About Jim Martin

We had been coming to South Kona for 15 years when we acquired the property early in 2013. We have been residents for three years, now.

Jim is a retired theatre artist/social worker/educator/student, and Terry owns his own business in international shipping. Jim stays more or less permanently in South Kona, while Terry is still working. He comes and goes regularly.

We have a 6-year old dog, Kona. She came over from LA over two years ago, and she is now a local girl.

Jim Martin purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Jim Martin chose Honaunau-Napoopoo

We fell in love with South Kona and the expansive views of the coast and the sea - as well as the myriad of activities the area presents. We bought a lot very close to the house and cottage and are considering expanding the orchard. We are not only the happy owners of a beautiful Hawaiian home, but we are mango farmers, tending a 30-tree mango orchard on our property.

What makes this cottage unique

We are in an ideal location for R&R after a day of Big Island activities - whatever your pleasure, be it snorkeling or diving in Kealakekua or Honaunau Bay, cycling, hiking, sight-seeing, coffee tasting or just experiencing Aloha! The area is very quiet and we have lovely neighbors. We are two drives down from Napo'opo'o Road so road noise is non-existent. We are surrounded by birds and lush vegetation. Kona polices the property, and keeps the wild chickens and turkeys away - usually. They can be brazen.

Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an amazing stay. The owners provided so much useful information which allowed us to explore the area immediately. The room is clean, comfortable and very spacious for two. The bed was very comfortable, bathroom is huge and the hairdryer was probably one of the best I’ve ever used. We highly recommend staying with Jim, Terry, and Kona! Thank you for the wonderful stay.

Magnificent property, gorgeous flowers, beautifully landscaped terraces and stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We had no problem finding the location and even though the steep private road looked intimidating at first, our small rear wheel drive car handled just fine.

We were greeted by the friendly owners, Jim, Terry and Kona, the dog. The air was filled with the delightful fragrance of gardenia, lemon and puakinikini, and an array of tropical plants and trees were tastefully planted with plenty of shade and sun provided.

Our cottage was clean and just right with the privacy we wanted and had everything plus more then we needed. The welcome fresh fruit basket was appreciated as was the very comfortable bed and all the artfully appointed furnishings. We especially enjoyed the outside shower and dining table. The neighborhood is very quiet and we felt at home. We had a great time and would love to return someday. Mahalo, Jim and Terry.

We are a short drive from beautiful Kealakekua Bay which has world class snorkeling, diving and paddling. Also nearby is Honaunau Bay, which also is a snorkel/dive/paddle mecca. Both Bays abound with dolphin and sea turtles as well as other beautiful marine life. Also located on Honaunau Bay is The City of Refuge (Pu'uhonua O Honaunau) National Historical Park - a link to the past of our Hawaii. Coffee and macadamia farms and mills abound in the area - as well as honey processing operations. There are hiking trails and tour operators who can arrange kayaking in the bays, snorkeling and diving. The views are stunning, and the area is rich in Hawaiian history. We are in nature, so we are surrounded by birds, exotic fruit trees and a bevy of flora.
