Recent Kohala Ranch property reviews

  • Fabulous for families with kids

    "We were two families with a total of 3 school-aged kids. The house was spacious, bight, spotless and beautifully appointed. The kids had a blast in the pool and we all enjoyed dinners on the back patio with the view of the sunsets. We ate most meals at the house and loved the fully-stocked kitchen, as well as the big outdoor BBQ. We also enjoyed the early morning walks around the Kohala Ranch, where the house is located (before it gets too hot and it's time to head to the beach). The sweeping views are spectacular! Be sure to drive up to the "top" of the ranch to actually see the ranch's cows, enjoy the views and appreciate the difference the higher altitude makes. While the drive from the Kona airport was not quick (40 min), getting to the many fabulous Kohala beaches was a quick 15 min drive. Be ready for the sounds of the wind at night, but this is story in all of Kohala and you get quickly get used to it. NOTE: We are recommending this for families with young children meaning school-aged kids rather than babies or toddlers."

  • Relaxing vacation with spectacular views!

    "We rented this house for 8 days in seek of total relaxation and to get away from the 'resort' atmosphere. Our vacation was for a babymoon - one last adult adventure before our second child arrives. The Honeymoon House provided all that we could dream - and more! It is impeccably clean, provides the most dramatic views of the Pacific (especially at sunset) and offers a comforting spot to sit, lie or float from any room. The master bed provided pure comfort for this pregnant mamma, and the views from the room at sunrise made waking up early something I looked forward to each day. We took full advantage of the grill and fully equipped kitchen for almost every meal. Grilling at sunset was also a highlight each day - - not to mention the multiple whale sightings from the lanai every time I looked out onto the Pacific. The location is great for sightseeing. We saw many different beaches along the Kohala coast, took a helicopter tour from Waikoloa, toured the charming towns of Waimea and Hawi (must sees!) and drove the entire island in one day. If you travel to Hawi - you must stop in and have a coffee or ice cream at Kohala Coffee Mill and take the short drive to see Pololu Valley. If you travel to Waimea, take the back way on Kohala Mountain Road on a clear day for breathtaking views. You will feel like you're on top of the island. My husband and I hope to stay here again soon and highly recommend this to anyone."

  • We'll be back!!!

    "We had a fantastic time in the luxurious, spacious Welina house! We are a family of 5 and travelled with my husband's sister and daughter. With 3 adults and 4 teenagers, we needed a place with some space and a fully equipped kitchen. We rented the house and guesthouse. The house was a 12 minute drive to two of the most gorgeous beaches on the island, Puako and Mauna Kea. There was also an excellent fish market at the bottom of the hill and fantastic shave ice/icecream place (I recommend the white chocolate ginger icecream, but all flavors were excellent). After each day at the beach, we enjoyed having dinner in the fully equipped kitchen/dining area and watching the gorgeous peaceful sunsets by the pool. The house is about 10 degrees cooler than down by the beach, so much more comfortable. Sometimes it was pretty windy so we only used the jacuzzi/pool a few times. There were lots of movies and games for the family too. All in all, the description was accurate, the photos reflect the amenities, the property was clean and well-maintained, Pam was very helpful in answering questions/concerns, and we will definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. We hope to come back too!"

  • Beautiful Space and Gracious Hospitality

    "This was a perfect place for our vacation. Beautiful views of the ocean with lots of whales to watch in the morning, or turn around and see the sun come up over Mauna Kea. Two comfortable bedrooms, each with their own bath, a warm pool if you didn't feel like going to the nearby beaches and a hot tub at night to enjoy the starry skies. Our hosts provided a wonderful breakfast -- so much fresh fruit and delicious Kona coffee -- and stocked the mini kitchen with things for our hikes. We were able to explore the entire island from the location and enjoyed the peacefulness of the setting. A great value and truly private."

Kohala Ranch Travel Tips

Hawaiian Luxury With Kohala Ranch Condos

Along the northeastern coast of the island of Hawaii lies Kohala Ranch, a high end primarily gated community rich with fabulous and luxurious homes. Kohala Ranch itself is popular with the locals, but Kohala Ranch condos are a popular attraction for tourists as well. This is largely due to the combination of luxurious living and close proximity to all the sights and attractions of Kohala Beach.

Easy Access From Kohala Ranch

Kohala Ranch condos provide an amazing luxury experience in a gated estate community as well as breathtaking views only available along the coast of Hawaii. In spite of the luxury and isolation, it's still extremely easy to get to anything your heart desires in the area. There are over a half dozen resorts within a five minute drive where you can partake in all Hawaii has to offer. Mauna Kea beach is right around the corner, where you can swim, surf, scuba, or just partake in the sun and beautiful mild weather. Kohala Ranch house rentals make it easy to relax whether you're going out or coming back in.

No Place Like Home Away From Home

There's nothing quite like living in the lap of luxury, taking in the beautiful sights and sounds of a tropical island paradise. With Kohala Coast vacation rentals, it doesn't have to be a dream. Living out of even the most impressive hotels still never quite feels like home. With Kohala Ranch house rentals, you and any traveling companions get access to amenities like a full kitchen and dining room, private bedrooms and bathrooms, multiple televisions, gym access, and more. In many cases there is even a beach club or pool access pass included. You can choose to eat at locations like the Beach Tree Bar and Grill, or prepare meals just as if you were at home. The choice is yours.
