Waimea Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Capture the essence of authentic Puako, just steps away from the ocean while vacationing at artfully designed and decorated Hale ‘Oma’oma’o iki.

Hawaii Tax I.D. No. W36468583-01

This inviting, colorful and exceptionally clean cottage has been expertly renovated and restored with fun and playful décor. A simple and well thought out floor plan offers all the essentials needed for an intimate, comfortable, and harmonious dwelling. Filled with light, a rainbow of complimentary colors and new everything, one cannot help but enjoy themselves and delight in this home and setting.

Situated on a large private lot, this lovely cottage also has lush tropical landscaping, a welcoming outdoor shower and two wonderful lanais; one for viewing the sun rise over majestic Mauna Kea and the peaceful Puako kiawe forest, and another for enjoying a refreshing beverage and relishing the day’s adventures.

Come experience Puako's great beachcombing, magnificent sunsets, abundant tide pools, turtles, some of the island's best snorkeling, scuba diving, and favorite surf spots. One can choose between Paniau Beach at one end, Wailea Beach with its white pristine Hawaiian sand and aquamarine ocean at the other, or any of the many beach access points that dot scenic Puako Beach Drive in between.

Hapuna State Beach Park is also located nearby and is a prime spot for body boarding, sunbathing, sand castle making and one of the best beaches in the entire state.

This is undoubtedly a great spot to enjoy the beauty of the island, a tropical lifestyle, the sights, sounds and scents of Hawaii, only as Puako and the surrounding area can deliver, at an authentic vintage cottage.

Perfect for a couple or those with small children.

Fantastic little house on the landward side of Puako Beach Road. Easy access to the sea through walkways, but no view from the house. Very short drive to Hapuna beach - a postcard perfect beach with white soft sand, warm water, and waves rolling in to bob in or body board. Also a nice snorkeling beach even closer. House is very well appointed with a small over/under washer and dryer, hair dryer, outside (only) shower, very comfortable bed, futon in the living room, and a small kitchen as well. Back porch is great for sitting and reading or eating (serves as a dining room). Also has a TV and DVD if you want to watch a movie.

Gregg is very easy to work with. We recommend this place wholeheartedly - particularly if you do not want to be in a developed, resort-type vacation spot. This is just relaxed and pleasant.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 4 night stay at this perfect cottage. The property is well maintained and has beautiful yards. We enjoyed the backyard patio with the nice breeze everyday. Everything is so green and lush! The cottage had everything we needed, the kitchen was well stocked and there were plenty of towels for showering in the really awesome outdoor shower and the beach. The beach is a short 5 minute walk across the street and very easily accessible. There is a general store less than a mile away that carries a little bit of everything. There are a bunch of birds that hang out on the property and the wild pigs like to roam around behind the property at night. It was pretty cool to hear them and they were not a bother at all. I highly recommend this property as it was extremely clean, well stocked and a wonderful place to stay. Gregg was great to deal with.

Lovely Pauko Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We signed on to stay for a week or so at Puako Beach Cottage, site unseen. We were delighted by everything the moment we arrived. Charming decor, beautiful gardens, totally clean, great access to the ocean across the road for watching sunsets, and lovely backyard sunrise watching. All we hoped for and more. Communications were prompt and friendly, everything was easy and fun about staying there. Highly recommended!

Tranquil Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation in this sweet cottage. The house is well situated close to the beach but on a nice piece of land itself. Big yard for our two small kids to run around in. We loved walking the shoreline and happening upon sea turtles or finding the perfect shell. It was a wonderful stay and I highly recommend this cottage.

I never wanted to oak up and come home from this wonderful village of Puako! The house was the perfect size for my husband and I to spend 12 days together. We enjoyed the barbique and the back porch in the warm evenings. We loved the wild turkey and grouse that seemed to find their way to the water right through the yard. The sounds of the birds in the morning was amazing. Thank you Laurel and Gregg for checking in with us and making sure we had everything we needed to have a great holiday. We will certainly be back!
