About Chris Wej

We fell in love with this magical property on top of the hill and decided to build a unique dream house for our retirement. We are too young to retire so decided to share it with you and your family as a vacation rental.

Chris Wej purchased this lodge in 1997

Why Chris Wej chose Hawi

North Kohala is known as God's country. It is the richest part of the island in terms of natural beauty.

What makes this lodge unique

There are spectacular coastal views and You can see the chain of Hawaiian Island from the Lodge. There are moon bows on certain nights. Star gazing is perfect from this property.

Pastoral....... serene

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I - both 62 - spent our last 4 nights on the Big Island at Kohala Lodge. While we did do a bit of driving we didn't really mind. The scenery was spectacular. And we still managed to fit in 2 mornings of open range and Waipio Valley horseback riding, a shore dive off the reef at Mauna Lani, snorkling, and hiking down into, across, and back out of Kilauea Iki crater. Oh. And we drove to the top of Mauna Kea one evening for the stars and 60 mile an hour winds. Our only regret is that our sons kept us so busy we were unable to spend as much time as we would have liked at the lodge. It is lovely and low-key. The sheep and Tigh (Ti?) the horse ( and neighboring horses too) are delightful. Oh. And we did find some time to watch the whales surfacing and blowing in the channel between the Big Island and Maui while sitting on the front porch. Chris was friendly and available when we had questions. And before we left we went by his wife's shop in Kapa'au, where I picked up a couple of lovely silk scarves. Kohala Lodge is altogether one of the best places we've stayed during our 4 trips to the islands. Should we return we would hope to stay there again. One suggestion.... maybe a newer, larger screen tv for those nights when you do want to crash in front of a movie.

Great base for exploring north coast of Big Island

  • 5 of 5
We had been to the Big Island once before, about five years ago, where we stayed in Kona. This time we wanted a quieter accommodation and to spend more time exploring the north end of the island. Kohala Lodge was a great base and excellent value.

We found the lodge to be even more attractive than the pictures on this site convey. The owners have clearly spent a lot of time making the cabin comfortable, well equipped and welcoming. Both inside and outside of the lodge were clean and well maintained.

Certainly the weather here is cooler and more changeable than the Kona coast but that is one of its attractions. Our kids really enjoyed watching and feeding the sheep and horses on the property and there was a wide variety of bird life to be seen.

Hapuna Beach is about 30 mins away but there are other beaches and many excellent snorkelling spots that are closer. We saw lots of whales each time we drove along the coast and there are plenty of historic sites, hiking trails and viewpoints to satisfy a range of interests.

We would recommend this property to anyone interested in a more authentic Big Island experience.

Has its faults, but overall a good experience

  • 4 of 5
Our family of four spent nine days at this historic style home. It was nice to get away from it all and the views from this home are absolutely unbeatable. The owners, Chris and Carol, are wonderfully friendly people.
Among the positives of this home was the spectacular view. Even on a cloudy day, from the front porch you have an amazing view. On clear, sunny days, the island of Maui is clearly visible, and you can even make-out some of the details of the terrain. There are snorkel spots nearby in the calm season, as well as the historic artists' town of Hawi. There are also good places to hike, and the lovely Pololu valley is a short drive away. The owners are easily contacted if needed.
Some things to consider before you book this property include its location. While this is without a doubt the prettiest view you will experience on the island, it is a good distance from the resort town of Kailua-Kona, which is where most of the activities and white sand beaches are. The drive into Kailua took an hour with light traffic, and even with constant views of the beautiful coastline, this became a chore for us. Another thing to note is the amount of rainfall the North Kohala district receives. As beautiful as it is on a clear, sunny day, you can expect some rainfall during your stay here.
As for the home itself, it has a cozy feel and really adds to the "away from it all" feeling. You can expect to lose cell-service once you pass through the town of Hawi. Wifi is provided, but the signal is weak and can usually only be reached in the kitchen. It's also important to note that the loft is all one room, and although it's listed, there is no room divider or separating wall up there. It's really more of a "one bedroom plus loft" home. I would not call it a three-bedroom. The master bedroom is nice, but the master bathroom has no door, and no shower.
Although all the windows can be opened for a refreshing breeze, there is no heat in the home, and damp clothing will not air dry due to the moisture of the climate. There is a washer and dryer, but the machines are outside, and no hot water is available for washing linens. Also, there is no dishwasher, so cleanup after a family meal takes a lot of time. Nearly every morning we saw ants in the kitchen, loft and second bathroom; but nothing we weren't able to handle.
Overall our stay was a good experience. It was nice to enjoy the view and a new perspective.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
The owners are great people. They went above and beyond anything expected when I lost my car key for a couple of hours. The lodge was beautiful, clean, and has some stunning views. Hapuna Beach is not to far away and is fantastic. The town of Hawi is laid back, peaceful, but with great coffee, ice cream and restaurants. Waimea is also pretty close and must be toured. Natural beauty surround the Lodge and you will have a lot of exploring to do or maybe just relax with a Mai-Tai and recover from your too busy life!! And I believe it to be inexpensive for what you get.

Forget The Resorts! This is the REAL Hawaii!

  • 5 of 5
After spending 7 days at a Waikoloa Beach Resort we (2 couples in our 60's) spent the last 3 days of our vacation at Hawi's Cabin in the Treeline. We quickly realized that we should have stayed here our entire 10 day vacation. Hawi is a quaint, historic little community on the North end of Hawaii. Our host, Chris, was most hospitable, friendly and a wealth of local information. The cabin is so unique, private, quiet and cozy, but not lacking in modern conveniences at all. This is how we imagine all of Hawaii used to be! We spent most of our time sitting on the front porch chairs looking out over the ocean, grazing horses and sheep in the foreground. Glimpses of Maui thru the haze as it is only 30 or so miles from Hawi. A fully equipped kitchen (not like the skimpy utensils at the resort), plenty of pots and pans, dishes and glassware. You'll love cooking here. No more resorts for us. Lots to see and do locally. Farmer's Market; local art galleries and gift shops.

The other couple is from Alaska and I am sure they will recommend this Cabin to their Alaskan friends. We visit the Big Island a couple times a year and we will be back to Cabin in the Treeline and get our "Hawaii fix".
