"We just returned from two weeks on the Big Island. Our second week was in Alice's Cottage. The home is very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed, plus a beautiful patio to enjoy the scenery. The photos were a true representation of the Cottage. Alice was always available and turned us on to all "local" attractions which made our time more enjoyable. The views were outstanding overlooking the Kohala coast. Both Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea were spectacular and right in view. We were 7 miles from the town of Waimea and located on the dryer side. The house location allowed visiting Hawi and Waipio Valley an easy and spectacular drive. We suggest having barbecue at The Fish and Hog; live music and food at the Blue Dragon. Thanks, Alice!!"

"My husband and I just love this place! This is our 2nd year to stay here and we plan to return next year too. Its conveniently located between Waimea and the beach. This cottage is so well organized and clean and aesthetically pleasing. Its comfortable to sleep at night for the evenings are cool. There is a lovely deck where we ate all of our meals. And the best part are the delightful hosts who tell you about wonderful places to go that you might not find out about otherwise and they are so quick to answer questions."

"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."

"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!"
