ENJOY THIS PEACEFUL, TROPICAL RETREAT IN A CUSTOM MULTI-FACETTED HOME

Kapaau House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2BR+/2Bath (Sleeps 4-5)

'Hale Nahele' (Forest House in Hawaiian) aptly describes the PRIVATE setting for this custom multi-facetted redwood and cedar 2BD, 2BA house set among mature tropical trees and plants. The home is perched above a seasonal stream on a 3/4 acre property. You may enjoy a game on a large yard, while grilling on the Barbeque, an evening around the fire pit in the gazebo or perhaps star gazing in serenity on a 'floating bed' outside the master bedroom. Help yourself to any of the edibles you discover freely growing among the mature trees such as avocados, passion fruit (lilikoi), surinam cherries or papayas. Anthuriums, the native 'Nanu' (gardenia) and seasonal orchid flowers scattered about the landscape are sure to please your senses!

Inside, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness of this customized 12-sided home. Antique Amber stained concrete floors were cut to look like large tile. Your eye will be drawn to the vaulted ceiling and peer through the spectacular 6ft circular skylight. The guest room has 2 twin beds, the master has a plush queen bed. The master bath features unique his and her sinks in front of a large picture window and an outdoor bamboo-surround shower! Both rooms have spacious cedar-lined closets.

Amazing forests views encompass the house from every room.

You'll appreciate your privacy while being within 1-2 blocks of the conveniences of Kapaau town such as local coffee shops, cafe's, and restaurants, shopping, ATM, and salon services. There are many other visitor attractions, including the popular statue of King Kamehemeha. The nearby Kamehameha Public Park has a pool, gym, tennis courts, playground, 6-hole golf course and skate park. A few minutes drive to the north will end at the breath-taking Pololu Valley where you may hike down and enjoy wiggling your toes in the black sand, collecting driftwood or simply relax and soak in the Hawaiian sun among the picturesque scenery. Boogie boards, beach chairs, towels and snorkel gear are available for your convenience when you venture out to any of our great nearby beaches.

This vacation home is run by the Eubank family: Kirk, Lani, Aaron and Kandace. We have been Kohala residents for 29 years.

Kandace Eubank purchased this house in 2008

We chose this property for its location and size. We found this right-in-town, yet private jewel of a lot and decided that it called for a unique house! All who have visited there have commented that they would love to use it as a vacation rental...and now it is! E komo mai.

We loved the variety of the trees and plants surrounding the property. The driveway enters the lot between two tall mango trees. Stand outside the front door and across the lawn you can't help by marvel at a banyan tree root that has 'S'd it's way up a palm tree! Though it's off the beaten path, it's still close to everything! Come enjoy this private, quiet, beautiful spot in North Kohala!

BEAUTIFUL UNIQUE HAWAIIAN HOME

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay in this very unique home. My husband and I along with our boys ages 18 & 20 had plenty of space to spread out and relax. We really loved the round hammock and out door shower. Although it was very hot in the house during the day it cooled off in the evenings. It was wonderful to open all the windows at night and hear the breeze through the trees. The house was well furnished and had everything you needed. It was a huge plus to have access to the beach chairs and snorkeling equipment not to mention it was really nice to be able to use the washer and dryer. We really enjoyed how close the home was within walking distance to the town. GREAT pizza just around the corner. Highly recommend the Kohala Ditch Adventure Tour which was really fun. Our tour guide Hula was filled knowledge about the island. Enjoyed the black sand beaches and snorkeling areas. Just a note to keep in mind there were a lot of mosquitoes, geckos and a few cane spiders both outside and inside the house. The owners leave plenty of bug spray for you to use. These critters are all harmless but I would have liked to have known we might see them in the house. Keep in mind you are in Hawaii and are staying in a beautiful home surround by lush tropical foliage. The owner Kandace was very nice and always available with a quick response to my questions. Great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your high praises of Hale Nahele and the surrounding community. You spoke so well of what makes Kohala special. None of us have yet learned how to completely tame the critters that pester us, though we will continue to try! So glad you enjoyed your stay nonetheless!

PERFECT GETAWAY IN BEAUTIFUL KAPA'AU!

Perfect Getaway in Beautiful Kapa'au!
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the absolute best time in this awesome home in North Kohala. Not only is it conveniently located within walking distance of the main street in Kapa'au, but it is also amazingly peaceful and private! The stream behind the house and the beautifully landscaped yard added to the tranquility of the setting. Everything we needed was in the home, including a well-stocked kitchen, where we enjoyed cooking some of our meals. The outdoor shower was super! and it was fun to watch our shower buddies (a/k/a cute geckos) walk along the top of the screen and enjoy a little spray.

