Recent Kamuela (Waimea) property reviews

  • Great location and wonderful rental cottage

    "My husband and I were on the island for 2 weeks for work, and knew that we wanted to be up in the Waimea area. This area has much natural beauty, and a very pleasant climate. We found some beautiful hiking nearby, and could see the amazing stars at night. It was just a short trip down to the beach if that was in the plans. We were pleased to find Marie's rental cottage. It is comfortable, private and peaceful. Marie was very helpful and provided us with everything we needed for our stay. I would recommend this as a long term rental to anyone who wants a great home base for their time on the Big Island. Great place, great hostess, great location!!"

  • Best of our Big Island sampler

    "We stayed in three rental cottages on our first trip to the Big Island, and this was our favorite and the one we will definitely return to. We loved being in cool ranch country, in a much quieter area than Hilo (when cruise ships are in) or Kona. Waimea has no crowds and really friendly people. Access to beach, mountain, farmers markets, good food, bird watching -- couldn't have been easier. And if you feel like taking a day off from driving, the cottage has plenty of space to spread out and a nice kitchen for cooking. Local ribeye steaks and delicious poke (Kim chee tako, or octopus!) from the store and you are all set. Mahalo, Libby!"

    "I couldn't recommend this place more. It is located in an ideal part of Waimea, in a beautiful house, with very gracious owners. The studio itself is very clean, warm, and inviting. The nice Koa furniture, nice Kitchen, quality entertainment system, and large bathroom (with towel warmer) makes this place a great bargain and an ideal place to stay. And the view of the rolling hills of Kohala and of Mauna Kea from the back patio!! What a treat!!!"

  • Escape from Portland, Oregon

    "This was the perfect place to stay for my time on The Big Island. The cottage is just as adorable as the photos would indicate. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The owner was delightful and always available for anything that might be needed. As it turned out, everything we needed was already supplied for us! Don't miss Merriman's (In Kamuela) for lunch. Pau's is also very good. On the shore try Lava Lava, and Tommy Bahamas for lunch."

Kamuela (Waimea) Travel Tips

Kamuela Condos: Paradise at a Lower Price

Hawaii. Just the word brings to mind images of hammocks, palm trees, brightly-colored flowers and exotic fruit. If paradise could be defined as one spot on earth, Hawaii just might be that spot. If you've always dreamed of vacationing in Hawaii but never thought you could afford it, give Kamuela house rentals a try. Kamuela condos are vacation rentals that often have a much lower price tag than a hotel room and give you a totally different view of your vacation spot than the average hotel. Vacation rentals aren't just one room like a hotel room; they're a whole condo just like one you would rent to live in year round -- and they usually come fully-furnished as well. Who needs a hotel when you can rent a home away from home?

Swim With the Dolphins

For a once in a lifetime experience, plan ahead and reserve time slots up to two months in advance for you and your friends and family at Dolphin Quest. For all age groups, this program lets you swim with trained dolphins, take photos together and even learn to give the dolphins commands to do tricks. Kamuela house rentals also put you within a half hour's drive of Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, an unforgettable helicopter tour over the coast that includes aerial views of thousand foot high waterfalls and lava spewing from volcanoes into the ocean. Kohala Coast vacation rentals are your ticket to amazing attractions like these and more.

Mix Dinner up, Mexican-style

Kamuela condos are within miles of Tako Taco Tequeria, a lively restaurant that serves Mexican-style food and iced drinks. Try a plate of nachos or an order of fish tacos with black beans, and wash it down with a margarita or beer from the bar. The outdoor seating and live music makes a visit here a real fiesta.
