Waimea - Kamuela Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Spacious Free-Standing Cottage with Two Lanais
Our self-contained one-bedroom, 500 sq.ft. ohana cottage is light, airy, and very comfortable. It is located on the gorgeous, sunny side of upcountry Waimea, also called Kamuela, on the Big Island of Hawaii.
It 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 and check out time is 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 wished they had booked the cottage for longer stays and many have returned after traveling to other parts of the Big Island.

We loved staying here! Great location for adventuring all over the Kona side, very clean and modern cottage, super comfortable and a wonderful place to land at the end of the day. Highly recommended! Thanks so much, Loring!
