About Kyra Jones
My wife and I purchased the Garden House property in August of 2012, and we feel blessed to be the new owners of this unique Holualoa property. We are lifelong educators, currently living and working in Kenya, Africa. After 27 years as public school teachers in Juneau, Alaska, we chose to begin teaching overseas. During our travels we made notes of locations we might want to find ourselves when finished with our education careers. We first came to the Big Island of Hawaii 25 years ago. After a long, worldwide search for our retirement spot we came back to Kona and purchased the Garden House. Until we decide to conclude our life's work as educators and move to Kona, we invite you to be our guests at our Hawaii Garden House. We feel certain you will love this magical property as much as we do. Our daughter, Amber, lives on site and manages the Garden House.
Kyra Jones purchased this House in 2012
Why Kyra Jones chose Hōlualoa
The Big Island of Hawaii: world class golf, ocean sports, perfect weather, and a community of people who practice the aloha spirit. When we came upon the Garden House, we knew we found our sanctuary. The previous owner was a master gardner whose passion for the spacious two acres of gardens can be seen in every square meter of the property. It is our plan to continue his legacy.
What makes this House unique
We absolutely fell in love with the gardens! Walking through the paths of exotic varieties of fruit and flowering trees, dozens of flower varieties at the Garden House brought us back to the many places we have visited around the world. The previous owner cultivated these gardens for the last 30 years, and we are blessed to be the new owners of this property. A perfect location; private country living, yet just a few minutes from beaches, restaurants, and shopping. Include the ocean and sunset views, a very private pool, perfect temperature at 940 ft. elevation, and it doesn't get any better than this!

Perfect Stay Honeymooning from Ohio
I never leave reviews, but i valued everyone i read when deciding to book this place. I honeymooned here and it was perfect! We're 26 and rented a jeep for exploring the island during the day but for the times and days we wanted to chill this was perfect not just because it had a pool but for us from ohio this was a luxury feel to an amazing property. It felt like it was out of a movie this house opens up into this amazing garden area that surrounds the actual house. It makes it feel like you are living in a tame jungle which was so cool. The pool was awesome, great temperature, it was clean. The deck is massive. overall just a great experience no downfalls. All the descriptions used by the people posting this i would describe as being 100% truthful and accurate. If my wife and I ever get back to the big island we would stay here again for sure!
Two weeks of peace and quiet
The property is awesome and well maintained. Pool is perfectly balanced-(just enough chlorine) and very clean. The house is large and very accomodating. The abundance of flowers and fruits provide for incredible birdsong all day long. Wonderful relaxing experience.
Peaceful and lovely
Can't imagine a more peaceful setting sitting on the deck looking out over the garden to the sea. If you are into magnificent sunsets and quiet-this is where to come. The extensive gardens are lovely but could use a bit more maintenance. The house is spacious. Would definitely recommend this place.
A Beautiful, Tranquil setting in a wonderful area of Kona
It is a beautiful setting and a great place for peaceful healing. I was rushing to emergency
4 days after arriving and had surgery for cancer of the colon. After 5 days in the hospital
I was glad to come back to a home that was set away from the crowd. It was a great time for
2 more weeks to just rest, walk the grounds and sleep.
Stop looking and book this home! The big island is absolutely beautiful and this home is breathtaking! While most places have a small lot or are simply a condo in tourist ridden strips, this property is tucked away on the hillside overlooking the water with sunset views and a HUGE garden full of fruit trees. It's about a 10-15 minute drive to all amenities, restaurants, and the beach. My wife and I stayed there and found it to be the perfect retreat after a day of sunbathing at the beach and exploring the island's volcanoes. You get an authentic local feel in a quiet neighborhood, but yet a short drive from tourist attractions. Truly the perfect mix!
We stayed 6 days and right from the start the owners were friendly, accommodating, and even helped with our airline accidentally sending our luggage to the wrong island. Kyra and Amber (the property managers) stay onsite in separate housing and were there for any questions we had...although we tried not to be too pesky.
The home is private, in the perfect location, has STUNNING views, and very quiet. We absolutely loved the sound of so many exotic birds chirping in the mornings, the cool breeze throughout the day, and the many colors painted in the sky as we watched the sun dip below the horizon over the water each evening. Whether you're looking for a home to retreat to after lots of adventurous exploring, or simply a quite oasis for a restful vacation, this place will not let you down. It certainly has a lot to offer that even the luxury resorts can't live up to.
My wife and I highly recommend staying here! You won't be disappointed.
A lovely, private, welcoming home with most accommodating owners.
Not our first visit and certainly won't be our last. This is a lovely home with exceptional privacy. Beautiful sunsets, wonderful grounds with abundant fruit and gorgeous plants and flowers. An inviting and comfortable solar heated pool. All the comforts of home for cooking, barbecuing, and laundry facilities. A peaceful getaway from the busy tourist areas, but with quick and easy access. Mahalo, Kyra & Amy for another outstanding stay! Can't wait til our next visit.
Aloha Norma, It was our pleasure to host you once again! Thank you for your kind words regarding your stay. You are most welcome and we look forward to your next visit!
Holualoa is a quaint artist's community set in prime Kona coffee country. If you tire of the wonderful ocean/beach activities, golf and shopping, enjoy any of the activities located nearby. Coffee plantation tours, surf school, deep sea fishing, volcano viewing, or just relaxing by the pool. Be as active as you like, or, simply enjoy the peace and quiet of the 2 acres of botanical gardens that surround our vacation home.
