Welcome to our newly-remodeled home on 5 acres in Kohala Ranch, a gated community on the sunny Kohala Coast. Kohala Ranch is a large property with three main areas: Heathers; Meadows; and Summit. Our house is located in the Heathers, the area with the lowest elevation on one of the closest streets to the ocean. The Heathers is the warmest and sunniest area of Kohala Ranch. Our home is located on the second street up from the coast road entrance gate. We have panoramic ocean views to watch whales and sunsets.
Reviews from prior guests:
We loved this house - opening up all the french doors & enjoying the breeze! We were so comfortable here & we totally relaxed. The whale watching was fabulous! Your home is truly lovely & it will be fun to see the fruits mature over the next couple of years. We used some basil for many different meals. Thank you for having a few games, movies & the binoculars. You have the perfect place for star gazing & viewing Mauna Kea and the rainbows. We replaced your 2 boogie boards as they were getting weak across the middle. Wonderful time had by all! Mahalo.
Thank you for a wonderful home base for a short little trip to Hawaii. I love your interior decorating and very much appreciated how clean everything was. It was the perfect place to inspire my landscaping projects back home. Walks around Kohala, games of chess, scrabble and dutch blitz, biking, movies, boogie-boarding, shopping and lots of eating...and always a great place to 'come home to'.

We have absolutely loved our week at your incredible home! It is so comfortable and relaxing! We spend hours by the pool and at the beaches, saw many whales, cooked in, ate out, played chess and all slept great! We even watched Ferris Buehler - a family favorite! Thanks for all you have done to create this awesome place - can't wait to come back!

We are Dave and Sue. We live in the Seattle area but escape to Hawaii whenever we can. We have vacationed in Hawaii for the last 20 years and have successfully rented out a condo in Waikoloa Beach Resort (see the reviews posted by previous guests to our condo) for the past four years. We purchased our Hawaiian dream home in September 2013. We love bringing our family and friends to the Big Island and hope that you will fall in love with the diverse landscape and climate of the Big Island.
Sue purchased this house in 2013
We chose our home in the Heathers of Kohala Ranch for the beautiful sunset views and dry, sunny weather. Enjoy nearby scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, golf, shopping, and dining. Enjoy whale watching and beautiful ocean views from our lanai. We have all new paint, carpet, furniture, appliances and tropical landscaping.
We bought our home in September 2013 and have remodeled extensively. Our home is located in the Heathers, which is the area closest to the ocean with spectacular views and warm, sunny weather! Help yourself to fresh tropical fruit and herbs growing on our property. Our managers live on the Big Island and available for anything you may need during your stay.
Perfectly situated in Kohala Ranch, an absolutely lovely home with dreamy ocean views from every room. Soft breezes throughout this beautifully laid out property, all expected amenities and more than enough room for everyone, inside and out. We enjoyed ourselves for a week and truly did not want to leave. The property owner was a pleasure to work with and the property manager was quite accommodating. The pictures of this villa are great but don't do the place any justice. You must come and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot recommend it enough. Nothing but the highest praise for this property ! Our rental and conversations with the owners was quick and professional, making everything as easy as possible.
The property was exactly as shown and was spotless upon our arrival. Everything about this property is FIRST CLASS ! This home and grounds exceeded our expectations. It is spacious, well decorated and had everything you would ever needed and more. It was luxurious, but incredibly comfortable. We enjoyed many morning cups of coffee, breakfast, dinner and evening glasses of wine on the ocean view lanai. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained. Absolutely peaceful and beautiful.
We enjoyed the well designed pool area that overlooks the ocean. The owners also provided a number of great recommendations for nearby activities, grocery shopping facilities, directions and restaurants.The location is perfect with amazing beaches just short drives away or a beautiful place to just stay and relax. We can't wait to go back!
This home has definitely move it to the top of our list for future visits. Mahalo for opening up your beautiful property to us !!!!!! We can't say enough good things about our experience !!!
This house was perfect and did not disappoint us at all. When we drove up, we found ourselves in awe of the incredible vista and the villa feel. When we walked in, we were truly overwhelmed by how pretty the center courtyard was and the house itself. There was so much to take in. Walking into the home, we were drawn immediately to the backyard where the large pool was and that VIEW! High end finishes throughout the home and an easy and highly functional kitchen. Everything was where we needed it to be. The master suite was large and the bath was perfect for my husband and I. Our son and his fiance stayed in the other bedroom and had all the privacy in the world. The house is set up perfectly for privacy. We had private massage and set it up in the master bedroom and it was quiet with plenty of room. Great way to start our vacation! The house had everything we needed except for one item which we bought and left at the house for the next guest (and that was a shot glass). Overall, we found this house had easy access to some great restaurants and it was close to Hapuna Beach which was fabulous. Tina was very responsive for all of our needs and took great care of us. Sunset views in the backyard were amazing. Easy dining outside. The pool is also plenty big enough. We go quite a bit of exercise in it. Well cared for property. My only comment is there are a lot of steps up and down in the house so it took us a little bit of time to get used to them. Older people or small children might have a little harder time getting used to all of the up and down. But the house is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
This house was perfect. Private backyard, awesome view, well stocked and maintained house. We held our small, private wedding in the backyard and it was a perfect backdrop for the ceremony. We stayed 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. Sunsets were beautiful, the pool was relaxing and lots of stuff to do nearby. One of the best homes we have ever rented and we will definitely be back!
Wonderful, comfortable house in a great private setting. Loved the newly refinished pool. Appreciated the AC in the bedrooms- no need for it elsewhere. The description and photos are very accurate. Whale watching in season should be spectacular. Sunsets are wonderful. We've stayed in the ranch before and at the resorts, and have high standards; this is our favorite.
Nicely remodeled and very nicely furnished with everything one could need. An excellent location, convenient to Havi, Waimea, best island beaches as well as close to the resorts if desired. Not to mention the fish store at Kawaihae!
Owner and team very responsive and easy to work with.
We plan to visit again.
We have enjoyed staying at many VRBO homes on Hawaii but love the Kohala area.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is beautifully furnished and with views over the ocean it doesn't get any better. There are many local places to visit on the Island as well as some really good restaurants.
Although we like to sightseeing we found the house so relaxing and peaceful we stayed around the wonderful pool more than normal.
The house is furnished to a high standard with everything you need for the perfect vacation.
The booking process was easily managed by Dave and Sue and they were very helpful and answered all our questions promptly.
I would highly recommend this house and can't wait to come back next year.
