Property description

Enjoy the comforts and splendor of this original 1932 Ohana (guesthouse) in Waimea’s most private and pristine neighborhood.

A quarter mile from town, this charming home is nestled amongst large private properties with lush green rolling hills and native landscaping. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath has the finest in ‘old Hawaiian’ furnishings with gorgeous garden views from the front porch. A collection of both local art and international pieces enhance the overall experience of the Ohana.

Original craftsman style doors and windows exude the charm of the Ohana complete with beautiful 3” plank hardwood floors throughout, breath-taking front porch views with wood beams and classic Hawaiian floral motif, large gas BBQ offers ideal outdoor living, 300-thread count linens, birds and the noise of nature fill the air with fresh cool breezes.

The Ohana is flush with mature landscaping: large cypress trees, sego palms, bamboo, climbing monstera vines, colorful bougainvilleas, red berries, birds of paradise, gardenias, hibiscus, camellias, iris’s, lilies, a gorgeous fruit producing avocado tree and other indigenous plants throughout. Trails for walks, runs or mountain hikes are footsteps away. Star-gazing is unmatched in this location.

Please note: This home caters to Observatory visitors and HPA & Parker school families. Note: the Ohana is located on a larger property, a short distance from the main house which is occupied year-round by the owners who have two friendly Labradoodle dogs in a secure fenced area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We relocated to Waimea (Kamuela) 13 years ago from San Francisco. Prior to moving to the Big Island, I had been in the Hotel Industry for many years, representing small luxury hotels around the world. When we moved to this property a few years ago, I refurbished our 1932 Paniolo Guest House, or Ohana as a vacation rental. As an avid traveller myself, I created a warm, inviting and tropical residence reflecting the beauty and spirit of Hawaii. I want you to walk in to our Ohana, and hula out! We look forward to having you as our guests. Mahalo!

Why the Owner Chose Kamuela (Waimea):
I had walked by this home for the first time 8 years ago. I fell in love with the entire property. The beautiful lush and mature landscaping, the original hitching post in front of the Ohana where the Paniolos would tie up their horses, the majestic Monsterra creeping 1/2 way up 100 year old cypress trees are just several reasons I fell in love with it. Our Ohana is a perfect private setting for a guest residence. The Ohana sits at the base of our property , it is very private and secluded from the main house. This area of Waimea, coincidentally, is referred to as Nob Hill. We feel it is the most beautiful area in Waimea. We are walking distance to town and the Farmers Markets, beautiful hiking trails are around the corner, and it takes 15 to 20 minutes to get to the the Mauna Kea and Hapuna beaches, both beaches are world class. With all the traveling I have done in my lifetime, the Mauna Kea beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. We are in the mountains, surrounded by the famous Parker Ranch, most of the year you can hear the cows that still graze on Parker Ranch. Waimea is located between Hilo and Kona, so both sides of the island are easily accessible. The climate in Waimea is perfect, cooler evenings and mornings, occasional afternoon misty rains, and beautiful sunny days! You can take a day trip to the Volcano, or visit Hawii (pronounced Havi) and go zip lining, or drive to Green Sand beaches past Kona, any island adventure is possible from this location.
