About the Property
AC HOME WITH OCEAN VIEWS
In the foothills of Hawaii Island’s oldest volcano—Kohala Mountain—with views of the coastline and ocean, this economical house is conveniently located in the eclectic neighborhood of Kawaihae Village. Set along the Kawaihae Road, Hale Ohia 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 Anuenue Shave Ice and locally sourced Kohala Burger and Taco 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. Right next door is Hale Lani, owned by the same family, so this home will appeal to a larger group or extended family as well as a single family. State of Hawaii GE/TA tax numbers W 01815576-01

Year Purchased: 1996
About: I am a military widow with six kids. When my husband was killed on a mission, we needed a place to heal and begin our lives anew. We took a family vote, and all wanted to move to Big Island, where our cousins lived. I grew up in Yosemite National Park, and Hawaii Island
Why Waimea, Hawaii County, HI, USA:
Our enchanting little Village was originally built to house employees of the world-famous Mauna Kea Hotel. Shortly after achieving statehood, Hawaii's Governor William Quinn invited Laurence S. Rockefeller to visit Big Island and look for sites for potential resorts. Quinn knew that Rockefeller was a conservationist, and believed that buildings should meld gently into natural surroundings, and enhance, not harm, the area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Mr. Rockefeller went for a swim at Kauna'oa Beach (where you can swim after a 5 minute drive from this house), and fell in love with the gentle water and majestic view of the volcano called Mauna Kea. The beautiful hotel followed, and our Village after that, to house employees. Some of our neighbors still work there, and many of us enjoy a drink at the hotel, dinner, or lunch at the golf course. And the beach is open to the public and as pristine as it was when Mr. Rockefeller fell in love with it! We are pleased to honor the spirit of conservation of the ai'na (land) and our nexus to the magnificent Mauna Kea Hotel. We are also honored to share our home with treasured guests, and hope you enjoy all of the wonders and amenities that are just a short drive away.'
