Get away from it all!
This cozy 2 bedroom guest area is located on the downstairs level of the 3 bdrm. guest cottage. The guest cottage is separate from our main home, uniquely connected by decks & stairs. We're on 1.5 private acres close to Kona.
Our private 2 bedroom guest area is located on the lower level of our 3 bedroom guest cottage. This guest cottage is separate from our main house which is uniquely connected by stairways, overhangs and decks.
Our home has a really unique, whimsy feel to it. The entire home including guests quarters and lanai's (decks) is around 4,000 square feet so it has a very open yet private feel to it.
This area is great if you're traveling with a friend, children or just want to enjoy a spacious area at a great price.
There are two rooms and a large sun room/sitting room with ocean and garden view.
The pueo (owl) room has a queen size bed, cable tv, full closet, dresser and garden view.
The bamboo room has a toilet room, queen size bed and full size dresser for clothing and cable television. There is no tv in the bamboo room however there is wifi throughout the entire property.
Each room has it's own private bathroom.
The Pueo room has an outdoor, enclosed full bath. It's definitely "Funky Hawaiian Style". But clean and functional.
The Bamboo room has an "en suite" (in the bedroom) toilet room and an outdoor shower. The outdoor shower is really neat and probably unlike anything you've ever experienced when it comes to a shower! We've had guests that admitted being apprehensive about showering outdoors and say they really enjoyed it afterwards. I've personally seen rainbows dancing in the mist and I'o (hawaiian hawks) circling overhead. At night, shower to the light of flickering tiki torches and songs from coqui tree frogs chirping.
There is a sun room that is accessible via both bedrooms. The sun room has a queen size sofa sleeper and full size couch.
The price is for 4 people. Any other guests are charged $30 extra per night.
There is a mini fridge, coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave and induction cook top. It is easy to create or heat up and enjoy simple meals such as rice, eggs, cereal, toast, oatmeal, soup, etc.
You will have access to the adjacent sun room. This sun room has a really nice view of the pacific ocean and tropical foliage below.
These rooms also have access to the back lanai (Hawaiian deck) which has a teak patio table with chairs and umbrella, a BBQ grill and sink for washing dishes, cups, etc.
We love meeting our guests.
Our small family owns a bakery and cafe in downtown Kona so we work and run errands quite a bit.
On work days we leave the house around 4:00 am and get home in the early afternoons. We usually end up going to be pretty early or just relaxing around the house. On our "off" days, we're usually playing, doing house/yard work or relaxing at home.
We invite you to come and enjoy a complimentary delicious home made NY Bagel and cup of 100% Kona Coffee, Organic Apple Juice or Tropicana OJ. (Available to each guest, one time during your stay). Please enjoy 10% off anytime during your stay with us as well. Our cafe has GF and Vegan options too!
We want you to know that we are happy to see you and answer any questions you have regarding your stay or area activities.
When we are home, if you hear us hanging out in the main house you're more than welcome to come by and say hello! We love meeting our guests, however if you prefer to be left alone and just relax, we totally respect that and it's all good with us.
Once you've booked your stay with us, you will be given our cell phone numbers. We are best reached via text and also via the airbnb message thread.

We live in a beautiful area, nestled in the hills just outside of Kailua Kona, known as Holualoa. Driving down the road to your home away from home, you'll see coffee farms, banana trees and macadamia nut groves. Our neighbors are mostly coffee growers and farmers. You don't see any other houses from our home but are conveniently located minutes from Keauhou Resort and Kailua Kona where you'll find all the modern conveniences of shopping, dining, movie theaters, entertainment, grocery stores and of course wonderful beaches, snorkeling spots and amazing island adventures.
Our comfortable elevation of 1400' allows for cool breezes and no need for AC. In fact, during the winter months (January & February) you'll find it can be a bit "chilly" in the mornings (around mid 60's).
Our home is located approximately 25-30 minutes from the Kona International Airport and 2 hours from the Hilo Airport.
Renting a car is a very ideal when staying at our place and we recommend a GPS, not only to find our home that is privately tucked away in the hills but to also assist you in getting around the big island in general.
We have 3 dogs that live in the courtyard outside the sun room. 2 are big dogs and as you'll see from our reviews, are very sweet and "good boys". In one year we've had only one complaint about "our girl" barking and we can assure you it was unfortunately exaggerated.
The dogs are able to come up to the sun room gate and the "little boy" Maka does have a strong bark (when he does bark).
