We stayed on 4 islands in Hawaii in many different hotels and this was my favorite hotel we stayed in. One of my favorite memories of the trip is sitting on the porch of this cottage and listening to all the beautiful exotic birds calling. A beautiful plumeria tree was directly above our porch. The beach was a short walk away. There is a restaurant on site also. The hotel is close to the small "downtown" area of Waimea which had our favorite restaurant Porky's and Jojo's Shave Ice which was amazing. We also stopped for macadamia nut ice cream near Porky's and a passion fruit store called Aunty Lilikoi's which had passion fruit syrup, honey, bbq sauce etc. The little cottage we stayed in was so cozy. It is a beautiful property to walk around on and look at the many different types of trees. We sat in the chairs by the ocean and watched sunset. Great place! Highly recommend! Read less

Waimea Canyon very close. Beach down the road. Waimea is a charming town with a good steakhouse. Staff was nice. Only complaint no stopper for tub but we didn’t ask so no ding there. Staff very friendly and helpful. Excursions are available to schedule at the office but we didn’t use so u sure on price but looks like they had all the usual stuff such as ATV adventures, helicopter, rafting, catamarans, etc. Worth a few days stay!!!

This was so cozy and quiet, I wanted to live here! The cottages really have everything, from parking right outside, to outdoor seating and lounge chairs. Just buy some groceries and make yourself at home. Or walk to the nearby restaurant.

Incredible location. Cottages are spectacular. If you are coming to the Island you need to stay at these cottages for at least a few of your days. Sunsets on the beach are unbelievable. I would not suggest the restaurant for your meals, but the good news is there are lots of great places to eat just a short walk down the road.
