Cute and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Cindy has done a great job of turning her former art studio into a wonderful

place to stay with a very comfortable bed and other amenities! She was a cheerful, kind, hospitable host and very attentive to our needs. We loved being back in Waimea, right in our old neighborhood.! Mahalo!

We had a wonderful stay at Cindy's place. So much so that we even extended it for two more nights once we arrived. :) It was cozy and clean and the location was great. Very close to town. Cindy was awesome! She came over and introduced herself and was very friendly. We had total privacy while we were there but knew that she was only a text away if we needed anything. We would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful location, starry starry nights, great vibe, perfect hostess, just a little cramped.

  • 4 of 5

Cindy, the owner, is a wonderful human being, and was "beyond the call" accommodating to us. We were rushed and it was a last minute work trip, so we totally lucked out, finding this nice place. I would have loved to have more down time to just enjoy it! The stars from this lanai are so amazing you can almost reach up and touch the Milky Way. The location is just about perfect, close to the beach and up in the cooler zone, within walking distance to Waimea town. There is also a great 3-bedroom more spacious house for rent, so don't forget to check that out if this one is unavailable. The studio was a little cramped for us, because we had a lot of gear but it worked fine. the lay out was a little challenging for us, but the location and hostess more than made up for that. Fantastic mountain views! Short drive to the beach. Filled with art and aloha!

Cozy studio. Everything worked fine. Directions were very good. Communication with host was easy. Close to road. Bathroom a bit tight (I'm 5'10" and 160 lbs.). Convenient to North Kona and Kohala beaches and also North Kohala attractions in and around Hawi.

Lovely, peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Oh, when have you been able to open the windows and hear and feel the soft, cool breezes in a rental? This place is just lovely, from the private views of patio with flowers, to the birdsong, to the peaceful location, to the light-filled rooms, to the convenience of modern kitchen and bathroom, to the comfort of the big bed. I recommend this highly to anyone wanting a quiet, quiet private peaceful place to stay on the north part of the Big Island. Even the refrigerator is quiet, the towels soft and thick, the desk/table comfortable. The host is wonderful. With a full kitchen and plenty of closet space, this unit is perfect for one night or two weeks. I give it my highest recommendation. Happy to answer any questions about my review.
