One of the most impressive luxury estates on the Big Island’s Kohala Coast will be featured on national television in an upcoming episode of HGTV’s Million Dollar Rooms.

According to network officials, the show is scheduled to air Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 11 p.m., although the airing date is subject to change.

The 1.3-acre property is named Hale Ku Mana or “House of Spiritual Strength,” and features 10,056 square feet of opulent living space with 5 bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths and an office in the master suite.

The property is currently on the market for $13.5 million and listed exclusively by Beverly Molfino, R(S) of Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers.

It’s the first time a home on the Big Island is being featured on the television program this season.

The property caught the attention of the show’s producers with its striking indoor-outdoor living spaces, six ponds, and walkways featuring rare natural materials.

The HGTV team spent the day filming inside and outside the home, although they focused on the master suite and bath, which was recently featured in Forbes Magazine as one of the most amazing master bathrooms in the country.


The home’s designer/builder, CF Turley, was interviewed on camera about the high-quality finishes used throughout the home.


The HGTV crew was also very interested in the native Hawaiian plants featured in the indoor/outdoor bathrooms and the rest of the property.

More than 30 native Hawaiian and endangered plants are integrated into the landscape of the property.

Several plants are Kumulipo plants, meaning they have significant importance in Hawaiian culture and are described in detail in the Hawaiian creation chant.
