New Years Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is more spectacular than the photos. Four couples stayed over NY week for a well deserved vacation. We played 3 rounds of golf at various locations which were easy to get to. The beautiful house with all the amenities - it was hard for us to leave the property. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets every evening sitting on the patio. Best to stock up on your groceries before you can sit back and enjoy the home.

Rea and Audrey were easy to work with and very responsive to our questions and requests. Thank you for providing us with a fantastic vacation.

We look forward to returning soon.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

A perfect getaway! Being on top of the world with amazing views of the ocean and the mountains, surrounded by so much natural beauty - love Kohala Ranch. The very spacious villa is so well-kept and stocked. Great pool, lawn and tennis court. Caretaker is a treasure too. Can't wait to come back.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo, Rea for sharing your beautiful home with us. Rea was great to work with from the start, and was happy to accommodate our group. We enjoyed every part of this home...the large rooms each with it's own bath and shower provided enough privacy for each part of our parties to retreat to. The views are absolutely breathtaking! We spent most of our days by the pool and jacuzzi overlooking the stunning ocean and mountain views. We loved the sauna AND steam room...what a treat! And don't forget to spend some time down at the tennis courts! We also spent many hours in the kitchen sharing in preparing meals and chit-chatting. The home is well-equipped with everything you could need, especially lots and lots of towels for those nice long, loungy days enjoying the pool! We never wanted to leave...however, driving down to enjoy the beaches and ice shave in the Blue Dragon parking lot in Kawaihae is a MUST! Audrey was an absolute gem to work with! We didn't want to leave, and hope to return to soon.

A Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home for an extended family vacation on the Big Island after our first choice closer to Kona fell through; turns out to have been for the best as this home was fantastic and provided an excellent base for touring the island and was a peaceful, gorgeous location for just relaxing and enjoying the sunsets and amenities of the home. Our stay was not without some challenges, the first involved an invasion of mice owing to unusual amounts of rain for the time of year; being intended for open-air living (i.e. doors and windows always open, no A/C), it was tough to keep the little friends out of the house entirely, but kudos to the manager and staff for doing their best to address the situation. The second challenge was a main drain clog that led to backed up toilets in two bathrooms; quite unpleasant but the manager worked the phones until a plumber could come out to rectify. They did an excellent and unobtrusive job of cleaning the bathrooms and restoring the systems, so what could have been a disaster ended up being a minor nuisance. Now for the many positives: the pool was terrific and used extensively by the whole family; the rooms were huge, comfortable and very tastefully decorated; the kitchen was well-stocked and allowed us to easily prepare many meals for our large group; and the volcano, ocean and sunset views were simply amazing, we spent many if not most of our hours at the house outside on the multiple patios enjoying the incredible scenery. The nearly 2,000 foot elevation of the home not only made for cooler conditions but a stunning perch for viewing a large chunk of the island. While Kohala is pretty remote (don't forget anything at the grocery store!), we quickly adjusted to slightly longer commutes to the island sites and appreciated the privacy and peacefulness of the location. Rea is a great owner and Audrey was a very helpful on-site manager, we would be very happy to stay in this lovely home again someday.

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay -- a beautiful, spacious, well-equipped house in an amazing setting. As one reviewer said, the pictures don't begin to capture the beauty of this place. Owner and caretaker were also very helpful and accommodating. We used the tennis courts and pool every day but also were well positioned for many excursions. The best beaches are within 20 minutes as is Waimea, which offers some great restaurants (Merriman's), farmers market and a large supermarket.

Christmas at Kohala Ranch Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent our 2011 Christmas at Kohala Ranch Retreat. It was a perfect spot for our family! This home is beautiful, and the view is breathtaking!! Being on the ranch, we felt we were in our own world! The photos don't do it justice! We spent most of our days, relaxing in the hot tub, swimming in the pool, playing tennis, and reading and talking while enjoying the beautiful gardens and the incredibly view. The house was clean, and well maintained, and the management was very helpful whenever we had a question or concern. The size of the home enabled our large group to have their own space, and quiet times. The kitchen was very functional, and well equipped. Being on "the ranch" enabled us to have a totally private escape holiday! The only negative was the wind. Although it was not always blowing, we did experience a few days when it really did blow. Saying this, it still was warm, and it didn't prevent us from enjoying ourselves. The owner of this home was always prompt when returning emails, and answering questions. She was very pleasant to deal with! I would definitely recommend this home to others!
