Capture breathtaking sunsets, amazing ocean views, and maybe even a whale or two, at Whales Play at Kohala Waterfront. Facing west, on the northern tip of the Big Island, this luxurious three bedroom features a multi-level balcony, spacious interiors, and it’s just fifteen minutes from a couple of beautiful beaches. With two ocean-view master suites and a third queen bedroom, Kohala is ideal for a family beach vacation, couples retreat, or a romantic seaside honeymoon.
Thanks to wall-length openings and a spacious wrap-around balcony on adjacent sides of the living room, Kohala enjoys panoramic ocean views, plenty of natural sunlight, and fresh breeze throughout its interior. Pacific-Asian decor uses exotic woods, fine detailing, and designer furniture to create an atmosphere that is relaxing, interesting, and elegant. The kitchen is outfitted with state of the art stainless steel appliances, and a social breakfast bar links the functional working area with the rest of the open concept living room. And, the alfresco dining set on the main level balcony is the perfect setting for an unforgettable dinner soiree, with the endless Pacific to set the mood.
Whales Play at Kohala Waterfront is located within a gated community, with parking out front of the villa. The interior is equipped with Wi-Fi, television, a washer/dryer, and air conditioning. Outside, the multiple levels of the balcony are home to an infinity swimming pool, a hot tub, lanai, koi pond, and barbecue. Kohala’s open-air layout makes it easy to combine indoor and outdoor spaces, taking full advantage of the panoramic view and increasing the overall hosting space.
When you’re ready to head for the beach, you’ll find two of the Big Island’s best, Wailea and Hapuna, within a fifteen-minute drive. If there’s a golfer in your group, Waikoloa Village, Mauna Kea, and Hapuna are all challenging and scenic courses that are in the area. For a night on the town, you’ll want to head to the Kona coast. And, if you’d like to check out Hawaii’s most imposing natural wonder, the Volcanoes National Park is perfect for an afternoon trip with the family.
