Serene and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Ohana Guest House on the Kahua Ranch. Everything in the home was organized and very clean. We enjoyed the peaceful nights and walking around the property and seeing the pony and sheep in the nearby fields. We explored every morning hiking up to the weather ball the views were so amazing. The home is equipped well with everything you need and Terri was very helpful with suggestions. In summary we had a wonderful week and using the cut thru the ranch property to the beaches was a great amenity...everything you needed for the beach and a picnic was there. Mahalo!!

The view is of a big grey roof

  • 3 of 5

Terri was fantastic. So accommodating and communicative. But we thought from the photos that we'd have beautiful views of farmland and the ocean in the distance and were disappointed that the entire view was of the roof of the house 10 feet in front of the guest cottage. That was a bummer. The house and the furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need.

Set up, check in & check out were seamless. Very helpful to have access thru Kohala Ranch to get to the ocean. We were all very comfortable & enjoyed Kahua Ranch. We hope to visit again soon.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Very peaceful and quiet. The accommodations were perfect for 4. Terri was great at communicating with us regarding particulars of the cottage and places to eat and visit. We would highly recommend this cottage.
