About Chris Wej
We fell in love with this magical property on top of the hill and decided to build a unique dream house for our retirement. We are too young to retire so decided to share it with you and your family as a vacation rental.
Chris Wej purchased this House in 1997

Journey of Discovery
Inhale the view and fresh air.
Gentle. Peaceful. Perfect. Kohala Lodge is a lovely, relaxing place to use as a home base while visiting the Big Island and also a wonderful place to simply hang out and do very little. The views are lovely and the farm animals are lots of fun for young and old alike. It was easy to communicate with Chris and his family, and everything was as expected or even better. There was plenty of hot water for showering after active days hiking or at the beach, and all of the sleeping spaces and shared spaces were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed (though you may want a brief tutorial on how to operate the gas stove and multifunctional oven if not familiar with one). We appreciated the advice to stock up on groceries prior to arriving. It is so nice at the lodge, that we loved eating almost all of our dinners there. Breakfast on the front porch was also a wonderful treat many mornings. If/when we are lucky enough to make a return trip, we will definitely stay at Kohala Lodge again.
This is a beautiful property in an idyllic setting and perfectly situated for exploring this part of the Big Island. We loved the architecture, the kitchen, and the porch!!! We almost cancelled our plans just to spend the day on the porch. The king sized bed downstairs (with en-suite) and the two queen sized beds (upstairs) were comfortable. Lots of extra blankets were provided as was firewood for the fireplace. The kitchen is a pleasure to cook and eat in. This was a wonderful last stop on our Island vacation.
Calm and comfortable home
A wonderful property offering a window into a bygone era of Hawaii’s plantation history. Incredible views and restorative calm. Owner is a wellspring if assistance and information as well as entertaining stories about the region
Relaxation in the hills of North Kohala
We spent 6 nights at this wonderful property, which lived up to, and exceeded, our expectations from the photos and description. Whilst the property itself is a great place to spend time, enjoying the views, wildlife, BBQ, sunset on the veranda and super-clean and comfy, homely interior, it was also a great base to easily get out and explore the north and west coasts during the daytime.
Highly recommended... and Chris was a great host, too!
