A short 5 minute drive from Kailua-Kona, our spacious, 2,500 square ft., ocean view, 1 bedroom custom home is centrally positioned on 2 very private acres of peaceful gardens. This unique home includes a swimming pool amidst abundant flowering trees, shrubs, orchids, and fruit trees. Stroll through the extensive garden paths and marvel at the life's work of a master gardener. Depending on the season, our guests are welcome to harvest - for on site personal use - ripe oranges, limes, papaya, lychee, mango, passion, guava, banana, avocado, jabuticaba, figs; there is always something ready to harvest! In the morning, enjoy ocean views with fresh Kona coffee in the gazebo. In the evening, take in the gorgeous sunsets on the expansive lanai. Our property is conveniently located in Holualoa, a quaint artist's village in the heart of Kona coffee country, yet is just a short 5 minute drive to historic Kailua-Kona with its famous beaches, restaurants and shopping. Other unique activities include exporing Volcano National Park, world class Blue Marlin fishing, snorkeling with turtles, or take a front row seat to view the stars from the top of Mauna Kea!

My wife and I purchased the Garden House property in August of 2012, and we feel blessed to be the new owners of this unique Holualoa property. We are lifelong educators, currently living and working in Kenya, Africa. After 27 years as public school teachers in Juneau, Alaska, we chose to begin teaching overseas. During our travels we made notes of locations we might want to find ourselves when finished with our education careers. We first came to the Big Island of Hawaii 25 years ago. After a long, worldwide search for our retirement spot we came back to Kona and purchased the Garden House. Until we decide to conclude our life's work as educators and move to Kona, we invite you to be our guests at our Hawaii Garden House. We feel certain you will love this magical property as much as we do. Our daughter, Amber, lives on site and manages the Garden House.

The Big Island of Hawaii: world class golf, ocean sports, perfect weather, and a community of people who practice the aloha spirit. When we came upon the Garden House, we knew we found our sanctuary. The previous owner was a master gardner whose passion for the spacious two acres of gardens can be seen in every square meter of the property. It is our plan to continue his legacy.
We absolutely fell in love with the gardens! Walking through the paths of exotic varieties of fruit and flowering trees, dozens of flower varieties at the Garden House brought us back to the many places we have visited around the world. The previous owner cultivated these gardens for the last 30 years, and we are blessed to be the new owners of this property. A perfect location; private country living, yet just a few minutes from beaches, restaurants, and shopping. Include the ocean and sunset views, a very private pool, perfect temperature at 940 ft. elevation, and it doesn't get any better than this!
My wife and I spent a week at this home and really enjoyed it. The onsite manager was extremely welcoming and helpful. She greeted us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the home/property. The gardens were amazing, and we enjoyed collecting ripe fruit and making smoothies and fresh quacamole dip every day. Honestly, the avocados were incredible! The home and property are extremely private which made for a perfect Hawaii get-away-from-it-all vacation. It is in a very good location relative to many of the things we wanted to do and see while we were on The Big Island. Aloha and Mahalo!
Especially enjoyed waking up to the birds singing. Open air home was great. Comfortable and peaceful. We really had a chance to relax. Glad it was available.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment at this beautiful private home. We were stunned by the plethora of fruit and flowers in the garden that surround the house. The views of the Pacific were perfect for sunset watching and swims in the private pool. We enjoyed making fresh juice from the fruit trees on the property every morning. The house was exactly as described in the listing and really even more private and more spacious than we imagined. The owners were very helpful during the initial orientation to the property. The location in Holualoa is superb with a great local cafe restaurant; art galleries and jewelry and craft shops only a few minutes away. Kona is about a 12 minute drive down the hill.
My family stayed at this home for about a week and a half and had a great time. We loved having the whole pool to ourselves and relaxing on the huge lanai. My kids liked running around and playing in the massive garden, and we all enjoyed watching different sunsets each night. I recommend this property to anyone who is seeking a private getaway for great deal.
My husband and I had the opportunity to stay for a week at this property and really enjoyed this beautiful garden house. Coffee on the lanai, exploring the two acres of garden, swimming in the pool, we felt at peace in this slice of paradise. We enjoyed the many flowers and fruit trees on the property, it felt like we were in our own botanical garden! Gorgeous sunsets every night, and on the clear nights the stars were amazing, we even saw the milky way! Off the property, the beaches and town are just a short drive a way, and the property manager was very friendly answering any questions we had. We highly recommend this property, and will defiantly be coming back. :)
Holualoa is a quaint artist's community set in prime Kona coffee country. If you tire of the wonderful ocean/beach activities, golf and shopping, enjoy any of the activities located nearby. Coffee plantation tours, surf school, deep sea fishing, volcano viewing, or just relaxing by the pool. Be as active as you like, or, simply enjoy the peace and quiet of the 2 acres of botanical gardens that surround our vacation home.
