About Anette Owner - Hale Kea Cottage

Since 2006, 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 Anette Owner - Hale Kea Cottage chose Kamuela

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. 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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely, peaceful, beautiful place to relax. The plants & flowers make us feel like we are in paradise as we eat on the lanai. Not only is the place and setting made so wonderful with all the care and attention to so many details – ultimate comfort – but it also just has such a good feel to it – an inviting peaceful energy. We look forward to returning! It was just perfect.

Thank you! Lisa & Doug, Oregon/USA.

The Big Island's perfect vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a wonderful home to explore the Big Island. So comfortable and with a great location - tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood - Annette has thought of ALL the details that one could wish for! Every room is very clean, well-appointed and kept and tastefully decorated. Even the kitchen is stocked with every spice and better-equipped than my own. My husband and I were super impressed with Hale Kea Cottage and thank you Annette and Pally for all the info and sharing your Paradise with us!

Comfortable stay at Hale Kea Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was the forth time we came to Big Island. Of the different cottages we rented, Hale Kea was the most comfortable and best equipped one. Strictly nothing was missing. We particularly appreciated the beautiful front deck where perfect privacy is offered by the surrounding tropical vegetation. Taking meals here was just great.

Wonderful Hale Kea Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We come to Hawaii every year. And we always stay at beautiful Hale Kea Cottage. We could write a zillion wonderful things about this cottage. Unfortunately there is not enough space here. So we’ll put our praise in just one sentence: We have made Hale Kea our “second home”. We think that there is no nicer thing you could say about a vacation rental. Usually we come to Hawaii during the winter to escape the harsh German weather. This time we arrived in July and stayed until mid-August. We were surprised about Hawaii’s sweetness in the summer: the sky always blue, almost no wind, low waves good for calm swimming. The Big Island is always in the “on-season”.

Owner's Response: For the guest, a sense of feeling at home is the point of choosing a private accommodation. And, for the host, it's the ultimate goal to achieving a successful rental experience for those whom we love to welcome. I appreciate your taking a moment to express kind words about your stay, again, at Hale Kea Cottage. Hawaii is a sweet spot at any time of year, we think. We're happy you think so too. We always look forward to welcoming you back. Mahalo & Aloha.

Romantic honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

The best vacation ever. The cottage was perfect and the owner made finding the best beaches, shopping and restaurants easy. Very organized and well stocked, everything that you could possibly need was to enjoy a quiet, romantic holiday. We want to go back again. Stress free and the most relaxed way to experience the Big Island.

Absolute comfort

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about Aloha Vacation Cottages, Hale Kea, and Annette & Pally. Hale Kea was even more attractive than the online description, so homey and comfortable we just didn't want to leave. Annette was such a marvelous host, providing lots of valuable insight and warm aloha, but very respectful of a guest's privacy. The location was so convenient and central to the sights and amenities of the north and west island, and just a short drive from Kona or Hilo. A perfect vacation getaway - we don't hesitate to give it our highest recommendation.

Owner's Response: And we absolutely enjoyed meeting you. We love preparing our little, humble cottage with comfort, first and foremost, in mind. We love hosting. As travelers ourselves, we know how nice it is to feel taken care of as guests. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to welcome you.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks at Hale Kea in September, 2015. This vacation rental is at about 2500 ft. so it's nice and cool at night and in the morning. We appreciated being away from the chaos of the tourist areas and having the privacy of our home away from home. Being a ranch style with very few steps, this rental was especially nice for someone with bad knees.

We really appreciate the graciousness of our hosts. We were welcomed by one of our hosts even though we arrived late at night. Our hosts have provided so many amenities that you can feel free to leave many things at home that you thought you might need. They provide all that you will need for a day outing and going to the beach, as well as, all you need for a pleasant day just relaxing at the rental. We've stayed at a lot of vacation rentals and continue to come back here because it's the best one we've ever stayed at.

Owner's Response: And, it's always delightful to welcome you two back, again! Thank you for kindness and consideration, always. Folks reading: For the record, this vacation rental is at 2100 feet (above sea level) which is between the villages of Kawaihae and Waimea. It is considered by many to be the best elevation which offers "arid" day temperatures in the middle 80sF and night temperatures in the 70s. Low humidity, too, makes this a comfortable environment. Neither airconditioning in summer nor heating in winter is needed. In any event, the cottage is equipped with ceiling fans (plus an extra window fan - if ever needed) ...very private so you can open all the windows for clean, fresh air and light...and there are plenty of clean, soft blankets if one likes. We provide much more than just the basic essentials for a truly comfortable, convenient lodging experience. Visit our website (linked in this ad) and see the page for "Amenities". We love it when our home feels like a home to our guests and especially enjoy seeing them return year after year.
