We came to The Kona Mango Farm to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary for 10 days in early October, and found this was a perfect place to relax. The garden of trees and tropical flowers greeted us with color and sweet fragrance daily - a setting and view that took our breath away and filled us with serenity and peace. We fell in love with this place.
This home truly felt like our home; we could put our feet up, get up early, take a nap, laugh and play here. It had everything we needed and everything was easy to find/use to make our stay complete. If you forget anything or need supplies/groceries, there is a wonderful full size grocery store in Captain Cook, less than 15 minutes away.
Loved the Kona Mango Farm and plan to return again. A couple of small but sincerely appreciated items where the full set of cooking knives that were razor sharp -- I love to cook and having the right knife and a sharp one for the task is a great joy! We did barbeque and Tom made sure we had plenty of briquets to make that wonderful too!. We cooked most of our meals at the house, but we did venture out for a couple of meals. Our best meals out in Captain Cook were the vegetarian pizza at Patz and a fabulous butterfish and pork chop dinner at the Manago.
We loved feeding the tropical birds every day, as their colors and sweet songs added so much to our relaxation. I have never enjoyed my time doing dishes as much as I did at the Mango Farm -- the view toward the Captain Cook monument and the Pacific and the garden was magical. The bedroom was well appointed and had everything we needed without being overdone! The place was clean and comfy, towels fresh and fluffy, and loved the solar-wind clothes dryer stretching along the back of the carport -- which we put to good use drying our swimsuits from our daily snorkeling treks to 'Two-Step' which was amazing! We had the good fortune to see and swim with spinner dolphins, sea turtles, spotted a manta ray and moray eel plus tons of brightly colored fish of all colors and and shapes. It was tropical feast for our eyes! Our best memories are the gorgeous sunsets over the farm, waking to bird songs and sipping Tom's lovely coffee on the lanai. It was a wonderful time. Thank you!
