Great home, with great amenities !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this home, it was perfect for 3 couples. All three rooms had queen beds. Everything you need they had at the home, including kitchen appliances. There were beach towels, umbrellas & even snorkeling gear to use. We had a great time & would definitely return to stay in this home.

Great house for a family staying in Kona

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location. Everything is easy to get to. The house was stocked with absolutely everything we needed for a long stay. Yukiko and her husband were extremely nice and responsive. Please note that the upstairs and downstairs are separate units. That worked out really well for our family.

Perfect stay and excellent value

  • 5 of 5

We used the Kona Greenhouse as our 'headquarters' when we relocated to the Big Island two weeks ago. It's perfectly located to run every errand in Kailua-Kona and beyond. Palani Road, Henry Street, Alii or Makala, we were always a quick ride in the rental. Waikoloa and Honokaa to the north or Captain Cook and Ocean View to the south, the Greenhouse was super convenient. So many beaches are close by that I can't imagine a better spot to be.

The TV here is beautiful, but we only turned it on once, as we were usually at the beach. :)

I needed aloe for a sunburn one day. It was here. I needed a printer one day. It was here. The Greenhouse has so many thoughtful appointments. Clean, nicely furnished and bright and cheery, too. We truly lucked out with this property, because we couldn't have asked for a better location or a nicer house to start our new life here on the Big Island.

The house is as cute the pictures shown -- we loved it here and think you will, too.

About Yukiko Northon

Aloha! E Komo Mai! Welcome to our Hale! We are the Northon Family, Jeff, Yukiko, and our children Nicholette, Alyssa and Jason. We have worked together to bring this wonderful house together so that it may be used as a retreat, a vacation house and eventually, Jeff and my permanent residence. We hope to share the love we have for our home with you and give you a chance to experience the wonderful island of Hawai’i.

Why Yukiko Northon chose Kailua-Kona

We purchased this house with the intent to move back to Kona after the kids grew up. The kids are now grown and we are living in Hawai'i and now, and have this wonderful vacation rental. We have remodeled this house for comfort and beauty and want to share it with those that can appreciate Hawai'i and its inhabitants.

What makes this house unique

This house is located in the Highlands where the air is cooler and crisp in the evenings but still warm by mainland standards. It is a place where the *rush* of being on vacation can be let go and one can truly relax to the sounds of nature. Being among the Locals, it is very different than the 'Resort Style' living, coupled with our personalized service, it is by far, the 'best of both worlds'!! This house is a place where dreams are made and realized.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Look no further!! This is the place you will want to stay. Close to everything Kona, great neighborhood and the host is awesome!!

Car: recommended

There are so many wonderful adventures that you can have here in Hawai’i, that it would be difficult to list them all, however, here are a few that we have enjoyed.

1) Dolphin Quest: Take the time to learn all about the dolphins and interact with them. It is fantastic to be able to touch them and learn about them.

2) Kohala Kayak and SUP: Sean, of Kohala Kayak is a wonderful guide and teacher of Stand Up Paddle. He also does Kayak trips and other water activities. He is knowledgeable about the area and is a very patient teacher.

3) ZipLine: This is quite the adventure and very fun.

4) Mauna Kea Observatories: This is a fantastic day trip. Be sure to take the time to adjust to the elevation at the store for at least an hour before continuing up to the Observatory. There are tours available if you do not want to go up yourself.

5) Paleaku Peace Garden: A wonderful place for looking at different plants and scenery. They have a garden representation of the Milky Way, which is pretty cool.

6) Akatsuka Orchid Gardens: This place has an *amazing* collection/display of orchids for sale and display. It’s on the Hilo side of the Island.

7) Hawai’i Tropical Botanical Garden: Located off of Hwy 19 near the Hamakua Coast. The drive going to the garden is also quite beautiful.

Well, there are lots more adventures available, but, half the fun is finding them!

You may also contact Kona Concierge to book and plan other available adventures of your choosing.
