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. Mark
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'. Mark and Riana
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! Sibby and Bruce

About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Kohala Ranch: 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.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We bought our unit 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.
