While the sights and sounds of Christmas abound throughout the islands — from entertainment on sandy beaches and casual dining venues to Santa arriving by canoe and gala parties at luxury resorts lining the Kona/Kohala Coast — home entertaining remains the most favored holiday fete among island residents.
Hospitality and generosity are hallmarks of the Hawaiian culture and perhaps this is no more evident than during the holiday season. It’s in that spirit that I’m sharing a handful of my current residential listings that seem to have been purpose-built for entertaining family and friends during festive and all year round. Enjoy, and happy holidays to you and your family!
