"This is an absolutely beautiful home, located in a gated community on the side of an extinct volcano with terrific views of the ocean.
The house is quite private with a distinctive Tuscan feel to it. Built around a center courtyard, it is well-furnished with a quiet and air-conditioned bedroom wing and comfortable public rooms. The kitchen is well equipped and large.
The lanai, where we spent most of our time, is superb. The covered section is reminiscent of an Italian villa, the pool is large and heated and the grounds are well maintained. The lanai is perfect for whale-watching in the morning with that second cup of coffee, or enjoying the sunsets with a gin and tonic while grilling a fresh caught opakapaka - absolute heaven!
The owners - Sue and Dave - are great to work with and are very intent that your visit is memorable.
There are simply not enough superlatives to describe this house. What better recommendation than to say we had reserved it for next year before we departed this

"Our family of 9 spanning 3 generations loved our Kohala home for the holidays! Everything we needed was available in this lovely property. We enjoyed the home for its layout, location, space, peace, provisions, owner and management communications. A small detail we appreciated was having essential light switches labeled for our convenience. This location was perfect for our group for its proximity to beaches and activities. The layout offers privacy and space for a group such as ours as well as options for a variety of gathering spaces. We would happily return here. Aside from the qualities of the property, the views and sunsets are amazing. This is way more than simply lodging. It is a lovely home that we could enjoy spending time in."

"My husband and I stayed in the Suite for about 6 weeks with our golden retriever, Toko. All three of us had an amazing time. Toko had his own fenced in yard and a large lanai with a dog bed! Toko also enjoyed walks around the ranch, where he could smell the ocean! We spent many evenings watching the sunset over the ocean while Toko played with John and Deborah's dogs in the front yard.
John and Deborah were excellent hosts. Not only were they available if we needed anything, but John gave us an excellent tip to get parking at Mauna Kea Beach. Mauna Kea Beach is one of the best beaches on the island, but parking through the resort often fills up before 9AM. Ask John how to always have a spot!
The Suite had everything we needed for a long stay. They really pay attention to details - for example they bought a new convection cooktop and switched out all of our non-compatible pots and pans. I've stayed in rentals that had several pans that would not work on the convection cooktop. This is just one example of their attention to the details.
I highly recommend this rental. We plan on returning!"

"We spent 3 months this past winter at this lovely Ohana. The views are gorgeous up in the Kohala Ranch range. Very relaxing atmosphere and close to area beaches and attractions. The Ohana was immaculate and comfortable. Deborah and John were exceptional hosts. Always available and went above and beyond to meet our needs. Would definitely stay there again if we return to the Big Island!!!!"
