  • Charming cottage that is in a great location with just a short walk to Manini beach! My wife and I enjoyed our stay. Ron and Karen are very careful to respect your privacy, but are around if you have questions or want a brief chat. They have many very good recommendations for things to do on the island that helped to make our stay special. There are numerous details in this cottage that have history and meaning. Ask Ron about some of the components, they come with a good story!

  • The cottage is so cute and charming to stay in. Karen and her husband were amazing hosts. As we got in, Karen showed us around to the beach and gave us insights of the area. Snorkeling at the beach was amazing. Lots of bright-colored fish by the reef. We had a very relaxing stay and enjoyed the decor of the cottage.

    Samantha2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, great cottage, great hosts. A real gem. Ideal for snorkelling, kayaking, enjoying the sea shore and beautiful sunsets. Encounter with dolphins almost guaranteed.

    Felix2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • The Bali Cottage is a rustic, comfy space and hosts Karen and Ron are exceptional. They will bend over backwards to make sure guests are comfortable; the location is awesome, shady, and a 5 minute walk to Manini Beach. Everything you need is available in the cottage: coolers, beach towels, boogie boards, and toiletries just in case you forget yours! Go to sleep with the gentle sound of the surf... and wake up with the sun shining in your outdoor shower!

    Robin2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Stay here! It’s definitely more of a “glamping” vibe but so amazing! We loved waking up to the sounds of the ocean and wildlife. Very friendly hosts! The snorkel gear was awesome to have when we hiked to Captain Cook!

    Amanda2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most unique and memorable places I’ve ever stayed. Karen and Ron were very friendly hosts, who made sure we felt right at home.

    Bob2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • There are not enough words to say how wonderful the Bali Cottage and Karen are. The space is AMAZING, the only negative thing I can think of is now all other Airbnb’s or even hotels or even my own home will all fall short of the magic that is the Bali Cottage. Karen is super communicative and welcoming and even walked me down to the beach when I got there, which btw is also amazing and charming. Literally could write a book on how much I loved my stay. Thank you again Karen for sharing your space with the world!

    Leah2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • A magical place! It has so much atmosphere and quirky touches. Kitchen had everything we needed and we spent a lot of our time on the porch. Didn’t miss the lack of air conditioning for our visit in November. We really settled in and enjoyed our 3 days immensely. You’re not just staying at a place, you’re really being hosted.

    Captain Cook, HI, United States

    A bright and modern room in a stunning, open air house that is just 10 minutes to the nearest beach and to town. Enjoy a beautiful pool, ocean views from the lanai, and laid back Hawaii living. The house has a koi pond, eclectic decor, and backs out to a beautiful nature reserve.
    The Koi House is a home that echos a relaxed way of life. It is an open air space with plants, a koi fish pond, natural and upcycled materials, and serene forest & ocean views. * This is a room in a shared space, with 2 other rooms nearby. The vibe is casual, communal and friendly. * The room, like most homes in Hawaii, has no air conditioning. There are 3 fans in the room. Summers, especially, are hot. Please keep this in mind when booking. We live here year round without A/C but highlight it here since we know it is important to some travelers. * Young kids live in the main part of the home.
    The neighborhood is very central to Kona town, but quiet and suburban in style. Our house sits at the edge of a nature reserve, so it feels rural and private. The location is really convenient- close to the highway that takes right into town within 10 min, close to Alii Dr. right along the ocean (by Magic Sands and Kahaluu Beach park), close to many snorkeling locations down south.

    Kailua-Kona, HI, United States

    This is a very small space that is meant to serve the basic needs of travelers on a budget. Comfortable, clean, detached studio guesthouse conveniently located close to downtown Kailua-Kona yet removed from the hustle and bustle in a residential neighborhood. 20 minutes from the airport.
    This is a very small space, approximately 300 sq ft. Perfect for solo or couple travelers on a budget. It will meet your basic needs with a comfortable place to sleep, shower, a microwave, dishes, refrigerator, freezer, coffee maker, and two fans. The room can get hot during the day, especially during hotter times of the year, yet since it is located at a fairly high elevation it cools down nicely at night. Two fans provided. There is no closet or dresser but there are some shelves that can be used for clothing storage. Wifi provided. Conveniently located a mile and a half from Safeway and Walmart and approximately a 10 minute drive from downtown Kailua-Kona. This is a very old Hawaiian neighborhood and the space is an old structure. Although it is clean and comfortable, this is Hawaii, please do not be frightened if you encounter some ants in the unit. The shower is very old and has collected some stains over the years but I assure, it is scrubbed after each guest checks out. Must be okay with animals as there is a cat that lives on the property and hangs out in the carport area nearby the unit and will most likely come to say hello. He does not have access to your unit if you do not want him to. There are also two dogs that live on the property but you will most likely not encounter them as they live in the main house and stick to the backyard. The houses in this neighborhood are close together and windows are left open for a nice island breeze so please expect to hear some level of neighborhood life.
    Old residential neighborhood. Home is located on a quiet cul de sac. 1.5 miles from Safeway and Walmart. 10 minute drive to downtown Kona and 20 minutes from the airport.
  • Super clear and timely communication with easy check in. A perfect little spot for a traveler on a budget.

    Megan2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! I’ll definitely return.

    Ray2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Hannah’s place was perfect for our one night stay after a long flight from NYC. Easy check in, comfy bed and some nice reading material about the big island made for a short lovely stay. Also appreciated the soft fluffy towels to wash the long plane ride off (it’s the little things :) Thanks Hannah!

    Nitasha2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very easy to get to from the airport using google. Great location to downtown Kona (about 8 min drive). Very clean and quite. Exactly like the pictures! Great space for the price.

    Patricia2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This spot is excellent if you need a spot to stay close to the airport! The bed was super comfortable and the host provided us with two towels! There were two fans to keep you nice and cool. Ideal for a couple or solo traveller. We were only there for one night and was staying at another Airbnb for the week. The only reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars was because it wasn’t the most clean.. it smelled a little musty and there were splatters all over the mirror in the bathroom.. it’s super convenient but I probably wouldn’t stay here for more than a night or two..with that being said the host was very quick to respond and overall was a pleasant interaction/experience.

    Sav2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great as a stop over near the airport--had everything you need! Hannah was great, and answered my call when I got lost. A very gracious host! Thank you!

    Cindy2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We felt comfortable and can recommend it. Unit larger than expected. Functionally furnished. However, there is no storage space. No closet, no clothes rail, few hooks. The fridge in the room runs quietly. Microwave, coffee machine and basic kitchen equipment available. Wifi stable. Cleanliness ok, same as bed linen and towels. No roommates with multiple legs. Wash and dry for free. Quiet surroundings. Pure residential area in the hills in front of Kona. Parking in front of the door. 5 minutes by car to the next Walmart / Safeways. From 10 minutes by car into the tourist bustle. Easy check in and check out. Contact the landlord only in writing, not in person. Hannah always replies super quickly. In my opinion, the price-performance ratio was very good. It was enough to sleep. We would book it again for this.

    Markus2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Hannah's place is a great spot for arrival/departure days - easy access, clean, and convenient.

    Kailua-Kona, HI, United States

    Aloha and Mahalo for visiting my listing. "Pl.note that I don't have included the Transient /Ge tax ( 14.50%) in my price since it would reflect in the fee you pay to airbnb. I will collect it upon arrival." This place is nesteld on the slope of Hualalei mountain inmidst of coffee farms, from this cooler elevation (1200ft.) it is only 15 min./7 miles to Kailua -Kona, the nearest Beaches and Supermarket.
    This downstair apartment is fully private with private entrance, bedroom has a queen bed, bathroom with bathtub/shower, walk-in closet. Lanai ( Porch) with view. Kitchenette has a fridge, microwave, toaster oven, electric skillet and electric pot, toaster, coffee maker, electric water kettle, rice cocker and a blender. Linen, towels and beach towels are provided. Free wireless internet, use of BBQ, car port. At 1200 elevation it is nice to come home from a day of activities at the beach to a cooler climate and quiet neighborhood to relax and watch the sunset from the lanai with view.
    It is located in the midst of the famous Kona Coffee region, just 1 min. north from old charming Holualoa town with many Art Gallerys, a grocerie store, post office, coffee shop, and a wonderful outdoor restaurante (slow food). In just 12 min. ( or 7miles) you are in Kailua Kona town or at the nearest beaches.
  • The apartment is perfect! It is very well equipped, clean and offers a very nice view to watch sunsets. We enjoyed the stay very much and can just recommend it!

