Overview

Waimea - Kamuela Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 BEDROOM SLEEPS 4 - GREAT CLIMATE & LOCATION

This charming garden hale 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 accomModate your request. You will always feel welcome and long to return to our unique retreat.

If our calendar at the Garden Hale is full, please contact us as we have other beautiful homes that may be available for your desired dates. Call 928-713-7535.

We have found the best guide book is “Hawaii The Big Island Revealed”

by Andrew Doughty ISBN 13: 978-0-9814610-0-7.

The best for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Garden Hale was a highlight of our trip. Definitely the best of all our accommodation in Hawaii. The house was quiet, clean, very well equipped and comfortable. If you are seeking for privacy, this is a place for you. We were welcomed by fresh eggs and coffee, which was very nice too. Sorry, we couldn’t meet the owners personally, we would be interested in permaculture and their travelling experience. I’d like to say “next time” but Hawaii is so far away…Thank you.

Owner's Response: Aloha Stepanka, "The best of all our accommodation in Hawaii" is exactly what we strive for! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at The Garden Hale. That you took advantage of the privacy and comforts of our hale and enjoyed the bounty of our 2 acre retreat. I'm sorry we were not there while you were visiting. We took a little vacation that included additional permaculture workshops. Got some great design ideas. I hope you had a chance to meet our guest hostess while you were here. She was the one that delivered the fresh eggs. I know Hawaii is far from home but we hope if you do get back that we will have the opportunity to be your hosts. You would be a welcome guest anytime. Aloha and Mahalo, Matthew and Rose

A Perfect Homebase in Kohala-Waimea

  • 5 of 5

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.

Clean, comfortable, quiet, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This small apartment is clean and quiet, and surrounded by a two acre organic farm. The location is ideal. It's only a 5 minute drive to Waimea for groceries, and a ten minute drive to Hapuna State Park and the other best beaches of the Big Island. Owner Matt is friendly and helpful. The apartment doesn't have any kind of view, and is a little dark. Overall though it met our needs well.

Owner's Response: Aloha Heidi, We're happy that you enjoyed your stay at The Garden Hale and the great central location of our two acre retreat. I know you were off each day enjoying all the great beaches that are only minutes away but you missed the Mauna Kea and Kohala Mountain Views from the front and back porch. Hopefully you will allow us to be your hosts again and I will show you right were to park a comfortable chair and take in those sights. Thank you again for being our guests. We would welcome you back anytime to Garden Hale. Much Aloha and Mahalo, Matthew and Rose

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.
