We highly recommend to stay in Judy's cottage when you are planning to stay in Kona.
The cottage is right behind the house of Judy which is great because you have your little own place but can still ask Judy any question or ask her for help.
The cottage is very well equipped, has a great kitchen and a bathroom
that is upstairs (which I loved!).
The bed is also very comfortable and the whole cottage is very clean.
It is located just 15 minutes away from Kona, supermarkets and great beaches. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back soon!

We really loved this little cozy and rustic cottage for our four days not that island side!You have good privacy and the most important thing a good furnished place to feel like your at home! Beach stuff, cooler and beach towel all your need for your beach day! Close to everything (we covered captain cook and Waimea easily!) we already miss this place! If we're coming back were sure book there again! Judy was very respectful and she's always there for any questions!
Beach two steps( good snorkeling, even swim with dolphins!
Endroit charmant et rustique, tout ce que vous avez besoin pour vivre comme à la maison! Complètement équipé (stock de plage, glacière et serviettes) si on revient dans le secteur on réserve a nouveau là-bas! Judy est très accueillante et respectueuse!
We really enjoyed our stay at Judy's place! It was a great deal for the area, close to lots of cool stuff, and very cute and cozy.
Judy was always available to answer any questions we had and made us feel very at home.
The cottage itself was very cute and was well stocked with all the stuff we could ask for (umbrellas, towels, soap, dishes, reading materials, even some delicious food)!
We would definitely stay here again!
Nagy szeretettel vártak minket, a gépünk késett ezért éjszaka érkeztünk ami nem okozott problémát. Meleg fogadtatásban volt részünk, köszönjük a legfinomabb mangót ami valaha ettünk. A hirdetésnek tökéletesen megfelel a hely, egy kis gyöngyszem a dzsungel szélén.
We had such a fantastic experience at Judy's cottage! My boyfriend and I stayed for two days and we wish we had longer there! The place had every amenity you could think of, from a cooler to beach chairs and snorkel gear! The kitchen was fully equipped with every utensil. The bedroom was so cozy! There was a nice secluded porch in the back outlooking the woods. It was a very peaceful getaway! We loved every minute! Judy was so wonderful and helpful and accommodating. She made sure checking in was a smooth as possible and she is so sweet! Thanks again
Judy was a fantastic host! She really goes the extra mile to make you feel at home. When we arrived, she greeted us and took the time to show us around the cottage. She had coffee, snacks, juice, fruit, etc. ready for us when we arrived. And she had snorkeling equipment, water shoes, boogie boards, beach towels, etc. available for our use (stuff we would have to be otherwise).
The cottage was awesome too. Very comfortable and located on a beautiful hill. We can't wait to return.
Mahalo Judy! :)
Judy is a great hostess, very welcoming, outgoing and helpful! We were really impressed by her cottage, it contains every needed equipment. It was very clean and comfortable. The cottage has a terrace overlooking the garden, very nice place to sit and drink Kona coffee. It's located in very good point, in a calm area but very close to the airport and Kona. It's the best accomodation we have ever been! Mahalo Judy!
