Why Laura chose Waimea
Red 'Ohana distinguishes itself from other vacation rentals first and foremost because of the casual elegance that you just won't find elsewhere. Our property is both spacious and private, and the O"hanas were the original Parker Ranch caretakers' quarters. Once you explore the island, you will appreciate the mild, temperate climate. The property atmosphere is relaxed and peaceful. Your access to Waimea town is a 5 minute drive and access to beautiful beaches is an easy, scenic 8 minute drive. It would be difficult to find a property with all of features and amenities for the same price elsewhere on the island. Sometimes local residents stay with us for their weekend getaway. Many parents stay with us when visiting their children who attend Hawaii Preparatory Academy and Parker Ranch School.
What makes this House unique
- Five-star luxury accommodations at lower prices than resorts - Proximity to Hawaii's best beaches, nearby attractions, and west side of the island. - Attentive, experienced concierges for property or activity needs - Strong connection to old Hawaii and historic Parker Ranch, and an active community not overcome with tourists.

Clean, comfortable and convenient
We had a wonderful stay at Red ‘Ohana. The house was clean and fully equipped for a week’s stay. Our family of 4 had plenty of space and room and the location was perfect for us in the heart of beautiful Waimea.
Laura was very accommodating. Concierge Nathalie was very helpful, both before and during our stay. Nice touch to have a concierge at a vacation rental. Property was lovely!
Quintessential Hawaiian experience
The property was perfect!l Great location, lovely accommodations with lots of authentic Hawaiian touches. Great space. We only had 4 but could easily accommodate 6-8. We didn't cook in the kitchen but they had all the appliances and "stuff" you could ever need. Laura and Nathalie were terrific and very helpful with stuff to do, places to eat, massages, etc. Overall had a wonderful stay.
At home in Waimea.
The Red O’hana feels like a stay in a dear friend’s home in Hawaii. The location is great and the setting is lovely. We woke up to birds singing and had our morning coffee watching colorful lizards, green hills, and perfect skies. Everything you need is there - along with our requested groceries - in a perfectly organized and comfortable user friendly way.
This was my second stay at the red O’hana (last year I stayed in the 2 bedroom with 2 of us and this time in the 3 bedroom with 6 of us). I much prefer this experience to the flashy beach hotels. This feels like real Hawaii.
It’s perfect for Hawaii Prep families since it’s right across the street.
Laura and Nathalie are exceptional hosts and make sure your stay is carefree and enjoyable. I hope to go back again in the near future.
Perfect. Just what we needed. Lots of space and close to our daughter’s home and work.
Great condition and very clean. The owners were very responsive to our requests!
We had an amazing stay at the red ohana. The house was very comfortable and had everything we could possibly need. The deck is a great place to spend the mornings or sunset, and the location makes driving to the beach or town super convenient.
Red 'Ohana (2BR and 3BR) provides the most authentic connection to old Hawaii with truly ideal weather, plenty of modern conveniences, quick access to resort beaches, and without the feeling of being in a tourist town. Two shopping centers, several art galleries, a performing arts theater, fine and casual dining, a sense of community, and the best beaches in the state are just some of the reasons to stay with us here Kamuela/Waimea. No where else on the island are there 4 weekly farmers markets - 3 on Saturday, 1 on Wednesday. Taste and experience the aloha among friends, families, and farmers. Cook up fresh organic produce and local beef in our gourmet kitchen or BBQ on the lanai. Amenities abound - use the stable of bodyboards, beach chairs, and beach umbrellas. We can suggest, plan, or arrange a tour or itinerary suited to your interests, time, and priorities. At the end of the day, sleep in the most luxurious beds - resort beds won't compare.
Take advantage of our 30 years of hospitality experience and knowledge of this amazing island that we call home. Our personal mission is to exceed your expectations so our attention to detail is evident throughout.
