Kailua-Kona Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 but can accommodate up to 4 with futons.

Wonderful, private and cozy cottage up in the forest of Kaloko ( directly above Kona town!). Situated on 5 acres and 2700 foot elevation, this cottage is surrounded by beautiful ohia trees and is at least 300 feet from the main residence. The owners live further down on the property. Wild chickens and native birds abound.

Kaloko is a special place with cooler weather than you will find down in town. It's nice to retreat up here after a hot day at the beach. Afternoon/evening rain does occur and it provides perfect sleeping weather. Evenings/mornings can be cool, so we recommend light sweaters/socks if you get cold.

We are located on Mount Hualalai right above Kailua Kona. This one bedroom house has a small deck on the front and a larger deck with yard in the back. Nice and secluded. Perfect for the couple wanting a romantic getaway!

10 minutes to the airport, beaches and shops. Hike the mountain trail, birdwatch or just relax on the lanai! Can sleep up to 4 with futons.

We have 2 rental homes on this property.: For those families that need a little more room, please inquire about our other vacation rental #186204! We will give families a discount for renting both cabins.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Carson's Cottage for about a week while we were in Hawaii for our friend's wedding and also to celebrate our anniversary. The cottage was within good distance of the main downtown area and was easy to find. The house is in a secluded area that makes you feel like you are staying in the middle of a tropical jungle! So charming and fun. All of the amenities of home and more were available to us during our stay. We were provided with everything we needed for our days at the beach. Beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkels, towels and a cooler were just some of the items provided so we could have great days at the beach. Washer and dryer were provided so we could do laundry. Upon request, Caroline provided us with some really great suggestions for where to find good food and drinks! Basic toiletries were available in the bathroom and basic spices and condiments were available in the kitchen for when we cooked in the full kitchen. The hot tub on the back deck was a nice way to relax after a long day out exploring the island. The silence at night besides the crickets and birds was a nice change from the noisy hustle and bustle of downtown area. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Carson's Cottage to all of our friends and family if they ever go to the big island! Thank you for making our Hawaii vacation one to remember!

Quiet, beautiful spot

  • 4 of 5

This rental is very quiet (except for wonderful bird sounds in morning) and secluded. We enjoyed hot tub on cool mornings. Plenty cool at night after spending days in warm sun at beaches. Forest surrounding house is great. Perfect size for couple with 7 yr old. Could use a couple more stools for dining table. Bed ok.

We had a fabulous time at Scott and Caroline's place. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Scott was a perfect host, kept right on top of all our requests. The hot tub was great after a day at the .beach! My highest recommendation.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful! Caroline and Scott are very friendly and we enjoyed meeting them. The cabin was the perfect size for just two of us and had all the touches of home. If you prefer to be away from the bustle of the resorts and the noise on Alli Drive, this is the place to stay. The washer and dryer were a huge plus, the bed was comfy, and the privacy can't be beat. This was our 3rd trip to Kona and we would stay here in the future.
