About the Property

4 bedrooms and media room 6.5 baths, sleeps 10 WE HAVE A 7 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY.

Hale Nana Kohola (Whale Watch House) Located in the heart of Puako, offers a tropical retreat that showcases the best of Hawaii and is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family vacation. Escape to the sunny Kohala Coast on the Island of Hawaii. Hawaii's perfect year-round weather allows for your endless summer. Puako is one of the sunniest spots in all Hawaii. This tropical paradise meets the blue Pacific ocean. Hale Nana Kohola frames Haleakala, Maui's highest peak directly from the gorgeous lanais across the reflective HEATED infinity swimming pool.

You feel thoroughly at home, and completely at your best with every imaginable amenity. Designed to inspire, its beauty and connects you with the surrounding environment.
'Hale Nana Kohola' (the Whale watch House) is over 7000 sq ft under roof of architectural masterpiece on the beach in beautiful Puako. Several lanais to lounge around on when you're not at the beach. Kayaking and snorkeling only steps away in pristine clear coral reefs where Humpback whales come to breed.
We have a seven night minimum stay. The only reason it may show lesson seven nights is because the HomeAway calendar is very confusing.




This home offers 2 master suites, 2 guest bedrooms with their own baths, a media room with a bath, an open living, dining and gourmet kitchen area with cathedral ceilings that opens to a huge covered lanai adjacent to the 46' 360 degree infinity pool. Each bedroom, the living and media room, each have a large flat screen TV complete with an advanced audio system that can accept individual IPOD music selections. (Bring your IPOD!) Great care was taken with the landscape, creating a beautiful palm tree oasis on the ocean side. This gorgeously designed home is topped off with a 3rd story 'whale watch' retreat that offers 360 degree view

We have a 7 night minimum stay. Even though it shows 1 night on HomeAway and VRBO. The reason for this is it was confusing our guests the way the calendar is written.
This property is compliant with Hawaii State Legislation (HB2078) for vacation rental accommodation Hawaii Tax TA-003-387-3920-01 And general excise tax GE-003-387-3920-01

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Jane is an artist and a designer and Ron is a contractor. They both have teamed up over the last forty years to build homes with balance and flow that they and visitors can enjoy. It is like creating a feeling that is appealing to the senses. Over the years with Jane’s visions and Ron’s construction ability and help from various architects, several of their homes have been awarded; have been in charity events for architectural walks and in publications.

Why the Owner Chose Waimea, Hawaii County, HI, USA:
When we found Puako we felt we were home. It reminded us of old Hawaii, a sleepy little street running along the Beautiful Kahoka Coast. It was not our intent while building to use it as a vacation rental. It just happened and we have been very fortunate to share this paradise with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
No need to make arrangements and rent kayaks, stand up boards, swimming gear, beach chairs and other nominally not supplied amenities. Hale Nana Kohola Will save you hundreds of dollars in rental expenses and inconvenience supplying all necessary equipment. There are also many amenities in the house such as bicycle cruisers and of course high-speed Wi-Fi. There are many options of free movies and the sound system due out to play your favorite music. The swimming pool is a heated saltwater pool which normally does not irritate your eyes such as chlorinated pools. There is also a workout equipment on the upper floor to be able to watch the ocean and get some exercise.
