About the Property

Home Near Beach, Ocean View, 3 Acres

Hale Kohola “The House of the Whale” is situated on 3 acres in an ideal location on the Kohala Coast, with panoramic views of the ocean and coastline. The master bedroom has a stunning ocean view that you can enjoy by just lifting your head off the pillow. If you are looking for a clean, quiet, spacious place to relax with friends or family, or a home base for day trips or ocean activities at nearby Kawaihae and area beaches, this is the one. Furthermore, the home is now solar powered and includes an A/C unit in the living room.
This 3 bedroom / 3 bath home sleeps six, including the “ohana” studio with futon sofabed, which is connected by walkway to the main house (perfect for a family member who craves their own space). The open floor plan allows privacy for the bedrooms, which are separated by the living areas.
The well-equipped kitchen is well planned for socializing and looking at the ocean while you prepare meals. Enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sun go down from the wrap-around lanai. The elusive “green flash” at sunset has been seen countless times from here. The dark night sky is incredible for gazing at the stars and planets. The quiet neighborhood is a perfect place for a morning jog or walk. There’s even a ukulele to play.
Hale Kohola is a rare find for privacy, beauty, natural quiet and Island Living. Guests are welcome to pick limes, tangerines or bananas on the property, (in season) and enjoy the fragrant plumeria and Tahitian gardenias. The landscaping focuses on species native to Hawaii, including a few endangered species.
During humpback whale season (November thru April) the spouts and breaches of these massive animals are visible from the house. The owners make their home in a small town in Alaska, spending part of the winter on the Big Island enjoying the local foods, culture and ocean and doing whale and dolphin research with the non-profit Hawai'i Marine Mammal Consortium (
Fully equipped; comfortable and clean, you will find Hale Kohola to be the perfect retreat for your dream vacation in Hawaii.
