About Lisen

Des and Lisen were both born in Hawaii, Des' family first having arrived in the early 1800's. We have a coffee farm, Holualoa Kona Coffee Company, about a half a mile from this property where we grow, mill and roast coffee for many farmers in the Kona area. Free tours of our organic farm are offered. Des is a farmer at heart and also enjoys growing chocolate, breadfruit and tropical fruits which you will see surrounding Kona Le'a Guest House as well. In our free time we enjoy open water swimming, stand up paddle boarding, surfing and hiking. We live in the center of the island in the small town of Waimea where our children go to school.

Lisen purchased this house in 1998

Why Lisen chose Holualoa

We love the privacy of living in the rural hills above all the action of Kona--but also enjoy being close to it. It's a perfect spot between two worlds. This elevation has a delightful temperature--never too hot or cold, just right. This home has a special feel to it--a feeling of old Hawaii with all the comforts you enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Huge old trees surrounding the house give a feeling of being in a tree house--tucked away in a tropical wonderland of flowers and fruit trees. A great feeling of privacy with a grand view of the Kona coast.

Second visit. Another excellent experience.

  • 5 of 5
We’re just back from our second stay at what we call the Kona big house. We obviously wouldn’t have booked it again if we hadn’t been totally satisfied with our first visit. Once again, we felt so lucky to have found this place. So we would just reiterate what we said in our first review: “It is a very spacious, clean, comfortable, well-equipped house, with a huge lanai (plus a smaller one). The views down to Kona-K. and the coast are spectacular, and we enjoyed walking around the sprawling gardens with various fruit trees (grapefruit, orange, tangerine, banana, papaya, and more). A great place to watch birds, too. We thought the location up on the slopes was wonderful, and the easy (10 minutes) access to the beach parks at the south end of Ali drive is a real plus. It is also a good launching place for trips to Kealakekua (home of Annie’s Burgers and other treats), Captain Cook and other points south.” Special thanks to Cindy for all her help, local knowledge, and advice, and to Lisen and Des for making their place available.

Blissed out on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to spend 5 weeks this beautiful house. It's well laid out with a fantastic kitchen and has incredible views of the ocean from the lanai. We had another couple visiting for about 2 weeks of our stay and there was plenty of room for everyone. The huge orchards offer a lot of privacy and we spent many happy mornings wandering through the orchards with our young children. The owners of the house were great. They included lots of suggestions for places to explore in a binder in the house and when we contacted them with a few questions, they gave us even more ideas, including good beaches to take younger kids. The location is central much that the Big Island has to offer - Kalekekua Bay, great beaches, Volcanoes National Park and Mauna Kea Observatory. If we had the opportunity to stay in this amazing place, we would jump at it. We made many happy memories during our stay.

A perfect place in paradise

  • 5 of 5
We were absolutely delighted with our 5-week stay at this house. It's in a fabulous retreat from all things tourist, has great views, beautiful grounds (including a huge diversity of tropical fruits that we enjoyed picking), and everything we needed for a terrific vacation. The kitchen is huge, the master suite terrific, and being on the lanai in the early morning was absolutely relaxing. The house is ideally set up for a family with kids, less so for multiple families traveling together. Only thing about the house that I would have changed was to install ceiling fans (there were none) as there's not too much breeze on the hillside. (or perhaps that is just the case in the summer?) At night it's pleasantly cooler up at the higher elevation. All in all, a very lovely stay and I was so delighted to make this house our Kona home.

The pictures do not do it justice

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 spent four wonderful nights in this large and gorgeous house. The ocean view from the spectacular covered deck is much, much better than we expected from the pictures. The home felt like a real home with nice decorative touches all over, and we loved the orchard on the property. We tasted lychee for the first time, had perfect grapefruit, and sampled the mango and other items. Even though the house sits on 5 acres and at 1000 feet elevation, it was still an easy 10 minute drive to civilization and anything you would want. I would recommend this house for everyone, but I would be remiss if I didn't mention one issue. The roosters in the area crow from 2:00 am on. It seemed like a bigger deal the first night for those of us used to the silence of an air-conditioned home. We laughed about it and slept better the last three nights, but the roosters start early in Hawaii. We'd rent this home again in a minute. It was the best of the three homes we rented in Hawaii and one of the best we have ever rented using VRBO.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review! We are delighted that you enjoyed the house and location so much and hope to have you back. We just want to clarify that we don't have roosters or chickens on the property, but they are a fact of life in upcountry Kona. If you hear them, though--they are off in the distance, not up close and personal! We will provide ear plugs in the future for anyone who may wish to block out night sounds. Aloha, Lisen and Des

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5
Two grandparents, two parents, and two grandkids (total age range 1-65) loved this house for a few days in April. I would recommend it and hope to return. Some of my best memories of our vacation will be because of this house - an amazing lanai with a massive asian bed where our 1 year old was safe to crawl, a play house for our five year old, breakfasts on the lanai watching cruise ships or the night snorkeling, secret paths through the fruit trees, watching the lunar eclipse, and as I told Lisen the joy of trying to knock mangoes out of the tree in front. Loved Holualoa itself, the Holuakoa cafe was our farewell dinner and we loved touring the Holualoa Coffee Co. roastery.
No sign of Mssr. rooster.
This was my third time visiting the Kona side and I couldn't recommend a place more. The generosity of the owners to trust visitors with such a beautiful house, filled with such history and Hawaiiana, is inspiring.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5
This property is a home, not just a house or accommodation. It is a pleasure to simply be there lounging on the enormous covered, furnished lanai with the sweeping view of the ocean beyond the green trees. We love the location. It is about 15 minute drive to town, but up the mountain where the air is a little cooler so AC or fans are not needed. There are so many delightful details it is hard to know where to start - a few of my favorites - the covered entry way with the vaulted double doors flagged by palm trees. The fern covered fountain with the tiny fish. The filtered water at the sink. The half-mile winding drive way up from the road to the house. The spacious window seats. The lounging tub. The turbo-powered blender for pina coladas. . . . . it would be a spectacular location for a small dinner party.
The most difficult part of giving this property a good review is we don't want it to be full next time we visit!

Just south of the small artist town of Holualoa, perched on the mountain above Kailua-Kona is a perfect place to enjoy Hawaii at its best. You've got the ideal temperature here where you can quickly escape the heat and crowds of Kailua-Kona. The lovely town of Holualoa is just a little over a mile away for you to wander through and get a feel for this creative artist community. Here some of the finest coffee in the world is grown. Mamalahoa Highway is a historic scenic drive that winds you through Kona coffee farms and tropical plantings. Kailua-Kona and Keauhou are so close (10 minutes!) for all your beaches, groceries, dining and entertainment.
