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 Kohala Coast

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.

Exceeded Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us visited the Big Island to celebrate a milestone birthday and we couldn't have asked for a better place to make our home base. All of us are familiar with the Hawaii and had done all of the typical Kona stuff, so getting to stay in Havi and look at the "other side" of Haleakala each morning was a treat. The accommodations, comfort, views, interaction with the host, views, animals, fireplace and the views really made this trip - it was just such a great place to relax and spend quality time, cook, and play together. We all would wholeheartedly recommend Kohala Lodge and will probably be back ourselves. One note if you're planning on a party of 6. We all agreed that this is really better suited for 4 adults (or for family members) based on seating and sleeping arrangements. Though it worked fine for our group, the upstairs sleeping loft is not divided into bedrooms (that's part of the charm though) so privacy is limited when you have two couples sharing that space. I share this as informational only, because as I said, we would certainly stay here again!

True paradise...

  • 5 of 5

Of all the rentals we have visited over the years this was our absolute favorite. Every detail of this hand crafted home is artful and cozy-we especially loved sipping tea in front of the fire and the view of Kohala coast. Had a lovely talk with Chris and Carol, the most charming couple who built the lodge. Locally we enjoyed Sushi Rock in Hawi, the hike through Pololu Valley and getting massages in Kawaihae....Hope to be back soon!

A truly special place!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of spending 8 days at the Kohala Lodge over winter break. There is something magical about the place. It's a true retreat tucked away in Hawi with the most beautiful grounds, horses & goats, a large porch perfect for morning coffee and evening cocktails, plus stunning views .... we saw shooting stars, rainbows ... I could go on and on. Accommodations were comfortable and I loved cooking in the kitchen! If you are looking for someting unique and truly special, book this property!

An amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to stay on the Big Island and you want something unique and different from a big resort complex look no further and book this house! This place was magical from the moment we pulled up! A stunning house with equally stunning views - rain or shine (we had both!). The inside of the house is so comfortable and cozy (that kitchen!!) and then outside you have the peace and quiet and the animals! My 4 year old son was so happy to run around and to feed the animals...while we were happy to sit on the deck and enjoy the views (and sunsets!). This house was perfect and is great for any group or family who wants to get away from it all and enjoy a slice of paradise. Chris and his wife were wonderful hosts! We made such amazing memories here and I was sad to leave and can't wait to go back...

Idillic setting and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at this fantastic property. When we drove up, we all had our jaws drop. It is even lovelier than the pictures. The house sits high up the hill from the little town of Hawi and overlooks the ocean. When the clouds move out of the way, you can see Maui across the channel. The house is a beautiful lodge home that really fits the character of the area (the Parker Ranch/Waimea area horse properties). The owners live in a house screened by trees down the hill. You'd never know they were there unless you had a question or needed something, and then they were right there to ask. They have horses and sheep in the pasture just below the house and treats to feed them. My kids were in heaven waking up every day to an awesome tree swing, hammock in the trees, huge lawn, and animals to interact with. We loved sitting out on the huge front porch and watching the sunsets and stars. The house was well appointed and beds were comfortable. The town of Hawi has several really good restaurants and some of the best ice cream on the Island. There's a farmer's market and good grocery store, and fun artisan shops to browse through. Great beaches are a short drive away and they have boogie boards, towels, chairs and umbrella ready for you. If you are looking for a great place to get away from it all, this is it. We all wanted to move in and were really sad to leave. Thanks for an amazing stay!

Pure magic

  • 5 of 5

It was love at first sight online and the feeling was just as strong in situ. Peaceful location, 30 minutes from the beaches. The ranch-style house felt very authentic, comfortable, beautifully decorated. The horses and goats came to greet us when offered treats. Garden is gorgeous. It was like stepping in a dream... peaceful, blissful, wonderful! I highly recommend this place and would go back in a jiffy!
