We loved our stay at South Kona Coffee and Retreat. Brad was extremely knowledgeable and down to earth. The accommodations were very comfortable, especially the bed. Outdoor kitchen has everything you need; room has mini fridge, coffee press and toaster. Super clean. Waiting for us was a bag of their very own coffee. The location is great for trekking around the area and when you are back at the cottage, it's quiet and secluded. It's a beautiful drive through a winding roads and small town centres. Although the bathroom is not in the room, it's just around the corner and is private. Great spot!
Wonderful fantastic and yummy experience. We stayed at the whale cottage for 5 nights. Great location for seeing all the sites on the Kona coast side. Brad is a gracious host. He asked what type of coffee we prefer and that blend was ready for us to enjoy in the room as well as a complimentary bowl of fresh fruit!!! That he picked himself from his sprawling gorgeous property. Wonderful tips from his as well about where to visit and where to eat. Super chill and relaxed atmosphere. Exactly as pictured with the exception of the stunning tiled outdoor feeling bathroom that the whale cottage has. Not to disappoint. This place is a real jem.
Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenthalt! Brad hat uns freundlich empfangen und alles erklärt. Wir haben statt dem "Whale Cottage" das etwas neuere "Honu Cottage" bekommen, das uns super gefallen hat. Alles da was man braucht und ein unbeschreiblicher Blick von der Terrasse mit Außenküche über die Plantage bis zum Meer. Bestimmt keine Unterkunft für Jedermann, da man wirklich mitten in der Natur ist - aber wer sich gerne von Geckos beim Frühstück begrüßen lässt ist hier genau richtig. Statt Fenstern ist man nur durch Mückengitter von der Natur getrennt. Toll waren auch der Kaffee, die Macadamianüsse und die frischen Früchte (Papaya und Bananen - lecker!) direkt von der Plantage. Eine tolle Auszeit "im Paradies".
That is just a gem! I had a wonderful time and Brad was a great host. The wonderful smell of the coffee was the first thing i noticed. The perfect place if you want to leave the big island the country way. The bed was so comfortable!
It was a comforting stay. I do usually like to learn areas from locals but I understand the hosts may have been a little busy. They provided coffee the first night but I couldn't seem to contact them later which would have been nice... Id say a overall great beautiful secluded nest is a great appeal for rest after visiting the big island.
I didn't like that the other air bnb guests neighbors are too close and you can hear every word. I do enjoy the Balinese style since it is beautiful but leaves you with no privacy. An unfortunate thing too is we were awakened several times in the morning to domestic violence issues from the neighbors and it almost felt necessary to intervene. The good thing is it's a beautiful locale and relatively cheap. Too bad it's so far away from Kona though.
Brad and Linda upgraded us to the Naia house for our stay which was very nice. Lots of privacy on their property and we hardly saw another person for our entire stay. Very peaceful with beautiful views.
We stayed at Brad and Linda's place whilst we explored The Big Island. We found the farm to be a welcome change from the typical resorts/condos and a wonderful way if surrounding yourself with nature. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place to do it.
Es war wunderbar im "Secluded Tropical Whale Cottage" bei Brad und Linda. Liebevoll eingerichtet und ein kleines Paradies auf der Kaffeefarm in dem es leicht ist alles um sich herum zu vergessen. Brad & Linda haben es geschafft mit aufmerksamen Kleinigkeiten eine Atmosphäre zu schaffen in der wir uns willkommen und sehr wohl gefühlt haben. Wenn wir es nochmal nach Hawaii schaffen sollten, werden wir versuchen wieder bei Euch zu wohnen.
We actually stayed at the Dolphin cottage which is next door to Whale one. It was an incredibly peaceful and relaxing place. The cabins are located on the farm surrounded by lush tropical plants and coffee along with the mac nut trees. I loved going to bed with the sounds of rain.
Brad was very welcoming, he greeted us even though we came late in the evening and showed us around. He pays a lot of attention to details so it all makes you feel very comfortable. Especially I noticed the small candles in the shower and along handrails, it was so cozy and pleasant. Brad would light them every night and every time we came back the atmosphere was romantic :)
The cottage has everything you need almost like at home. Great coffee and organic fruit for you to enjoy! The shower is outside it's very comfortable and private. I liked the outdoor kitchen a lot. It was very nice to cook breakfast on the fresh air.
Some specific things that we have noticed:
- sometimes the mac nuts would fall from the tall tree on our roof :)
- grab your hairdryer
- if your neighbors are loud you'll hear them easily ( we were lucky to stay with a sweet couple who were respectful and calm :)
There is a decent hike towards the ocean with great views! If you take the road right next to the gates it will lead you all the way down, you'll have to walk uphill on the way back but it's worth it!
Un accueil chaleureux de la part de Linda dans un parfait Condo intime et isolé. Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir et nous avons énormément apprécié l'endroit qui se trouve au beau milieu d'une ferme. De plus Brad et Linda on eu la gentillesse d'assouplir leur modèle de réservation pour nous qui étions de passage pour quelques nuits seulement. Ils ont même gentillment accepté de nous envoyer par la poste de items oublié chez eux.
Je recommande à tous cet endroit
