Kona Coast House Rental Photos and Description

Large Open Floor Plan - Sleeps 4

Guest Cottage.

Located above Kailua Kona, on the slopes of Hualalai, this unique 1200 sq foot cottage

is just the place to enjoy your Big Island adventure.

Conveniently located just minutes from Kona Airport, Costco, and Kailua Kona Town, you won't miss a beat. Great activities, beaches and dining located just 5 - 6 miles away.

Cool elevation and lush foliage surround you in this peaceful

3 acre property. It is not unusual that the temperature is 15 degrees cooler than Kailua Kona. During the cooler season , enjoy the warmth of your own electric fireplace with a simple click of the remote.

Nature lovers will enjoy the abundant variety of plants and birds that surround the area. Mornings greet you with clean crisp air that is not affected by the VOG that sometimes is seen in town.

Kona has a great open market that offers a variety of exotic fresh fruits and vegetables, and traditional ones as well, that are grown locally, and at a fraction of the price found in the grocery stores.

For our friends with limited mobility, the single level cottage is perfect. Park in front of your front door and enter the cottage. No parking lots or parking fees.

The cottage design is simple and open. A king sized bed and a queen sized bed will provide lots of room for a couple or a family. Keywords: Guest House/ Cottage, 1200 sq feet, Cool, Mountain Location

Quaint Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our stay. There were four of us and everything worked out perfectly. There was coffee and candy to greet us and the owners made us feel right at home. Everything was clean and nice. We had everything that we needed for cooking and relaxing. I would highly suggest this rental!

Huge 1-room cottage way up in the hills

  • 5 of 5

Nicely private cottage, although the owners Pete and Libby are a quick walk away (and are quick to come when you need something). It's spacious and roomy, extremely clean and well-equipped. Since we use a clothes line at home, we didn't mind doing so here, and our shirts dried really fast. As other reviews have said, it's located well up in the hills over Kona, about a 10 to 15-minute drive once you know the way, which was fine with us. To find it at night, you have to follow the directions carefully and look for their No Trespassing sign. If you don't want to be squeezed in with other tourists, this is the spot.

Everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very generous for the 2 of us, with each of us having our own bed. We enjoyed the snorkeling gear, beach mats, umbrella, chairs, etc. The house had all the amenities we could want. Just be sure to turn a hard right when you enter the property, even though the sign says no trespassing! Very delightful stay. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Terrific Cottage-Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and property were absolutely wonderful. The unit is fully equipped with boogey boards, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, cooler, toiletries, etc. All you need are the groceries. The area is well treed acreages, only minutes to town, beaches and airport, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. The internet and TV worked very well. Libby and Peter were very friendly--great hosts. We came in on a late flight, so I used Google Earth to scout the route before we left home. Libby's directions were spot on, but the entrance off the street is obscured by trees and a little hard to pick out in the dark. We loved not having to look for a parking spot or climb stairs. We came "home" early a few days to enjoy the yard and refreshing cooler temperatures. Stayed 2 weeks. We highly recommend this unit and hope to return soon.

Big Island

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here many times, as we live on island. This cottage is simply extremely comfortable, with everything provided.

And it's close to the best beaches, and Costco, and Kona, an ideal location for a beach vacation.

It is accurately described and photographed ... it is immaculate and well-maintained ... the hosts, Peter and Libby, are great people, very nice ...

We highly recommend it!
