About Terri Dolan

We like to say that this house found us! Our family was quite content living a block from Kailua Beach on Oahu. We were on vacation and looking at the possibility of purchasing a few acres to someday build a cabin on for weekends and retirement. After we saw this spectacular property we returned to the Oahu and neither one of us could stop thinking about it. This property spoke to both of us - we adjusted our lives to make this dream come true. The rest is history...

Tim and Terri Dolan have been married 27 years and are living their dream. Tim spent 20 years in the Marine Corps flying anything they would give him the keys for.. They have two children, Chelsea & Eric. Tim loves to work outside, exercise, read, go to the beach and paddle. Terri enjoys gardening and organically growing some of the food eaten on the ranch, all the ranch animals, reading, decorating, cooking and generally spoiling our guests. On her day off you can usually find her at the beach.

Terri Dolan purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Terri Dolan chose Paauilo

The Paniolo Cottage is furnished in Hawaiian Cowboy decor. It's large living area has a 47' flatscreen television with premium satellite channels, a wood burning stove with ocean view bay windows and a dining area. The cottage is equipped with a full kitchen and everything you may need to feel at home. The separate bedroom boasts a king sized cowhide bed, equipped with a memory foam mattress and the finest linens available. There is also a private bath.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mountainside Gem with Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5
We loved our visit to the Hamakua Ranch. It was in a superb location and a place of real tranquility. Wonderful views of the ocean and surrounding countryside from our deck. The beds were comfortable and the property was immaculate! Terri made us feel so "at home". We would most definitely recommend this Bed and Breakfast.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5
I'm so glad I stayed at Hamakua Ranch House. The owners were perfect hosts. Terri made a wonderful breakfast everyday and helped us with any excursions for the day or allowed us to simply hang out on the large deck with cocktails and views of the ocean over the rolling hills. At night she would prepare a fire in the outdoor pit and have smores.
The location was fantastic. It is slightly secluded so the stars were amazing. I really feel like the location allowed me to see beyond the tourist side of Hawaii.
I also liked the set up of the beautiful house. There is a large dining area, living area and another seating area, but the bedrooms are down the hallway so it felt like there was some privacy. The bathrooms are attached to the rooms and have great showers! The bedrooms also have access to the deck.
There is a separate cabin type house. I don't remember how many it sleeps, but I walked through it. It was spacious and cute.
My entire experience was excellent. We used the free WiFi and even did one load of laundry. Terri asked for suggestions for improvement, but I had nothing to say. She really cares about the comfort of each guest and puts a lot of effort into your stay.

Our Hamakua Ranch visit.

  • 5 of 5
We loved our visit to the Hamakua Ranch. It was in such a special location on the beautiful island of Hawaii. The Ranch is in such a place of tranquility. By day, warm with views of the ocean. By night, sitting by a campfire with a view of beautiful Mauna Kea. The Ranch was decorated with such taste each detail just perfect. The beds were comfortable and the property was immaculate! The owners made us feel so "at home" in their home. The food was wonderful. And we would most definitely reccommend this Bed and Breakfast to all of our friends. And of course we would love to stay there again!

visitor from Oahu

I visited in June & stayed in the Honu Suite - it was absolutely wonderful! I slept like a baby in the most comfortable bed ever & awoke each morning to crisp cool air with the fabulous warm Hawaiian sunshine not far behind!

This was a well-needed vacation in a spectacular country setting where I could truly relax & get away from it all - ahhhh... Terri was the ultimate host from start to finish treating me more as a part of the family than a visitor from another island.

There was no shortage of things to do as I ventured out to local towns & interesting scenic spots - each was lots of fun. But I was happiest just taking in the beauty & enjoying the freedom of hanging out at the ranch.

I highly recommend this as the ultimate destination for a perfect relaxing vacation on the Big Island. I'm really looking forward to the next time I can go - I just hope she has an opening then!

Thanksgiving at the Ranch House

  • 5 of 5
Accommodations were WONDERFUL! A fabulous get away with beautiful scenery from every advantage point. Sitting under the stars at night by the fire pit is not to be missed! Host and hostesses made you feel like family. Competitive prices for the accommodations and what you get for the money spent is well worth it! We will for sure be back!

The Big island is often referred to as a 'miniature continent' and is an excellent choice for a vacation destination. This island has the only active volcano in Hawaii, snow capped mountains, tropical rain forests, barren deserts, waterfalls, valleys, and beautiful beaches...

We are nestled at 3500 ft elevation on the beautiful Hamakua Coast. The Hamakua Ranch House sits on 30 incredibly serene acres with abundant wildlife including wild turkey, pheasant, and other native birds.

The view is absolutely spectacular from anywhere on this remarkable property. From the front porch you can see the beautiful summit of Mauna Kea (you can see snow on the peak at times). On the back decks, you can sun, read, have cocktails or just relax as you look out across rolling pasture with koa and ohia trees and see all the way down to the ocean; it is hard to tell where the sky and ocean meet. You can also see Haleakala on Maui when the conditions are right.

The Hamakua Ranch House is conveniently located with unlimited choices of things to see and do on the Big Island. Whether you choose to visit historic Honokaa, see the breathtaking views of Waipio Valley, or head west through historic Waimea to the Kona Coast for the beautiful beaches, travel south to see magical waterfalls, or visit Kilauea volcano, you can do it all from this location. Explore the Big Island during the day, and return to heaven each night to relax and enjoy true peace and quiet.

On clear nights, you will feel like you can touch the stars as you sit on your own deck or gather with us and other guests around the fire pit. This is beyond doubt a getaway place that you will remember and want to return to again and again…
