Overview

About the property

Large Ocean View, Large Gardens, Quiet, Perfect Elevation, Fragrant

Drenched in sunlight and fifteen minutes from the beach, Mango Cottage is a Bali inspired retreat nestled on the slope of the now dormant volcano, Hualalai. The house has a large private yard filled with tropical plants, fragrant flowers, outdoor sitting areas and private hot tub. It is situated on a quiet single lane in a peaceful old neighborhood, complete with meandering turkeys and the wild parrots that occasionally visit the adjacent mango tree.

From the door of Mango Cottage to the crystal waters of Kua Bay is a 15-minute drive and another few minutes delivers you to the renowned beaches of the Kohala Coast. It’s just a quick 10-minute drive to Kailua-Kona where you will find supermarkets, a natural foods store, restaurants and other trappings of “Town.” There is much to explore from this central location and we are happy to share our life-long local knowledge.

Mango Cottage has been restored with new flooring, many windows, an efficient kitchen, and a lanai for relaxing outdoor living. Float in the hot tub and enjoy the Hawaiian starry night. The lush gardens surround the home and the feeling of separateness between outdoors and in is minimal. Mango Cottage is gated and private, offers WiFi, a dishwasher, and two flat screen TV's. A washer and dryer are available and in-house maid service is available upon request during your stay. The bedding and queen size mattress, including the additional single day bed in the living room, are high quality for a comfortable sleep amidst the tropical breezes and sounds of the distant water feature. Views from the house include the ocean and a park like setting, perfect to witness the green flash moment.

The concept of the space is to provide a totally serene indoor/outdoor experience with all the luxury of good, comfortable design mixed with Indonesian antiques and art. It is perfect for your Hawaiian vacation and to re-charge all of your senses… enjoy!

About Christine

We have lived in Kona for thirty-five years and have called Hawaii our home! Our property has been a labor of love and we are delighted to offer the cottage as a vacation rental. My husband and I are now retired and spend much of our time in the garden, creating jewelry, or traveling to California to visit our grandchildren.

Christine purchased this house in 1986

Why Christine chose Kailua-Kona

The cottage, which is privately situated on it's own 1/4 acre of tropical gardens, large lawn area, beautiful sunsets, water feature and hot tub to relax and watch the stars.

What makes this house unique

I take enormous joy in landscaping and gardening. I've planted many fragrant plants and trees along with fruit trees. The interior decorations and many of the garden statues are inspired by Indonesia. The property is very private, not your usual tourist flare!

We are 8 minutes from the Kailua-Kona airport and 10 minutes to Kona town. If you drive 15 minutes in the other direction, you are at renowned beaches of the Kohala Coast 'Kua Bay'. We are close to everything and yet feel worlds away from it all.

So amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was just incredible, I felt like I was staying in my own little piece of a botanical garden. The yard was my favorite part, it was so peaceful with all the birds, butterflies and beautiful flowers. The hot tub was awesome to relax in, and although we never used it there was a grill that would have been great to have a cookout with. The space is incredibly private feeling even though there are other houses around you. There is a deck overlooking the yard with a view all the way to the ocean that feels like an extension of the living space. I enjoyed having breakfast out there every morning with my kitty visitor. The house itself has everything you need for a great stay including lots of beach equipment. I wish I could have stayed longer, it is one of my favorite places I have ever rented!

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Mango cottage for three days with my teenage kids, and couldn't be happier about it! Christine is a very accommodating host; the cottage itself is small but cute and well supplied with all the basics; the gardens surrounding the cottage are a pure delight--my daughter an I spent several hours just walking around and checking out all the plants and decorations. The hot tub was a great place to relax in the evening, and my kids had fun taking pictures of geckos. We've checked out several beaches, both up north (Hapuna) and right in the area itselff (Kua Bay)--a very easy drive from the cottage, and lots of beach equipment at the house. Thanks a lot, Christine!

An idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

While everyone else may have been scared off by a little volcanic activity, we were able to enjoy this beautiful house and its grounds. Christine couldn't have been more lovely and accommodating, and made the visit a joy and a very memorable trip. Somehow the location feels both close to everything in Kona, but miles and miles away.

Absolute charm and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Mango cottage is a lovely island getaway home. Private and yet convenient by car.

The island is lovely with varied terrains.

We arrived the day they closed the Volcano National Park due to its recent activity and now have another good reason to visit in the future. The island was business as usual.. no reason to stay away.

There was so much to do, with gorgeous beaches, excellent snorkeling at Captain Cooks monument, spinning dolphins, waterfalls, and a once in a lifetime swim with rare manta rays.

Thank you Christine and Bobby for the warm hospitality. We will be back!

Aloha!

Amazing place.

Christine is a great host. She had the hot tub ready and house open and clean. Beautiful views. Lots of privacy. Our only regret is we didn’t stay longer.
