Located in the downtown area, walking distance. Close to Rainbow Falls, Liliuokalani Park, Hilo Municipal Golf Course, Imiloa Astrology Center. A great launch to all tourist attractions. 30 miles to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Hale Kawehi is a very special kama'aina, very open Polynesian guest house in downtown Hilo featuring many Hawaiian museum/artifacts displayed throughout the house...... there are beautiful stained glass windows and panels and Koa furniture and cabinets. The setting is very private and tropical...a very special oasis in the center of Hilo and you will be coming to a very nice and quiet neighborhood. This guest house is large, 2,000 sq.ft., on a family estate, and very private. Host lives in a separate cottage. It is walking distance to the downtown area with the bus terminal, farmer's market, restaurants and shops. The Volcano district, Akaka Falls, Botanical Gardens, Imiloa, Liliuokalani Gardens are must see places. If you want to golf, there are 3 golf courses in the area. Hilo is, indeed, the sightseeing side of the Island. So come, relax and enjoy the enchanting Hale Kawehi.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1938

About the owner: Aloha. I am a kama'aina-indigenous Hawaiian, living in a tropical environment. My residence (hale) is ideally located in the heart of Hilo with lots of authentic Hawaiian artifacts and charm. My yard is lush with many tropicals, which I carefully planted. I was born and raised in Hilo, and this was my primary residence growing up so it is dear and special to me. I have lots of local knowledge and history of Hilo and its people. My grandfather was a senator and many of his senate bills that he introduced are still on the books today. I love traveling, hosting, cooking, entertaining, avid golfer, canoe paddler and hula. Hawaii has 12 months of outdoor weather. So come and enjoy my retreat. I believe staying here will be a very special experience reminiscent of old Hawaii. You will feel the mana....spiritual power.... E komo mai.....welcome.....
