Built in 1921, this historic home offers a taste of Old Hawaii. A perfect spot for family reunions, yoga retreats, multi-family or friends’ gatherings or retreats, this plantation home has gracious volume and space to spread out. The home is located within walking distance of restaurants, shops and art galleries in quaint Hawi town, and a short drive (20 min. walk) to historic Kapa’au. This home allows the opportunity enjoy the authenticity that North Kohala has to offer, while providing easy access to hiking trails, and access to unique outdoor activities, such as the Zip Line and ATV rides on Kohala Mountain.
This is a perfect place to relax, restore, and enjoy a glimpse of a more authentic Hawaii, in North Kohala, rich with Hawaiian history and sugar plantations. Hawi is a peaceful town, with an abundance of artists and art galleries, and is known as a healing center with numerous alternative medicine practices.

The fully equipped kitchen includes a dishwasher, breakfast nook, refrigerator, electric stove, microwave, and toaster oven. The laundry room is complete with state-of-the-art appliances. The large 'yoga' room is suitable for 12, or for meetings / presentations; and makes an ideal classroom or art studio.
Beaches are 20 minutes away, as is Waimea/Kamuela; and Hale Pueo is close to numerous activities on Kohala Mountain such as the Zip Line and ATV rides, horseback riding, fluming the historic Kohala Ditch, and whale watching in the winter months.

Hawi is a special place for us because of the clean air, peace and spirituality of this part of the island. We have lived, off and on, in Hawaii for over 30 years and return as often as possible.
We were drawn to Hawi because of the authenticity of the lifestyle and comfort of the people, as well as the natural beauty and climate. We love waking up to the songbirds at dawn, and the stillness at night. We enjoy the walk to Kapa'au each morning to have coffee with our friends at Nanbu Courtyard, swimming at Mahukona, and the beaches at Mauna Kea and Kua Bay. But most of all, we enjoy the peace and beauty of the North Kohala Coast.
Staying at Hale Pueo makes us feel what it was like to be in the old Hawaii, before the resorts, when life was simple and folks depended on one another for all of their activities.
