Owner info

Year Purchased: 1945

About the owner: Aloha! I'm Lisa. I'm Hawaii-born and raised (in Honolulu and Hilo,) I have lived here on this property for thirty years, raising four children with my husband, Christian. I love to share my culture, our Islands' stories and history with all. I cherish my morning coffee, friendships, food, gardening and yard work, and happy dogs!

Why the Owner Chose Hōlualoa, HI, USA:
Hale Akala is a special piece of Kona. Built in 1895, the cottage in the 1930s, by Manuel Silveira Goularte, a Portuguese rancher who raised his thirteen children here. It was utilized by cowboys of the neighboring Greenwell family's Palani Ranch, to re-supply and feed ranch-hands in the 1920 and 30s. It was abandoned and left to the elements before WWII, eventually being purchased by Christian's grandparents, William and Margaret of Honolulu, in 1945. Wanting to retire to Kona (where Margaret's great-grandparents Reverend Asa and Lucy Thurston--part of the company of first Christian missionaries to the Islands who arrived in Kailua-Kona (the seat of Hawaii's ruling Kamehameha reign) in 1820 and lived until the 1860s) they chose the cool uplands of Holualoa. Hale Akala has been in the family for four generations. A few cattle roam the surrounding acres of pasture and you'll hear an occasional bull bellowing from nearby Palani Ranch, in the quiet evening hours.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The spacious nature of the property, old established landscaping, dry-stacked rock walls (a ranching-heritage feature that you'll see all over Kona,) pathways, fruit trees, flower beds, along with the home's architectural appeal will make you feel and know that all is well in the world.
