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.

The property is currently being planted with coffee and we look forward to sharing a cup of Kona's Best with you.

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

AMAZING PLACE TO STAY IN KONA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Kaloko Cottage for the first week of our Honeymoon. The property is amazing and we can't say enough good things about it.

The location is excellent - it's 15 minutes from the main area of Kona, which means you're away from the beach-town bustle and tourist-trap main roads, however it's super easy to get down there. It's at approximately 2000 ft so it's cool at night (I always feel warm and it was pleasant and cool without A/C - we didn't even need the fans). It's also easy to get to Costco and other shopping centers.

Outside the cottage is a private picnic table and hedges which separate the house from the main property. You feel like it is very private, but also know the owners are close by in case you need them. Peter and Libby were wonderful hosts, and Peter gave great directions and recommendations.

The house is a spacious and clean design, with an open huge kitchen area. We did not expect all the utilities and appliances they had available including cookware. There was also a cooler, snorkel equipment and beach chairs which we put to good use! The kitchen was also stocked with supplies such as spices, butter, coffee and jam. Some was from the owners, some from prior renters (but none of it was sketchy or old).

the bathroom was beautiful and clean with big bottles of bath products and towels. Hot water and water pressure were excellent.

Overall, this is an amazing place to stay in Kona. Should we return we will book here 100%. Looking at the run-down hotels by the ocean, and the gimmicky beach-town I can't believe people pay 3 times as much to stay there. This was a private, picturesque cottage that felt like a home but with all the amenities a visitor would need. We really can't thank Peter and Libby enough.

Quiet Location, Cooler Temps!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the Kaloko cottage. Peter and Libby were wonderful and welcoming hosts, available if needed, but also made sure you had plenty of privacy.

The location is really beautiful, close to some really nice trails and a 10-15mins drive into town to pick up whatever essentials you need - for us it was fish at the KTA and poke at Sac n Save.

Excellent place to stay

We stayed here while doing some hiking, scuba diving, and fishing in Kona. Just a short drive to town, food, groceries, etc. Clean and comfortable. Would gladly stay here again.

Fantastic home in Kona

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house located only 10 minutes from the airport and 15min from the town. Entering the property we were greeted by Peter and Libby and given a tour of the home. The house is surrounded by lovely flowers, coffee Bean trees and the odd chicken running around. It was very clean and had everything you could possibly want or need available to us. Costco is not very far away and allowed us to stock the fridge with all of our necessities. The homeowners have items for the beach including goggles and snorkels and were available if we had any questions on the area (really helped us with travel tips ) I would highly recommend it and if we are ever back in Hawaii we will definitely be staying with them again.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to stay, we didn't want to leave. We were able to have our dog and she loved chasing the chickens and just sitting outside enjoying the perfect weather. The studio was clean and cozy and had everything we needed. We just moved to Hawaii and needed a short term place to stay. The owners are lovely people and really make you feel very comfortable and welcome. Don't miss your chance to stay at this wonderful place.
