About Albert Holt

Albert and Linda Holt moved to the Big Island after deciding they needed something to do after working in Silicon Valley for the past 30 years. A Kona Coffee farm seemed to be just the ticket. Having had vacation rentals in Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas they were excited about being able to share the Kona Coffee farming experience, and the Big Island Hawaii experience with others, so they built a guest residence just for that purpose. Pictured here with the very first roasted and bagged coffee from our first year (2007) crop.

Albert Holt purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Albert Holt chose Holualoa

Being away from the resorts and tourist hustle and bustle, yet close enough to everything in order to be able to experience the true Hawaii and Aloha.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Panoramic ocean views, 1400 feet above sea level where the air is clean and cool, wild turkeys and chickens, and the occasional pig wandering the property, night time nature sounds, calm no traffic lifestyle and plenty of property to stretch out in.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay started with detailed driving directions from the airport and it got better from there. It is impossible to describe the view as you walk down the hill to the lower unit of the building and then you realize the view is the same from the sliding doors in the bedroom and the outdoor kitchen. During the day we explored the island but choose to come back for a peaceful dinner overlooking the city rather than eating out. The unit itself is modern and well equipped. It has a large bath and bedroom as well as a comfortable living room with a wet bar. If it is important to you there is a large HD tv in the living room. My only suggestion would be to have a pair of binoculars available. This was our first visit to the island and if we come back this will be our place to stay.

Unbelievable beauty and amenities

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you drive down the private road, after following the perfect driving directions, you know you are going somewhere special. The view cannot be described and pictures do it no justice. This is the 4th year in a row we have stayed in Holualoa, and this is by far the best view, location, everything we have ever experienced. In fact, it's the best VRBO experience we have had period. The outdoor kitchen lets you feel like you are really experiencing something out of the ordinary, and the lack of any bugs was amazing (may be the time of year?).

Hotel quality bedding, nicest bathroom have ever seen and a fantastic mix of useful furniture, audio/video and kitchen utensils covers every need. For example, the microwave is a GE Profile, not some cheapo brand, and even acts as a convection oven!

Albert was very hospitable and even made an effort to come see us to make sure everything was ok and gave us a mini coffee farm tour.

We plan on coming back to Hawaii for a few more years and know exactly where we will be staying!

Wonderful up-country Kona alternative to Alii Drive

  • 5 of 5

This property, along with the owner's other VRBO rental upstairs in the same building, are smack in the middle of a coffee plantation far up the mountain yet only a 10 minute drive from the center of Kailua-Kona. Both units are modern, roomy, and bright. The smaller unit, which we rented, is on the lower level, and includes a large bath, a very large master bedroom with a King sized bed from which one can see the lights of Kailua and any liners or smaller boats in the harbor, a comfortable sitting/TV room with a wet bar, and a covered outdoor modern kitchen on the lanai. Well-equipped for lawn and beach equipment, internet, flat screen TV(s), nicely landscaped. We've been visiting Kona every couple of years for 40 years, and this is the first time we've chosen a property such as this one. We definitely plan to do it again. This unit is not accessible to people with mobility impairments because of its siting. The upper unit *should* be OK in this regard. (This isn't yet an issue for us but we are sensitive to it.) I can't remember the VRBO number for the upstairs unit. Contact the owner, who was very helpful.

Super spot with all amenities and great view

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything that you need to get right at home and still feel spoiled. We were really pleased and would definitely stay here again. It's a bit of a drive from downtown Kona so you will need a car but it is a special getaway and the view is wonderful. We only discovered the amazing coffee and view at the farm next door on our last day- make sure to check that out if you go!

Beautiful place...away from the hustle and bustle of Kona!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this place and were amazed by the beautiful view of Kona! And then we went inside and thought the place was beautiful as well. A perfect little home away from home for us! It was very clean and had all the necessary amenities. I will admit I was a little concerned about this place after reading some of the reviews about having to wash the towels and take out the trash...but it looked like an awesome place. But seriously, taking out the trash and throwing the towels in the washing machine shouldn't be a big deal for any adult! The driveway and grass walking down to the property is fairly steep but you just need to be careful. There are motion lights all the way to the door. We really enjoyed being right next to coffee trees and being away from the crowds. We never had the pleasure of meeting the owners, but Albert seemed very nice and helpful through email. I would highly recommend this place!

Loved the wild turkeys too

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Al's place is as promised. We had one extra visitor, a mouse under the fridge a couple of nights, but otherwise the experience was ideal, quiet, cool, dry (no rain at all), and near enough to the activities we enjoyed. Also liked the little village of Halualoa that is near this place.

The Vog was in almost every day, but that would have been true no matter where we stayed.

There was a bit of noise from footsteps in the unit above ours. Didnt get to meet Al, and it would be helpful if there were some local there to inform us of activities and ideas locally, instead of the nice email from Al on those subjects.

Would stay again.
