About the Property
Spacious 816 Sf, One Bedroom, Bath, Living Room, Study, Kitchen & 34 Ft Veranda.
Enjoy your morning complimentary Kona blend coffee on the veranda while as many as 20 species of birds greet you with their songs. Sip your favorite wine on the terrace under the venerable whispering ironwood trees. Don’t be surprised if the curious Parker Ranch cattle come right up to the fence and stare at you! Or if the wild tom turkey leads his flock across the open pasture. Lei O Kohala is located where the rainy part of North Kohala ends, and the arid landscape begins. This climate transition frequently gives birth to incredibly gorgeous rainbows! And blessed are those late afternoons as the setting sun paints the sky with hues of gold, pink, orange and red. On a clear new moon night, step outside, look up and marvel at nature’s incomparable grand display of the Milky Way spreading across the star lit sky. Lei O Kohala is a place of beauty, peace and inspiration.
The guest suite is a spacious 816 sf, one bedroom, one bath, living room, study with full kitchen. It is a totally separate unit with its own private entrance. It is so self-contained that you wouldn't think the guest suite was part of the main house. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a bay window dining area. Step through the double French doors and relax on the 34 feet veranda with views of the ocean and Maui. The living room is furnished with heirloom heritage koa furniture and a pune’e (day bed) for lounging. The bedroom is appointed with a luxury Stearns & Foster pillow top queen bed and accented with Hawaiian design quilted pillows. Need internet connectivity? Sit at the Tommy Bahama desk in the study and connect to the free wi-fi or hard wire. 40” flat screen TV. Full range 2.1 speaker system to plug into your iPod. Choice Hawaiian CDs are available for your listening pleasure as are a cooler, beach towels, mats and sand chairs for your beach outings.
Since its recent start up in April 2013, Kohala Guest Suite has received wonderful guest reviews, all with 5 star ratings. Come, stay at Kohala Guest Suite and experience the Hawaiian Hospitality as it is meant to be!

About the owner: Your host, Mel, was born and raised in North Kohala. As a vacation rental operator in North Kohala, he is one of an elite few who can make that claim. He learned the heart of hospitality from his parents who immigrated from the Philippines. Later he learned the business of hospitality at Cornell University. After a lifelong hotel career which took him to San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Puerto Rico, Boston, Anchorage, Kauai and Hawaii Island, Mel returns to the essence of hospitality as originally learned from his parents . . . giving from the heart.
Why the Owner Chose Hawi, HI, USA:
After living in many parts of the country, Mel chose to return to his birthplace. It’s often spoken that one chooses to go to Kohala; Kohala is a destination. Unlike other locales, Kohala is set apart from the Mamalahoa Highway which encircles Hawaii Island. The isolated nothern geographical location and its warm residents give Kohala its unique sense of community unlike any other.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Lei O Kohala is about our ancestors, the melding of cultures, and the sacredness of the land. It’s about how we love and respect those around us and the environment we live in. Mel embraces these spiritual ideals and wants his guests to experience the Art of Hospitality in the old Hawaiian style and grace. He carefully crafted Lei O Kohala Vacation Rental so his guests will feel the peace, serenity and love from this special place in Puuepa.
