Great Location, Panoramic Views, and Privacy!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent 6 weeks at the Kohala Cottage. The cottage, which is really a house, was as advertised and was clean, comfortable and well stocked with linen and kitchen ware, as well as a washer and dryer in the garage, which was really convenient . Among the better features was the privacy and ocean views that the house afforded. It is in a quiet, residential neighborhood and other houses are a distance away. The ocean views are panoramic and change with the time of day. Good beaches and good restaurants are only 3 to 8 miles away with an easy drive.

The kitchen was very functional with good appliances. We did feel that additional overhead lighting in the kitchen area would be an improvement as at times it just wasn't bright enough during meal preparation. Additionally, more substantial beach chairs, a full size beach umbrella and boogie board/s would be a welcome addition.

The property manager was pleasant and professional and available as needed and the owner also indicated she was available at any point in time.

We would definitely recommend the Kohala Cottage as a Big Island destination.

Beautiful Ocean Views and Sunsets

  • 4 of 5

We three stayed here for a week over the xmas holidays and the location is perfect for heading to the best beaches on the island, the best coffee in Waimea, and the best macadamia nuts (free samples!) just down the road. Loved hanging out on the patio, and cooking up fish on the grill. Nice quiet neighborhood and views from the master bedroom were great. Enjoyed walks along the nearby shoreline trail. Of all the lunch spots, we loved the freshness and value at Kawaihae Kitchen. The house was a very hot upon our arrival, so ask for it to be 'opened up.' The loft is good for older kids (not young ones), and can be a bit warm. We ate in a lot, and the kitchen had everything we needed.

Gorgeous Views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights to finished up a 3-1/2 week stay on the Big Island over the xmas holidays. The house was spotless, roomy and nicely decorated. We loved the expansive ocean view and enjoyed seeing the whales + babies breaching in the bay in the distance. Was a perfect base for exploring the north end of the island. Hawi, Waimea and Waipio Valley were only a short drive away. Enjoyed the more local and less touristy beaches in this area - Mahukona “Beach” (basically an abandoned sugar company harbour) is a great hangout. Parking at beaches near the resorts fill up quickly so you have go early. Da Fish Shack was the best! A few very minor cons were that we found there were too many mosquitos to enjoy the lanai in the evening (coils and spray provided for those who want to brave it though!) Also it is in a residential development. Even though the houses are a good distance apart you will hear the neighbours leaf blower(s.) This place was a bit on the pricey side for us but we were willing to pay for the terrific views - would be a great value for a larger group and would stay again if sharing. Would recommend this place for families or couples wanting a well appointed place to hang out.

Great location, beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

This house was a great choice for staying north of Kona. The location was very close to great beaches, the lovely Kohala mountain road, and Waimea. We appreciated the availability of water toys and towels. The view from the Lanai and master bedroom were great. The listing description was accurate and appropriately represented the appearance of the house and the amenities. The property was clean and well-maintained. My only suggestions for improvement: the property was very warm the first night, perhaps opening it up a bit sooner before guest arrival would ensure guest comfort. I would recommend the property to other Hawai'i visitors.

Fantastic views and heavenly breezes

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Kohala Cottage (it's really a house, not a cottage) in January. It was exactly like the photos, very comfortable, roomy, and private with an open floor plan and gorgeous views of the ocean from the lanais off the living room and master bedroom and through the sliding glass doors to both rooms. It was also very clean and nicely decorated and the kitchen was well equipped. There are beach and picnic accessories which are very helpful.

It is located in a small residential neighborhood with the houses at quite a distance so there is a lot of privacy and it is very quiet. It is very convenient to beaches and good restaurants.

We were very pleased with the accommodations and the owner, Lisa, is easy to communicate with and provides back up for the property manager. I would highly recommend this property as a great alternative to a condo or hotel.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was just right for our family of 3 and is in the most perfect location if you are looking to stay away from resorts and be close to the best beaches. Our favorite was getting fresh fish from Da Fish House and bringing it back to BBQ and watch the sunset, amazing views of the ocean and a great hammock! This is not a neighborhood where houses are right next to each other, you have space! Perfect for traveling to Hawi, Waimea (natural food store located here!), and Hilo was an amazing drive, much faster than if you were in Kona. The house is stocked with everything you need for cooking at home and the owners and property manager were quick to reply or help with whatever was needed. Toys and movies for our girl to play with while we chilled at the house and buckets, umbrella, chairs, boogie board to bring to the beach. Close to some great restaurants and a botanical garden right up the road! Sushi Rock in Hawi is a must as was Merriman's in Waimea, each a close drive away. Indeed we did not want to leave and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much Lisa!
