Overview

About the property

Holualoa Cottage Studio minutes to Downtown Kona and Beaches

Lovely Mauka Studio Cottage on 5 Acre Horse Property yet minutes to downtown Kailua-Kona and Beaches.

This slice of Hawaiian Heaven is located on the temperate side of Hualalai Mountain, home to the finest coffee in the world, Kona Coffee. The beautiful vistas from our property over look our pastures with grazing Calves and Horses, the neighboring Coffee Farms and on to the Beautiful Kona Coastline and Ocean Horizon views that will amaze you with incredible Sunsets. The three stall Cedar Barn is home to Gilda, our Friesian mare and her 1/2 Arabian Colt, Kuu Ipo. There is also one wonderful loveable Dog, Bella and a White Homing Pigeon named Pearl Jam. Of course we shouldn't leave out the flocks of Wild Turkeys, Parrots, Franklins, Doves, and the variety of wild Pheasant and Birds that insist on visiting every day. Your nights will have the pleasant sounds of a variety of frogs.

The Cottage is located on the quiet side of the main house and pool with commanding Coastline and Ocean Views of its own. We are a non-smoking property. The cozy studio includes a small refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, dishes and utensils. There is also a large flat screen TV and WiFi.

We are located approximately 2.5 miles from the Wonderful Quaint Artist Community of Holualoa Town, an Historic small town overlooking Kailua-Kona. This charming old Hawaiian Town boasts several beautiful local Artist Galleries, an acclaimed Restaurant, a small General Store, a country Post Office, Library, School, Churches and lots of old style Coffee Shack buildings. Of course there is a great Coffee House with Fresh Baked Goodies to enjoy as you stroll the Galleries. Kailua-Kona, beaches, restaurants and shopping are just minutes down the mountain.

Our home sits approximately 2200 feet above downtown Kailua-Kona. A bit cooler than sea level the nights are perfect for sleeping and the days perfect for activities. Our day time temperatures rarely exceed 85 degrees even in Summer.

Come experience a side of Hawaii that most people never get to see, yet so close to Kona, Shopping and all beach activities. Come enjoy our Country Hospitality smothered in Aloha but please understand this is a no tobacco smoking property. Mahalo!

About Sidnie

The aloha spirit is alive and abundant in our wonderful country home in Keopu Mauka.

Well appointed, cozy cottage in idyllic setting with distant ocean views

  • 5 of 5

Sidnie is a gracious, welcoming hostess and the cottage was clean and had all the essentials of a home base on the Big Island. I came in on an evening flight and hadn't eaten all day. Sidnie graciously encouraged me to grab a bite before driving up the mountain. I admit it was a little intimidating the first time in the dark but Sidnie had the lights on in the barn to let me know I had arrived. I quickly became accustomed to the winding, scenic, historic road to Holuloa and enjoyed the views afforded by the elevation.

I was there in early June and the temperatures were pleasant for sleeping. There isn't a kitchen but cottage is equipped with a microwave, small refrigerator and coffee pot.

I recommend you drive the short distance to the town of Holualoa to shop the art galleries and have a delicious lunch or dinner. It is also worth the short drive from there to Donkey Balls for samples of chocolate covered macadamias and a cup of delicious Kona coffee.

If you want to stay in the congestion of town and be in the thick of things this is not for you. But if you want an affordable getaway that is close enough to Kailua Kona to be within minutes of beautiful beaches, snorkeling, shopping and restaurants give this a try.

Beautiful and Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was by far our most peaceful lodging in Hawai'i, among three different islands and four different locations. The elevation near 2000' above Kona made it much cooler day and night, which for us from the Seattle area, made for much better sleeping. The one downside is that the unheated pool was a bit chilly, but we'll take that. The house and cottage are very private, with no major views of neighbors, yet still close enough to major Kona attractions (as well as the Saddle Road/Mauna Kea). The owners Sidnie and Wayne were very accommodating, allowing us to arrive early and even leave slightly late, and even provided a complimentary bottle of wine (with glasses) on our porch. We're not drinkers so we didn't partake, but appreciate the gesture! The property was very peaceful, with minimal noise and much less rooster alarm clocks than everywhere else we stayed. The grounds are lovely, with a great view of the sunset from our cottage and the pool. The interior of the cottage was just as nice as pictured, nicely decorated and appointed, with lots of storage. The TV was by far the biggest we had among our four lodgings. The bed was very comfortable, too. The only thing we could have wished for - if we had been staying longer - were laundry facilities and perhaps a little more kitchen amenities (small sink and stove, maybe a toaster). However, neither of those are very feasible in this size cottage, and not necessary for a short stay. And, this cottage is still way nicer than any hotel room I saw at twice the price. We really enjoyed our stay, and will definitely consider this wonderful cottage again when we return to the Big Island in the future.

Peaceful mountainside retreat

  • 5 of 5

Words really can't do the Rubber Slipper Ranch justice. Sidnie is a wonderful host, very easy to communicate with before arrival, and even friendlier in person. Bella the four legged host is just a treat. We stayed 4 nights and loved it. Very comfy bed, fresh mountain air, great view on the deck for breakfast, and frog songs take you to sleep at night. We just couldn't get enough of the delicious Kona coffee Sidnie provided. 100% recommend and we would stay here again! Mahalo!

Peaceful and immaculate

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful cottage in a peaceful, yet convenient location. Sidnie is a charming hostess, and the attention to detail in this great cottage did not disappoint! The cottage is as large as any decent sized hotel room, and with the small fridge, microwave, and coffee maker we had all we needed for a fabulous stay. We couldn't believe how clean it was – it's obviously very important to the homeowners to create a clean and welcoming escape for their guests. The bed is one of the most comfortable vacation beds we have ever slept in.

We loved being able to have the windows open and the constant breeze keep the cottage so pleasant. At night, listening to the frogs and the birds lulling us to sleep was better than any nature CD we could have brought with us. It was fun to see the horses and the cows, but the big friendly dog made us smile every time. With our rental car, we were able to get to any location we wanted easily.

Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay on our vacation!

Nice and quiet place within reach of the Kona coast.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife really enjoyed our stay here. The area is absolutely wonderful/peaceful and the accommodations were excellent. Sidnie and Wayne were outstanding hosts, and Bella was there to greet us when we would leave for our morning excursions or when we would arrive back in the evening. There are a few windy roads up from the Kona coast to get there, but it was well worth it, and if we are in Kona again we will definitely be checking availability.
