Relax . . . Discover . . . Indulge . . .
Located above the Kona coast line in Kona Heavens our unit (650sqft) offers comfortable elegance surrounded by our fruit orchard, palm trees, fragrant and exquisite tropical flowers. Enjoy the spectacular coast line panorama of North Kona from your unit, lanai or from the pool. Sleep soundly as cool mountain breezes gently rustle the palms and trees. Begin your day with listening to our many birds as morning slowly awakens along the coast line.
After arriving at the airport on Big Island a short 8 minute drive will bring you to our luxurious property in KONA HEAVENS. The elevation of 1000 ft (300m) is perfect for comfortable, temperate and relaxing nights. Stepping out into the pool area you have landed. Now it's time to enjoy the sunsets, lay back and let go!
Big Island is yours!!! Uncountable adventures await the curious.
When you are ready pack a lunch and explore. It takes only a 12 to 40 minute drive to reach any of the 10 different, beautiful beaches to the north. Feel free to take along our beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, beach towels and beach mats.
If you would like, plan your day with the help from your hosts. Only a short drive away to the south you can explore Big Island favorites: Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (The Place of Refuge) National Historic Park and Kahalu'u Beach Park (best snorkel beach). At Kealakekua Bay rent a kayak and take along our snorkel gear to encounter vibrantly colored tropical Hawaiian fish, sea turtles (Honu) and spinner dolphins while exploring the crystal blue waters near the Captain Cook Monument.
Enjoy a hike at Volcanoes National Park or visit the summit of Mauna Kea.
Hungry after a day of fun and new experiences?
Although there are many excellent restaurants in Kailua Kona (5 minutes from here) you might like to stay in, visit one of the Big Islands farmers markets for island fresh produces and prepare your own BBQ in our spacious pool area. Also our unit kitchenette is equipped with all you need for a private gourmet meal.
Before retiring relax to a beautiful sunset or a spectacular star filled sky in our outdoor hot tub!
Come and enjoy!!!

We are Ursula and Roland and moved to Kona not long ago from Switzerland. Ursula is retired teacher and Roland was a professional classical musician. After exploring many places of the world and all the Hawaiian Islands the decision was made to settle here in Kona Heavens.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2011
We bought our property with you in mind. The peaceful beauty and serenity of our home will give you the vacation you deserve. Our Suites provide an atmosphere of understated elegance with ocean and garden views. So don’t hesitate! Our beautiful house and we both are waiting to welcome you to share our Aloha.
Our sun drenched Kona coast is truly a vacationer’s paradise! This is THE place for outdoor activities all year ! Be adventurous, go explore! In the winter months you can go to Maune Kea and even play in the snow, and later on drive down and frolic in the ocean! Where else in the world ist that possible? After a day of tropical island adventures you will come back to your place in Kona Heavens and look forward to swim in our saline pool and a relaxing soak in the hottub. This is your time to be lazy, watch the sunset and enjoy tranquility.
March 16 to April 1
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, this was our first time staying in Kona at a slightly higher elevation as we have always been down at the Alii Drive level area, and after being up here, it’s the only place we will stay if we make it back to the Big Island again. The cool evening breeze was a welcome relief after a hot day of activities, and the sunsets from the pool or outdoor shower made it all the better. Add to that fresh fruits from the garden and well its someplace you won’t want to leave.
What a great place, we were welcomed with fruit, muffins and chocolates and a complete tour of the premises. Ursula and Roland also invited us for a happy hour and we were able to meet the other guests and had a great evening of visiting. The yard is beautiful and you can pick fresh fruit to eat. The pool, hot tub and outdoor shower was great. The location is easy to find and close to shopping and activities. They also had a bbq, coolers, water shoes, beach chairs etc that we could use. Kitchen was stocked with all necessary plates, appliances and the premises were clean and area was quite. We would highly recommend this place for your stay. Thank you Ursula and Roland for your hospitality, Murray, Gale, Dick and Dawn
A perfect place to stay while exploring Big Island!
The owners, Ursula and Roland welcomed us into their home and provided us with wonderful Fruit and Pupu’s ( appetizers)
This place is awesome , the pool and the hot tub was very relaxing after a long day of adventure and the best was the outdoor shower and watch the sunset ! ! !
The whole area is very clean and well-maintained, as were our accommodations.
All in all, we greatly enjoyed our 5 day stay. You won't go wrong renting this.

Physical setting- House location is convenient, easily driven to and located at an altitude of 1,000 feet up from the coast which allows for cooler temps and a lovely breeze; apartments are comfortable, well appointed with high quality bed and bath linens, kitchens well stocked and there is a lovely pool. The garden is like a walk through a botanical garden; lush, meticulously well kept, abundant with fruit which the hosts readily share.
Hosts- Ursula and Roland are gracious, generous and exemplify Swiss hospitality. In addition to the memorable evenings we spent sitting with them on their lanai, we were treated to the sounds of their exquisite music making almost nightly; Roland on the oboe and Ursula on the harpsichord. They are accomplished musicians, among many other talents.
Though our trip to Hawaii was a working trip, returning to Heliconia each afternoon was simply ideal.
There are two units at this property, both of which are on the floor below the owners' floor. One unit is a single bedroom - but also has outside beds, the other is a two-bedroom unit, with a reduced fee if only one of the two bedrooms is used.
This review is for the two bedroom unit, both bedrooms in use.
The location of this Kona rental is perfect. Quiet neighborhood with beautifully landscaped and well-maintained properties. The grounds of this property are lovely, and include an inground pool, hottub, and convenient outdoor shower with hot and cold water.
The view of the ocean is nice.
The owners, Ursula and Roland, are available, friendly, and especially attentive. Additionally, they were sociable to the point of introducing us to various of their friends, whom we enjoyed visiting. This by itself made our stay with them more enjoyable than it would have been had we been on our own.
Roland and Ursula are accomplished musicians who will entertain you with their music if you are interested. They and their friends are botanical experts regarding the local flora and are enthusiastic about sharing their love of gardening.
As for the unit, it is clean, attractive, and wholly relaxing. Various kitchen items are included. The stove is a one burner induction-type device. There is a small refrigerator, plus a larger one shared with the other unit. There is also a microwave. We found this setup all we needed for our cooking needs, and Roland offered to supply us with additional burners if such were needed.
All sorts of beachware, including oversize beach towels, beach umbrella, beach chairs, body boards, and snorkling gear are supplied.
All in all, we greatly enjoyed our weeklong stay. You won't go wrong renting this. Highly recommended.
We can't say enough about Ursula and Roland. Their beautiful home and garden was just the beginning to our wonderful stay! Their knowledge of Kona and the things to do made our vacation stress free. In our rental, we found almost everything we needed, from cooking needs(pot,dishes,spices) to boogie boards,chairs,and coolers. The rental was very clean and felt like home. The best was the outdoor shower!! I know that sounds wierd to some, but the view was spectacular and still had privacy. We will definantly return. Thank you Ursula and Roland!!!
