KALOKO COTTAGE - UPCOUNTRY KONA,MINUTES FROM KAILUA KONA

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.

Recently retired and enjoying the Kona Coast .

Libby Gillis purchased this cottage in 2011

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!

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.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon, we wanted a quiet getaway to relax. That is just what it was. It was perfect, out in the mountain a little, easy to find. It was away from the city and tourist but close enough in case you needed to run to the store or the beach. It had all the comforts of home plus many extras that hotels just don't have. I would definitely stay here again when we go back. The owners were nice and had great recommendations for restaurants.

Just a terrific place to stay

  • 5 of 5
As arranged beforehand, we arrived a few hours before check in to drop off our bags before heading off on a Mauna Kea tour. Pete greeted us warmly and was very accommodating - showing us the cottage and all of the features. He even leant us a copy of the Big Island 'blue book' and offered some advice on places to go.

We didn't expect to get into the cottage until later that night but Pete and Libby had it all ready for us which was great!

The cottage was very clean and very well maintained. The location is quiet and so scenic - we marvelled over the beauty of the property many times. The outdoor seating areas were great to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The facilities were second to none - full kitchen, washing machine, great spacious bathroom, lounge area, very comfy king bed plus another queen (?) bed. Loved the provided beach gear (chairs, cooler, snorkels, boogie boards...)

The cottage is so much bigger than it looks in the photos - it's huuuuge!

This was the final stop on our island hopping trip and it was definitely the best property we stayed at. We absolutely loved everything about it!

Wonderful Kona Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cabin for 6 night and had a wonderful time. Peter was an excellent host and the cabin is spacious. We've stayed at many other vacation rentals before and have never found a place so well equipped with essentials such as toiletries. There was coffee waiting for us and some bottles of water in the fridge. The cabin is so private and your view of the night sky is incredible. We found the bed to be firmer than we prefer, but the bedding was fabulous. Overall, our best stay in Kona yet.

A lovely, extremely comfortable and well appointed haven awaited us on our arrival; easy to get to from the airport - about 10 - 15 minutes away. Quiet, with elements of a tropical paradise in the lush foliage on the property and the starry nights when we walked along the road. We appreciated the relative coolness there, above the town of Kailua Kona but just a short drive up the hill. Peter and Libby let us know about a few local hikes, and we enjoyed a great one starting just a 5 minute drive from the property in a preserve. We highly recommend this restful, beautiful haven.
