This fabulously restored and redecorated cottage has its own private lanai with full ocean view overlooking Honokahou Harbor and is nested in a small quiet family farm surrounded by bananas and hapuu ferns. The cottage includes a full size private bathroom and a small kitchenette fully stocked with all amenities except the full size stove, but a large propane barbecue with a side burner for pots or skillets will meet all of your cooking needs when combined with the high quality toaster oven and microwave we have in the kitchen.
The interior is a very pleasant 400 square feet and is furnished with a brand new COMFORTABLE pillow top mattress to rival the absolute best accommodations on the island. A good night's sleep is SO important when you are on vacation and if you are a seasoned traveler you know those 'other' places can drive you insane with those cheap horrid mattresses that must have been designed by the Marquis de Sade!
Our favorite leather couch and chair is there for you to cozy up on in the evenings with your book or to catch the latest Netflix release or watch our full range of Spectrum local and network television if you so desire. A smart little table is nestled between the Ludovia lancifolia palms and the rattan chairs you'll watch the Kona sunsets in while sipping your evening (or morning, or afternoon) mai tais.
Tired of your daily grind? Our neighbors a Hula Daddy Coffee can provide you with what could be considered the finest coffee on the planet that you can make whenever you want in the French press or drip coffee maker in the kitchenette. You will also find the blender, and other accessories you won't find elsewhere like a juicer (try it with the starfruit from the Kona Farmers Market), a waffle iron and other must have items. Ask co-owner Daryle for some of his Holualoa sourdough starter found only at Knigge Farms and a waffle recipe! Yum!
We are just minutes to hiking, the beach, sport fishing. Get up early at least one time to go snorkeling at sunrise at King Kam beach on Alii Drive, one of the many snorkeling spots you will find on this side of the island. My other personal favorites are Kua Bay and the Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park which was once the home of royals, immerses you in Hawaiian culture and "Two Step" beach just outside of the parking lot is just an incredible snorkeling spot! All of these are a must do.
Big Island has tons of activities- helicopter tours to kayaking with the dolphins. Visit the Volcano and Akaka Falls. Venture into a lava tube at Kaumana Caves. Swim with the turtles and check out 1000 year old petroglyphs at Kaloko State Park, just 7 minutes from the farm.
