Wailea Bay house description

Kolea (the Hawaiian name for the Pacific Golden Plover) are believed to have been migrating between Alaska and Hawaii for at least 120,000 years, returning to the same spot year after year. Symbolizing the unbroken continuity of nature’s rhythms, the kolea is an “aumakua” or “protector spirit” and figures in many Hawaiian stories, songs, chants and hula. It is an apt name for this seaside home, whose owner first came to the site as a child in 1929. Now one of four homes in this family compound (see also Honu, Ehu Kai and Ulu Niu), Kolea itself represents continuity, with many families returning to it every year—for good reason: it is a rare find: a beachfront vacation home at an affordable rate. Set amid the cooling shade of a coconut palm collection that was once the largest in the state, Kolea’s grassy yard is nearly an acre in size—great for children. Steps away is the white sand beach of Waialea Bay, where you’ll swim, dive, snorkel and sunbathe while enjoying the honu (sea turtles), manta rays and wintertime whale activity.
The two-bedroom, two-bath, two-story home, built in 1969 and recently renovated, offers comfortable beachside living with cool breezes, outdoor dining, ocean views and spectacular sunsets. Kolea is one of only a handful of vacation rentals available on Waialea Bay, a prized location for a Hawaii vacation.
