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.

sweet retreat

  • 5 of 5

What welcoming hosts to a cozy private relaxing getaway. Was my first time in Hawi, and hopefully not my last. Loved sitting on the screened in lanai with nothing but greenery and sky to view. Quiet and conveniently located to all I wanted to explore. Loved the town, and was a quick ride to the Kohala coast for sun and surf.

So glad we made this cottage our home base

  • 5 of 5

From the fresh fruit to welcoming hosts, fresh flowers to an adorable dog - we loved our stay at Helen & Mike's Ohana cottage. The space was perfect for our needs - enough space to cook, relax, dine, even work, and the view was amazing.

Hawaiian Country Life

  • 5 of 5

This Hawi cottage is located in rural Hawaii where you can enjoy the scent of gardenias and garden views. We were met in Hawi by Olivia who personally escorted us to the cottage. Owners, Helen and Mike are wonderful hosts and we were happily greeted by their Swiss Mountain dog, Mirrhi. They were helpful with information on local beaches and restaurants and treated us to fresh eggs laid by their chickens (the girls). We had a wonderful meal at Sushi Rock as well as coffe and Tropical Dreams ice cream at the Kohala Coffee Mill. This is the perfect place to experience Aloha and the Hawaiian country life.

This cottage just up the hill from Hawi was perfect for us! It's comfy and relaxing with lots of privacy. We loved the rural feel and sounds: hens in the yard, sheep downhill, cattle mooing, wind in the trees. Open the French doors for the view towards Maui. The citrus trees rigt outside your door provide delicious fruit!
