Close your eyes. Its winter in Hawaii and the setting sun warms your face as cool plumeria breezes entwine your hair. Its happy hour on the Kohala Coast and the clink clink of wine glasses and family and friends’ laughter warms your soul, as the sun sinks low into the endless Pacific Ocean.

This is a special place, where you go to escape it all. Your Hawaii retreat, but also your investment property, a rare and successful vacation rental in Hawaii’s Big Island – just where you want to be. The sky is afire with pink and purple rays and whales jump and slap their tales not 300 yards away. You can hear the Humpback sounds and songs as they cozy up in the coves with their family for the evening to sleep, just beyond your lanai. Where the land meets the sea is where you will find “Whale Tale Hale”, a premier luxury vacation rental home for sale, located on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii. 

Big Island Vacation Rentals 

You likely already know that people come from all over the world to enjoy the beauty Hawaii has to offer. Savvy Buyers know that buying a luxury home in the islands and renting it out on a nightly basis offsets the cost of owning a second, third, (or even fourth home!) while reserving the right to use it for the certain times of the year that fits your schedule and lifestyle. Because rental rates are high due to the constant influx of tourists, homeowners in Hawaii who rent their homes out often find their overhead costs being heavily subsidised. It is not uncommon for homes to be rented out 11 months out of the year if this is what is desired. Before you purchase a home in Hawaii with the intention of renting it, its always important to educate yourself as to what, if any rules are in place limiting or restricting nightly and longer term vacation rentals. Owners are required to have an on island contact, and many hire a property/vacation rental manager, and expect to pay about 30% of gross rental income to ensure your rental is running smoothly, without any headaches, and that guests enjoy their stay time after time.

Location, Location, Location

The big Island contains 8 of 13 different climate zones in the world, each with unique ecosystems. These ecosystems range from tropical dry forest to subalpine grasslands, from snowy alpine deserts to brackish anchialine pools, and from subterranean lava tube systems with eyeless creatures to windswept coastal dunes. The diverse ecosystems and the active volcano attract the adventure lovers while the stunning white sandy beaches of the Kohala Coast draw in the beach goers and those looking to relax at one of the several five star resorts dotted along the coast. 

This home truly is in the perfect location just 40 minutes from Kona International airport along the famous Kohala Coast. The Kohala Coast is known for its world-class beaches, luxury resorts, and the cultural and archaeological gems nestled between its centuries-old lava fields. Kohala Waterfront is a private gated community on the Kohala Coastline with upscale homes and is located just minutes from award-winning beaches, resorts & golf! This exquisite home is located 10 minutes to the five-star Mauna Kea Resort, where you will find a championship golf course, an idyllic white sandy beach, and tennis courts set beside the crystal blue ocean. Hapuna Beach was just ranked the best beach in the world by Forbes magazine in 2021 and is just 10 minutes away from Whale Tale Hale. 

Attached to Hapuna Beach is the Westin Hapuna Beach, which just underwent a $46 million renovation and has luxury resort amenities. If you aren’t feeling like the beach, drive up the road 15-20 to the charming “paniolo” town of Waimea and immerse yourself in rich Hawaiian cowboy history, quaint art galleries, restaurants, schools and shopping. Waimea town is known for its electric green rolling hills, cooler temperatures and a plethora of picturesque local farms. In case this location doesn’t sound appealing enough yet- this home is also just a 20 minute drive to the Mauna Lani Auberge & shopping Center, King & Queens shops and the Waikoloa Beach Resort, all of which are offering even more world class dining, shopping, entertainment, & events. To say that the possibilities are endless is truly an understatement. Whether you want to get out on the water, go for a walk along the beach, or taste your way through the five star restaurants- you will never be short on opportunities. I think the diversity is what draws so many to the Big Island and sets it apart from the other islands. 

This is the perfect 2nd home to make memories with family and friends, or Full time Residence to retreat, relax, unwind, work from home and then head out to enjoy the best the Big Island has to offer.
