Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hele Mai! Come and get away to our cozy country home with an amazing 180 degree coastline sunset view. Nestled in the mountains this home has unobstructed coastline views from the City of Refuge to Kealakekua Bay. The lanai with awesome views is a great place to sip your morning coffee and watch the sunset with its array of colors.

Our 3-bedroom home sleeps 5-6, and is furnished with touches of the tropics. It is very private and located on a 5-acre lot with a large yard in Honaunau, South Kona. The landscaping is very tropical with many varieties of native Hawaiian and other plants including Palms, Hibiscus, Orchids, Mangoes, Oranges, Avocados, Papaya and much more (you are welcome to pick the fruit in season when it ripens). Coffee and macadamia nut trees abound. Wild turkeys roam the property. The house is situated on a hill to offer you a spectacular views with cool breezes throughout the day and night (it is especially cool at night). Get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and come to experience country living in a peaceful setting that is a great place to relax.

The City of Refuge (in the top 20 of places to visit on the Big Island) and Honaunau Beach (GREAT for swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding and diving and, if you are lucky, swimming with dolphins and turtles) are located approximately 4 miles away. Local stores, restaurants and shops are nearby. There are a variety of eateries if you want to experience local cuisine: Da Poke Shack (rated #1 by Yelp) recently opened a 2nd location a stone's throw from our home, and a slew of other eateries are nearby. Outdoor pursuits are close by or simply relax and meditate in this serene area.

Honaunau is part of the Kona Coffee belt where lots of farmers cultivate the world renown coffee that is largely sought after. Coffee Mills, Bee Farms, Botanical Gardens, Black and Green sand beaches, Historical Monuments and more are located within a few hour's drive from our home. Experience and see the 10 out of 14 climate zones that Hawaii Island has to offer. E komo kai! You are welcome to make our vacation rental part of your home away from home!!

About Diane Cho

Honaunau is one of our favorite places on earth. Experiencing the hidden beauty of Kona is something we wanted to share with others.

Why Diane Cho chose Hawaii

This is a historic family property. In addition to the scenic beauty and tranquility of South Kona, visitors will get a chance to experience Kona from a 'local' point of view.

What makes this house unique

It is like heaven on earth. Very peaceful and serene with a spectacular view of Kealakekua Bay. It is on 5 acres of agricultural land and is lush with fruit trees (oranges, mango, papaya, avocado) and lush tropical foliage. I love watching the wild turkeys strutting through the yard followed by the chickens. We get away to recharge our batteries after the hubbub of the city.

I also love to take the scenic drive to Volcano through the southern most part of the island (which begins when you take a left turn out of the driveway and drive around the island). It has some of the most breathtaking views of the Big Island I have ever experienced. Side trips to Milolii, Hookena, South Point and Naalehu are must do's.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of your home. Our family enjoyed our stay here. The sunsets are beautiful from your veranda, and the nightly serenades took getting used to, but eventually grows on one's senses. Our family enjoyed Honaunau Beach; swimming with the green sea turtles was awesome. We look forward to future visits to Kona and having the opportunity to stay in your home again would truly be a blessing for it is a "home away from home."

Comfortable with a spectacular view!

  • 4 of 5

A very clean and well-maintained property. Very nice backyard with macadamia trees and tropical plants. Has a large, comfortable lanai with a spectacular view of the harbor and ocean. Watching the sunsets on the lanai became a nightly ritual! Kitchen is small, but functional. My only suggestion would be to replace the couches in the living room, since you sink to the floor when you try to sit in them. I would definitely rent this property again.

Comfortable Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home situated on a large piece of agricultural land was the perfect getaway for us. It was peaceful, comfortable and well stocked. The sweeping views of Kealakekua Bay from the lanai were incredible. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Great value, great views.

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing getaway. Quiet, beautiful views from the spacious lanai. Owner was very responsive and helpful. Should we find ourselves on the Big Island again we would not hesitate to come back. One note: we did have difficulty getting up the steep driveway when it was wet. A most enjoyable vacation. Our sons in particular enjoyed the boogie boards and the use of the cooler was also appreciated.

Our week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from a seven night stay at this peaceful, secluded home. The view from the lanai is amazing and the sunsets are glorious. The home is as described and was clean and ready for us when we arrived. Because we did not reach the area until after dark, we had a little trouble locating the driveway....the lady who lives next to the entrance came out and directed us....after that, smooth sailing. We used this location as a base camp as we explores Volcano National Park, Akaka Falls, Hilo, Puako, Kona Coast and Pu'uhonua o Honaunau - City of Refuge. We especially enjoyed the serenity each morning and evening as we sat on the lanai. Would definietly rent this again. Thank you, Diane!
