Overview

Kohala Coast House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Hale in Waimea (Kamuela). Romantic retreat with luxurious amenties.

The Lokilani Hale is prefectly located on the dry and sunny side of Waimea (Kamuela). Our peaceful, two acre retreat is ideally situated 5 miles up from the best Kohala Beaches and 5 miles down from Waimea Town.

The mountain and ocean views are enhanced by the mild temperature our 1700' elevation provides. This private cottage is a romantic honeymoon hide-a-way and perfect home base for Island exploration.

There is a fully equipped kitchen and indoor dining area or the option of cooking outdoors on the gas BBQ and al fresco dining on the lanai.

A flat screen television is provided in the living area and there is complimentary WiFi.

Enjoy the luxurious spa bathroom complete with copper soaking tub for two and private garden.

We use chemical free cleaners in all of our properties....healthy for you and the environment.

You will find yourself minutes away from the best beaches on the Big Island. The largest of Hawaii Island’s white sand beaches, Hapuna Beach, has consistently been rated on numerous international Top Ten lists. Mauna Kea Beach, a perfect crescent of golden sand leading to calm water, has been voted among the Top 10 beaches in the U.S. Both offer great conditions for swimming, sunbathing, bodyboarding and snorkeling.

Beyond the beaches, Hawaii offers a host of outdoor activities and sightseeing opportunities. Head to the Paniolo Town of Waimea and visit the many shops and galleries.

There's no better way to experience the amazing cultural diversity of Hawaii Island than to visit one of the farmers’ markets that take place all around the island. You’ll find fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables used in Hawaii Regional Cuisine, exotic varieties that are as intriguing as they are tasty plus an eclectic collection of prepared foods.The market is also a great place to pick up handmade artwork or a unique gift and strike up a conversation with the artist who made them.

Waimea Town is the perfect starting point for a trip to the Volcano National Park. A memorable drive to Hilo along the Hamakua Coast offers breathtaking views of historic Waipio Valley. This area is also home to Akaka Falls, one of Hawaii's most famous. You'll see deep water-carved gulches and valleys, thick with tropical foliage. Stop and tour gardens full of exotic plants and orchids.

For adventure of a higher nature, the 13,700 foot summit of Mauna Kea provides dramatic scenery and an unforgettable visitor experience. The W. M. Keck Observatory provides a visitor’s gallery with exhibits describing astronomy research and star gazing.

When you're ready for some relaxation, come home to Lokilani Hale.

Let us know if you will be celebrating a special occasion or have a certain needs. We will do all we can to accomodate your request. You will always feel welcome at Lokilani and long to return to our unique retreat.

We have found the best guide book is “Hawaii The Big Island Revealed”

by Andrew Doughty ISBN 13: 978-0-9814610-0-7.

If our calendar at the Lokilani Hale is full, please contact us as we have other beautiful homes that may be available for your desired dates.

Tranquil Retreat for Exploring the Island

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 nights at Hale Lokilani as a solo traveler in celebration of turning 50. The property is peaceful and beautiful and the location at 1700' is perfect for the sound of chirping birds, cool breezes and amazing night time star gazing. You are 10 minutes to beautiful beaches and 10 minutes to the town of Waimea which has some casual places to eat (Hawaiian Style Café for breakfast and Pau for lunch/dinner). Lokilani is very clean, simply designed, has nice natural light, and is quiet and relaxing... and the tile/stone shower and tub are a wonderful place to rejuvenate after a day of exploring the island. I ate out a lot being single, but the kitchen is more than equipped to cook up something from the local store or farmer's market. You are within an hour of visiting some of the most amazing places - Polulu Beach, Waipio Valley, Umauma Falls, Kolekole Beach, Akaka Falls, Hilo, Mauna Kea... the north part of the island consists of many microclimates and diverse landscapes. I also enjoyed a great massage from Renee (Big Island native) who comes out to Lokilani to share her healing energy. Matt was a pleasure to converse with... and they are a text away for assistance... but they also leave you to your space. Lynette (Matt's sister) was super easy and pleasant in addressing the reservation and any questions. I'm blessed to have found this place for an adventurous and relaxing trip to the Big Island. There are other rental cottages on the property... but the landscaping provides privacy for each visitor... and I enjoyed the limited conversations I had with other travelers about their favorite experiences on the island. This is not a resort... and those are not for me... instead, it is a serene place lovingly created by Matt & Rose for those who want to explore the island in a setting that is as close to natural as possible while still enjoying some luxuries.

