About the property

Newly built 2 bedroom, 1 bath Ohana in a peaceful neighborhood.

The "Cozy Kamuela Cottage" is a newly built 2 bedroom, 1 bath home located in beautiful Waimea and is nestled at the top of Hohola Drive in a peaceful neighborhood. Waimea, meaning "red water", is the home of the "Paniolo" (Hawaiian cowboy). There is a rich heritage of ranching and farming that has been passed down for generations. Take in the beautiful scenery of Parker Ranch's rolling green hills (once the largest ranch in the world), while dinning at one of the five star restaurants in the area, such as Merrimans. Visit our weekly farmers markets hosted by our friendly local farmers and craft makers.

Also, adventuring out of Waimea is a must! The big island has so many spectacular attractions, from visiting Hawaii's active volcano, Kilauea, to swimming with manta rays at its beautiful beaches. You will fall in love with this special island! Hope to see you soon!

Aloha!

About Jaiya and Tiffany DeCosta

Aloha! Our names are Jaiya and Tiffany, and we are the owners of this cozy cottage. We are husband and wife, and were born and raised here on the islands. We know all about what this beautiful island has to offer and we'd love to fill you in! We invite you to enjoy our relaxing cottage located in beautiful Waimea, on the island of Hawaii.

Jaiya and Tiffany DeCosta purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jaiya and Tiffany DeCosta chose Kohala Coast

We have always loved Waimea's small town atmosphere and beautiful lush rolling hills, so when the opportunity came to own a property on Hohola Drive, we were blessed and fortunate enough to purchase the land to build this "Cozy Cottage". Waimea has everything you need minutes away - specially boutiques, farmers markets, five star restaurants, grocery stores, post office, banks, parks and more! There is even a local movie theater in the historic town of Honokaa less than 15min away. You'll enjoy the refreshing country setting up in the mountain with the perks of being only 20mins away from some of the world's most beautiful beaches.

What makes this cottage unique

We both love the shabby chic decor of our cottage. My wife, Tiffany, has a eye for design and has put her touch on every space to make it feel welcoming and homey. :)

My wife and I loved our stay in this beautiful cottage in Waimea. Quite neighborhood, close to town and the owners were easy to communicate with at all times. We will rebook this cottage anytime.

Conveniently located and good value

  • 4 of 5

Although located at the edge of a suburban subdivision, this cottage proved to more than suit our needs. The pictures are spot-on. It was an easy drive to the Onizuka Center for International Astronomy on Mauna Kea, to the Hamakua Coast and Kohala beaches. Nights were delightfully cool for sleeping. The kitchen is well equipped, the rooms spacious and living area comfortable for evenings.

Fit our need perfectly

  • 5 of 5

We chose this rental for a medical reason. My wife needed extensive work on her vein problems. The Baily vein clinic is located in Wiamea just 5 minutes from this lovely cottage. Some of the best beaches in the world are located just 20 minutes by car from this location. To come back to this cozy cottage after medical work or resting on the beach was always looked at as coming home. Very comfortable, well appointed, and just the right combination of space and layout. The oversized shower is wonderful. The neighbor hood is perfectly quiet. Wonderful sleeping temperatures and one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in! For our situation we couldn't have found a more fitting rental. The owners are wonderful, accommodating our special needs and always being available without intruding. We will be staying here again in the future whenever our travels take us through this part of the world. We give the cozy Kamuela Cottage ten stars!!!! Thank you for letting us stay Tiffany and Jayla.

Stayed Twice...so far! :)

  • 5 of 5

Jaiya and Tiffany are exceptionally kind and thoughtful hosts offering a clean, comfortable, and spacious-feeling Waimea Cottage in one of my favorite neighborhoods close to town. I actually live nearby but rented the Cottage during an out of town friend's visit. My friend and I both very much enjoyed sharing the stylish space in what became our lovely home away from home (we actually returned for a second stay before my friend left town!). The porch is a beautiful place to have coffee in the morning, and the nice beds are wonderful for cozying up during cool Waimea nights ideal for restful sleep. If you are looking for a place to stay in Waimea--I cannot recommend this rental enough. I am so grateful I was able to experience Jaiya and Tiffany's hospitality, consideration, and aloha spirit firsthand, and I'm so pleased to now know that I can direct all my future visitors to such a great spot cared for by such great people. Mahalo, J&T!

Modern and Immaculate

  • 5 of 5

I spent quite a bit of time in this place on a long term project with my work. During this time I stayed at a few other places in the same price range and always came back to the Cozy Cottage it was by far my favorite place. The place has a high standard and everything in the unit is in excellent condition. All of the smallest details have been thought of even down to the aloe vera gel in case you get a sunburn! Tiffany and Jaiya are around if you need them, but otherwise you will not even realize they are close by. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Waimea. I loved being up high where the air is cooler for sleeping and it was super easy to get to town quickly. Highly recommended!!!!

I love this place it was

  • 5 of 5

Jaiya and Tiffany was such sweethearts we actually checked when a hurricane was about to hit the Big Island, They both made sure the house was equipped with flash lights, lanterns and even a case of water. Upon checking in cottage was very clean, being a housekeeper for over 10 years.. I'll know what is clean and that's Important to me. Kitchen is fully stocked with everything, bathroom had more than enough towels and little amenities which I thought was cute. My kids felt right at home doing their homework and sleeping in their own room which was a surprise cause they don't even do that at home so they too was comfortable. I really love this place and the view of Mauna Kea in the morning is so beautiful.

Thank you so much Jaiya and Tiffany!!

We hope you'll be back again and we wish you and your family the best! Warmest Aloha, Tiffany and Jaiya DeCosta
