Situated on the western side of the island at a cool 1300ft elevation, this is a small cottage suitable for two people. Privacy is the key word.

This is a quiet, clean, peaceful place with A/C, near the airport, town + beautiful beaches located in a safe, affluent neighborhood.

After the lava eruption on the other side of the island in 2018 subsided, we are now thrilled to have the best air quality and blue skies since 2007!

The space
Suitable for 1 single person or a couple. Lovely room with sliding glass door opening to a private deck to sit and enjoy the birds and all year-round tropical climate. Keep in mind that with any place you stay in Kona, if you are at LESS than 1000 ft, it’s a hot and humid. We are at 1300 ft - just perfect.

Guest access
The cottage is turn key ready and self check-in. As you have seen in the pictures, it is one room with a kitchenette with dishware and utensils, sink, microwave, gas grill, ceiling fan, plus a separate bathroom with hot water shower, sink and WC. Lovely deck to sit and relax. The cottage is WiFi ready.

This private, stand-alone building is always accessible without us being home.

Arrival times to the cottage can be late and we don't mind it. Early arrivals are difficult for us because the cottage is so popular and we need the time to clean it.

As a general rule check-in is after 3:00 pm and check-out at or before 11:00 am.

Other things to note
All paper products and linens are included.

Our day usually starts around 10am, then we are pretty much available all day and late into the night unless we are working.

We do sincerely care about the quality of your stay, so please text us if you need to and we will respond ASAP. We are very grateful you booked with us and want to be good hosts.

We ask that you closely abide by our 11:00 AM checkout time because the cottage is becoming very popular and we need that time in between to clean it for our next guests.

If you like hiking, remember to bring heavy duty hiking boots, with thick, rigid soles. You will be glad you did. Also, bring a rain jacket. You will need it at some point when you explore the Tropical Rainforest. If you plan to visit the summit of Mauna Kea, bring a pair of long pants and a warm jacket. On the summit it is quite cold in Hawaii, (sometimes complete with snow) at 13,796 feet above sea level.

Location

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, United States

Our neighborhood is safe and quiet. We have one neighbor across the driveway, but everyone else is with good distance. All properties are 1 acre big, and you can reach our street with two turns from an important connecting road.

It takes 7-10 minutes to/from the airport, 15-20 minutes to "downtown" Kailua-Kona and 15 minutes to a spectacular beach.

There is a convenience store called Matsuyama a few blocks away for you to get comfort food fast. Safeway is 15 minutes away.

Aloha! I came to Hawaii in 1998 as a tourist, and never really left. I am originally from Germany, so we are a two language household. My husband James has lived on-island since 1991. We love to share the beauty of this incredible Big Island, there is so much to explore and see that is spectacular and amazing. A visit to Hawaii Island also tends to have a healing affect on people as they experience the unique, natural beauty all around them. We are ocean lovers, passionate Manta Ray Advocates*, and are happy to share our knowledge of the island with you as if you were friends or family. We can steer you towards tour operators who know what they are doing and also to those little know activities that are self-guided and free. Airbnb is venture for us, but we have 12 years of experience of sharing our additional rooms in the main house (the upstairs of our Tropical Treasure). We've created a great space and are confident about our ability to host you. We tend to give our guests lots of space and privacy, but we are readily available if you need us or have questions. * We would love to show you the mantas rays if you are an adventurous ocean lover. Inquire :)

During your stay
We aim to be home to welcome you if possible, unless it’s late night or early in the am. If not, we will discuss a plan with you as to where to get the key.

Generally we will distance ourselves from the cottage [itself] out of respect for your privacy, but we are usually home. Our primary means of communication is text, but do call us if you need to.

The beauty of our cottage is that you are NOT in a “fish bowl”. We cannot see or hear you, nor will we be aware of when you come and go. It’s designed and situated to be private. We have insulated the building, so if you close the windows, it’s very quiet.
