HIGHLY recommended - from a level 5 Tripadvisor contributor
"Since my fellow travelers cannot see my profile on Tripadvisor on this site, I want to start by informing you that we travel extensively for leisure. We set the bar pretty high comparing this rental to other places we have been. I found this house after hours and hours searching VRBO, TA and other sites. It`s hard to decide where on BI to stay, and to then find the perfect house....... not an easy task. We are very glad we choose Kohala coast house! The pictures on VRBO are representative of the standard, but does not fully show the grandeur of the house. We felt like being in a celebrity series from Hollywood rather then in a rental house: Private gated and safe neighborhood, sunny and warm microclimate, short driving distance from best beaches on BI, spectacular ocean vistas, sunsets to remember for a lifetime, private clean perfectly cool pool, wonderful garden, big master suite with ensuite huge bathroom, a Tuscan feel to the house, family BBQs overlooking the ocean, large dining table outside, the list goes on and on. The value is great compared to other rentals, almost to good to be true, especially looking at the hotel rates. This place is highly recommended - bring your family and enjoy some of the best BI Hawaii has to offer (but do rent a car and drive around the whole island, it is so much to see beside Kohala ranch!)
The owners Sue and Dave are very professional, serviceminded, and responded instantly to any request we had. Mahalo Sue & Dave - and Aloha to all!"

"We had a great stay at the private villa. The pool provides great views and a chance to cool down from the summer heat. Love the pantry and supplies provided for preparing food.
Highly recommend the zipline tours and exploring the North Shore."

"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!"
