About the Property
Studio with full bath
Conveniently located, GFO is a compact studio that sits between Mauna Kea & Kohala mountains on Sunny side of Kamuela (Waimea), Hawai'i. 1-2 miles to countless great dining and shopping in downtown Kamuela, 10 miles to Hapuna and other beautiful world renown beaches. It is a quiet neighborhood (not far from HPA campus) with easy access to multiple facets/climates of this Island. Active health oriented community. Ideal for independent travelers, a single or couple on vacation or business.
Accommodations include a comfortable double bed, with full bath & well equipt kitchenette that allows you to eat in if you wish. There are dishes, pots, pans, eating and cooking utensils, a ¾ sized refrigerator with separate freezer, one burner butane cooktop, microwave oven, coffee grinder & makers and rice cooker. Access to gas grill.
Pasrty, juice & fruit are provided for morning after arrival. Please inform me when booking if you have specific dietary needs.
Several good farmer's markets are available through the week: Wed 9-2pm, food stalls, jewelry, fruits & vegetables, baked & sweet delights; Sat 7-2, two separate markets, with food stalls, fruits & vegetables, plants, florals, local island cheeses, gifts, and an herbalist. A good health food store in town.
Recommend rent a car, our island is large and public transport not convenient for travelers. Airport rentals are easiest and best rental car rates, usually obtained a few weeks prior to arrival. A GPS is helpful especially if arriving in the evening, it will bring you here directly. The Hele On Bus stops on the road near the house, rate $2.00, $1.00 for senior. Please check: (http://www.heleonbus.org/schedules-and-maps) for schedule. The Hilo/South Kohala map shows routes that lead to hotels & beaches. The Waimea Shuttle is our local area.
This is a non smoking, no fragrance property. If you do smoke, please go for a walk to do so, thus smoke doesn't linger about buildings or neighbors'. Please dispose of cigarette butts in closed glass container with water to eliminate odors. Place in recycle center.
