About Warren d'Aquin

Scuba Instructor Trainer; West Coast Swing Dancer and Teacher; Farmer. I've lived in Kona for 30 years and know the area well. Anything you are interested in doing or seeing during your stay, just ask!

Warren d'Aquin purchased this farmhouse in 2000

Why Warren d'Aquin chose Honalo

My home is unique because it is located among agricultural farm land and feels private and secure. Yet a shopping center is only 2.5 miles away and Kailua Kona is only 8 miles away.

The property is gated.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Great sunsets; Cool mountain air at night. Large 1200 square foot lanai (deck) over looking the ocean. Partially covered so even if it rains you can enjoy the lanai. The sitting area, lounge chairs and living room set make you want to spend all your time here.

Black Manta Farm was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

View and the concept of a house up at 1500 foot level with modern features but set in Jurassic surroundings. Being away from the main tourist grind but close to everything worked wonderfully for us; was cool in evening as promised, clean, all the comforts. Owners were super helpful. We would love to come back!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

My family was wowed by your very nice home! My husband was a little hesitant at the open windows and view of the master bath (particularly the toilet), but he's very modest:) I loved the tub and had the most relaxing bath ever! We should have scheduled a longer time at this location and you'll definitely be on our list for a return visit. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Secluded and close to everything. This is the best vrbo we've stayed in to date.

As a Broker/Property Manager myself that also handles vacation rentals, I must say this property was a great find!

Close, but not to close to all the busyness in town.

Home was clean and had many staple items that were a plus during our stay. Including some very fun dish ware that we used for dinner when grilling out on the lanai celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.

Owner is great to work with and Elaine, property host, was very hands on.

Thanks again for sharing this great place with us.