    Melina2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • A quiet space a little away from Holualoa Town, a large site with lots of fruit trees and trees. There is a two-story house in that space. The second floor is the host house and the first floor is the guest house. There are many similar homes around the property, in a quiet, relaxed and lovely area away from the hustle and bustle. Located at the foot of Mount Faralai and away from the sea, it is not too hot and cool. It's a bit cool in the morning and evening, so it's a good idea to have long sleeves. Rooms are clean and well cleaned. Cooking utensils are available, and there are rice cookers, microwave ovens, ovens, electric pots, hot plates, toasters, coffee makers, etc., so you can cook yourself without any problems. Since there is also a coffee mill, you can grind the purchased Kona coffee beans and drink it immediately. There is also a cartridge type water purifier, so there is no need to buy water. In addition, there are a lot of beach gear, and beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler boxes, snorkels, cool bottles, etc. were handy. The view from Lanai is a lot of trees underneath, the town of Kailua-Kona and the vast sea far away. Every day I spent watching beautiful sunsets. The lanai is large, so you can eat at the table or relax on the sofa. Rent-a-car is essential, but it is about 15 to 20 minutes drive to Kailua Kona, Keauhou shopping center and beach. Every day I went to KTA, Safeway, Target, Walmart and Kahaluu Beach. Check-in and check-out were easy, and the host lived on the second floor, so there was no need to receive or hand over the keys, just putting the keys on the table. The host woman is very kind and will answer me politely if I have anything, and I'm on the second floor so I can go to listen immediately. It keeps your private well, so you will rarely meet and help you only when you need it. I think it is the best location to spend your time on the Big Island slowly and comfortably, but I think it is a good distance for those who are actively moving to Hilo, Volcano, Mauna Kea, North Kona and many beaches, I went many times during my stay. Especially in the middle of the Kona coffee cultivation area, you can easily go around the coffee plantation everywhere. I stayed for about 3 weeks, but anyway, I found the location, environment, room and host to be satisfactory.

    Hiroshi2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Karoline and her dog Hano are lovely hosts and her place was just perfect for our stay on the big island! Karoline has a beautiful house and guest apartment. Everything was sparkling clean and decorated in a cozy hawaiian style. We cooked a lot and were genuinely surprised by how good the kitchen devices (mixer, pans etc.) are! The whole apartment is very well thought through and Karoline goes above and beyond to ensure that her guests enjoy their stay. She even provided us with fresh fruits from her own garden! She also makes her own soapes and pays special attention to the environment and holding a sustainable houshold. Hano is the cutest, a very friendly, goofy and even a little shy doggo that one cannot help but love. We also loved the view from the apartment. One can see the ocean and watch the most amazing sunsets whilest sipping on a cold Big Wave or Longboard. So, if you get the chance stay here and enjoy this beautiful island from the very best airbnb.

    Rahel2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • It was wonderful place She had everything what we need . We wish we want back to there for month to stay . Thank you

    Jennie2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Spectacularly natural, lush surroundings.. beautiful garden, flowers fruit and coffee. A delightful place to stay where everything is thoughtfully provided for you.

    Mark2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Karoline’s place was warm and cozy as described. It has a neat view of the ocean, and the property itself is surrounded by lush trees. The house was stocked with amazing coffee beans, which my husband really enjoyed having. Karoline’s dog, Hano, was a cool hang out in the mornings. The place is conveniently located to Kona and other beaches (about 15-20mins drive). Highly recommend it.

    Rasika2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Karolines house is very charming and well kept in every detail, and with a beautiful view over the garden and to the ocean. Peaceful area and close to a nice little village.

    Grete2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you are going to the big island, want a spectacular view, comfortable stay, and a wonderful host than we recommend this cozy magnificent spot overlooking Kona. We will never forget our trip and appreciated every second of our time here. Thank you Karoline 🌺

    Are you looking for a vacation where you pull into a small residential neighborhood, see how life is lived here at 900 ft elevation just outside of the Kona Village? Then you will love the Harbor View Hale that is nestled in a very tight knit community! It is a private 500 sq ft, 1 Bedroom apartment located in the lower part of our house only shared walls with a laundry room and a mostly unused guest bedroom to our part of the house and its private entrance. We have renovated this one Bedroom with all our love and our utmost priority was to provide you a seamless, worry free vacation with all the luxuries we could fit in. When we picked out materials, appliances, linens and furniture... the priority was always quality, cohesiveness as supposed to what was the cheapest. We are looking for guests who appreciate quality. Well stocked KITCHEN: - Mustard, Ketchup, Mayo, Olive Oil, Vinegar, Himalayan Salt, Black Pepper, Soy Sauce, Hot Sauce, different spices and dried herbs (from Cayenne to Garam Masala), Sugar, Coffee and Tea -Professional non-stick pots -any kitchen tool to cook the usual meal -Storage containers, bags -Cooling elements and bag for your pick nicks -Blender, Water kettle, rice cooker, coffee grinder, coffee machine, microwave, toaster oven, full size fridge with freezer -options to eat on the nice lanai or in the dining area inside
    From the Harbor View Hale it is only a 7 minute ride by CAR to Kona town center where you will be able to get groceries, dining, beach activities (SUP, Kayak, Parasail, glass bottom boat, snorkeling, swimming, etc), banks, gas stations, happy hours, pharmacy, parks, tours etc. The closest beach is in town ( Magic Sands, Kona Pier, Old Airport), however our favorite beach "KUA BAY" is just 15 minutes down the "Queen K" highway up north. However the west side of the Big Island is lined with spectacular beaches from 10 minutes away, to all the way up north where you will drive 50 minutes to an hour. The closest and very nice coffee farm is just 5 minutes up on Mamalahoa Hwy. "Hula Daddy" or "UCC Coffee" There is a great beginners snorkel spot in town called Kahalu'u. You can get your first snorkel experience here... if you are more advanced, you can go down south to 2 Step beach, where also in the early morning you may see some dolphins playing in the water. The Airport is 15 minutes away, just far enough that we don't hear or see it. :-) The Kona Marina, you can see from your lanai and is about 5-7 minutes down the hill. This is where many of the dolphin, manta ray, snorkel, deep see fishing trips depart from. To the right of the marina is an old Hawaiian holy ground, where you will often encounter sea turtles. The neighborhood is called Kealakehe or "Harbor View". There is an elementary school about 2 streets away, many families live in this area. We live our daily life here in this house as well, so daily common activities happen. :-)
  • Such a great location! We were only able to stay one night but loved the space. Comfortable bed, incredibly thoughtful amenities, and awesome view. The communication was superb. If we come back to the Big Island we will absolutely stay here again!

    Landry2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great Airbnb if you wanna see a different side to the hawaii life

    Kaylee2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay at the Harbor View Hale! While we could tell we were in for a treat from the informative listing, the actual experience surpassed our expectations from the moment we checked in. The Hale is very conveniently located just a few minutes drive from downtown Kailua-Kona. The space is immaculately kept and very comfortable with all the amenities and furnishings you could hope for and then some. Jaan and Saima were very clear and timely with all of their communications and left great information in the Hale about the Big Island and things to do in the local area and elsewhere. Great space, great location, great hosts. We wholeheartedly recommend.

