Located above the Kona coast line in Kona Heavens our unit (650sqft) offers comfortable elegance surrounded by our fruit orchard, palm trees, fragrant and exquisite tropical flowers. Enjoy the spectacular coast line panorama of North Kona from your unit, lanai or from the pool. Sleep soundly as cool mountain breezes gently rustle the palms and trees. Begin your day with listening to our many birds as morning slowly awakens along the coast line.
After arriving at the airport on Big Island a short 8 minute drive will bring you to our luxurious property in KONA HEAVENS. The elevation of 1000 ft (300m) is perfect for comfortable, temperate and relaxing nights. Stepping out into the pool area you have landed. Now it's time to enjoy the sunsets, lay back and let go!
Big Island is yours!!! Uncountable adventures await the curious.
When you are ready pack a lunch and explore. It takes only a 12 to 40 minute drive to reach any of the 10 different, beautiful beaches to the north. Feel free to take along our beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, beach towels and beach mats.
If you would like, plan your day with the help from your hosts. Only a short drive away to the south you can explore Big Island favorites: Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (The Place of Refuge) National Historic Park and Kahalu'u Beach Park (best snorkel beach). At Kealakekua Bay rent a kayak and take along our snorkel gear to encounter vibrantly colored tropical Hawaiian fish, sea turtles (Honu) and spinner dolphins while exploring the crystal blue waters near the Captain Cook Monument.
Enjoy a hike at Volcanoes National Park or visit the summit of Mauna Kea.
Hungry after a day of fun and new experiences?
Although there are many excellent restaurants in Kailua Kona (5 minutes from here) you might like to stay in, visit one of the Big Islands farmers markets for island fresh produces and prepare your own BBQ in our spacious pool area. Also our unit kitchenette is equipped with all you need for a private gourmet meal.
Before retiring relax to a beautiful sunset or a spectacular star filled sky in our outdoor hot tub!
Come and enjoy!!!

We are Ursula and Roland and moved to Kona not long ago from Switzerland. Ursula is retired teacher and Roland was a professional classical musician. After exploring many places of the world and all the Hawaiian Islands the decision was made to settle here in Kona Heavens.
ursula hesse purchased this apartment in 2011
We bought our property with you in mind. The peaceful beauty and serenity of our home will give you the vacation you deserve. Our Suites provide an atmosphere of understated elegance with ocean and garden views. So don’t hesitate! Our beautiful house and we both are waiting to welcome you to share our Aloha.
Our sun drenched Kona coast is truly a vacationer’s paradise! This is THE place for outdoor activities all year ! Be adventurous, go explore! In the winter months you can go to Maune Kea and even play in the snow, and later on drive down and frolic in the ocean! Where else in the world ist that possible? After a day of tropical island adventures you will come back to your place in Kona Heavens and look forward to swim in our saline pool and a relaxing soak in the hottub. This is your time to be lazy, watch the sunset and enjoy tranquility.
We stayed at Heleconia for the third time. Again we enjoyed the location, the perfect sunsets, the gorgeous garden, the helpful hosts, their magnificent music,and the spacious studio. Certainly there are a lot of rental places in the area, but here you are treated like a family guest. None of the other comments is exagerated.
Ursula and Roland have created two wonderful, private, immaculately clean vacation apartments on the ground level of their beautiful home, located on a hill with an expansive view of the Kailua-Kona area. The classical chamber music they play in their living room upstairs is an added bonus, as are their friendly, engaging stories of their lives virtually around the world. They couldn't have been kinder during our stay--including fruit smoothies from their large deck at sunset with tropical fruits grown on their own property. Walking their 1-acre is a botanical garden delight, knowledgeably attended by the two of them. The quiet neighborhood is great for walking, though you'll definitely need a car to get to Big Island beaches and towns. We typically had the pool to ourselves whenever we chose. The photos and reviews are accurate. This is an unforgettable vacation opportunity.
The apartment is immaculate and sits on a property that you can tell is well cared for. We enjoyed retreating to a neighborhood environment away from the bustle of Kona at the end of a busy day of snorkeling or diving. Ursula and Roland are just wonderful hosts who immediately make you feel like friends. There is the added bonus of fresh avocados, bananas, and papayas from their lovely garden.
After reading all the previous reviews, there is not much to add except to say that they are
all accurate. The pictures don't do it justice as things have grown a lot and it is like a botanical garden. I took many pictures of the great variety of flowers that surround the
property. Our hosts were magnificent and we thank them so much for adding to our
enjoyment of the great day trips we made to the various places of interest. I don't know
how our trip could have been better.
We stayed here with our son. It was agreat place and great people. We would highly recommend it. Very clean and everything you need for cooking your own meal to going to the beach. We had an awesome time thank you to Roland and Ursella.
We stayed at this place for 5 days and everything was perfect. Everything was included (BBQ, soaps, detergents beach essentials such as body-surf boards, beach chairs, bags, towels and much more) which was extremely convenient. The place was very clean and modern. The outside shower was a treat and the sunset was amazing (from outside). The kids greatly enjoyed the pool and the spa. The hosts were absolutely fantastic: exceptionally welcoming, always ready to help and make our stay the best possible. The extra attentions were greatly appreciated, like the smoothies one evening and the fresh fruits and nuts shared with us. The place is conveniently very close to two highways which gave us rapid access to various areas. The trip advising provided by the host was truly priceless!!! Indeed our host would spend almost an hour every day, explaining in detail where she recommended we go, how and when. And every day we realized that she was right. The garden was splendid. At night, the place was very quiet. We would go back any time and give it our strongest recommendation!
