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.

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
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.
