Driving the narrow and winding road and entering the serene lovely mango cottage property was a gift after hours of traveling. The directions were perfect and refreshments in the fridge was appreciated. The grounds, fountain, birds, geckos, viiew and spacious well-stocked property was just like the photos and reviews, only better. We have no negative comments-how could we while experiencing sheer bliss! Mahalo to Christine and Bobby for making our Hawaiian vacation a most memorable and dreamy time.

We finished our Big Island vacation at Mango Cottage. We simply loved it. Here are the key points though I could go on for quite some time:
-Kona is hot but up on the hill at Mango Cottage you enjoy a lovely breeze.
-Orange Juice from the orange tree is the best fresh orange juice we have had in our lives.
-Christine and Bobby are simply exceptional hosts. They are attentive to details we never would have thought of, yet leave the place for you to enjoy with complete privacy.
-Whirlpool rocks especially if you decide to walk up the steepest road in North America!
-BBQ rocks, porch rocks, bed is comfy.
-The supplies for the beach are also outstanding.
That would be enough but they left us drinks in the fridge too.
Also, I am sensitive to noise and found Mango cottage to be a peaceful oasis. The loudest noise I heard were the birds chirping.
Thank you Christine and Bobby for sharing your corner of paradise with us!

Mango Cottage was a highlight on our trip to the big Island, the pictures and amenities were exactly as described. The cottage has everything you need and is so private and peaceful you will not want to leave! The location is great for exploring all area's on the Island with easy highway access.There are so many little touches that make it special, Thank-you to Christine for making our stay so enjoyable.

Wild parrots in the trees, tangelos and papayas that you pick from the trees for breakfast on the lanai, and heavenly sunsets in paradise....what more could you ask for? We were instantly relaxed the moment we stepped on the property. We would have probably missed a lot of Hawaiian nature had we stayed at a hotel. The Mango Cottage was fully equipped and left us wanting for nothing. We would definitely make the choice to return to the cottage if we get the chance. If Christine was not a Master Gardener at some point in her life, she should consider it; the attention to detail in the layout of the property and the privacy was greatly appreciated.

All of the prior glowing reviews were spot on. We spent seven nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were welcomed to the cottage with plumeria blooms (my wife’s favorite) placed throughout the cottage providing for a great aroma as we entered for several days. Christine also had water and beer in the fridge along with fresh fruit. The landscaping was well maintained and watching the birds was relaxing. I was able to enjoy one of the best avocados I've ever tasted as well. We had our teenage son with us who also was able to enjoy his down time (thanks to the WiFi) when not using the boogie board that was provided during our time at Kua Bay. Christine literally has thought of everything to make her guests stay pleasurable. Also, the higher elevation provided for cooler night air that was refreshing.

We have stayed on Ali’I Drive multiple times in timeshare locations, yet when we visit the Big Island again we will be staying at Mango Cottage.

One final comment, the directions to the cottage were spot on (I would suggest to Google map it once given the address and familiarize yourself especially if coming in at night), and the one lane road was a neat road to drive albeit slowly as birds flew all around and seemingly played “chicken” with the car.
