Recent Kamuela (Waimea) reviews

  • Charming property with all the amenities

    "My husband and I enjoyed a lovely stay in the Garden Studio on the same property as this cottage (Waimea Gardens). There are three units - two in the separate cottage, and the studio that is attached to the main house. The garden studio is tastefully decorated and has all the amenities, including wifi, TV, travel and other books, comfortable linens, small kitchenette, and an assortment of fresh fruit, bread and eggs for breakfast (excellent quality and very tasty)! The layout is unique but accommodating. The bathroom has little privacy so you should select this place only if you are staying with someone you are very familiar with. But even though the studio is attached to the main house, there is adequate separation so you don't feel like you are intruding into the owners lives, or vice versa. The owners (Barbara and Charlie) are very friendly and helpful too. Waimea Gardens is located very close to Hawaii Preparatory Academy and is within a couple of miles of the center of Kamuela town, which has several good restaurants and interesting stores. The grounds are lush and full of fruit trees, with chickens and even a wild turkey and peacock roaming around. All in all, a very comfortable and high quality B&B."

  • Sunny warm days and cool evening breezes!

    "Kelly’s vacation rental is a little piece of heaven, quiet and very comfortable and clean, with a well equipted kitchen so you can cook your own meals and eat when you want or take a stroll down the road to a nearby restaurant. The views are spectacular and you are surrounded by hilly green farmland and cool breezes, which are wonderful especially if you’ve been visiting any of the spectacular beaches during the day. There is so much to explore on the Big Island and after enjoying many day trips, coming home to this peaceful reatreat was the icinging on the cake. Thanks to Kelly and her family for their friendly and welcoming spirit! I would absolutely recommend this rental. You guys are awesome!"

  • Beautiful, clean and well-stocked, perfect location

    "We struggled to find the right property to rent and are so happy we found this guest cottage. There are so many pluses: it is new, clean, so much storage, thoughtfully stocked with some aloe, sunscreen, soap, shampoo. The location is prefect - 10 minutes to a nice little beach at the bottom of the hill, 15-20 to some of the best beaches on the island, 10 to Waimea with food, gas, restaurants, and not *too awful to get to Volcanos, waterfalls, and summit (have caffeine ready for the drive back - it's brutal!) The big island has so much to offer and this was a perfect home base. The lounge chairs provided were super comfy and easy to carry. Boogie boards were provided (but no snorkel in case you were counting on it). Brett was a great host, helpful and friendly but hands off which we prefer. The only negatives, which may not matter to everyone, but I'm listing them here in case they are a "must" for someone considering renting, is that there is no pool (but a beach only 10 minutes away!) and the views aren't perfect. You won't have a lanai to sit on and watch the ocean and drink morning coffee or watch sunsets . If I could add anything, it would be this. Otherwise, really exceptional place and we would return and recommend it to anyone!"

  • Waimea guesthouse

    "we enjoyed our stay in the two bedroom guesthouse. It was great to have a full kitchen, two car garage, and comfortable beds. It was easy to travel to the north side of the island through the ranches and west to Hapuna beach and others where we boogie boarded and relaxed in the sun. Gemma was friendly and very helpful throughout our stay. We'd definitely stay here again!"
