Hawai'i has been my home since early 1970s. Have lived on Kauai and now Hawai'i since 1993. Hawai'i island is the youngest land on Earth, she expands my heart and it is my pleasure to share this information that you may enjoy your time on island.
Jean Cluff purchased this studio in 2011
A private comfortable studio, good parking and easy access to whatever adventure calls.
Close to everything, yet feels like an oasis. Private and peaceful.
You're ohana was a perfect place for me to start my life in Hawaii. It had everything I needed to live day to day. Better than a hotel by far. I always felt I had all the privacy I needed and you were always a responsive and delightful host. The wonderful bananas from your tree were just icing on the cake. Thank you for your kindness and true Hawaiian aloha. Mahalo.
My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay. The place was clean, comforting, and peaceful. Jean was a great host. I hope to be back again one day.
Great base in Waimea to explore the Kohala coast and Mauna Kea. Jean's cottage was lovely and well-designed! We enjoyed the cozy kitchen, which was compact but had everything we needed. Also, she thoughtfully provided bread, fruit and juice for the first day which was a great touch. Jean has a great gentle spirit and was pleasant to talk with. Will definitely come back if we visit the Big Island again.
I stayed here as for almost a month as I was performing at the Hawaii performing arts festival.
Everything was just perfect, Jean was a fantastic host, the house was immaculate and there were lots of lovely little touches!
I prepared food in the house daily and had all the utensils etc that I needed. I was sad to leave and would definitely return!
Fabulous house in a brilliant location to explore the whole island!
We really enjoyed our 11night stay in Waimea. The suite was comfortable and had a nice homey vibe. Everything was clean and well maintained. Waimea town was cute and convenient and I definitely recommend the Big Island Brewhaus for dinner.
Just a delightful place to stay with all the needed amenities and even some extras for the more environmentally minded. Our hostess was caring and friendly and we were able to do everything we wanted to!
One block from HPA campus. Coming from ocean on Kawaihae Road just before 'Y' junction. Look for sign: Waimea 2, Hawi 19, go slow, the driveway is next turn on the left. From Waimea town, note same 'Y' junction, 2nd turn on the right.
