Aloha Adventurers!

Your Hawaii experience begins here. The Big Island is the optimal destination for the adventure seeker and for anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and escape to a relaxing tropical paradise.

The 'lady of the house' works from home as a Health Coach and Artist, and as such, is available for your questions at any time.

Waimea is the perfect town. No, really, it is. It's country, yet cosmopolitan, located smack-dab in the middle of one of the largest privately owned cattle ranches anywhere, home to the headquarters of W.M. Keck Observatory, the most scientifically productive telescopes in the world, filled to overflowing with luscious, farm fresh produce (and farmer's markets) that supply the farm-to-table restaurants Merriman's, Red Water Cafe, Village Burger to name just a few, add to that the top-notch cultural hub of the Kahilu Theatre and don't forget that everything is within walking distance, what more could you possibly ask for?

Watch the video: search for KITV News online, once there, search for 'where you live: Waimea' and watch the video! (apologies, but VRBO won't let me post a link)

On the Big Island, you'll absolutely need to rent a car to get around.

No smoking. No pets. Please observe quiet hours between 9 pm & 6 am.

With Aloha, Zoe and Scott

About Zoe Johnson

Hi! Thanks for stopping by.

We have lived on the Big Island for 12+ years. We love the outdoor lifestyle, hiking, swimming, kayaking & snorkeling as often as we can. In our humble opinion, Kamuela is an absolute gem of a town, the very best place on the Big Island to live. We love the central location for ease of access to both sides of this amazing place, and can't wait to share some of the greatest insider tips with you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The suite is beautiful! Brand new and so many thoughtful touches. Beautiful finishings throughout. Loved having two bathrooms for our family of 4, as well as a washer and dryer to use after we we caught in a mid-day shower. The location is great just 1-3 minutes to all of the shops & restaurants in Waimea. We visited two farmers markets on Saturday and the kitchenette was prefect for preparing our dinner and breakfast. The king bed was so comfortable with nice linens and so was the sofabed. The location was quiet and Zoe and Scott were easy to reach by text on our day of arrival and departure. The directions to the home and to access the suite were easy to follow. We didn't need to contact them at all during our stay as the suite had everything we could have asked for! Highly recommend this suite for those coming to explore this part of the Big Island.

Very comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Nicely decorated apartment with private entrance. Scott and Zoe were friendly and hospitable with great communication. We enjoyed the king sized bed and optional down pillows. Very nice stacking washer and dryer. Having 2 bathrooms was not essential for the 2 of us, but may benefit future guests. Wish we would have more time to check out the convenient walking trail and utilize the water toys.

Three days in Kamuela

Everything was as advertised and beyond. The little apartment is new, all the sufaces are upscale, everything works perfectly and the location is great. It is in a nice little neighborhood with its own yard and covered patio. It felt like going home.
