The only bad thing I can say is that I was only able to spend two nights in this amazing place. Some other guests were staying six weeks. That's the better way to do it. This was a truly lovely place. My friend and I stayed in the Kohala cottage (two beds) while another friend stayed in the Waimea Cottage.... More

Nice room, well provisioned with beach towels and other conveniences. Breakfast is a limited, do-it-yourself affair – some very good places to eat nearby. Short drive to several great destinations (beach, hiking, ziplining, etc.). Owners are friendly, but you may not see much of them unless you need something.

We stayed for three nights in the Garden Studio and absolutely loved it. It comes with everything you could possibly need, including beach towels and chairs, aromatherapy shampoo, and all kitchen essentials. The owners are gracious and friendly, and the nearby town is good for groceries (try to find the fresh malasadas food truck!) The best thing is the luxurious... More

My wife and I brought our two daughters (7 and 9), this is our 4th time staying here. We've stayed at other spots on the island, but this is our very favorite. Waimea Garden Cottage is so close to the beach (about 8 miles), and in such an awesome community. We frequented the farmer's market on the weekends for all... More

We spent 3 nights in the studio at Waimea Gardens. It is very well designed, perfectly clean and had everything we needed. Charlie even supplied an outdoor grill for our use. The shower was very cool. If you go, you'll see why. The location is quiet,private and secluded but just a short drive to great beaches and snorkeling. We also... More

We stayed at the Waimea Cottage at Waimea Gardens for 4 nights. It is spacious. And it is decorated so than it feels like a home. We played the Hawaiian CDs all of the time. The private patio was neat. Barbara and Charlie were away on vacation; but their housekeeper, Heather, was a good host. The breakfast supplies in the... More

Barbara and Charlie are excellent hosts. We stayed for 8 nights and wish it could have been much longer. The Waimea area is awesome, definitely country, quiet and comfortable. Very clean and well taken care of.

We stayed at Kohala cottage (warm and cosy atmosphere) for three nights. It has most of the usual amenities (but no dishwasher, washing machine or dryer). It is well located, but we found it a bit noisy because it's quite close to a road : moreover, the gardeners were working on our terrace while we were having breakfast inside the... More

We did not want to leave when our stay was over! This is one classy cottage. The cottage is just the right size and perfectly decorated. Loved the breakfast provisions in the refrigerator so we could choose what we wanted and when in the morning. Barbara and Charlie are superb hosts.

Waimea Garden Cottages is an ideal location for a quite getaway in North Kohala. We had a great time hiking the Pu'u Umi Forest Reserve and it was just great to have the great Pu'u(s) of North Kohala in your own private backyard! The Waimea Cottage was perfect for us - with its red brick patio and inviting front porch.... More
