Spectacular views from all areas of this comfortable home with a solar heated salt water pool combined with excellent indoor/outdoor living make this a beautiful Hawaiian vacation home. Eco friendly with electricity and hot water generated by solar panels which augment the local utility. Enjoy the private lava rock outdoor shower which has orchids growing throughout and a magnificent ocean view. Outdoor shower has Hot/Cold water and was featured in Local Hawaiian Home Magazine. Expansive lawn and tropical landscaping which are illuminated by landscape lighting create a tranquil setting. Eight seat teak dining table on front lanai is a great gathering place. Teak pool lounges provide ample seating. WiFi is provided throughout the property as well as premium movie channels.
My husband and I stayed here for a week, and we were delighted with our choice! The open views are amazing, yet the property is landscaped in such a way that it still feels very private. The house is very well stocked with whatever you may need, and grocery stores at Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Village are a short drive for anything else. Hapuna beach is great and only a 5 minute drive away. We found the location to be a perfect base for exploring the island, as access to a variety of routes are not far, and you can avoid the traffic of Kona. Mahalos to Paul and Tami for their assistance whenever it was needed. We will be back.
My family of 5 adults and a 15 month old all had an amazing time staying at this property. The view is astounding. We spent our meals watching whales breach, play, fin and tail slap and were awed to see both a mother and baby and a birth. The house is gorgeous, and the kitchen very well stocked. The supplies for beach going were also perfect. I know people talk about the outside shower, but you can't really appreciate it until you're on the property. No one (not even the baby) showered inside--why would you when you can watch the sunrise, sunset or whales playing when showering. The house is located in a peaceful part of Kohala, yet close to the most gorgeous beaches and resorts in the world. The local fruit and vegetable stand, the shave ice truck and the fresh fish market were all 5 minutes away, as well as a macadamia nut farm and a quirky, fun botanical garden. Paul was easy to contact, quick to respond and very helpful. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a fantastic stay on the Big Island. We want to go back ASAP.
We took our family of 6 to Hawaii and had an incredible time staying at this gorgeous property. Paul was excellent to deal with and very helpful before and during our stay, answering emails or texts promptly. The home and yard are beautiful and very well cared for. All areas of the property were clean and well stocked with basic needs. The outside shower is fantastic!!! The pool is such a bonus too! The view from the Lanai for sunrise and sunset is perfect! For our Family, with some adults and some teenagers, this location was a great space to be together or have individual space. This property is under a 10 minute drive from the Macadamia Nut farm, a variety of restaurants and a few shops, including a sports rental. It is in a great location for starting out on a variety of site seeing adventures. I would HIGHLY recommend this property for anyone wanting a great vacation on the Big Island!
It was my first time to be in Hawaii and the Kohala Kai place made my trip more than perfect. Most of all, its ocean view from the place was absolutely beautiful. You would feel that the whole ocean side of Waimea is your own frontyard. All of my family members were fully satisfied with the place. It is super clean and well-organized. I loved its swimming pool in particular. The pool is more luxurious than any other hotels' and also the yard is amazingly gardened with tress and flowers. We played a small guitar , played Croquet, grilled Tuna and beef for our dinner outside with the ocean view, and cooked in the kitchen. Where did I get all of them? Did I bring my own guitar and Croquet? No! They were all prepared inside the Kohala Kai place!! There was a banana tree which gave us fresh, delicious bananas everyday---it was the owner's courtesy. It has everything you need during your trip. I highly recommend that you MUST choose this place for your trip to the Big Island. I was very impressed and moved by the owner's kindness and professional service. I will definitely choose this place again if I ever come back to Kamuela.
We have been to the Kohala Coast area of the Big Island many times and this is the best rental experience we have had. The house is beautiful, clean, well cared for, and nicely stocked and maintained. We loved having the pool available for late-afternoon dips after spending the mornings at the nearby beaches. The view really was spectacular from the pool as we saw numerous whales off the coast while we were lounging in the pool. The owner was very responsive to the couple of questions we had after we moved in. My wife, daughter, and I thought the outdoor shower was a real treat! One cool bonus was the quick return of my security deposit, it beat us home from our trip! Many thanks for the great time and for sharing your beautiful home with us, we look forward to visiting again.
This property exceeded our expectation! The home was immaculate, well stocked with kitchen supplies, beach gear, towels and sundries. Comfortable bed and furnishings both indoor and out. The view is commanding and we enjoyed every morning and evening outdoors taking it all in. Sirene, quiet, private with nature abound. Besides the spectacular view, the outdoor shower and the salt water pool were real delights. We never used the indoor shower ( why would anyone?) and the sparkling blue pool was always refreshing for a quick dip anytime of the day. Owners were pleasant, unobtrusive and quick to respond to any of our needs. Good restaurants nearby if you don't wish to cook. Convenient location set away from the resort crowds. The only complaint we had was having to leave. Simply magical. Loved every minute there and plan to return.
The Kohala Coast is renowned for its clear ocean waters and has been referred to as the 'Gold Coast' due to the abundance of tropical fish. Any activity on, or in the water is recommended.
