Overview

Kailua Kona Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Large Open Floor Plan Cottage - Sleeps 4

Kaloko Mauka Guest Cottage.

Located above Kailua Kona, on the slopes of Hualalai, this unique 1200 sq foot cottage

is just the place to enjoy your Big Island adventure.

Conveniently located just minutes from Kona Airport, Costco, and Kailua Kona Town, you won't miss a beat. Great activities, beaches and dining located just 5 - 6 miles away.

Cool elevation and lush foliage surround you in this peaceful

3 acre property. It is not unusual that the temperature is 15 degrees cooler than Kailua Kona. During the cooler season , enjoy the warmth of your own electric fireplace with a simple click of the remote.

Nature lovers will enjoy the abundant variety of plants and birds that surround the area. Mornings greet you with clean crisp air that is not affected by the VOG that sometimes is seen in town.

Kona has a great open market that offers a variety of exotic fresh fruits and vegetables, and traditional ones as well, that are grown locally, and at a fraction of the price found in the grocery stores.

Cook your meals and dine outdoors under the sky littered with stars.

Or simply enjoy your cocktails over looking the Ohia forest.

For our friends with limited mobility, the single level cottage is perfect. Park in front of your front door and enter the cottage. No parking lots or parking fees.

The cottage design is simple and open. A king sized bed and a queen sized bed will provide lots of room for a couple or a family. Sports fans...you won't miss a game, as your private DIRECT TV dish will ensure that you can keep up with all for favorite teams.

About Libby Gillis

Recently retired and enjoying the Kona Coast .

Libby Gillis purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Libby Gillis chose Kailua Kona

We had been planning on moving to the Big Island for years. We looked to purchase a home in various locations and we are so happy to be in Kaloko. It seems like a world away, yet we are so close to everything. A short drive and we can be dining on the beach. Its like being on another island...so cool!

enchanting

  • of 5

Driving onto the property felt like when I see Hobbiton in the Lord of the Rings, the irresistible longing to dive into the picture CS Lewis style. As you enter the property you look down across beautiful landscaping to a cozy country home and a cottage nestled under the trees. The owners, Peter and Libby, come out and give you a warm, genuine welcome, make you feel at home as they show you around the 1200 sq ft cottage. They've put thought and care into their tenants' needs, from supplying many unexpected things (see other reviews), to planting shrubs and installing fencing for tasteful privacy between the cottage and their home. They've also clearly put in hours of heart and sweat, coaxing paradise out of the scraggy, crumbly lava rock everyone on this island has to work with. Added perks for me - the higher you go up the hill, the cooler the temperature at night and the more isolated you feel. This is a huge plus for someone who can't fall asleep to the sound of traffic (me) or the hum of air conditioners (me again), and who loves the sounds that should be there - crickets, bird songs, very occasional dog bark. Coming 'home' (how quickly it feels like home) to cool, misty evenings was a delicious contrast to the heat at the beach or on hikes. Staying with Libby and Peter you will feel that you're not just being touristy but getting a peek at what life on this island might be like. You might find yourself wondering about real estate next door. I defy you to dislike this place - not possible.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay at this cottage. Its beautiful, spacious and very well supplied. I agree with the other reviews that report this has everything you need. From flashlights, sewing kits, spice rack in the kitchen to shampoo and shower gel in the bathroom. Owners are super friendly and gave us a tour around the property - including the incredible chameleon couple in their trees! The fire place was fantastic as we were actually a little chilly in the evenings! It would be nice to have a dryer, but they do have a clothes line. We stayed at a few property rentals throughout the islands, and this was both of our favorites.

Can't ask more!

The Kaloko Cottage was exactly we expected or more than we expected. We slept peacefully in the comfortable king bed with the clean and crisp sheets and pillows in the spacious cool and quiet room. It is located at 2,400 feet - 10 degrees cooler than the beach, and yet conveniently located, being close to Kailua-Kona, beaches and the Kona airport. If you're into strenuous exercises, walk/run the Kaloko-Hao loop with numerous steep hills. Peter, who picked two avocados for us, and Libby are friendly, personable, accommodating, and informative - wonderful folks. The cottage is meticulously equipped with everything, including a flash light and a sewing kit, you need. We were able to watch the Super Bowl on the big TV set, feeling at home. Life was very good there!

Perfect stay

  • of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Kaloko cottage. Pete and Liddy were perfect hosts. They live a little distance from cottage but never impose on your privacy. They had great suggestions. The cottage is perfectly located. Easy access to town and beaches as well as historic sites. We stayed for a week and loved it. Quiet peaceful. Low key would definitely recommend

Kaloko cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the kaloko cottage for a week with our dog. The place is clean, quiet, private and surrounded by nature. The owners are exceptionally nice people. Kona gets hot but kaloko remains cool throughout the day - with temps ranging about 10-15F lower than Kona town. Our dog loved the spacious property and all of the nearby hiking trails. We had great time!
