Kailua-Kona Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

I won't bore you with repeating everything everyone else has said in their reviews except to say THEY'RE ALL TRUE!!! This is THE place to stay if you're coming to the Big Island...Gale has thought of everything to make your stay the best possible, and she is the kindest, most thoughtful hostess we have encountered so far...thank you Ms. Gale for welcoming us to your property, thank you for making our engagement special...and thank you for the banana bread!!!

One thing folks, if you do stay here, you must promise to treat The Cottage at Ohia Place with respect and love...it and Ms. Gale deserve that honor.

Can I say AWESUME. I could give it more stars if I could.

  • 5 of 5

I have to start by saying that we have rented many homes on VRBO from Spain to all the HI Islands....everything in-between and Gale's place is absolutely the best ever rented. What really makes the difference is she welcomes each visitor and is a very ingaging person. The location is in the very best location and we know because we drove the entire island, wanted to really get to know it, and concluded the Kailua-Kona area was perfect for us. This location is a bit higher in elevation so when you have spent a day at the beach it is nice for a bit cooler climate. That's not to say it's uncomfortable cold it is just perfect.

She really pays attention to every detail. I have never been in a rental that supplied shampoo, conditioner to ear plugs, in the night stand drawer, and all the beach equipment you need. And if you don't have it there I'm sure she will help you get it. Her "Cottage" welcome book is professionally put together like the Four Season Hotels. Just like all the five star hotels. Don't get me wrong this does not determine my every needs the point is it went way beyond it. That's just how Gale is.

As you see in the pictures the place is all one space but the way she has it set up each space feels as it should. And personally we like open spaces. The outdoor shower is fantastic! and I don't believe she has pictures of that on the web site. We will be back again!! Thank you Gale and a shout out to Merton!!!

Unbelievable!

  • 5 of 5

My goodness, this was an amazing stay! I could not have dreamed up a nicer lodging choice in the Kailua-Kona area, much less just about anywhere! I honestly believe that the many folks who choose to stay in Hawaii's luxury hotels do not find accommodations this nice. Gale is the perfect hostess, from her warm greeting, to her thorough introduction to the cottage, to the DELICIOUS homemade banana bread she provided. Her cottage is so beautifully decorated it will take your breath away. The highest quality furnishings and appliances are complemented by delightful pieces of art, dramatic lighting, and loads of blooming orchids and fresh flowers and greenery. The polished floor of local ohia wood is stunning, and the slate-walled bathroom and pebble-floored shower is quite wonderful. This was my most expensive of five VRBO rentals on the Big Island, but it was very well worth every single penny. Count yourself very lucky if you can arrange a stay here!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is AMAZING, and so is Gale. We arrived very early in the morning due to a delayed flight, and Gale was there to greet us with open arms. She also had a delicious light meal waiting, as well as her homemade banana bread and local fruit.

The cottage itself is beautiful. You can see and feel all the love she has put into building and decorating her place. There are many personal touches, including fresh cut flowers inside the house and on the lanai. Gale provides everything you could possibly need. She had bath robes, ear plugs, a magnified lighted make-up mirror, umbrellas, beach chairs and towels, coolers, fans, etc. We really loved having a full size washer and dryer to do laundry.

The cottage is very private and in the perfect location. It is up at a slightly higher elevation, and so it is a very pleasant temperature. It is away from the busy town of Kona, but it is still easy to get to everything. The airport, Costco, beaches, and stores are all within 10-15 minutes.

We really can't say enough about how wonderful it was to stay at Gale's place. This is by far the best VRBO we have stayed in, and we would absolutely recommend it!

Perfect cottage for couples appreciating location, design, cleanness and privacy!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent 2+ fantastic weeks at Gale’s Cottage at Ohia Place in July 2016 and could not have wished for a more perfect accommodation on the beautiful island of Hawai’i.

The cottage is perfectly located in Kaloko Mauka – given the elevation, temperatures are very pleasant both at day and at night. It is just perfect to enjoy breakfast as well as dinner at the lanai and (in contrary to beach properties) AC is not needed in the night.

The cottage provides a lot of amenities (exceptional kitchen utensils, outdoor shower, washing machine, beach chairs, etc., etc.) which made our stay even more enjoyable. The amazing interior design and very high quality of the furniture add a very personal touch to the cottage and made us immediately feel home.

Gale has been a warm-hearted and fantastic host – providing full privacy but always being available whenever we needed any help or recommendations for the Big Island.

We can only recommend the Cottage at Ohia Place for anyone looking for a very cozy yet stylish accommodation in a great location close to beaches yet with a more appealing climate. We hope to return soon!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect for couples wanting a romantic getaway. The host is the most gracious host we've ever come across. She welcomed us with banana bread when we arrived and treated us to smoked ahi while we were there. She designed this place and it is apparent she put her heart and soul into this place. The place is well furnished and equipped with all the amenities you could need. If she doesn't have it, she will do her best to accommodate you! The location is centrally located and getting to anywhere on the Kona side is just a short ride! I will be recommending this property to all my friends and family looking for a quiet getaway!
