Long Term Rentals while Building your home

pattie-resize.JPGAloha on this wonderful day here on the Big Island. The Trade Winds have returned so the temperature has taken a turn for the best. This time of year tends to be a little slower than the high seasons. We always run a special for the months of September 1st to November 15th where if you stay for 6 nights you get the 7th night free. That can really add up and it also allows you to spend the extra money on activities like diving in Hawaii.

Lokahi (harmony,unity) is a way of life here. Things seem to have a certain flow here on the Big Island. You ask for something that morning and by the afternoon someone shows up with exactly what you need. We are always amazed at how that works here.

We have a few long term rentals available and with the upcoming Whale Watching season approaching these two homes have it all.

One of the homes is located in Kohala Ranch at around the 600 ft. level . Kohala Ranch is a gated community where this 3 bedroom 2 bath home resides. It has one of the best views of the Milky Way and truly one of the greatest sunset sites on the northern Kohala Coastline.
The owner of this house hopes to rent for a 2 year period.

The other multi million dollar home is located in Kohala Waterfront on the Gold Coast. It is truly an amazing view of the Humpback whales and the spinner dolphins that frequent that water way. With amazing views of the coastline and centrally located near Kawaihae this house offers all the modern ammenities.

Building your home on the island can take some time, the best is when you can be close to check on your project and enjoy the area while you wait for completion. If you need help finding a home for long or short term Hawaii Vacation Rentals Inc. is the place to start your search.
