About Albert Holt

Albert and Linda Holt moved to the Big Island after deciding they needed something to do after working in Silicon Valley for the past 30 years. A Kona Coffee farm seemed to be just the ticket. Having had vacation rentals in Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas they were excited about being able to share the Kona Coffee farming experience, and the Big Island Hawaii experience with others, so they built a guest residence just for that purpose. Pictured here with the very first roasted and bagged coffee from our first year (2007) crop.

Albert Holt purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Albert Holt chose Kona Coast

Being away from the resorts and tourist hustle and bustle, yet close enough to everything in order to be able to experience the true Hawaii and Aloha.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Panoramic ocean views, 1400 feet above sea level where the air is clean and cool, wild turkeys and chickens, and the occasional pig wandering the property, night time nature sounds, calm no traffic lifestyle and plenty of property to stretch out in.

Wonderful location and incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

The one bedroom apt. was wonderful! It is on a steep hillside, which is what makes the view so amazing, so getting down to the apartment could be a challenge if you have any mobility issues. Everything was just as described and neat and clean. The location is very private and Al was easy to contact with any questions. Would definitely recommend.

Secluded, Amazing views, but near to shoping

  • 4 of 5

The downstairs apartment is perfect for a couple, especially for a couple with a canine companion.

The view has to be the starting place in a review of this apartment. It's like you are on the space station looking out at the curvature of the earth. Well, a little closer than that, but you get the idea. Sunset, Kona, and Ocean - 180 degrees. It doesn't get much better.

The apartment has a great king size bed, and a fenced backyard - so you can responsibly leave your canine on the lanai while you make your three hour excursions to Kona.

Our border collie enjoyed walks down the farm (it is down) and we both managed the up-hill return. Great exercise!

The outdoor covered lanai was a great place to eat dinner and watch sunsets. Breakfast was great there as well.

The only negatives:

If you want to be within walking distance of the beaches, not this place.

If you want to walk to a restaurant - not this place.

If you like to cook - well, it's pretty bare bones.

But other than the above, it is amazing!

Lush, scenic and Tropical

  • 5 of 5

Al’s Kona Coffee House was a serene and beautiful “away from it all” destination and we loved just being there. Turkeys, mangos, papaya, oranges and grapefruit all around. Not to mention being right in the middle of a real Kona coffee plantation. The view of Kona is fantastic (especially at night).

It is off the beaten path so if you want bell hops and valet parking this isn’t your place (perhaps the Ritz Carlton?). If you want a memorable and authentic Big island experience, it is. The facility has everything you need and the outside kitchen/dining area adds to the ‘away from it all’ charm.

Two thumbs up!

Quiet spacious and lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment with gorgeous views and wonderful high ceilings and large sliding glass doors. Definitely print out the directions and use maps app if you're trying to find this for the first time at night. That was challenging! No grocery stores super close so stock up before you arrive if you get in late. Well kept and super quiet location. Great for relaxation and getting away from tourist crowds.
