Located in the ultimate country setting, this comfortably rustic OCEAN VIEW cottage is situated on a private gated property with breathtaking VIEWS of ranch land and a 60 mile unobstructed VIEW of coastline. Tranquil and quiet, only those that appreciate magnificent sweeping VIEWS, wide open spaces and starry nights need inquire.

The cottage is ideally set between Hawi and Kamuela (Waimea) on the drier part of beautifully scenic Kohala Mountain Road (hwy 250). Return to the comfort and coziness of the cottage after a day of exploration. The cool elevation is refreshing and the expansive OCEAN VIEWS are unforgettable. A great place to reflect over the days journeys; plan tomorrows adventures or simply write, paint, meditate, yoga or indulge in a great book.

Perfect for low-impact, less is more type of traveler.

Cottage MAXIMUM capacity is 2 persons (a child at any age is a person).

Cottage size: 236 sq feet under roof PLUS 345 sq foot lanai.

Cottage is on a slope and the large lanai (deck) is 20 feet high off the ground. Makes for amazing VIEWS- but not suitable for guests with height issues or problems climbing up and down stairs. see photos.

- Cottage MAXIMUM capacity is 2 persons (a child at any age is a person).

- Located at 3500 ft elevation, temperature ranges around 55 degrees during winter months to mid 80's most of year. It can be cool and like most of the Island, the tradewinds can be stiff. Although we are on the drier part of the Island, it does rain from time to time. Very refreshing, cozy and beautiful!

- Cottage is on water catchment and DELICIOUS for drinking right out of the tap. It is triple filtered, recently tested and exceeds the county standards.

- Smoking is allowed outside -- not in cottage. Located in drier environment, must be fire conscious and water conservative (but comfortable!)

Welcome to the Big Island - you will love exploring here!

Incredible Ocean Views in a private, quiet setting.

Aloha,

I am a professional concierge/ travel director and event coordinator/manager. I grew up on the Big Island and recently returned after 15 years on Maui. It's great to be home!

Our 'Ohana (Hawaiian for family) enjoys meeting new friends, exploring the great outdoors, adventure, travel and more! We deeply appreciate the peace and tranquility of our home and look forward to sharing it and our knowledge of the Islands with you.

With gratitude, Maile and 'Ohana

WHEN LEAVING FOR THE DAY

1. Smoking allowed on Lanai, please make sure the fire is out as we are in a volatile fire area.

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
This little cottage is awesome! The view from the front deck is great. It was sparkling clean. The bed was comfortable. Lots of beach toys to borrow, in good condition and some looked brand new. Full sized washer/dryer on owner's back porch available for use. Description is very accurate and pictures tell the true story. It is small, but spacious enough for 2. The deck is good sized, so provides more living space. The outdoor shower does have a roof and walls and is fun! With the stairs, it definitely is not for anyone with mobility issues. Lots of nice touches such as candles on table on deck, kona coffee and other basic kitchen items, toiletries in bathroom in case you forgot something, etc. Linens and towels are nice. Everything in very good condition.

This is a wonderfully peaceful and beautiful get-away spot, that is still close to town and not too far away from great rainforest hiking to the east and top-notch beaches to the west. Drive into Waimea is a good 15 min up the side of the oldest volcano on winding, but good road. Not a bad drive at all, but is a drive. Owner is friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this cottage!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Victoria!! mahalo nui loa for the awesome review. It was very kind of you to leave one. Its our first review on VRBO - and WOW!! We deeply appreciate it and YOU.
Since then, we have had 2 more VRBO guests and they enjoyed themselves as well. Still learning how to navigate VRBO. Our Airbnb is the best so far.
We were unschathed by the hurrincanes and earthquake thank goodness.
Mahalo also for leaving the cottage in GREAT condition upon check out.

Hope this note finds you and yours well.
With gratitude and much Aloha,
Maile, Jason and the animals
