    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Aloha from South Kona! We have TWO very adorable and very nicely appointed Cottages or "little houses" for Couples or any two people looking for a truly unique and off the beaten path experience. Both have awesome ocean views, and are surrounded by mature tropical vegetation, fruits,flowers, and privacy. We would love to share our little slice of heaven with you!
    Enjoy either the cozy Jungle Cottage or the luxurious & spacious Banana Bungalow. We cater to couples on honeymoons, anniversaries, and any special occasion or just any regular vacation for 2 people per Cottage and also anyone who is into coffee and being on a coffee plantation; ecotourism is what they call it, right?

    Many couples bring friends and and each can have their own little house with their own privacy a...

    Additional Rate and Availability Information
    The state of Hawaii taxes are 13.41% of the total of however many nights you are staying including the 100. exit cleaning charge.

    To figure your weekly rent please take the amount as shown above under weekly rent, add in $100. for the Exit Cleaning charge, then take 13.41% of that total for the Hawaii State Taxes, and add that amount to the sub-total and you will have the total amount of your total stay.

    For example, the JUNGLE COTTAGE one week rate(130. X 7 nights) is the 910.00 as shown above, plus 100. for exit cleaning = 1010. X 13.41% for the Hawaii State Taxes which comes to 135.+ 1010. = the ONE WEEK TOTAL OF 1145.00. The deposit is half, 572.50 now, and then 30 days prior to your arrival the balance is the same, 572.50.

    And exactly the same thing for the BANANA BUNGALOW; the one week rate (150. X 7) of 1050.00 as shown above + 100. exit cleaning = 1150. X 13.41% Hawaii State Taxes which come to 154. + 1050. = so the ONE WEEK TOTAL OF 1304. The deposit is half, 652.00...

    Additional Location Information
    Our "neighborhood" would be described as rural yet in 10 minutes you can be down our road and into civilization! It's so lovely and quiet up here on our little hill; filled with colorful gorgeous flowers and landscaping, and it's green year round. Yet we get less than half the rain that Hilo gets. We have the perfect year round temperature of approximately 76 degrees, while at the shoreline it can be 10 degrees hotter.

    We are the last property up along the mountain side of Highway 11, ie, Mamalahoa Highway, just up the hill, before one would turn right to go to the City of Refuge. Our property is 7/10ths of a mile up a very bumpy with lots of twists and turns. We personally meet and guide you up upon arrival, no matter what time of day or night. We are gated and there is no sign nor looky-loos walking around looking for an office.

    We have 3 acres and each of our 2 Cottages are separated by space and landscaping so each little house is very private and secluded. Our...

We so enjoyed staying in the Banana Bungalow. We have busy life's and enjoyed the pure serenity of the environment on this working coffee plantation.

I have been staying in the Banana Bungalo for over 10 years and it's the most romantic cottage ever. In the middle of a beautiful tropical jungle every window view is a picture postcard. The exclusive treats are beyond wonderful from the tropical fruit basket to the 100% Kona coffee and more! Truly more beautiful then any hotel on any... more

We had a fantastic time on the Big Island and enjoyed our stay in the Jungle Cottage at Bwana Bob's. We were so impressed with the cottage, the atmosphere and the hospitality. It was perfect. The road up to the site was a bit rough but somehow it added to the charm and enhanced the "off-the-grid" experience we were looking... more
