Property description

Mauna Lea (Mountain Joy) Manor is a 5 acre private estate tucked away in the Kona Coffee country on the slopes of Hualalai volcano, overlooking the small coastal town of Kailua-Kona. On this property there are 4 cottages available rent. Each cottage is a one bedroom studio with a loft and one bathroom.

Also on the property there is a dance/yoga studio you may use or attend classes (private/group). We also have a fishing/snorkel boat called the Kahele available for charter. There is a playground with swings and a rope swing in the forrest behind the houses… there are ancient Hawaiian ruins in the forrest and a big bamboo grove that we call 'the temple' because it is a 20 ft diameter circle of bamboo that feels like a sacred place. We also have several surfboards, bodyboards, and snorkel gear available for you to borrow when you stay with us.

Our family lives on the property in the Manor house. We have three boys who love to play with other children. My husband is a fisherman/cement mason and I am a local artist and I also teach art & dance. If you enjoy dancing, I am happy to connect you with the fun places to go and the interesting people to meet in our local dance community (tango, zouk, salsa, bachata, bellydance, ballroom, etc.). As we both grew up on this island, we are happy to share with our guests the best places to find and if available, we are happy to be your guides to black/green/white sand beaches, waterfall lagoons, the best fishing spots, etc. My husband is also a really fabulous chef and loves to feed people from the unique bounty of our island.

Our property is the ideal set up for retreats and workshops. If you have a group of 20 or less people interested in a dance/art/yoga/photography/etc worksop/retreat- we have the classroom for your educational classes and the beds for your participants all on property. We can set up meals, activities, and even a photographer to document your experience with enough notice. These 'camp'-like experiences can be a lot of fun and we make the planning as effortless for you as possible (different fees might apply for this kind of group experience).
