WELCOME Visit our charming custom-built apartment tucked away on 4 acres in up-country Kona. The apartment, with a private entry is located below our home and at the end of a long driveway allowing for privacy and seclusion. The property “looks like a park,” according to one guest, with expansive lawn areas, lush landscaping with ohia trees, tree ferns, antheriums, and other tropical plants. For his wedding, which took place in the yard, our son created a beautiful stream and pond full of koi and other tropical fish. In our fenced pasture live our horse, Scooby, and four sheep, Bandy, Roscoe, Buster, and Max.
BEDROOM AND BATH The peaceful and private master bedroom is decorated in a tropical theme and features a queen-sized bed. Travertine covers the floor, shower, and antique cabinet in the bathroom, which includes a tub shower combination.
SITTING ROOM The sitting room has a queen-sized sofa sleeper for two additional guests and features a 32” flat screen plasma HDTV. It is adjacent to the kitchen and opens on to the spacious lanai.
LANAI From the sitting room, step out onto a vine-covered lanai looking out to views of the Kona Coastline, the perfect spot to enjoy the garden and 'plein air' dining. The lanai is furnished with a teak dining set and two comfy wicker chairs.
KITCHEN The kitchen is small, yet sufficient, set up with a small refrigerator, cook top, microwave, coffee maker and necessary kitchen supplies for cooking and dining. Enjoy the granite countertop and lovely window that looks out to the yard and coastline views.

About the owner: My husband is from the beautiful island of Maui. I have lived in Hawaii since our wedding and am grateful that we were able raise our 4 children in this lovely place with its rich culture and lush surroundings. I am a retired teacher and my husband is a retired rancher now doing development consulting. We like hiking, swimming, golf, tennis and the ocean. 'Lucky we live Hawaii.'
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Kaloko: We opened our rental in 1995 in a private apartment below our main house. We rented it to guests for several years and recently our son and daughter-in-law lived in it for about a year. They have moved on to their own home and we are open for business again. I love sharing our lovely property and the Kona life style with guests. The rooms were recently renovated to make them even more beautiful and comfortable for our guests.
