IDENTIFICATION: registration form required for ID *before* I will accept a booking.

LOCATION AREA
Peaceful, convenient and *minutes* to BEST swimming beaches (Kohala Coast) and convenient to popular destinations. This area is a hub of coastal recreation, hiking, history, culture and natural wonders. We're inside a small subdivision (not on Kawaihae Road). Waimea village is a few miles away (10 minutes drive). The VRBO 'Kamuela-Waimea' headline covers Waimea Village -and also- an expansive area miles around it. SOUTH KOHALA district is vast and dotted with miles of villages, small residential areas, resorts & beaches; we all share the postal code for 'Kamuela'.

LOCATION & CLIMATE
We are few miles away from Waimea village "down the hill" on the beach side commonly called the “dry side" in Kamuela. Why should you know this? Climate here is warmer, sunnier, arid than in Waimea village.

Expect a climate / weather pattern variance around island. Our cottage location is ideally warmer, dryer (very low rain level) and sunnier, all year (we are away from Waimea village's colder, wet weather).

YOU'LL LOVE THIS AREA
We have it all. Our spot is ideally situated to enjoy coastline, swim, dive, snorkel, boating, resort amenities, pristine nature areas for walks, sacred sites, stunning views, and lovely near by villages, such as Waimea Village a few miles away is A CHARM of the island and great for shopping, farmers’ markets, rich local history, restaurants, boutiques, galleries, antiquing, community pool, good hospital, playgrounds, astronomy, Parker Ranch, Anna Ranch Museum, and much more to delight.

HOW FAR TO EXPLORE?
Our location is perfect for exploring the entire island. With the beaches, you will easily reach other popular destinations: The Saddle Road for the 'Mauna Kea Summit, Honokaa Village to reach Waipio Valley, Hawi Village, Kapa'au Village and Pololu Valley (40 minutes). It's 40 minutes to Kailua Kona, and 60 miles to Hilo, from where it's just 26 miles more to Volcano park!

KOHALA COAST
Blessed with sun, dotted with sand beaches, aqua bays, snorkel, kayak spots, resort amenities and pristine natural areas. Our location is perfect for exploring the entire island. You'll have the benefit of being close to beaches, nature and have access to resorts, if you wish, but you will live away from the commercial, tourist fray without being isolated. There are miles of non-resort bays and coastal nature areas to walk, explore.

Owner info

About the owner: Since 2005, we are registered and tax licensed in State of Hawaii as a transient vacation rental. And, we are proud members of Hawaii Visitors & Convention Board (tourist board). We collect (from visitors) and we pay (to Hawaii) the State's G.E Tax + the hotel tax (transient occupancy tax). We are 100% owner self-managed by a married couple (Hawaii residents). We live on the property in own, separate house (YOUR PRIVACY IS ASSURED). I welcome and check you in. We have a long, rich history of wonderful guest experiences. I respond to "inquiries" by sending a complete and unbinding offer *prior* to both parties agreeing to a reservation (booking). As Hawaii residents, we are available 24/7 to help with questions, advice, and to assist with any problem that could arise. We strive to take care of every detail before you arrive so your accommodation is as advertised. During your stay, no issue should ever go unresolved…no problem should ever fester…your vacation experience in our home is important to us, too! Guests expect a good accommodation -- and we *expect* guests to communicate with us *immediately* if anything isn't as we said it would be. *Give us a chance to help you*.

Why the Owner Chose Waimea, Hawaii County, HI, USA:
We settled in Hawaii because it's a peaceful place where the people are friendly, the sun shines, the ocean is an important part of the lifestyle and culture, we feel good here and life is wonderful on this island. Our district, South Kohala, has the most consistently warm, rainless and sunny days. We love being close to the best beaches the island offers minutes away, the rich local history, sea life, the music, hula, music festivals year round, and sharing it with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This scenic area is convenient to all destinations; we're situated in beautiful, pleasant surroundings amid nice homes and well-kept, flowering gardens. It's a quiet place by day, for relaxing in a comfortably warm and arid climate, and by night for sleeping well and undisturbed in a cool climate without the need for air conditioning. Properties here are from 1/3 to 1/2 acre each. This is not a 'congested' neighborhood. It's spacious, clean, neat {no junked homes}, pretty and friendly. One can start the day with a morning walk in our traffic-free, small neighborhood before heading out for a day of relaxing at the beach or a 'Big Island' adventure. Some guests take a morning walk, go for a dip in the ocean afterwards, just down the road, then return to shower and head out for more to experiences.
