Waimea - Kamuela House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4) SEND INQUIRY FOR SPECIAL RATE !!

The Lokilani Hale is prefectly located on the dry and sunny side of Waimea (Kamuela). Our peaceful, two acre retreat is ideally situated 5 miles up from the best Kohala Beaches and 5 miles down from Waimea Town.

The mountain and ocean views are enhanced by the mild temperature our 1700' elevation provides. This private cottage is a romantic honeymoon hide-a-way or comfortable 2 bedroom home base for a family on an adventure. Enjoy the luxuious spa bathroom complete with copper soaking tub for two and private garden.

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 the Paniolo Town of Waimea and visit the many shops and galleries.

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.

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.

When you're ready for some relaxation, come home to Lokilani 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 at Lokilani and long to return to our unique retreat.

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

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

If our calendar at the Lokilani Hale is full, please contact us as we have other beautiful homes that may be available for your desired dates.

We had a conference at Hapuna Prince but wanted something more homey than a resort. Lokilani was idealic. Great location only 5 miles away from the beach and Waimea. Cool breezes and peaceful surrounding coupled with incredible night skies made for a perfect getaway.
You have easy access to anywhere on the island. We hiked at Polopu beach, the calderas at Volcano national park and Kalopa State park. Snorkeled at Hapuna beach (thanks to Matt having gear).
Dined at Merrimans, Village Burger and Luna in Waimea. Also had a great meal at Jackie Rey's and at the Seafood Bar nearby. We even managed to attend the 4 days of our conference. And always came "home" to Lokalani.
We look forward to coming back.

Perfect 1st time experience

  • of 5
This was my first vacation to the Big Island and my first time staying in a VRBO. Both far exceeded my expectations! The round house is beautiful and tastefully decorated. Matt was gracious and provided fresh eggs & papaya. The gardens are beautiful. Every morning we stepped outside to watch the golden sunrise. The quiet of the evenings helped with sleeping after days of hiking, sightseeing, snorkeling, and attending the conference at a nearby resort. Definitely am recommending this to everyone as a great place to stay.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Lokilani for 9 nights to celebrate our anniversary and couldn't have found a more perfect place. The cottage itself is absolutely beautiful and very well taken care of. It is evident that much love and thought were invested in creating a place of quiet retreat. Located in the Waimea Valley, you will be nestled into the soft hills with the most amazing views. There are bountiful herbs growing right outside the main entry and Matt will welcome you with kindness and generous offerings from his garden, not to mention eggs from his sweet chickens. You are a very scenic 10 minute drive from some of the most beautiful beaches we encountered on the island, as well as Waimea town, where we found yummy gluten free breakfast bars at the local coffee shop!

You will have everything you need provided for you in this home, and Matt was a phone call away whenever we needed anything. We drove all around the island and spent 2 days on the Volcano side, immediately missing the special calm of Waimea. It has certainly become our favorite part of the Big Island and largely because of our experience staying at the Lokilani.

Favorite restaurants nearby include the Red Water Cafe, Blue Dragon Musiqarium, and Seafood Bar! Highly recommend the same guidebook listed: "Big Island Revealed" for useful tips. Our favorite activities included visits to the Waipio Valley, numerous beaches recommended in the guidebook (including Punalu'u or Black Sand Beach where sea turtles are frequent, tide pools at Wawaloli Beach, and our favorite swimming beaches minutes from the cottage - Hapuna & Mauna Kea Beach next to each other). Also recommend the dolphin swim & nighttime manta ray snorkel with Coral Reef Adventures - absolutely magical!!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that Ana enjoyed everything that we love about our retreat. The quiet calmness and the wonderful climate our location has to offer is exactly why Lokilani is where you want to return to after a day of exploration. We enjoy sharing the organic fruits and veggies from the gardens and "The Girls" are more than happy to provide eggs.

We hope Ana will return for another visit. We enjoyed having her as a guest and enjoyed sharing the Aloha of our home.

A SPECIAL Place

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from 12 days at Lokilani. It was simply wonderful!! First off, Matt was quite the host. He not only shared his recommendations about our adventures on Big Island, but shared all the wonders of the property. We loved having fresh eggs from the girls, quite an experience for us. We marveled at all his successes with growing herbs, fruits and vegetables and enjoyed them as if they were treats because we knew all the care that was involved. Everything we learned kept making the experience more special.

The house also was incredible. Everything we needed was there. And the outside kitchen was the best! Matt put a lot of thought into everything he put into the house. It was so comfortable. Simply opening the windows and running the fans we always enjoyed a cool breeze and great sleeping weather.

We frequently went into the town of Waimea to pick up anything we needed and enjoyed the local restaurants. One morning we decided to try Hawaiian Style Cafe for breakfast and what a treat it was. We discovered Blue Dragon Restaurant on our last weekend (only open Thursday thru Sunday) and enjoyed live music and great food. Venturing out to the towns around the island was lots of fun for dining treats, shopping and exploring. Hilo, Hawi, Greenville Coffee Plantation, drive on Saddle Road, Scenic Route north of Hilo, Volcano National Park, farmers markets, and everything inbetween...be sure to stop and check out each little town along the way.

We enjoyed the beaches and the hike connecting them from Spencer Beach Park to Mau'umae to Mauna Kea to Hapuna. It was important to us to catch the sunset daily if possible. We also enjoyed hiking Waipio Valley, Pololu, .....

We strongly recommend this spot and will never forget it. Thanks Matt.

Thank you again!!!!

Well, I'm so sorry our stay is over. Everything has grown so much. Gordon and I love staying with Matt and Rose. They bend over backward to make sure our stay is wonderful. Now, since they have planted all these edible plants...and with the eggs from "the girls", you hardly have to shop for food! As usual, the accommodations are excellent, views are beautiful, and the birds!!! What a way to wake up! Love it !
Thank you so much Matt and Rose, we just love visiting Hawaii and staying with you. The beach is minutes away, and Waimea is minutes away!! We were going to go out for dinner, but just stayed in because...why go out when you have perfection at home!!!
