Property description

Experience the Spirit of Aloha in our home on the Big Island of Hawai'i!

Our island home, situated on the slopes of Mauna Loa in South Kona, offers over 180-degree views of the Pacific coastline and spectacular sunsets. Described by one of our guests as a 'jewel in the hillside,' our island home offers the beauty, peace and serenity that is Hawai'i.

Adorned with art and unique furnishings from local and international artists, we have thought of everything that you could possibly need to make your island stay comfortable and enjoyable. From linens and towels, to a well-equipped kitchen, to guidebooks in the library, Hale Mele Kohola has it all!

In the daytime, you can go to the beach a couple of streets below and play in the tidal pools. Or hike along the coast and investigate a cinder cone. Discover secret coves! During season, watch whales and dolphins swim by. Or maybe you will go sightseeing or snorkeling and swim with the turtles and multi-colored fish. Perhaps you will just stay at home and read. Or enjoy a freshly brewed cup of Kona coffee as you relax in one of our Indonesian sling-back chairs on the lanai.

In the evenings, you can watch the sun dip toward the sea, painting the skies in brilliant hues of reds, oranges, pinks, purples, and blues. Soothing breezes fan the trees, sending up scents of plumeria. Soon the evening stars appear and the surf is heard above the hush that follows the setting of the sun. Night falls and the coastline becomes dotted with lights.

For dinner, you might decide to go to one of the restaurants in a nearby town or venture down to Kailua for more choices and a little nightlife; although it would be lovely to stay and eat in. The kitchen can accommodate even the most enthusiastic chef! Enjoy the dining set made from three hundred year-old roots from a jungle in Thailand. Afterward, sink into one of the sofas and feel the inviting softness of the hand-knotted rug from Tibet under your bare feet. Select a movie to watch from the DVD collection in the teak armoire. Or listen to music played on a high quality stereo.

Finally, as night settles over the island, slip into the cool, comfortable bed and let the sound of the surf and the night wind be your lullaby.

Your island home is waiting for you! Come to stay at Hale Mele Kohola!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: While we were in college we would take day trips either to Shenandoah in Virginia or to Sugarloaf Mountains in Maryland. At other times we would go to Ocean City. We would talk about how wonderful it would be to live in a place where both features existed side by side. When we came to Hawaii we saw that this dream could come true. Our children agreed as they also love the mountains and the sea. Buying an island home to where we could come for rejuvenation has been one of the best decisions of our life.

Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook:
While in the military, we lived on Oahu for three very short years, then our tour was up and had to go to the next station. Before we left, we did have a chance to visit the Big Island. We had heard that it got cold in Volcano and that the mountains would be snow capped in winter. We were intrigued so we went for a weekend and sure enough, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa had snow on their peaks! In the morning there was frost on the windows. There are sixteen micro-climates in the world and fourteen are on the Big Island; is that not astounding? You can go from alpine to semi-arid in a matter of a few hours! We fell in love with the Big Island and secretly wished that someday we would return. We liked its slower pace of life. We go on holiday to get away from it all and we can do that here. When we look at the sweeping views of the coastline and the beautiful sunsets and the way the moon shimmers in the water; the schools of dolphins and pods of whales that swim by - all from the vantage point of our lanai, we know that we made the correct decision to buy a vacation rental here.

More than just a rental, Hale Mele Kohola is a real home!
