Es war wunderbar im "Secluded Tropical Whale Cottage" bei Brad und Linda. Liebevoll eingerichtet und ein kleines Paradies auf der Kaffeefarm in dem es leicht ist alles um sich herum zu vergessen. Brad & Linda haben es geschafft mit aufmerksamen Kleinigkeiten eine Atmosphäre zu schaffen in der wir uns willkommen und sehr wohl gefühlt haben. Wenn wir es nochmal nach Hawaii schaffen sollten, werden wir versuchen wieder bei Euch zu wohnen.
Un accueil chaleureux de la part de Linda dans un parfait Condo intime et isolé. Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir et nous avons énormément apprécié l'endroit qui se trouve au beau milieu d'une ferme. De plus Brad et Linda on eu la gentillesse d'assouplir leur modèle de réservation pour nous qui étions de passage pour quelques nuits seulement. Ils ont même gentillment accepté de nous envoyer par la poste de items oublié chez eux.
Je recommande à tous cet endroit
My girlfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights Nov 9-15. Brad was very welcoming and had lots of good ideas for things to see and do localy. The bathroom is in a seperate room attached to the bedroom. The bathroom has a nice open feeling which we enjoyed but the shower was impossible to maintain any constant temps. The kitchen area is nice and it is outside with a nice grill and kitchen utensils and dishes. This kitchen is shared with the other cabin that is right next door. This was a bit of a surprise. If your looking for lots of privacy this may not be the place for you, if theres a couple staying next door you can hear them talking and in order for them to get to their bathroom they have to walk right through the shared kitchen area. When you have the area to yourself it's awesome! The cabin was small inside but had a big comfy king sized bed, microwave, coffee maker, fridge and satelite tv. More than enough amenities to be comfy. We really enjoyed the macadamia nuts and kona coffee and fresh fruits right off the farm. Delicious. This place is 45 min away from kona. Overall we really enjoyed staying here, the area is really nice. Mahalo
Richard and Jen,
Brad & Linda had our names on our parking space, & Brad greeted us on the driveway, chatted & led us to the cottage. Our names were on a sign by our door, welcoming us. The room is small, simple, outfitted with a huge bed, a tv, small fridge, French press, fresh fruit & coffee. Nice private bathrm next door, & shared outdoor kitchen down the steps. Beach gear can be borrowed, & we did.
This property abuts hwy. 11, so the neighborhood is just that, more properties abutting the hwy. We learned quickly we must pay close attention to where to turn into South Kona Coffee.
I was made to feel extremely welcome. Complete with the chalk board sign telling me so. I was given the lay of the land and told to help myself to any of the fruit growing around me and to ask about anything I needed. Brad was really kind and helpful and the place itself is absolutely gorgeous! It really is paradise on earth. They have thought of absolutely everything and I couldn't wait to get back there after my day of adventuring to drink in the atmosphere and the view as the sun set. It was magic!
