Overview

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.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place. Secluded from the crowds near the resorts. Beautiful view of the mountains (when it is not cloudy). Peaceful, quiet and cool at night. Well furnished.

Just right!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect size for two like a great hotel suite but with more! Beautiful views of the mountains (volcanoes) and countryside--very serene. Location proved to be a hub for touring the island and a wonderful place to "get home" to after a long day of looking. The bed was so good (king size and firm) that we are purchasing one for our home just like it. Kitchen was unique once you got used to it with no stove but very adequate and fun. The backyard setting with the lounges, table/chairs and nice gas barbecue worked great. Can't think of anything that was missing as it included TV, movies, games, books, beach towels and toys, washer/dryer--virtually everything you need. Suggest you wait to shop for food in Waimea until after you arrive as there will be some items already there you need. Hosts Katrinka and John felt like long time friends although barely visible allowing for your privacy. The on-line representation is exactly what you get--comfortable, convenient and very clean. We'll be back!! L and L

Sweet little hale

  • 5 of 5

The first of three locations we visited on the Big Island. It was a hub to the ocean and to the mountains. John and Catrinka have furnished this CLEAN and very comfortable cottage with every amenity necessary to be at home away from home. The view was expansive. Easy drive to ocean, town, and hiking and a great place to return to after our daily adventures. Our hosts were delightful, but not obtrusive. We will return.

Excellent suite for 3

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with the suite. It's almost new, impeccably clean, quiet, spacious and has a great view across 20+ miles of rolling grasslands and snow capped mountains. Our hosts were ideal, helpful but not intrusive, and we would go back. Best VRBO stay we have had thus far.

Owner's Response: Weʻre glad that sleeping on the twin bed in the nook worked well for your daughter since sheʻs not too tall. Your timing was perfect to view fresh snow on Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa while you were here. It was a pleasure meeting you.

Wonderful hosts with a well-designed ohana in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is an impeccably-kept, functional, independent living space in a quiet, private location with great views, away from the resorts, yet a quick drive to snorkel at some of the best beaches! Hosts with lots of aloha make it the perfect place to experience the clean Waimea trade winds and beautiful sights of the Kohala Coast. We totally enjoyed our week-long stay and look forward to returning!

n.b. This is a great location for those wishing to avoid VOG.
