Property description

Newly built 700 square foot self-contained living space in a private, separate wing of the house. The bedroom and living areas are filled with light, looking out to gorgeous views of the three mountains - Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai. Enjoy the fully equipped kitchen, dining area, cozy reading nook in the living room, spacious bedroom with walk-in closet, brand new bathroom with walk-in shower, wireless internet and Direct TV (movies, tv shows and music channels).

The teak bench in front of the cottage is a perfect place to sit and watch the clouds play over Mauna Kea. Out the back door off the kitchen, there is a new gas barbecue and table and chairs for dining or enjoying sunsets or the bright starry nights. There is also a storage chest full of beach chairs, boogie boards and snorkel gear for your use.

Our 3-acre property has a large house we recently remodeled to include the guest cottage at one end of the house. My husband and I live in a separate wing on the other end of our L-shaped home. The two living spaces are separated by a covered lanai with fencing and landscaping providing privacy for each dwelling.

We respect our guestsʻ privacy and enjoy our own. We are also happy to answer questions you may have to help you enjoy your stay on the island. We will be happy to steer you to our favorite restaurants, beaches, walking trails and island adventures.

We enjoy gardening and have planted fruit trees, some vegetables and herbs and many flowers. You are welcome to share fruits and vegetables that are ripe during your stay - we often have bananas, lilikoʻi, or papaya and fresh herbs.

Situated on the 'dry side' of Waimea, we are half way between Kawaihae and Waimea town, ten minutes drive from both. The best beaches on the island are 10-15 minutes away.

Located at 1800 foot elevation, our days are sunny and warm. Temperatures cool down in the evening - perfect for a good nights sleep. Cardinals, doves, finches and other birds fill our quiet 3-acre property with song.

The little town of Kawaihae is 10 minutes drive in the other direction and also has some great restaurants, a great place to buy fresh fish, the Puʻukohola Heiau national park and picnic tables by the bay.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: After living in the Sierra Nevada for 30 years, John & Catrinka came to Hawaiʻi in 2007, bringing along Lucca, their Golden Retriever. Although retired from working as a therapy dog, Lucca continues to spread good will and joy to everyone he meets.

Why the Owner Chose Kawaihae:
We love the quick and easy access to both town and beach. This is our favorite climate zone with warm sunny days and cooler nights. It took us five years to find just the right place - 3 acres on a quiet street with expansive views out to three mountains, and space and sun to grow mangos, papayas, bananas, avocados and lilikoʻi. We love the community of Waimea and the great snorkeling beaches just down the road.
