Kona Koffee Plantation Adventure

  • 3 of 5

This studio apartment was much more spacious and neatly outfitted than it appeared in on-line photos. The location offered a beautiful view (from the driveway) of the coastline below, as well as manicured tropical plantations all around. Only 6 miles from downtown Kailoa-Kona and 2.5 from the retro feeling village of Holualoa. Many beautiful beaches and Farmer's Markets nearby. The bed was comfortable, the fan kept us cool enough.

There were the following Issues: The space is very humid and it smelled of mildew (no dehumidifier available).

We hadn't been told beforehand that the TV was only for Netflix and other streaming services, not for regular viewing (CBS, ABC, etc).

Three out of 4 devices available to cook food (hot plate, induction oven and toaster) all required a specially designed outlet, which was hidden from view on kitchen counter.

Nobody mentioned that wild turkeys roamed the property and had the disconcerting habit of pooping all over the lanai, including on its table and chairs; when I asked the owner about this, I was told to wave them away & not worry. She did NOT mention that there was a hose around side of house that we could use to wash away the voluminous bird droppings.

Other than that, we enjoyed out stay.

Hawaiian Hideaway Amidst the Coffee Bean Groves

  • 5 of 5

First off, the property was easy to find and drive to from the airport (the advent of smart phones with map apps helps immensely). The property is located high in the hills above Kailua-Kona, and, again from the airport, Costco is on the way to it and a Safeway Grocery Store is nearby as well. It is secluded, away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy spots. The tranquility is lovely. It is amazing, however, how many birds are singing. At night all of nature comes alive with "noise" (bugs, birds, cows mooing, horses neighing). It is probably 10 degrees cooler than at the shore and it rains more, but that just means the area is lusher and greener. Very beautiful. The studio is well maintained with wi-fi and Netflix, which was fantastic. The closet is very spacious and all the amenities, such as a washer/dryer, are very nice. If you want to experience a more serene, authentic Hawaiian getaway instead of being with the visitors in the cookie cutter timeshares in Waikoloa or with all the confused tourists in cramped Kailua-Kona town, this is the place for you. Also, the price is outstanding.

This place is awesome! The best word to describe the coffee palace is quality because everything about it is like 5 star lodging. The requirements of a comfortable bed and a clean space are obviously there, but there is so much more. The kitchen equipment is superb quality and was perfect for preparing meals, I plan to upgrade some of my kitchen equipment to what I found here. The 4 qt. stainless steel triple clad pan/wok was great for making single pot meals. The flat bottom with high walls is a great design that I have never found in cookware, maybe because it was made in Brazil. The pyrex set with high quality silicone sealed gasket lids was perfect for taking leftovers in the cooler to the beach the next day, or baking a fritta in. The Breville convection toaster oven was the best I have ever used and will be upgrading mine to that brand/model. Every little detail was perfect all the way to the floor mat for standing on while doing the dishes, I never knew those could be so comfortable (now I need that kind at home also). To add to the new things I will be buying is a whole new line of personal care products. Discovering the “Personal Paradise” product line of shampoo and body lotion was something I never expected to find at vacation lodging, but was waiting for me to try here. The coconut fragrance is heavenly and all the ingredients are natural, no chemicals. Clearly everything about the owners Beth and Roger is of the highest quality and it shows in everything they have done for this place. The artwork, light fixtures, granite counter tops, bathroom fixtures and even the wood molding is just so tastefully done and much nicer than what I have at home, I was living like a millionaire (lol). And beyond all this the highlight of my vacation I found in a place I least expected, the porch/lanai right outside my door, which by the way had the nicest and most comfortable patio furniture I have ever seen. But, it was the acoustics of the place that made it for me. I explore places all over Utah and Arizona looking for canyons and coves to enhance the sound of my native american flute, I have never found anything close to the sound I found here. What a huge surprise! Thanks so much Beth and Roger for creating and sharing such an island paradise!

Up Country Coffee Farm Studio

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Roger and Beth's Holualoa studio for two weeks. The studio is exactly as advertised. It suited our needs very well. Perfect for a single person or a couple. Beth was very responsive to the few questions we had.

If you are looking for a quiet place away from the tourist atmosphere of town, then this is the place for you. You will need a car, as it is a solid 20 minutes to Kona. This property is up country, so the weather is cooler than at sea level - be sure to pack a hoodie.

During our stay, we had work to complete, which required internet connectivity. The internet is very reliable with very good speeds.

The only slight downside is the small size of the refrigerator, a mini. We would have cooked many more meals at the studio if the refrigerator was bigger, but the small size made meal planning challenging. Otherwise, the kitchen (actually, the entire studio) is well stocked with everything you'll need during your stay. The washer/dryer is a welcomed convenience too.

Many extras for your use and convenience: beach chairs, cooler, beach towels, reuseable shopping bags, laundry detergent, paper towels, bathroom toiletries etc.

Highly recommended!