    Nate2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • I wish there were more than 5 stars to give. The entire experience (from booking to checkout) was exceptional. The property was spotless with so many extras, it would take all day to list them. The location was great. The fresh papaya from their tree was incredible. The view was excellent. Can't recommend Jaan and Saima as hosts highly enough.

    Peggy2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Jaan and Saima's place was fantastic! You can tell that they care about creating a great experience for guests and have great pride in their rental. Lots of little extras and sweet touches made this place feel more like home, and we would absolutely rent from them again. Mahalo for a fantastic stay!

    Sarah2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Jaan and Saima’s place is wonderful! Clean, great location and amazing view. They are very thoughtful hosts and I cannot recommend their place enough if you are staying in the area.

    Charly2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment we booked this place we were treated like royalty. Excellent communication with lots of ideas on things to do and check in info. The description and amenities were accurate (actually the reality was way beyond our expectation). This is a one bedroom/kitchen/sitting area/shower/laundry/private balcony with a view flat in a quiet neighborhood. Everything was clean, parking was easy, free and safe. We were right up the hill from Costco. The place was equipped with everything you could need - most importantly a cooler, boogie board, beach chairs and umbrella, picnic dishes. The kitchen has necessary appliances like a good coffee maker/grinder, toaster oven, microwave, full size fridge and oven. Good knives and dishes for food prep if that's your thing and other supplies to make you feel at home. We were able to plug in our devices conveniently in every room. There's no AC but we didn't need it - there was a nice breeze plus fans in every room. We can't say enough about this place - we will be back. Thank you Jaan and Saima!

    Edith2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jaan and Saima have an awesome place, well appointed with many nice touches and amenities. The lanai is large and has a great view and the multiple fans were also helpful. Lots of beach gear to use as well. Above the hustle and bustle of Kona but just a few minutes drive to “the action”. Highly recommend this place to all travelers.

    Stay in this modern room in a shared guest wing of a stunning, open air house that is just 10 minutes to the beach and downtown. You will enter this unique home by a stone bridge over the koi pond before enjoying a beautiful pool, ocean views from the lanai, and laid back Hawaii living. A few things to note: -The room has 3 fans, but like most Hawaiian homes, no A/C. Summers, especially, are hot. Please keep this in mind when booking. -This is a room in a shared space, with 2 other guest rooms nearby. Living room and kitchen are shared. -Young kids live in the main part of the home.
    The Koi House is a home that echos relaxed way of life. It is an open air space with plants, a koi fish pond, natural and upcycled materials, and serene forest & ocean views. * The vibe is casual, communal and friendly. * I've worked hard to cultivate an eco-minded authentic space full of vintage textiles, natural accents, contemporary decor and a welcoming atmosphere that I enjoy sharing with guests and friends from all over the world.
    The neighborhood is quiet and suburban in style, while the house's setting at the edge of a nature reserve delivers rural privacy. Both the town and the beach are only 10 minutes away, and there are many fine snorkeling locations down south. A car is a necessity on the island and in this neighborhood.

  • The location was amazing. We woke to the sound of the waves every morning and watched the stars every night.

    Lilly2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Such a wonderful guest experience at Jerry and Alice's Kona Magic Sands place...we did not want our stay to end! Everything you need for a wonderful vacation is included - from a comfortable bed, all kitchen utensils and appliances, very nice linens and towels and anything you would need for a day at the beach. It is hard to describe the views and sounds of the ocean...there were days we just opened the lanai and spent most of the day enjoying the scenery (and serenity). And after a day of touring, it was so nice to come back and just enjoy the ocean, pool and making dinner in their well-equipped kitchen. We would actually look forward to returning each afternoon/evening to enjoy their place and the atmosphere. Jerry and Alice are such sincere and caring hosts... they truly want guests to enjoy their experience. There were tropical fresh flowers waiting for us as well as bananas from their own tree! We were sad when our stay ended and hope to be guests again! A wonderful, fabulous experience! Mahalo Jerry and Alice for sharing your paradise with us!

    Shannon2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing views and place. We saw whales, dolphins, fish, and turtles all from our condo! Jerry and Alice were some of the nicest people Ive ever met, very accomodating and definitely went above and beyond. We are definitely hoping to come back and stay here again.

    Kelsey2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • It was very relaxing to hear the constant splashing of the waves, which sent us to sleep immediately! The Magic Sands restaurant was excellent, convenient and fun. Great to have an allocated parking space.

  • Jerry & Alice are the kind of hosts that you remember for years, their kindness and warm communication, they feel like friends rather than hosts. We will never forget the roar of the waves, the breath taking sunsets and the whales and dolphins daily transiting out front. 🐳🌊 🌅

    Darrell2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Jerry and Alice's condo. The views were magnificent - a perfect place to take in an ocean sunset. Was nice to be able to lie in bed and hear the sound of the waves. The location was great too, right next to a nice beach and an easy drive to any other Kona destination. Jerry and Alice were great hosts and provided all the info we needed for our trip along with plenty of suggestions for places to eat and things to do. We would love to stay at their place again.

    David2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jerry and Alice are wonderful hosts and their condo is amazing. I would definitely come back here.

    Vinit2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Right next to Magic Sands Beach. Perfect location. We loved hearing the waves lap up on the shore each night. Perfect sea breeze blows into the apartment each day. Jerry and Alice were kind and easy to interact with. Highly recommend!

Fantastic ocean views, quiet and peaceful, yet less than 10 minutes from the center of town and the beach, and 20 minutes to the Kona airport (KOA). "Ohana" means family in the Hawaiian language.

Our Ohana suite is a secure, private, attached studio apartment sharing one wall, with full bath, kitchenette with fridge and everything needed for food preparation , and covered lanai (balcony) with uninterrupted ocean views. It has a private entrance, with a shared yard featuring a fairy garden, playhouse, and swings.

Just a 10-minute drive from downtown or the beach, this elevation experiences pleasant temperatures all year long. Wake up to the chorus of the birds and a stunning ocean view.
  • What a great place! My husband and I stayed for 5 nights during our vacation and we couldn’t have been happier. The location in the Kona area was convenient, and the amenities within the apartment were perfect. It’s super cute, and they’ve thoughtfully made sure it includes everything you need, even things like beach towels, a small portable cooler for day trips, umbrellas, etc. The front deck has such a lovely view and the backyard was a nice surprise. We didn’t get to meet them but communication was great over Airbnb messages. I was a hit worried about the driveway and it is pretty steep, but our SUV rental handled it just fine if we drove carefully.

    Stephanie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This airbnb is very cute, sparkling clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, yet quiet and off the beaten path. We appreciated the use of beach gear, including towels, snorkeling gear, chairs, boogie boards, an umbrella and even a cooler with an ice pack. Chris was very attentive to any questions and usually got back to us within 10 minutes of posing a question.

    Elaine2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Spotless and charming place with a great view.

    Rachel2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great hosts & great place!

    Sally2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was perfect! Chris made sure we had the pack n play and high chair for our 20 month old. The play area in the back was perfect for him! He napped and slept great with the black out curtains (so did we). All the extras were great too: the towels for the beach, the snorkel gear, & beach gear. I really enjoyed sitting out on the patio watching the ocean. We have already recommended this place to our friends!

    Whitney2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view. Great communication from host. Excellent stay.

    Brian2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful place to stay. Me and my aunt hung out over night because our main stay was in Hilo. We booked on Airbnb and checked in 45 minutes later. The view is spectacular day and night. I really enjoyed watching the moon hang over the ocean at night! The room is perfect! Literally!!!

  • Melinda is such a nice lady. She allowed us to change the reservation so we can flight back home early due to the outbreak of COVID-19. She responded quickly when messaged her. My son loved the board games and Wii games in the live room too. Location is a bit hard to find as the address shared by two buildings with A and B difference and google map is not accurate, so we had to ask around to find it. but the view is great and the avocado fell from tree is huge. :-) Would love to stay longer if possible. Thanks to host us.

