The property is a one-acre lot with a small mango orchard (30 trees), fruit trees (lime, lemon, orange and avocado) and a beautifully manicured landscape. The cottage is separate from the main house, so your privacy is assured. There is a bathroom (with tub/shower), an outdoor shower, a well-equipped kitchenette with fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker, a queen-sized bed, an indoor eating area, as well as an out-door table and chairs, and a gas grill for cooking.
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
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.
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.
The cottage was well furnished, comfortable, clean, and well located. The hosts were more than gracious. We stayed at multiple places on the islands and this was one of the best! I would highly recommend this for those looking for something other than the big resort experience!
Very clean unit with a nice quiet area around the unit. Beautiful views from the property and plenty of room for parking. Friendly welcome from Jim and was very helpful with a very late arrival.
It was so much more. Beautifully put together, the owners were very friendly and greeted us with fresh fruit. They even allowed my brother and sister in law to come stay 2 nights at no charge, the place is smaller , luckily they brought their air mattress and blanket. Close to great beaches and many coffee shops... Kona their dog was a sweetheart!! I would definitely recommend staying here and would love to return.
This was a great find. The Pineapple Patch Cottage was very clean. Fresh fruit was a bonus and we were able to pick our own ripe oranges from trees in back. Jim gave us very good directions that we were able to follow arriving after dark. He also provided many suggestions on food, sights, and things to do that were not just local but on the entire island. Although our stay was only for 2 nights, we used the tips for our entire two week island stay. We would have no reservations about renting here again. Mahalo.
The house is perfect for two. Ist very clean and equipped with all you Need to enjoy your vacation. Jim and Terry are very friendly and helpfull. We can recommend this accomodation for everybody.
Thanks to Jim and Terry
Loved our stay. Host was there if we needed him. Comparing the room to our other stays, at first we were a little disappointed that it was small. But after a few days and we settled in, we realized how perfect it was! It was a nice treat to have a papaya, bananas and 100% kona coffee awaiting our arrival. The bed and sheets were super comfy. Never ever watched tv! Forewarn - it's not the type of neighborhood for walking much. It is all steep hillsides. But, it's a great location to drive down to two step for some morning snorkeling. Enjoy.
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.
