About the property

Studio Cottage with views of Maui over rolling hills.

This charming cottage is located 2.5 miles above Hawi town. Perfect if you want to getaway.

Wake up to a beautiful rural Kohala morning with a cup of your favorite kona coffee as you watch the Island of Maui in the distance. The views are breathtaking, and the countryside is green and fragrant with Hawaiian tropical flowers. If you want to leave your hideaway retreat you can go down to historic Hawi town where you can view local artists' creations in galleries, or just sit in the cafe and watch how the locals live. You won't want to miss our lively Saturday morning farmers market under the banyan tree in the center of town. Visit the neighboring town of Kapaau to see the King Kamehameha statue. Swim and snorkel at one of the nearby beaches. You can enjoy lovely walks right outside the cottage on quiet country roads or hike down historic Pololu valley and walk on the black sand beach. Relax in the evening with a refreshing drink while watching the ocean from a screened in lanai.

Located at the perfect elevation to be cool at night and warm during the day.

Hawi is a charming little town just a few miles away. There are excellent restaurants, coffee shops, galleries etc.

Drive to beaches and more.

5 minute to Mahukona (closest snorkeling)

20 minutes to Kawaihae (fishing, whale watching and scuba dive trips)

25 minutes to world class beaches (Mauna Kea & Hapuna)

35 minutes to Kamuela (Waimea)

Also close by are farm tours, zip lines, the Kohala ditch adventure, horse back riding, surfing, beaches, hiking and more.

The owners live next door with their large friendly Dog Mirrhi and 4 Hens known as 'the girls'.

During the winter season it can be cool enough where you will need a sweatshirt in the evening.

I spent a lot of time, looking long & hard at what was available. I loved the homey look of the cottage. We were welcomed by Helen & Mike. The whole atmosphere is wonderful. This is a good place to venture out from. It is a long way to anywhere, but the good part is the tourist-free spirit we found. Everything works and is kept up. Thanks for the month.

Thank You

  • 5 of 5

The bed was comfortable, the ice plentiful. We appreciated the "little" touches: paper towels, salt and pepper, oil and vinegar, fresh squeezed morning orange juice .... all of it quite thoughtful.

Most thoughtful vacation rental yet

  • 5 of 5

Really felt like a home away from home. Regarding the property itself, it was very clean and everything was as promised. Everything you'd need to enjoy a vacation I'm Hawaii is here. I was impressed by all the small things that one might forget: a flashlight, insect repellent, body surfing board (no need to rent one), robes, beach towels and all kitchen devices/utensils needed to feel comfortable. The driveway is even lit up with blue spotlights at night to make the place easy to find in otherwise pitch black night.

The owners, Mike and Helen, live next door (they are renting their guesthouse). We never felt intrusive nor did we ever feel our privacy was compromised. They were extremely welcoming and encouraged us to ask them if we ever needed anything. They also provided some fresh fruit from the garden as a welcome gift. The property manager, Olivia, is just as caring. At one point during our trip I lost my glasses and she really went out of her way on the weekend to try to help me out.

Hawi is on the north end of Big Island, but you can explore much of the island comfortably from it. Pahoa/Puna areas are about 2 hours out so that would make for quite a bit of driving per day. Overall though I would 110% recommend staying here and we plan to return here on our next trip.

Havi Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very nice rural cabin. We avoid 'resort' settings and the Havi cottage was ideal. Located close to some old friends so we were able to hang-out with them and enjoy the surrounding area. The property owners and our VRBO-Havi host Olivia were extremely helpful.

a great rural holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, roomy cottage in a great rural location. It was exactly what we wanted: a non-resort Hawaiian holiday. Great view of Maui from the Lanai (and the yard). Owners were great. They were very helpful, even given us the occasional eggs from their free running chickens (aka "the girls"). They also invited us to their Super Bowl party which was really good fun.

The area had good road bike riding (which one of us was there for) with a bonus of getting to finish every ride with a final 3 mile, 1000 foot climb up from Hawi to the cottage!

Decent restaurant or two in Hawi, but we cooked for ourselves most of the time and the kitchen of the cottage is well equipped. Remember this is rural, so for any sort of shows or entertainment, you likely have to go to Waimea (19 miles, we saw a great slack key show there one Friday evening) or even farther afield, though the Bamboo restaurant in Hawi has music on Friday and Saturday nights. For the most part you want to be able to entertain yourself.

Highly recommended.
