BEAUTIFUL VIEWS • CLOSE TO BEACH AND CLOSE TO TOWN

Kawaihae Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Newly built 1 bedroom cottage on 3 acres. Beautiful views, close to the beac

Newly built 700 square foot self-contained living space in a private, separate wing of the house. The bedroom and living areas are filled with light, looking out to gorgeous views of the three mountains - Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai. Enjoy the fully equipped kitchen, dining area, cozy reading nook in the living room, spacious bedroom with walk-in closet, brand new bathroom with walk-in shower, wireless internet and Direct TV (movies, tv shows and music channels).

The teak bench in front of the cottage is a perfect place to sit and watch the clouds play over Mauna Kea. Out the back door off the kitchen, there is a new gas barbecue and table and chairs for dining or enjoying sunsets or the bright starry nights. There is also a storage chest full of beach chairs, boogie boards and snorkel gear for your use.

Our 3-acre property has a large house we recently remodeled to include the guest cottage at one end of the house. My husband and I live in a separate wing on the other end of our L-shaped home. The two living spaces are separated by a covered lanai with fencing and landscaping providing privacy for each dwelling.

We respect our guestsʻ privacy and enjoy our own. We are also happy to answer questions you may have to help you enjoy your stay on the island. We will be happy to steer you to our favorite restaurants, beaches, walking trails and island adventures.

We enjoy gardening and have planted fruit trees, some vegetables and herbs and many flowers. You are welcome to share fruits and vegetables that are ripe during your stay - we often have bananas, lilikoʻi, or papaya and fresh herbs.

Situated on the 'dry side' of Waimea, we are half way between Kawaihae and Waimea town, ten minutes drive from both. The best beaches on the island are 10-15 minutes away.

Located at 1800 foot elevation, our days are sunny and warm. Temperatures cool down in the evening - perfect for a good nights sleep. Cardinals, doves, finches and other birds fill our quiet 3-acre property with song.

About Catrinka Holland

After living in the Sierra Nevada for 30 years, John & Catrinka came to Hawaiʻi in 2007, bringing along Lucca, their Golden Retriever. Although retired from working as a therapy dog, Lucca continues to spread good will and joy to everyone he meets.

Catrinka Holland purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Catrinka Holland chose Kawaihae

We love the quick and easy access to both town and beach. This is our favorite climate zone with warm sunny days and cooler nights. It took us five years to find just the right place - 3 acres on a quiet street with expansive views out to three mountains, and space and sun to grow mangos, papayas, bananas, avocados and lilikoʻi. We love the community of Waimea and the great snorkeling beaches just down the road.

A warm island embrace

  • 5 of 5
The profound love and care you have cultivated in your cottage is quite present; initially in walking up through the gorgeous, colorful landscaping, and again upon first entering, where one feels immediately embraced by the island spirit and deep comfort of home. I immediately felt an explicit and palpable invitation to let go, let down and settle in, which I very willingly did! The thought and planning you put into assuring your guests would have all they need is quite apparent, from the precious little reading nook with plenty books to snorkel gear and beach chairs. Great location, as it affords one a taste of the inland experience with mountain views galore, while offering a glimpse of the ocean that is just minutes drive away as is the lovely town of Waimea the other direction. The owners are quite quiet and considerate, yet should you need anything at all you will not find more kinder, gracious and willing attendants. Among the many moments of pleasure I experienced here, most notable was sitting in the front bench surrounded and embraced by all the delicious flowers and plants during sunset, taking in the last glow of day as the clouds, mountains and ocean availed themselves as canvas to the sunset's paintbrush, seeing owl begin their evening dance across the way, and breathing in the vastness. Those of you considering a stay at this lovely cottage, I say "go for it!"; have and enjoy your notable moments too :-) Mahalo. . .

Beauty inside and out! And the best bed ever.

  • 5 of 5
This charming ohana, which also means family, made me feel comfortable and at home. Beautifully appointed inside, the outside is breathtaking. And the happy garden of flowers and fruits attests to the good energy. AND...the king size Beautyrest mattress is the best I have ever slept on... plus I found out it was made in Hawaii. No wonder it's so full of aloha! My star rating is EXCELLENT.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
I loved sitting and enjoying my morning coffee watching the sun raise over Mouna Kea and Mouna Lea. Then doing a few Sun Salutation to welcome the day. Loved being only 15 - 20 minutes from the ocean. Cooler nights at the higher elevation. Clear nights the star were amazing. I look forward to returning soon.

John and Catrinka are a great resource to find the best the island has to offer.

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This property was a wonderful place for a comfy getaway. The unit is in perfect condition, spotless and very nicely appointed. We lacked nothing. The unit is attached to the main house, but we felt a nice sense of privacy and quiet.
The mountain view is beautiful, the sunsets amazing.
Ours hosts were gracious and non intrusive, they gave us great advice about where to shop and the best beaches. We will definitely return, in fact, i wish i was there now!

I had an issue with the bed , not comfortable at all. No WiFi, no internet, smart tv OR cable. It was a disappointment there's was no cable to unwind to. We had a hard time unwinding in evenings. Too close to owners home . Every window we tried to open curtains exposed us . We tried to go outside n chat, in back or front . It would've been perfect if the bench was moved to bedroom window side fir privacy . We come on vacation to be alone , catch up. Nice people , nice location .

Owner's Response: Lani, I wish you had spoken to me while you were here so we could have addressed these issues and helped your stay be more comfortable. We do have wireless internet. There was a flat screen TV and DVD player with videos while you were here, and we have just added Direct TV with hundreds of movies, TV shows and music stations. Though we had not heard from other guests of any discomfort, we have replaced the bed with a new King-sized BeautyRest pillow top mattress and box springs that are highly rated on Consumers Reports. We have created even more privacy with additional fencing and landscaping and constructed a private outdoor dining area for the cottage. Aloha, Catrinka
