There are a few places in the world that seem to demand that you just
let yourself go, unbend and soar with the wind. The Edge of the World is
one of them.
Tickle the eyes, spark the imagination, remember what nature and
being is all about. No matter where you have lived, after spending time
at the Edge of the World, you'll feel you've returned to where you
As the name implies, this is the edge of the world. You can view down
into Kealakekua Bay where James Cook met his demise in the late 1700's
and easily imagine his awe of this island and the natives' awe of him
and his ship. Five acres offers the quietude one should expect in such a
beautiful setting. Tropical fruit trees are there for your picking, and
macadamia nut trees and coffee plants are there for my picking, but you
can help if you want to. There's also a tree house in the
ever-being-built stage perched in a mango tree for the young and young
at heart who really want to get away.
South Kona is known for its rural flavor. People who live here call
it the real Hawaii - as opposed to the hustle and bustle of Waikiki or
the resorts to the north. Be sure to let me know your special interests
(whale watching, kayaking, volcano watching, scuba, etc.) so that I can
help you build them into your stay on the Big Island.
The Edge of the World is a modern, comfortable and tranquil bed and
breakfast with amazing views down the Kona Coast and out to the Pacific
Ocean. This is a boutique, upscale B&B with downscale prices. The
house has various treasures from Dr. Weigelt's travels around the world,
like masks from Borneo, that keep away the evil spirits and antique
As your hosts are experienced world travelers themselves, they know
what it's like to be on the road and offer many free services
accordingly. Complimentary laundry service for stays of three days or
more, free use of snorkel and beach equipment and beach towels, free use
of the host's computer for a quick email check, and lots of good advice
on things to see and do while you are on the Big Island can be expected.
Great snorkeling and hiking near by. A great place to catch a sunset,
swim with dolphins, watch the whales, play golf, or just relax and watch
the papaya grow.
Your hosts, Dr. Kurt Weigelt and his Japanese wife, Kanae Naruoka, prepare
an excellent breakfast: vegan, traditional, Japanese or Hawaiian.
Located on a macadamia nut and coffee plantation, at your request you
will be given a short tropical agriculture tour.
If you want to experience the real flavor of Big Island life, this is
the place to go.
King size beds, private baths, telephones in room, and much more.
Off season discounts for long term stay.
The Crow's Nest:
The Crow's Nest is on the second floor of the house and has a
spectacular view of Kealekekua Bay and the Pacific Ocean. It has a
private lanai, individual satellite TV, DVD, phone, private bath,
refrigerator, wall to wall carpet, and king size bed. It is our most
popular room and a favorite of honeymooners, artists and poets. It is
$119 plus tax per night. This room may have the best view in
The Pacific Room:
The Pacific Room, on the main floor of the house, is a spacious
bedroom with a huge private bathroom, king size bed, TV, VCR and DVD,
wall to wall carpet, refrigerator, phone and opens on the long lanai
which wraps around the back of the house looking out to the ocean.
There is a cozy, semi-private area on the lanai for guests staying in
the Pacific room. There is also a fine ocean view from the bedroom.
This room is $99 plus tax per night.
The Nut Room is slightly smaller than the other two rooms but still
quite large, wall to wall carpet, has one double bed and one twin bed,
no TV or phone (however guests are welcome to use the ones in the
living room). The private bathroom is two steps down the hallway. It
overlooks the orchard and has a wonderful skylight, and is $70
plus tax per night.
It's a ten minute drive to a modern, free public swimming pool and
tennis courts, ten minutes to some of the world's greatest snorkeling,
and twenty minutes to ancient archeological sites and ethnobotanical
garden, or follow me around my orchard while I talk with the plants.
Play badminton in the front yard. Free use of the washing machine,
snorkeling equipment, coolers, and beach gear, and discount rates on the
ocean kayak. Limited refrigerator space is available for guests. Free
internet use to keep in touch with people at home. Satellite TV, and VCR
are also available for guests.
One of the most interesting and intriguing features about Edge of the
World Bed and Breakfast is that we grow our very own organic coffee...
which we must say, our guests absolutely enjoy! Our guests enjoy
learning how our coffee is grown and of course our guests also enjoy our
coffee's absolutely refreshing taste!
As our guest, we invite you to come and enjoy the many pleasures of
Edge of the World Bed and Breakfast and of course, our coffee.
Our coffee is of the highest quality! In fact, our coffee is
organically processed, meaning no chemicals are used during
fermentation, and we don't use herbicides or pesticides in growing. It
is also sun dried and for those that don't know, organic products have a
noticeably more delicious taste or flavor and our organic coffee is no
Edge of the World coffee would be categorized as "estate
coffee" as we don't buy from others to put under our label. Things
you may have heard about "extra fancy" or "peaberry"
being superior qualities are most likely hype. The density of the bean
is an important factor, but most important is how it tastes to the
person who drinks it.
We are careful to pick only fully ripened beans. We can ensure this
by picking everything by hand.
Contact us for current prices as they flucuate somewhat dependent upon the rainfall. But no matter what the current price we assure you it is much lower than our competition.
You can order our organically grown coffee by email or phone.
We are also happy to answer your questions about our very
interesting coffee bean operation.
The Edge of the World is about 17 miles from Keohole (Kona) airport.
- Turn right on Rte. 19, which becomes Rte. 11 after Kailua-Kona
- You'll pass the Manago Hotel (between 109 and 110 mile markers) on
your right as you enter the small town of Capt. Cook.
- On your left you'll pass the fire station, post office, and
Kealakekua Ranch Center.
- Two streets past the Kona Theater, (the first street is Anoi
Place) maybe half a mile, you will make a right turn.
- At that intersection you will see a one foot by six foot wooden
sign saying "McCoy Plantation." Turn right there and
remain on that road for the next two tenths of a mile. Don't drive
down Coffee Drive. Please drive slowly from here to the Edge, as
roads are narrow and visibility poor.
- After two tenths you will see a small blue newspaper tube on a post on the right hand side of the road. You'll also see a white circle about two feet in diameter painted on the road and a small sign with the numbers 82-589 five feet beyond where you turn. Turn right there (it looks kind of like a driveway) and proceed down a narrow, lush road for two tenths of a mile.
- You will pass two houses on your right, the second one with a
fence running down the middle of the road, just keep going straight
ahead, down a hill, up a hill and out of the lushness with coffee
plants on your left and a small pasture on your right.
- When the pasture (and a low stone wall) end, you will turn right down a cement driveway. You'll also see a six foot long white arrow painted in the road, a small sign that says "Edge" and again the numbers 82-5899 on a small sign.. It's a long driveway of about 400 feet.
- Don't stop at the first house on your right, which has a green
roof, or the next house on your left which also has a green roof,
just keep going until you come to The Edge of the World, where
you'll see a very small sign. You'll see a modern looking two story
structure, upper floor is redwood with white roof, and the lower
level is beige stucco, and maybe a white pick up truck parked near
If you feel confused, just give me a call and I will be happy to meet
you at the Manago Hotel or the Capt. Cook Post Office, as they are only
a five minute drive from our bed and breakfast.
If you arrive at night, it might be a good idea just to let us meet
you and show you the way.
Please remember to copy and bring these directions.
