About Jim Martin
We had been coming to South Kona for 15 years when we acquired the property early in 2013. We have been residents for three years, now. Jim is a retired theatre artist/social worker/educator/student, and Terry owns his own business in international shipping. Jim stays more or less permanently in South Kona, while Terry is still working. He comes and goes regularly. We have a 6-year old dog, Kona. She came over from LA over two years ago, and she is now a local girl.
Jim Martin purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Jim Martin chose Honaunau-Napoopoo
We fell in love with South Kona and the expansive views of the coast and the sea - as well as the myriad of activities the area presents. We bought a lot very close to the house and cottage and are considering expanding the orchard. We are not only the happy owners of a beautiful Hawaiian home, but we are mango farmers, tending a 30-tree mango orchard on our property.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are in an ideal location for R&R after a day of Big Island activities - whatever your pleasure, be it snorkeling or diving in Kealakekua or Honaunau Bay, cycling, hiking, sight-seeing, coffee tasting or just experiencing Aloha! The area is very quiet and we have lovely neighbors. We are two drives down from Napo'opo'o Road so road noise is non-existent. We are surrounded by birds and lush vegetation. Kona polices the property, and keeps the wild chickens and turkeys away - usually. They can be brazen.

Perfect, Clean, and Restful.
We could not have asked for a better place to rest our heads. Jim was an amazing host and our pad was super clean and adorable. We had everything we needed.
Come back anytime - you guys were model guests. I only wish our weather had been more cooperative!!
Very clean and modern
We loved the pineapple cottage. It was so peaceful and the cottage was extremely clean. The cottage had everything we needed.
Jim and Terry were very helpful with their tips. And we loved the dogs!
Come back anytime!
Great little cottage
We loved the cottage! It was a great place to use as a base for day trips - especially snorkeling.
Jim & Terry were nice hosts and were very generous with information on the area. Love the Big Island!
Come back any time!!
A hui hou!
Great stay, very clean and comfortable for 2 people
Really enjoyed our stay here. Lots of good local advice shared by the host. Clean and well kept.
Lovely - clean , quiet and close to snorkelling!
Nice cosy suite with everything we needed for a great stay. Was nice to have chairs and gear to take to the beach, and we enjoyed the outdoor sitting area.
Clean, comfortable and private
Before I even arrived the communication I received from the owner was excellent and very helpful. Upon arrival I found a lovely cottage with all the essentials for our stay. A trip to get food and we were set. The cottage was comfortable with the multiple windows and ceiling fans keeping it a wonderful temperature. Outside you are surrounded by many lovely trees and plants.
The only downside would be the lack of cellular service. If you use the same provider as the owner they can help with that. Wi-if was spotty. I couldn’t connect inside the cottage but was able to outside. For me I enjoyed being “unplugged”, my travel partner however did not. Most of the island has great service for cellular so connectivity was easy enough when “on the road”.
I’m already looking towards another stay at the Pineapple Patch!
Mahalo Shauna!! Sorry about the cell and internet service. We have learned to live with the occasional dips - and I'm glad it didn't impede your stay!! We hope you had a safe journey back into the cold!!
Aloha - a hui hou!
We are a short drive from beautiful Kealakekua Bay which has world class snorkeling, diving and paddling. Also nearby is Honaunau Bay, which also is a snorkel/dive/paddle mecca. Both Bays abound with dolphin and sea turtles as well as other beautiful marine life. Also located on Honaunau Bay is The City of Refuge (Pu'uhonua O Honaunau) National Historical Park - a link to the past of our Hawaii. Coffee and macadamia farms and mills abound in the area - as well as honey processing operations. There are hiking trails and tour operators who can arrange kayaking in the bays, snorkeling and diving. The views are stunning, and the area is rich in Hawaiian history. We are in nature, so we are surrounded by birds, exotic fruit trees and a bevy of flora.
