Kohala Ranch villa description

Located north of Kailua-Kona on 5 acres in the gated Kohala Ranch. The home and property furnish absolute privacy with amazing unobstructed mountain, ocean and sunset views. 5 minutes from Mauna Kea beach and some of the finest golfing, deep sea fishing and scuba diving in the world.

Testamonials: The house surpassed our expectations-we thoroughly enjoyed the view, the amenities and the island...See you again soon. Bill, Peg, Pam,Sal & Ron B. 3/01

Words can hardly express how wonderful our time has been in your magnificent home. We watched beautiful sunsets and numerous whales in this wonderful secluded paradise. It's hard to leave such a wonderful place and we certainly hope we have the opportunity to return and enjoy this spacious home and beautiful amenities, We enjoyed our drive over to the local town for shopping and the use of the library. We can see why you enjoy such a great place. The kids loved the pool as well. Thank you for letting us share your home.

We've been coming to the Big Island for the last few years--We wish we had found your beautiful home sooner!
Jess, Shari, Jamie & Amy S. 5/01

Testamonials: When we talked about staying here, you mentioned that, although there are many beautiful places to visit on the Island, many never choose to leave this home--We were one of those--The daily routine was a trip to the 7/11 at the harbor for the newspaper and back home--Then pooltime--Honeymoons don't get any better than this!
Renee Mcl. 8/01
Great Home! We had a truly memorable time. Each moment was a blessing filled with beauty. Kim & Nicole 9/01

We've had a wonderful time here. The house was perfect for the 5 of us. We love the setting, landscaping, layout, great mattresses, and how well it's stocked. Thanks for making us so comfortable. It's been 10 days we'll never forget--a wonderful family vacation and celebration of engagement. Thanks for everything. We hope to come back. Will & Renee G. / Josh Andrew & Amanda M. 12/01

Testamonials: We thoroughly enjoyed this great home. The view is fantastic and the whales did the entertaining. You're right--it's much better than staying at a resort. We'll do it again. Jim K. & Family 3/02

Your home is more beautiful than you described. Our wedding was perfect. This place will always hold a special place in our hearts. We'll be back to celebrate our anniversaries. Pam & Marty 6/02

Thank you for the wonderful time we had in your home. The view is spectacular!! We spent the majority of our vacation relaxing @ the house and at the pool. The house is beautiful and the Piano is a wonderful bonus. We had a much needed break from our daily routine and look forward to visiting again. Dan & Kim 8/02
