This solar powered single family home is located on the coast in the foothills of hawaii island’s oldest volcano, kohala mountain, with views of the coastline and ocean. This economical home is conveniently located in the eclectic neighborhood of kawaihae village. Set along the kawaihae road, hale lani is a five-minute drive from some of the highest-rated beaches in the world: mauna kea, hapuna beach state park and waialea bay. Equally close are restaurants ranging from cafe pesto, seafood grill, and to the blue dragon, known for prize-winning fine dining in an outdoor setting with top-rated live entertainment. A scenic drive from kawaihae harbor up the coast takes you to the charming town of hawi, with prime whale viewing along the way during the winter months. The interesting and beautiful town of waimea is just 15 minutes drive up the mountain where guests enjoy the many shopping and sightseeing options.

Best beaches – mauna kea & hapuna
The houses in kawaihae village were originally built and owned by the mauna kea hotel for its employees. Great place to have a sunset drink overlooking the ocean.
Best close places to eat – kawaihae harbor, right turn, opposite the way you go to the airport. There is a pupu bar on the right, overlooking the harbor with fantastic food, the blue dragon – amazing, and café pesto has great pizza. The kings and queens shops at wakoloa also have upscale restaurants and nice shops, and sometimes outdoor concerts. There is also a grocery store.
If you have a chance to drive to hawaii volcanoes national park, it is fascinating. The big island has 11 different climate zones, and you see just about all of them on the drive to volcano. Take jackets because it can be cold and rainy.
The mauna lani hotel, down the road from mauna kea, has a brunch every day in a beautiful garden area. The land where it is built is said to be one of the great centers of natural healing in the world. The have a top spa there and different kinds of massages.
The hilton waikoloa is worth checking out for its tremendous asian art collection. There are fine (and expensive) restaurants there and its fun to take the free boats around the place. It has a little wedding chapel and a garden with real flamingos. Great place for a wedding because there’s something for everyone in the family to do if you’re staying there.
For gifts, the wal mart in kona has great gifts and clothes. A lot of the clothes are made locally and are the same quality as the macy’s up the road. Not your typical wal mart.
In case of emergency, the north hawaii hospital in waimea is great. Waimea is also called kamuela, and there are nice shops and galleries there. Gallery of great things is worth going to, and there are good places to eat (will be listed in brochures). The town has two climate zones – wet side and dry side and is often rainy and windy. There are farmers markets with very fresh produce and beautiful local flowers.
Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: The house felt like a refuge the moment i saw it, and the young owner had put in many loving touches, like rock walls and patios, and a fragrant cedar walk-in closet. It took many years to afford the upgrades and artistic touches, and each has been a labor of love for me, as well. My uncle was a volcanologist, and chose the location of kawaihae village because it was above tsunami danger, and out of the way of thousands of years of lava flows. It is a safe perch, yet close enough to the ocean to see a humpback whale breach from the yard. You can lie in a chaise at night and see a brilliant night sky, the way it looked before city lights clouded the atmosphere. In the morning, you can be at a pristine beach where the hotel guests pay upwards of $700 a night, and the houses cost millions - the drive down the hill takes a couple of minutes! It is a great, time-saving location, and even the paramedic's station is less than 5 miles away. The house has lent itself to green considerations - re-purposing things like an antique cabinet into the bar, recycling wood during renovations, and a move to solar power. We try to care naturally for the land and have been rewarded by native birds (our birder guests counted 34 species!) and butterflies. We hope you feel the joyful and healing nature of this house we call hali lani, 'house of heaven'. The unique benefits at this house: The location of this house means that you can drive to the beach on a moment's notice. We often go first thing in the morning, and again to watch the sunset, or the whales in winter. We are also spoiled with the closeness of world-class restaurants (yes, you can go in shorts and aloha shirts!), and fantastic shopping. I was able to buy the house next door, and with two houses side by side, it is extremely convenient for families or groups.
Why the Owner Chose Waimea, Hawaii County, HI, USA:
We feel that this has become the finest home in village. Beautiful inside and out. The new Pelican water filtration system truly makes a difference in the taste of the water and makes it unnecessary to purchase of bottled water. The home is furnished with interesting decor which we have obtained from various parts of the world. The back patio and well kept lawn area is a great place for relaxation and has a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean and Kohala Coastline.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Solar powered with central air conditioning. New state of the art Pelican water filtration system attached to the incoming main water supply. Master Suite has a large wood lined walk-in closet and completely remodeled master bath area with walk-in shower. The kitchen is also new with all the latest features. Bar top hand made from re-purposed 200 year old Chinese Elm.
