My family and business reside in Austin, TX... but our hearts are always in Kona, HI. We have loved the island and the waters that surround it for decades. When we visit our 'piece of paradise' we love to snorkel, paddle board, hike, cliff jump, and catch up with our good friends living on the rock.

Laura Weaver purchased this house in 2011

Kona Mountain Home and Cottage is very special... central to Kailua-Kona, easy access to all North and South Beaches, yet so remote the birds are louder than any vehicle traffic. KMH is nestled in the eco-minded development of Kaloko and the forest reserves on the slopes of Hualalai.

More than your run of the mill vacation rental... explore the island like a local. Kayaks and 6 person Hot Tub, Paddle and Surf Boards, Beach chairs and Shade canopies, Coolers and Snorkel gear... all for your use and enjoyment. Play, Explore, Relax @ Kona Mountain Home.

Family of 6 loved this place

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 10-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2014
Pros:
*Beautiful lanai overlooking the jungle and ocean
*Ultra clean and organized
*Surfboard, paddleboard, 5 boogie boards, 4 coolers, 10 pairs of water shoes, all the snorkel stuff needed for 5+, nets, sand toys, and straps to transport the boards on our rented SUV rack...the list goes on. All this the guests can use!! This probably saved us $400+ in rentals for family
*Kitchen had high quality cookware
*Gas fireplace that can be used inside and out
*Furniture that can seat many inside and out (more than our 6)
*Not a touristy part of Kona, much more secluded
*Hut tub that was ultra clean
*Beautiful sunsets on the Lanai
*Internet worked perfectly
*Updated & tasteful décor (not rental quality, much nicer)

Cons:
*Oven didn't work so well for us
*10-15 minute drive up the mountain to the home
*There is a cottage right next to the main home that also gets rented. We didn't need it for our family, but it was rented by another family. The layout of the two homes was positive so the living spaces didn't interact, but if the cottage has people in it that are loud, you would certainly know they were there.

Summary: Incredible experience - Because this is a 2nd home for the owners, and not just a rental property, so many of the small details we already thought of and included. I would highly recommend my friends and family.

Kona Mountain home is an excellent property and is extremely warm and welcoming. Lauren has made the home very comfortable, our families (party of 4 adults, 4 kids) had a superb time. The house decor was great, room sizes comfortable. We enjoyed conversations by fireplace, cooking together in the kitchen & quiet time in hot tub. The kids especially enjoyed the toys, board games & exploring the backyard. The lanai offered great views & lots of seating. We would highly recommend this property, and hope to return here for another visit in the future.

Amazing retreat with terrific support from owner

I could fill up a page with how much we loved this house, but I will suffice to say that we could not have enjoyed our time more. The only challenge we had was the fact that the internet data is limited because it is up the mountain from town and the cable companies have not made it there yet. This is not in any way a knock on the house or homeowners, just something to prepare for if your internet needs are high. The owner was very apologetic about this, but needlessly so in my opinion, because our stay was so wonderful.

The owners could not have been more supportive. It was clean, extremely well-maintained, and its location is perfect. It's much cooler than down in town, so you can drive to the beach 20 minutes away and be in the heat, then retreat to the cool of the forest high on the mountain.

I can't recommend this house enough. I wouldn't be leaving this review because I want the place to myself when I come to Kona, but I wanted to speak the praises of how this operation was run.

My family (7) had the pleasure of staying at Kona Mt. home for 13 nights. The pictures don't do it justice. The view from the lanai is so peaceful with lush beautiful trees, plants, a few goats, a ram, some chickens and the birds are singing all day long. The house was clean, comfortable and the lay out is perfect. Each bedroom is separate and private and all beds were deemed very comfortable. We had the pleasure of using the cottage also and it was perfect for two in our party. We traveled from San Francisco with my 85 yr old father who is 3rd generation from Hilo. The house was laid out perfect for him as well. Easy entry into the house and no stairs to worry about. He had a great time.
We decided to stay on the Kona side as we were scared off by the rain in Hilo. The drive to Hilo was a really nice ride with a stop at the volcano and waterfalls on the way.
The house had everything you need for a great stay. Towels, snorkeling equipment, water shoes and boards were a great addition to have available. We cooked a lot at the house but also enjoyed some really good restaurants in the area. Fish Hopper, Huggos, Lulu's and Big Hawaiian Grill. We had a special occasion to celebrate and went to the Four Seasons for dinner. It was a really nice meal and the view and sunset were amazing. The Luau at the Royal Kona resort was good. Touristy, but the food was good and the entertainment was enjoyable.
My cousin who lives in Kona sent us the magazine, 101 Things to do on the Big Island. It had a lot of great suggestions for things to do in the area.
One of the highlights of the trip was the ride to Panalu'u Black sand beach in Naalehu. It was about 2 hrs North on the road to Hilo. It was so beautiful and worth the drive. Turtles swimming all over the shallow swimming areas.
So if you are skeptical about staying up the road in the Cloud Forest, be assured this is the best part about the house. When it was 90 degrees in town we always knew we had a short ride up Palani road to a cool, comfortable house. My dad appreciated this.
The care taker,Gudren was helpful and gave us great suggestions for spots of interest. She was there in case we had any problems with the house but we didn't have to call her for anything. The owners were easy to deal with and the payment schedule was convenient as well. I have recommended this place to friends who frequent Kona. It is great for family vacations. Will definitely stay again. ALOHA
