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.

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.
Because we are on a water catchment system and until we can get our house on solar (we have the highest electricity in the country), we don't have a washer and dryer on site. We do our laundry in town at J&K Laundromat. It's clean, reasonably priced and about 15 minutes from the house.

One of the best vacation experience we had! Antoinette is a wonderful host; and we absolutely loved the house.
For peoples who love nature, hear frogs "singing" at night, waking up with the sun...
Note: you need to love cats & dogs too; and a good GPS is definitely helpful to find the place the first time.
Antoinette place is nice and placed inside a beautiful area, easy to reach from the airport by car.
We didn't use much the house facilities (spent all days around and just just slept there), but I don't see any particular problem.
Only possible problem is with the bathrooms: both are in two of the bedrooms so you could have some problem if staying in the third one and have 'night needs'...
This was my first AirBnB experience and it was an incredible one. Three friends and myself traveled to Kona for a wedding and were looking for an affordable place to all stay together. We had not seen each other in quite some time and wanted to be able to catchup and do activities together. This place looked perfect on the site but you never know how things will look in real life. Upon arriving in Kona, we made our way to the house and quickly realized we were going to get the true Hawaiian islander experience. Nestled on the side of a mountain among coffee farms, this house was removed from the noise and crowds surrounding the resorts.
Antoinette and Johnny were extremely welcoming and friendly. They showed us around the property and ensured we felt at home upon our arrival. They introduced us to the dogs and cats which allowed us to feel comfortable playing with and petting them throughout our stay. For Breakfast they provided us with delicious fresh banana bread and bagels from their cafe along with eggs and an assortment of homemade spreads. I can not express how great it was to start our day in such a casual and warm environment (not to mention the delicious food). We all talked about how staying in the guest house made us feel so relaxed and at home. A hotel or resort can feel cold and uninviting where as this place was the exact opposite. They gave us wonderful suggestions on places to eat (we LOVED Hugo’s) and places to snorkel and hike.
Antoinette and Johnny’s place is serene. You feel as though you’re in a beautiful jungle surrounded by flowers and trees. The house is a lovely three bedroom guesthouse with a screened in outdoor porch and futon. The real gem is a spectacular view from the upstairs bedroom. It is so beautiful no photo could do it justice. You overlook green trees, colorful flowers, and the deep blue ocean below. The sun porch also has access to the fenced area where the dogs stay. It was lovely to wake up and pet the dogs every morning. The outdoor shower is a surprisingly relaxing experience as well.
Overall we had an exceptional experience staying in the guest house. It was absolutely perfect. the only issue we had was finding the place when we first arrived. Their are few street signs around and it’s a little confusing in the dark. However once we knew where it was, we had no trouble getting in and out. All four of us highly recommend staying with Antoinette and Johnny. I know I’ll be looking to them first for my next trip.
