Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedroom with King Beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Big Island Vacation Houses presents: The Mango House. This lush, tropical oasis is located in beautiful North Kohala and offers an immersive Hawaiian experience removed from the tourist traps and bustle of other locales. In fact, it may have you believing you're a local.

A large variety of lush flora envelopes and divides the property, including hibiscus, birds of paradise, orchids, ferns, palms, an awesome banyan tree and fruit trees offering the freshest mangoes, papayas, bananas, and avocados that are yours for the picking. Savor oceanic, pastoral or jungle views as tropical birds sing, geckos chatter, the island breezes caress the trees, and the resonance of the tide rhythmically whispering in the distance.

The Mango House is a luxuriously designed 2,000 square foot house. The king sized master bedroom on the first floor accesses the 1,000 ft. of covered lanai decks. The upstairs loft bedroom with another king bed as well as a trundle bed, has its own half bathroom and upper level private lanai with spectacular ocean views. There is a fantastic fully equipped kitchen with state of the art appliances and an amazing 6ft Koa slab island. The master bath has a vessel sink and bali stone shower with soaking tub. There is also a separate private outdoor Bali Stone shower that is great after a day at the beach.

You are a short drive from the historic town of Kapaau, home of the original King Kamehameha I Statue. The charming downtown area has great art galleries and several wonderful restaurant as well as Kamehameha Park which has great tennis courts, a public swimming pool, a skate park and wonderful children playground. There is even a small public golf course you can play on for a nominal fee. A short drive in the other direction leads you Keokea Beach Park, which is a great spot for a picnic. Continue on and you come to the end of the road at the stunning Pololu Valley Overlook where you can enjoy a spectacular view hike down to the valley.

A few minutes past Kapaau is the colorful town of Hawi, known as North Kohala’s biggest little town. It is home to a weekly farmer’s market that we think is one of the best on the island. Be sure to sample local varieties of popular fruits, like apple bananas, strawberry papaya and in season, super sweet white pineapple! Hawi is also the bicycle turnaround for the annual Ironman World Championship held every October and has a great selection of unique shops and tasty restaurants. The world famous Bamboo Restaurant is consistently voted one of the best restaurants on the island with a great lineup of live music featuring award winning Hawaiian musicians. There are also wonderful alternative healing practices located here, with massage therapists , acupuncture specialists, naturopaths, herbalists, and a variety of yoga styles represented.

North Kohala is perfectly located to take advantage of many fun activities including scenic coastal rides on horseback or ATVs, the Kohala Zipline, Kayaking the Kohala Ditch and hiking trails galore. Head up the mountain road to Waimea and experience one of the best scenic drives in the US, with incredible views of Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and its observatories and a birds eye view of South Kohala with all its resorts and white sand beaches. The beaches in Kohala are the best on the island, including world famous Hapuna beach (Conde Nast rated it one of the top 10 beaches in the world), scenic Mauna Kea Beach, child friendly Spencer Beach Park and local favorite Beach 69.

Head down the coast towards South Kohala and you’ll discover many historical sites and parks along the coastline to enjoy. Lapakahi State Park is the site of an ancient fishing village and great for whale watching. The harbor town of Kawaihae is home to a variety of tour companies offering scuba, snorkeling and whale watching tours. There’s also a nice selection of shops and galleries along with great dinning and music at the Blue Dolphin Restaurant or popular Café Pesto.

A vacation to remember!!!

  • 5 of 5

Besides having great friends to share the experience, the Mango House is exactly as advertised and more. It was like nothing we had stayed in before. comfortable, removed from the hustle and bustle of tourist areas. Quiet, beautiful with great amenities; full kitchen, comfortable beds, plenty of space to relax in and outside the house. The outdoor shower is great for washing off after a day at the beach and just because it is there and has running warm water. The owner responded same day. The house was open and ready when we arrived. We would all stay there again.

Thanks Mango House and owners,

The Folmar's and the Galloway's

The perfect winter getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Mango House was nothing short of amazing. My wife and I were looking for an escape from city life and from the East coast winter cold, and this beautiful home provided just the break that we needed.

As you arrive at the Mango House you immediately realize that you are in entering your own private slice of paradise. The house sits on a spacious lot full of tropical flora. The sights and sounds of the rain forest surround you. We especially enjoyed being lulled to sleep by the ocean surf, wildlife and the wind rustling the palm fronds at night. The house itself is tastefully decorated and very well appointed. The beds were incredibly comfortable. The den and kitchen are open and inviting allowing for a perfect environment for preparing dinner and relaxing. All the appliances were in perfect working condition.

Our favorite feature by far of the Mango house were the lanais. The lanai on the first floor spans the entire perimeter of the house with comfortable lounges and tables. We had many a post-beach beverage on the downstairs porch. We also took full advantage of the grill on the first floor lanai. The upstairs lanai, while smaller provides the perfect spot to have a cup of coffee while watching the sun rise or to gaze at the plethora of stars at night.

Shortly after arriving your will fall into the rhythm of 'island life.' Be sure to take advantage of the local fruit offerings in the neighborhood. You will find fruit stands at the end of driveways; most accepting payment via the honor method. Be sure to also stop by the Kohala Coffee Mill.

It was truly an incredible experience. Mahalo Mango House!

The Big Island's North Kohala district is the discriminating travelers' best-kept secret. Experience 'Old Hawaii' in the charming historic towns of Hawi and Kapaau, with artists' shops, galleries, and delightful cafes. Historic sites - the famous statue of King Kamehameha, state parks, tropical gardens, Pololu Valley - with its majestic views, black sand beach, and scenic hiking trails. Or kick back, and enjoy some of the island's best beaches. Whale watching is seasonal (December through April), but the sea turtle sightings occur year-round.
