PRIVATE APARTMENT ON SERENE 2 ACRE RETREAT-CENTRAL LOCATION-EXCELLENT CLIMATE

Waimea - Kamuela Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 BEDROOM SLEEPS 4 GREAT CLIMATE MONTAIN VIEWS

This charming garden apartment is situated on the sunny side of the Paniolo Town of Waimea (Kamuela)

Our peaceful, two acre retreat is the perfect location for exploring the numerous points of interest on the Big Island and a private getaway to practice 'Hawaiian Time'

The Garden Hale is a separate building from the main house. It features beautiful bamboo and stone flooors, 9 feet ceilings with fans, and a private lanai with an organic garden and outdoor seating and grilling. The separate bedroom features a comfortable queen size bed with upscale linens. The daybed in the living room is a true queen size bed for comfortable sleeping. The bathroom is beautifully appointed with a walk-in natural stone shower. Free parking is provided. We use chemical free cleaners in all of our properties....healthy for you and the environment.

You will find yourself minutes away from the best beaches on the Big Island. The largest of Hawaii Island’s white sand beaches, Hapuna Beach, has consistently been rated on numerous international Top Ten lists. Mauna Kea Beach, a perfect crescent of golden sand leading to calm water, has been voted among the Top 10 beaches in the U.S. Both offer great conditions for swimming, sunbathing, bodyboarding and snorkeling.

Beyond the beaches, Hawaii offers a host of outdoor activities and sightseeing oppportunities. Head to Waimea and visit the many shops and galleries.

Waimea Town is the perfect starting point for a trip to the Volcano National Park. A memorable drive to Hilo along the Hamakua Coast offers breathtaking views of historic Waipio Valley. This area is also home to Akaka Falls, one of Hawaii's most famous. You'll see deep water-carved gulches and valleys, thick with tropical foliage. Stop and tour gardens full of exotic plants and orchids.

For adventure of a higher nature, the 13,700 foot summit of Mauna Kea provides dramatic scenery and an unforgettable visitor experience. The W. M. Keck Observatory provides a visitor’s gallery with exhibits describing astronomy research and star gazing.

There's no better way to experience the amazing cultural diversity of Hawaii Island than to visit one of the farmers’ markets that take place all arround the island. You’ll find fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables used in Hawaii Regional Cuisine, exotic varieties that are as intriguing as they are tasty plus an eclectic collection of prepared foods.The market is also a great place to pick up handmade artwork or a unique gift and strike up a conversation with the artist who made them.

When you're ready for some relaxation, come home to

Garden Hale.

Let us know if you will be celebrating a special occasion or have a certain needs. We will do all we can to accomodate your request. You will always feel welcome and long to return to our unique retreat.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND GARDEN HALE

  • 5 of 5
We spent a relaxing two weeks at Garden Hale. Was the perfect location on the big island for our adventures. Minutes from the Kohala Coast beaches and the town of Waimea. Warm daytime weather turned cooler in the evening at the cottage's elevation made for perfect sleeping weather. Matt could not have been a better host. We quickly fell into a routine of breakfast at the cottage, followed by the packing of a cooler for the day. Everything you need for the beach is provided. Chairs, sand mats, towels, boogie boards and noodles. Internet was a great bonus. I was able to work and stay connected with my office as needed. Lovely quiet place for our stay.

DOESN'T GET BETTER THAN THIS!

