About Yukiko Northon
Aloha! E Komo Mai! Welcome to our Hale! We are the Northon Family, Jeff, Yukiko, and our children Nicholette, Alyssa and Jason. We have worked together to bring this wonderful house together so that it may be used as a retreat, a vacation house and eventually, Jeff and my permanent residence. We hope to share the love we have for our home with you and give you a chance to experience the wonderful island of Hawai’i.
Why Yukiko Northon chose Kalaoa
We purchased this house with the intent to move back to Kona after the kids grew up. The kids are now grown and we are living in Hawai'i and now, and have this wonderful vacation rental. We have remodeled this house for comfort and beauty and want to share it with those that can appreciate Hawai'i and its inhabitants.
What makes this House unique
This house is located in the Highlands where the air is cooler and crisp in the evenings but still warm by mainland standards. It is a place where the *rush* of being on vacation can be let go and one can truly relax to the sounds of nature. Being among the Locals, it is very different than the 'Resort Style' living, coupled with our personalized service, it is by far, the 'best of both worlds'!! This house is a place where dreams are made and realized.

Very clean and comfortable house
I'd recommend this place to anyone with a group of four or less with a rental car. When the sun sets - it's time to enjoy the palatial living room with reclining love seats, ceiling fan with a huge smart tv (already set up with Netflix and a variety of other streaming services).
Without question - the most relaxing living room we've ever experienced and just perfect at the end of a long day in the sun!
So very glad you enjoyed your stay!! It was really nice meeting you both!! You both are welcome back any time and bring friends!!
Just so there's no confusion, the downstairs ohana was yours to use as well!!! So a total of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and actually 2 kitchens. 😊� Plus we have air beds and futons for Folks to use!
Hope that you will be our guest again!!
Lovely stay on the big island
This house is really lovely, especially the large outdoor seating area. We had beautiful views of the ocean and enjoyed all the birds and flowers. This house is very conveniently located and very well appointed with everything you could need. The host was very gracious as well. We highly recommend this lovely vacation home.
Thank you so much!! I'm so happy that you all had such a nice time here. I certainly hope that you will return to the KGH again! It was a pleasure meeting all of you!

Great home, with great amenities !
We had a wonderful time staying in this home, it was perfect for 3 couples. All three rooms had queen beds. Everything you need they had at the home, including kitchen appliances. There were beach towels, umbrellas & even snorkeling gear to use. We had a great time & would definitely return to stay in this home.

There are so many wonderful adventures that you can have here in Hawai’i, that it would be difficult to list them all, however, here are a few that we have enjoyed. 1) Dolphin Quest: Take the time to learn all about the dolphins and interact with them. It is fantastic to be able to touch them and learn about them. 2) Kohala Kayak and SUP: Sean, of Kohala Kayak is a wonderful guide and teacher of Stand Up Paddle. He also does Kayak trips and other water activities. He is knowledgeable about the area and is a very patient teacher. 3) ZipLine: This is quite the adventure and very fun. 4) Mauna Kea Observatories: This is a fantastic day trip. Be sure to take the time to adjust to the elevation at the store for at least an hour before continuing up to the Observatory. There are tours available if you do not want to go up yourself. 5) Paleaku Peace Garden: A wonderful place for looking at different plants and scenery. They have a garden representation of the Milky Way, which is pretty cool. 6) Akatsuka Orchid Gardens: This place has an *amazing* collection/display of orchids for sale and display. It’s on the Hilo side of the Island. 7) Hawai’i Tropical Botanical Garden: Located off of Hwy 19 near the Hamakua Coast. The drive going to the garden is also quite beautiful. Well, there are lots more adventures available, but, half the fun is finding them!
