The Onion House isn't for everyone......
- The Onion House is not suitable for families with young children (less than 12), or for those who have difficulty with steps, due to safety considerations inherent in its design. We make no representation of the house as accessible.
- Smoking outside only, please.
- The Onion House is true Organic Architecture - it is not a climate controlled, sterile resort like location. There is no air-conditioning (we use many fans!). It is truly indoor/outdoor living in a shelter of roof, screen, glass and rock cooled by nature passive design.
- Kailua-Kona is in the tropics, and we instruct guests on best practices to keep tropical visitors at bay (cleaning after meals, putting food away, removing trash daily), but if you've never lived in a tropical environment, you may see more wildlife than you are used to. We have regular and thorough pest control services and clean thoroughly between guests. Even with all that, we can't guarantee that you won't see a member of the vibrant ecosystem that makes Hawaii so unique. Ask us more if you have concerns.
We are fully compliant with the new county regulations - here is the required info:
Under new county regulations, we are required to post and advise guests of these rules:
(A) Quiet hours shall be from 9:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., during which time the noise from the STVR shall not unreasonably disturb adjacent neighbors.
(B) Sound that is audible beyond the property boundaries during non-quiet hours shall not be more excessive than would be otherwise associated with a residential area.
(C) Guest vehicles shall be parked in the designated onsite parking area and not on the street.
(D) The STVR shall not be used for commercial purposes. The county strictly interprets this and thus in-home chefs, in-home massage, etc. are not allowed under STVR rules.
The STVR Registration Number is: STVR-19-361289
The Nonconforming Use Certificate Number is: NUC-19-1205
("Nonconforming" basically means that our vacation rental is not located in a resort zone.)
