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 Kailua-Kona

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.

                                                                Fantastic place to stay near Kona!

                                                                Cal D.

                                                                This is a great little property set higher in the hills where it is actually cool enough to sleep. The cottage is amazing with open beam cedar ceilings and lovely tile. This cottage was built with love. Very quiet and secure. Absolutely a must if you are looking for a place to stay on the Kona side of the island.

                                                                Jungle retreat

                                                                Garhet L.

                                                                Beautifully hand crafted home in the jungle with lots of privacy and star gazing. The house had all the required amenities plus beach supplies. I plan to recommend this house to all of my friends who come to the big island. The cat Ollie makes sure everyone is awake around coffee time than heads off agin, he’s legit. Quality experience overall.

                                                                Best 6 days ever

                                                                Marilyn M.

                                                                The cottage, hosts, visiting cat and location cannot be found anywhere else. Come here to chill, regenerate, whatever. You will not regret time spent. A quick ride to the beach, etc.

                                                                A truly HAWAIIAN experience for the traveler that wants to see the REAL Hawaii.

                                                                LEONARD B.

                                                                If you’re looking to be near all of the tourists and tee shirt shops and demand room service, then skip this place. If you want to experience what it’s like to live like a true kama’aina, your own house, your own space, away from it all, cook fresh seafood and Big Island steaks in your own corner of paradise, see the stars at night, then this is truly the ultimate experience. Beautiful house, lush tropical forest, comfortable and tasteful furnishings, well appointed kitchen, grill, outdoor bathtub, wildlife, flowers, cool nights, Ollie the cat, and wonderful hosts in Bill and Kathryn. We will absolutely be back. We stayed there for 8 days. We wouldn’t ever consider staying in the town of Kailua-Kona. This place is full of ALOHA!

                                                                Quiet and Serene

                                                                Paul B.

                                                                Roomy. Private. Surrounded by rainforest. Clean. Owners were kind. Our stay was too short! Would highly recommend and will definitely be booking upon our return to the Big Island.

                                                                Beautiful! Quiet and cool.

                                                                We’ve always stayed on the beach, so this was a different experience for us. It was quiet and cool and away from the crowds and traffic. It is off the beaten path, but we were in town or out exploring every day anyway, so we didn’t find it inconvenient. We enjoyed sweet Ollie’s (the cat) visits every morning!
