In 1998, I had the enjoyable experience of finding a home for a wonderful family, originally from the midwest, but most recently from the Island of Molokai…as they recently reminded me, we first viewed a number of homes in the community of Waimea, close to Hawaii Preparatory Academy, where their young boys would be entering school.
Their home on Molokai was located on the beachfront and as we toured Waimea, they kept talking about where to place the pool. Of course, I suggested to them that Waimea, at about the 2800 foot elevation is not the ideal temperature for most people’s morning dip. The expression on their faces told me this family needed to see Kohala Ranch.
Have you ever driven the magnificent Kohala Coast road beyond the heeau? Beyond the harbor? …and thought if only I could wake to this pristine site and spend my mornings entertained by families of whales? Who are the fortunate few who have found their piece of Hawaii, perched on the slopes of the Kohala Mt. range, overlooking the entire Kona-Kohala Coast in the Kohala Ranch.? Families who have a lifestyle to be envied with privacy and open space,close to the beach and the golf course, a community where everyone has moved to enjoy Hawaii and all it has to offer from sunset to sunrise. Even more fortunate are the families, who have created memories and made this house a home.
Some locations are locations, but this home is the perfect site to take full advantage of it’s premier position on the Kohala Coast, no matter where you sit there are near views of lush landscaping and rolling lawns and far views of ocean and volcanoes, great expanses and great shelter. Of course I have hardly described this gracious Kohala estate with it private master wing, where you can escape from the world. Or the kids wing and command central. The kitchen and family room where everyone meets. Plus the great impressive living room and dining room. That’s just inside! Outside, endless patios, perfect size pool for every age and of course a hot-tub. Now, if you are inclined to keep horses on your Kohala Ranch there is even a barn.
I have left out a lot but if I tell you everything I will ruin the adventure, the discovery and the find, and I would never want to take that experience away from anyone. Landing is always the best.
