Property description

Christmasberry cottage was originally constructed in 1991. It was my mother’s home until 2006. We have repainted inside and out, added a beautiful gas fireplace, replaced refrigerator and range and decorated with Hawaiian artifacts, Pegge Hopper and Karen Spachner prints.

For your vacation, you have a whole 1250 square foot, three bedroom house. There is one full bathroom and one bathroom with shower. There are two lanais, a large one overlooking the ocean and a smaller tiled porch from which you can watch and listen to the birds while basking in the morning sun. You have exclusive use of the two stall garage for your vehicles and toys. Your washer and dryer are also located there.

Design and decor: Outside, the house has the look of a traditional country home: red hip roof and green siding.

Inside, the living and dining areas are airy and inviting. Flooring in the big living room is beautiful native Ohia hardwood. Each of the bedrooms is uniquely decorated. My Geisha room has two Japanese inspired platform futons, and oriental style fabrics. The Ukulele room has a fun retro feel. The sunny master bedroom invokes a fragrant flower lei motif. Every room has big windows bringing nature close. Six people are accommodated comfortably.

Christmasberry Cottage is located above Kailua-Kona near historic Holualoa town. The newly redecorated house is set in an ohia- koa forest. It is an agricultural property with coffee, macadamia nut, citrus and banana trees. Situated up-country away from the hustle, bustle and heat of town, soft breezes, birdsong and an ocean view await you. Yet you are only 15-20 minutes from Kailua-Kona’s many amenities. Vacation here in this charming home and enjoy privacy, space and security in a gated community.

Nature lovers will find this an ideal locale. From November to April, humpback whales can be seen right from shore. Dolphins can be seen year-round. Birds abound on your own 5 acre property. Travel just a little farther afield for outstanding birding at the ocean shore and upcountry. There is a 1000ft deep lava tube cave on the property (experienced cavers only).
