This is located in a safe and friendly, dry side, residential neighborhood approximately 2 miles on the west side of Waimea (aka Kamuela) and about 10 - 15 minutes to the shoreline. It is at a cooler elevation so it is good to bring a little jacket & socks for after the sun goes down.
There is a small shuttle that goes back and forth to town periodically which can be found less than 1 block from the house.
