E komo mai! Welcome to Ohia Lehua Cottage, managed by local owners David and Linda! We were both raised on the Big Island, where we have established our businesses and raised our three girls in the small town of Waimea. We are both involved in the community, and have had endless experiences on the Big Island, from hiking in the valleys to fine dining on the beach. So, if you are looking for an adventure or a quiet getaway around the island, do not hesitate to ask! From Hilo, to Kona, from mauka (mountain) to makai (ocean), back to our home in Waimea, the opportunities are limitless. (#W40904842-01)

A Fantastic Home Away from Home
We loved the five nights spent at the Ohia Lehua Cottage. The location is on a quiet street on the cool side of Waimea and is perfect for exploring the northern end of the Big Island. Nestled among the tall trees that sway and sing in the wind, the Hamakua Coast (with the Waipio Valley and Honoka'a) is just a left turn down the Mamalahoa Highway to the left. Turn right, and downtown Waimea is less than 5 minutes away. Continue about 20 minutes further and you'll get to the Waikaloa Coast beaches and hotels.
All the amenities that make the cottage a home away from home were there for us. A microwave and small range with oven, along with all the silverware and cooking utensils, are standing by if you want to cook. (We didn't because we wanted to try all the great restaurants in the area!) A small refrigerator is in the kitchen area for your cold goods. But if you need something bigger, step out the back door and into the attached garage where you'll find a full size refrigerator and stacked washer dryer for your exclusive use.
Extra towels, blankets, fans, heaters and even wood for the fireplace are also all provided, giving you options if the temperature is too hot or too cold for you. During our stay, the temps were perfect and we left the windows open almost all the time to catch the breezes.
Between the location, the comfortable bed, the awesome shower, the WiFi, and the charm of staying in a home that felt like it was in the middle of a forest, this was a remarkable stay and we hope to return soon!
Truly a beautiful spot couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay very relaxing quiet awesome views close to town thanks again Linda will be back
Perfect base camp!!!
This was the best place to stay in Waimea for my husband, myself and our 30 year old son who lives in Honokàa but joined us for the week.The accommodations were amazing! Comfortable bed, more than enough bath and beach towels , wood-burning stove (it’s chilly y’all in Waimea:), beach chairs with umbrella, fully stocked kitchen, great grill and a wrap-around deck with a killer view! The owners were out of town but their daughter, Kristi, totally took care care of us from beginning to end with a welcoming loaf of banana bread and fruit to allowing us a late checkout...and this little cottage is so convenient to everything but enough away from Waimea to be very quiet and peaceful! We can’t wait to come back and stay here!
Nothing but superlatives
Second visit (see February review). House is delightful, host is the best. No vog!
I have loved my 8 nights here and the peaceful quiet place! I saw the owner when I checked in and have come and gone my time with no interaction from the owner which has been good for me! If I had needed anything they would be available as they left their phone number! I would love to stay here again the next time I come to the Big Island!
Perfect for our stay.
The Ohia Lehua cottage was perfect. Everything we needed (and more) was available to us. The location was close to stores and places we wanted to visit but the cottage itself was private, peacefully quiet and lovely, inside and out. Would definitely stay there again.
