The Garden Hale was just perfect for our needs. There were just the two of us - though the cottage could sleep more - and we stayed for 9 nights. I was attending a conference at one of the big hotels on the Kohala Coast, and it took exactly 12 minutes to get there from the Garden Hale. We enjoyed the cottage very much. The cottage has a comfortable bed, a fully equipped kitchen, AND access to washer, dryer, and clothesline. From the cottage, we could explore up onto the saddle of the island near the volcanoes or get down to great snorkeling in a matter of minutes. The cool night air in Waimea makes for great sleeping. Matthew and his garden workers made us so welcome - and we had fresh eggs from their chickens every day! Very nice. We would stay here again and recommend highly to others.
