About Linda Grimes

My parents met and got married on Oahu in the mid 1940s. My mother was a pilot and mechanic at Hickam Field. They moved to Georgia and I grew up there. I bought this land with my sister and mother and moved to Hawaii. I have spent much of my life traveling the world and now my sister has moved and i stayed and i am a jewlery designer. I still travel to Asia alot searching for treasures for my jewlery, and have started this vacation home and the farming. I love plants and animals so this life has been great.

Linda Grimes purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Linda Grimes chose Captain Cook

When I first saw this property it was nothing but a thing called christmas berry but I knew it was where I should be. It was a long slow process turning it into what it is today, but worth every bit of it. Now, I just love being here.

Magical Oasis

  • 5 of 5
We have wonderful memories of our time spent at Hale Meow Meow. Linda greeted us like we were old friends, and by the time we left, we considered Linda like family. Linda recommended wonderful places to us a bit off the beaten path to snorkel, and hike. The cottage and gardens are magical for northerners from Canada and a great escape, and we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable holiday to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary! We had morning coffee with Pueo and enjoyed a greeting from him every evening. Linda is a warm and kind host, we couldn't have asked for anything more. We hope to return again some day. Thank you Linda!

Land of Enchantment

  • 5 of 5
Hale Meow Meow IS the land of enchantment!
At about 1500 feet above sea level, the days are warm and evenings refreshingly cooler.
Linda is the consummate host- delightful to talk to, generous and very accommodating.
We appreciate her love, passionate artistry, and boundless energy that creates this Garden of Eden.
The cozy and spacious, multilevel home is uniquely designed and filled with beautiful art and furnishings from around the world. We were especially awed by the lush and colorful garden, which is visited by tropical birds, geckos and a chorus of frogs in the evening.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Linda and her charming felines for sharing their sanctuary of serenity with us on Hawaii.

Extraordinary Relaxation. . .

  • 5 of 5
2 weeks home and I am still missing the peace and beauty of Hale Meow Meow. Simple, quiet, comfy bed, easy nicely stocked kitchen, delicious wonderfully appointed and covered outdoor shower, and abundant natural beauty out every window. I did not know how much I needed a retreat exactly like this until I was there.

We had planned on staying at 2 or 3 different places around the island over our 9 day stay. I am so grateful that I reconsidered once I discovered Hale Meow Meow and made it 'home' for our entire stay - except for the night of our arrival. (Because we were arriving at KOA after dark, Linda suggested that we stay close to the airport that night, grab breakfast in Kona, do our grocery shopping and head south, down the coast to her retreat, in the daylight. Great idea!)

By choosing to stay only at Hale Meow Meow, we did log some miles in the car and we cared not a whit! Our outside focus was scuba (cannot rave enough about Big Island Divers!) and snorkeling with a few land destination spots thrown in, our personal focus was quiet time together away from hubbub and distractions. We had the perfect vacation, and I do not say that lightly.

Hale Meow Meow is not a 4 star resort. It is not for those who want room service - from food to bed turn down, lots of activity, cocktails at the bar and a full spa (nothing wrong with those, btw!). It is for those who want to spend relaxed time off the beaten path in a sweet cottage on land obviously loved, open to nature and filled with peace.

Linda is a delight - giving us all the privacy we might want (There are no sight lines between the main house and the cottage complex, it felt 100% private.) and ready to share stories, garden tours (do ask, the work she has done is astonishing), and if you are lucky a peek at her jewelry studio as well. Our screened fruit basket outside the back door would miraculously fill with the abundance grown on the property while we were out. And. . . if you are a cat lover. Pueo, the feline mayor, will happily come cuddle and connect or just pass by. . .

I am hoping to return within the year. May those of you who visit find the same peace that I did.

Beautiful setting. Get your supplies in Captain Cook and make your way to a haven you won't want to leave! The kitchen is well stocked for a vacation rental and we had no difficulty cooking full meals. The outdoor grill is perfect for searing tuna or cooking burgers and steaks.
In the evening, the geckos and other nocturnal critters will sing you to sleep. Beds are very comfy.
Linda is warm and welcoming. Oh and DON"T MISS diving or snorkeling with the Manta Rays. We went with Big Island Divers and had a very good time!
It is an adorable cottage. So cute, I am afraid it will be booking up well in advance, once the word gets out! Make your reservations soon!

Island Gem

  • 5 of 5
We spent Christmas here and loved everything about this wonderful "Zen Den". The pictures do not begin to describe how cool this place is. From the fruit trees where you can pick your morning breakfast, the art work in every corner of the cottage and property, the view of the setting sun and brilliant stars at night, to the wonderfull chats with our hostess and her cats, this place is simplly cool and wonderfully relaxing. If you are looking for a place that has good karma, a place to relax after a day of adventure, a true Hawaiian home and not a resort this is the place for you. You won't be disappointed.
Mahalo for a wonderful Christmas!!
