Centrally located to most fabulous Big Island attractions, world renowned beaches, mountain biking, world class golfing, star-gazing with astronomers atop majestic Mauna Kea, halfway to Hilo, the gateway to Volcanoes National Park, this 2 bedroom, 1 bath house with full kitchen provides affordable accommodation for the adventure traveler.
Situated at a cool 2700' elevation in the saddle between Mauna Kea and the Kohala mountains, amid the Historic Parker Ranch, this cute downstairs duplex with separate 2 car garage for your use, sleeps 2-4 comfortably, private and quiet in a rural, working class neighborhood (no parties or loud noise please). Great for couples, friends, families, perfect for neighbor island or mainland kamaaina coming home to Big Island for family, sporting or other special events. If you would like to see the whole island, this a great location for you.
We are located about 20-30 minutes from the Kohala Coast beaches and resorts, an hour from both Hilo and Kona towns. The weather in this part of the island is similar to New Zealand in that it ranges from blustery tradewinds and rain to Idyllic, warm and sunny, with night time temperatures sometimes dipping into the 50's in the winter months. The surrounding landscape is lush, pastoral rolling hills and fields, complete with horses, cows and sheep.
The property is a quarter acre, 3 bedroom duplex, 2 bedroom/ one bath house with a 2 car garage for guests downstairs, separate upstairs apartment in the back, owners on site, available to help out with any questions you may have, but very private and quiet. We take care of cleaning and maintenance, thus keeping prices most affordable.
The house is 900 square feet, tucked away behind the front garage, large yard, with a king bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds in the second bedroom, full kitchen for dining in after a fun day adventuring, 5 miles from Kamuela town featuring a full range of culinary delights from finest dining to local deli style and everything in between, local produce from the farmers'markets, Zumba and fitness centers, yoga available for those in mind of a healthy vacation experience.
Our neighborhood is small, working class, kid friendly so we just ask for your respect and careful driving.
Should you have any questions regarding activities, sights to see, just ask, call or email. We've been living and playing here on the Big Island for 30 years, love it and happy to share any information to enhance your vacation experience.
My family of 3 (2 adults and a toddler) had a great stay at this property. It was accurately described, clean, and well-maintained. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay: a great kitchen and living/dining room, high quality bath towels and bed linens, and even beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, fins, snorkels, and masks, boogie boards, and a cooler for going to the beach! The location, in a quiet neighborhood a few miles outside of town, was close to a good grocery store and several restaurants (about a 10 minute drive). It was also easy to get to anywhere on the north part of the Big Island. During our stay at this property, we went to several beaches and a couple historic sites on the west coast, Hawi (up north), and the Waipi'o Valley on the east side. We had a minor issue with the washing machine, and the owner fixed it before we left (so we could still do our laundry), and also gave us a gift certificate to a local restaurant to help compensate us for our trouble. I especially appreciated that we could just pay for the one bedroom we needed to use and the reasonable cleaning fee. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet and comfortable place to stay that is a bit off the beaten path but still in easy reach of a lot of attractions.
This tidy house gives you a feeling of neighborhood life outside of Waimea. It's clean, well equipped and within about 20 minutes driving distance to town and nearby adventures. Gemma was really friendly and offered use of all the gear in the garage, as well as washer and dryer, which we greatly appreciated. She had helpful recommendations for safety at the beach and good restaurants. We loved our stay here.
If we could give 10 stars, we would. During our 2 day stay, we had a bit of weather move over the island, including strong winds and heavy rain (very unusual). Jemma, the owner, was fantastic. She helped us w/rain gear (umbrellas, etc), books pertaining to the island and even brought over some homemade jam. She's a very considerate person w/a sweet house and we will definitely be looking her up our next visit to the big island.
Everything we could expect and more! The home feels like a home away from home! It was a business trip for me and 2 of my co-workers. The space was perfect for us. Owner was very responsive and attentive to needs. The house was stocked with the necessities of living in that environment and there was entertainment for all. Next time I'm in Kamuela, I will definitely check this place out first!
Very clean, comfortable and quiet, except for the occasional dog barking. Great get-away for an R & R.
Great vacation rental. The house was clean and well maintained. The description and photos were accurate.Great location for Cooling off after all day at the beach... Only 5 miles to KTA for groceries... I just fell in love with the plants, yard and privacy... I will return Gemma... We loved it... :-)... Aloha
