This is the perfect home base.

Feel the sun in your eyes, sand between your toes and surf at your feet. Here you will find no crowds, no tall buildings, no loud noises. Kick back, loosen that tie and put up your feet. Have a glass of wine, cold beer or some sweet tea on this endless panoramic ocean view. Go to bed at night and hear the natural sounds of crickets, wake up to the most beautiful sunrises anywhere.

Go for an early beach walk

with your tasty kona coffee as you prepare to swim with dolphins. What a way to start the morning! Seven Acres of Pristine Kona Coffee, Macadamia Nuts and all kinds of Tropical Fruit, pick your breakfast. End your day with a refreshment from the garden kitchen/ bar and enjoy some of the best views on island.

Truly the antidote to civilization.

A great location that offers many options for experiencing the Big Island's natural diversity. Just 4 miles from the closest place to jump in the ocean and 10-minutes to Hookena Beach State Park for sunbathing and swimming with dolphins.

Swim With Dolphins.

A 20-minute drive brings you to the famous Puuhonua o'Honaunau (Place of Refuge) National Historic Park and Kealakekua Bay where you can kayak to Captain Cook's monument and snorkel with an endless variety of tropical fish and sea turtles & dolphins.

Kilauea Worlds most Active Volcano.

Best of all, only 60-minutes from Madame Peles live action at Volcanos National Park. There is also an 2.5 mi hike to beautiful undeveloped shoreline on the property to undeveloped shoreline as its been for over 200,000 years.

Hideaway Is Its Value

  • 5 of 5

The gate says South Kona Coffee Estate and Retreat. This really is a retreat setting. The electric gate swings shut behind you and you're secure in the cultivated jungle setting of South Kona Coffee. Four houses and three cottages are scattered privately throughout the coffee, macademia, papaya, mango, and other flowering and fruit bearing cultivations. Well cared for. Isolated but Secure. Peaceful. If you're looking for Waikiki, it's not. If you're looking for seclusion you've found it.

One note: I stayed in the Honu Cottage for a week. There is a view of the ocean but it's somewhat limited by the foliage. I didn't consider it a negative but wouldn't want anyone to be disappointed, thinking it's going to be a beachfront style view.

Oh, and by the way. The Honu Cottage has a built in sauna that is awesome!

This garden of eden, food forest, Hawaii bliss is a must stay. Delicious avocados, bannanas, papayas, mac nuts are ready to pick at your pleasure. Our Dolphin Cottage was perfect for our stay, with the outdoor kitchen. Brad is the embodiment of "Aloha Spirit," a wealth of info & provided answers to all our questions. He has a completely natural approach to developing his paradise & it is all organic. Their coffee is the best!

We had a GREAT time!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful place. They had everything we needed. They knew all the places we should hit. The location was good; not a long drive to get to the many sites the Big Island has to offer.

The property is absolutely stunning.

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED staying with Brad and Linda at South Kona Coffee. The location is spectacular. Brad and Linda are freindly and helpful hosts. The accomodations are basic yet comfortable. We had fruit and nuts in abundance during our stay. We will be staying with them again.

Relaxing time away from the bustle

  • 5 of 5

Brad and Linda were very helpful and welcoming. The cottage is a unique space with a super comfortable bed. We enjoyed hearing the rain drum on the roof and also using the outdoor kitchen for our meals. The fresh fruit from the farm was spectacular and we loved cracking our own macadamia nuts. The cottage is closer to the main road than we anticipated so one could hear traffic at times, but it's still very relaxed. We enjoyed walking partway down the path on the adjacent lava field -- the noisiness of the jungle recedes as you walk further into the silence of the lava field. It's quite a remarkable contrast!

Relax to the max!

  • 5 of 5

The Whale cottage is awesome. My girl & myself enjoyed our stay so much that we did not want to ever leave! The area is very clean & well maintained. The owners Brad & Linda are very attentive to any of your needs & respond quickly to any questions you may have. My girlfriend & I have veg/vegan diets & found many options locally. Also within 20 minutes you may find yourself swimming with the dolphins. Also down the road is one of the beautiful botanical gardens in the world, a MUST see! However we found ourselves choosing most days to simply relax to the max in the cottage. We will recommend this tropical paradise to all of our friends as we also intend to return soon🐬
