This private tropical cottage is made for two in Hawaiian comfort. It is located in the heart of the Kona Coffee Belt.
The cottage has a full size kitchen and all that is needed to cook up a storm with local fresh fish, fruits and more. Think king size bed will lull you to sleep after a day in the water or touring Volcano NP.
We grow delicious avocados, citrus, cacao, coffee and an assortment of citrus, all the while integrating it into the natural landscape. We use no pesticides ever.
The lovely private fully appointed cabin awaits the chance to spoil you Hawaiian Style. In S. Kona near the best snorkeling spots in the islands. Plush king bed, full kitchen and "green" design.
This is a working farm as are the neighboring parcels. Visitors are invited to learn and participate in the farm activities as part of your stay We pay a nice wage or it can be credited to your account if you elect to join in. This is what we call Agricultural Tourism.
The ocean views here are spectacular and we are only less than two miles to the nearest and a beach, Kaohe aka Pebble Beach.
The cottage is nestled in forest and coffee plantation land and in season guests are free to pick fruit, avocados and bananas.
We have just added a LED TV and its gets the local channels. If you have a laptop and a HDMI video connection you can stream all kinds of movies and shows via our internet WIFI.
The kitchen is huge and with the full size stove one could even bake something BIG.
Just this month (Dec) we installed a new king size bed and guests says it is great
The well-known beaches and diving snorkeling spots are 6 to 12 miles away. Don't leave here without snorkeling Honaunau Bay aka Two Step. Itʻs the best in the islands.
We are at 1500 feet and winter nights can be cool 60"s so come prepared.
The nearest convenience store is 7 miles aways and a full market 12 in Captain Cook.
Please read the cottage terms and become familiar with Air BNB terms and fees. In the BNB terms, please note "As a Guest, you are responsible for leaving the Accommodation in the condition it was in when you arrived"
The cottage occupancy is 2 only. Do to local restrictions, I am not able to grant exceptions.
The state of Hawaii has discovered AirBnB and now is requiring all hosts to collect sales and occupancy tax. The combined rate is 13.25%. That tax is included in the Cleaning Fee for accounting purposes.
Local knowledge will help make for a pleasant stay............. Aloha Kakou !!
Guests are welcome to hike around the farm and experience the integration of agriculture into the natural environment. Come relax and meditate during sunset in the gazebo. For a good workout hike down and up the access road it will definitely get the heart rate up there.
Interaction with guests
I very much enjoy sharing Hawaii nei. I am happy to teach our guests the in and outs of farming in Hawaii as I am earner to get people out on the land to appreciate how unique agriculture is in the Islands. I also enjoy sharing the history and culture of this nation that is also a state.
Other things to note
Access to the ocean is nearby in several spots. Don't miss them.
Ho‘okena Beach. Our only sandy beach ~ 5 miles N.
Honaunau Bay, some of the best snorkeling in the islands
Do not miss seeing Volcano National Park, its always smokin and more.
If you bring some really warm clothes and have the right kind of car, drive to the top of Mauna Kea 13000 feet high. The sunsets will take your breath away, right along with the altitude.

Sorry no pets and NO smoking inside or out. Completely off the grid and self contained so conservation of power and water is the key to the realm.
Have no worries it works well and has plenty of power for simple needs of the visitor. The terms of the rental cannot be altered once the rental has begun. Please keep the cabin clean to avoid pest problems. Please be reminded the Air BnB terms of agreement require the rental be left in the condition it was in on check-in. This excludes the linens they may be placed on the table on the lanai.
I am a semi retired academic yet still working as a small farmer and consultant in the health and nutrition sciences. The Hawaiian culture and spirit is a blessing and inspiration. I love this life, and the culture.
