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!

Gorgeous View With A Catch

  • 2 of 5
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, 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.

A priviate piece of paradise RIGHT on the Ocean with a great lanai.

  • 5 of 5
The wife and I stayed here and loved it. Great price for a private, romantic spot right on the water. Only a short walk to a great beach and Outstanding! snorkeling. We'll be back in 2012.

Avoid this dump

  • 1 of 5
I'm actually writing this from the bedroom of this place. This place is a serious dump. Where to begin?first it's on the market and can be viewed by interested buyers at any time. It advertises a hot tub but it doesn't work. The fuse keeps blowing. Then the shower broke just now. The place is in a horible state. Wood rotting eveywhere. Paint peeling. No roof for the lanai so furniture is always wet. And to top it all off, our car got robbed within the first five minutes we got here, between opening the place up to check it out and then going out to our car to grab our stuff. It's super loud too, both street and ocean noise. Only redeeming quality is the location.

Owner's Response: This oceanfront cottage has been remodeled outside to include a new roof and fencing and new yard. This guest arrived right after the most severe storm we had in years and it blew off the awning. It took time to get a new roof put on. I am sure this guest was notified of this situation before their arrival.
The house was (is no longer but was) for sale but we have HAVE NEVER allowed showing during guest stays so that is BS. Sounds like an unhappy person to me?
For a one bedroom charming oceanfront cottage (it is 40+ years old), this home is priced very reasonably. The photos depict exactly what you get; a 40+ year old charming honeymoon cottage right on the water and located on the best snorkel and surf spot on the Big Island. Insofar as a break-in unfortunately this happens in all resort locations periodically especially if anything is left in plain sight. Rental cars are easy targets as well all know.