Kapa'au is a cute little town and so close to Hawi, as well as lots of great sites and activities. We had an interesting hike at the Bond property just down the road (8 stream crossings!), thoroughly enjoyed the Kohala Ditch Adventure, loved hiking down and exploring Pololu Valley, spent lots of time and a little money in the great shops and galleries in Kapa'au and Hawi, relaxed at Keokea Beach Park, and explored the area including Waimea and down the Kohala Coast with the most wonderful day spent playing and snorkeling in the water at Beach 69. There were many very good restaurants nearby including Sushi Rock, Bamboo, Minnie's, Kings View Cafe (GREAT pizza) -- just to name a few. Every day was a great adventure and it was wonderful knowing we could come home and fully relax in 'our' own home, which was very comfortable. We want one for our own!

Our hosts and property management extraordinaire Lani were great to work with. Everything happened when it was supposed to or earlier, and I didn't have a care in the world (which is contrary to an experience on Kauai last year!). I would fully recommend this beautiful home for your next vacation to North Kohala. You won't want to leave!

LOVELY, WELL-EQUIPPED VACATION HOME IN A QUIET TOWN

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (2 adults + 2 kids under 5) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely unique home. Everything your need to enjoy the beaches (boogie boards, snorkel gear, even sunblock!) is provided and the owners were helpful with setting up a crib and high chair for our youngest. The lot is very quiet (except for some roosters!) and private. We enjoyed the daily drive to awesome beaches about 30 min away- great views of Maui and whales along the way. Towns of Kapaau and Hawi have neat shops, galleries and cafés- much quieter than in Kona. Everything was exactly as pictured and Kandace and Lani were quick to respond to any queries during and prior to the rental. Wi-fi worked great and the tv even had Netflix which was a hit with our son. The swing, hammock and outdoor shower were awesome. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable place to stay and don't mind a bit of a drive (we stocked up on groceries at Costco, also the beaches are nicer north of Kona in my opinion anyway!), this is a great choice.

AMAZING RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing stay at this beautiful location. The setting is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the gorgeous surroundings. Having a fully stocked kitchen is a plus for those who like to do their own cooking. For those who prefer, it is less than a 5 minute walk to the main street which offers a few nice places to eat and shop. The outdoor shower is a unique feature, as is the nice round hammock. We enjoyed the seclusion coupled with easy access to convenient locations that offer recreation, eating, and other local options. The owners are so easy to work with and show a personal interest in their guests. We can't say enough good things about this wonderful setting in Paradise!

LOVED THIS PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in this beautiful home! My favorite part was the outdoor shower. The home was very comfortable and nice decor. Thanks for being so accommodating to our toddler! Very convenient location also! Although it seems pretty standard practice to have to clean the house ourselves as guests, my only complaint would be that you charge guests a cleaning fee but yet make a list of all the things that must be cleaned and done before we leave in order to get our deposit back. I guess I don't understand why we have to clean the house ourselves and also pay a separate cleaning fee as well. It created a bit of stress for us upon leaving, not quite like we imagined for being on a vacation. That being said, your rates were more reasonable than most and I liked the property much more than the other place we stayed in the Puna district this trip. If you ever decide to sell this place, let me know... I want it!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the compliments which highlight what we also feel are those things exclusive to this property and home, such as the convenient location, lush green setting and attractive, comfortable decor. We do appreciate any feedback. We have addressed and adjusted our check out procedures to make sure all our guests have a wonderful and relaxing experience at Hale Nahele O Kohala! Mahalo Nui Loa and A Hui Hou.

SISTERS' REUNION

Sisters' Reunion
  • 4 of 5
Hale Nahele is a quiet retreat, out of sight of the neighbors and surrounded by tall trees. It was a haven for the reunion of three sisters, sans families, wanting to re-charge and re-connect with each other. The home is clean and comfortable with a well-furnished kitchen, making a great base for our daily excursions in North and South Kohala. We used and appreciated the beach chairs nearly every day! While in the neighborhood, we appreciated learning some sugar plantation history from the helpful staff at the Kohala Welcome Center and enjoyed exploring the restaurants and shops of Kapaau and Hawi.

Float down the historic Kohala ditch in a kayak as a relaxing alternative. Hike to a black sand beach only minutes away. Whale watch off nearby Lighthouse point. The property is walking distance from Kapaau's unique shops, galleries, and varieties of cafe's and restaurants with a local flare to their entrees. We're located a block from the famous historical King Kamehameha Statue. Only 5 minutes from Hawi's shops, galleries, and restaurants. Every Saturday in Hawi is the open farmer's market ablaze with fresh, local, organic foods. Venture 10 min. South to tour an ancient Hawaiian village at Lapakahi Park. Just 15 minutes further will put you at wonderful white sand beaches where you may glimpse a basking green sea turtle or enjoy the tourist amenities of resort shopping and dining.
