About Kathryn and Bill Foster

Bill is a licensed General Building Contractor, and I am a licensed Realtor in the state of Hawaii. We designed and built the houses on our property, and have decided to make this our final home. During our 20 years here we have lived in Waikoloa Village, moved to Kona and continued to move to higher elevations preferring the cool climate of the higher elevations. If it is your dream to live in Hawaii we can help make that a reality.

Why Kathryn and Bill Foster chose Kona Coast

Get a unique Hawaii experience. Wake to the sounds of birds, hike through the forest of Ohia, Koa and Hapu Ferns, and pick wild Lilikoi.

What makes this cottage unique

Tucked into the fern forest, ideal for hiking, bird watching and photography. If you find the heat in town a bit much for you, this is the ideal location. The Big Island is known for it's world class fishing and active volcano.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for everything and mostly the use of your beautiful place. We had a wonderful stay and will look forward to returning.

Beautiful hidden paradise

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do this place justice. It's perfect in so many ways - beautiful wood construction, wonderful shower, comfortable beds and furniture to lounge on, functional kitchen including dishwasher and laundry! Outside is a lush, unbelievably private paradise that is in direct contrast to the relatively dry coastal areas on the Kona side. The outdoor living space is gorgeous with well maintained landscaping giving way to a tropical rain forest. Even though it's only 15 minutes to town (and the airport), the cottage feels isolated and unbelievably private. It was a welcome relief to come "home" to cooler temperatures, and moist tropical air after beach days. We also enjoyed the beach chairs and boogie boards. If you're looking for a very reasonably priced, beautiful rental look no further. We will return!

Awesome cottage and location!

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage and location with very hospitable hosts. We enjoyed the outside bath, visits from Ollie (the cat) and quiet beautiful mornings. We really appreciated all of the thought that went into the details of this beautiful home.

Soothe your soul

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed by staying at the retreat. Fresh air, very comfortable, clean cottage, a cat should you miss home. But, you probably will not miss home, but will appreciate the forest, birds, lack of humanity, and opportunity to refresh. Even though I was traveling solo, I was never uncomfortable with the remoteness. Stock up with groceries before you arrive so you will not have to leave the cottage and deal with Kona traffic.

Beautiful home in the cloud forest

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is up the moutain 3,000 ft. It is a very different world from down at the water. It is a quiet respite and we enjoyed staying there. The hosts are resposive, hospitable and flexible. If you would like a different experience in Hawaii this is it!

beautiful and secluded cabin in the rainforest

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a special place to celebrate Christmas. This secluded cabin in the rainforest was perfect. It was so cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed the fireplace for the cooler mornings. Our only complaint was that it was so relaxing and homey we didn't want to leave to explore the rest of the island! The owners are great to work with, and the location is perfect if you want to get away from the crowds, but still be conveniently located to explore all of the wonderful beaches along the Kona coast.

Very private

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet, secluded place to enjoy a relaxing family vacation and we found it! The cottage was so beautiful and comfortable. The owners made us feel right at home and were very friendly and helpful. We were completely surrounded by the forest and had complete privacy. The outdoor bathtub got a lot of use! The indoor shower was huge, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare our meals. It got a little chilly a couple of nights, so the wood stove came in handy to get the chill out of the air in the morning.The beaches and Kona were only a 15 or 20 minute drive away, so we really felt we had the best of both worlds. We enjoyed a hike through the forest on a nearby trail one day and a walk to the nearby coffee planation for some free samples. We will definitely be back!
