About Yukiko Northon

Aloha! E Komo Mai! Welcome to our Hale! We are the Northon Family, Jeff, Yukiko, and our children Nicholette, Alyssa and Jason. We have worked together to bring this wonderful house together so that it may be used as a retreat, a vacation house and eventually, Jeff and my permanent residence. We hope to share the love we have for our home with you and give you a chance to experience the wonderful island of Hawai’i.

Currently, we are working and staying on the Mainland until the children finish High School.

Why Yukiko Northon chose Kailua Kona

We purchased this house with the intent to move back to Kona after the kids grow up. We have remodeled this house for comfort and beauty and want to share it with those that can appreciate Hawai'i and its inhabitants.

What makes this house unique

This house is located in the Highlands where the air is cooler and crisp in the evenings but still warm by mainland standards. It is a place where the *rush* of being on vacation can be let go and one can truly relax to the sounds of nature. Being among the Locals, it is very different than the 'Resort Style' living, coupled with the Concierge Service, it is by far, the 'best of both worlds'!! This house is a place where dreams are made and realized.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Yukiko, aloha on you! Er had à marvellous time. Best vacation ever...I'm sorry I thought I told you. I could go on and on and on. We'd never had had such à time if it had'nt been for you and your house. I wish you'd come to Sweden some time and borrowed our cottage some time. It's in àn protected area (for animals) and quite lovely. Best of life, yours Anette

A Relaxing Stay at the Green House

  • 5 of 5
I loved my stay at the Kona Green House for so many reasons! First of all, the location was perfect. We arrived in Kona on one of their most humid days in July (even the locals were complaining about the humidity!) and were happily surprised to find how much cooler it is above Kona at the Green House- only 10-15 minutes from town, yet many degrees cooler. That (and the very comfortable beds) made sleeping SO much easier each night. Since we were above Kona, we were close to Mamalohoa Hwy, making our trips out to Holualoa (art galleries and Holuakoa Garden Cafe, home of killer Kona Coffee Creme Brulee!) and Honaunau (Historic park, sea turtles, and great snorkling) easier. Every morning we were awakened to the most delightful sounds of island birds, as if we were in our own tropical rain forest! The owner made sure that her guests were well taken care of, from the concierge service (which we used for airport pick up and drop off) to having extra beach towels, coolers, and boogie boards available. The home was clean and beautifully maintained. The kitchen was well-organized and each room nicely decorated with plenty of space to unpack and settle in for awhile. I was really grateful to be able to use the washing machine, dryer, and wifi and really loved the big screen tv! I truly felt at home. If we had more time, we would have made good use of the barbecue and enjoyed some meals out on the patio. I have already recommended The Green House to several friends who are thinking of traveling to the Big Island, and I can't wait to visit again!

Kona Greenhouse

  • 5 of 5
Kona Greenhouse is a beautiful, clean, wonderfully relaxing place to stay! The house had all the amenities necessary and it was well organized and easy to find what we needed. One of the great perks is its location! Just a short drive (10-15 min.) up the mountain from town and yet always 5-10 degrees cooler than the town down below! It made for a good night's sleep on the super comfy beds! I can't wait to go back and will recommend this fabulous house to all my friends and relatives planning a trip to the Big Island!

Excellent feel at home visit

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful home. Clean, spacious and private. You get the feeling of living as a local. The location is high enough up the hill to be cool in the evening for good sleeping. The location is perfect. Near enough to the airport and Costco for gas & groceries and the perfect jumping off point for daily excursions to the Harbour, old airport, and no city traffic to delay your morning starts for the excellent dives sites up north like Puako & Mahu Kona.

Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5
This is a great place to go for longer vacations especially; while there is not a service that comes in while you're out to triangle-fold your toilet paper rolls, it is a comfortable place to stay on the big island that is away from other tourists.

The beds are rejuvenating, the living room open and welcoming. You are in Hawaii so tropical floral patterns are prolific; there is no escape from them here but they are at least nice colors.

The area in the backyard under the trees has an unfortunate population of mosquitoes supported by water that collects in some bromeliad plants closeby. There is a wooden bench of sorts to sit on that would otherwise be adequate however I would not suggest it! The rest of the backyard is fine, though.

Owner's Response: Thank you Nic, for your review! We are glad you had a great time at the Greenhouse. I will get with my gardener on the mosquito population as it does ebb and flow with the rains and the bromeliads do collect water. Thank you for the heads up! We welcome you to come back to the Greenhouse again anytime!

Nice house and location

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the green house and liked the quiet neighbourhood. The house was clean and comfortable. Another chair for the living room would be a nice addition. The kitchen was well stocked as well. I love all the beautiful plants and flowers in the yard. It was nice to have a barbecue and we enjoyed the lanai.

Everything was PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
I loved this place. I just moved to the Big Island and needed a place to call "home" while my other rental was ready for occupancy. Here's what I LOVED: The owner has thought of everything to make your stay feel both like a vacation in a hotel and like a home. It comes with a functional office area with wifi, a fantastic TV in the living room, a great kitchen setup, and comfortable bedrooms. The sunset and ocean views are fantastic. Well supplied throughout, this is one of most well-kept vacation homes I've ever stayed in. Big plus was that is dog-friendly! My and my pooch Ella hope to come back again soon!

There are so many wonderful adventures that you can have here in Hawai’i, that it would be difficult to list them all, however, here are a few that we have enjoyed.

1) Dolphin Quest: Take the time to learn all about the dolphins and interact with them. It is fantastic to be able to touch them and learn about them.

2) Kohala Kayak and SUP: Sean, of Kohala Kayak is a wonderful guide and teacher of Stand Up Paddle. He also does Kayak trips and other water activities. He is knowledgeable about the area and is a very patient teacher.

3) ZipLine: This is quite the adventure and very fun.

4) Mauna Kea Observatories: This is a fantastic day trip. Be sure to take the time to adjust to the elevation at the store for at least an hour before continuing up to the Observatory. There are tours available if you do not want to go up yourself.

5) Paleaku Peace Garden: A wonderful place for looking at different plants and scenery. They have a garden representation of the Milky Way, which is pretty cool.

6) Akatsuka Orchid Gardens: This place has an *amazing* collection/display of orchids for sale and display. It’s on the Hilo side of the Island.

7) Hawai’i Tropical Botanical Garden: Located off of Hwy 19 near the Hamakua Coast. The drive going to the garden is also quite beautiful.

Well, there are lots more adventures available, but, half the fun is finding them!

You may also contact Kona Concierge to book and plan other available adventures of your choosing.
