What is available in the cottage and the Kona Area.

Greet guest, introduce them to the cottage then leave guest alone.
It's a local Hawaiian neighborhood.
No real public Transportation in the immediate area, only in town and it's LIMITED. Taxi very EXPENSIVE. Need a rental car for the Big Island of Hawai'i.

I greatly enjoyed my stay in your cottage beside the nature reserve. Loved all the sounds of nature. The cottage had everything one could wish for. The kitchen had everything that a passing through visitor could hope for. Too bad, my partner could not be along. She much appreciated the calendar that you gave me along for her.
Thank you again, Bernie
Alles wunderbar, perfekt eingerichtet. Sehr netter persönlicher Kontakt zu Judy. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
We felt very confortable at Judy's place.
The cottage is new, very nicely decorated and feels quite spacious with a separate kitchen and the bathroom on an upper level.
A plus is that it is located next to a nature area.
It was extremely clean and Judy had thought about everything that could be needed : beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, coolers, etc...
We cooked dinner most nights and ate out only occasionally.
We would be happy to return to Judy's cottage in the future.

Judy was a wonderful host. She provided absolutely everything - and more - that we needed for our stay.
We used her cooler, beach blankets and boogie boards for a day at the beach.
Her house is clean and charming. And it makes you feel at home.
The place is a bit far up in the hills, but the view is worth the drive.
I definitely recommend Judy's place.
Nous avons passè 4 jours extraordinaires chez Judy. L'endroit est propre, douillet, parfaitement conçu pour deux personnes. Judy nous superbement accueillis. Elle est une hôte hors pair, bien organisèe, disponible, prèvoyante. Elle nous a offert d'utiliser beaucoup d'equipement de mer que des voyageurs ne peuvent transporter, conme des chaises de plage ou des planches. Ce fut une belle expèrience grace à la gentillesse se Judy et la qualitè de son accueil. Merci encore Judy !
Judy was awesome! She was very welcoming and provided everything we needed. Her cottage is spotless, private and very comfortable. Staying here made our trip to Kona even better. Mahalos ~Bernadette & Alvin
Staying at Judy's Kalaoa Cottage was a great ending to a great trip on the Big Island.
Judy was very welcoming, greeted us when we first arrived, gave a quick tour of the cottage and let us enjoy the space. The location is a 15-minute drive up the mountain from Kona, in a residential area, but very quiet and relaxing.
Cottage had all the amenities needed: fridge, microwave, oven, coffee maker, sink, stove, shower/bath, tv and Netflix; Judy even provided beach accessories - we were thrilled to borrow beach chairs and boogie boards.
Would definitely recommend - great accomodation for great price, relatively close to Kona.
