This spot is tucked away in a residential area high up on the hill overlooking Kona. Walking down to the cottage, equivalent to about 2 stories, brings you to a charming little abode. Once inside, the place is immaculate, beautifully furnished and comfortable as can be. Large kitchen area fully equipped except for a stove and oven (required, I'm sure) but many ways to prepare food available. Bed is super comfortable, towels labeled as to his and hers, refrig stocked with condiments for cooking, and every detail attended to. The lanai has many seating options, with a partially obscured view of the ocean, but quite thrilling. Nice place to read and relax. Large open area to the side which allows for bird watching, not to mention the occasional pig or cat. It was very quiet and peaceful---the best night's sleep on the island.
When we arrived, we were escorted to our accommodations by Dolores, the owner. She explained we needed to remove our shoes before entering, and she gave us a 15 minute tour, telling us which switches went to which light, etc. Again, many details were given as she sat on the sofa asking if we had questions. This cottage was recently refurbished and excellently executed.
Breakfast was on the lanai, 2 stories up. Lovely location. Dolores takes pride in providing a lovingly prepared meal. And she sat with us while we ate, telling awesome tales. Later, as we prepared for the beach, she offered everything we needed to make the day excellent. Dolores, 85, enjoys her guests and gives them every comfort.
