Located in the secluded village of Niulii one can wake up to the sounds of country life, and experience authentic Hawaiian Hospitality The experience is of 'one that belongs' equal to all who inhabit the village. The homes are simple and reasonably priced for the budget traveler to relax and enjoy.
We loved staying at Nani's Hawai'ian style Kohala Guest House. So glad a friend suggested it. Very reasonable with a full kitchen, 2 baths and a choice of renting 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms. A short drive to Pololu Valley, and you can walk or drive down to Keokea Beach Park (where a baby monk seal and mother were in residence). Wonderful to wake up to birds cooing, and have coffee on the lanai overlooking the lawn, flowers and fruit trees. A few minutes drive to Kapa'au/Hawi for groceries or dinner at a choice of restaurants. Nani also made beautiful leis for us to take to a special event we were attending in the area.
> Mahalo nui and look forward to returning for a future visit.

Kohala's Guest House is within walking distance to Keokea Beach Park. The park has a fresh water stream flowing into the ocean almost all year round. Keokea Beach Park is a surfing spot used by the islanders and is great for a picnic or whale watching during the winter months.
Niulii Village is a hikers paradise as Pololu Valley is less than two miles away. Guests usually pack a lunch and spend a day hiking down into the valley and bask in the sweet breath of Kohala's kamakani (wind).
