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 oversensitive loveable Dog, Sammy, an old Red Hen, Ruby and a White Homing Pigeon named Pearl. Of course we shouldn't leave out the flocks of Wild Turkeys and Doves, and the variety of wild Pheasant and Birds that insist on visiting every day.

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 flat screen TV with a built-in DVD player 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 2100 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

Just another runaway babyboomer from the west coast, nestling in the big island style of life for the past 14 years . The aloha spirit is alive and abundant in our wonderful country home in Keopu Mauka. My second love (after my wonderful Wayne) are horses (2 on property) and my best example is my pride and joy, Gilda, a Friesian Mare and her Colt who is not so young anymore, born Sept. 13th 2011.

Sidnie purchased this cottage in 2004

Quiet, cozy and comfortable get-away for two!

  • 5 of 5

I probably sound like a broken record given all the other wonderful reviews already written, but you cannot go wrong with this place! It is very peaceful, and Sidnie and Wayne are more than accommodating. You'll have privacy, a beautiful view, and cooler climate than down by the coastline (but still very nice weather). My husband and I loved our morning coffee dates out on the lanai, and we also enjoyed our brief encounters with Bella (had to get our dog fix while on vacation). FYI to divers, this place is around 2,000 ft. above sea level, so keep that in mind if you plan on diving while in Kona. My husband and I just hung out on the coast for an extra couple hours on our dive days, so diving is doable even if you stay here, but I just thought I would mention it. I really can't say enough good things about this cute little cottage - you get the best of both worlds: quiet space to get away from the crowds, but only a 20 minute drive from all the action in Kona. Highly recommend!

All good. Sidnie greeted us late at night in a rainstorm. She had umbrellas for us to go along with her cheery manner. Bella the dog was a bonus. Great views, quiet, and private. Absolutely recommend and would/will return.

The cottage and the location are amazing! Everything is really clean and well kept, not to mention quiet. The sunsets are beautiful and the nights are very cool due to the altitude.

Wayne and Sidnei are wonderful and super sweet.

I highly recommend this for an escape in the Island!!!

Wonderful setting away from the action. At the same time well located for access to nearby activities. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Perfect location for a getaway above it all

  • 5 of 5

This property was just as described and is perfect for those looking for a peaceful, relaxing place to spend their vacation, about 2,000 ft above Kona. While a bit of a challenging drive down into town, we found it well worth the trouble for the wonderful ocean view and serene setting it provides. Sidnie and Wayne were wonderful hosts and were very accommodating to all our needs. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thank You So Much for taking the time to write a review for our little cottage. Yes it is 10 to 15 minute drive into Kona Town but the scenery is beautiful on the drive and we are so pleased that you would stay up in the cottage again. Sidnie and Wayne

cozy and spectacular view, perfect for 2!

  • 5 of 5

we(I and my friend) really love this place.

it's located nearby Kona coffee farm place. (highland) so, quiet, cool temperature(you don't need any cooling device!)

at night you can do star gazing by yourself.

I recommend you you to bring picnic mat.

almost all equiped acommodation.

coffee machine, microwave, hair dryer...

and I thingk Sidnie help you anything you need. She's so helpful and nice!!

there's small pool.

it's in highland so driving is not so easy, and internet access is not so good(even provided wi-fi). but, except these small things, it's perfect place to stay & rest.

one dog (Bella) live here, too.

she's so friendly, someone who doesn't like dogs may have some problems with her.

I want to live here...
