THE COTTAGE, "MAHINA MELI MAKAI" (OCEANSIDE HONEYMOON)

Kailua Kona Cottage Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom oceanfront Cottage

"The Cottage", Mahina Meli Makai (Oceanside Honey Moon)

This truly oceanfront (and we mean oceanfront) cottage, is all about a peaceful quiet Romantic Hawaiian Holiday dream come true. Just the two of you.

This "Honeymoon Getaway" begins the moment you arrive and step through the gate. Once inside you will see nothing but the exotic truly tropical décor right at natures hypnotizing oceanfront door!

This darling cottage is fully equipped with all the accoutrements you can find yourself wanting, all in Hawaiian style! You will forget there is another world out there.

Watch the calming seas from the master bedroom (also oceanfront) and let the sound of the sea lull you to sleep. The main living area spills right onto the oversized oceanfront lanai designed for early morning coffee, quiet reading, or lighthearted entertainment by the dimming light of Kona’s spectacular world famous sunsets.

This bungalow is a true Hawaiian tropical paradise.

Come to be rested, come to make special memories, come to be delighted. Leave booking your stay for next year!

Just a few steps down the shoreline you will find Kahalu’u Beach State Park, famous for its encounters with the graceful green Hawaiian Sea Turtles.

If you are seeking local markets and historical context, downtown Kailua-Kona is approximately a 10 minute drive for easy access to shopping, businesses, waterfront restaurants and hotels. Watch the people and the cruise ships come and go from the Kailua Pier. Visit the famous Farmer's Market. Enjoy a shave ice or a cup of Kona coffee, have a light snack or a gourmet meal, buy an inexpensive souvenir or a piece of fine art, book an activity, go for a swim or hang out on the many beautiful beaches.

Up the coast is a busy marina with Hawaii's best scuba diving, big-game fishing, kayaking, dolphin and whale watching and other ocean activities. Hale Akala is conveniently located, a great home base to explore the many wonders of the Big Island including Volcano National Park, Mauna Kea Observatory, coffee and macadamia nut farms, artist communities, and more!

Reviewer Comments:
Upon arrival we found 6 dead roaches, two of which were already deteriorating so we know those had been there quite a while. The side doors in the bedroom don't have a threshold (and neither do the doors in the living area) so the dirt and bugs come in constantly. Evidently the maid doesn't clean to try and compensate for this. A considerable amount of dirt and left over trash from prior visits can be found under the bed and behind the side tables. We put a towel on the floor in front of the door while we were there.
The cottage would be wonderful if the doors in the bedroom and living area would seal at least a little bit. That would cut the bug problem down considerably and help keep the cottage cleaner. If this was done, it would be worth what we paid for it.

Reviewer Comments:
We had trespassers on the property. They walked in through the unlocked gate and walked into our living space. They announced themselves as the owners and they took offense when we asked them to leave. We filed a police report and got a lock for the gate so the property was somewhat safe. We didn't feel safe there.

Reviewer Comments:
Condition of house was disappointing; View was lovely

We arrived on Saturday afternoon and soon realized that with the exception of the fridge and bathroom the house was dirty and infested with mice and cockroaches. We called the weekend number and the woman who answered the phone was very nice, but could not get us any help (mouse traps) until Monday afternoon. This was disappointing.
Over our week-long stay at The Cottage, we disposed of 8 mice and numerous dead cockroaches. Every part of the house was full of mouse poop - even the kitchen drawers and cupboards. The floors were black with dirt and the rugs had perhaps never been washed as two were stuck to the floor. We ended up buying our own cleaning supplies, and mouse and cockroach traps. Cleaning and vermin killing was not something we wanted to do on our vacation.
The ceiling fan in the living room did not work so it was hot and stuffy when the doors were closed. We asked about this and they sent a very nice repairman to fix it right away. As he fixed it we realized that the fan was not hooked up to anything and had been broken for a while. So, although it was fixed right away - that was great - it begged the question why it wasn't fixed before we arrived.
The view from the house is spectacular. It is located right on the water and has a lovely view of the sunsets and surfers. The surf was high when we were there and the sound of crashing waves was very loud. As all the oceanfront in Hawaii is public, there were often surfers outside the house. We liked this as they were fun to watch.
I called to complain about the cleanliness of the property and although the person I spoke with was nice they did not refund any of the fees we had paid. We decided to leave the house 3 days early (to end our vacation a non-mice-infested hotel room) and they did refund the money for those nights. We appreciated that.
I found the state of the house unacceptable and would not recommend it. It needs a lot of work but could be a spectacular property if properly

Reviewer Comments:
The negatives outweigh the positives at The Cottage. The price is great and the views are stunning, but they won't make up for the cockroaches, ants, and mice you'll encounter during your stay. I called the management company, Boundless Hawaii, twice during our stay about the infestation: the first time the day after we checked in, and the next the day before we departed. They were friendly and courteous, but said it would take 3 days to get an exterminator out to place traps - I had to do some convincing it get them out the following afternoon. 24 hours later a strong odor alerted us that each of the 4 mice traps had caught a mouse.

There is a BBQ in the side yard, and we were looking forward to grilling dinner one of the nights, but seeing 4-inch long roaches scurry over the kitchen countertops and fly in and out of the open doors is revolting, and enough to make us loose our appetites.

No roach traps were set.

The Cottage lacks air circulation, and without AC, temperatures in the evenings reached well over 85 degrees, making it uncomfortable and difficult to sleep. There were two ceiling fans, and one portable fan in the bedroom which helped, but not much. The ceiling fan in the living room was broken. And without lockable bug screens on any of the windows or doors, we were unable to leave them open for long periods of time.

The house is in need of repairs: A number of the door locks and latches were broken or loose, leaving big gaps between the doors and the door frame. The latch to the window in the kitchen was corroded and couldn't be opened.

No roach traps were set, which was strange, and we resorted to killing, trapping, or chasing them from the house ourselves.

The Cottage lacks air circulation, and without AC, temperatures in the evenings reached well over 85 degrees, making it uncomfortable and difficult to sleep. There were two ceiling fans, and one portable fan in the bedroom which helped, but not much. The ceiling fan in the living room was broken. And without lockable bug screens on any of the windows or doors, we were unable to leave them open for long periods of time. Suggestion to the management company: Blackout shades in the bedroom and living room (or sunshades on the lanai) would have helped keep the house relatively cool on hot evenings. Instead, we attached the comforter from the bed to the rod above the bedroom door facing the water to block the hot afternoon sun.

Aside from the uncomfortably hot evenings and bug and rodent issues, the house is in need of repairs. A number of the door locks and latches were broken or loose, leaving big gaps between the doors and the door frame, making it difficult to truly secure The Cottage. The latch to the window in the kitchen was corroded and couldn't be opened. The laminate drawers and cabinets in the bedroom are cracking and falling apart.

We won't be returning.
