Apartment, 1 Queen Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bathroom
We moved from California to the Big Island of Hawaii in 1986. We love the slower paced island lifestyle, weather, and water activities. We have traveled extensively and would love to share what we think is one of the most beautiful places in the world with you.
Donna purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Donna chose Kailua-Kona
Having lived at various other locations on the Kona Coast since 1986, we found our dream property in 1999, and call it 'our final resting place'. Our 1 acre coffee estate is situated at a perfect elevation, which offers a bit cooler temperature than at sea level. It is in a rural, quieter area, yet still just minutes away from town and the beach.

In this time of fear and uncertainty we hear many stories of coming together, kindness, love, and compassion. Sadly, this is not one of them.
On March 13 when we left our home to visit Hawaii there were no cases of the COVID-19 virus in Alaska or Hawaii. We arrived to begin our dream vacation to celebrate my retirement from teaching special needs kids for thirty years. As the days progressed the homeowner made easy requests such as respecting their social isolation and no contact with their three cats. We were happy to comply with all of their requests.
We had been following the COVID-19 situation on the television and were making arrangements to return to Alaska earlier than we had originally planned.
On the evening of March 23, while sitting on the lovely gazebo watching the sun set, the homeowner began yelling from the main house lanai, “Get out of my house! Go home!” We moved into the apartment when I began receiving texts. This is one example “Please go home. Get on the next flight. Forget your mileage awards and get smart. You are jeopardizing our community’s medical resources for our residents here. Vacation over.”
Our family had worked hard and saved for this special trip. We were hurt by her harsh, uncaring words. I would not recommend staying at this woman’s home. We were made to feel very unwelcome in this very difficult and frightening time.
This review doesn’t even deserve a response for the selfishness, and disrespect these guests displayed in their prolonged stay in our small community during this pandemic crises. Unused days were fully refunded.
Property was as described, immaculately clean and prepared. The lights were on and door open as per a prearrival text. Coffee plants growing on property along with beautiful flora plantings. Didn't get to stay long enough (should have planned longer visit). Positive interactions with Donna and Robbie. 5 Star!
Their attention to detail was amazing, clean well maintained facility, beautiful views
Cozy and beautiful
Wonderful and cozy property. Spacious and full kitchen. Gorgeous view of the ocean from the property. Would definitely stay here again!
Excellent experience 👍
We found the property in excellent condition, decorated beautifully with Hawaiian charm. Felt at home from the moment we arrived. Donna & Rob we're pleasant to visit with, very informative. We highly recommend their property !!
