Guest Book for Kona Yurt Vacation
There are not enough great things I can say about staying in the Kona Yurt in the middle of a coffee farm. First of all, the pictures online do not do it justice. Having stayed in a yurt in Hana, Maui and at the TreeBones Yurt Resort in Big Sur, we knew what to expect. But my husband and I were so thrilled with the whole set up! If you are adventuresome and dont need the Marriott, stay here! Don't waste your money on a corporate hotel. The Kona Yurt is reasonably priced (maybe even underpriced for such a magical experience!) remote enough to help you decompress immediately from your long travels but close enough to food, beach, and Kailea-Kona activities. Mary and Norm, the owners, are super nice and easygoing and Mary was so incredibly friendly and flexible in communicating with us when we had flight issues and were late in checking in. When we arrived, she gave us a bag of coffee from her crop (which was ridiculously good), an entire tour of the grounds, the yurt, the outdoor shower and bathroom, alerted us that her dog might pop up to see us, and that the wild turkeys on the farm may chase our car. She gave us ideas where to go to eat, to swim, etc. Very helpful. The Yurt is situated in the middle of a field of coffee trees, nestled on a private property, surrounded by botanical plants and banana trees, swaying in the breeze. You have to drive up a hill, through a portion of the coffee tree farm, behind the owners' home (which you can barely see) to get to the yurt, which is really actually HUGE. The interior is more than accommodating and has a big wrap around porch with 3 separate seating areas, to hang out, at night, with a glass of wine, and listen to all of the different sounds of the wild. An Absolute MUST, for the flexible, the adventuresome, the low-maintenance. Not for kids. Not for, in our opinion, for more than one couple.
