The Holiday of a Lifetime
If you love the hustle and bustle of a busy hotel…
Or you want to stay right at the beachfront, where it’s insufferably hot year-round…
Or maybe you want to be far away from everything, so it takes hours to get to the beach, the airport, or to town?
Then this is not for you.
Where beachfront accommodations stay hot and humid year-round (even in winter!), we’re at 1,300 feet elevation (about 400m). It’s the perfect temperature with a cooling breeze any time of the year.
A place of healing – no hustle and bustle and loud tourists here – we replaced them with peace and calm and the sounds of nature. Our neighborhood is quiet and safe, perfect for relaxing after the abundant activities along the Kona Coast and the Big Island has to offer.
Our location is a perfect starting point for any trips. Only 15 minutes from downtown Kona and one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, and 10 minutes to the airport – from here, you can get about anywhere.
When you choose your accommodation below, you’ll be taken to the page on AirBnB to book.
We’ll get in touch with you within 24-48 hours after your booking to say Hi and make sure you’ve got all the information you need.
Contact us at any time, we aim to reply within hours!

We enjoy mild weather year-round; the days are warm and sunny, during winter at night the temperature can drop to 65 F/18 C.
We aim to be home to welcome you if possible, unless it’s late at night or early in the morning (in which case we will give you instructions to check yourself in). The units are available to you through a keyless lock.
As a general rule, check-in is after 3pm, and check-out is before 11am. We’re happy to make exceptions when needed – just get in touch and ask!
All of our rental units have a private entrance, designted parking, great views and cooking facilities. Please read the description for each unit for specifics.
We generally distance ourselves from guests out of respect for your privacy. However, we live and work at our tropical treasure, so we’re often around. We love sharing our love of manta rays, ocean conservancy and marine life advocacy – so don’t hesitate to ask us about it if you’d like to know more!
If you have questions about the island, where to go and what to do, we’re happy to help. We want you to have an awesome vacation time!
Our primary means of communication is text, but do call us if needed.
“I’ve stayed in many AirBnBs, but I think this was my favorite experience to date. Martina was a warm and welcoming host, and we felt right at home from the very beginning. She even lent us a basket to take our things to the beach! And throughout our stay she was quick to text back when we had questions. The house is WONDERFUL. Cozy beach vibes and yet perfectly neat and crisp. The porch alone was worth the stay for that awesome view! 100% would recommend to a friend. Can’t wait to come back!!”

“This was our first foray to the Big Island, and without knowing much of the area we definitely feel like we had lucked out! Close to Kailua-Kona and Kona Mountain Coffee (we stopped there a LOT), the place was a perfect first stop for all the sunny and water-based activities we wanted to do on the west side. Although many folks may want to be closer to the ocean, being up on the hill above town was nice at night being cooler and quieter away from the noise except the sounds of nature. Really nice set-up they have going on. Both Martina and Jim were accommodating and quick to respond to any questions we had. We even did the Manta Ray tour they run, which was amazing and we definitely recommend.”

“Martina’s place was everything my crew and I could hope for! Beautiful space with ocean view and everything you need (location, privacy, cleanliness, kitchen amenities, and soft coolers for daily use) to enjoy the Kona side of the island. Martina provided us with local tips and was only just a text away if any needs came up. The location to Kona airport (KOA), Costco, Makalawena & Kua beach, and local food/breweries were only about 10-15 mins away! Pro tip: if your crew is interested/considering swimming with the manta rays, Martina is your lady!”