Present Description Needs some Revisions

  • 3 of 5

We have successfully rented from this website on many occasions. Once again we relied on the owner's description was well renter reviews. Lokilani is listed as a 1 Bedroom 1 Bath house or cottage. We were not happy to discover it is actually only a large bedroom and large bath/dressing room with no living room. Not comfortable to entertain guests in bedroom. The "fully equipped kitchen" had no stove or oven as listed - only a toaster oven, couple of hot plates, one fry pan, one pot. This 2 acre parcel in fact has 4 rental units as well as owner unit sandwiched between 2 of rentals. I believe the entire listing should be more accurate.

I do not wish to take away from all positive comments by others regarding the owner Matt and his sharing of lovely organic produce.

Owner's Response: I am really shocked at this review. We have had 33 reviews from previous guests. Twenty four are 5 star and nine are 4 star. This is the first time we have received anything less. First and foremost the description and photos are absolutely accurate! With regards to the kitchen, you were sent photos of the newly remodeled space. It clearly shows in those pictures a large convection/toaster oven and a state of the art double burner induction cook top. The pictures also show a full size refrigerator and service ware. While the pots and pans and prep tools are in a cabinet and not in the pictures…..we provide more than one pot and one pan. In addition to the indoor kitchen there is a gas BBQ on the lanai. With numerous farmers markets in the area we know our guests will be preparing delicious meals from local products and we supply the tools. I’m sorry you didn’t feel the space adequate for entertaining guests but you and your husband were the guests of this double occupancy unit. There is ample space on the lanai for more than 2 guests. Yes our beautiful 2 acre retreat has four vacation rentals. Each one is very private, quiet and serene. In fact Sally, when you first inquired about Lokilani you mentioned in your email that you had a lot of family coming to the Island and asked if we had additional accommodations for them. Our home is not just “sandwiched” between two of the rentals. It was architecturally designed with much care to compliment the other units. Because we live on the property we are able to provide service to our guests when needed. Because all the units have private entries and outdoor spaces everyone enjoys an abundance of privacy. I am happy you enjoyed the complimentary organic fruits and eggs I provided while you were here. We like to share with all of our guests. As Sally has said, she relies on the owners descriptions as well as posted reviews when deciding on a vacation rental. I can confidently say that the description of Lokilani and all of our rentals is accurate. The Lokilani is a beautiful, private and quiet retreat that offers all the amenities needed for a short visit or an extended stay. Inside and outside we strive to reflect our love of Hawaii and this property and find much joy in sharing with our guests. Please read the reviews from previous guests of Lokilani…..the same reviews Sally read. I promise you will not be disappointed with your decision to be our guest. Aloha and Mahalo Matthew and Rose

Perfect Home in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this place it was clean on a beautiful property in the perfect location.

I absolutely loved this house the bed was comfortable and felt like home the bathroom was luxurious specially with the copper soaker tub in the middle of the huge bathroom.

The location is in the perfect spot close to the best beaches the island has to offer an easy trip into Kona as well as to Hilo. We spent almost 2 weeks and made many trips to Kona as well as Hilo.

Waimea is a beautiful town with lots to offer a great brewhouse exceptional restaurants fabulous farmers market. I fell in love with this town during my visit and found myself often talking about retiring here

Thank you for the exceptional hospitality during our stay if we visit again we would definitely stay here again hands-down

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

The condo is very quiet and very well equipped. It is located in a very quiet area with a lot of nature around. Matthew is very helpful and friendly. It's not far to the beach; quiet and secluded beaches can be reached very quickly with a rental car. Waimea is a nice quiet town and the weather there is perfect. Contact to the owner is perfect by email and we found everything as described. German Translation: Die Wohnung ist sehr ruhig und sehr gut ausgestattet. Es liegt in einer sehr ruhigen Umgebung mit viel Natur drumherum. Matthew ist sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Es ist nicht weit zum Strand; ruhige und einsame Strände kann sehr schnell mit einem Mietwagen erreichen. Waimea ist eine schöne, ruhige Stadt und das Wetter ist perfekt. Kontakt zum Eigentümer war völlig problemlos per E-Mail und wir fanden alles wie beschrieben vor.

Beautiful and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to relax and enjoy this part of the Big Island. You are close to Waimea for great restaurants as well being close (ten minute drive) to some of the best beaches in all of Hawaii. The suite has everything you need for a comfortable stay including a fully equipped kitchen as well as a private sitting area with a gas grill. The crowning touch is the large copper soaking tub! Additionally the owner Matt is great, sharing some of the fruits and veggies from his organic garden/farm. All in all if you are looking for a great location to relax and enjoy the Kohala coast you can't go wrong here.
