Beautiful & Isolated
From the moment you approach the gate, and then enter the beautifully landscaped and immaculate cottage, you are surrounded by one of the most perfectly decorated and thoughtful places I've ever been. Gale has not missed a thing. From the shades on the lanai, to the hand sanitizer and bug spray, to the beach chairs and umbrellas, to the delicious fruit basket and banana bread, there is pride of work dripping from every corner.
Gale and Mertin were such wonderful hosts; they even brought us unbelievable smoked fish and pork! Truly incredibly kind and generous.
We will miss our coffee and breakfast on the lanai in the morning, and the perfect view to the sunset in the evening.
I will, however, not miss the roosters, haha. Like clockwork, expect them to crow between 3-4 AM every morning. So, if you're a light sleepere, keep that in mind. That said, I'll take nature sounds over road noise and humanity 10 times out of 10! Highly recommended :)
Cottage of your dreams
This is an amazing property. The cottage is beautifully constructed with very high-end materials and finishes, and decorated with an artists eye. Gale greeted us with a bowl of fresh fruit and warm, homemade banana bread. Nothing has been overlooked by way of amenities. A lanai the length of the cottage overlooks a gorgeous garden of native plantings and views clear down to the ocean. All Kona coast activities and restaurants require driving. By far the loveliest place we have ever stayed.
This is the perfect home base for for exploring the Kona coast or just kicking back and relaxing. The cottage and grounds are absolutely beautiful and well furnished. The basket of local fresh fruits, the pound of Kona coffee and the owner-baked banana bread made for several relaxing breakfasts on the lanai.
A Special Place
If you were to look up the definition of gems you would find a picture of Gale and her clean, cozy, well-equipped cottage. From the time of a warm welcome for Gale, with her goodies, to the day of, I can’t believe we’re leaving, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the tastefully designed cottage. Gale is a lovely person who is personable, informative and who responded quickly to any issue that arose.
An unforgettable stay in a very special place.
Gale's cottage is beautiful, modern, clean, and. tastefully decorated. The grounds are impeccably maintained and the view from the front porch is breathtaking. The location is very convenient. The kitchen is completely outfitted with every appliance and kitchen utensil you could need. Gale provides beach towels, chairs, umbrella and coolers. She is lovely and was very helpful in suggesting sights to see and places to explore. We loved our 5 day stay!
About Gale Allen
Born and raised in Kona, Gale's father was one of the founders of the sports fishing business in Kona in the early 50s; she and her family remain closely involved with fishing community. She has spent her professional life welcoming guests and connecting them to the rich traditions of the islands. We love the island of Hawaii: the vastness, the colorful and unique local customs, the sunshine and sunsets of the Kona Coast, and the hunting and fishing traditions of the country.
