About Nanette and Anne

We have enjoyed exploring the Big Island for over 25 years and love to share our island home with guests from around the world. As fellow travelers, we know how to make guests feel at home and welcome. We designed and built Bears' Place ourselves specifically as a Guest House in 2007. Having been in the Hawaii vacation accommodation business since the 1980s, we knew what features the home needed to provide guests with a great vacation experience. Our third generation of family members are now guest house hosts in training.

Why Nanette and Anne chose Kailua Kona

We chose the location, because we felt it was the best place to live on the island - close to our favorite beaches, handy to shopping and dining, close to a gorgeous golf course and a short drive to the airport. The hillside location makes for lovely ocean views of the Kona Coast, and the elevation of 1600 feet gives us the perfect year round temperature, so heating and cooling aren't necessary.

What makes this studio unique

One of the nice things about the four spacious studios that comprise the guest house is that they also work great for family reunions and wedding parties - guests who want to have the whole home to themselves. Guests can cook meals in the full kitchen and have fun together, yet they can also choose to enjoy the privacy of their own space, complete with kitchenette for that early morning cup of coffee or late night snack.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nice place to stay, near Kailua and the beautiful beaches of North Kona/South Kohala. Rooms are perfect, big and clean, with a nice lanai and stuff to cook on the room. Our hostess were nice and friendly, and they gave us nice tips about where to go for bodyboarding and snorkel. If we ever go back to Hawaii we will stay back with them. Thanks!

A wonderful and quiet place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Kalua Kona was most pleasant and enjoyable! Our 10 days of exploring the Island went smoothly to a large degree because of being able to settle into the comfortable, clean, quiet and relaxing suite and beautiful natural surroundings we experienced while staying at Bear’s Place Guest House. We had wanted to find a pleasant alternative to a condo or hotel and were drawn to the website for Bear’s Place Guest House. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at the attention to small details that gave our accommodation a personal touch, eg. finding a plate of fresh fruit and muffins and orchid in the fridge for us to enjoy the first morning. Our suite was very well supplied with everything from extra blankets and linens for an extra sleeping bed, to a well stocked kitchenette giving us the complete flexibility to plan for preparing meals if we so chose. We loved eating and sitting under the covered and private lanai outside, surrounded by banana plants and inquisitive geckos. The design of the guest house ensures each suite to have a full amount of privacy and independence. We made good use of the free WIFI service provided to check emails etc. We were able to use the amenities of Bear’s Place o do our own laundry and dishes, and be able to even pack a provided cooler to take with us on daytrips. We appreciated being higher on the sloped hills above Kona where it was both cooler and quieter. Bear’s Place is conveniently located only within 15-20 minutes driving of downtown Kona. , or 10 minutes from the Kona airport. Travelling north on the Island was super easy using the nearby Mamalaoha Highway. Only a mile away from Bear’s Place is also a convenience store and gas pump, with a good restaurant/pizza service inside from which to order take- out food. We would certainly highly recommend Bear’s Place to anyone visiting Kalua Kona! Thank you to our welcoming and hospitable hosts, Nanette and Anne!

Wonderful guest house

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay. Bears Place was centrally located, clean and comfortable. Nanette and Anne did all they could to make us feel at home -- from leaving a breakfast in the refrigerator to leaving a snack for us each night.

Kona side Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Diligent searching for a weekend getaway with Mainland visitor led me to Bear's Place, and I'm so glad we found you!
Your home was just right for us to establish as a home base while we toured the Kona area. High enough that traffic, smaze, and noise were nonexistent, and close enough that we didn't feel isolated or out of touch.
Our hosts were more than accommodating and helpful, and the family atmosphere made us feel right at home.
We especially appreciated the wonderful books on local lore and stories. We now own two of the favorites cuz they were so worthwhile having our own copies!
As vacation rental owners ourselves, we found all to our satisfaction re: cleanliness, amenities, and quality furnishing. I have posted Bear's Place information in our Kapoho home so you know that we liked it enough to recommend it to our renters.
Mahalo for a pleasant stay and we will definitely return next we want to come to Kona.
