Description from owner

About the area

I love being part of the historical Kona coffee growing area of the island. I can watch the coffee cherries mature over the year from the delicate white coffee flowers to the deep red of ripe coffee cherry ready for harvest. I also enjoy the cooler temperatures at our elevation of 1100 feet above sea level. The cottage is a very comfortable place to stay any time of the year.

Getting around

Rainbow Ohana is located only 1/2 mile off the Hawaii Belt Road, which loops around the entire island. Our location is ideal because of easy driving access to both north and south areas of the island. The nearest snorkeling beaches are only 15-20 minutes away and coffee shops, grocery shopping and restaurants are dotted throughout the area.

Getting here

Detailed directions for driving to the cottage are provided to guests following confirmation of their booking.

Interaction with guest

We do not live on the island but have an on-island manager who is happy to field questions from guests and address any concerns that arise during their stay.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We absolutely LOVED the Cottage!! It was the Perfect Place in the Perfect Spot and had the Perfect Climate. It had EVERYTHING we could have possibly needed for the month, from plenty of beach supplies to every kitchen appliance to a comfy bed and to the ever important duct tape and everything in between!!!! It was also spotless, which we really appreciated. It was amazing to be able to walk out your door and have so many varieties of fruit at your fingertips. We had homemade guacamole almost every day and I made banana nut bread with the Bananas and mac nuts from the property!!!!! The Cottage was centrally located on the Island. We took day trips to almost every part of it. We will definitely return to the Big Island and we will definitely stay at the Cottage again!! Beth was wonderful to work with. She answered every question (and I had a lot) and supplied us with info we had not even thought of. You can safely say We Loved It!!! Thank you, Beth!

Reserving accommodations, such as cottages is always a bit risky when done online, but communication was so great and prompt that all that angst was removed. We arrived at the cottage as planned and found it to be delightful. It was clean and well stocked with the essentials. Our stay was everything we hoped for --- ripe bananas at the door, lime trees a few steps away from the porch, and flowers galore. Has a lovely view of the ocean through swaying palm and banana trees. This is NOT a Sheraton Hotel experience. If that is what you are looking for, then this is not for you. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave. Would recommend this Ohana to anyone looking for a cottage rental!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rainbow Ohana cottage. The location was far enough away from Kona to provide a quiet, relaxing setting, but not so far that we couldn't access beaches and restaurants fairly quickly. The layout is perfect because the living room and sleeping area are separated from the kitchen by a sliding glass door. In the mornings, I could get up early and enjoy a cup of coffee on the screened in kitchen/dining room porch area without disturbing my husband. The setting is beautiful with a view of the ocean and surrounded by tropical flowers, bushes, and trees. It was really quite beautiful and we would recommend to anyone who would like to experience the natural beauty of Hawaii.

All as advertised. Lovely quiet spot, like being in the middle of a jungle with fresh fruit trees and coffee bushes all around. Clean, spacious feeling like a high roofed Mother-in-Law house. Everything works in this clean, nicely decorated refuge. Would love to come and stay longer, but it was a great conclusion to our trip after a busy time on Maui. No room service? We did not even use the radio or TV, just enjoyed the Oceanview with our morning coffee and fruit.

We arrived safe and sound yesterday around 3pm. Your directions were easy to follow and we were able to find rainbow Ohana with no trouble at all. We were stunned by the beauty of the vegetation and the sounds of the birds when we got out of our jeep for the first time. The view is spectacular. The cottage is quaint and homey. We just love it. This place is exactly what we where looking for. Very peaceful and private.

Beth's cottage is a lovely, sweet, one-of-a-kind experience for the happy traveler who wants to go a little local. Barely a mile off the main highway, down a 1 lane road filled with coffee plantations, chickens, quail and the kind of people who love to live here, her cottage is a comfortable oasis. The bed is great, the space open and inviting; the bathroom works perfectly well; and the hospitality is wonderful. You enter onto the screened in porch which also houses the kitchen. To the west is your ocean view - as you are about a mile up the hill. You look down into the tropical garden and know you're in paradise. A mile off the beaten path, yet further yet. The garden ls lush and inviting. I plan to come here again. Thanks Beth!!
