The space

**IMPORTANT UPDATE 1-2 night stays are welcome if booked 30 days before date and if available. MAUI - if you are going to Maui please see our ad.
Cottage MAXIMUM capacity is 2 persons (a child at any age is a person).

Located in the ultimate country setting, this comfortably rustic OCEAN VIEW cottage is situated on a private gated property with breathtaking VIEWS of ranch land and a 60 mile unobstructed VIEW of coastline. The cottage is located
above the main house ( see photos)!!!Tranquil and quiet, only those that appreciate magnificent sweeping VIEWS, wide open spaces and starry nights need inquire. Weather allowing.

The cottage is ideally set between Hawi and Kamuela (Waimea) on the drier part of beautifully scenic Kohala Mountain Road (hwy 250). Return to the comfort and coziness of the cottage after a day of exploration. The cool 3500' elevation is refreshing and the expansive OCEAN VIEWS are unforgettable. A great place to reflect over the days journeys; plan tomorrows adventures or simply write, meditate or indulge in a great book.

Perfect for low-impact, less is more type of traveler.

Clean, cozy and prepped for simplicity, efficiency and comfort.

Cottage size: 236 sq feet under roof PLUS 345 sq foot lanai.

Above a remote family home 5 miles upcountry from Waimea; awesome view. Outdoor Hawaiian style living -- this is not a Kohala resort, but an authentic paniolo cabin (with modern amenities like a fridge, satellite TV and internet). Private and perfect for a romantic couple or decompression from a family gathering. We could have been happy here for weeks.

Maile's cottage is located up high in the mountain with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The view and the calm is soothing. The cottage is very complete. It had everything that you might need on a trip. Very easy to communicate with and has great tips on the best places to go. We enjoyed staying with Maile very much!

This was our second time staying at Maile's cottage and the experience was just as expected, amazing! We love the cool breeze and star gazing from the lanai at night. I definitely recommend staying here for a relaxing vacation. Maile is always available to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

MaileGuss has thought of everything one might need for their stay on the island from coolers to borrow for a trip to the beach to anything you might need to cook with! What a fun location to stay that is out of the ordinary.

I stayed for a week while attending a conference in nearby Waimea. The cottage is small but perfect for one or two people, it was easy to access and only a few minute's drive from Waimea town. Maile and others were kind and welcoming. The peace and quiet up there are unparalleled, and I was very amused by the animals making appearances at various times of the day and night. I highly recommend the cottage for those who want something other than the typical vacation rental if staying in the Waimea/Kohala area.

This cottage has a good spirit with great views. It's a bit off the beaten track, but for us it was just perfect to explore the north shore. We also enjoyed the privacy and the quiet nights.