    Jenny2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect place for us. Good location for all trips, very good facilities, everything was there. The road to the house is a bit steep with a big car. We felt very comfortable. A great veranda with a wonderful view. Mahalo

    Katrin2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice location. Far from the big tourist spots, without being too far either. The location is great, in nature. Melinda was welcoming and kind. Overall the experience is good. The cleaning is done, but the walls are dirty and the couches dusty and with cat hair. 2 cats live in the house downstairs; but goes upstairs (part which is rented airbnb) and he is able to open the door. I think some visitors let him in. My allergies manifested quite a bit. But hey, I would come back to this place without asking myself the question; we liked a lot. :) Really cheap for what it is!

    Gabrielle2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Breathtaking beautiful view of the valley and ocean from the wraparound porch. Kitchen has everything needed for fixing a quick meal. The sink, as mentioned previously, has been well used but functional. 2 nice bedrooms with storage. Many amenities to bath area. Owner lives downstairs and will be readily accessible if needed. Enjoyed our stay

    Diane2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious place set up in the mountains. Quiet at night with just some nature sounds. Very peaceful.

    Josh2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay here. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. The lanai was a wonderful place for morning tea or sunset relaxing. The beds were very comfortable. It was a great base for jumping off into our adventures.

    Denise2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Really beautiful view! Spacious home. We loved having access to a full kitchen and made use of the stove, rice cooker, and coffee maker. Not as much wiildlife ambiance as other places on the island, but at night we did hear the occasional coqui or falling avocado. Driveway is a little tricky to get out of (on a steep hill, in the bend of a winding road). Would stay here again!

    Helen2019-11-28T00:00:00Z

  • Stunning craftsmanship and breathtaking views. We could watch the sunset right from our bed and see the ocean in the distance. Magical. Wildlife is abundant and you can hear them so much so at night. Jeff has done a beautiful job at making this space nothing short of magic.

    Jah Victoria2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! The best airbnb I've ever seen! Thank you so much for creating such an awesome retreat/ escape! Loved using the beach supplies...snorkeling at 2 step and captain cooks! The fruit was exotic and amazing! And the treehouse is magical! Beyond description.

    Julia2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views from bed! The whole place is so cutely decorated and Jeff's hospitality was spectacular. Aside from the bedroom and bathroom the common spaces are outside. it was not dirty place by any means but as most out side places leafs fall and wind can blow dust. would not recommend if camping is not your thing but we loved the location and the stay!

    Alexandria2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The Treehouse was more than we expected. Feeling the air blow through the entire area was very surreal coming from a cold climate. The birds singing was a great start to the day followed by fresh eggs from the chicken coop for breakfast. The bed is very comfortable and the view from it was to die for. You won’t be disappointed. Mahalo Jeff, Lisa and Jeff British Columbia, Canada

    Jeff2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse is absolutely magical! The view from bed is straight out of a magazine, with the outdoor kitchen, luxurious bathroom, and sitting area all delivering fantastic attention to detail. After a visit to the little farm on site to fetch fresh eggs and say hi to the pigs, you'll be wondering why you don't live there yourself! Thanks for such a great stay!

    Sean2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse is a perfect place to stay in Kona. It’s close to everything, the amenities are great, and you won’t find a more fun, interesting airbnb on the island. Jeff was welcoming, super easy to communicate with, and seems to be constantly improving the place. A+ would sleep again

    Matt2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed here for our 1 year anniversary and it was unbelievable! The pictures look incredible of the tree house but in person it will truly take your breath away! Jeff was kind enough to bring us some fresh bananas and tangerines from the garden. Amazing trip!

    McKenzie2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, with a stunning view. Perfect for a couple's trip. Close to the shopping center but stock your stuff beforehand and never leave the place. We were here for honeymoon and had a wonderful time!

    Just a few blocks from the ocean and beach parks. Separate apartment on the lower level of our personal home. Discounts for stays of longer than 6 nights, and monthly discounts. The price shown in the reservation request should reflect the discount when applicable. New reservations made after 12/22/19 for 2020- Hawaii tax included in the final Airbnb charge. Cleaning fee is waived if left clean.
    This conveniently located, clean, peaceful self-catering apartment is on the lower level of our house. It is just a few blocks from world class snorkeling, swimming, surfing and boogie boarding in the heart of the White Sands Beach area off of Ali`i Drive. The ground floor separate apartment with private entrance and designated off-street parking consists of a bedroom with comfortable queen sized bed, living area with full and twin size (child size) futon, full eat in kitchen, spacious bathroom (shower but no tub) tropical decor and an outdoor deck for relaxing. There are ceiling fans in each room, but no AC. We find it comfortable most of the year, but you may not be use to tropical temperatures and humidity. Please consider this when selecting a place to stay. We are located on a quiet cul-de-sac, but there is some road noise from Alii Dr and the sound of the waves during high surf. We live upstairs and are usually up around 6am. We do our best to minimize any noise, but you may hear plumbing sounds, footsteps and normal household activities. If you are a late or light sleeper, our home may not be the best fit for you. We love the Big Island and look forward to sharing our knowledge with you. Amenities provided include: • Free high speed internet via wi-fi • Basic Cable TV • Keyless Lock • Full Kitchen – Fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, rice cooker • Pots & Pans • Cooking utensils • Dishes and cutlery • All linens provided • Gas BBQ Grill • Beach Chairs for 2 • Boogie Boards for 2 • Snorkel Gear for 2. Shared Washer/Dryer on request. If you have a 5th in your party, ask about our extra person fee. No Smoking Please- $200 Security/Cleaning deposit. This will be refunded if you leave the apartment clean and as you found it. For bookings made before 12/22/19 there is an additional charge of 14.962% for Hawaii Transient Accommodation Tax/GE (as noted in the listing at the time you booked) collected at arrival via cash or check USD or we can arrange payment prior to your arrival via the resolution center. For new bookings made after 12/22/19, the Hawaii GET and TAT tax are included in the final invoice.
    Located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood with easy access to local beaches and sightseeing. Walking distance to several beach parks and snorkel areas. 1.5 miles to Keauhou Shopping Center with a grocery store, drug store, restaurants, movie theater and shopping. Planning your trip- We recommend 7 to 10 days to experience most of the highlights of the Big Island. The Kona side has much to offer in the way of beaches, water sports, golfing and dining. It is about a 2-3 hour drive to the volcano area or Hilo and 1 hour drive up to the northern part of the island. While you can see all the areas from one location, we think splitting your stay between the east and west sides offers the best arrangement.
  • Spacious and great location. Will definitely be looking to stay here again the next time we visit Kona!

    Melissa2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very comfortable, the apartment was bigger than we expected and you could easily stay with two more persons. It’s nice and quiet, everything was very clean. A little damage was fixed right away by the owner. We didn’t want to leave and looking forward to come back some time :) Liz and Robert are great hosts. Mahalo :)

    Monika2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was completely wonderful. The location is perfection and the suggestions of what to do were spot on! We enjoyed every second and are so happy we got to stay here. Way beyond our expectations.... thank you so much.

    Lorraine2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great quiet home one block up from Alii drive, the main strip in Kona. Walking distance to the beach or pack up and drive. Seems to be an active spot for joggers. Beautiful clear water. We especially loved two restaurants near by (a good walk but doable) The Rock and Hugo's. It's the same owners, restaurants side by side but different menus and price. Super super great location for a sun set and our favorite MaiTai. You need reservations for the Rock. You can feel the influx of travellers when a cruise ship shows up but being there for a couple of days you can avoid the main strip. For some great snorkelling visit Two Step park.

    Lucio2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place in a great location to explore the Kona side of the island. It is in a quiet neighborhood where the only noises are that of nature. Beautiful flowers and back gardens. Bed and futon were comfortable. Lots of amenities to enjoy your day at the beach and close to restaurants or excursions. Thanks Liz and Robert for everything!

