  • The perfect home for us

    "We spent 12 nights in this super home and were sad when we had to leave. The house has everything you need and more! You'll feel like you're the only one around and you don't see any other houses when you are on the property. Views are great with ocean view en lots of birds around the house. The house is very functional has everything you will need from comfortable beds to a fully stocked kitchen. Wireless internet works fine and there is satelite TV although we only used it to watch the local news once or twice. It is a bit of a drive from the airport and the road is narrow and winding but we loved the drive. And it is an easy drive to Hilo and Volcano NP. If you want to be close to restaurants and nightlife this is not the place for you but if you want a peaceful, quiet and secluded place you can't find a better place to stay. We enjoyed it very much and hope to be able to come back some day."

  • Great family trip!

    "We had a wonderful family vacation at the condo. Our children are 4 and 7 and the condo was spacious enough to give everyone room to relax. The location to the pool and the beach was perfect! We would definitely stay there again when we return. For active families like ours the condo exceeded our expectations. Thanks for a wonderful stay!"

  • Best vacation ever!

    "We have been coming to the Big Island for several years but this vacation was perfect. The ranch is located in the Meadows of Kohala Ranch. Warm sunny days and cool comfortable nights. We lived on the spacious lanai with a 180 degree view of the ocean. The Jr. suite is tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. There is a full kitchen, gas BBQ, laundry facilities and the most comfortable bed. The resorts with their restaurants, beaches and shops are just down the hill. Waimea is a nice sized town town close by with all the necessities: groceries, drugstores, churches, quaint shops and restaurants. We loved to sit on our lanai and watch the cows roam across the open range. Drive slowly, they also roam in the roads. There are wild turkey and beautiful song birds. The ranch also has 2 horses who love carrots and 2 sweet, well behaved dogs. It was comforting to know if you needed anything the Watsons were there to help and yet they give you your own very private island retreat. This is the perfect vacation spot. The weather, the open spaces, the fantastic accommodations all provided for a relaxing, rejuvenating and down right FUN TIME. WE are going back!!!"

We started and ended our day on the large ground level lanai which provided an awesome view of the ocean....coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening listening to the waves.. The condo was very well equipped and we loved its openness and the expanse of the bedrooms. I highly recommend this property!"

Hawaii Travel Tips

The eight islands collectively known as Hawaii offer abundant opportunities for surf, sun and scenic beauty. Here are the top things to do in Hawaii among the four most popular islands for visitors:

Hawaii

Also known as “The Big Island” to prevent confusion, the island of Hawaii is the largest in the chain. Here are the must-see and dos:

- Drive to Hilo off of Highway 220 and take a short hike through Akaka Falls State Park to see both Kahuna and Akaka falls, which are gorgeous.

- Take a guided tour of wild, verdant Waipio Valley. You’ll see the Kaluahine Waterfalls, which rush down a nearby cliff and into the ocean, as well as lush greenery at every turn. Go on a horseback riding tour with Na’alapa Stables or take a rough-riding tour on your own ATV with Ride the Rim.

- Check out the well-known Hilo Farmers Market to taste and purchase some of the best local Hawaiian goods: seafood, produce, clothing and crafts. It’s open every day, but the most popular days are Wednesday and Saturday. You’ll find everything from pineapples to bongo drums sold by more than 100 vendors here.

- Hit the legendary beaches. Some of the most beautiful are Papakolea Beach - it’s challenging to get to, but is one of the only beaches with olive green-colored sand in the U.S. - and Hapuna Beach State Park. Don’t miss a trip to the more remote Kealakekua Bay on the west side for excellent snorkeling and views of Spinner dolphins and sea turtles.

- Take a stroll in Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park for a dose of Hawaiian history in the form of detailed ki’i wood carvings and temples. You’ll also spot Honu’s here, which are Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.

Maui

Maui is known for its luxurious Pacific beauty. Here are the top places to see on this island:

- Catch the sunrise at the volcanic crater in Haleakala National Park. It’s a 30-minute drive from base to crater and early mornings here are cold, but the views are amazing.

- Don’t miss the Old Lahaina Luau - supposedly one of the best and most traditional in the state. The Lahaina Luau lasts three hours, accompanied by dancing, roasted pork, lomi lomi salmon and mashed taro.

- If you’re staying in Kahului, a popular Maui city, take a scenic 55-mile drive to Hana. Pack a picnic and stop along the way - this stunning winding drive over lush hills high above the ocean is well worth a slow trip.

- Nothing looks crazier than the Kaihalulu Beach in Hana. The exotic red sand beach, towering trees and deep turquoise water provides a seascape like nothing you’ve seen before.

- Check out the world’s largest dormant volcano in Haleakala National Park. It will take you two hours to reach the summit, but there are many scenic overlooks along the way. Hike popular Pipiwai trail - a four-mile stretch around the Seven Sacred Pools of Oheo Gulch, where you can stop for a relaxing swim near tiny waterfalls.

Kauai

Here are some of the best things to do on this pretty island, which is the farthest land north and west of the chain:

- Visit the magnificent and breathtaking Na Pali Coast, where sharp cliffs of varying heights jut into the sky, creating an other-worldly effect near the ocean. One of the best ways to see Na Pali is via helicopter tour from Sunshine Helicopters, which also takes you over the vibrant green Waimea Canyon.

- If you’re an experienced hiker, dare yourself to take the 11-mile muddy and rocky hike on Kalalau Trail for an unparalleled view of Na Pali.

- Hit the links at Poipu Bay Golf Course. See if you can keep your mind on the game while surrounded by acres of tropical beauty, ocean views and even cute creatures, like the turtles, monk seals and geese that often hang out on the greens.

- Lounge on the beaches. The locals hang out at a relatively calm beach called Kalapaki, but there’s also Po’ipu, Lumahai and Hanakapi’ai beaches that are perfect for sunbathing.

- See the Kilauea Lighthouse on the northernmost point, not far from the National Wildlife Refuge.

- Take surf or stand-up paddleboard lessons at the Hamilton School of Surfing or rent kayaks, boogie boards and pedal boats from Hanalei River Watersports on the Hanalei Bay.

Oahu

Oahu is the most populous Hawaiian island and home to Honolulu. Here are the best things to do here:

- Head to world-famous Waikiki and Sunset beaches and Waimea Bay to sunbathe and watch surfers. Sprawling Kailua Beach Park is perfect for families. You can watch windsurfers with colorful kites, swim in the cerulean waters or have a picnic on the sand.

- Go hiking at Diamond Head, a 300,000 year-old crater created by one massive volcanic eruption. The best time to go is in the early morning when the temperatures are cooler.

- Visit the lovely Honolulu Museum of Art to see Georgia O’Keeffe’s Maui landscape paintings, an excellent collection of Asian art and even some works by Picasso and van Gogh.

- Pay homage at the Pearl Harbor and U.S.S. Arizona Memorial. It’s located where the famous invasion took place in 1941, you can even ride with a U.S. Navy boat to see the memorial up close and pay your respects.

- Check out ‘Iolani Palace, which once belonged to King Kalakaua and his sister Queen Liliuokalani. It’s an interesting sight as it stands out next to other Hawaiian architecture.
