Located 830 ft. above sea level on the perennially sunny Kohala Coast and just ten minutes from some of the Big Island's most prized stretches of sand and championship golf holes, the 3,166 sq. ft Hale Pukana La Kohala (Kohala House of Sunshine) offers stylish comfort from corner to corner with all new furniture, carpets and appliances. While each of the four bedrooms has private AC, the master suite features a king bed, floor-to-ceiling windows, lanai access and a spa-style bathroom with his/her sinks, a soaking tub and a shower. The other two bedrooms feature a king and two twin singles respectively, which can be joined to form a king, while a another bedroom/office offers two Hawaiian punee beds (twin size), which double as day beds. The large, open-concept great room with a roomy lounge area and a large HDTV—one of three in the house—transitions into a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, duel-ovens and both table and bar-style eating.
The covered lanai sits just above a private pool and spa with new saltwater system, and features views that would elicit instant jealousy with a single social media post. Days spent soaking in the rays, frolicking in nearby azure waters and whale watching can transition into drinking in sunsets at dusk and superb stargazing at night.
Venturing down from the gated Kohala Ranch community—which goes from 300 to 3,000 ft. in elevation on the leeward slope of Kohala Mountain—means passing free-range cattle, grazing horses and coming upon a plethora of activities from snorkeling, boogie boarding, surfing, kayaking, golfing, hiking, deep sea fishing, equestrian trail rides or just keeping things simple, lounging on the golden sand and cashing in on some well-deserved rest and relaxation. As well, restaurants and cultural offerings abound just a few minutes away. And for a quick change of pace, venture inland just 20 minutes to the higher elevations of Waimea, Hawaii's most well-known cowboy country.
