Kohala Estates house description
Humpback Whales are found throughout the world, and are famous for their long migrations, feeding in cold northern waters, yet giving birth, raising young, and mating in warm tropical waters. From Alaska, that means a trip of 2400 miles to Hawaii every fall (like many Alaskan residents!) One of whom is the owner of this lovely home. She is fortunate to work in two of the most beautiful parts of the world, studying whales - Southeast Alaska and the Hawaiian Islands. During her graduate work at the University of Hawaii, she got hooked on the beautiful Kohala Coast and met the close friends with whom she started the Hawai'i Marine Mammal Consortium. She and her husband make their home in a small town in Alaska for most of the year, and spend part of the winter whale season on the Big Island, enjoying the local foods, culture and ocean.
They have opened their doors to share their sanctuary with others seeking renewal and refreshment on the Big Island. Ideally located on the Kohala Coast, Hale Kohola has expansive views of the ocean and coastline. This 2 bedroom/ 2 bath plus office /TV room has enough room to sleep six, if you include the fold out futon sofa in the TV room. The layout allows privacy for both bedrooms which are separated by the living areas. The kitchen is well planned for cooking and storage and views of the ocean while you prepare meals.
Situated on 3 acres, it is a rare find for privacy, beauty, star gazing and Island Living. The landscaping includes a few fruit trees and fragrant flowers, but the focus is on species native to Hawaii which includes a few endangered species (koaia, ohai and hibiscus). Fully equipped; comfortable and clean, you will find Hale Kohola to be perfect for your dream vacation in Hawaii.

INCREDIBLY SERENE AND BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY!
INCREDIBLY SERENE AND BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY!
I was fortunate to attend a women's retreat at this home. There were only two of us staying in the home, yet we hosted a dozen other women during the day for spiritual gatherings. The house is so clean and beautiful, with panoramic views of the coastline. We could see Maui from the lanai! At night the stars were exquisitely beautiful, viewing the Milky Way and shooting stars was an added treat. This is truly a fantastic value! Close to the beaches and restaurants and various ocean activities! I highly recommend it!
