About the property

Queen bed sleeps 2, full bath w/tub, kitchenette, convenient private location

This studio cottage sits on 5 acres of orchard, gulch and gardens with the Kohala coast as a backdrop. The owners farm the back 20 acres with cattle, sheep, goats and chickens. We are located midway between the towns of Hawi and Kapa'au--both known for their quaint shops and restaurants. Although only a 5-minute drive to town, the cottage is set back from the road and is completely surrounded by tall bamboo and ironwood trees ensuring a tranquil and private environment. Guests may wander the grounds to pick seasonal fruits, herbs and veggies, visit with the animals or kick back in a comfy hammock to enjoy the tradewinds. Complimentary Direct TV and internet are available for your convenience. There is a kitchenette complete with microwave, 2 burner hot plate, coffee maker, toaster oven, blender and refrigerator. It is fully supplied with dishes and cookware should you choose to prepare your own meals. There is a dining table with views of the front lawn and orchard and a country grocery store just across the street. The comfortable queen sized bed sleeps two and the bath has both tub and shower. Scenic Pololu Valley and lookout is a 20 minute drive to the north and Hapuna Beach State Park and Kohala resorts are a 25 minute drive to the south. Other activities in the area include zip line, Kohala ditch tour and horse back riding. The eclectic and entertaining Hawi farmers market is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Quiet spot with easy drive to beaches

  • 4 of 5

We spent two nights at this quiet apartment that had everything we needed. The location was great for visiting Pololu Beach, Lapakahi State Historical Park, and Mauna Kea or Hapuna Beach. Traffic on Rt 270 to and from the popular beaches was light, and we were lucky to spot Maui sticking up above the clouds. Very cool! An added plus for Gulch Farms was the public library across the street that had books for sale for $1.00, perfect for beach reading. Peggy was very attentive to our needs, even stocking the refrigerator with a jar of honey lemonade. We would definitely stay here again.

Quiet time in Kohala

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I bounced around the Big Island for a couple weeks and this was our last place before we left. Loved it. Nice studio apartment with everything you need. Very private yard with a grill we used with our cocktails at night. This also was our favorite area. The town of Hawi had good restaurants, great coffee, great ice cream, wish we would have stayed longer and checked out more of this wonderful and friendly area. It also was close to some great beaches just a half hour through a scenic road with no traffic. Our host, Peggy, was so helpful and friendly. She also provided us with some produce from the farm. If we ever come back to the Big Island we would definetly stay here again.

Had a wonderful two weeks at Cozy Corner VRBO

  • 5 of 5

It’s one week since we left Kapua Gulch Farms and we are still smiling and reminiscing about the great time we spent there. We’ve been to Hawaii and the Big Island many times but this was our first stay in a smaller community and on a farm. We loved it!! The cottage, the farm, and Peggy, the proprietor and hostess. The farm is delightful and Peggy generously shared time, fruits, and knowledge making our stay very meaningful, fun and personalized. The cottage is peaceful and quiet and just right for 2 people who enjoy each other’s company. The beautiful farm and yard promoted rest and relaxation with room for walking and exploring. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed Peggy, her international and local visitors, her dog Jackie and all the other farm animals, fresh fruits, honey, flowers and true Aloha spirit. Mahalo Peggy for memorable vacation.

Stunning and special

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing experience. Peggy is incredibly kind and knowledgeable about the local area. She gave us so many recommendations we didn’t have time to go to all of them! Fresh fruit and honey from the farm - delicious. Plus, Peggy gave us a tour of the farm after learning we were animal lovers- she let us feed the lambs, goats, and cows! A gorgeous gulch on the property made me run laps of happiness it was so beautiful. Add to all this the beauty of Hawi and the kindness of the locals? We’ll be coming back. Can’t recommend enough!

I feel so lucky to have had this experience at Peggy’s beautiful farm. The cottage was spotless and darling, I loved everything about it. The grounds are sooo beautiful. Peggy is the perfect hostess, and I loved all the animals. I wanted to never leave ever! If I ever get the chance to come back, I will be staying there again absolutely! Best experience ever!

Tranquil, beautiful, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Peggy, the owner of this lovely land and cottage is one of the most friendly, gracious and generous people you'll ever find. From providing fresh-squeezed orange juice from the trees on the property, to guiding us to the best restaurants in the area, she helped make our stay a deeply relaxing and enjoyable one. This cottage is a perfect get-away for two people. We recommend it highly.
