Make Kamuela your next getaway

Known as Waimea by locals, Kamuela is one of Hawaii’s most unique locations: a ranching area with rolling hills and pastures. While the white sand beaches and crystal waters are an idyllic setting in their own right, locals see these lush and verdant hills as their own prime getaway location. Our Kamuela vacation rentals are situated among some of the Big Island’s most popular attractions, while still giving a unique experience.

Our family of 4 with two teenagers loved this condo and Halii Kai in general.Best collection of amenities on the island. Pool, hot tub, beach bar/restaurant inside the resort, great shoreline walking trails, basketball and tennis courts, putting green. This condo could could use a grill but other than that, we had everything we needed. Was our favorite of the 3 places we stayed during our 12 day trip to the Big Island.

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.
