Aloha and a hui hou, Libby and Chuck

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our kids loved the place and the best of all the places we stayed in the islands!!

We noticed your tasteful decoration and appreciated having enough room to feel intimate and cozy.

Your cottage was a wonderful place to return after a day enjoying Hawaii. We're glad we chose Waimea for an opportunity to experience a Hawaii we didn't know existed. This morning was chilly...socks and sweatshirts!"

Best of our Big Island sampler

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in three rental cottages on our first trip to the Big Island, and this was our favorite and the one we will definitely return to. We loved being in cool ranch country, in a much quieter area than Hilo (when cruise ships are in) or Kona. Waimea has no crowds and really friendly people. Access to beach, mountain, farmers markets, good food, bird watching -- couldn't have been easier. And if you feel like taking a day off from driving, the cottage has plenty of space to spread out and a nice kitchen for cooking. Local ribeye steaks and delicious poke (Kim chee tako, or octopus!) from the store and you are all set. Mahalo, Libby!

Lovely Waimea Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at this great little cottage! We were 4 adults. There was plenty of room for us all. Anything you'd need is included. Loved the French press. It was great being able to just walk to the Saturday Market. Very nice having a BBQ grill, table and chairs on the Lanai. It's a very peaceful setting with sheep as neighbors.

Merriman's restaurant is awesome for a very nice dinner. This location is very convenient to go on day trips to Hawi, Botanical Gardens, Hilo or any of the Kohala beaches. Nice to come home in the evening to this comfy cottage.

Libby is the most gracious hostess! She bends over backwards to make your stay enjoyable.

Worthy of all the positive reviews

  • 5 of 5
Here are 10 reasons why you should stay at the Mana Upcountry Cottage on your next trip to the Big Island:

1) It's comfortable.

We had more than enough room for our family of three and I wouldn't hesitate to take a fourth. The layout makes it easy for kids to sleep and not be disturbed by adults who stay up later.

2) It's quiet.

The nearest traffic was out on the highway. At night, in particular, the stillness was fabulous.

3) The property is spacious.

Our daughter *loved* running around the big yard, chasing butterflies, and hunting for ladybugs. We loved the fact that it was nearly impossible for her to run out into the road.

4) It's got rural charm.

Our normal morning traffic noise at home was replaced with roosters crowing and birds chirping. When the nighttime skies cleared the stars were amazing. Sheep graze in a pasture next door.

5) It's in Waimea.

I've traveled a lot and I'm frankly smitten with Waimea. It's got every modern convenience, a big awesome playground, a great contrast between wet and dry, farmers markets, and a collection of restaurants that far exceeds what would be expected in such a place. Village Burger, in particular, is not to be missed!

6) It's close to three great beaches.

Spencer Beach Park (possibly the best beach on the island for kids), Mauna Kea, and Hapuna are all within 20-25 minutes. I only mention those three because we frequented them the most.

7) It's central to other parts of the island.

Hilo is about an hour away. Hawi is under an hour. The wonderful drives on Saddle Road and Kohala Mountain Road are just outside of town.

8) The evenings are nice and cool.

After an afternoon of sitting in the hot sun at the beach, this Washingtonian appreciated climbing the hill to the cool and showery 50s (8-14c) at night.

9) Mana Road.

You could walk (or run, or ride) for miles and miles on this quiet scenic byway. On our walk, we even met some friendly neighborhood horses who wandered across the pasture to visit us.

10) The hosts.

Libby was a fantastic hostess, and very accommodating. She made sure the cottage was sparkling and had everything we needed.

We're looking forward to being able to stay there again!

Comfort on the Mana Rd.

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Libby for providing us with all the hospitality at your upcountry cottage. The location gave us good day trip access to many awesome parts of the Big Island that many visitors don't get to see or appreciate. Waimea is just down the road with good shopping and excellent restaurants. The cottage was squeaky clean and very relaxing at the end of our tour days. Hope to return!

The jewel and gift of mana cottage

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the mana upcountry cottage for 3 1/2 weeks. It was an incredibly magical time. The cottage felt like a home away from home for us. It is clean, comfortable, cozy and very private. The large yard gives a very open feel to it. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was efficient and organized. The beds were comfortable, we loved spending time in the living room with the fireplace watching movies. The peace, beauty and lushness of Waimea is the greatest gift i can give my spirit. LIbby's gracious hospitality added so much to us being here, we felt so safe, taken care of and cozy tucked away at the end of this private lane. We eat and live very organically so to be able to have the local farmers market, natural foods store right in town and the most delicious giant avocado tree right outside our door was really wonderful. An even greater treat - the sheep in the pasture all gave birth during the time we were there - we adored seeing the baby lambs jumping and springing everywhere. Everyday i would run or cycle on maan road - it was extraordinary to be in this much space and quiet. We will definitely be back, already recommended this cottage to a number of our friends. Before we left, we were already missing Mana Cottage and Waimea. To all future guests - it will be one of the most special times in your life .....enjoy! Aloha

Holiday season in the upcountry

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this charming and very well equipped cottage for 5 weeks over Christmas and new year's. We just loved everything about our stay here - the town, local farmer markets, our fence-sharing cows and sheep, the avo's, and our very gracious hosts. We were so much at home that we started to feel like we should be checking the mailbox! Highly recommended.
