About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Don't spend your entire vacation budget on a cramped hotel room with no ocean view when traveling to Hawaii. The money you save can pay for all your food, entertainment, and rental car!

Spread out and enjoy sweeping ocean and Big Island mountain views in your own 2-bedroom private apartment with separate entrance and parking. Your home away from home in Hawaii is part of our sprawling, custom-built ranch estate covering 3 acres on the coveted Kohala Coast.

For less than the price of a single hotel room in the nearby resorts of Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani, and Waikoloa Beach, your family or group of up to four people can spread out in 800 square feet of luxury, including a full working kitchen, upgraded to granite countertops, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, living, entertainment, and office areas, laundry room, and spacious private wraparound lanai/balcony with outdoor dining for 4, chaise lounges, and 8-person hot tub.

The entire apartment overlooks a 180-degree view of the ocean and mountains. Be part of the family with the owners, dog, cat, and horse, or take advantage of the privacy of your personal apartment. Your choice.

The owners and designers of this modern ranch home, built in 2008, live fulltime on the island in main house. Also on the property are a 1-bedroom Ohana (guest house), as well as a studio unit and this 2-bedroom apartment overlooking the sea.

This 2-bedroom home features a romantic 4-poster king bed in the master bedroom, with a 32” Samsung smart TV. The second bedroom features either a king bed or two twin beds with a 26” TV and DVD. Pack N Play available upon request for $10/night.

The living and entertainment area boasts a cushy couch, side chairs, and TV/stereo center with a Sony XBR 65” 4K smart TV with OPPO BDP-103D Blue Ray Disk player. The dining table seats 4, and the large bathroom with double marble vanity and shower is perfect for groups of up to four people.

Available by the night, week, or month, this 2-bedroom apartment is one of the best deals on the Big Island. Located in the private gated community of Kohala Ranch, the 3-acre property is also gated. You are within 15 minutes of Hawi and Waimea, as well as the three beach resorts, making this the perfect location. At 1,900 feet elevation, it's also the perfect climate: no need for A/C or heat, and always in the comfy 60s and 70s. Lighted ceiling fans in each room for added comfort.

Ask about our special volcano day tour to enjoy during your stay, including stops at a waterfall, candy/cookie factory, vanilla farm, and Hilo.

You can fly into Kona or Hilo, each about 45 minutes to an hour away, so you have more flight options.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic six nights with wonderful hosts. Immaculate accommodations, outstanding location, truly relaxing. This is the "anti-resort" for those that really want to get away. Easy drive to the beaches, resorts and shopping but returning to the ranch is the best part - quiet, relaxing and what a view! Will plan on returning for another vacation.

An excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 6 nights at this beautiful apartment. Furnishings, cleanliness, and layout are superb, and the views are spectacular. Sunsets and stars in the hot tub are the icing on the cake. Nicely located to explore a great part of the island.

Unquestionably the best hosts in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this apartment for 2 years running for 5 months at a time. It would still be our winter home but we loved Hawaii so much we bought out own place. The unit is very tastefully furnished with plenty of amenities. The ocean view is spectacular. We love the 2 horses and the dogs and the chance to garden. The location is prime - easy access to fabulous beaches and Hawi and Waimea. But by far the best part of staying here are the hosts who are helpful and friendly in every way.

Hawaii frequent visitor

  • 4 of 5

Excellent accommodations and amenities. Distant from any social life/shopping and beaches, but good access to remote northwestern coastal towns and sights. Full facilities, kitchen, laundry, living and sleeping spaces furnished beautifully and functionally. The hot tub on the deck was wonderful...morning coffee and a superb view. The major drawback was the noise from above. The owners live above, and the ceiling and walls are thin. Most of the time it was quiet, but we were awakened early morning by the sounds of footsteps, shower, and toilet flushing (the drain is in our master bedroom wall), and their dogs running/walking on the deck above our room, sometimes barking. Highly recommended if you don't mind such noise.

  • 5 of 5

We had an exceptional stay. The accommodations were immaculate, well designed for privacy and convience, and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We had been thinking about staying at Kohala Ranch for some time and found the perfect place. Loved the space of Kohala., not to mention the incredible view and sunsets! The apartment had everything we needed. It felt like it was our own place. at least for a short time. The beaches are just a short drive (which is what we come for). We plan to return and enjoy it all again. Mahalo for creating such a lovely place.

Peaceful setting in Kohala ranch

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful. We stayed in the 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with the hot tub. Everything, and I mean everything, you need to make your stay go smoothly is in the apartment. Kitchen had all the dishes, dishware, etc. There are beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, ice chests, I think you get the picture.....The rooms are spacious and there is a tv in one of the bedrooms. The living room was set up for TV and video; internet access worked as well. The horses are beautiful, the dogs friendly, and the hosts are very gracious. This is a great location. You are half way up the mountain for Waimea trips and half way from the beaches and resorts. The night sky is wondrous with all the stars and very little ground light so you see the sky. The view of the ocean when you are drinking your coffee on the lanai in the morning is great. The hosts have put an information book together that is really helpful with maps, suggestions for tours and sightseeing, as well as local restaurants. This is a great place!
