Kohala Estates

Kohala Estates House Rentals

Along the coast of North Kohala, there’s a place with perfect ocean views, incredible winter whale watching, and plenty of sun, year-round. Welcome to Kohala Estates! If you choose one of our Kohala Hi vacation rentals here, you’ll relax in luxury and enjoy the natural beauty of the scenic Kohala Coast.

Kohala Estates is a luxury subdivision located a few miles north of Kawaihae harbor along the Kohala Coast. This rugged stretch of coastline, 18 miles between Kawaihae and Hāwī, is very beautiful, but has no stops or services. If you stay in Kohala Estates, know that you will need to drive to Waimea or Waikoloa for your nearest grocery shopping! You will, however, have a few great restaurants to choose from in Kawaihae itself.

When you hear “coastline,” you might expect “beach”: keep in mind that the North Kohala Coast is not known for beaches. Your best beach options are just south of Kawaihae, at Hāpuna and Mauna Kea Resort. There are a few interesting beach parks near Kohala Estates, but not necessarily any sand: Lapakahi State Historical Park is a partially restored ancient fishing village with a self-guided interpretive trail, and Mahukona is an old harbor that’s a popular spot for fishing and snorkeling (watch out for rusty old metal in the ruins here).

At the north tip of the island are the artsy little twin towns of Hāwī and Kapaʻau: spend an enjoyable afternoon exploring the shops and delicious locally-grown cuisine of the restaurants here, or drive up to the end of the road and take in the amazing view from Pololū Valley Lookout.

Kohala Estates is a great home base for a vacation full of luxury and sunshine here on the Kohala Coast! So what are you waiting for? Book one of our vacation rentals on the Kohala Coast and get started planning your vacation today!
