Overview

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 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 Kamuela

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. :)

Great Place!

You can't go wrong with this rental property. It was very clean, had everything we could need and was in a good area with lots of restaurants and shopping. We especially enjoyed the Waimee Cherry Blossom Festival.

Beautiful cottage, very well appointed and a welcoming experience.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful cottage. As Home Away owners, we appreciated the welcome basket, linens, beach chairs, etc. The cottage is nicely furnished, very clean and quiet. Away from the heat of the beach but easy access and only minutes to Waimea's restaurants and stores. We wholeheartedly recommend.

Definitely Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Kamuela Cozy Cottage is the perfect getaway for both tourists and locals! We are from the Hilo side of the island and needed a place to stay for a couple of nights due to a work function. This place was absolutely perfect for what we needed! Very comfy and relaxing, beautiful views, super clean, and close to dinning and shopping! Definitely planning on booking again!

A quiet stay in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The Kamuela Cosy Cottage is a modern, fully furnished house nestled in a quiet neighborhood on the mountain slope above Wiamea. At about 3000 ft above sea level, the days are pleasant and the evenings are cool. Some afternoons it rained a little. The kitchen has everything you’ll need to prepare your meals and the grill is just outside on the porch if your tastes are for steaks or chicken. TVs are in every room except the bath. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of comforters for those cool evenings.

When I say quiet, this neighborhood really is. Wiamea has none of the tourist hustle and bustle of Kona or Hilo. And that’s the real charm of this location. Wild turkeys wander around the yard and roost in the trees just off the porch! The air is refreshingly clean. The view of Mauna Kea across the valley is an impressive sight. If you’re looking for a house to have loud parties in, this isn’t for you.

There isn’t much night life in town either which suited us fine. There are some good restaurants within driving distance and some of the best beaches in the islands are just 20 minutes away! We've been vacationing in the Islands for twenty years and I think our stay at Tiffany and Jaiya's cottage was the best experience we've had.

Quite neigbourhood and lovely setting.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and bright with many helpful extras such as beach towels, sun umbrella & a cooler so our family of 5 could pack a lunch & drinks for our days adventures.

Rooms are large & space really well layed out. We were very happy over our stay that was over a week long.
