PEACEFUL STUDIO APARTMENT WITH INSPIRING VIEWS OF MAUNA KEA

Waimea - Kamuela Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Aloha E Komo Mai! (Welcome, friends!)

Experience the captivating beauty, quiet and charm of upcountry Waimea while staying in this graciously appointed and meticulously kept ohana studio apartment. Ideally located, this gem of a studio is in a prestigious neighborhood on the sunnier western edge of Waimea Town, just minutes to town center and restaurants and services, and 15 minutes down the hill to the best white sand beaches on the famous Kohala Coast. Horseback riding, hiking and eco-adventures are all within easy reach in the picturesque North Hawaii countryside.

This hillside retreat is tucked away on the slopes of Hoku'ula, one of Waimea's gorgeous pu'u (hills). With windows on three sides, it enjoys wonderful light and peaceful views of neighboring properties and of majestic Mauna Kea, slopes to summit. From your private lanai, the southern exposure allows you to experience both a glorious Mauna Kea sunrise and the fiery skies of a Kohala Coast sunset.

The accommodations are perfect for a single or couple on vacation or business. There is a very comfortable memory foam queen-size bed with good-quality bedding and towels. The well-equipped galley style kitchenette allows you to eat in and prepare a home-cooked meal if you wish. There are dishes, pots, pans, eating and cooking utensils, a full-sized refrigerator, two-burner propane cooktop, microwave oven, toaster oven, coffee maker and rice cooker. There is a washer and dryer, shared with the upstairs apartment, in a separate laundry room.

Please enjoy the photos by our friend Ethan Tweedie for a glimpse of the studio and of beautiful Waimea.

Jeanne Oshima is a retired flight attendant who worked for a major airline for almost 30 years. She knows a lot about hospitality and, after countless layovers in many hotels, she knows what makes for a good night's sleep! She has tried to create a space that she would like to be in -- clean, inviting and comfortable with tasteful furnishings, high thread count cotton sheets, good pillows and fluffy cotton towels. Also a foodie, she has equipped the kitchen with everything one would need to create a home-cooked meal. Originally from Honolulu, she spent most of her adult life in the San Francisco Bay Area where she was based and moved to the Big Island with her husband in 2005 after retiring.

Tom Bailey is a retired software engineer who was introduced to Hawaii by his wife, Jeanne. Originally from Pennsylvania, he has always enjoyed the outdoors and instantly loved the beauty and peacefulness of Waimea. He is a movie buff who enjoys reading, hiking, bike riding and improving his woodworking skills utilizing Japanese joinery techniques.

Jeanne Oshima or Tom Bailey purchased this studio in 2000

Jeanne and Tom chose Waimea, or Kamuela, as the place they would retire to, falling in love with the beauty and open spaces of the area. They purchased this unique and special property that combines 2 dwellings, one in which they live and the second that has an apartment upstairs and a studio below which are both rentals. Jeanne's mother and father were both born on Hawaii island and she has always had a close connection to the island, visiting relatives as a child on vacation from Honolulu. After spending most of their lives in an urban environment, Tom and Jeanne wanted to retire to a more rural setting, but with essential services and a hospital close by. Waimea fit the bill. Plus, after years in Northern California, they appreciate the good sleeping weather of Waimea with cool nights that are similar to the SF Bay Area. No air conditioning required!

A relaxing stay in a beautiful area with all the creature comforts. Exploring the island from a central location and coming home to shops, eateries and services in a local community. Cooler weather at 2,800 feet above sea level makes for great sleeping without air conditioning, but the warmth of the coast is just 15 minutes away!

We spent 10 days on the Island with this wonderful studio as our base. It felt like we were tucked into the hills of the Shire, albeit with a heated towel rack and Netflix, while being only minutes from town and the Kohala coast. Tom and Jeanne were also very kind, taking time to chat to us about the best places to visit and such, depending on where we were heading for the day. I can't imagine finding a nicer place to stay, and look forward to visiting again someday!

This may be the best VRBO we have experienced. Perfectly designed space, thoughtful touches (a heated towel rack!), free laundry, great views, easy driving distance to beaches, private lanai, terrific hosts. We would stay there again!

My husband and I spent a month at this wonderful studio and would recommend it WITHOUT any reservations (no pun intended). Hosts Jeanne and Tom are friendly, helpful, caring people who went out of their way to accommodate our needs as guests. The unit is spacious, comfortable, furnished with everything needed for our stay. It more than met our expectations. Views from the house and hillside above are simply spectacular. Kamuela is a lovely little town, well situated to explore both east and west coasts of the Big Island, and just about15 minutes from good beaches. We would absolutely consider a return stay -- and hope to do so soon!