The Garden Hale is something to be experienced. The views, the weather, the proximity to amazing beaches and Waimea make it an ideal location on the island. The property itself is really, really nice. There are several outbuildings on the property that are also used for vacation rentals, but it's very private and the owners Matt and Rose are very helpful and responsive. We were lucky enough to spend 5 weeks on the island using various rentals in different parts of the island. The Garden Hale was by far the nicest in terms of cleanliness, decor, artistry and craftsmanship. There are various gardens around the property that are beautiful with flowers and fruits and veggies, and then there are the chickens that supplied us with fresh eggs. The size of the Garden Hale was good for the 3 of us- myself and my husband and our 3 yr old son. It was nice to have space for him to walk around on the property and we all took daily walks in the rural, quiet neighborhood where you could see nice sunsets. We were supposed to stay 7 days and ended up staying for 14 days, we loved it so much! Cannot recommend it highly enough. The only downside was the lanai was not as usable as we would have liked because of the sun and the heat and no shade. It was nice in the evenings for a BBQ on the brand new grill. They even had beach toys for my son! To make the visit complete, my husband had a cranial sacral massage/treatment from Rose for his cluster headaches. These are severe headaches that come on daily for months. His headaches were gone one day after his session with Rose. Amazing. Thanks for the great stay! We hope to return!

Owner's Response: Aloha Krista

It was our pleasure to host you and your family in The Garden Hale. We hope you can return sometime in the future. You were gracious and courteous guests and you'll always be welcome.

We have addressed the lack of shade on the lanai and have made it more comfortable for daytime relaxing.

Very accommodating hosts, perfect climate to enjoy Hawaii's warmth but not too hot to sleep without air conditioning. Papaya very morning, herbs for the fish from the fishmonger down the road, and we had fun each morning feeding our compost pail collection to the chickens was great!

ZEN HALE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Zen Hale and found the privacy wonderful! It is its own building, well appointed, clean and perfect for two. The location is just right for seeing the sights of the Big Island and enjoying lots of different beaches. We had a distant view of the ocean and lots of surrounding hills. Matt and Rose are great hosts - friendly, helpful and generous. This was our 7th trip to Hawaii and quite possibly our best.

PERFECT LOCATION, COMFORTABLE AND QUIET, CLOSE TO GREAT SNORKELING!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent a week at the Garden Hale following a week in South Kona. The Garden Hale was in a perfect location for exploring the north side of the Big Island, especially the excellent snorkeling in North and South Kohala. It is only about 15 minutes or so from some fabulous beaches including Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani, Waialea (69), and Hapuna which are great for both swimming and snorkeling. It is even closer to Kawaihae Harbor for kayak rental (1/2 day was $40 for a double kayak through Kohala Divers in Kawaihae). Being close to Waimea, it is also relatively painless to slip over to the east side of the island on a day trip. There are 2 large grocery stores in Waimea along with great restaurants, but I especially enjoyed buying produce from the Waimea Farmer's Market (on Weds and Sat) and a local farm (on Tues and Fri).

At 1800 feet elevation, the Garden Hale is at a perfect elevation for comfortable air temperature. Much cooler and more comfortable than the temperature at the Kohala water level, and drier and less cloudy than Waimea up the hill; this made for delightful sleeping conditions and fabulous star gazing. The bedroom has a comfortable bed, and is light and airy with a quiet ceiling fan for excellent ventilation. The kitchen is compact but worked fine for cooking simple meals along with the outdoor gas grill. The living area is spacious and also has a quiet ceiling fan, but is lacking in natural light so we didn't spend much time in it. We ate all of our meals and spent most of our downtime on the private lanai; the lanai faces east and was therefore perfect for drinking coffee and eating breakfast in the morning sunshine, and reading and relaxing in afternoon shade. There is a private garden off of the lanai, which was a source of entertainment as we watched the birds and a couple of industrious small field mice strip dead heads off of the flower beds. The lanai is also largely bug-free, which was very welcome to us after getting eaten by mosquitoes and ants in South Kona.

Matthew, the property owner, was warm, welcoming, and quick to assist with our questions and requests as we were settling in. He was also very helpful and responsive as I was planning our stay at the Garden Hale, and generously shared eggs, fruit, and vegies from his own chickens and garden with us. Thank you for a great week, Matthew!

EXCELLENT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Really nice & spacious place with separate master bedroom, large kitchen/dining/living room, delicious fruit ready to be picked in the garden. Matthew the owner was very pleasant and helpful with recommendations of all kinds. The washing & drying facilities and the gas grill were also very handy! Kamuele/Waimea is also an ideal location to explore the North of Big Island, including Mauna Kea.
