About Christine Bailey

We've been residents of the Big Island for over 30 years and have settled into the quaint community here in North Kohala. We enjoy swimming, snorkeling, hiking, and gardening in this beautiful area.

Why Christine Bailey chose Kapaau

North Kohala surpasses other wonderful places we've lived on the Big Island with its lush, green beauty and peaceful country atmosphere.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the pristine coastal views and gorgeous sunsets seen from the property. The sound of the ocean here is

very calming.

A great, quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place, off the beaten path. You'll need a car to get here and to go places to do things, but that is why it is so quiet and pleasant here. We used this is a base for seeing places throughout Kohala. It does not have a full kitchen, so don't expect to cook a large pizza, but it should be entirely adequate for most people. It was very clean and comfortable, perfect for a couple unless you are looking for exciting nightlife or beaches within walking distance. Others have commented on insects and geckos, but come on folks, this is the tropics! That bozo from Edmonton should be ashamed, killing a shy, harmless and innocent gecko without even knowing what it was. These critters are nearly everywhere in Hawaii, and are really quite beautiful.

The hostess was very nice and helpful, and this was a great place at a reasonable price.

Fun & adventure in North Kohala

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this quiet peaceful place. This cottage is clean & comfortable. The bed is awesome! Wish it had a grill. Laundry was a plus though. Owner was pleasant. It's quite far out from the beaches except for the black sand beach 2 miles at the end of the road. You hike 3\4 mile down to which is beautiful and empty in the early mornings. We went for sunrise at the lookout and hiked down to the black sand beach and over to the next valley lookout where there is a bench with a stunning view. (About a total of 3 hour hike). We checked out all the little towns in the area, drove to the beaches about 1\2 hour drive. And stopped at of 3-4 parks on the way. Had some great food at many restaurants in the area. The burger place at Parker Ranch Center in Waiemea, Sushi Rock in Kaapau, Also visited The Coffe Mill (awesome coffe and ice cream) & farmers market in Hawi. Lots of stuff to do and see in North Kohala! Thank You Christine it was wonderful!

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We like being away from the resort commercial locations. This is it for that. The area around is what we perceive as old Hawaii. The cottage has everything you need. Towns of Hawi and Kapaau are fun. Whale watching at Kapa'a Park is fun. Scenic drive to Waimea is breath taking. We drove 1600 miles in two weeks and saw much of the island. Because the rate is so good we drove to Kilauea and paid for a night there. We wanted to see the volcano glow at night. That was great. Be sure to eat a malasada at Tex's on the northeast shore. Thanks Christine for the stay.

Great short stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay for a few days on the charming north end of the island. It is very close to the lookout and hike to the black sand beach. It was nice to stay here because we got up early and had the hike and beach almost exclusively to ourselves. There are a couple of grocery stores on the way into the area from Hawi town. We saved a lot of money by making sandwiches and breakfasts. There is a very reasonable cafe across from the statue in Kaapau though. The owner was very thorough and we did not lack for anything. It was wonderful to have use of the washer and dryer, even detergent! We really appreciated it and had a wonderful time.

Christmas in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Back for our third stay in the beautiful Kohala Cottage. Christmas in Hawaii is really something special. Instead of snow, there are beautiful and fragrant flower wreaths and leis plus many lovely community events. Warm water for snorkeling at Mauna Kea beach and Mahukona was spectacular. My husband's favorite spot is the ice cream shop down by the harbor at Kawaihai. We hiked in Pololu Valley and drove over the saddle road to Hilo. Waimea is a lovely town with incredible views from the access road. Don't miss the Gallery of Great Things or the interesting art museum at the school. We didn't make it to Volcano this time, but spent more time exploring all the fascinating shops in Hawi and Kapa au'. The Bamboo is our favorite restaurant (along with the Kona Inn's fabulous calamari sandwiches). Christine's cottage is our favorite place to stay, reasonable, but with everything we need. Don't understand the previous comment-the cottage is immaculate and we love the little geckos in the garden. We never had any problems with our wi fi on our I Pad. Have recommended this spot to many of our friends and everyone has loved it. Take the plunge-there is no place like the Big Island!

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The space we rented was generally clean, except on top of the cupboard and under the bed was not cleaned in a long time.

Wifi in the cottage is very poor. Landlady does not want to reset the modem and router because her computer works fine...

The washer and dryer are in the laundry room in the main house.

Bed is perfect, so is the bathroom. The other facilities as AC and screens in the cottage are perfect.

It is equipped with a microwave, a little oven, large refrigerator, electric hotplate, coffee maker, toaster etc. Kitchen utensils enough, but not overdone.

The owner provides a lot of (paper) information about the island.

The cottage is located in the far northern rural area of the island so you have to live with the innocent little gecko's. It is part of life.

In the distance you can hear the surf beating the rocks.

The cows in the neighboring meadow are telling you that they are present.

We loved the place very much with its beautiful, peacefull surroundings.

Would you visit this address again? Absolutely YES !

Owner's Response: We have never had another guest complain about cleanliness in our cottage before, however this senior couple from The Netherlands seemed to have more "issues" than most guests. Another guest on the property at the same time told us that her wifi experience was fine during this time, as was ours, so we think that the wifi difficulty this couple experienced stemmed from their particular tablet. Other guests who stayed in the cottage around this same time had no wifi problems. Geckos are common in all parts of Hawaii, not just in rural areas. We are glad that these guests were pleased with most aspects of their accommodations, and that they appreciated the beauty and peacefulness of our area.

Experience old Hawaii in a newly built, peaceful cottage near Pololu Valley and the historic towns of Hawi and Kapaau, with their wonderful restaurants and many charming shops and art galleries. Pololu Valley is one of the most beautiful features of the island. Our property offers an acre of privacy, surrounded by bamboo and pristine coastline views. Swimming and excellent snorkeling opportunities are close by. Spectacular forest and ocean cove hiking, zip lines, and other eco-adventures are available in this quaint North Kohala community. From our location, drive to the historic town of Kamuela and Parker Ranch, or to the gorgeous beaches of Mauna Kea and Hapuna. This unique part of the Big Island is certainly not to be missed. We request that our guests reserve a three night minimum stay. We look forward to hearing from you. Aloha!
