Our home is located on the Big Island of Hawaii about 16 miles south on HWY 11 from Kailua-Kona town. The rates are: $130/night for 2 guests, $20.00 each additional guest/night, $725.00 for 7 nights for 2 guests, $80.00 for 7 nights for each additional guest, or $3,500 per month. The road to the house is a somewhat graded/paved single lane road with turnouts and no street lights. We recommend that guests schedule their arrival during daylight. The house is approximately 1 mile up the road and located mauka (uphill) off the road with a concrete parking pad in front of the elevated house. A rental car will be okay for the road provided the vehicle is driven with care. The house is 950 square feet with 2 bedrooms and a 3/4 bath (no tub). As can be seen in the photos, the kitchen, living room, and dining area are an open floor plan. The front lanai (deck/porch) faces the southwest expansive ocean view as do the sliding glass doors for the living and dining rooms. All other rooms have views of the many producing coffee trees on the 5 acre farm. Our coffee is picked and sold to Greenwell Farms in Captain Cook. There are tours available at the facility. There are also producing (depending on the season) Papaya, Avacado, Loquat, Mulberry, and Banana trees. Feel free to pick the ripe fruit. The stove and water heater are run on propane. The pressurized fresh water system-shower, all faucets, and toilet are supplied with roof rainwater into above ground catchment tanks, so water conservation is very important. Clothes washing (available for stays 7 nights or more) should be done with no other hot water in use.(there is drinking water supplied for your stay). We may be in Hawaii but we still have a dry season. Because the house is our second home the kitchen is well supplemented with various condiments, dishware, cooking and baking ware. Please note there is no smoking in the house or lanais. The house is located in a semi-tropical area and there are various critters on the property that can be encountered. There is a 4 night minimum stay with no refund once the reservation is confirmed. Guests are to wash their dishware and return to cabinets upon departure, all furnishings should be in their original place upon departure. A mailing address is required for mailing of information packet and key. Fireworks are not allowed anywhere on the property or building. Check-in no earlier then 1:00 pm and check-our no later than 11:00 am. In conclusion we hope you enjoy our house with fabulous oceans views, sunsets, crickets, chirping birds, geckos, roosters, hens and most of all, lack of city noise.

Because Hawaii is an island most of the activities are located within a 100 mile radius. The water activites such as snorkeling are located within a 4 mile radius. Hawaii Island has excellent snorkeling due to very little surface dirt runoff.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We are semi-retired and enjoy upgrading small homes, traveling, and working in our giant 5 acre yard/coffee farm.
Why the Owner Chose Honaunau: After spending 7 straight weeks of upgrading the house we became attached and decided to keep the property. The producing coffee farm with the various tropical plants, ocean view, and fruit was also a big influence on keeping the place for a home.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Picking the fresh fruit, ocean view sunsets ( some with a green flash), working in the field, close proximity to snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, picnics on the beach, and the warm temperate climate.
