About the property

2 Br / 2 Ba Rural Plantation Home On Acreage

Experience a comfortable island retreat away from the tourists and noise of condos. The feel of Hawaii as it once was can be found in this clean and newly remodeled plantation home. Rural homes like this have become a rare find amid the crush of the thousands of condos in Waikaloa. Blend into the local atmosphere without the shared walls, parking, and crowds to find your own aloha spirit. Wake up to gentle breezes and listening to birds singing while enjoying the view on the screened lanai with your morning coffee.

The elevation of 500, allows for warm sunny days and cool breezes in the evening. Kohala Coast enjoys 300+ days of sunshine, and is located on the dry side of the island.

Enjoy a peaceful, relaxing stay while being within 5 - 15 minutes of the very best beaches on the island. Plan your vacation to be close to whales, dolphins, sea turtles, and snorkel the best spots on the island,

Six acres of beautiful scenery surrounds this two bedroom, two bathroom plantation home set on a private peaceful parcel. Enjoy a quiet and private retreat in a rural "old Hawaii" country setting where you can dine and relax on a fully screened in lanai. The country setting allows your stresses to melt away unlike staying in a subdivision or condo.

You can enjoy views of four of the five volcanos of the big island and watch the migratory humpback whales in the tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean while avoiding the expense of the resorts. You'll find that you are central to the best that the big island offers whether it is a trip to the volcano, the observatories on Mauna Kea, Hapuna beach, Hawi, Akaka falls, Waimea, Hilo, or Kona.

Rent this home for your vacation separately or in conjunction with Kohalahome ( 6 br estate ) for your destination wedding or event. It is perfect if you need extra space for guests or just need a bit of privacy but still want to be close to the festivities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We appreciated that our hosts, Jenny and Mark, responded promptly and helpfully to our initial expression of interest and questions. Once we were on location they continued to be easily available and helpful. It felt like we had a personal concierge service. The house and location lived up to everything we had hoped for and then some. The view from the house was stunning. We loved the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. No traffic noise. No crowds. The neighbors we met were friendly and helpful. The beaches and amenities were just a short drive away. During our one week stay on Hawaii Island we visited the rest of the island from Hawi to Hilo to Volcano Village to Kona and were always happy that we could return home to Kohalahome.

Overall really nice, but . . .

  • 4 of 5

This place is well located for privacy and seclusion, reasonably priced, and very well appointed. The kitchen has all you need, including condiments, etc. The master bedroom is great with a very comfortable bed. I didn't need to use the a/c even once because there is a great breeze all the time. Well, occasionally pretty windy, which makes noise through the screened in lanai (screened view). Loved having the washer/dryer.

But, I can't ignore the issue I had with bugs. Small bugs (flying and crawling), probably because the house is in a field. The owners tried to make me happy on this, called a bug guy and even offered to let me leave a week early on a month stay. I managed to work around it (easier than finding another place and moving), but you should be aware just in case. I have stayed lots of places in Hawaii, with no bug problem. I can only think it's the long grass surrounding the house. It's on a very large lot, with long grass between every house. Others haven't mentioned bugs, so maybe it was just my bad luck or sensitivity.

Owner's Response: Potential guests should note that the house is serviced year round on regular intervals by Orkin Pest control and that the house is fully screened ( including the lanai ). Tall grass is trimmed away from the house for a fire safety perimeter. Tropical island destinations can periodically experience gnats or other small insects for which the screens are purposed.

Wonderful stay in a perfect location, and great views.

  • 5 of 5

The house Is in a great spot at about 700' up the hillside-- great views from a large screened-in porch, nice cool breezes at night. The house is spacious, with plenty closet space and the kitchen is nicely appointed. We would definitely stay there again and hope to go back soon!

Perfect Ohana Home

  • 5 of 5

This Ohana home was perfect for our stay. We rented it along with the Main House for additional family members. It had everything we needed and was close enough to walk over to the Main House. It is ideal for a family of 4 or 2 couples. The owners were very accommodating and responsive to our inquiries. Everything about our stay was great. The views are spectacular and the area is very peaceful.
