About this listing
This private and serene cottage on a beautiful 2 acre retreat is just where you want to be at the end of the day. 6 miles from the best beaches on the dry side of Waimea Town.
A beautiful space with everything needed for a relaxing quiet stay.

Luxuious linens adorn the separate bedroom and a beautiful stone shower appoint the bathroom. A separate laundry room with washer and dryer is available for use.
You will find yourself minutes away from the best beaches on the Big Island. The largest of Hawaii Island's white sand beaches, Hapuna Beach, has consistently been rated on numerous international Top Ten lists. Mauna Kea Beach, a perfect crescent of golden sand leading to calm water, has been voted among the Top 10 beaches in the U.S. Both offer great conditions for swimming, sunbathing, bodyboarding and snorkeling.
Beyond the beaches, Hawaii offers a host of outdoor activities and sightseeing oppportunities. Head to the Paniolo Town of Waimea and visit the many shops and galleries. From there is the perfect starting point for a trip to the Volcano National Park or a glimpse of the stars and planets at Mauna Kea Observatory.
There's no better way to experience the amazing cultural diversity of Hawaii Island than to visit one of the farmers' markets that take place all arround the island. You'll find fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables used in Hawaii Regional Cuisine, exotic varieties that are as intriguing as they are tasty plus an eclectic collection of prepared foods.The market is also a great place to pick up handmade artwork or a unique gift and strike up a conversation with the artist who made them.
