Property description

Kona Mountain Home & Cottage is a unique plantation style estate located on 3 acres on the slopes of Hualalai above Kailua-Kona. It is in Hawaii's serene cloud forest and is walking distance from hike/bike/horseback riding trails through the Honuaula Forest Reserve. Upstairs the home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, an open kitchen/dining/living area, fireplace, a private lanai off a guest bedroom, and an expansive lanai with access from kitchen, living room, and master bedroom. Downstairs is a large open deck with a Hot Spot hot tub, a BBQ grill, and workout/game room. A separate dwelling, our Ohana, adds 2 more beds, a kitchenette, outdoor/indoor shower, and lanai.

Kona Mountain Home allows for full days between guests - this gives our staff a chance to make sure the home is in perfect condition for your arrival, and it gives you a later check out/earlier check in than most properties. Check Out is now 12 pm and Check In is 2 pm.

More than a just a house...: Kona Mountain Home offers guests the ultimate vacation experience while also giving a feeling of being home. Our family's dream came true and we hope to share this piece of paradise with you. Our guests don't need to worry about long lines to rent a kayak, or buying/bringing beach chairs, or packing bulky beach towels and coolers in their luggage. Some of our onsite adventure amenities are: Kayaks, Paddle Boards, Beginner Surf Board, Body Boards, Beach towels, Snorkel Gear, Coolers, Water Coolers, Chairs, & Shade Canopies. Through out KMH you will enjoy unique touches that make our home special, and you will feel the comfort that only quality details can give. KMH offers a beautiful, intimate setting for any couple, family, and/or friends to enjoy a special retreat as unique as Hawaii itself.

More about our home... The living room, master and guest bedroom have flat panel TV's with DISH satellite (full package including HBO, Cinemax, and Starz). The master bedroom is furnished with antiques (including an 1870 English Queen Bed), a large bay window, and access to the spacious lanai. The master bath has dual sinks, a soaking tub, and a glass shower. The guest bedroom has a private lanai and beautiful teak furnishings, including a queen size bed. The second guest room has a full and twin bed. Dining tables on the lanai and in the house allow for indoor or outdoor meals. The comfy new sectional sofa (with a queen size sleeper) makes it easy to cozy up for a movie after a fun day of adventure. The bright, open kitchen is cooking paradise and is stocked with stainless steel service ware, pots & pans, and long stem wine glasses. Appliances include a 5 burner gas stove, side by side stainless steel refrigerator, Cuisinart coffee maker, coffee grinder, Kitchenaid stand mixer, large microwave, & toaster. A new small washer and dryer are located on the second floor near the bedrooms and a full size new washer & dryer are located in the garage (very convenient for cleaning up after coming in from the beach).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My family and business reside in Austin, TX... but our hearts are always in Kona, HI. We have loved the island and the waters that surround it for decades. When we visit our 'piece of paradise' we love to snorkel, paddle board, hike, cliff jump, and catch up with our good friends living on the rock.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Kaloko:
Kona Mountain Home and Cottage is very special... central to Kailua-Kona, easy access to all North and South Beaches, yet so remote the birds are louder than any vehicle traffic. KMH is nestled in the eco-minded development of Kaloko and the forest reserves on the slopes of Hualalai.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
More than your run of the mill vacation rental... explore the island like a local. Kayaks and 6 person Hot Tub, Paddle and Surf Boards, Beach chairs and Shade canopies, Coolers and Snorkel gear... all for your use and enjoyment. Play, Explore, Relax @ Kona Mountain Home.
