HAWI PLANTATION HOUSE & ESTATE - ROMANCE, REUNION, REJUVENATION

Hawi House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedroom 6 Bathroom Sleeps 14

Bring your family or plan a special group retreat to enjoy Kohala's most elegant plantation house and the magic of Hawaii. Close to beaches and steps from town, this lovely estate provides comfortable accommodations for up to 14, refreshing salt water pool, gym facilities and an unparalleled Hawaiian experience.

The Hawi Plantation House is a turn of the century home built in the heyday of the sugar plantation era for living and entertaining in style. Newly remodeled and upgraded, this unique and historic estate features 10 rooms (6.5 bedrooms and 6 baths) comfortably furnished with fine art and antiques. Dive into the 44 foot pool or take a stroll through the 2.2 acre grounds enjoying mature bamboo, palms, and tropical flowers. No need to leave your workout program behind on this vacation, in our separate workout facility with free weights, elliptical trainer and more.

This property is ideal for family reunions (up to 14 people), group retreats and special events. However you plan to use the property, you will discover that it was designed with hosting in mind. Nothing speaks to that more than the kitchen or hearth of this home. Enjoy a bottle of wine with friends and family while preparing a meal in the gourmet kitchen. Better yet, hire a local personal chef to cater to your desired palate. Either way, the 8-burner Wolfe gas stove, custom bar and informal dining area will leave you feeling full of peace and joy.

Fall in love with historic Hawi town and all it has to offer; art, dining, galleries, gift shops and a coffee house, all a short walk from the home. This unique spot is the heart of North Kohala and it is unspoiled by excessive tourism, traffic, and VOG (volcanic pollution). Maui's Haleakala volcano can be seen across the Alenuihaha channel as you are delighted by the scent of tropical flora. The town is located at 500 feet of elevation and cooled by the trade winds. Just half of a mile from the ocean, the climate is rarely too hot or humid.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My family and I stayed in your gorgeous Hawi home in July. This was the first time our families had met, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting for such an important occasion! Your beautiful home and it's lovely amenities provided everyone with a comfortable, fun atmosphere in which to become acquainted.

More than anything, we appreciate the trust you placed in us as strangers to care for your home! Thank you very much for your generosity.

We purchased this home in 1998 for future retirement and because the area was so beautiful. Over the next two years we renovated every square inch adding top of the line appliances and furnishings, We visited from San Francisco frequently but after every trip it became increasingly more difficult to leave our Hawaii paradise. In 2003 we sold our house in Mill Valley and moved to Hawi where our second son was born in the upstairs master. As my children have grown older and I have begun to travel it made sense to allow others to enjoy the house as a vacation destination. No one has been disappointed. Much Aloha Jim

Bill Newcomb purchased this house in 1998

The area is not only beautiful and off the beaten path, but the people are really nice. Everywhere you go folks are full of Aloha. The ocean is pristine and the mountains are accessible. The ethnic diversity of Hawaii is showcased in this small eclectic community where locals intermingle with newcomers and visitors. North Kohala is a laid back community, yet filled with positive energy. We are moving towards self sustainable living in a place where we respect the local heritage, the land, and our diversity.

The house is amazing! I have heard guests scream with delight upon entering. It is difficult to capture the splendor of the house in pictures. There are 2.2 acres of grounds, a greenhouse, gym and pool. The house has two separate screened-in lanais and no bedroom has a common wall. There is plenty of space here to create alone time.

From Hawi you can go ten minutes west to dry heat and swimming, fifteen minutes east to lush tropical jungle and the wild Pololu Valley, twenty minutes south to the summit views from the cool Kohala Mountain top or you can walk into Hawi town and enjoy a cup of coffee with the locals then get a massage or shop for locally made treasures in our artist filled community. All the major resorts of the Kohala Coast are a short drive south and our local state parks for swimming and snorkeling are less than 10 minutes away.

EXCELLENT STAY

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the best bed and breakfast places that I have ever stayed. The place is magnificent! My family stayed here during a visit to the Big Island for a wedding. The house is beautifully maintained with very traditional decor. We stayed in the master bedroom with an adjoining bedroom for the kids. We woke up to a wonderful Hawaiian breakfast. The caretaker of the property was welcoming and had great rapport with all the guests. My son loved the pool behind the property as well. Its also a short walk into the shops in Hawi. I would definitely stay here again to stay away from the craziness of Kona and really enjoy North Kohala.

WEDDING BLISS

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect house for a wedding destination! The house was gorgeous and the surrounding tropical garden created such a romantic atmosphere for my fiance and I to get married in front of our family and close friends. We wanted a small and intimate wedding where everyone can be in a relaxing and romantic mood. There were plenty of rooms for our families who wanted to stay and enjoyed their visit to Hawi. The house has a cute cottage that we used as our honeymoon suite which gave us complete privacy from our house guests. If you are looking for a beautiful and serene place to get marry, you definitely have to check this place out!

IF YOU EVER WANT TO FALL IN LOVE WITH A HOUSE, THIS IS THE ONE! A GETAWAY FOR ALL YOUR LOVE ONES.

  • 5 of 5
We had a family gathering in this BEAUTIFUL house with it's old Historic charm and all the state of the art renovations! The kitchen is gorgeous and a great place for us to cook and entertain everyone. We really fell in love with lush green and tropical paradise surroundings. The house is decorated very nicely with antiques that doesn't make the house look gaudy. If you want to have a gathering or reunion with your love ones to relax and enjoy each other's company in a serene but entertaining environment. This would be the place...we are definitely going to come back but we might leave our love ones behind and enjoy the house to ourselves!

THE BEST RENTAL IN KOHALA

  • 5 of 5
Prior to booking our stay we had read one of the reviews posted on VRBO and I have to say, I was concerned but the other reviews were so positive I decided to take a chance. I am so glad I did. I can not say enough positive things about the Plantation House in Hawi!!!

We rented several rooms as we had a large group (8 people) and all of us had the most perfect, amazing experience. The grounds were as incredible as the house itself. It literally felt like we stepped back in time. Each room was beautifully decorated as well as clean and comfortable and so spacious.

All the "extra" amenities - from the huge gourmet kitchen to the beautiful sitting areas, swimming pool, workout room as well as walking distance to the most charming town on the entire Big Island, Hawi - made the Plantation House the best value for the dollar experience I've had in twenty years of visiting Hawaii.

Which leads to one of the best things about it - I'm also extremely grateful for all the money we saved. The year before we had come over with our same group and paid double per night for the same amount of rooms because we wanted to be close to the Mauna Kea resort. The Plantation House in Hawi was so much nicer and more comfortable and is a twenty minute drive to the Mauna Kea and we saved thousands of dollars by the end of our week-long stay.

Bottom line, if you want to experience Hawaii the way it used to be and get great value for the dollar, stay at the Plantation House in Hawi.

SAW REVIEW AND WANTED TO COMMENT

  • 5 of 5
I just saw the review dated 8/12 this year that was very negative and I decided to comment.

I have stayed at the Plantation House several times over the last 3 years. Each time my family has a wonderful experince in this plantation era home. This is not a hotel but a home. The grounds are wonderful to walk thru and spend time smelling the clean air around all the mature trees. I dont spend a lot of time around the pool but the kids loved being able to get in anytime. Kitchen is large enough to have 20+ people hanging out while the cooks are cooking on a 8 burner stove. Having 2 fulll size refrigarators made it so we rarely went out to eat but cooked wonderful meals.

If you are looking for a Hawaii home to stay for a week or two without the cold hotel experince the Hawi Plantation House is a wonderful way to go.