    Melissa2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent outdoor space at property. Worth noting that swimming on the nearby coast could require foot ware because of rocks. Availability of snorkel equipment etc and body boards was welcome and overall our stay was a very relaxing experience.

    Richard2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great location close to beaches, local shopping center and downtown restaurant row. Quiet location, bird songs await you in the morning. Host were available when needed but provided privacy. Definitely would stay here again!

    Kailua Bay Resort is right downtown Kona. The Ocean is visible from the lanai and most everything is within a mile of the flat. The resort also has its own hot tub, pool and barbecue area. The king kamehameha beach is only a few minutes walk from the house where paddle boards, jet skis and booze cruises await.
    Surfboards, snorkel gear, smart TV (netflix/hulu), beach gear, kitchen with all the basics, laundry machine, cooler and tunes at your disposal.
    I live in a quiet condo in the middle of everything. Beautiful lanai and a great place to chill and talk story.
  • Great little condo for a stay in Kona! Has all of the essentials, including a washer and dryer, and it has a nice balcony as well. Very walkable to the shore and other areas around town.

    Nathaniel2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great host, super responsive and gave us local spots to explore that we would never have found on our own.

    Candace2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome little condo in the heart of Kona perfect for small family's or couples traveling together

    Reed2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Nice apartment in a great location! We were able to walk to a places for food, the touristy downtown area, and a couple beaches! The apartment itself was very versatile, we actually ended up staying on the Murphy bed in the living room because we loved the openness and the patio, although the bedroom was also lovely!

    Olivia2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great place if you are on the go. Has everything that you need.

    Keith2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

    We are a nicely appointed condo in the heart of Old Kona Town. We are across from the Hulie'e Palace and only a couple of hundred feet from the ocean. There are restaurants, galleries, Kona coffee houses and exotic shopping right out our doors. Tax #: W70176163-01 Price includes state taxes.
    This beautiful condo was just fully and expertly remodeled and furnished. It is new inside with sophisticated Polynesian accents. We are in the heart of downtown Kona on the island of Hawaii or "The Big Island". We overlook the oldest church in Hawaii, Mokuaikaua Church, and the Hulihee Royal Palace in downtown Kona. We are steps away from the pier, restaurants and special activities. This is the heart of the old village of Kona, literally in the back yard of the Hulihee Palace. We have one bedroom one bath with large lanai and a new kitchen, fully stocked with all the necessary dishes. Although we are in the core and center of the town, we are quiet because of the church as our closest neighbor. We are on the quiet side of our building orientated toward the church grounds. We have covered and secured parking in a garage and elevators from the parking area. Cable, high-speed internet and a new washer/dryer is included. This is truly a wonderful property unique because of its setting. Our building includes a wonderful pool and barbecue decks which overlook the busy Ali'i Drive and the Pacific Ocean. Step out of the parking garage and you are in the middle of our restaurant and shopping area. Prices include Hawaii tax of 13.42%! This is important when comparing prices because many people add it onto the posted price. WE ARE NON-SMOKING!
    I just love living in downtown Kona. We are on the quiet end of the "strip" here along the oceanfront at Kailua Bay. It is quiet in our neighborhood soon after dark. Just a few blocks down along the waterfront are our nightclubs and late-night restaurants with daily live music. It really is a special place, very calm with many shopping, dining and night club options.
  • This unit has everything. Clean and well looked after. It’s in the heart of downtown Kona. Easy to walk the street for local shopping and restaurants. Ed went out of his way to get us special beach chairs that we asked for. We would come back to this unit.

    Caroline2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The access was simple, Edward always responded to texts and questions fast, and the area is right by the beach and a bunch of shops! Such a cool area with lots to do, right on the ocean. Will definitely be coming back!

    Gabrielle2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This unit is great...an ideal price in an ideal location. It was convenient to get to places, a wonderful unit layout, and an important aspect of our two weeks on the Big Island.

    Jill2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Edward was such a great host for us! We only stayed with him one night. Our flight got in late, but he was still responsive when we messaged him. He was even willing to work with us on our check out time so we could enjoy our day in Kona without having to lug our bags around with us. The place was stylishly decorated, comfortable, impeccably clean and easy to access. Thank you Edward for a wonderful stay!

    Diana2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This clean unit is in a quiet location that it very close to the waterfront as well as many shops and stores. It was comfortably furnished inside as well as on the lanai. Edward has stocked his place with many thoughtful items and was quick to respond to our questions. The underground garage parking was very convenient. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • Great place and great host. After I realized that I had booked the wrong night he set me up with another of his properties at a discounted rate.

    John2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place has a great location right next to great restaurants and shopping yet quiet.

    Stephanie2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Located very close to everything downtown. Clean, well furnished and comfortable. You can't go wrong staying here while in Kona.

    Centrally located between South Kohala's beaches, and the dining and entertainment scene of Kailua-Kona, the Kaloko Coffee Cottage is at a cool elevation making naps after morning/day adventures a...well a dream! Far from any roads, the dominant sounds are the many birds who make their homes in the surrounding trees. This is a thoughtfully furnished home with an open layout, on a Kona coffee farm, just bring your food and clothes for which ever adventure you intend; leave the accommodations and ambiance to us and Hawaii.
    Private 1 bedroom 1 bathroom Cottage with a full kitchen (fully equipped) and laundry. The bedroom and lanai have fabulous ocean views. There is a brand new queen bed and also a new queen memory foam pull out couch. There is fast WiFi and a comfortable work space. The tv has a fire stick for prime movies and shows. The house is accessed by its own gated driveway at the end of a quiet road. (If you care for a stroll it is an Excellent road for it!) The lanai is a great place to sit and enjoy a morning cup of coffee while watching the boats go out from the harbor. It is on a beautiful fenced property with coffee, citrus, and avocado trees.
    The cottage is set at the end of a quiet one lane road on the hillside of Mount Hualalai, at a scenic elevation of 1600 feet. There are many beautiful hikes nearby such as the Jurassic Trail and Kaloko Cloud Forest Trail.
  • Lovely place. Great location, up in the hills (need a car). Very comfortable cottage - perfect size for 2, clean, plenty of supplies and comfy bed. Highly recommended.

    Hannah2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is perfect in every way. The location is close to town and beaches yet far enough removed to be private and quiet. I would absolutely recommend it and would stay here again.

    Jason2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • What an awesome 3 days we had here! Private, quiet, cool and felt so nice! An extremely well stocked vacation rental with a spectacular view of the ocean and sunset. Comfy bed and really comfy couch. You won’t be sorry if you stay here, such a welcome change from the heat & crowds of Kailua Kona. So beautiful!

    Dawn2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, spacious cottage with perfect privacy and stunning sunsets. Always a little breeze so no need for A/C. A plus are the mosquite-netted windows, although we did not encounter a single one! While there are further houses nearby, the cottage itself is really private and kind of remote. We would stay in the cottage again.

    Clemens2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Super place and great location. Very tropical setting

    Kevin2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was immaculate and spotless. The location was very private and lush. I would definitely stay there again

    Ed2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Really well appointed cosy cottage for a couple ... we stayed for a week. Great base of operations with nice views of the sea. Quiet location yet very handy if travelling north and east. Hosts very professional, great communicators. Highly recommended.

