Red 'Ohana distinguishes itself from other vacation rentals first and foremost because of the casual elegance that you just won't find elsewhere except at exorbitantly priced resorts (and without our amenities). Our property is both spacious and private, and the ohanas were the original Parker Ranch caretakers' quarters. Once you explore the island, you will appreciate the mild, temperate climate. The property atmosphere is relaxed and your peace will not be impacted by noisy roosters, coqui frogs, pets, or other animals. Your access to Waimea town is a 5 minute drive and access to beautiful beaches is an easy, scenic 8 minute drive. It would be difficult to find a property with all of features and amenities for the same price elsewhere on the island. Sometimes local residents stay with us for their weekend getaway. Many parents stay with us when visiting their children who attend the prestigious Hawaii Preparatory Academy.
- Five-star luxury accommodations at lower prices than resorts
- Proximity to Hawaii's best beaches, nearby attractions, and east side of the island.
- Attentive, experienced concierges for property or activity needs
- Strong connection to old Hawaii and historic Parker Ranch, and an active community not overcome with tourists.
- Moderate climate - neither hot like the coast nor chilly even at night.
Laura was so welcoming and very helpful! We loved the red ohana! Also Waimea is a great little town with everything you need.
We recently spent nine days in the Big Island and stayed at the Red Ohana 2-bedroom. First, the location on the island was just right for us--an hour to Kona one direction, an hour to Hilo the other way, and accessible to any part of the island. Waimea is a nice-sized town with enough to do and plenty of places to eat and shop. The house itself was comfortable, cozy, and spotlessly clean. For two couples it was perfect, with two nice bedrooms, a comfortable big living room, and a small but well-stocked kitchen. We much appreciated the washer and dryer and the supply of beach towels, mats, and chairs. The lanai was a perfect place to sit and enjoy the soft Hawaii air and listen to the birds, and there was a very attractive garden with fruit trees and blooming flowers. Finding the place at night was a little tricky--the driveway is hard to see without light on the red mailbox--but we quickly mastered that. Three of our days the tradewinds blew hard and the weather at night was downright cool, but we appreciated the warm beds with their quilts and spent our days in warmer parts of the island. My wife, son and daughter-in-law and I would gladly stay there again, and we're trying to interest our other children in the three-bedroom Red Obama next door.
We loved staying at the Red 'Ohana! It was first class. The house is adorable and so well appointed with everything we needed and the beds and sheets were incedible and really was great to crawl into after a fun filled day exploring the magnificent island. The Red Ohana is very private and quite, and close to all the island activities and close to the best beaches in the world. The weather was perfect and enjoyed the cool evenings. We can't wait to return next year.
Our party consisted of two couples. We were very comfortable at Laura's place. As noted in other reviews, Laura was very helpful in attending to any questions and needs. We were able to check out late to accommodate our late flight. This was very helpful.
The accommodations provided well appointed rooms, with top of the line linen and towels. We also experienced house keeping twice during our week long stay which was a nice surprise.
The lanai was wonderful and provided a nice space to relax at the end of the day.
We spent 10 days here and loved the cottage and the location. The cottage is fully equipped with all that you need for cooking, etc, excellent internet and tv, and a great outdoor covered porch (lanai). The service from the housekeeper and the owner was superb. If we were ever in need, a quick text was all it took to address whatever came up be it information about things to do, etc. We hope to return soon!!!
Three of our wedding guests stayed at the 2 bdrm Red 'Ohana and raved about how wonderful it was. Laura was so thorough and great to work with. She gave us all the details ahead of time and even reached out to our guests. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Red 'Ohana (2BR and 3BR) provides the most authentic connection to old Hawaii with truly ideal weather, plenty of modern conveniences, quick access to resort beaches, and without the feeling of being in a tourist town. Two shopping centers, several art galleries, a performing arts theater, fine and casual dining, a sense of community, and the best beaches in the state are just some of the reasons to stay with us here Kamuela/Waimea. No where else on the island are there 4 weekly farmers markets - 3 on Saturday, 1 on Wednesday. Taste and experience the aloha among friends, families, and farmers. Cook up fresh organic produce and local beef in our gourmet kitchen or BBQ on the lanai. Amenities abound - use the stable of bodyboards, beach chairs, and beach umbrellas. We can suggest, plan, or arrange a tour or itinerary suited to your interests, time, and priorities. At the end of the day, sleep in the most luxurious beds - resort beds won't compare.
Take advantage of our 30 years of hospitality experience and knowledge of this amazing island that we call home. Our personal mission is to exceed your expectations so our attention to detail is evident throughout.
