The Lilikoi Vine is a unique vacation rental experience located in upcountry Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Situated on two acres in the native ohia forest you will feel worlds away from the hustle and bustle of town. Though you will feel you are in the country it will only take you about 10 minutes to get to town. This is a nature lover's paradise. If it is peace you are looking for then this is the destination for you. At 2200 feet above sea level the climate is both comfortable and cool. With night time comes the sound of crickets and the occasional lowing of cattle from nearby Palani Ranch.
This 2 bedroom unit contains a king sized and full sized bed plus a full kitchen with all you need to create your own meals. The decor is warm, artistic, and very unique. A balcony outside the master bedroom looks down to the Balinese garden. In the early morning hours you may be able to spy a honeycreeper sipping nectar from the lehua flowers.
Just recently added for your continued joy: a beautiful Asian- style slate and stone outdoor shower......hidden in the giant bamboo and heliconia- laden secret garden. Now when you come home from the beach you can shower outside!!! Pure Bliss!!
If this isn't relaxing enough for you then there are spa services available from our very own on-site licensed massage therapist. Lomi-lomi, Hawaiian hot stones and other modalities are offered from our on-site Asian treatment room. Finish your treatment with a soak in the hot tub for the ultimate spa experience.
First morning's breakfast is included as our treat to you: muffins, fresh island fruit, yogurt, granola, coffee and tea.
Beaches are a 10 minute drive from our home.
If you need more room or if this is too much room for your group there is another unit available. Please see vrbo listing #358883 If you have a large group traveling together you can rent out the entire building for a total of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and 2 kitchens. Price for entire building is $265 per night.

We love country life and the peacefulness of Kaloko. We enjoy growing our own fruit trees and being surrounded by the blessings of beautiful Hawaiian flowers. We raise Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats on a small scale and make home made chevre cheese.
Never have I seen so many stars at night as from this property. When we lived in town there were too many streetlights so they weren't as visible. Being in the ohia forest is another treat as many endangered birds depend upon the lehua flower to survive. It is possible to see birds that are rarely seen like the honeycreeper. We also have the I'o, or Hawaiian hawk in this area and wild pheasant. I have seen pueo, or owl, many times perching in our trees in the early evening. We also have seen bats flitting about in the evening....
