Property description

Aloha! The Red 'Ohana 2 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 two Bedroom, one 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!

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.

 

Owner info

About the owner: E komo mai! Laura has over 30 years in the luxury hotel industry and Megan has a background in business and concierge. Whether you are looking for a quiet getaway or tips for the best Big Island experiences, we are your team! From paddle boarding to hiking to fine cuisine, we have seen and done it all. We also know that small details can make your vacation, and we are always just a phone call away. Come stay at the immaculately maintained and comfortable Red ‘Ohanas, your home away from home.

Why the Owner Chose Kamuela (Waimea):
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 10 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
- 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.