    Norrelle2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! This place is absolutely awesome. Private, spotless, homey, far enough away to be private, yet close enough to have a great time. Plenty of amenities and hot water and a bathtub. My personal favorite. We opened every window and basked in the ocean breeze. You can see the ocean from the porch and bedroom window. It’s got a full kitchen. Stop at Safeway and get what you need first. It’s only about 10 minutes away. We had a teeny tiny issue, that I’m reluctant to even mention, and the only reason I am is to let you know Maura handled it right away. If we come back to Hawai’i, this is where we will stay! Mahalo

    Kailua-Kona, HI, United States

    Welcome to the Kaloko Farm Studio -- where you will be completely surrounded by nature, gorgeous sunsets and the beauty of Hawaii! This secluded and gated farm is situated at 1,700 ft elevation with an unobstructed 180 degree view of the Kona coastline and cool temperatures! The main house & studio are surrounded by a wide variety of tropical flowers and an infinity lawn. This newly remodeled studio is perfect for travelers: private entrance, garage parking, full bathroom & kitchenette.
    For this slice of paradise, we wanted to embrace an idea of simple living while finding solitude in native plants and fauna. The Studio is a spacious 300 square foot studio with its' own private entrance and garage. It's the perfect mountain top hideaway with ocean view - The newly renovated bungalow can comfortably accommodate a single traveler, or two-people traveling together. It's a cozy retreat and includes all the amenities one might need during their stay. This quaint vacation nook also features a stylish kitchenette with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Tucked away, is a small toaster oven, mini-fridge, coffee maker, electric hot plate, pots, pans, basic seasonings, complimentary coffee and condiments. Inside the studio you’ll find a comfortable memory foamed queen size bed, tiled hardwood floors and an abundance of windows which opens up to green space and clear skies. The studio also features a spacious vanity sink and shower area. In addition, there's a ceiling fan with plenty of windows for fresh air. We also have a hairdryer and all the basic personal effects in case you forgot something. You'll also have access to the washer/dryer in the laundry area. The bountiful farm also has over 100 different varieties of fruit trees and when available, our guests will also have access to fresh tropical fruit (depending on whats in season). Collect and enjoy fresh eggs straight from our chicken coop everyday, with our wooden egg crate located in the Ohana. Help yourself! If you're feeling adventurous, we have complimentary snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach umbrellas, bamboo mats, and beach towels. We are just a short 15 minute drive to beautiful Kua Bay, the famous Magic Sands beach, Downtown Kona and just 10 minutes from the airport and Costco! Marley is our sweet loving black lab. He is a big dog but very gentle and mellow. He will not jump up on you or lick you. But he will walk out to greet you when you arrive. He knows nothing but love! **Nightly rate includes tax** **We follow all Hawaiian Rules & Regulations pertaining to Transient Accommodations (State Required Information) TA#-037281894401 **
    You will love this neighborhood! The top two reasons are privacy and the cool temperatures. Our subdivision is divided up into 3 acre lots, which means the next neighbor's house is about 200 yards away. The Kaloko area is one of Kona's most desirable places to live and visit. We are 15 minutes from downtown Kona and shops, 10 minutes from the airport, 7 minutes to Costco, and within 15 minutes to several beautiful beaches. This is the most ideal location when staying in the Kona area.
  • Great place to honeymoon. Jeff even brought us fresh fruit. Marley is also awesome.

    Adam2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • The location of Jeff’s place was perfect for my trip. I enjoyed the cool nights and lovely view. The bed is quite comfortable and being a tall person I really appreciated the high shower head height. The space is clean, parking in a covered garage was a plus, and being greeted by Marley, their dog, in the mornings for belly rubs was sweet. I did not have need to interact with Jeff much but he was always around so I knew if I needed anything I could easily reach him. As a solo traveler I felt safe at Jeff’s place.

    Nicole2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful stay for the price. Every detail was taken care of, and it is clean as can be! Jeff was a perfect host who was very responsive and attentive during our stay! The property is lovely and we slept very well. It’s super nice to stay out of town for a couple reasons: 1. The crowds and extreme congestion don’t exist at Jeff’s place. 2. The cooler temperatures make for very comfortable sleeping. No complaints 👍🏼

    Laurie Medeiros2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff is very kind and generous. The fruits available are seasonal. We were fortunate to have fresh picked papayas, avocados, guavas, dragonfruit, and bananas. As well as fresh eggs from the chickens. We loved his dog Marley and hugged him everyday. The location had an incredible view and wonderful feel. We will definitely return.

    Juancarlos2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. No improvements necessary.

    Sarah2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff’s place was great and he was an awesome host. He shared some “praying hands” bananas and had ample beach supplies on hand. The place is just hit enough for 2 people for a few nights as we explored Kona and the surroundings. We’d definitely stay here again.

    Adam2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff's place was amazing. The view from the house is beautiful and Jeff allowed us to walk basically all around the property. He had chickens and pigs on the property, as well as a cute lab named Marley! We had the best time playing with Marley when we were around. The studio itself was very clean and well kept. Perfect amount of space for two of us and in a great location. The main city/beach area was only 15 minutes or so away, which made it easy for us to come back during the day if we wanted to. Overall, great place to stay.

    Jocelyn2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely small farm in a good residential area above Kona, but still convenient to the town and beaches. Jeff is an attentive host and his enthusiasm to share his love for his farm is a great bonus. This is what makes the BnB stays so much more enjoyable than a homogenous hotel experience.

  • Clean with a great view. Microwave and hot plate to cook with. No stove or oven.

    Silas2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful Airbnb host. Location was a little difficult to find because of Google maps, but overall a great place to stay. Thankful for the neighbor who helped find the place in the dark.

    Jessica2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The appartement is great and equipped with everything needed and the view is one of the best! Kathy Jo is really nice and helpful with anything asked. I would definately book again, thanks!

    Jana2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The view is spectacular and the sunsets are top notch. Exceptional quiet location perfect to relax and just overlook the ocean. The place is perfect for a couple and the amenities are great. The location was perfect for everything we needed. Lovely experience. Host is very responsive and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

    Jennifer2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This accommodation is very comfortable and has an amazing view of the sea and setting sun. The hosts were very helpful with quick responses to any questions. Highly recommended.

    Phil2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent location to use as a base as the island of Hawai i is explored. The view from the hillside over the ocean towards the west as the Sun goes down is indescribable. Make sure your memory card has lots of space on it when you see the radiant colors and changing scenes. A grocery store is just minutes away for purchasing any/all the commodities you'd want to have and eat. A Costco is available for larger purchases and it has the least expensive gas on the island. This location is well worth the cost and the sunsets will be on our flash drive for ages.

    Lovely neighborhood, 2.3 miles up Hualalai from the Kona airport (KOA). Our neighborhood semi-remote, but close to everything. We are 7 min. from the airport, but we hear no noise, as it is not legal to fly over land on the Big Island (except to land and take off). No street lights to obscure your view of the stars. We are 10 min. from Costco, 12-15 min. from town and shopping, 20-45 min. from fantastic beaches. Our area is perfect for day trips in all directions! Then you come home to a peaceful setting at a comfortable elevation. The neighborhood has roosters, dogs, wild turkeys, and birds that sing loudly in the morning. If you are sensitive to noise, you might want to use the soft earplugs that we provide. (Sorry, no refunds for "noise".) We live in the tropics. There are cute geckos that may eat yogurt and papaya from your softly outstretched finger. Since it's the tropics we also bugs, ants, spiders, centipedes, etc. We have Terminex spray regularly around the perimeter and under the sinks, so pests rarely enter your space. However, much we clean it is impossible for us to guarantee a "pest-free" environment. Sorry, we cannot provide refunds if you are uncomfortable with these "pests". Dogs may bark or be off leash. Walking is best if you go down 1/2 block and left onto Nana, (becomes Holoholo) a street that goes for about 20 min. before you need to turn around.
  • Carly's place is clean, quiet and the king size bed is very comfortable. Caryl and John are extremely friendly and helpful. They provide a nice starter kit of coffee, cereal, water, and coffee creamer when you arrive. If you choose to buy some groceries in town, everything you need for simple meal prep and/or a day at the beach is there. The home has nice ocean breezes and is a short 10 minute drive to downtown Kona. We highly recommend Carly's place.

    Susan2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely place to stay! I highly recommend. Beautiful space, great location close to the airport and beaches, gracious hosts and EVERYTHING you could possibly need.

