Kamuela (Waimea) cottage description
The Zen Hale is the perfect home base for your exploration of the Big Island. The unique serenity of this one bedroom, one bath cottage offers ocean and mountain views enhanced by cool breezes and mild temperatures. There is an outdoor BBQ that allows for meal preparation. Create an inspired menu using some of the fruits and vegetables from our organic garden. Luxuious linens adorn the separate bedroom and a beautiful stone shower appoint the bathroom. A separate laundry room with washer and dryer is available for use.
You will find yourself minutes away from the best beaches on the Big Island. The largest of Hawaii Island’s white sand beaches, Hapuna Beach, has consistently been rated on numerous international Top Ten lists. Mauna Kea Beach, a perfect crescent of golden sand leading to calm water, has been voted among the Top 10 beaches in the U.S. Both offer great conditions for swimming, sunbathing, bodyboarding and snorkeling.
Beyond the beaches, Hawaii offers a host of outdoor activities and sightseeing oppportunities. Head to the Paniolo Town of Waimea and visit the many shops and galleries. From there is the perfect starting point for a trip to the Volcano National Park or a glimpse of the stars and planets at Mauna Kea Observatory.
There's no better way to experience the amazing cultural diversity of Hawaii Island than to visit one of the farmers’ markets that take place all arround the island. You’ll find fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables used in Hawaii Regional Cuisine, exotic varieties that are as intriguing as they are tasty plus an eclectic collection of prepared foods.The market is also a great place to pick up handmade artwork or a unique gift and strike up a conversation with the artist who made them.
When you're ready for some relaxation and 'Aloha', come home to the Zen Hale.
Let us know if you will be celebrating a special occasion or have a certain need. We will do all we can to accomodate your request. You will always feel welcome and long to return to our unique retreat.

We loved staying here, beautiful place and atmosphere - and we fall in love with this region of the Big Island, this was our first experience on the island... the elevation in mountains, easy relaxed drive for afternoon swim and sunset at Mauna Kea beach (the best spot for families with children) - thank You for all recommendations. Excellent climate! This was the only place where we had the kettle to boil water... for tea lovers! So great to have beach towels and chairs ... True retreat for body and soul. Thank You!

About the owner: Moved to the Big Island 10 years ago from Portland, Oregon. I have lived all around the U.S. but I feel that this is my true home. Rose and I just spent an amazing month in Nepal and India, but the best part was coming back to Hawaii. In 1999, while attending an alternative building design seminar in Cottage Grove, Oregon, I was introduced to the concept of permaculture. Although the original focus of permaculture was sustainable food production, over time the philosophy of permaculture has expanded to encompass economic and social systems. Today I have my Permaculture Design Certification and also my Permaculture Teacher Training Certification. My passion now is working to make our Big Island property an example of permaculture design, and in cultivating Bodhisattva Healing Gardens to become a place where these healing ideas are shared.
Why the Owner Chose Kamuela (Waimea):
We chose our property for the excellent climate and the proximity to the best beaches and easy access to Waimea town.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is no better place to take a nap in the afternoon or enjoy an evening of star gazing. Our elevation of 1800' provides breezes and milder temperatures and the perfect culture for organic farming.
