A wildly original architectural gem set on a high terrace overlooking the Kona Coast, the Onion House was hand-built for the McCormick Spice family, by renowned architect Kendrick Kellogg.
With the whole home to yourselves, you’ll relish the privacy to swim, sunbathe and enjoy the 70' pool, in a lush tropical setting. Walls of screen and stained glass let you live in touch with the gentle Hawaiian environment, so this unforgettable experience feels like luxury camping.
