Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Kailua Kona - Kona Mountain Home & Cottage

Perfect for any traveler looking for fun filled days & private, peaceful nights.

Kona Mountain Home & Cottage is a unique plantation style estate located on 3 acres on the slopes of Hualalai above Kailua-Kona. It is in Hawaii's serene cloud forest and is walking distance from hike/bike/horseback riding trails through the Honuaula Forest Reserve. Upstairs the home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, an open kitchen/dining/living area, fireplace, a private lanai off a guest bedroom, and an expansive lanai with access from kitchen, living room, and master bedroom. Downstairs is a large open deck with a Hot Spot hot tub, a BBQ grill, and workout/game room. A separate dwelling, our Ohana, adds 2 more beds, a kitchenette, outdoor/indoor shower, and lanai.

Kona Mountain Home allows for full days between guests - this gives our staff a chance to make sure the home is in perfect condition for your arrival, and it gives you a later check out/earlier check in than most properties. Check Out is now 12 pm and Check In is 2 pm.

More than a just a house...: Kona Mountain Home offers guests the ultimate vacation experience while also giving a feeling of being home. Our family's dream came true and we hope to share this piece of paradise with you. Our guests don't need to worry about long lines to rent a kayak, or buying/bringing beach chairs, or packing bulky beach towels and coolers in their luggage. Some of our onsite adventure amenities are: Kayaks, Paddle Boards, Beginner Surf Board, Body Boards, Beach towels, Snorkel Gear, Coolers, Water Coolers, Chairs, & Shade Canopies. Through out KMH you will enjoy unique touches that make our home special, and you will feel the comfort that only quality details can give. KMH offers a beautiful, intimate setting for any couple, family, and/or friends to enjoy a special retreat as unique as Hawaii itself.

More about our home... The living room, master and guest bedroom have flat panel TV's with DISH satellite (full package including HBO, Cinemax, and Starz). The master bedroom is furnished with antiques (including an 1870 English Queen Bed), a large bay window, and access to the spacious lanai. The master bath has dual sinks, a soaking tub, and a glass shower. The guest bedroom has a private lanai and beautiful teak furnishings, including a queen size bed. The second guest room has a full and twin bed. Dining tables on the lanai and in the house allow for indoor or outdoor meals. The comfy new sectional sofa (with a queen size sleeper) makes it easy to cozy up for a movie after a fun day of adventure. The bright, open kitchen is cooking paradise and is stocked with stainless steel service ware, pots & pans, and long stem wine glasses. Appliances include a 5 burner gas stove, side by side stainless steel refrigerator, Cuisinart coffee maker, coffee grinder, Kitchenaid stand mixer, large microwave, & toaster. A new small washer and dryer are located on the second floor near the bedrooms and a full size new washer & dryer are located in the garage (very convenient for cleaning up after coming in from the beach). Recently added, is an outdoor shower near the hot tub. The shower has both hot and cold water and is perfect for rinsing after the beach.

About Laura Weaver

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

Why Laura Weaver chose Kailua Kona

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Paradise in the Rainforest

  • 5 out of 5
My girlfriend and I recently enjoyed a wonderful Hawaiian getaway at the Kona Mountain Home. The space was very inviting and comfortable; it truly felt like home away from home. The location is a 15 minute drive away from Kailua-Kona, which is the perfect distance to escape and enjoy the serenity the space offers.

Between the ample equipment for water sports, lanai, hot tub, and grill, we felt like we had choices at our fingertips each morning as we planned out our day. The amenities are of a very high quality, and the space is very neat and clean.

I would highly recommend a stay at the Kona Mountain Home for your next visit to the islands. Especially if you are looking for a private getaway within striking distance of popular destinations on the Big Island.

Nice Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
This place is amazing. When we arrived we were blown away by just how big the property is. Standing on the lanai and taking in the view was our favorite part of the stay. The greatest thing about this place is that it's up on the mountain and feels very secluded, yet at any time you are only 15 minutes away from the city amenities. Normally we pay for activities to do while on the island. This trip we spent $0 on activities. We used their stand-up paddle board, longboard, kayak, snorkels, hot tub, bath tub, we hiked local trails, and the workout room. They have internet and a flat screen. Everyday we did not plan anything. We spent the morning on the lanai relaxing and would decide what to do that day. Stress-free and just what we were hoping for. Thanks for taking care of us!

Absolutely in love with this place!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Kona Mountain Home for a week, in the main house & the cottage. This home is exactly as the photos show, but even more beautiful in person! All of the small details, décor, extremely comfortable bedding, mattresses made it hard for us to leave! KMH is an absolute dream home and we hope to return again some day! We got married in the backyard and couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting to do a small wedding. We used the lava stone staircase between the main house & Ohana as our "aisle" and were married on the bottom step, as our friends and family looked on from the grass area. There was no noise from cars or planes or neighbors. The lanai was more than spacious for our guests during the reception.

Laura was extremely helpful in the months before our visit. She answered numerous questions for me, both about the house and Kona in general. I really appreciated her assistance and the way she responded very quickly each time. I can tell she loves this area and home and is pleased to share it with others:)

Gudrun, the property manager was a real gem too! She was very helpful as well and very friendly! She came by one day and we actually chatted for quite some time. I could see us all being friends if we lived there.

This house has everything you could need and more! Decorative dishes & containers, food in the pantry, fireplace, baby highchair & cribs, books to read, toiletries you may have forgotten, ample towels & linens, and beach gear galore! Make sure to enjoy that hot tub! Nothing like sitting in it after a long day exploring, and gazing up at the stars! The area around the house is nice for a short walk. And Mountain Thunder Coffee is like 2 minutes away. Cool breezes, quiet nights, beautiful home...the only down side to KMH was having to leave.

Family of 6 loved this place

  • 5 out of 5
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.
