Hawi house description

'Our Big Island vacation was perfect! We want to thank you for your attention to detail prior to our arrival. Upon arrival, the property exceeded our high expectations. The home was perfect! Everything was very clean, the kitchen was well-equipped for cooking, and the bedrooms comfortably accommodated two couples. The location in North Kohala, with views of rolling pastures and sunsets over the ocean, was a perfect jumping off point for exploring the Big Island. It was also a short drive to our favorite beach. We look forward to our return and will recommend this vacation rental to everyone we know!'

'We had a wonderful stay at your house. Now we go back to your website to relive our vacation! It was perfect!'

'We had a great stay at your house--what a beautiful and well appointed home.'

'Your home is perfect. It connects with the outdoors so well. The sun setting in the front yard and the green of the hills and trees, everything.'

Hale Pueo Kea (House of the White Owl) is located just outside of Hawi, in the Big Island’s beautiful North Kohala District. Away from the crowds, but convenient to so many activities, it also offers refuge from the heat and humidity found at sea level.

The house is on 10 quiet wooded acres, with an orchard offering bananas, limes, oranges, grapefruit, papayas, and macadamia nuts. There are two bedrooms, one bath, a fully equipped kitchen, living room with fireplace, dining room, laundry, and a large lanai. Nearby towns of Kapa’au and Hawi have fine restaurants, art galleries, and shopping. The larger town of Waimea is 19 miles up the mountain, and is the home of the famous Parker Ranch.

The best beaches on the island are a 30 minute drive from the house. As you drive the undeveloped, rocky shoreline, watch for whales from November through April. The Big Island has fabulous hiking, horseback riding, archeological sites, and of course, Volcanoes National Park. The only problem is finding the time to fit it all in.

'We enjoyed relaxing, walking, the view, seeing Maui in the distance, the horses up close, the avocados, grapefruit, balmy breezes..'

'Thanks for sharing your delightful home with us in Hawaii. We truly relaxed..'

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: My Husband and I own and operate a Ranch a short distance from Hale Pueo Kea. We chose Kohala, where cows and horses are in heaven before they die. We raise animals on only grass and rain for a exclusive buyers club and we work to steward our land to serve our community.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hawi:
                  We purchased this home in 2011. We have always admired the smart design and sustaining features and the native plants in the garden. We are excited to share it with visitors and add our special highlights to your visit. We can offer recommendations for massage, yoga, Feldenkrais, Chinese medicine and local CSA farms that can provide you with fresh produce during your stay.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Morning coffee on the lanai with the birds. Fresh fruit from the orchard including apple bananas, so delicious. Sandy beaches are 30 minutes away, yet there are amazing swim and snorkel spots much closer. Our evenings are cooler and we have fewer bugs as a result. The Kohala Mountain Road is one of the most beautiful scenic drives in this world. The Farmers Markets are delightful. Our small town is safe and welcoming and tourists have been known to go home to sell their homes and then move here.