    Catheryne2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The host will send you a lot of travel information by email before coming to the hostel :) We were rest and we didn't see it because it was a lot. The location is higher than I expected, and my ears were blocked several times, but I got used to it. It took quite a while to get into the house because I didn't understand whether the house was on the first floor or the second floor. At first, the host came and taught me where to find the houseware or anything in detail. There are all kinds of sauces and appliances. I didn't have rubber gloves, so I bought them and used them. I don't have tongs. What was nice is that you can use a washing machine and a dryer. It was nice to be able to use it immediately after going to the water. Only 10 minutes to the city center. It was good to be able to relax while staying ~ Thank you so much for giving us great place!

    Minhye2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is AMAZING! You don’t need to bring anything but your clothes. Caryl has everything for you. I felt like I was visiting a family member’s house. It was like I was right at home. The place looks exactly like the pictures. All the things listed on Airbnb is what’s included. It’s a nice quiet neighborhood.

    Annika2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Caryl leaves no stone unturned when it comes to thoughtfulness of equipping her space for travelers that prefer to feel as at home as possible. From preparing your own meals, beach day chairs, towels, snorkels, fins, boards, coolers, right down to your toiletry items, Caryl has you covered. Caryl is incredibly welcoming and informative, she provides an abundance of tips and suggestions for places to eat, shop and sightsee. Our room had everything we needed, even a wonderfully cozy bed with crisp white sheets. This rental is perfect for those looking to explore the off the beaten path beaches that the Kona side has to offer. A nice neighborhood, with a great view of sunset. Would recommend as a good home base for exploring up and down the Kona coast. The only notable item that was minimally less than ideal, was that you should expect to be awoken by roosters singing their song every morning, as there appear to be a few throughout the neighborhood. Caryl does provide earplugs if needed, and if you close the main slider, it really does not cause a disturbance at all. No earplugs were needed by myself or my partner during our stay

    Michelle2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying with Caryl on our trip to Kona! She had so many amenities and nice touches to her place that made the place really special. We would recommend staying with Caryl to anyone!

    Ella2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great. The pictures don’t do the justice. We’ve stayed at a lower level of the house, with one large room with a bed in it, TV, table and two full wall windows/doors. Had our own bathroom with a shower and a kitchen with all appliances. The only thing that’s missing is a stove, but there is a counter grill/stove and lots of pans and girdles. This place has it all. The garden is beautiful and we’ve enjoyed the morning time outside. Caryl was so wonderful and attentive, and provided a very thorough list of places to see and things to do. She also provided us with the beach gear (towels, chairs, umbrella, body boards and such) and even snacks and water. We loved it and hope to come back.

    Fiya2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Caryl is a wonderful host. Her place is perfectly clean, comfy and cosy. She gave us so many tips and advices that we would have need more time to see everything !!! Perfect host and perfect place. Highly recommended !!!!

    Amy2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great relaxing place. Beautiful sunsets on the front porch. Nice neighbourhood to go for regular jogs up and down the hills. Only thing they could use is some Tommy Bahama chairs and you’re all set!

    Rob & Jodi-Rae2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah and James' place was really cozy and nice. I had really great time in Hawaii because of the atmosphere, beach, fresh air, food and THIS PLACE. Their house was incredible, 'cause you can see beautiful beach and sunset when you're having dinner. And bathroom and bedroom were perfect. Also, Sarah and James sent us welcoming wine and they answered our tricky questions just in a second. :D Thank you for your hosting! See you!

    Yuna2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best AirBnB I've ever stayed in. It is sparkling clean, very spacious and offers everything you need - from kitchen amenities to beach towels. Sarah and James were very responsive and welcoming. I wish we could have stayed longer!!!

    This studio has just been remodeled in Oct 2018 and it still has the nice, new smell inside. This condo is fully equipped to make you feel right at home. It features a brand new full kitchen with dishwasher for your convenience and full size (5 burner) stove in case you want to cook some good food. All the appliances are stainless steel and brand new. Bedroom, dining area and living area also feature new furniture. This condo does not have AC installed, but it features 2 large ceiling fans and a large tower fan. If you open the sliding glass doors by the ocean and the screened in front door it keeps the place cooler. Both the Queen size bed and the Queen size sofa bed have very comfortable and brand new memory foam mattresses. The headboard in bedroom features USB ports on both sides so you can easily recharge your electronic devices. The 43" flat screen TV comes with Spectrum Cable service featuring a bunch of HD channels and also a Chromecast device that will allow you to cast anything from your phone or computer (Netflix, Hulu, SlingTV, etc...) Lightning fast wifi internet connection at 200 Mbps All new beach gear for your use include: boogie boards, snorkel gear with fins, beach chairs and towels, umbrella and beach cooler with ice packs. It is conveniently located on the ground floor for easy access which is great since the building does not have an elevator. Amenities include an oceanfront swimming pool, 2 BBQ grills and a patio dining area also in front of the ocean. A free private parking spot is available just a few steps from the front door and a coin-op laundry room..
    This is one of the best neighborhoods you can stay at in Kona. It's one of the few places with a white sandy beach at walking distance. It is a great central location far enough from town to not feel crowded but close enough to shops and restaurants. A great place for snorkeling is a little more than 1 mile away at Kahalu'u Beach Park. Also just 2 miles away you can find Keauhou Shopping Center with its grocery store and restaurants.
  • Clean, crisp, fresh, convenient and comfortable, this spacious studio was our retreat for 16 glorious days. "Tropical Beauty" is well appointed with an uncluttered beachy feel ... exactly as pictured. All previous reviews are spot on ... 5-star! Check in was a snap (even at 1:30 am) and communication with Luc and Johanna was frequent and attentive. We especially enjoyed the coffee station, USB ports in the headboard, large night tables with good reading lamps, abundant hot water with solid water pressure, quality towels and linens and the very handy drying rack. Fans and ocean breezes kept us cool and comfortable each day. Everything was provided to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. Mahalo, Luc and Johanna for your care and attention. We truly hope to return next year. Debbie & Ken Vancouver Island, BC

  • Great place to stay! Nice touch having the beach equipment. Tucked in between a beach and a park. Nice to have a restaurant on site. Will be back!

    Chris2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend staying here. It’s an amazing location. Beautiful beach. Great view. Parking is super easy. Restaurant on site. Clean, really nice apartment. Fall asleep listening to the waves. Everything as advertised.

    Dawn2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • I love this place! Great location, and has everything you will need. It was a ole sent surprise to have boogie boards available to us. Would stay here again!

    Azure2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Luca and Johanna's place is exactly as they present it. It was sparkling clean, up-to-date and stylish and has everything you need for a great stay. The view is fantastic. Even better is the sound of the waves through the night, the were very dramatic and a highlight. Communication with Luca and Johanna was perfect. They were responsive to every query and need during our stay, along with great follow-up. They are the model hosts.

    Bruce2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent choice for a couple! We looked at many beautiful condos but many were huge, multi-room offerings. This was the perfect size at a reasonable price. The place was beautiful, with a large window that opened up to the ocean. Magic sands beach is right next door - but you do need to rent a car. We weren't impressed with the on-site restaurant. But we enjoyed the swimming pool and the on-site management was very friendly. The room had everything you would need in way of kitchen and beach accessories. There was even a Lonely Planet guide book! We hope to visit again next year and this would be our first choice!

    Jennifer2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • I am grateful and pleased to stay in such relaxing accommodations. Everything was there for me. Even beach equipment; chairs, cooler, umbrella towels 😊

    Scott2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location - right next to a white sand beach. And they have a closet with everything that you need to chillax: beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogie boards, etc. We had a great time!

