Serene retreat cottage in a native Hawaiian forest, just 5 miles from Kailua Kona. Wake up with the song birds and a gorgeous tropical garden setting with orchids and tropical flowers everywhere. This retreat cottage is located in a gated three-acre property in an upscale Kona neighborhood. There are good roads for a normal car. No 4-wheel drive is needed. Private entrance and private parking. The retreat cottage is totally private from the street and from the main house. Cool Hawaiian cloud forest on Hualalai mountain at 2200′ elevation. It is wonderful to come back to the cool mountain air after a day at the beach or in hot sun of Kailua-Kona, to a lovely cottage room surrounded by trees. (People really appreciate it!) Enjoy a leisurely morning cup of Kona coffee and look at the Atlas of Hawaii, Birds of Hawaii, Fish of Hawaii and other reference books and magazines. This is a local Hawaiian experience. You are away from the tourist condos and hotels, but centrally located to everything; snorkling, beaches, shopping, restaurants, movie theatres, hiking.
Feel free to explore all of the gardens, where you will see hundreds of orchids, fruit trees, and native forest species. Use the Buddhist meditation hall and make yourself at home on the property. You will see many tropical flowers, orchids, and trees at this Hawaiian tree nursery. We keep bees, ask us about Hawaiian Honey. Five miles to beaches, Kailua town (restauraunts and shopping), and airport.