We spray our yard once a week with a pet deodorizer and pick up poo daily.
There are wild chickens that run around from time to time. There are also roosters (all over the island). The roosters crow at daybreak and if it's a full moon, you might hear a "crow" in the middle of the night.
Coqui Frogs: The island has it's share of coqui frogs. They "chirp" from early evening into the night. People always think they're a sort of night bird. It's a very sweet, pleasant sound. If it's the dry season, you might not hear any at all. If we've had rain, it's a symphony.

The place is quite a few minutes from Kona, placed amongst the coffee farms in a very calm and quiet environment if you neglect the frogs and the calls from the roosters at night. I, who usually am quite sensitive to sounds, loved it.
There are two rooms directly facing the dog yard, the dogs bark quite a lot and can seem a bit scary although they are just adorable.
Try to get the room in top of the garage, that one seems to be the prettiest by far! I really enjoyed our out door shower, it was just great! The garden is lush and the view of the sunset is calming.
Antoinette and her husband are both very welcoming and friendly, in all ways positive and warm. I'd highly recommend anyone without a phobia against dogs or spiders to stay there.
Antoinette is a really nice and helpful host!! Helped us a lot!! We appreciate that warm experiment! Thanks!
Three adults stayed in the 2 bedrooms. While everything was as stated and all convenience were there, the layout was a little awkward for us. Awhile ago there was only 1 toilet, in the other bedroom, but an additional shower and toilet have been added off the 2nd bedroom. The only sink for dishes and cleanup was outside on the patio. The garden shower was nice to use but the new one had some hot water issues. The open, somewhat screened porch was nice to enjoy for reading, great views, but a little too buggy for us. The mosquitos loved me and took away from enjoying the porch. The directions were good and our GPS did a great job too. The gardens were beautiful and we got to "enjoy " the coqui frogs too.
We absolutely LOVED this place! Antoinette is such a great host and we felt more than welcome in her beautiful place. The rooms, bathrooms and the awesome outdoor shower are wonderful. We are super happy to have spent two nights there otherwise we would have probably missed out on this heavenly spot on the "upcountry" Kona side. Also visited her bakery and loved the banana bread!
We would recommend this in a heatbeat and would love to come back anytime!
The rooms were a good size and the beds were comfortable. It gets hot in Kona but since the house was higher up in the mountain, the evenings were cool.
We were greeted when we arrived and given all the necessary items. The BBQ worked nicely and they even gave us some rice to cook. I was a little apprehensive about the outdoor shower - mainly because I was worried about being bit my mosquitoes but it was really quite awesome.
Youve got to okay with dogs and cats since they have a few of them walking around. All were friendly though. The WiFi they provided was also very strong which really helped with the limited cellular connection.
All in all, it was a pleasant stay.
My wife, our two daughters (ages 12 and 10), and I stayed at Antoinette's place for several days. Antoinette and her nice family were wonderful hosts. Their guest houses are lovely, the outdoor shower was private and enjoyable, and we were very happy. They have cats and dogs, which our daughters loved playing with. They were very accommodating when our schedule changed unexpectedly. We would stay here whenever we come back, and recommend it highly.
Antoinette and Johnny were welcoming, warm, helpful, and friendly. The rooms were comfortable and the space was a great size. Beautiful property with beautiful views of the ocean. Wonderful experience!
This is a very beautiful spot with beautiful people. Very family friendly.Everyone there made us feel very welcomed and made sure we were happy.
Wonderful view of horizon and ocean.
Not far from Kona center but felt like away from everything.
Great peaceful sleep with great dreams when we stayed at Antoinnettes.
We stayed in the 2 bedroom part of the guest house with our 3 year old and 7 month old baby and we loved it. The two rooms open onto a lovely mostly screened outdoor sitting area with a beautiful ocean view - we enjoyed watching the sunset from our outdoor sitting area surrounding by the lush garden.
The location is fantastic and convenient for both Kona and the area around Captain Cook which was were a lot of our favourite spots were. John and Antoinette and their daughter were very welcoming and accommodating and were great hosts - the bagels and banana bread were delicious! Our son loved reading all the kids books in the bookshelves and feeding the dogs treats. Our sink and shower were located outside, but once we got used to the idea we really liked the outdoor shower! We thought that this place was great value, nice and clean and in a great spot. Thanks we will be back next time we are in the area!
