Self-contained streamside cottage at Waimea Gardens is nestled in the lush foothills of the Kohala Mountains, just two miles from the charming village of Waimea and less than nine miles from the Big Islands most beautiful beaches.
Waimea is the perfect central location from which to explore the island's exciting diversity: volcanoes, white sand beaches, fine dining, waterfalls, horseback riding, Mauna Kea summit adventures, and Hawaiian cultural activities. The town is both bucolic and sophisticated -- the perfect place to get it all or get away from it all. Well-known restaurant critic had this to say about our restaurants: 'For a town of 8,500, little Waimea is turning into a culinary mecca. That may have something to do with the fact that it sits amid some of the state's best farms and ranches. Waimea is all about locally sourced food.'
The Kohala cottage has one bedroom/bath/kitchen, with sitting room that sleeps third person. Included are daily maid service and breakfast provisions as well as other amenities enjoyed in the finest resorts: robes, hair dryers, beach towels, TV/DVD, stereo/cd, and high-speed internet access via wifi.
Waimea Gardens has been welcoming repeat and first-time visitors for almost thirty years and has become a favored home away from home for people the world over. Please be sure to visit our website -- click on 'More Information and Photos' below.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely stay in the Garden Studio on the same property as this cottage (Waimea Gardens). There are three units - two in the separate cottage, and the studio that is attached to the main house. The garden studio is tastefully decorated and has all the amenities, including wifi, TV, travel and other books, comfortable linens, small kitchenette, and an assortment of fresh fruit, bread and eggs for breakfast (excellent quality and very tasty)! The layout is unique but accommodating. The bathroom has little privacy so you should select this place only if you are staying with someone you are very familiar with. But even though the studio is attached to the main house, there is adequate separation so you don't feel like you are intruding into the owners lives, or vice versa. The owners (Barbara and Charlie) are very friendly and helpful too. Waimea Gardens is located very close to Hawaii Preparatory Academy and is within a couple of miles of the center of Kamuela town, which has several good restaurants and interesting stores. The grounds are lush and full of fruit trees, with chickens and even a wild turkey and peacock roaming around. All in all, a very comfortable and high quality B&B.
