Ninole chateau / country house description
THIS CHARMING COUNTRY HOUSE is a fabulously restored Plantation Owner Estate on the wonderful rain forest side of the Island. This area is considered the ''Riviera'' of the Big Island, with the best weather, no volcanic haze what so ever as is typical of the west side, is totally safe, serene and peaceful. You will experience an almost zen-like calm here, and literally feel your blood pressure drop as you take in the natural beauty. Beautifully decorated and furnished with true ''Aloha'' its an ideal place to come unwind and ''chillax'' as the locals like to say. A nine year restoration project can now be enjoyed by you, your family and friends. This home is completely new from top to bottom, inside and out and was completed June 2013. A palm tree lined private drive leads you into the the gated botanical gardens surrounding the house.
This home is designed for entertaining, and features
a huge ocean view rear lanai, with two tiki bars, a pool table, an exterior kitchen complete with dishwasher, fridge and 10' counter with sink and can seat 14+ people. The interior has 3 bedrooms, 2 with Queen Posturepedic beds, and one with two twins. Closets all have built in organizers to store away luggage, and there are two baths. A beautiful gourmet kitchen fully equipped with cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and granite counters with a large center island that is open to the great room which has reclaimed barn wood beams, and many large picture windows to take in the garden views. There is also a formal dining room that seats 10 with picture windows to the ocean view. The large covered entry leads to an office with built-ins, a small library sitting area in case you need to do some work while on vacation. This is an ideal romantic rainforest retreat for adult couples, or just as perfect for family reunions or get togethers with friends. High end finishes, custom moldings, trim work and hardwood are everywhere. You can sip your wonderful Kona coffee from the Tiki bar, or the kitchen island, while watching the whales and cruise ships sail by. Don't want to miss the game? There is a 42'' flat screen television in the great room, with upgraded 200 channel Dishnet package and free wifi too, and a 32'' in the master. The nearly two acre botanical gardens are landscaped with hundreds of tropical specimens, and many edibles like apple bananas, mango, papayas, passion fruit, and citrus varieties, all surrounding a lagoon style dipping pool. Upon request the owners will also run the jacuzzi spa at night,which is situated in its own private gazebo. A BBQ gazebo with picnic table next to the pool and many places to lounge make this garden Oasis a wonderful place to vacation.

Loved it, loved it, absolutely loved it!!! I did not want to leave, it was so relaxing and the owners were so friendly and helpful. It was the best vacation, I ever had in a long time. The garden was so lush and green. The room was like. it was out of a magazine. I had such a good time. Thank you so very much. I would have no problem recommending your place to my friends and family.

My wife and I stayed in the Hibiscus Hale at Kololia's Garden for four nights and loved it. We had decided to spend some time on the big island on our way to Honolulu from CA. This property is located about 18 miles SW of Hilo (about 1/2 hour drive) in an area called Ninole, that includes a quaint town closeby with shops and cafe. The residence is remodeled brand new, and our accomodations included a very roomy bedroom suite with a view of the Pacific from our two windows and the private lanai. Ceiling fans kept the house temperature comfortable, and we slept very well.The grounds with gardens are absolutely gorgeous, and rival the arboretum and zoo that we visited. At the end of each day we looked forward to our routine of relaxing in the pool with a drink before retiring to our lanai in the late afternoons - this is really paradise! We were conveniently located with access to just about any sight or venue on the island. If you want to explore or partake in some sporting activities, the owners have two personal kayaks for rental, and were very helpful with transportation and sightseeing. Volcanoes National Park is only 1 1/2 hours max trip, and there is enough there to fill the whole day - very good food closeby and there is even a winery that offers tastings for only $5. Two big waterfalls are just a few minutes drive. All in all I give this property an A+ based on the comfortable accomodations, landscaped grounds with the pool and proximity to sightseeing and outdoor sporting venues. The owners are very friendly, accomodating and helpful - I definitely recommend the Hibiscus Hale at Kololia's Garden to anyone considering a visit to the big island.

About the owner: Greg and Gloria are originally from Dana Point California, and have been on the island for 13 years. We started bringing our children here for family vacations more than 2o years ago, always planning to move here on each and every trip. Greg had a construction, remodeling and landscaping business on the mainland, and Gloria worked as an American Express Travel agent, specializing in Hawaii of course. Once we arrived here we started an new remodeling business which we just retired from. Early this year we decided to make our home a vacation rental. So many friends and family members had suggested we do this over the last 8 years it felt like we were meant to.
Why the Owner Chose Ninole:
We have spent nine years building, remodeling, adding to and landscaping the property into the place it was always meant to be. It was a sad little shack when we first got here, and our slogan is from '' Humble Hovel'' to ''Heavenly Haven'' and we hope you will feel the same.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The natural beauty of this coast line is what makes living here so special. It sparkles like a jewel, with the azure blue ocean, the nearly hundreds of shades of verdant green, topped with an incredible opalescent sky, and a rainbow almost every day, you just can't beat it.
