Hale Nana Kohola (Whale Watch House) offers a tropical retreat that showcases the best of Hawaii and is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family vacation. Escape to the sunny Kohala Coast on the Island of Hawaii. Hawaii's perfect year-round weather allows for your endless summer. Puako is one of the sunniest spots in all Hawaii. This tropical paradise meets the blue Pacific ocean. Hale Nana Kohola frames Haleakala, Maui's highest peak directly from the gorgeous lanais across the reflective HEATED infinity swimming pool.
You feel thoroughly at home, and completely at your best with every imaginable amenity. Designed to inspire, its beauty and connects you with the surrounding environment.
'Hale Nana Kohola' Villa is 4500 sq ft of architectural masterpiece on the beach in beautiful Puako. 3000 additional sq. ft. of lanais to lounge around on when you're not at the beach. Kayaking and snorkeling only steps away in pristine clear coral reefs where Humpback whales come to breed.


This home offers 2 master suites, 2 guest bedrooms with their own baths, a media room with a bath, an open living, dining and gourmet kitchen area with cathedral ceilings that opens to a huge covered lanai adjacent to the 46' 360 degree infinity pool.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Jane is an artist and a designer and Ron is a contractor. They both have teamed up over the last forty years to build homes with balance and flow that they and visitors can enjoy. It is like creating a feeling that is appealing to the senses. Over the years with Jane’s visions and Ron’s construction ability and help from various architects, several of their homes have been awarded; have been in charity events for architectural walks and in publications.

                          Why the Owner Chose Puako:
                          When we found Puako we felt we were home. It reminded us of old Hawaii, a sleepy little street running along the Beautiful Kahoka Coast. It was not our intent while building to use it as a vacation rental. It just happened and we have been very fortunate to share this paradise with others.
