  • Beauty at 1500 feet

    "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!!"

  • he place is wonderful, and everyone loved it!

    "Hi Pattie. We had a great time at Hale O Kip. When we walked in everyone said, "Wow, what a great place!" That was a great start for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration. Everyone loved the pool, especially the grandkids. The view was wonderful, and the beaches just 10 or so minutes away. We went to the Macadamia nut store and processing plant near by (ten minutes), the Kona Coffee plantation and the other sights near Kona (about an hour) and the Volcano National Park (about 90 minutes away and well worth it). However we spent a lot of time relaxing on the Lanai, or watching the stars from the roof patio (can a patio be on the roof?). Last of all, the convenience of the supermarket, drug store, etc. just a few minutes away in Waimea was a real plus. Thanks, and we will be in touch again in the future. The place is wonderful, and everyone loved it. Robert and family"

  • You cannot do better than this.

    "I stayed in Jeanne and Tom's ohana for 3 weeks and had everything I needed. It's very quiet and private. I estimate the nearest visable neighbor to be at leasty 300' away. There is a large private lani with an outstanding view of Mauna Kea. It's so dark at night that the stars seem to jump out at you. The ohana is large, modern, exceptionally well furnished with top quality furnishings and very clean. This is by far the nicest place I've ever stayed. The owners are the nicest people you can imagine. I consiser myself lucky to have found this place. If I return to Waimea I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else."

  • Didn't want to leave

    "What a wonderful way to start off our first visit to the big island! The previous reviews were very flattering, so after rethinking our home base location, we decided to give this listing a try. We are SO glad we did! Waimea is a great place to stay if you want to explore as much of the island as possible. The carriage house is even more beautiful than the photos show. After a long day of exploring, it was a treat to come “home” to such a clean & comfortable space. We cooked several meals there & were pleased to find condiments & other basics such as sunscreen provided. Previous renters had left behind items like bottled water & the owners were thoughtful enough to leave them for us. Less time in the grocery store = more time for exploring. Yes, the carriage house is near the road, but as previous reviews mentioned, it really isn’t an issue (and I’m an extremely light sleeper). Right from the very first inquiry, Brett was quick to respond to any questions we had. He has wonderful advice & if it hadn’t been for him, we might have missed the beautiful north shore area. Both he & his wife were very respectful of our privacy – such great hosts. Thank you both for giving us the opportunity to stay with you! – it was very hard to leave!"

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.
