About this listing

This beautiful property overlooks 60 sweeping miles of the South Kona coast line including stunning views of Kealakekua Bay and the Captain Cook Monument. Cottage is the best of Old Hawai'i with all the modern amenities.

The space

This private, secluded and charming Old Hawaii style Ohana (family dwelling) is 5 minutes from beautiful Kealakekua Bay, Manini Beach, and Ke'ei Beach. The bay is famous for its incredible snorkeling, standup paddling, kayaking and opportunities to swim with the local pod of spinner dolphins.

The cottage has a queen-size bed, a well appointed kitchenette, gas barbecue, covered lanai and sweeping views of the south Kona coastline. The full bathroom offers a shower overlooking Kealakekua Bay and the Captain Cook monument. Along with charming Old Hawai'i ambiance, enjoy the modest conveniences of Wi-Fi, Netflix and flat screen TV with DVD player. The cottage is surrounded by a lush tropical garden including palm, mango, papaya, avocado, banana, and citrus trees along with many exotic flowering Hawaiian plants.

This property is well located, close to the beach and within minutes to shopping and restaurants, including a grocery store that carries many local and organic options, plus a weekly farmers market. Within walking distance is the Paleaku Peace Garden where guests can take yoga classes or spend a quiet meditative afternoon. Nearby also is the historic Painted Church and City of Refuge at Honaunau.

There are many hiking opportunities and local beaches waiting to be explored in this rural Kona neighborhood. Peter and Barbara can offer lots of local knowledge as to the little known hot spots of this South Kona community.

Beach chairs, beach towels, cooler and cold packs are available to guests for their beach days.

Please use our directions in the confirmation page. Also check out our 2nd property at Kealakekua Bay Cottage With a View 2!(scroll down). A great substitute if this cottage is booked or if you are thinking of having a longer stay on the island.

Great getaway about 25 minutes south of Kona. Neat slice of paradise. Great experience.

We had an amazing stay! The location is away from the touristy area and a little bit cooler as well. Staying at this cottage is like "glamping" - you're surrounded by nature but have access to a kitchen and a huge bathroom. The view from the cottage and the lanai is spectacular and the best part is waking up to the sounds of birds. We felt very relaxed and rejuvenated from our stay!

We had a very pleasant (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication with Eugene was absolutely perfect! The boiler got broken and Eugene had it fixed in no time! The view is magnificent!

Cosy and comfortable. Sitting on the Lanai and watching the sunset over the bay is just holiday perfection. The view on the bay is breathtaking. We enjoyed the location of Peter's and Barbara's cottage a lot. Not too far from Kona, easy to reach beaches and great snorkeling areas, different restaurants close by. The cottage is really pittoreske, so cosy and comfortable. It is equipped with everything you need. The bathroom is huge and the warm shower with a view is just another holiday special you can experience. We did not have any issues with mosquitos or bugs inside the cottage in case any of you are wondering about the "no windows" info. The fly screens work very well. We would definitively stay at this place again if we come back to the Big Island. Thank you!

From breathtaking views to natural "white noise", the cottages at Red Ti Hale provided an oasis for our mind and body. Engrossed in lush green and pops of color up here, mental decluttering came with ease. We had access to a fully equipped kitchen, cooler, towels, TV, Netflix, Wi-Fi, snorkeling gear, and a binder full of tips on places to see + eat. Eugene (caretaker) responded quickly to anything else needed. This place is great for those looking to become immersed in what the Big Island has to offer. Aloha!

Peter And Barbara User ProfilePeter And Barbara is a superhost.

Peter and Barbara have mixed histories on the Big Island. Peter, a 20 year resident and recently retired, is enjoying all the water sports available within a few minutes of his home, especially snorkeling and stand up paddling. Barbara is newer to Hawaii and commutes from the main land to join Peter with his adventures as often as possible. Both are passionate about the South Kona area and give back to the community that has given them so much by volunteering for Habitat for Humanity and Friends of Manini Beach. Peter is an avid gardener and when not on the water can be found planting, transplanting and trimming in his exotic Hawaiian garden. Barbara, when not following Peter on some bay or reef excursion, is busy identifying and learning the habits of the local birds that share the accommodations on their beautiful parcel of land. Both find time daily to sit quietly and watch incredible sunsets on Kealekakua Bay from the lanai of their recently renovated historic Hawaiian home.
