Studio/Cottage - w/ kitchenette and outdoor shower

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.

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 Kona Coast

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.

Perfect getaway in an orchard!!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here...this is a perfect getaway for anyone wanting peace and quiet in a very clean cabin with all amenities. It is very close to the beach for swimming, surfing, snorkeling, walking or just enjoying the warmth of Hawaii. Jim is a most welcoming host and is willing to share his knowledge of areas to visit..I recommend this property to anyone looking to spend time in the Kealakekua Bay area.

Lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Spent 5 nights in this wonderful cottage. We were amazed at how quiet and peaceful the property is. Owner was very welcoming and available for questions and suggestions if you want. Cottage is separate from main house, and very well equipped, clean, and beautiful. Close to Honaunau, Two Step, Keahou Bay where we took a raft trip to Kealakekua Bay for stunning snorkeling . Also toured the nearby Big Island Bees farm. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

A wonderful quiet location away from, but not far, from central Kona. This was our second stay at the cottage and would highly recommend it! Great local restaurants, local artists shops and great hosts that make you feel welcome during your stay.

Mahalo, Jim and Terry!

Lovely little studio cottage on a really beautiful property in the hills above Kealakekua bay. Great location, super convenient to snorkeling at Hōnaunau Bay and the hike down to Kealakekua. Jim and Terry are great and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Highly recommend.

The hosts were very friendly; welcome basket, refreshments in the fridge and most importantly, a detailed description how to find the property, tips about restaurants and local attractions - very helpful! We liked the location - quiet and secluded.

Perfect South Kona Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

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!

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.
