Set back far from the road on five acres of tropical greenery, chocolate and fruit trees--you will enjoy strolling around the property picking fruit, taking pictures of flowers. Three bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. Gourmet kitchen fully stocked for all your cooking needs. Office, lanai and dining room with a great view. Piano room. Everything you need (WiFi, Cable TV, IPOD connected stereo system, washer, dryer) and more is here for your stay. The perfect temperature at this elevation in the hills above Kona. Single older woman who works away from home in lives on property in separate apartment, very low key, gone much of the time--you will hardly know she is there.
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.
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.
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.
