Multiple cabins and home with camping options available on a 5 acre farm above kailua kona in a cool elevation away from the heat in town. These accommodations are simple and affordable with differing price ranges. The location is very conveniently located to the airport and town about 4 miles. Its very private an quite. There is a a stocked kitchen with farm produce and basic meal preparation ingredients. There are coastline views and the sunsets are amazing.
I have lived here in kona almost my whole life, i went to grade school through high school here. I enjoy living off the land eating as much from the farm as possible while recycling everything in effort to leave a small foot print on the earth. I love to body board when the waves are up and spend time at the beach on my spare time if I'm not to busy working on the farm.
malachi prince purchased this cabin in 2000
Its up the mountain where it is a lot cooler than town and it is agricultural land where i can grow things and have privacy from neighbors, its all so very quite and peaceful up here far enough away from the traffic. I have always loved this area while growing up and it is one of the most desirable places to live on the big island!
There is food from the farm for you to sample and eat here. Very close to town ,airport, shopping and the best beaches on the island are all about a ten minute drive away. There are spectacular sunset views here along with awesome ocean/coastline veiws
My husband and I booked this for ourselves and our 3 children to start of our family moon. Being that when we got there and the owner had no idea of who we were and what we wanted, we quickly figured it out and found that the owner had been gone for about 10 days and never got a reminder we were coming.? After arriving we went to our room which we could not sleep all 5 of us as stated before arriving, so we paid another $200.00 for the room up the stairs from us for our two older boys (14 & 9), after we slept through the first night we woke up and spent the entirety of our next day cleaning both of our rooms. Something I was Not informed I had to do myself. Not only that but the laundry wasn't even being done with detergent. We went about our time due to how Beautiful the grounds of this farm was, it was nice to wake up and go into the community kitchen and have coffee. The problem there was the fact that I don't think one thing had been properly cleaned nor put away, the whole kitchen was a drop zone for all misc. stuff, very uneasy on the eyes, and stomach when you think about eating in this kitchen. The next few days we just woke up and left immediately to try and enjoy the start of our trip, which we did! The location in Kona is pretty perfect. The shower is a joke, I am pretty sure that I can get more water pressure out of a water balloon with a small hole in it, and not only that but "hot water" really means take a shower at the hottest part of the day so you have some "warm" water. Around the 6th day the owner began to become Very Rude and with no care whom he did this in front of (my Children). This was when my husband and I chose that this was enough and we packed everything we had and moved to a hotel for the night.
I had booked our stay here a few months ago for one night as our flights changed and we had to arrive a day sooner. When I booked we were given information on how to get here. I explained we would arrive around 11pm and we're told it was fine and just to come and we'll be shown around. When we arrived we were greated by two dogs, we walked around in the dark with a flashlight and couldn't find any lights on or anyone here. We called out and went to each hut and nothing. We left and found a hotel room. When we got to the hotel we saw we had an email saying to call when we arrived unfortunately being on vacation and not from the US we had no phones or email to call. Had we been given this information prior to leaving and coming we may have been able to make arrangements. We're now out the money we paid for a one night stay that we didn't even stay at and had to fork over more money to stay at a hotel. Overall very bad experience and have yet to hear back from the owner. If you need a place to stay for the night just book a hotel.
I enjoyed the place, a working farm. Malachi the owner was great host , good stories, plan on returning? Yes
I would not go there again or refer it to anyone. I didn't stay around there & only just slept there because I had paid the amount & couldn't get it back. It is not a place I would recommend. The location was good but not what I was told it was not in the area I was told but 5 miles from it which in Kona is more than you think. The pictures were of the rooms but did not give much of a picture of the surroundings. The cleanliness & facilities of the place was also very much to be desired extremely poor. Sure could use a cleaning. The owner was nice but had to clean the room more before I could move into the room. The bed I don't think was even changed because it was dirty & only the bottom sheet not both sheets. There is so much more to say but don't stay there. This site is not working because I would not even give it a star.
Let's just say, I've missed it since we left. We will definitely be back! Great host, Malachi (Ki). Very accommodating, comfy cabin and bed. Everyone enjoyed it. Fresh fruit, sweet little animals and good company. It isn't for everyone I know, but if you like simple life, glamping, camping and Mother Earth--you will love it. Met another super nice guy there, Christian who was working and staying there. Very positive experience. If my sweet hubby wouldn't have messed up and rented another place with no refund--we would have stayed. We preferred it to the touristy Kona location. We will see you soon hopefully Ki!
My wife and I stayed in a great bungalo up in one of the most beautiful parts of Kona here. We got to be part of the island, close to downtown but far enough away that we felt like we were really seeing Hawaii not just a hotel or resort. The property is right at the beginning of the coffee growing region and is near many awesome coffee plantations. The owner, Malachi, is a really nice, knowledgeable person who will be happy to give you fresh organic fruit grown on his farm. We had a great time and defInitely recommend it to anyone looking to have an awesome vacation in Kona.
