About the property

This Relaxing, Elegant And Cool Mountain Cottage Awaits You!

The perfect, peaceful getaway for those on a honeymoon or looking for a relaxing, romantic experience. This warm, welcoming, newly-built and finely crafted studio cottage provides modern comfort while retaining the spirit of old Hawaii. This mountain paradise is surrounded by native Hawaiian ohia and pine trees. The Cottage at Ohia Place is situated in North Kona, at a cool 1600' elevation on Mount Hualalai.

The cottage is close proximity to Kailua Kona village, shopping, restaurants, beaches, activities, the harbor, hiking trails and upcountry golf courses. The airport is 15 minutes away.

The accommodation features open beam wood ceilings, ohia hardwood floors, mahogany and granite kitchen, brand-new queen -sized bed (with a Memory Foam topper), large slate shower, fully equipped kitchen with new appliances and a lovely lanai that enhances the inside/outside lifestyle of Hawaii.

The cottage is 720 sq feet under roof, including the lanai.

Your host will provide you with details about the many island activities, tours, sight-seeing, beaches and cultural experiences as well as shopping and restaurants, all within an easy driving distance from your home.

Born and raised in Kona, the host's father was one of the founders of the sports fishing business in Kona in the early 50s; she and her family remain closely involved with the fishing community. She has spent her professional life welcoming guests and connecting them to the rich traditions of the islands. We love the island of Hawaii: the vastness, the colorful and unique local customs, the sunshine and sunsets of the Kona Coast, and the hunting and fishing traditions of the Big Island.

A vintage picnic basket is available for your pleasure. If you're headed out to explore the island. You are welcome to use a cold bag for shopping, cooler, beach chairs and towels.

This is a place you will call home... will want to remember... and will return to.

Beautiful, peaceful spot

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for our five year anniversary trip to the Big Island. Gale has really thought of everything and she provided everything we needed, including homemade banana bread and some fresh fruit as a welcome. We spent every morning on the lanai drinking coffee and we watched a few sunsets as well. It was perfect to be away from the bustle of downtown Kona and we would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What more can be said about Gale's place that hasn't been said already? She's a wonderful host who makes sure that you're settled in and finding everything that you need on the island. We had some severe rain during our stay and she even called us to make sure we were okay during the storm. Sweet Sadie checked in on us every morning while we ate breakfast on the lanai. And of course... the banana bread.. the BEST banana bread! Thank you, Gale, for sharing the cottage with us during our first trip to the Big Island.

Enchanting, secluded, 5 star cottage that is centrally located but feels a world away.

  • 5 of 5

Host Gale Parker has built an enchanted cabin-cottage that is impeccably constructed, decorated and maintained. The surrounding grounds are absolutely lovely. Guests are serenaded by birds all day and tiny frogs in chorus at night. Watch the sun set over the ocean from the lanai. It is utterly peaceful. Located in "Coffee-Tasting Country on the Big Island, this lush, low mountain area has charming little hamlets, ocean views, and delicious coffee, food and art to explore, not to mention the beautiful nature all around us. Gale, as a native with a proud heritage on the island, can direct you to the places most tourists would not discover on their own. We will return!

The Most Charming Spot in All of Kona

  • 5 of 5

Our two week stay at The Cottage at Ohio Place will be remembered as one of our most cherished vacations. We have visited the Hawaiian Islands many times over the past 30 years and have stayed in the most luxurious hotels that the Islands offer. And yet none compare to the experience we had here. The owner has planned for your every need and pleasure. We love having a location off the beach. This is a gem! We were truly sad to leave. It had become like a vacation "home".

Romantic, peaceful & authentic

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Gale's cottage was so comfortable! She has put thought into everything you could ever need! The stay was a short drive down to the busy party of town but we enjoyed being able to escape the busy and come back to a peaceful place where you hear the birds chirping. This was our first experience doing a vrbo and we will definitely do it again! Thank you Gale!! ❤️
