About Kerstin Preyasi Exter

We sailed to Hawaii from the South Pacific in 1991 and the Island welcomed us so much that we are still here today! We love to travel and explore new places preferably from a nice , home-like base. We used our travel experiences to create a welcoming home away from home for you.

We are woodworkers by trade and have included our expertise as well as our love for detail and beauty into our properties.

We love local food and cooking so our kitchen is well equipped.

We support sustainability- we have solar power ( with electric back up), we compost and recycle, we have herbs, nuts and fruit in out garden that we are happy to share with you.

We both meditate and Kerstin practices yoga. When we are on island we are happy to share our Yoga and meditation shala with our guests.

Kerstin Preyasi Exter purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Kerstin Preyasi Exter chose Hawi

We got word about this Macadamia orchard from friends who live next door while we were traveling. Since we loved layed-back North Kohala and had lived and fallen in love with Hawi Town already we made an offer sight unseen and proceeded to design and build our little piece of paradise that we now share with travelers.

What makes this cottage unique

We offer you a unique, beautiful, safe and welcoming place to relax. This is not just a vacation rental, this is a home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to thank you again for a wonderful stay at the Hawi house - we enjoyed every aspect of it! The house really exceeded our expectations, it was super comfortable and felt like home right from the first day. I will definitely recommend it to friends and we will be back during our next trip to the island. I discovered so much more to see and do there - cant wait!

Oasis on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing. The pictures do it some justice as they were what attracted us to book it in the first place! The attention to detail in the craftsmanship is evident throughout. Someone (Kerstin) showed this place some love when they were creating it and we were glad that they have chosen to share it. It was a great hub on the north side of the island for our explorations. We stayed a week here and then a week at the Marriott Waikoloa for this, our first trip to the Big Island. If I were to do it again, I would have tacked on another few days to the trip and stayed a night in Volcanos NP area, and perhaps a couple nights in Kona so as to break up the travel to the southernmost parts of the island. But for rest and relaxation, this place couldn't be beat. Extremely comfortable and had just about all you could ask for in a place away from home.

Kerstin communicated with us before and after our arrival. She met us at the property, showed us around a bit, and gave us some great information on local happenings (also there was plenty of literature at the place to peruse for local excursions/sights). I would definitely stay in this place again and will be recommending it to family and friends. Mahalo Kerstin.

Love Hawi!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay, this time in the smaller house on the property. We had a great time last year and this year was no exception. Kersten is great to deal with and the home is finished very nicely. The bed is very comfortable and the lanai was terrific. The beaches are a comfortable drive, roads quiet, and just a great area to be in. We also took in the Waipio Valley this time and thoroughly enjoyed that as well. Water was warm and snorkeling great! Don't miss the Chuckwagon BBQ! Swarupo the manager is also very accommodating.

A perfect Hawaiian vacation

  • 5 of 5
My wife and i and our 2 year old baby girl found this perfect Hawaiian paradise cottage nestled in the trees near an authentic Hawaiian town called Hawi. The cottage is everything that you might imagine for a true romantic getaway. The location is fabulous and near the town to get everything you might need, but still have maximum privacy. It has the old Hawaii feel but with all new amenities. The photos on the web site are very accurate and in real life even better, The peace and tranquility felt on the property are simply awesome. Kerstin and Atulyo were fabulous hosts and were always available if you needed them.
The cottage has a beautiful Lanai to relax and take in nature, starting with the kitchen, hand made craftsmen cabinetry, topped with granite, gas cook top, all appliances stainless steel, and has everything that you might need to cook a gourmet meal. The bathroom is large and has a great shower all brushed nickel fixtures spotless and new. The master bed is super comfortable and the room is very quite and private. The Internet connection is fast and reliable, cable TV and DVD player.
My Wife and i are global travelers and have been coming to Hawaii for many years, and we have stayed at many places and this cottage is the best place, location, privacy, quality accommodation that we have ever experienced, we highly recommend this cottage to anyone that might want the complete Hawaiian experience, we will be back again for sure.

All I want to do is return! Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
Exactly as described plus more! All I want to do is return! Kerstin and Atulyo were very personable and gave us some great ideas for things to do while on the Big Island. The Cottage is exactly as pictured....clean, room to move and relax outside on the covered porch or get some sun in the grass. Hawi itself is an awesome little town with a little grocery store, great shops, restaurants - Sushi Rock for sushi rolls, local greens salads, great mixed drinks, Bamboo for cool ambiance, gift shop, local catch dinners, be sure to eat early evening and there is a pub which offers local music, Driving within 15 minutes are state parks and Pololu Beach, not to be missed! 25 minutes to Waimea or 25 minutes to the Resort beaches. Staying in Hawi we were able to experience the best of both worlds. I will be returning and I would definitely stay again but this time longer!

Wonderful Cottage! Wonderful Value!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first "home away" on our vacation and was a wonderful place to stay for our five nights in Hawi. It was very well equipped and well taken care of, and Kerstin was living next door and available if we needed anything. We especially liked sitting on the lanai and watching the family of turkeys walking nearby! The next time we come to Hawi we will look forward to staying there again if possible. Mahalo, Kerstin!

Perfect Hawi rental

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I are frequent HomeAway and VRBO renters. This charming Hawi cottage has the highest quality design and furnishings, as well as the best value we have found in North Kohala. The attention to detail they have built into this cottage is exceptional. The owners have developed a private and relaxing grarden setting that has everything you need for a perfect stay on the Big Island. They were very attentive to our needs and respectful of our privacy. This property was spotless and the amenities exactly as advertised. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic and private setting, this is really a special rental.
