We built this cottage few years ago with lots of recycling materials, carefully sorted and crafted . We used old red wood water tank boards for trims, recycled windows and doors.
We chose oriental decor, using light colors on walls , dark woods and Japanese collectibles (kimonos, dishes, bowls and plates, tea cups e.t.c.)

Aloha, Vika and Mike
Keywords: tropical, private, safe, centrally located
Mike and Vika Hansen moved here 13 years ago with a dream of having a little Kona coffee and Cacao orchards and some vacation homes.
finally the dream has become reality, we are growing coffee,cacao, fruits and veggies, raising chickens,planting landscaping, working hard...
Viktoriya purchased this cottage in 1999
We loved the climate, the privacy and the area. Fresh produce year around, beautiful climate to grow food!
The best snorkel and diving.
Local crafts and arts.
Enjoy drinking our own Estate grown Kona coffee, hiking around our orchard property, centrally located near the volcano park or the beaches on the west side, our property provides you with a safe central location to see the Big Island!
One of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii was staying in this unique and quiet cottage at Mike and Vika's farm.
We only wished we could have stayed longer than 3 days to experience more of the many amazing things the Big Island offers.
Mike gave us a tour of their immediate property (a personal botanical garden, as well as a working coffee and cocoa farm) which included notes on the history of this region, and his own personal experiences carving out this life on the side of a volcano.
The cottage sits in a secluded plantation on the side of a mountain. Mike and Vika were wonderful hosts, explaining the plants, harvesting and processing, sharing the produce, and answering any questions we had. All of the gardens and landscaping were created by them.
The cottage is one of a kind using repurposed materials, an ecological feature we appreciate. We named the geckoes and cheered them on as they endeavored to eliminate the bugs that found their way into the house.
There are many beautiful, interesting birds to entertain you with their varied calls and antics, from the break of day 'til dark.
Lovely location off of Napo'opo'o Road, but easy access to Keakalekua Bay, Place of Refuge, 2-step snorkelling, the Painted Church, a great cafe (Kona Coffee Shop & Bakery), etc. 5 minutes to small supermarket (Choice Mart).
The Honeymoon Cottage suited us perfectly, and Mike and Vika provided all of the little details to make living there easy, like kitchen spices, cooking oil, vinegar, etc. They are wonderful hosts, and you can have as much visiting - or not - as you want.
Short 25 minute drive into Kailua-Kona or 40 minutes to the airport. Perfect for easy access, but definitely far enough to feel like you're in a whole different world. Highly recommended.
We came in the evening.
In the morning we woke up by the songs of all the birds.
We had breakfast outside and looked at the beautiful flowers and trees of this paradise!
Mike and Viktoriya were very nice and we were pleased to stay at their property.
When we will come back to Hawai we want to stay here again.
We enjoyed the fresh organic fruit which we got from Mike and Viktoriya.
We allso washed our laundry in their washing machine.
Within 10 minutes drive we were at Kealakekua Bay where we enjoyed swiming with the Dolphins.
Forever in our hearts!!!
Vika and Mike were warm and wonderful hosts sharing this most beautiful and welcoming of places. The 1 bedroom cottage (honeymoon place) was ideal for our honeymoon as was the covered veranda with a supplied grill where we cooked all meals but one. Nice view of Kealakekua Bay, blooming flowers everywhere, fruit and coffee trees, friendly geckos, vocal birds, happy dogs, and supplied beach toys; What more could an old Alaska/Oregon couple ask for? Almost forgot the fresh eggs from on property chickens as well the fresh fruit and fresh roasted coffee from on property trees. We will never consider a resort type vacation on the Big Island again. We were so sad to leave but are already starting to plan a return trip with my wife's sister and her husband for a 2 week stay in the 2 bedroom unit. One week is not enough for this island or this place.
Mahalo bookoo Vika and Mike from Liz and Mike
This rental is one of my all time favorites. Tiki Bar to sit outside at for hours listening to birds and viewing the ocean from a distance (one day I saw a whale breach). The vegetation surrounding the cottage is lush and beautiful. Flowers abound. Plenty of room to walk(tho steep) with no cars. Mike and Vika will help you with what you need and they delivered fruit to our door a number of times . Close to the best snorkeling on the island. We would go back again without hesitation.
Cottage is located in midst of a working Kona Coffee Farm and also grows chocolate. See the steps of the process, see the coffee and the chocolate growing on the trees!
