The 'lady of the house' works from home as a ceramic artist, and as such, is available for your questions at any time.
Waimea is the perfect town. No, really, it is. It's country, yet cosmopolitan, located smack-dab in the middle of one of the largest privately owned cattle ranches anywhere, home to the headquarters of W.M. Keck Observatory, the most scientifically productive telescopes in the world, filled to overflowing with luscious, farm fresh produce (and farmer's markets) that supply the farm-to-table restaurants Merriman's, Red Water Cafe, Village Burger to name just a few, add to that the top-notch cultural hub of the Kahilu Theatre and don't forget that everything is within walking distance, what more could you possibly ask for?
Watch the video: search for KITV News online, once there, search for 'where you live: Waimea' and watch the video! (apologies, but VRBO won't let me post a link)
On the Big Island, you'll absolutely need to rent a car to get around.
No smoking. No pets. Please observe quiet hours between 9 pm & 6 am.
