  • Relaxing in North Kohala

    "We really enjoyed our stay. It was exactly what we expected as posted on the VRBO website. It was nice to focus on activities on the north half of the island and we found plenty to do."

  • Wonderful Place to Stay

    "My husband and I, with 7 of our friends, spent two weeks at the Hawi Plantation House, and had the place all to ourselves. I had wanted to stay here for quite some time since I have a love of older historic homes and I love the village of Hawi. It was everything I had hoped it would be. The house was roomy and charming. The bedrooms were very comfortable, with lots of space. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for any meals we prepared, as well as having a charcoal grill that we used often. While most of the bathrooms were older styled, they were charming and very clean. There was also bathrooms for each person/couple as well as 2 1/2 baths and a laundry. The house was just a block away from restaurants and shops and 5 minutes from a small uncrowded beach park. Close by are zipline, horseback riding, & Polulu Valley and more. The pool, pool house and outdoor shower were a huge hit with all of us. There was a game room and exercise room, but none of us spent anytime in them. The house is right in town, but it was very quiet and felt very secluded with all the trees and plants. Breakfast was provided the first morning with lots of fresh fruits, yogurts, bagels & cereals. But since we were the only ones in the house for two weeks, we enjoyed them for several days. Desiree & Debbie made us feel very welcome, but also gave us our privacy. When a hurricane threatened to possibly cancel our flights home, they offered to let us stay at the house until we knew about our flight status and if need be, stay at the house until our flights were rescheduled. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it) the storm did not affect our travel plans. The downside to staying at the Hawi Plantation house would have to be that it is a bit of a drive to sights around the island, as it is just about as far north on the island as you can get. But the location was one of the reasons we chose the house. I would recommend staying here for anyone who wants a quiet, relaxing stay away from the crowds. And I'm hoping that we will be back soon."

  • A great house for groups or families!

    "We had a great time staying in this lovely home. There were seven of us (only one couple) and the large house, with multiple rooms and beds really suited our needs. The big backyard, front lanai, and common rooms in the house, as well as the ample kitchen and large dining area provided many options for all our different group activities. The close proximity to Hawi town was convenient for us, and we enjoyed a quick walk to the Saturday farmer's market, along with quick access to Mahukona for early morning snorkel/swims. Kapa'a Beach Park is also a great place to watch sunset. As the trip leader of this group, I would easily recommend this house to any other group travel or workshop/retreat leaders, as well as families. The manager was helpful as we were making our arrangements to come, and also super-helpful while we were there. We loved the character and charm of this old Hawi plantation home and would definitely come again!"

  • Luxurious upcountry living on the Big Island

    "This spacious home has everything you would ever want. The house is practically brand new. It is beautifully furnished, has all the communication amenities. The setting is unparalleled. Imagine living in a house on a beautifully landscaped 3 acres in a country setting only 25 minutes from some of Hawaii's best beaches. This is the antithesis of what other people experience in Hawaii (crowded condo living with little privacy in a highly commercial resort setting). The Hawi location is perfect. The town is a center for artisans, and has several outstanding restaurants, all in a quaint country environment. The property is very much a private home, managed by a hands on local property manager who is very responsive. It is not managed by a large disinterested rental property company. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more, and can't wait to get back."

Hawi Travel Tips

Enjoyable Beach Getaways in Hawi Vacation Homes

While staying in Hawi lodging, you'll have privacy and luxury accommodations that many hotels can't offer. In Hawi vacation homes, you have the opportunity to wake up to views of the Pacific Ocean or lush tropical gardens. Hawi lodging includes many amenities as well, from oversized beds and satellite TV to wood-burning fireplaces and in-unit washers/dryers.

Vacationers in Hawaii can expect luxury while on their vacation, but tourists of the Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii can expect the best of the best. The Kohala Cost offers world-class accommodations, from fine dining options to Hawaii's best golf courses. And, with less than nine inches of rainfall per year, you're sure to see plenty of sunshine while on your trip. What's more, Hawi vacation homes, feature spacious floor plans and gourmet kitchens to ensure your stay is as relaxing as possible.

Vacation in Luxury in the Kohala Coast

While you're not enjoying Big Island vacation rentals, explore the luxurious options Kohala Coast has to offer. For instance, Kohala Coast is home to the Mauna Kea Golf Course, where golfers can soak in sweeping, panoramic views at nearly every hole. If you'd rather relax, check out Hapuna Beach State Park, the largest white-sand beach on the island that offers the perfect conditions for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing.

Educational Excursions in the Kohala Coast

The Kohala Coast also offers plenty of fun educational opportunities. For example, Kohala is home to the Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, which boasts hundreds of petroglyphs, or lava rock carving etched centuries before by Native Hawaiians. Although the meanings behind these petroglyphs are generally unknown, they are thought to represent significant events in the Hawaiians' lives.

The True Hawaiian Experience with Hawi Condos

Few things are as representative of their area as Hawi is to Hawaii. Recognized as the birthplace of the great Hawaiian king, Kamehameha I, Hawi today has a classic yet modern feel to it. The locals are few, but very friendly and eager to share their home and culture with you. Hawi condos offer a unique and private, yet exclusively Hawaiian way to experience the area.

The Spirit of Hawaii

Hawi is small on population, reporting less than 1000 residents at the last census, but big on attractions, friendliness, and history. You can partake in the lush natural beauty or visit the wealth of beaches, such as Halawa Beach Park. All of these are within ten minutes of Hawi house rentals. By renting a vacation rental in Hawi, you get a more private, homelike experience, and a bit more luxury as well. If you happen to be traveling in October, you can even catch the turnaround of the annual Ironman World Championship bicycle race. Whenever you visit, Hawi condos bring you a little closer to the authentic Hawaiian experience.

Making the Most of Your Trip

There are few places you can vacation that offer more things to do than Hawi. Among the

Kohala Coast vacation rentals, Hawi house rentals are particularly attractive because of the close proximity to everything in the area. You can walk a short distance into town to partake in the local food, or shop for things to prepare at our vacation home. Beaches are numerous and thriving. You'll certainly want to visit the Kohala Historical Sites State Monument, featuring a temple which is up to 1500 years old and the birthplace of Kamehameha I. For more modern fun, you have the amazing championship golf courses and a wealth of spas to make you feel wrapped in luxury.
