The Whale/Ocean theme continues in the bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a King sized bed and flat screen TV with attached bathroom. The second bedroom is cozy and comfortable with a queen bed.

Midway between Hilo and Kona, Honu Hale is conveniently located close to waterfalls, beaches, zip lining, golfing, and hiking. A day trip to Volcano National park is a once in a life time adventure, and Waimea is a great starting point. Tour Parker Ranch located right in Waimea. It is the largest cattle ranch in the country. Waipio valley is just a 15 minute drive away and boasts stunning views, and a private beach bottom on the hike. Waimea is Paniolo country (Hawaiian cowboys), and is a perfect place to do some horseback riding, or if you are visiting during the 4th of July, the Parker Ranch Rodeo is a must!

About Robyn McKenzie

The McKenzie Family lives on Oahu, and makes frequent trips to the big island to visit family and attend surf contests with their 11 and 14 year old children. Robyn's parents Bill and Kathy are your hosts are available to answer any questions you may have, give recommendations or help in anyway you need.

Robyn McKenzie purchased this Townhome in 2015

Why Robyn McKenzie chose Kamuela

While visiting family on the Big Island we fell in love with Waimea. Waimea offers a slower paced lifestyle, and has excellent restaurants, great shopping, and is right in the middle of so many attractions on the island. We love the cooler weather, opposite of the stifling heat we experienced in Kona.

What makes this Townhome unique

Kohola Hale has everything you could need to settle in for a great vacation. If you enjoy the beach, you will appreciate the boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear, and cooler that are there to use during your stay. If you like to eat in, there is a great BBQ, and all the kitchen utensils you could need. We enjoy coming and staying here too! We have furnished the unit with everything we like to have when traveling, so you get to enjoy those things too.
