Known as Waimea by locals, Kamuela is one of Hawaii’s most unique locations: a ranching area with rolling hills and pastures.

Our Kamuela vacation rentals are situated among some of the Big Island’s most popular attractions, while still giving a unique experience.

Recent Kamuela vacation rental reviews

Great town house big rooms and huge upstairs bathroom. Pool was great. Beach club a drive away so You do need a car to get around. Had a great time! .

Halii Kai is a very nice complex. The condo was comfortable and had everything we needed. The beach towels, chairs, and accessories were very helpful.

This condo is a great location for the excellent snorkeling at Makaiwa Bay. It's a nice walk through the Manoku fishponds to get to the "beach club." Of course the beach is open to anyone, the "beach club" just allows use of the lounge chairs - no towels or other services offered. There are some shade trees and a cafe. There is a bicycle rack for locking bikes while at beach. The Mauna Lani resort area is designed with ample space between different developments (e.g. The Palms, The Terraces, the hotel, etc). The view from this condo lanai is of undisturbed lava flows with a glimpse of the ocean beyond - and even Maui if the air is clear enough. Very relaxing and beautiful. This condo unit has its own locked garage, so you can safely leave all you snorkel kit, bicycles etc in the garage. The owner has left some snorkel kit, boogie boards, etc. Casual cycling in the area is nice - but as usual for Hawaii, there is not much signage and the condo does not supply an area map. Go to the hotel reception and ask for a useful map of the resort, and then be prepared to cycle on paths that look like they might be for golf carts - and maybe are, never figured it out. Plenty of cycling outside the resort, especially if you don't mind cycling on a bike lane adjacent to a busy highway. The condo itself is nice in overall appearance, with comfortable beds and good linens, but the details are the problem. The carpet is stained and not stretched correctly anymore. The lanai floor and rails haven't been cleaned for some time so are grubby. The kitchen supplies are well used and offer the usual random assortment of odd things that you find in a vacation rental, but never the thing you really want to find (in this case, a sharp knife, a plastic cutting board for onions, rather than the fancy wood one that should only be used for bread. Missed having a salad spinner, see comment below about water.). It did have a nice rice maker, coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster and wine fridge. The main refrigerator was broken during our stay - another fridge was already stuffed in a spot by the dining table, which was inconvenient but acceptable for our short stay. It looked like the main fridge had been broken for some time already - ask about the appliances before booking. The stove is radiant heat, which is not easy to cook on if you are used to induction or gas. The tap water in this area is heavily chlorinated. Recommend you bring a Brita filter, or buy drinking water. Or leave pitcher of water sitting on counter for several hours to let chlorine dissipate. Vacasa properties always supply dish soap, sponge, paper towels, salt&pepper, hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion.

Where is Kamuela, HI?

Located in the northernmost region of the Big Island, the borders of Kamuela extend into the Pu'u O Umi Natural Area Reserve and the Kohala Forest Reserve. This lush area offers respite from the buzz of the day-to-day in the rest of the area. Waipi’o Valley in particular is one of the most scenic areas of the island, with an abundance of hiking trails leading to gorgeous vistas and black sand beaches. Kamuela is also home to Parker Ranch, the largest privately owned cattle ranch in the United States. This area has a deep-rooted history in ranching. In fact, the annual Fourth of July rodeo has become one of the most popular events in town. 

Things to do in Kamuela, HI

Our Kamuela condo rentals are perfectly situated for accessing all that the Big Island has to offer. A 15-minute drive takes you to some of the island’s best beaches at Mauna Kea Resort. The area is open to the public and attracts guests for its powdery sand, calm waters, and two small coral reefs. This beach is very popular—and for good reason—but if you find the parking lot full, make the one-mile drive south to Hapuna Beach State Park. This area is lesser known but still perfect for an afternoon spent exploring and sunbathing in the white sands.

While Hawaii is famous for being a destination to unwind and relax, there’s no shortage of activities to keep you busy. Drive an hour north and you’ll arrive at Kohala Zipline, where you can hike, rappel, and zip through a sustainably built course. Hear the wind rushing in your ears as you soar past vistas of the Kohala Coast, reaching speeds up to 45 miles per hour.

If you’re looking for something a bit less intense, the annual Cherry Blossom Heritage Festival spans several months in the early springtime. The festival celebrates the Japanese tradition of hanami, or the welcoming of spring. At Kamuela, you’ll have the pleasure of seeing more than 60 cherry blossom trees burst into color.

After you’re done exploring the Big Island and strolling around town, our Kamuela vacation rentals are the perfect place to relax in the region’s iconic rolling hills and valleys. Book today and start your journey to this unique Hawaiian paradise.
