Aloha! The Red 'Ohana 3 bedroom is located on the beautifully scenic Kohala Mountain Ranch Road on the 'sunny side' of Waimea/Kamuela, above Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beach. Waimea is a quaint town with breezes and milder temperatures that provide an idyllic Hawaiian environment.

The ultimate in comfort and classic Hawaiian style, this impeccably restored large three Bedroom, two bath island home has beautiful views of the Kohala Forest Reserve and Mauna Kea. The home comes equipped with designer furnishings & linens and all the best amenities.

Ideally located just minutes from Waimea town center offering many unique shops, galleries, farmer's markets and excellent dining options. The home is very private, quiet and situated on an acre of lush landscaped land with flowers and fruit trees that are intrinsic to well being. Red 'Ohana is classic Hawaiian style architecture with wide hip roofs and a large open covered lanai, the perfect spot to enjoy your cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at sunset.

Waimea town is the best central location to explore everything from the nature of the Big Island ecology to the future of the universe at the Mauna Kea Observatory and of course the best beaches on the island are just minutes away.

You will never forget your stay in this unique home, and you will long to come back! Red Ohana is truly an elegant taste of upcountry Hawaii. Your home away from home!

About Laura

Red ‘Ohana Owner, Laura Monahan, has over 30 years experience in the luxury hotel industry. She is the ultimate host and never misses a detail when it comes to making your stay at the Red ‘Ohana memorable. You can find her most mornings paddling along Mauna Kea Beach or hiking through the beautiful Waimea hills with her two Australian Shepherds. Laura lives in Waimea with her husband and their 2 children. Come experience a piece of paradise here at the Red ‘Ohana!

Red ‘Ohana Manager, Megan Peterson, has a background in business and hospitality. She has a passion for creating unique experiences for guests and can assist you with anything from planning a Mauna Kea Summit picnic under the stars, diving with manta rays, or a sunset sail along the Kohala Coast. Megan and her family have been on the Big Island for over 30 years and she and her husband are expecting their second daughter.

Why Laura chose Hawaii

Red 'Ohana distinguishes itself from other vacation rentals first and foremost because of the casual elegance that you just won't find elsewhere. Our property is both spacious and private, and the O"hanas 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 peaceful. 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 Hawaii Preparatory Academy and Parker Ranch School.

What makes this house unique

- Five-star luxury accommodations at lower prices than resorts

- Proximity to Hawaii's best beaches, nearby attractions, and west 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.

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.

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house along with the 3 bedroom house to accommodate a large family trip. This was perfect housing.. neat, clean, spacious and fully equipped for family that included small children to have a comfortable and relaxing "home base" on our vacation. Truly felt like the comforts of home. Our hosts even made sure we had a high chair and "pack and play" for our youngest traveler, a 6 month old. Just impeccable attention to detail and first rate hospitality. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend the Red Ohana to family and friends.

Best rental available in Waimea

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay with all the amenities you need from a full kitchen to spacious bedrooms. The 3 bedroom is especially spacious with a partial basement that is perfect if you are traveling with teenagers. The cottages are clean and modern, and the location is ideal if you are visiting HPA. Laura and Meagan are extremely responsive and hospitable, and can answer any questions about where to go and what to do in Waimea or the Big Island. It's only a 18 minute drive to the Mauna Kea beach so close enough to the beach but away from the fray of a large resort and the heat.

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

The Red Ohana is the one of the best vacation experiences!! Laura Monahan made myself and my three children feel as if the Red Ohana was our home away form home. We were able to enjoy so many wonderful parts of Hawaii from zip lining to swimming with dolphins to playing golf. Many nights we cooked at home in the beautiful kitchen as well as hung out the next morning having water ballon fights. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone especially if you have children as well!

Great rental for kama'aina!

  • 5 of 5

Great rental for our family from Oahu and Hilo! Clean, comfortable, spacious, bright, and airy! Laura was a great host and was extremely responsive to our needs! Laura even provided a high chair for our 1 yr. old granddaughter that we didn't even request! It was quite helpful! Hope to return sometime soon!

Prime Waimea Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Red 'Ohana! It was the perfect escape for our family of 3. Megan and Laura had the house prepared with items for our young daughter and also made great suggestions for activities and places to eat nearby. The back lanai was our go to spot for morning coffee, BBQ at night or just reading a book. So incredible to be in the nice Waimea climate with the best beaches just a few minutes away. We love this place and will be returning soon! Thank you for making our vacation so memorable!
