    This is a Hosted Property.
    Recently constructed and fully remodeled 700 square foot self-contained living space in a private, separate wing of the house. The bedroom and living areas are filled with light, looking out to gorgeous views of the three mountains - Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai. Enjoy the fully equipped kitchen, dining area, cozy reading nook in the living room, spacious bedroom with walk-in closet, brand new bathroom with walk-in shower, wireless internet and Smart TV (movies, tv shows and music channels). We recently installed A/C for those warmer summer months.

    The teak bench in front of the cottage is a perfect place to sit and watch the clouds play over Mauna Kea. Out the back door off the kitchen, there is a new gas barbecue and table and chairs for dining or enjoying sunsets or the bright starry nights. There is also a storage chest full of beach chairs, boogie boards and snorkel gear for your use.

    Our 3-acre property has a large house, recently remodeled to include the guest cottage at one end of the house. I live in a separate wing on the other end of the L-shaped home. The two living spaces are separated by a covered lanai with fencing and landscaping providing privacy for each dwelling.

    I respect my guestsʻ privacy and enjoy my own. I am also happy to answer questions you may have to help you enjoy your stay on the island. I will be happy to steer you to my favorite restaurants, beaches, walking trails and island adventures.

    We enjoy gardening and have planted fruit trees and many flowers that attract abundant bird life. I'm happy to share fruit that is ripe during your stay, including banana, lilikoʻi, mango, papaya, avocado, lemon and lime.

    Situated on the 'dry side' of Waimea, we are half way between Kawaihae and Waimea town, ten minutes drive from both. The best beaches on the island are 10-15 minutes away.

    Located at 1800 foot elevation, our days are most often sunny and warm with occasional island breezes. There are ceiling fans and air conditioning for additional cooling if needed. Temperatures cool down in the evening - perfect for a good nights sleep. Cardinals, doves, finches and other birds fill our quiet 3-acre property with song....

    We enjoyed this cottage a lot. Being away from cities but close to all we want is perfect. Very clean and had everything we needed to be comfortable. Catrinka is a wonderful host.

    Catrinka has a wonderful studio, located half way between the coast and Waimea. She is a gracious and kind host. Communication was fantastic, she gave us fresh fruit from her property to enjoy. The bed is comfy, plenty of storage etc. appreciated the filtered water pitcher. The views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa are beautiful, plenty of birds to watch and bright stars at night. Not having to worry about ac was a bonus staying at 1800 feet elevation. Would definitely return. The only small issue was the WiFi was a little weak, not a big deal unless you are trying to work remotely, which we were not.

    We enjoyed 5 nights at this lovely home. It was immaculate. The view was wonderful and it was very quiet. The location allows you to visit all things on the North end is the island quite easily.

    This is better than 5 star! The location is ideal for exploring the northern part of the island of Hawaii. The property is in an ideal location, about a 10 minute drive to Waimea and a 10 minute drive to a great beach. Waimea has all the services you will need. It also has many fine places to eat. This property is located at an elevation which provides warm days and cools nights. The view from the property is great. Sitting in the living area you can see three mountains in all their glory. The property is clean, comfortable and well maintained. But what really makes this property a 5 star plus is the host. Catrinka is warm and gracious. When you arrive, and throughout your stay, you feel as a welcome guest. She knows how to ensure your experience in her rental unit is purely pleasant.
