The White Road Cottage - Experience Beautiful Waimea

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath with amazing views of Mauna Kea & Pu'u O Umi Nature Reserve

The White Road Cottage is our (John & Laura's) beloved little Hawaii home about 3 miles outside of the charming village of Waimea.

We've owned the property since since 2007 and have slowly remodeled and upgraded much of it at this point.

*NOTE: after much deliberation, we've made the difficult decision to sell the Cottage and it will be listed on the open market effective June 1, 2017. Please take this into consideration before submitting a reservation request.

We love the area because we believe we get the best that Hawaii Island has to offer; upcountry cool climate with temps in the 50-75 degree (F) range yet just minutes away from the best beaches in the state (Mauna Kea Beach Resort and Hapuna Beach State Park).

We affectionately refer to our lovely Cottage as an Athlete's Hale (house) because we are surrounded by great training facilities for swimming (Laura's favorite), biking (both on & off road) and running. Yes, we are both triathletes and have competed in 11 Ironman races between the two of us. We have provided more detail on great places to swim, bike and run on our house website and in our onsite house manual.

About John & Laura

We are very active people. Love to swim, bike and run.

John & Laura purchased this house in 2007

Why John & Laura chose Kohala Coast

The Cottage is ideally situated in an area where adventure is merely a few steps or a short bike ride away, whether you chose to hike the White Road Trail, take a road bike ride on the Old Mamalahoa Hwy or tackle Mana Rd as a mtn bike ride or trail run.

What makes this house unique

While staying on White Road you benefit from a year round cool climate, with temperatures perfect for comfortable sleeping, yet you are a short 15 mile drive to one of the best beaches in world.

A true home away from home

  • 5 of 5

John and Laura's White Road Cottage is really everything they said it would be. It was clean, cozy, the kitchen was perfect for our small family, and the bedrooms had the most comfortable beds you could ever sleep in. Of the three rentals we stayed in during our trip, this was my son's favorite, and it was because he truly felt like he was at home.

The weather in Kamuela can be rainy. But don't let that affect your decision. Even when it's raining up in the mountains, a 30 minute drive down the mountain will get you to the beach, where it is beautiful and sunny.

comfy and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We were at the White Road Cottage for a week while attending our son's high school graduation. The cottage provided a perfect location to come home to; beds were comfy, climate was nice, the full kitchen was perfect. Property was clean and maintained. Our favorite pizza joint (Underground Pizza) is just minutes away too. Hope to visit again.

White Road Cottage is a Cozy Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The White Road Cottage was all and more than we expected. I loved the cozy living room and the spacious kitchen. We arrived in time for a tropical storm passing the island of Hawaii, so it was a bit cooler than we expected and the rain kept us from exploring more. However, that was all to the good, because we enjoyed spending time at the house. I would book this house again.
