Kohala Ranch Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Don’t blow your entire vacation budget on a hotel. Stay at our new ocean-view junior suite apartment with its own private entrance, parking, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and “lanai” (patio) in the prestigious gated community of Kohala Ranch on the Big Island's north shore.

For a fraction of the price of a single hotel room in the nearby resorts of Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani, and Waikoloa Beach, you and your significant other can spread out in 500 square feet of luxury plus a spacious private lanai/patio.

Part of a sprawling, custom-built ranch estate covering 3 acres, your Hawaii home away from home comprises 500 square feet of luxury, including a full working kitchen, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, laundry room, and spacious private lanai with outdoor dining for 4 and gas BBQ.

Be part of the family with the owners, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 2 horses, or take advantage of the privacy of your personal apartment. Your choice. The owners and designers of this modern ranch estate, built in 2008, live fulltime on the island in the main house. Also on the property are a 2-bedroom apartment overlooking the sea and a 1-bedroom “ohana” (guest house).

This junior suite features a Tommy Bahamas bedroom with queen bed, 2-drawer nightstand and 3-drawer armoire, Thomasville desk work area, wicker side chair, 35-inch HD-Smart-TV/DVD, stereo system with iPod docking station, full kitchen with dining area (separated from the kitchen by a wall), shared laundry room, and outdoor “lanai” (patio balcony) with 2-person swing, gas BBQ, dining table, and chaise lounges, all with a view of the Pacific Ocean.

Available by the night, week, or month, this junior suite is one of the best deals on the Big Island. You are within 15 minutes of Hawi and Waimea, as well as the three beach resorts, making this the perfect location. At 1,900 feet elevation, it's also the perfect climate: it's always in the comfy 60s, 70s and 80s. (There are also lighted ceiling fans in each room for added comfort.)

Ask about our special volcano day tour to enjoy during your stay, including stops at a waterfall, candy/cookie factory, vanilla farm, and Hilo.

You can fly into Kona or Hilo, each about 45 minutes to an hour away, so you have more flight options.

A Perfect Stay

I can only rave about our experience at this VRBO! The property is beautiful. The studio is spotless. The view is magnificent. The kitchen is well stocked (SHARP knives! A first in all my years of renting vacation properties). The bed was comfortable. The lanai was huge. The dogs were friendly. If you are not a dog lover, never fear, you can close the gate to your lanai and keep them off. The horses were an added bonus. I bought carrots at the farmer's market and made new friends. We loved looking at the stars at night. They seemed to go on forever.

John and Deb were friendly and generous, but unobtrusive, hosts.

It was beautifully quiet. The Kohala Coast is my favorite part of the island. It's not far into Kawaihae to go to dinner (Cafe Pesto, Blue Dragon) or, during the day, hit the harbor or one of the beautiful nearby beaches. You can take the upper road out of Kohala Ranch and go horseback riding (Paniolo Riding Adventures, Dahana Ranch) or head into Waimea. Continue past Waimea and see the Waipio Valley (you can do that on horseback, too!). You are even close to Hawi. The location can't be beat.

If you are new to the Big Island, keep in mind that this end of the island isn't close to Kona. You are a good 35 minute drive from Kona, so if you are looking for a rental property in town, this isn't it. If you are looking for a beautiful property that is well maintained, convenient to activities, quiet, and sunny, this is your place.

Very Peaceful place

We stayed for two weeks on the ranch and felt very relaxed and at home. The property and location was beautiful in a high end ranch style subdivision yet with excellent value. The hosts Ded and John were very gracious and helpful. We had everything we needed and more. It was lovely to come home to the ranch after a day of exploring or being at the beach. You need to expect to drive when on the big island unless you stay in the resort area. We felt we got a much better feel of this island by staying on the ranch and exploring from there. We would come back in a heartbeat. The Big Island is our best Hawaii trip so far and we have been to this state five times. Thx so much for sharing your home John and Deb.

The junior suite is very comfortable for a couple. The Kohala Ranch location is a bit of a drive from the airport, but it offers beautiful views and relaxation in the quiet countryside. It's also an easy drive to great beaches.

The suite is really well appointed and clean, with everything you need for a great vacation: beach chairs and umbrella, well equipped kitchen/bbq, fast internet and spatious bathroom and sleeping area. The decor is very charming and the suite is really comfortable. John and Deborah are great hosts -- they were available to answer questions when needed, but gave us our space and privacy.

We had a great vacation and a wonderful stay.

The drive from the airport was longer than anticipated, but an interesting drive through the lava fields. The drive into Kohala Ranch to John and Deborah's BEAUTIFUL home took about 10 minutes.

The Jr. suite was VERY nicely laid out and had everything I needed, except a TV tray. Everything was as the pictures showed, and then some. Their two beautiful and friendly dogs were great and they never a were a bother. It is their house. I will recomend this beautiful place every chance I get and the rate was VERY GOOD. The weather was great too, with a couple of colder nights, but very comfortable.

THANK YOU JOHN AND DEBORAH

My husband and I have enjoyed several unbeliveable vacations on this Kohala Ranch. Together we have stayed in both the oceanview 2-bedroom apartment and the oceanview studio. The 2-bedroom is very comfortable and spacious, with a main great-room, with full kitchen and good sized bathroom. The studio apartment is perfectly appointed and ideal for 1-2 people. Both apartments have a private lanai overlooking the horse stables and awsome pamo views of the pacific ocean.

On my last visit I was very lucky to stay in the beautiful and private ohana. The friendly owner's attention to design, ammenities, comfort and Hawaiian detail was so peaceful. The private lanai was a real bonus, perfect for your morning coffee with papaya and the evening "pupu's" (appitizers) or dinner. The ohana even had a desk with wi-fi in case you need to keep up with the office (unfortunitely, I had to work durning this vacation).

The Kohala Ranch vacation is the true Hawaiin "up-country" experience and is one vacation you will want to return to soon after. BTW, the dogs are funny and extremely friendly, and you can spend hours wating the horses play.
