About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Eia Makou (Here we are!) is the name of our fabulous home with both gorgeous ocean and mountain views. For decades our family traveled to the Big Island. Our kids grew up learning Hawaiian dances and Polynesian culture. Finally, we were able to buy our dream home, and now we share it with you. Please see reviews submitted by our guests, many of whom return every year. Hawaii is special. A Hawaiian Kahu blessed our home, and we have furnished it Hawaiian style, with every modern amenity blended into the spirit of Aloha. The furnishings reflect the combination of excitement and relaxation and all are in the Hawaiian tradition, from the lime and lemon trees (pick your own) to the historic Hawaiian memorabilia on the walls. There are TVs in all three bedrooms as well as in the great room. The kitchen is as complete as one could wish. Eia Makou is the perfect spot for family bonding and offers a base for exploring the diversity of the Big Island, from beaches to volcanoes. E komo mai ('please come in.')

Why Barbara Yamanaka chose Kohala Coast

Perfect spot for whale watching and temperature.

What makes this house unique

Close to everything important to visiting Hawaii. This home is located just 10 minutes from the best beach on the Big Island, Hapuna Beach. There are also 5 other beaches within a 20 minute drive to choose from.

Just 3 miles down the road you can catch your Whale watching boat that leaves from the Kawaihae Harbor, along with sunset cruises, deep sea fishing expeditions and scuba diving excursions.

There are excellent restaurants serving Local fast foods as well as Seafood, Gourmet pizza, Pacific Cuisine, Sushi, Burgers, Ice Cream and Shave Ice, along with night time music and dancing. 4-5 star restaurants are within the 20 minute driving range, and shopping for just about any and all tastes can be found at the Waikoloa King and Queen shops. For even more options try The Shops at Mauna Lani. Also located at The Shops at Mauna Lani is a full grocery store so that you can stock up on what you need.

The weather is consistant here with only 7 ' of rain on avarage per year.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Every year my wife and I rent a house for vacation.

Usually in Maui. This was our first trip to the Big Island. I must tell you

that everything exceeded our expectations for a great vacation.

The house was perfect. We really appreciated the work that you put into

making the house clean and comfortable. All of the little touches and

amenities really make a difference, so thank you. We have stayed in a lot of

homes over the years, this was one of the best. On our last day we were

trying to figure out when we could come back!

Loved the Big Island! Like I said it was our first trip and we thought it

was great. So much less crowded than Maui. But with lots to do. The people

were really friendly, which we thought was really nice. Didn't do the

Volcano, we are saving that one for next time.

Thanks again and we will be back next year!

Eia makou - Amazing View, Pool, Spa and Home

  • 5 of 5

We Loved our stay at this home and would love to come back. The view and sunsets are just beautiful. The House is Big, roomy and very clean. The rooms are spacious and the bed is comfortable, the Master Bathroom is Five stars. The Solar heated pool is the best I have ever been in and would love to have at my home. The Spa is slow to heat up, but once it does there is plenty of room for all 6 guest. The Kitchen has all the gadgets necessary to cook, if that is what you love to do on vacation. The toaster was not working but was replaced within a few days, very quick response from the owner. The home is near other homes but you wouldn't know it, house is designed to have all the privacy one would want. Pool light switches were a little hard to find, maybe instructions should be added in the house book. The Air conditioner in the master bedroom is a bit noisy but we seemed to sleep thru it. Overall this house is our favorite of the 4 different homes we have rented on VRBO and is at the top of our list to visit again when we return to the Big Island of Hawaii, Maholo.

A beautiful home with all the amenities and a fantastic view. We loved swimming in the pool and lounging on the lanai. The house is top notch, private and away from the Kona area crowds. We have stayed here twice and will return again.

We love this Kohala vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything our family of six needed for our holiday vacation. It is clean, very well-equipped, and Barbara, the property manager, was very helpful and responsive to our questions and needs.

The house is located in a country-like setting, with privacy, beautiful landscaping, a large pool with spa and comfortable patio furniture. The house has a full ocean view and watching the sun set is a special part of our day!

We love that we can have easy access to all the best The Big Island has to offer from this house. It is a short drive to Waimea and Hawi and many first class beaches, restaurants, shopping, etc. It is always so welcoming to return to after a day trip and then to cool off in the pool! It just doesn't get any better than that!
