Hawi guest house description

Located in the secluded village of Niulii one can wake up to the sounds of country life, and experience authentic Hawaiian Hospitality The experience is of 'one that belongs' equal to all who inhabit the village. The homes are simple and reasonably priced for the budget traveler to relax and enjoy.


Hawaiian Style: Kohala's Guest House is the only Hawaiian owned and operated vacation rental in North Kohala. The rentals portray
the owners' humbleness ( ha'a ha'a) wisdom (na'auao) and the love for the Hawaiian lifestyle, that is simple and in balance with the life forces, its people, and the land.

Aloha Hawaiian Hospitality: Aloha in its generic term is often translated as hello, goodbye, and love. In Old Hawaii, aloha had a deeper meaning. The word breaks down into 'alo' meaning 'in the presence of' or 'to share' and 'ha' is the 'breath' which is the life energy, by Native Hawaiian terms it is a sacred word, which means, 'Sharing the Breath of Life.' The Aloha Spirit is a spirit of harmony, affection, and mutual respect and is reflected in the way we interact and treat others. Experience the essence of the the true Hawaiian Hospitality where 'Aloha' is not just hello or good bye. Here Aloha is a gift from the heart.

Birds, Bees and Bounty: If you sit on the lanai of Kohala's Guest House you will be entertained by the variety of birds that land and sing in the citrus trees that grow in the front yard. Oranges, Lemons, Limes, and Guava and Passion fruit when in season seem
to draw these birds on to the aina (land).

                      Location

                      Car: Necessary

                      Kohalas Guest House is within walking distance to Keokea Beach Park. The park has a fresh water stream flowing into the ocean almost all year round. Keokea Park is a surfing spot used by the islanders and is great for picnicking or whale watching during the winter months. Niulii Village is a hikers paradise as Pololu Valley is less than two miles away. Guests usually pack a lunch and spend a day hiking down into the valley and bask in the sweet breath of Kohalas kamakani (wind).

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: Nani in Hawaiian means "beautiful" or a "good thing." Nani Svendsen is active in the Kohala community, as a business woman and organizer of cultural celebrations. Nani's Hawaiian roots claim seven generations in Niulii Village. Besides operating the guest houses and her volunteer work, Nani is a professional florist with over 30 years experience. She owns and operates He Nani Florist (it's beautiful) specializing in tropical floral designs for significant life events. Don Svendsen came to Hawaii from a distant land and fell in love with Hawaii and Nani. Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Don moved to Niulii in 1978 and learned to appreciate the multi-cultural lifestyle of the islands. A master finish carpenter by trade, he has built the guest houses and many of the homes in Kohala owned by friends he had made through the guest houses. Nani and Don have hosted people from all walks of life at the guest houses: from old time Kohalans returning for reunions, to visitors from foreign lands. Kohala's Guest House welcomes all with a warm, "E komo mai....Aloha" Come in...Share the breath of life.

                      Why the Owner Chose Hawi:
                      We built Kohala's Guest House ourselves to welcome all of our guests to experience our wonderful village of Niulii in historic North Kohala.
