Charming Kaloko Mountain Cottage with hot tub - private,secluded and cozy!!

Bedrooms 1
Space 535 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom

Wonderful, private and cozy cottage up in the forest of Kaloko Mauka ( directly above Kona town!). Situated on 5 acres and 2700 foot elevation, this stand alone cottage is surrounded by beautiful ohia trees and is at least 300 feet from the main residence. The owners live further down on the property. Wild chickens and native birds abound.

Kaloko is a special place with cooler weather than you will find down in town. It's nice to retreat up here after a hot day at the beach. Afternoon/evening rain does occur and it provides perfect sleeping weather. Evenings/mornings in the winter months can be cool, so we recommend light sweaters/socks if you get cold.

We are located on Mount Hualalai right above Kailua Kona. This one bedroom house has a small deck on the front and a larger deck with yard in the back. Nice and secluded. Perfect for the couple wanting a romantic getaway!

10 minutes to the airport, beaches and shops. Hike the mountain trail, birdwatch or just relax on the lanai! .

We have 2 rental homes on this property.: For those families that need a little more room, please inquire about our other vacation rental #186204! We will give families a discount for renting both cabins.

4G unlimited fast internet through Oceanic Time Warner award winner 9.0 rating!!!

About Caroline or Scott Carson

Originally from Oahu, Caroline and Scott moved to the Big Island in 1994 and started their own vacation rental business in 2003. They are the parents to two children and a menagerie of dogs, cats and hens.

Why Caroline or Scott Carson chose Kailua-Kona

We love the Big Island and Kaloko-Mauka is the most beautiful mountain neighborhood with lush forest. After a hot day in Kona town, nothing is as refreshing as heading up mauna for some cooler weather! Native birds, trails, and acreage gives lots of privacy and serenity.

Peaceful, quiet, relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located in a quiet, lush environment, where you can hear crickets, frogs and birds . It has all the necessary amenities, and is a short drive to beautiful beaches. It was a very relaxing and pleasant stay, as in an oasis of tranquility. Thank you for offering your property for others to enjoy.

Charming quaint, quiet getaway cottage.

This is a wonderful cozy cottage with everything you would need surrounded by lush tropical vegetation in the cloud forest. Caroline is a wonderful host and a pleasure to deal with.

Very quiet, cute cottage with everything you need for a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with two teens and myself, plenty of room for the three of us. Washer and dryer were a huge plus, as were the boogie boards provided.

Perfect Kona Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay with the Carson’s. The previous visit was to their cabin, this time we chose the cottage. Just like the previous visit, we were very pleased with their facilities and our stay. The cottage had everything a vacationer could wish for, including chickens that we could talk to every morning and late afternoon. After a hot day at the beach, their location is great, being at a higher elevation and on the acreage to escape the heat and crowds! We will rent this again on our next visit to Kona!

Mountain cabin close to town

  • 5 of 5

This mountain cottage is absolutely perfect. It's a short drive to Kona with all the restaurants, but also far enough away to feel like you're staying in Hawaii. It's a cooler temp higher up so it was a refreshing change from the heat of Kona and the beach. The whole cottage was private and surrounded by Hawaiian trees and flowers. The owners had cut fresh ginger and placed them right by the front door so we smelled sweet ginger fragrance every time we walked in or out the door. There are calming jungle noises like gentle rain, chickens, and tree frogs. The amenities are exactly as desired for a mountain cottage- simple and clean. There are body boards, a cooler, and BBQ grill available for use. The hot tub felt wonderful after hiking all day. On the last night we turned off all the lights in the house, poured some wine, and sat in the hot tub looking up at a blanket of stars in the night sky. Highly recommend. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a great stay. The location and setting of the cottage is perfect! It is totally secluded and you feel right in the middle of a forest but can get to town quickly and easily. We also loved that everything for a day at the beach is provided. Chairs, towels, cooler, snorkeling gear, umbrella and boogie boards. They really thought about how to make their renters comfortable. Caroline was great to work with. Very quick to respond to emails and very helpful with any questions I asked. Thanks again!
