We will plan to meet you upon your arrival. We live in the main house on property and are here if you should need anything or have any questions.
If we're not home, we also have caretakers that live on property that are very sweet and helpful.
We invite you to visit our bakery in downtown Kona as well!
We've lived in Kona for 10 years and absolutely love our neighborhood.
It is located on the cool Coffee Country hillside, just minutes from downtown Kailua Kona.
We lived in downtown Kona before and also in the isolated jungles of Honaunau and this area is a perfect balance between the two.
We are on 1.5 private acres. You won't see any other homes from our property however we do live in a neighborhood and have neighbors around us. You don't ever hear the neighbors, who are mostly mellow coffee farm owners.
This is the place to be.
The public transit can be sketchy sometimes. Gotta love Hawaii!
When staying at our home, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you rent a car.
We do have dogs however they live in the fenced in courtyard and don't have any access at all to your quarters. Cats are also on the property but they rarely go near the quarters too.
The houses are separated enough where you rarely see or hear other guests, however we kindly request that from the hours of 10:00 pm to 8:00 am we are all extra conscious of our neighbor guests. (Conversations, TV's, Phone Calls, laptops, etc....at a lower volume).
Please no cigarette or cigar smoking in any of the homes or decks.
Large beach towels have been provided for taking to the beach.
Please turn off all fans, TV's and lights when you leave for the day.
My friends and us had a nice tow day here. We spend whole day and do not want to go outside. Love the friendly kitty.
The experience at Antoinette's place was great. The cottage is located about 15-20 minutes away from downtown Kona; it is in a beautiful jungle. We had a total of 12 guests sleeping in the 3 bedroom cottage as well as the main house and we were all able to sleep comfortably. Antoinette's communication was fast and efficient (within hours, if not minutes!) If you are in Kona to enjoy easy access to beach and the downtown life, this place may not be ideal. However, if you are here to take your time and embrace the nature and fresh air, this is a gem for you.
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.

I'm Antoinette. Thank you for your interest in making our home your home away from home during your visit to the island of Hawaii.
My husband, Jonathan and our 15 year old daughter are originally from "The Land of Enchantment" (Taos, New Mexico) and have been living on this amazing island for 10 years. We came here after a 3 year adventure in Homer, Alaska.
In 2013, we were blessed by our hanai uncle who sold us his home which gives us the opportunity to share it with visitors from around the world!
After staying at a couple hostels in Alaska, I fell in love the "B&B", "Hostel" vibe. There is something really cool about sharing space with others in a "non hotel like" setting. You get to experience an interesting reality. We're really happy we get to create that here on the beautiful Big Island.
I love nature and am a passionate animal and earth lover. I love full moon nights, stargazing, snorkeling and swimming with dolphins. I'm an ethical vegan.
I love writing, reading, and learning. I'm really fascinated by holistic health, wellness and spirituality.
I love stories about UFO and mermaid sightings and pretty much things super~natural.
Even though I love studying and learning about the spiritual worlds, I am definitely very grounded. :)
I'm also very much into the self discovery and self improvement realm.
Some of my favorite teachers are:
Don Miguel Ruiz, Louise Hay, Lucinda Bassett, Serge Kahili King, Deepak Chopra & Tony Robbins.
My next adventure is to become a therapist and facilitate healing and expansion retreats at our home.
My husband is very mellow and a bit on the introverted quiet side.
However once he gets comfortable, he enjoys chatting. He's one of the hardest working persons I've ever known. He used to be a longline fisherman in Alaska for 15 years and also did crab fishing in the Bering Sea. He is now a passionate vegan too. He's the main baker at our cafe. He enjoys SCUBA diving and working around the house.
Our 15 year old daughter is very sweet and an amazingly grounded teenager. I think it helps that she's been home schooled the last 5 years. She's very athletic and is a Big Island and State Champion 6 man canoe paddling racer.
She helps us at our cafe and runs the front of the house. When she's not working or paddling, this mermaid child loves spending as much time as she possibly can at the beach. She's also an animal lover and vegan.
As a family, we love adventures, relaxing at home and doing home improvement projects. We are solid and tight knit, just enjoying another day in paradise. Hope to meet you along the way.
With Warmest Aloha!
Antoinette, Johnny & Luna
