Drenched in sunlight and fifteen minutes from the beach, Mango Cottage is a Bali inspired retreat nestled on the slope of the now dormant volcano, Hualalai. The house has a large private yard filled with tropical plants, fragrant flowers, outdoor sitting areas and private hot tub. It is situated on a quiet single lane in a peaceful old neighborhood, complete with meandering turkeys and the wild parrots that occasionally visit the adjacent mango tree.
From the door of Mango Cottage to the crystal waters of Kua Bay is a 15-minute drive and another few minutes delivers you to the renowned beaches of the Kohala Coast. It’s just a quick 10-minute drive to Kailua-Kona where you will find supermarkets, a natural foods store, restaurants and other trappings of “Town.” There is much to explore from this central location and we are happy to share our life-long local knowledge.
Mango Cottage has been restored with new flooring, many windows, an efficient kitchen, and a lanai for relaxing outdoor living. Float in the hot tub and enjoy the Hawaiian starry night. The lush gardens surround the home and the feeling of separateness between outdoors and in is minimal. Mango Cottage is gated and private, offers WiFi, a dishwasher, and two flat screen TV's. A washer and dryer are available and in-house maid service is available upon request during your stay. The bedding and queen size mattress, including the additional single day bed in the living room, are high quality for a comfortable sleep amidst the tropical breezes and sounds of the distant water feature. Views from the house include the ocean and a park like setting, perfect to witness the green flash moment.
The concept of the space is to provide a totally serene indoor/outdoor experience with all the luxury of good, comfortable design mixed with Indonesian antiques and art. It is perfect for your Hawaiian vacation and to re-charge all of your senses… enjoy!

We have lived in Kona for thirty-five years and have called Hawaii our home! Our property has been a labor of love and we are delighted to offer the cottage as a vacation rental. My husband and I are now retired and spend much of our time in the garden, creating jewelry, or traveling to California to visit our grandchildren.
Christine purchased this house in 1986
The cottage, which is privately situated on it's own 1/4 acre of tropical gardens, large lawn area, beautiful sunsets, water feature and hot tub to relax and watch the stars.
I take enormous joy in landscaping and gardening. I've planted many fragrant plants and trees along with fruit trees. The interior decorations and many of the garden statues are inspired by Indonesia. The property is very private, not your usual tourist flare!
We are 8 minutes from the Kailua-Kona airport and 10 minutes to Kona town. If you drive 15 minutes in the other direction, you are at renowned beaches of the Kohala Coast 'Kua Bay'. We are close to everything and yet feel worlds away from it all.
We only spent a few days at Mango cottage but truly enjoyed out time. Anything we needed was on hand. The location served as a great home base when we were doing things on the Kona side of the island. If you have never stayed in Hawaii you will be surprised at how private and secluded you can feel on a property, and still be relatively close to anything you want to see or do.
Christine was a pleasure to work with. She went out of her way to understand what we would be doing while we were there and ensuring that any needs were met. The house was clean, comfortable and welcoming. The bed was great, good grill, washer and dryer, anything you would need in a kitchen, and just about anything else you might need. The weather is outstanding, warm days and cool nights at the house.
As cottage owners with VRBO, this was one of our first experiences as travellers Not only have we taken away some great ideas how we can better serve our guests , but we found Mango cottage to be truly amazing. As a Gardner my self , I understanding the amount of work it takes to maintain this incredible oasis. Our host greeted us warmly yet made an effort to leave us completely alone, she was like a ninja , raking fallen leaves and flowers, only when we were gone.
There is no thing we didn't love, the art ,furniture, flowers, sent, geckos, hot tub and stars , most of all privacy.
We loved our week at Mango cottage, and would stay again next time we go to the big island. It's only a 10-minute drive into Kailua but you feel dropped out once you are up the mountain and on the gated grounds. Christine had everything ready for us, including fresh fruit and various treats in the fridge. She was available but unobtrusive- perfect! The home was well-appointed and kitchen easy to cook in. Our favorite thing was having a private hot tub in the garden- we enjoyed it every day.
Lovely spot to escape. Nice little ride up in the hills that wind to the sweet retreat. Quiet lot, garden and cottage hidden behind gate with beautiful plantings, fountain hot tub and distant ocean view because of the height from the deck. Cottage is well appointed with lotions, shampoo, loads of kitchen extras. Under cottage is snorkeling equipment body boards, chairs etc. No complaints, enjoyed our stay!
We didn't know much of Kailua-Kona when we booked this place and we glad we booked it! The place is a very nice, cozy, quiet and private space. We felt very relaxed and wished we spend more days here! The picture doesn't do justice! The only deceiving things in the post is that there's no mango tree :( (It's totally fine, just thought it was funny that the place is named Mango Cottage, but there was no mango)
The place was clean, plenty of space, full bathroom with some small items if you need them (tooth paste, shampoo, soap...etc), she even has towels and multiple beach towels for us. There is no AC, but you do not need it at all.
Christine was very awesome in giving us direction, communicative before our trip starts and was very welcoming for us. The amenities there were pretty good (washer, full kitchen, hot tub, and even beach items under the house). I would advice you to not book it if you're afraid of gecko (they are very friendly though.... ). You will definitely need a car if you book this place.
A wonderful retreat in a quiet area with views of the coast. A place that I would be happy to spend weeks at. A great base and superb alternative to hotel life. Lovely garden area, commanding views from the lanai. Step indoors to the thoughtful and tastefully decorated interior. Totally functional well equipped kitchen. Comfy bed with good cupboard space. We felt totally welcomed by our attentive host who made sure that we had all the information we needed. Mahalo Christine!
We are a short drive from wonderful beaches, hikes, snorkeling, surfing, golf courses, and shopping. Take a short walk on Kohanaiki road to 'Zen Retreat' for facial treatments with appointment.
