AN ABSOLUTE GEM! IDEAL LOCATION FOR EXPLORING HAWAII ISLAND.

Waimea - Kamuela Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Located 3 miles out of town on the sunny side of upcountry Waimea, the Carriage House Cottage as it is often described, provides an ideal location for exploring the beautiful Island of Hawaii. Beach goers will enjoy the short ten minute drive to Hapuna and Mauna Kea beaches, while those who want to take to the road and explore all the island has to offer will find this desirable location an ideal choice.

Located in the heart of the famous Parker Ranch, nearby historic Waimea provides you with stunning pastoral views, unique shops, terrific restaurants and the small town Paniolo charm famous throughout Hawaii.

Located thirty five minutes from the Kona airport, and an hour and fifteen minutes from the Hilo airport, this central location provides easy access to the entire island including the famous Kona coffee district, Hawi, the Kohala and Hamakua coasts, as well as Hilo and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Waimea is also the most convenient location for those who wish to visit the Mauna Kea Summit and visitors center.

The carriage house is a fully detached private guest cottage on a third acre lot within the South Kohala View Estates Subdivision. With off street parking, private entrance and fully furnished accommodations, you will find this an excellent choice for your next visit to Hawaii Island.

These are just a few of the comments we often hear from our guests. 'Wow, this is lovely' 'It looks just like the pictures' 'It's so clean' 'The location is so convenient' 'It is so well designed and appointed, I could live here' 'You should be charging more' :)

We're confident you too will enjoy the Carriage House Cottage.

My wife was born and raised in Hawaii, while I was raised in the San Francisco Bay area. We enjoy gardening, walks along the coast, sunsets at the beach and tinkering on the house, just to name a few.

Brett Kennelly purchased this cottage in 1993

Although I was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, my wife was from Hawaii. As a child growing up in Hawaii, she always dreamed of living in Kamuela (Waimea) We purchased the property while still living in CA and planned to build a rental home. After living here, we've come to love this very unique place and decided to stay. Based on responses from guests, we believe you will feel the same.

Charming and Cozy, the carriage house is your home away from home during your stay on Hawaii island.

Excellent Find

  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2014

This was a real find, beautifully maintained with everything you would ever need to make your stay comfortable including a washer/dryer and parking is provided right on the property. The owners supply beach towels, beach chairs etc. for trips to the beaches. Although on the owner's property it is very private. As others have noted it is located on the main road but with the central a/c and well built windows we never found that it disturbed us plus the bedroom is on the end away from the road. It is located about half way between the beaches and the town of Waimea which is very convenient as there are restaurants, grocery stores and farmer markets in Waimea to get supplies but only 10 - 15 minutes down to the coast to the beaches. Also located on the dry side which can make a huge difference. Good base to explore the north end of the island, can even do a day trip to the Volcano Park. We were there as our son and his wife just had a baby and were very close by but their place was too small to stay with the mother in law already there. We will not hesitate to stay in this unit again on our next trip to see the family. The only people I would not recommend it to is someone who cannot handle stairs as it is on the second floor and requires climbing stairs on the outside. The owners Brett and Susan are extremely helpful with any questions you may have but respectful of one's privacy. All in all a perfect place to stay for someone who wants an immaculate quiet place to relax after a busy day of sightseeing.

This was a very nice place and the owners are great. I would definitely rent that place again and recommend it to others. Be aware the cottage is above the garage and there are many stairs to climb.

Great, new, private spot close to Hapuna and amenities of Waimea

We stayed in the carriage house which was fully stocked with all the basic kitchen items you'd need to prepare meals, a large master bedroom, and pull-out couch. The large unit is brand new and the owners have clearly put a lot of care into the space. After all, they lived in it while the main house was being constructed. This would be great for a family or for a couple looking for a few nights in a relatively affordable place close to Hapuna Beach and all the sights to see on the north side of the island.

The accommodations are on the west side of Waimea - a 5-minute drive into town for shops and restaurants and 20-minute drive to the beach. The carriage house is located right on the highway so if you're very sensitive to noise you might find that is a factor. But given that the bedroom was furthest away from the highway and that the owners had put triple pane glass in the unit it didn't bother us.

The owners are great. Very friendly but respectful of your privacy. If you like Waimea or you prefer not to spend the big bucks on the resorts this is a great spot to stay.

Very nice unit in a convenient location, close to good beaches, and good selection of dining opportunities. Waimea has a fully stocked grocery store and several gas stations which make it an ideal base to explore the north coast of the Big Island. We would stay in this unit again!

Great Base for North Shore Vacation

This one-bedroom/one-bath rental provided us with a very clean, private and comfortable place to stay while we were vacationing on this side of the Big Island. Lots of amenities, and the owner was very gracious. Not the kind of place to stay if you want a mai-tai-sipping-lanai experience, but great as a home base for this side of the Big Island.

Mahalo, Brett and Susan!
