A Slice of Heaven!
First let me say that the pictures are accurate. One thing the pictures cannot relate to you is the feeling of home. We are very particular and have high standards and this home met and exceeded our expectations. From the moment we opened the door, we saw a wall of glass that overlooked the Pacific Ocean. Breathtaking to say the least! The home is impeccably clean with wonderful floor plan that is open and spacious. The house is very tastefully furnished and all the amenities we have at our home are right here thanks to Trudy’s detailed mind. Dave and Trudy actually lived in this home first before moving to the other house on the property and their high standards are reflected in this renovated rental home. Being 1,500 ft. above sea level provides a wonderful temperate climate as it is always 5 – 8 degrees cooler during the day with a light breeze and lower humidity which was always a welcome relief when coming back home after a day on a hot beach. We did most of our dinners at the house since everything we needed was at our fingertips. The Weber BBQ was great and provided us with some of our best dinners as we sat on the lanai and took in the breathtaking sunsets. The mornings were our favorite time; sitting on the lanai and having our morning coffee (provided by the best Kona Coffee farm on the Island) and enjoying the peaceful view of the ocean, allowing us to have the quite time we were longing for during our stay. The pool you see in the pictures is perfect. There are jets in the pool, so if you prefer a real workout, you can swim against the current. The view from the pool is incredible. We spent many afternoons there enjoying a simple and non-rushed atmosphere, able to totally relax.
Dave and Trudy were wonderful and gave us assistance but always respected our privacy. Dave is an enthusiastic and charismatic man who has invested much time and energy building the Kona coffee farm business. He took time from his busy day managing the coffee farm and gave us a personal guided tour. Dave went through the entire process of the Kona coffee development. He is there to not only give you a perspective but also to teach you the many aspects of coffee farming. His work is reflected by all the awards their farm has received for having the best Kona coffee in cupping contests. Trudy is a warm and kind soul which reflects outward when you meet her. She is a gracious hostess and her love and hard work on the coffee farm are apparent by her personal attention and
