BIG ISLAND RETREAT ON 10 ACRES W/OCEAN VIEW

Hawi House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

'Our Big Island vacation was perfect! We want to thank you for your attention to detail prior to our arrival. Upon arrival, the property exceeded our high expectations. The home was perfect! Everything was very clean, the kitchen was well-equipped for cooking, and the bedrooms comfortably accommodated two couples. The location in North Kohala, with views of rolling pastures and sunsets over the ocean, was a perfect jumping off point for exploring the Big Island. It was also a short drive to our favorite beach. We look forward to our return and will recommend this vacation rental to everyone we know!'

'We had a wonderful stay at your house. Now we go back to your website to relive our vacation! It was perfect!'

'We had a great stay at your house--what a beautiful and well appointed home.'

'Your home is perfect. It connects with the outdoors so well. The sun setting in the front yard and the green of the hills and trees, everything.'

Hale Pueo Kea (House of the White Owl) is located just outside of Hawi, in the Big Island’s beautiful North Kohala District. Away from the crowds, but convenient to so many activities, it also offers refuge from the heat and humidity found at sea level.

The house is on 10 quiet wooded acres, with an orchard offering bananas, limes, oranges, grapefruit, papayas, and macadamia nuts. There are two bedrooms, one bath, a fully equipped kitchen, living room with fireplace, dining room, laundry, and a large lanai. Nearby towns of Kapa’au and Hawi have fine restaurants, art galleries, and shopping. The larger town of Waimea is 19 miles up the mountain, and is the home of the famous Parker Ranch.

The best beaches on the island are a 30 minute drive from the house. As you drive the undeveloped, rocky shoreline, watch for whales from November through April. The Big Island has fabulous hiking, horseback riding, archeological sites, and of course, Volcanoes National Park. The only problem is finding the time to fit it all in.

'We enjoyed relaxing, walking, the view, seeing Maui in the distance, the horses up close, the avocados, grapefruit, balmy breezes..'

'Thanks for sharing your delightful home with us in Hawaii. We truly relaxed..'

My Husband and I own and operate a Ranch a short distance from Hale Pueo Kea. We chose Kohala, where cows and horses are in heaven before they die. We raise animals on only grass and rain for a exclusive buyers club and we work to steward our land to serve our community.

Jileen Russell purchased this house in 2011

We purchased this home in 2011. We have always admired the smart design and sustaining features and the native plants in the garden. We are excited to share it with visitors and add our special highlights to your visit. We can offer recommendations for massage, yoga, Feldenkrais, Chinese medicine and local CSA farms that can provide you with fresh produce during your stay.

Morning coffee on the lanai with the birds.

Fresh fruit from the orchard including apple bananas, so delicious. Sandy beaches are 30 minutes away, yet there are amazing swim and snorkel spots much closer. Our evenings are cooler and we have fewer bugs as a result. The Kohala Mountain Road is one of the most beautiful scenic drives in this world. The Farmers Markets are delightful. Our small town is safe and welcoming and tourists have been known to go home to sell their homes and then move here.

RELAXING IN NORTH KOHALA

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. It was exactly what we expected as posted on the VRBO website. It was nice to focus on activities on the north half of the island and we found plenty to do.

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you were adventurous enough to stay up here and feel the peace and expansive nature of the big sky of these Kohala Mountains. Please return.

HALE PUEO KEA! -- WONDERFUL PLACE TO RECHARGE YOUR BATTERIES!

  • 5 of 5
Truly wonderful, peaceful place to recharge your batteries and come back to your senses! All you need is one day to sit on the patio overlooking the ocean and you will be back to normal! Very clean, well stocked and modern kitchen (all you need are some groceries; utensils, cooking supplies, spices, etc.), plenty of thick bath towels, blankets and bedding. Washer/dryer. All there! So quiet at night all you can hear is nothing! Trees loaded with avocados, oranges and bananas. The owner is a truly gracious and wonderful person! All you need bring is a change of clothing (even have new toothbrushes) and food. Everything within reasonable driving distance! I cannot wait to stay again!

GREAT STAY AWAY FROM THE FRAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at the well-appointed Hale Pueo Kea. Sunsets, stars and grilling every night meant that we could really relax and adjust to "island time"! We loved that the kitchen/family room area was separate from the bedrooms as it allowed us the freedom to start our day whenever we wanted without bothering anyone.

Whether you're exploring the island or content with staying put, this is a great home to spend your vacation in. The Kohala hills location also meant that the weather never got too hot and never got too cold. This location is definitely worth the extra driving time.

Thank you for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: You had a great week of weather for your stay, we normally get more rain in this month in the evenings. I love our location and the benefits
being up in the mountains and away from the lights gives you a chance to see the density of the stars and less humidity for a good night's sleep.
If you come back next year I will treat you to some extra special steaks
from the Ranch.

AMAZING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We were greeted by Jileen, the owner, and brought fruit and other gifts to welcome us. She is super wonderful and generous. The place, for being a smaller place than most, felt large and very open. We always felt very comfortable. The views were amazing, and the star watching could not be beat. My wife and I enjoyed the design so much we may building something similar on our ranch property. The only downside was the internet was slow and the tv was limited; however, it turned out that was the best thing ever. In the evenings, we would cook our dinner on the grill, watch the sunset and when it got dark we watched nature's tv. It did not disappoint! Its so dark there you can see the stars so clearly. You feel a million miles away but you are only a short drive from Hawi or a longer, very scenic drive to Waimea. The place was clean and Jileen is so nice, I could not imagine not staying there again and totally disconnecting with the world, its amazing and I highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: I do debate with myself about a bigger, better TV and sound system and the internet is on "Hawaiian time" but I think I should invest in a good telescope and star and planet maps and a bigger library of books and DVDs based on your review. The rest of the world is asking us to be wired up, is that we need for ourselves ? I am so happy you enjoyed your home here in Kohala and I hope to see you next year.

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
What a nice place! My family spent five nights at Hale Pueo Kea and we loved it. Jileen has thought of everything. If you need it, it is probably there. The setting is very pretty and the weather is super. The cool evenings are great and a break from the warmer weather near the beaches on the coast below. Kohala is a lovely part of the Big Island and Hale Pueo Kea is an outstanding place to enjoy it from. Jileen is certainly a thoughtful host and has done a great job with this rental.

KOHALA HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
The only negative thing I can say is that Jileen spoils you for any other vacation rental. The home, grounds and neighborhood are the perfect blend of country and Hawaiian paradise. Suzie and Festus (the mules) reminded us that we were staying in paniolo country with serious cattle ranches in the vicinity. But just a short drive gets you to the coast for perfect whale watching. The house itself is divided into two separate "pods", one for cooking, eating and socializing; the other for sleeping and bathing. The shower's glass block wall gives ultimate privacy but the feeling that you're taking an outside shower. The views from every single room in this house are incredible. Fresh fruit is growing on the property and Jileen left us lovely food goodies to tide us over. I can't say enough about the home, provisions, location and ho'okipa (hospitality), it was all so lovely and peaceful. Mahalo nui loa- The Matsumotos
