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!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our four-night stay in the one-bedroom cottage on Viktoriya's and Michael's small chocolate and coffee farm on a hillside overlooking Kealakekua Bay. The cottage is probably best described as rustic chic, but had all of the amenities we would have wanted in a gorgeous location graciously hosted by long-time residents of this somewhat rural setting outside of the normal tourist haunts of Kona. The location is down a steep winding road, but is all the more private and secure because of that. The cottage was built as a honeymoon cottage, and is perfect for a couple, though it could accommodate a small child or two on the pullout couch. The kitchen is workable. The view is spectacular. There is great grocery shopping and some restaurants and amenities nearby, and it is close to the trailhead for the hike to the Captain Cook monument and spectacular snorkeling there. Not a fancy or particularly updated place, but perfectly suited for a peaceful stay in a gorgeous place. We would book again in a heartbeat.
Very relaxing location, quiet, very attentive hosts. Highly recommended.
My wife and I were very pleased with our week-long stay in the cottage. Mike and Vika were outstanding and went out of their way to make sure that we had all that we needed and that we were comfortable. They gave us tips on what to see and what to do in the area. They provided us with fresh fruit and eggs - what a treat! The cottage is secluded so you have privacy yet it is close to restaurants and a shopping area. The cottage is a good jumping off place to explore the island. The cottage was furnished with everything we needed and more. We could not be happier with our stay and have already recommended it to our friends and children. We will stay there if and when we return to the Big Island.
Vika and Mike are most gracious hosts, and the Honeymoon cottage is a cozy, comfortable and well equipped get-away for two. We enjoyed the seclusion and peacefulness of the cottage surrounded by lush vegetation and the sounds of birds. We stayed for 9 nights and enjoyed every moment. Fantastic snorkeling just minutes away. Close to Kona, yet far enough away to get away from the crowds. This is a great location to have as home base to explore the rest of the island. Everything supplied in the full kitchen, yet we ate out a little more than expected. Mike and Vika, we enjoyed the evening we had with Poke, wine and beer. We also enjoyed the tour of your farm, the fresh eggs and fruit. Highly recommended!! We hope to return some day. Mahalo ! Wendy and Wade
Viktoriya's Kealakekua Bay vacation home is a great spot for exploring Hawaii's coffee country and western coast. Vika and Mike met us when we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed. They recommended some nearby attractions and invited us to stop by their home (just down the hill) if we had any requests or questions. The vacation home has views of the bay, a nice outdoor eating area, and friendly geckos. The landscaping is beautiful and Vika provided delicious fresh fruit and eggs. I'm glad we chose this spot to end our Hawaii vacation.
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.
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!
