HGTV's Sunny New Show 'Renovation Aloha' Features Stunning Hawaiian Home Renovations

Hawaii's most rundown properties get a new life in HGTV's Renovation Aloha. HGTV has all the details.

January 17, 2024

Married home renovators Tristyn and Kamohai Kalama will transform dilapidated properties on the island of Oʻahu into beautiful family homes in HGTV's new series Renovation Aloha.

Premiering Tuesday, Feb. 20 at 9|8c, the eight-episode season will follow the couple, who were born and raised on the island, as they tackle substantial renos in one of the most expensive states in the country. Luckily, Tristyn and Kamohai can rely on help from their large family — which includes 87 first cousins (!), many of whom are in the construction industry.

“In the family we have contractors, cabinet makers and garbage collectors,” says Kamohai. “We have someone to help with every aspect of our business.”

What to Expect From 'Renovation Aloha'

In the first episode,Tristyn and Kamohai (who’ve seen it all when it comes to the brutal effects island life can have on houses) tour a rundown property in the desirable Kalihi Valley, located just north of Honolulu. After looking over the boarded-up building, which has trees growing through the roof, a rotting foundation, a termite infestation and heaping piles of trash inside, Tristyn and Kamohai will roll up their sleeves to turn the ruins into a homeowner’s paradise. Future episodes will feature the Kalamas at work in the family business renovating and selling some of the island’s most disastrous homes while working against factors like unforeseen costs, strict deadlines and unpredictable weather.

New episodes will be available on Max the same day and time as the show premieres on cable — Tuesday nights beginning Feb. 20 at 9|8c.
