Overview

Waimea - Kamuela Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Spacious, Free-Standing Cottage with Two Lanais

Hualalai Cottage, our self-contained one-bedroom, 500 sq.ft. ohana is light, airy, and your perfect home away from home! It is located on the gorgeous, sunny side of upcountry Waimea, also called Kamuela, on the Big Island of Hawaii, within a few minutes of the beautiful Kohala coast.

The cottage includes a queen bed, single airbed, tiled bathroom with walk-in shower, large walk-in closet, and a living-dining-kitchen room with all the amenities you will need for making simple, delicious meals.

It is a perfect quiet, serene refuge or starting point for the wonderful attractions of our beautiful island.

The cottage is centrally located, 45 minutes from the Kona Airport and 1.5 hours from the Hilo airport. Our gorgeous beaches are 10-15 minutes away. The picturesque town of Waimea is 10 minutes away, quaint Hawi and Honoka'a towns 30 minutes, and Mauna Kea 60 minutes. We are close to many restaurants and farmers' markets featuring our local fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats as well as wood-fire baked breads and other delicacies.

Our 2200' elevation allows for cooler evenings and nights - perfect for deep and peaceful slumbers!

There is a 'Hele On' bus ($1) which stops hourly in front of the property to take you to and from Waimea Town if you like.

Check in time is 3:00 or later and check out time 12 noon.

An excellent book about our island with information on beaches, hikes, restaurants, and activities is 'Hawaii The Big Island Revealed,' by Andrew Doughty. There is a copy in the cottage for your enjoyment but you might consider purchasing your own before you arrive.

Many of our wonderful guests have remarked that they loved their stay in the cottage so much that they wished they had booked a longer visit. We are fortunate to have had many of our guests return months later!

Please check out additional reviews for Hualalai Cottage under the 'Owner Info' tab, above.

Stay Here--Great Price, Location and Owners!

  • 5 of 5
This comfortable and cozy cottage is in a friendly, safe and quiet neighborhood. The cottage location afforded us beautiful beaches within a 15 minute easy drive! This super location allowed us short trips to the Waipi'o Valley--a must-see! We fell in love with the historic, lush Hamakua coast on a couple of our road trips. Staying at this location, we took side trips to Mauna Kea (dormant volcano--dress warm!), the quaint town of Hawi, etc. The owners, Lloyd and Loring, provided a bounty of local insider info on restaurants, beaches, shops, etc. We have rented over the years many island vacation homes, but we found this cottage to be one of the best in cleanliness, amenities, and true aloha hospitality. We do not hesitate to recommend this sweet cottage and look forward to our next visit!

luxury without luxury prices

  • 5 of 5
Very nice place. Modern and comfortable. Extremely clean. Felt like luxury hotel but with out the noise and high prices. I am writing this review from our resort location on Maui and I have to admit that I would rather be at Loring's. It is in a quiet residential area with a 15 minute drive to the beach. Loring was very helpful in directing us to a calm spot for beginner snorkelers. We felt very safe walking around the neighbourhood even in the evening.

Awesome Location AND Owners!

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleasantly surprised by the serenity and cleanliness of the cottage. Peaceful porch with a yard and a nice view of Mt. Hualalai in the distance. The cottage is private and a parking stall is right outside the cottage. It's a nice "home" feeling. In Kamuela and conveniently close to the Kohala Coast area. Being 2000 feet above sea level made for comfortable and cool temperatures. Nice, especially with lower elevations experiencing 90 degree weather! Mahalo to the owners L&L! Hope to return someday.
