Awake to the sounds of tropical birds. Sip Kona coffee in comfy chairs at your glass-topped table on the patio outside, surrounded by palms. Pick tropical fruits from the garden in season.

A comfortable elevation at 1000', great for relaxing after trips to the beach or town. A short trip to everything, yet a world apart in a quiet neighborhood setting. Off-street parking just steps from your door, with washer and dryer available for your use.

Affordable, with Breakfast in Your Time Zone: Our ohana is a fantastic value. Why settle for a cramped hotel room or studio or a 'Continental breakfast' when you can enjoy a great, affordable ohana (in-law unit) with breakfast foods and Kona coffee. Since you may be coming from the Mainland, and might be hungry long before we awake, we fill your ohana with plenty of goodies, available when you're ready to eat, like papaya, finger bananas, Hawaiian granola and almond milk. You are welcome to pick fruits from our trees in season, including lemons, papaya,and star fruit. Use the washer/dryer.

We fell in love with Hawaii because of the Aloha spirit. We want others to enjoy the spirit of Aloha, too. Many of our guests have toured the island and returned to us before leaving Kona. All have raved about our comfortable, clean, affordable ohana. They say this was their favorite place to stay in Hawaii, and a better value than other places they stayed.

All the Comforts of Home - Well-equiped Ohana: You'll find everything you need in our well-equipped kitchen to prepare fabulous meals when you don't feel like going out or want to save money for adventures. Our full kitchen includes full sized refrigerator-freezer, 4 burner gas stove and oven, and all major appliances: Grind and brew fresh coffee to sip on the patio or lanai. Use our great collection of pots and pan, salad spinner, rice cooker, and cooking utensils to cook at home, including toaster oven, toaster, microwave, blender, rice cooker, coffee mill and pot, extensive glassware, wine glasses, pitchers, and utensils.

Prepare snacks and meals for day trips and take along goodies in baggies and totes. Use cold packs in the cooler. No need to buy all of the things you need only a little bit of. We stock the fridge with condiments, salad dressings, soy sauce, oils and vinegars. We stock cupboards with coffee, teas, sweeteners, spices, herbs, granola and almond milk.

Going to the beach? Boogie boards, fins, chairs, umbrellas, cooler, beach towels are all available.

Nowhere Else on Earth - Hawaii's Unique Offerings: The Big Island, the most exciting island in Hawaii, has 11 of the world's 13 ecosystems, from snow-capped mountains in winter, towering 14,000' above the ocean, to tropical rain forests. All this on an island almost 200 miles around. Kilauea Volcano adds land to the island daily, as lava flows into the ocean. See Thurston Lava Tubes in Volcano National Park, a short walk through a primordial forest of towering ferns. Star-gaze at Mauna Kea Observatory. Visit ancient heiau (temple) where King Kamehameha united the Hawaiian islands. Watch migrating whales and spinner dolphins at Kua Bay. Paddle out to Captain Cook's monument in Kealakekua Bay where the first known Europeans met Hawaiians. Meet Hawaiians, a truly diverse culture. Hula. Go to a real luau. Enjoy the sport of Alii (royalty), surf the waves. Swim with gazillions of colorful fish and sea turtles at Kealakekua Bay. Lie on a black sand at Punalu'u. Go coffee tasting at Kona farms. Discover your own secret treasures. Live aloha.

P.S. We are available 24/7 via cell phones. We have excellent house-keeping staff and property manager on call. Please let us know if we can do anything at all to make your stay ideal.
