About this listing

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.
