Our home is located on the Big Island of Hawaii about 16 miles south on HWY 11 from Kailua-Kona town. The road to the house is a somewhat graded/paved single lane road with turnouts and no street lights. The house is approximately 1 mile up the road and located mauka (uphill) off the road with a concrete parking pad in front of the elevated house. A rental car will be okay for the road provided the vehicle is driven with care. The house is 950 square feet with 2 bedrooms and a 3/4 bath (no tub). As can be seen in the photos, the kitchen, living room, and dining area are an open floor plan. The front lanai (deck) faces the southwest expansive ocean view as do the sliding glass doors for the living and dining rooms. All other rooms have views of the many producing coffee trees on the 5 acre farm. Our coffee is picked and sold to Greenwell Farms in Captain Cook. There are tours available at the facility. There are also producing (depending on the season) Papaya, Avacado, Loquat, Mulberry, and Banana trees. Feel free to pick the ripe fruit. The stove and water heater heater are run on propane. The fresh water-shower, all faucets, and toilet are supplied with roof rainwater into above ground catchment tanks, so water conservation is very important. (there is drinking water supplied for your stay). We may be in Hawaii but we still have dry seasons. Because the house is our second home the kitchen is well supplemented with various condiments, dishware, cooking and baking ware. Please note there is no smoking in the house or lanais. The house is located in a semi-tropical area and there are various critters on the property that can be encountered. There is a 3 night minimun stay with no refund once the reservation is confirmed.
In conclusion we hope you enjoy our house with fabulous oceans views, sunsets, crickets, chiriping birds and geckos, roosters, hens and most of all, lack of city noise.

We are semi-retired and enjoy upgrading small homes, traveling, and working in our giant 5 acre yard/coffee farm.
After spending 7 straight weeks of upgrading the house we became attached and decided to keep the property. The producing coffee farm with the various tropical plants, ocean view, and fruit was also a big influence on keeping the place for a home.
Picking the fresh fruit, ocean view sunsets ( some with a green flash), working in the field, close proximity to snorkeling and picnicing, and the warm temperate climate.
