Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
Best of both worlds! Private 2 bedroom cottage with full kitchen and bath located at a cooler elevation of 2100' in Kaloko Mauka. Close to fantastic hiking trails, but only 10 minutes to the airport and beaches, yet still only 15 minutes to Kona town. Enjoy a hike and bird watching in the morning and then head to the beach for more fun in the sun. After a day in the heat come back and enjoy a cooler mountain climate which allows for more comfortable sleeping. The temperature at this elevation is usually 15 degrees cooler then sea level. Great for a romantic getaway or family holiday. After a full day enjoy a soak in the large outdoor bath tub. This cottage has open beam cedar ceilings, bamboo flooring, an over sized custom shower. It is stocked with everything you will need for your holiday. For those cooler winter mornings, there is... Read more

If you are looking for a quiet out of the way place look no farther. The house is on private property very near the Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation and the Kona Cloud Forest. It is a nicely appointed 2 bedroom cottage with 1 bath. The shower is huge. The front room has a wood burning fireplace if you feel cold...

Management response:

Sorry to hear about your toe Judy. That redwood burl was found on a beach in Northern Ca and Bill turned it into the coffe table. I hoped you heal quickly.

The cottage is set on a bushy mountainside a short drive from Kona. It is so quiet and peaceful - a great place to recharge the batteries. Take a walk up the road and find all the amazing fruits, flowers and plants that grow on this island. It is obvious the cottage has been made by a skilled craftsman using...

We chose this place because of it's location: first, it is well positioned for adventures all over the island. Second, it is located on a mountainside, which makes it significantly cooler than comparable properties in Kona. We beat the heat every night and it was the perfect refuge when we needed a break from the sun! In addition, this spacious...

About the neighbourhood
Kaloko Mauka is a subdivision of larger properties, 1-20 acres parcels. Feels like you are away from it all, but it's only 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes to town. Heavily forested, it is a sub tropical climate, so afternoon showers are common. Great for hiking and bird watching. There is a small market with good take out pizza just 5 minutes away, Costco is a short 8 minute drive, and the closest beach just 10 minute drive. Best of both worlds.
