Holualoa cottage description

Snell Kona Coffee Farm is located on the historic Mamalahoa Highway in the Kona Coffee Belt area.

The one-acre coffee orchard of four hundred trees surrounds two beautiful custom designed and built homes; the main house and a cottage.

The farm is 1200 feet above sea-level on the slopes of Hualalai Volcano (dormant) with breath-taking views of Kona and the vast Pacific Ocean. The Cottage has a spacious covered lanai and sliding glass doors that open completely to the out doors; bringing the “outside inside.”.

The property is terraced with lava rock, landscaped with a variety of tropical plants and very private. The Cottage has a gas-fired barbeque.

The homes were designed by renown Seattle architect, Chris Snell. The architecture mimics traditional Hawaiian hale (homes) and Japanese farm houses.

The building materials are unique to the Kona-area. He incorporated lava rock walls, hand milled Ohia trees for posts, framing and paneling. The homes are constructed by the best carpenters and craftsmen on island.

The doors and cabinet work are teak and the cottage has a copper roof that was formed to replicate the corrugated tin roofs seen on old coffee shacks. The homes are exquisite in every detail.

This a working farm and during coffee harvest from September to December, you can watch coffee picking and processing on the farm. The pickers will not disturbe your serentiy. It takes 2-4 hours to hand pick the coffee. They pick about every six weeks during harvest-time.

Snell Kona Coffee Farm is only a ten minute drive down the mountain to Kona Town for shopping, and beautiful white sand beaches for swimming and snorkeling. Holualoa is a quaint town located 3 miles south of the farm.

The town is an artist-community and home to numerous art galleries. Mamalahoa Highway is a historic road, the High Road, and runs through the heart of Kona Coffee Belt with many fascinating towns, galleries, farms and historical sites.

Cottage:

The Cottage is uphill from the main house and surrounded by coffee trees, palms, and avocado trees for added privacy.

The architecture includes lava rock walls, hand milled Ohia trees for posts and boards for paneling, and woven lauhala panels. The vaulted ceilings is open to the copper roof exposing Ohia wood rafters and purlins.

The floor plan is a studio with one bath and walk in closet. The west facing sliders open to a covered lanai. A teak table, four chairs and a gas barbeque provide for fine outdoor dining.

The cozy kitchen has a Subzero two drawer refrigerator, deep sink, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, range, tea kettle, cook ware and utensils.

The bathroom has a wonderful shower with lava rock walls.

                      About the owner: I enjoy swimming in the ocean and learning about Old Hawaii.

                      Why the Owner Chose Holualoa:
                      The cottage is a 10-minute drive down the mountain to Kailua-Kona for shopping and beautiful white sand beaches for swimming and snorkeling. Holualoa is a quaint town located 3 miles south of the farm. It is an artists' community and features numerous galleries. Mamalahoa Highway is an historic road and runs through the heart of Kona Coffee Belt with many fascinating towns, galleries, farms and historical sites.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The cottage is uphill from the main house and surrounded by coffee trees, palm trees, avocado and other fruit trees for privacy. The quiet beauty of the surrounding jungle; the tropical song birds and the verdant coffee orchard imbue health and serenity.
