Overview

About the property

Ocean View, Large Gardens, Quiet, Perfect Elevation, Fragrant

Drenched in sunlight and fifteen minutes from the beach, Mango Cottage is a Bali inspired retreat nestled on the slope of the now dormant volcano, Hualalai. The house has a large private yard filled with tropical plants, fragrant flowers, outdoor sitting areas and private hot tub. It is situated on a quiet single lane in a peaceful old neighborhood, complete with meandering turkeys and the wild parrots that occasionally visit the adjacent mango tree.

From the door of Mango Cottage to the crystal waters of Kua Bay is a 15-minute drive and another few minutes delivers you to the renowned beaches of the Kohala Coast. It’s just a quick 10-minute drive to Kailua-Kona where you will find supermarkets, a natural foods store, restaurants and other trappings of “Town.” There is much to explore from this central location and we are happy to share our life-long local knowledge.

Mango Cottage has been restored with new flooring, many windows, an efficient kitchen, and a lanai for relaxing outdoor living. Float in the hot tub and enjoy the Hawaiian starry night. The lush gardens surround the home and the feeling of separateness between outdoors and in is minimal. Mango Cottage is gated and private, offers WiFi, a dishwasher, and two flat screen TV's. A washer and dryer are available and in-house maid service is available upon request during your stay. The bedding and queen size mattress, including the additional single day bed in the living room, are high quality for a comfortable sleep amidst the tropical breezes and sounds of the distant water feature. Views from the house include the ocean and a park like setting, perfect to witness the green flash moment.

The concept of the space is to provide a totally serene indoor/outdoor experience with all the luxury of good, comfortable design mixed with Indonesian antiques and art. It is perfect for your Hawaiian vacation and to re-charge all of your senses… enjoy!

About Christine

We have lived in Kona for thirty-five years and have called Hawaii our home! Our property has been a labor of love and we are delighted to offer the cottage as a vacation rental. My husband and I are now retired and spend much of our time in the garden, creating jewelry, or traveling to California to visit our grandchildren.

Christine purchased this house in 1986

Why Christine chose Kona Coast

The cottage, which is privately situated on it's own 1/4 acre of tropical gardens, large lawn area, beautiful sunsets, water feature and hot tub to relax and watch the stars.

What makes this house unique

I take enormous joy in landscaping and gardening. I've planted many fragrant plants and trees along with fruit trees. The interior decorations and many of the garden statues are inspired by Indonesia. The property is very private, not your usual tourist flare!

We are 8 minutes from the Kailua-Kona airport and 10 minutes to Kona town. If you drive 15 minutes in the other direction, you are at renowned beaches of the Kohala Coast 'Kua Bay'. We are close to everything and yet feel worlds away from it all.

Truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Mango cottage was perfect in every way. Pictures and description do not do it justice. It is truly a remarkable place to enjoy The Big Island. Secluded and private, but close enough to everything you need. The house is stocked with exactly what you need to enjoy your stay, pack lightly since most of what you pack is already there. Snorkel and beach gear worked great for us, washer and dryer helped make beach day clean up a breeze. The landscaping and birds make this place feel like the perfect Hawaiian retreat. We absolutely loved our time here and look forward to coming back again.

Charming and incredibly comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely lovely, and Christine was a great host. She had amenities for us that made our stay quite comfortable, and the bedroom has an open air feel that made me feel like I was sleeping outside, (in the best possible way - no bugs!).

The yard was phenomenally decorated and well kept, with a wide variety of gorgeous plants. I just loved sitting outside, admiring it all.

Great private home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We only spent a few days at Mango cottage but truly enjoyed out time. Anything we needed was on hand. The location served as a great home base when we were doing things on the Kona side of the island. If you have never stayed in Hawaii you will be surprised at how private and secluded you can feel on a property, and still be relatively close to anything you want to see or do.

Christine was a pleasure to work with. She went out of her way to understand what we would be doing while we were there and ensuring that any needs were met. The house was clean, comfortable and welcoming. The bed was great, good grill, washer and dryer, anything you would need in a kitchen, and just about anything else you might need. The weather is outstanding, warm days and cool nights at the house.

Private oasis

  • 5 of 5

As cottage owners with VRBO, this was one of our first experiences as travellers Not only have we taken away some great ideas how we can better serve our guests , but we found Mango cottage to be truly amazing. As a Gardner my self , I understanding the amount of work it takes to maintain this incredible oasis. Our host greeted us warmly yet made an effort to leave us completely alone, she was like a ninja , raking fallen leaves and flowers, only when we were gone.

There is no thing we didn't love, the art ,furniture, flowers, sent, geckos, hot tub and stars , most of all privacy.

Thank you

Charming, secluded cottage on the big island

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Mango cottage, and would stay again next time we go to the big island. It's only a 10-minute drive into Kailua but you feel dropped out once you are up the mountain and on the gated grounds. Christine had everything ready for us, including fresh fruit and various treats in the fridge. She was available but unobtrusive- perfect! The home was well-appointed and kitchen easy to cook in. Our favorite thing was having a private hot tub in the garden- we enjoyed it every day.
