Located in South Kona, 23 miles south from Kona airport. Very private setting with beautiful view of Kealakekua Bay, Honaunau Beach Park and coastline view. Cottage is surrounded with tropical trees, palms, blooming flowers and coffee trees. We built this cottage few years ago with lots of recycling materials, carefully sorted and crafted . We used old red wood water tank boards for trims, recycled windows and doors. We chose oriental decor, using light colors on walls , dark woods and Japanese collectibles (kimonos, dishes, bowls and plates, tea cups e.t.c.) Cottage has 1 bedroom with 2 windows, sealing fan and a closet. Bathroom has a porcelain tile soaking tub and shower . Full kitchen , large fridge/freezer. All cooking ware and utencils. Hidebed sofa in the living room, TV/Direct TV/DVD player. Private parking lot with motion light for late arrival. Favorite of all our guests is a Tiki Bar with hammock and 'magic rope lights' in the evening. You can relax there drinking morning coffee from our farm or evening cocktail after hot day at the beach! Best snorkel , kayaking, swimming beaches right down below. It would take 15 minutes the most and you are in the water! We have snorkel sets, boogie boards, umbrella, towels, beach chairs and cooler for your convenience. Local shops offering large variety of fresh produce, fish and everything you need for your meals. Seasonal fruits such as papayas, bananas, pineapples, avocados and mangos can be picked on the farm. If you choose to eat out, there are many different restaurants in close proximetries . Italian, Hawaiian, Pizzeria, organic bakery and lots of other tasty food places. Farmers Market on Fridays and Sundays 2 miles from us. Many local vendors bring their produce, fruits, greens, macadamia nuts and crafts. We, the owners are here to help and make your vacation pleasant and smooth.
