About Kawehi Cochran

Aloha. I am a kama'aina-indigenous Hawaiian, living in a tropical environment. My residence (hale) is ideally located in the heart of Hilo with lots of authentic Hawaiian artifacts and charm. My yard is lush with many tropicals, which I carefully planted. I was born and raised in Hilo, and this was my primary residence growing up so it is dear and special to me. I have lots of local knowledge and history of Hilo and its people. My grandfather was a senator and many of his senate bills that he introduced are still on the books today. I love traveling, hosting, cooking, entertaining, avid golfer, canoe paddler and hula. Hawaii has 12 months of outdoor weather. So come and enjoy my retreat. I believe staying here will be a very special experience reminiscent of old Hawaii. You will feel the mana....spiritual power.... E komo mai.....welcome.....

Kawehi Cochran purchased this house in 1938

Hilo Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
Hale Kawehi was a delightful surprise for my two nights in Hilo. The spacious accommodations are filled with unique memorabilia of Hawaii from a different time and every room has an inviting space you want to make your own. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is wonderful to work in. The location is very close to downtown or you can turn in another direction and be at Rainbow Falls or onto the Saddle Road in minutes. Quiet, peaceful and private, I would recommend Hale Kawehi for a single traveller or a couple and look forward to a future stay. Kawehi and Mr. Princess are the perfect hosts.

Second visit. Another great experience.

  • 5 of 5
We’re just back from our second visit to Hale Kawehi in Hilo. Obviously we wouldn’t have booked it again unless we really liked it, and we were not disappointed. As we said in our previous review: ‘This was a wonderful base for exploring the Hilo area. The house is spacious and very well-equipped. It is very well set up for spending lots of time on the spacious and private lanai, which is just outside the kitchen doors and surrounded by Kawehi’s lovely garden. (There’s also a lovely verendah around the side of the house, with lots of comfie chairs.)We like good places to read at night, and there were several here, including a marvellous chair built for two. It has the feel of what it is, a family home that is full of many interesting historical objects. But as others have noted, the best thing about this rental is Kawehi herself. She is warm, engaging, and very generous.’ Thanks so much, Kawehi; we hope to be back for visit number 3 before too long.

  • 5 of 5
We were very well welcomed and given useful information:feeled ad home.
A nice place to rest and to stay.
We had pleasure to spend time and share our dinner with Kawehi: do not hesitate to propose it.
Comfortable bedroom where we really could sleep.
Even the cat Mister Princess is kind.

My Vacation in Hilo: Revisiting my former town

  • 5 of 5
It was a joy to stay at Hale Kawehi for five days of vacation. The location is excellent. My daughter and I could conveniently go out, return to Hele Kawehi between our activities to drop off our things, freshen up, and be on our way again. We could meet friends, go to restaurants and shops, reaching our destinations in a matter of a few minutes. Kewehi greeted us upon our arrival and made sure the rooms were clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a continental breakfast every morning. There was a lot of the aloha spirit at Hale Kawehi. I recommend it highly!

Personal attention to details with bonus

  • 5 of 5
As frequent visitors to the islands, we wanted a more personal and local touch to our visit to Hilo. Our hostess demonstrated an extension of herself. The home was filled tastefully with Hawaiian antiques and artifacts. Fresh croissants and guava juice awaited us. She was very helpful in answering our questions. The home was also located close to shopping and other sites we had on our "to see" list. For the price of rental, it was well worth it.
