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.

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 open water 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.
