Other Amenities

  • We encourage couples with our pricing--it's really not too big a house for just two people. We love our longer term rentals and provide a good break in price for stays of over a month. This is a great house for couples traveling together as the main bedrooms, both with king beds, are at opposite ends of the house, providing privacy. It's perfect for families as well--we raised our two children in this home. A single older woman who works away from home lives below house in separate apartment, very low key, gone much of the time--you will hardly know she is there. ...moreless

Just south of the small artist town of Holualoa, perched on the mountain above Kailua-Kona is a perfect place to enjoy Hawaii at its best. You've got the ideal temperature here where you can quickly escape the heat and crowds of Kailua-Kona. The lovely town of Holualoa is just a little over a mile away for you to wander through and get a feel for this creative artist community. Here some of the finest coffee in the world is grown. Mamalahoa Highway is a historic scenic drive that winds you through Kona coffee farms and tropical plantings. Kailua-Kona and Keauhou are so close (10 minutes!) for all your beaches, groceries, dining and entertainment.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Des and Lisen were both born in Hawaii, Des' family first having arrived in the early 1800's. We have a coffee farm, Holualoa Kona Coffee Company, about a half a mile from this property where we grow, mill and roast coffee for many farmers in the Kona area. Free tours of our organic farm are offered. Des is a farmer at heart and also enjoys growing chocolate, breadfruit and tropical fruits which you will see surrounding Kona Le'a Guest House as well. In our free time we enjoy ocean swimming, stand up paddle boarding, surfing and hiking. We live in the center of the island in the small town of Waimea where our children go to school.

Why the Owner Chose Holualoa:
We love the privacy of living in the rural hills above all the action of Kona--but also enjoy being close to it. It's a perfect spot between two worlds. This elevation has a delightful temperature--never too hot or cold, just right. This home has a special feel to it--a feeling of old Hawaii with all the comforts you enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Huge old trees surrounding the house give a feeling of being in a tree house--tucked away in a tropical wonderland of flowers and fruit trees. A great feeling of privacy with a grand view of the Kona coast.
