About Chris Wej

We fell in love with this magical property on top of the hill and decided to build a unique dream house for our retirement. We are too young to retire so decided to share it with you and your family as a vacation rental.

Chris Wej purchased this house in 1997

Why Chris Wej chose Hawi

North Kohala is known as God's country. It is the richest part of the island in terms of natural beauty.

What makes this house unique

There are spectacular coastal views and You can see the chain of Hawaiian Island from the Lodge. There are moonbows on certain nights. Star gazing is perfect from this property.

A lovely bit of peace

  • 5 of 5

I brought my son, daughter-in-law and toddler here for a respite from a very stressful period. This lodge was just what we needed. It was clean, comfortable and beautiful, in fact, the beauty of the house and its surroundings stands out as unique in the area. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and listening to the birds and watching cardinals and egrets flit about. The setting was perfect for relaxing. It's also an easy place to stay with small children since there's so much for them to do and see.

The kitchen has everything we needed for cooking meals and there were also face-masks and flippers for snorkeling.

wonderful rustic lodge with magestic views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at Kohala Lodge. Our host, Chris, was great. The lodge is well equipped. We spent the first part of our Big Island Vacation at Waikoloa Beach, and it was very nice to get away from the tourist scene and spend some time in the laid-back Hawi area. Our 14 month-old grandson enjoyed meeting the sheep and horses. The views of the ocean and Maui were magnificent. We would highly recommend Kohala Lodge!

Sublime, beautiful...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with dear friends, and our toddlers, so 2 couples and 3 kiddos (17 mo twins and a 19mo). Chris and Carols beautiful house was exactly what we were looking for, somewhere rural for us city folks to re-calibrate and experience the beauty of Hawaii in. We loved everything about the house, cooking meals in the kitchen, long easy mornings on the porch drinking Kona coffee and hanging out with the animals, the parade of rainbows on a rainy day, evening stargazing, exploring Hawi, farmers markets, and local playgrounds and beaches...I could go on and on. We even got to listen to Chris’s bluegrass band on our island road trips, and play his guitar in the living room for the kiddos before bedtime, what a wonderful vacation we won’t soon forget!
