Overview

Kohala Ranch House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Located 830 ft. above sea level on the perennially sunny Kohala Coast and just ten minutes from some of the Big Island's most prized stretches of sand and championship golf holes, the 3,166 sq. ft Hale Pukana La Kohala (Kohala House of Sunshine) offers stylish comfort from corner to corner with all new furniture, carpets and appliances. While each of the four bedrooms has private AC, the master suite features a king bed, floor-to-ceiling windows, lanai access and a spa-style bathroom with his/her sinks, a soaking tub and a shower. The other two bedrooms feature a king and two twin singles respectively, which can be joined to form a king, while a another bedroom/office offers two Hawaiian punee beds (twin size), which double as day beds. The large, open-concept great room with a roomy lounge area and a large HDTV—one of three in the house—transitions into a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, duel-ovens and both table and bar-style eating.

The covered lanai sits just above a private pool and spa with new saltwater system, and features views that would elicit instant jealousy with a single social media post. Days spent soaking in the rays, frolicking in nearby azure waters and whale watching can transition into drinking in sunsets at dusk and superb stargazing at night.

Venturing down from the gated Kohala Ranch community—which goes from 300 to 3,000 ft. in elevation on the leeward slope of Kohala Mountain—means passing free-range cattle, grazing horses and coming upon a plethora of activities from snorkeling, boogie boarding, surfing, kayaking, golfing, hiking, deep sea fishing, equestrian trail rides or just keeping things simple, lounging on the golden sand and cashing in on some well-deserved rest and relaxation. As well, restaurants and cultural offerings abound just a few minutes away. And for a quick change of pace, venture inland just 20 minutes to the higher elevations of Waimea, Hawaii's most well-known cowboy country.

Rates: Base rate is $450 per night for 2 guests. Each additional guest is $50 per night.

Holiday 12/18 to 1/4 base rate is $550 per night.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay in this beautiful home. It was the perfect retreat after a few hectic days of touring, snorkeling and volcano viewing, and we could hardly wait to return and enjoy the ocean views and amenities when we returned to the home each day. It was especially wonderful to enjoy the spa and pool while listening to song birds and catching quick glimpses of the speedy geckos throughout the lovely garden. And before each day’s activities began, nothing could compare with enjoying a cup of Kona coffee while whale watching from the lanai – absolutely the best way to start the day! We hope we can return for a longer stay in the near future.



Many thanks for helping to make our stay so enjoyable!

Reviewer Comments:

We just spent a wonderful week in this wonderful home that that beautifully furnished inside and out!! The artwork throughout the house was awesome. Every day I found a different picture that I hadn't noticed before. The lanai had to be our favorite spot, overlooking the ocean, beautiful landscaping and in the shade most of the day with the cool breezes. We enjoyed the hot tub every night. I counted 48 plumeria trees and most were in full bloom and the landscaping was lush. I can't say enough good things about the place. The wide screen TV's in three rooms were a real treat. We plan to return soon. Thank you!

Reviewer Comments:

This property has an excellent layout and amenities for a large family group (we had 7). It is beautifully decorated and well maintained. It is a bit of a drive from Kona for those that were scuba diving, but certainly do-able. We did not require a lot of assistance but the managers were very proactive in checking with us to make sure we had all we needed. The property provided just about everything we could have needed for most of the activities we could think of. It is a great location for exploring the west and north sides of the island. The distance to zip line on the east side was even reasonable. It is a bit far away from Volcano to really have enough time to explore Volcano National Park fully, though, since the limited roads around the island are usually two lanes and it can get quite foggy while driving at night. We spent a couple nights in Volcano and the rest here. It worked well.

This wa our first vacation with multiple families. The house was perfect as each family had their own space and we did not feel like we were ontop of each other. The house and pool were perfect and the location was far enough away to be quiet but close enough to access everything we needed. The Hawaii life agents were great and stayed in touch as things progresses.

Reviewer Comments:

I recently returned from a two week stay at this home in early December. It was my second time renting this particular home. I was extremely satisfied with the home, it's location, and the local Hawaii Life Property Manager, Nikki. The home is well appointed, clean, and offers peace, tranquility, and great views. (If you are looking for a property in the heart of the tourist district with lots of shopping, restaurants, and night life - like Kona or Waikoloa, this home is not a good option - however, if you like a dry, sunny climate, a private and peaceful home at a comfortable altitude, away from the crowds - this home is an excellent choice! The recently converted pool (from chlorine to salt water) was great, although it was a little too cold to use on a few of the days of our visit. Therefore, the only suggestion that I could possibly think of is maybe adding a solar pool heater in the future. Otherwise, it had everything we could ever want or need for our big island vacation. I'd like to personally thank the folks at Hawaii Life for making this a wonderful experience as well as the owners of the home who agreed to share it with us in the rental program. We are already scoping out dates for our trip back next year. Mahalo!

Fabulous home

  • 5 of 5

The vacation property is fabulous! The home has excellent style furnishings and a fantastic view. The property is very private - no other residences can been seen from the house. The owner provides beach chairs, towels and snorkel gear, etc. - as well as information about things to do and see on the island.
