Wonderful oasis

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our family of three. It is very comfortable and well appointed. We were able to snorkel off the landing, enjoy the most amazing sunsets over the water and relax on the deck under the stars. While it feels like you are in your own private tropical oasis the cottage is also close to restaurants and shops. It is close to all the attractions of the Kona Coast. We hope to be able to return for a longer stay.

Michael was a very generous host.

Perfect Oceanfront Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay in Kona. The cottage is located literally about 25 feet from the ocean. There is a pathway leading to the bay where it is easy when its calm to snorkel during the day exploring the coral and tropical fish. At night one can easily swim out approximately 200 feet and enjoy Manta Rays which come each night to feed in the bay due to the lights from the Sheraton next door. Most people are forced to take a tour boat to see the Manta Rays which is quite pricey; when staying in the cottage the Manta Rays are just a short swim away.

The cottage is nicely appointed with a lovely deck overlooking the bay. The cottage is perfect for two people and the outdoor kitchen is perfect for making simple meals. The Sheraton is next door so restaurants and bars are a short stroll away. The grounds are professionally landscaped with tropical trees, bushes, and flowers. The residence has been in the same family since the 40's and they take a lot of pride in the property and it shows.

The bed in the cottage is also very comfortable and the cottage even has central a/c.

We have been visiting the Kona area for over 20 years and this is definitely our favorite place to stay; I highly recommend the property.

Great View and Patio for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Loved the privacy and the view. Swimming and snorkeling are great right off the property though waves can be high at times for getting back out onto the lava rock.

Secluded Bayfront Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved the privacy of this small cottage, which is surrounded by well-manicured, lush tropical vegetation and hidden behind a private gate adjacent to the Sheraton Kona. The cottage is nicely updated and has everything one needs for a perfect short get-away. The outdoor kitchen on the lanai is appointed with the basics necessary to prepare simple meals. We enjoyed watching the activity on the bay from the deck and hearing the gentle lapping of waves on the lava-lined shore during the night. Ocean access from the property facilitated frequent snorkeling and swimming adventures, and the outdoor shower with hot water was a pleasant luxury. The owner was on site, and provided knowledgable advice to enhance our island activities. The few requests and concerns we had were immediately addressed by the owner. Overall, the accommodations were even better than we anticipated them to be. Highly recommend.
