Comfy and cozy
Jean and her guest house were wonderful. We live in Waimea and stayed here for a week while doing some work to our home. It had everything that we needed plus a beautiful garden and a lovely host.
Very comfortable studio.
We spent 6 weeks at the Green Flash Ohana.. We found it to be comfortable, a great location, and a warm welcome to the Green Flash Ohana, Waimea and the Big Island. I'd recommend staying here to anyone that needs a central location on the Big Island, studio accommodations, and a place to relax.
You're ohana was a perfect place for me to start my life in Hawaii. It had everything I needed to live day to day. Better than a hotel by far. I always felt I had all the privacy I needed and you were always a responsive and delightful host. The wonderful bananas from your tree were just icing on the cake. Thank you for your kindness and true Hawaiian aloha. Mahalo.
Nice, quiet space.
My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay. The place was clean, comforting, and peaceful. Jean was a great host. I hope to be back again one day.
Great base in Waimea to explore the Kohala coast and Mauna Kea. Jean's cottage was lovely and well-designed! We enjoyed the cozy kitchen, which was compact but had everything we needed. Also, she thoughtfully provided bread, fruit and juice for the first day which was a great touch. Jean has a great gentle spirit and was pleasant to talk with. Will definitely come back if we visit the Big Island again.
Fantastic little house
I stayed here as for almost a month as I was performing at the Hawaii performing arts festival.
Everything was just perfect, Jean was a fantastic host, the house was immaculate and there were lots of lovely little touches!
I prepared food in the house daily and had all the utensils etc that I needed. I was sad to leave and would definitely return!
Fabulous house in a brilliant location to explore the whole island!
One block from HPA campus. Coming from ocean on Kawaihae Road just before 'Y' junction. Look for sign: Waimea 2, Hawi 19, go slow, the driveway is next turn on the left, after Waiaka road. From Waimea town, note same 'Y' junction, 2nd turn on the right, before Waiaka Road.
