivated these gardens for the last 30 years, and we are blessed to be the new owners of this property. A perfect location; private country living, yet just a few minutes from beaches, restaurants, and shopping. Include the ocean and sunset views, a very private pool, perfect temperature at 940 ft. elevation, and it doesn't get any better than this!
My wife and I purchased the Garden House property in August of 2012, and we feel blessed to be the new owners of this unique Holualoa property. We are lifelong educators, currently living and working in Kenya, Africa. After 27 years as public school teachers in Juneau, Alaska, we chose to begin teaching overseas. During our travels we made notes of locations we might want to find ourselves when finished with our education careers. We first came to the Big Island of Hawaii 25 years ago. After a long, worldwide search for our retirement spot, we came back to Kona and purchased the Garden House. Until we decide to conclude our life's work as educators and move to Kona, we invite you to be our guests at our Hawaii Garden House. Please understand we are a no smoking environment. Mahalo!
Main entrance showcases a large lava rock wall that extends outside, providing a sense of connecting the garden to the inside of the house. The outside portion of the wall is full of orchids.
The Garden House is the only place I ever want to stay on the Big Island. The location is perfect, it is its own private paradise, close enough to everything but secluded enough to feel like you're the only people around. Kyra was super sweet and I knew I could contact her right away if I needed anything, but there was nothing I could have asked for, it was all covered. Walking around in the gardens was so peaceful. Everyday we found something new and it all was just so relaxing. Thanks again for sharing your house with us.