    Take an Isolation Getaway Upcountry living at its finest. Charming 1 bedroom NON-SMOKING ohana at 1800 Ft elevation for cool evenings, crisp mornings, sweeping ocean views and unforgettable sunsets. Centrally located, only 12 minutes from Kona Airport and Kailua Village/Ali'i Drive, 25 minutes to Waikoloa, 40 minutes to Waimea, 90 minutes to Hilo.
    Includes private kitchenette with full size refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, cooktop, convection oven, pans, plates & utensils. Coffee and tea included. The cottage has its own designated parking space and we use keyless entry. The code and instructions will be sent via Airbnb email (check in key) the morning of your arrival. ***PLEASE NOTE: While there are no stairs leading into the apartment, there are stairs going into the bathroom. If mobility is an issue, you will not be able to access the restroom.*** ***PLEASE NOTE *** we are a non-smoking property and ask that you respect that. ***PLEASE NOTE***we live gracefully and peacefully in nature as our home is on the edge of a rainforest. There is much in nature we cannot control for, such as feral chickens. Roosters can crow at the oddest hour and we have learned to live with and love their population. We suggest using either the provided fans or sound machine for soft white noise to help block them out. We have had great success with that. We ask that you come here with the notion of absorbing a rich culture on an amazing island with an open mind and heart. Mahalo
    Our neighborhood is a small semi-rural area at the north edge of Kailua-Kona and on the border of the Hualalai Rainforest with lush tropical plants, birds such as Chinese pheasant, turkeys, wild finches, dove and of course , FERAL CHICKENS! (Friendly but hang around a bit too much)
  • We can only recommend the apartment for people who want to vacation on Big Island.

    Ruben2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay and Jim was the Best host! This was our 9th stay on Big Island, we were married there in 2012 . We usually stay at the Hilton Waikoloa but will return here from now on. The elevation made for nice cool evenings, nights and early mornings. View of the beautiful trees and ocean made us feel immersed in the spirit of Aloha and the Hawaiian culture. Mahalo Jim!!!! See you next year!!

    Debi2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • I had a fantastic night at in this snug little cottage. It was such a delightful place to stay and felt much larger than it was thanks to the thoughtful layout choices and decor. The location is super convenient to Kona and I enjoyed seeing the sunset down the mountain. The value is unbeatable. I would love to stay again. Mahalo!

    Meg2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute cottage! Has everything you need for a great trip. The kitchen is great for doing some cooking, and the porch has a table where you can sit out and eat overlooking the ocean. There's also beach supplies and plenty of towels. Can't go wrong here, wish I never had to leave!

    Aleyna2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

    Yvonne2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Nice location 15 minutes from the airport, shops, restaurants. Very nice view of nature and the ocean. You have to agree to be woken up by roosters very early in the morning. It still has its charm for nature lovers. There is no air conditioning, but no need in January and there are silent ceiling fans. Interesting equipment for the kitchenette. Plenty of towels provided and great snorkeling equipment. A nice, quiet place to stay!

  • The Plumeria cottage is in a great location! About 5 minutes from downtown Kona and close everything (Beach, Safeway, downtown, Walmart) . Teddy and David left a guide book with extremely useful tips which was super helpful, it covered pretty much any questions you might have. The cottage was spotless , and overall beautiful!

    Tanya2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here in February 2020, to sum it up in one word is: incredible. I was surprised at all the little touches which tied everything together. It's located between the highway and Ali'i Drive. The neighborhood feel makes it quiet and it's maybe a 10 minute ride share down to all the action on Ali'i Drive. Plumeria Cottage has so many amenities! Enjoy your stay! It's so worth every penny and moment!

    James2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Teddy and David were very gracious hosts. Super helpful and available for any questions we had about the space, or about the area in general! Next time I am back on Big Island I would stay here again.

We really appreciated the extra amenities such as beach gear and bottled water and kitchen utensils for use. And the fan and AC were super useful for a solid nights sleep for those of us not used to the humidity. Room is just as cute as in the pictures and very well kept. We really loved this place and appreciate Sean and Rosie hosting us!!

    Kira2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Chandy’s home is beautiful. From the warm welcome of Grizzly at the door after a long flight, friendly conversation before going to bed and being made to feel welcome from the moment we got there, I could not recommend this place more. Chandy is a great host and very hospitable. I wish we had more time on the island to see and do some things. I know Chandy would have had some great recommendations. We were only on the island for the night. Chandy even gave us a ride to the airport in the morning. I cannot say enough. Our room was clean and bright in the morning and the bathroom was clean and fresh. Bagels, oatmeal, juice and coffee were offered. What more could you ask for.

  • Wonderful room within minutes from Kona International airport

  • Chandy's place is a really sweet spot to land. I came in after a long journey and multiple plane rides to a welcoming and warm home. The room is clean and tidy and the house is very family friendly.

  • Paul’s place was perfectly stocked, clean, and super accessible to Alii and town and other beaches. Super simple, cute, and the back lanai is perfect for winding down after a long day. Amazing Airbnb will definitely stay again :)

    Zahara Meg2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great value and location! Lots of extra amenities to help with your stay. The pool is amazing!

    Nicole2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Paul’s place!! It was so clean and had many amenities from kitchen stuff to beach gear. Will definitely keep his place in mind if we head back to Kona.

    Allison2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great location

    Marilyn2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place was even better than we expected- clean, comfortable, quiet, lovely lanai perfect for morning coffee and afternoon reading, many restaurants all within a mile, and a pool overlooking the ocean. Best yet, a great little coffee and smoothie place right next door. We loved that there was air conditioning, but never even needed to use it. The condo had a lovely breeze and wonderful ceiling fans. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Liz2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The location is perfect! It's walking distance to downtown Kona. The room was away from road, so it was very quiet at night. The view was awesome! You can relax at pool side while watching the ocean. The owners were very friendly and response quickly and support us for our needs. The room was very cozy and perfect place to relax!

    Kailua-Kona, HI, United States

    This quaint & private cottage is located in Kaloko, Kailua Kona, HI and is located less than 15 minutes from the the Kona International Airport.
    This is a small studio cottage with private bathroom and queen size bed set on a beautiful 3-acre property surrounded by native Hawaiian forest, alive with birdsong and sounds of nature. There is a small refrigerator (not a full kitchen). Please note that no more than 2 persons would fit comfortably in this space. It is great for a couple (someone you are used to sharing a space with). Most guests say it really works well for them if they’re just looking for a place to sleep, shower, have easy style meals (sandwiches, yogurts, fruits etc) & are planning to be out & about exploring most of the day. I start you off with some fresh ground coffee, creamers & sugar. Pitcher of filtered water in the mini fridge.
    Kaloko is set in a beautiful protected forest.
  • This perfectly sized little cottage was exactly what I needed for my last night on the island

    Peter2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and great location for exploring the Kona side of the Big Island!

    Ginny2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • We ended up spending only a few hours at this lovely cottage due to some travel mix ups. However, this cottage is so lovely that I want to go back! The hosts are very responsive and kind. The space is very clean and relaxing. I would highly recommend this cottage to any traveler looking for a cozy space in an amazing setting.

    Elise2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We choose this location because we were coming in late and it is close to the airport. But while it is only 15 minutes away it is in another world. Just out of the valley and up into the beautifully forested hills. I love Airbnb because people are willing to share their amazing places with others. This cute cottage is beautiful decorated with many thoughtful touches. There was a bowl with some fruit waiting for us. Which we really appreciated after a long day of flying and munching on snack food all day. I don’t know why people would stay in a hotel when they can stay in a amazing place like this for less than the cost of a hotel room. The bed was very comfortable and we got a great nights sleep. We would definitely stay here again and probably for a longer period of time. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful place with us.

    Diana2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great private place close to the airport and downtown. Everything was just as advertised!

    Audrey2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect getaway in a quiet neighborhood. Loved the rain forest all around it. Close enough to Kona. Bed was so comfortable!

    Lisa2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great little cottage with a queen bed and bathroom. It's up on the mountain side of the island so it's a lot cooler of a place to stay than if you were costal. Great communication with the hosts.

    Zach2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This location is perfect. Not too far from the action, but still far enough from the noise. Mele and Paulo are chill and easy going. The space is small and enough for two people. Has just about all you need. You'll hear hawaii nature at night and in the AM. Check it out!
