80/Night ...2BR/1BA House in Rural Kamuela

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Centrally located to most fabulous Big Island attractions, world renowned beaches, mountain biking, world class golfing, star-gazing with astronomers atop majestic Mauna Kea, halfway to Hilo, the gateway to Volcanoes National Park, this 2 bedroom, 1 bath house with full kitchen provides affordable accommodation for the adventure traveler.

Situated at a cool 2700' elevation in the saddle between Mauna Kea and the Kohala mountains, amid the Historic Parker Ranch, this cute downstairs duplex with separate 2 car garage for your use, sleeps 2-4 comfortably, private and quiet in a rural, working class neighborhood (no parties or loud noise please). Great for couples, friends, families, perfect for neighbor island or mainland kamaaina coming home to Big Island for family, sporting or other special events. If you would like to see the whole island, this a great location for you.

We are located about 20-30 minutes from the Kohala Coast beaches and resorts, an hour from both Hilo and Kona towns. The weather in this part of the island is similar to New Zealand in that it ranges from blustery tradewinds and rain to Idyllic, warm and sunny, with night time temperatures sometimes dipping into the 50's in the winter months. The surrounding landscape is lush, pastoral rolling hills and fields, complete with horses, cows and sheep.

The property is a quarter acre, 3 bedroom duplex, 2 bedroom/ one bath house with a 2 car garage for guests downstairs, separate upstairs apartment in the back, owners on site, available to help out with any questions you may have, but very private and quiet. We take care of cleaning and maintenance, thus keeping prices most affordable.

The house is 900 square feet, tucked away behind the front garage, large yard, with a king bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds in the second bedroom, full kitchen for dining in after a fun day adventuring, 5 miles from Kamuela town featuring a full range of culinary delights from finest dining to local deli style and everything in between, local produce from the farmers'markets, Zumba and fitness centers, yoga available for those in mind of a healthy vacation experience.

Our neighborhood is small, working class, kid friendly so we just ask for your respect and careful driving.

Should you have any questions regarding activities, sights to see, just ask, call or email. We've been living and playing here on the Big Island for 30 years, love it and happy to share any information to enhance your vacation experience.

Great, cozy house

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Gemma's house! Everything inside is very well thought through, all our whims - from boogieboards and board games to extra heating fans were catered for. Gemma was very friendly - she greeted us once in person - and responsive. Also, the house location is great - it is close to pretty any attraction in the north of big island - Hapuna beach, Waipio valley, Pololu Valley, Hilo botanical garden - you name it. Down the road there is an abandoned-looking avocado tree - so with little effort we got free avocados as well (I hope we did not step on anyone's toes :))

Perfect place to stay in Kamuela!

  • 5 of 5

I would absolutely recommend this guesthouse as it was central to many things to do on the Big Island. There have been other reviews commenting about the roosters and barking dogs but it really wasn't bad at all. The place was clean, private, and lots of hot water for the shower! Very reasonably priced.

Wonderful 2 bedroom Ohana!

  • 4 of 5

Cute, clean, and plenty of space. I would absolutely stay here again. It's on the Hamakua side of Waimea, just out of town. Close enough to shopping and food. You have your own space inside and out. I never met the owners but was welcomed with a nice letter explaining the house details. I was in a work conference all week and it was very nice to go back to a quite and clean accommodation. The solar water was hot even after many days of rain. One recommendation I would provide is buy new sheets for the king bed. The sheets were rough and old from too many washes.

Mahalo for a home away from home!

Owner's Response: We so appreciate our guests comments and suggestions. We have already purchased another new set of CalKing sheets for the master, we do keep three sets of sheets available in the guesthouse for all the beds at all times. Guest comfort and satisfaction are our top priority. Mahalo Nui Loa.
