We found this place to be very clean and accommodating for all of our needs. Our desire was to stay in the north part of the Island, away from other homes and congestive traffic and surrounded by pastures, panoramic views yet to be an easy drive to known scenic spots on the North Kohala and including Wiapi'o Valley. If you love horses, this is the place to stay. As I walked to the Na'alapa Stables located right on this 8500+/- acres Kahua Ranch, I passed herds of cowboy horses (they like carrots). There where pastures with sheep and pastures with cattle. Just so peaceful. The home we stayed in was actually a spacious 2 bdrm, 1 bath apartment above a two car garage and adjacent to a large VRBO house. We could see the roof of the house which was only about 4-5' away. The house did obstruct the view of the coastline, but not the ocean. Sunsets were beautiful, especially from the front yard of the property. Within the apartment and down stairs were a washer and dryer, and spare ice chests for our use. The place did not have an oven, but we could use the slow cooker, stove top, toaster over, or microwave to fix our meals. This place was uncluttered and well made and everything functioned well; the Internet was very fast. Each bdrm had ample cabinets and closets to unpack and just move in. There were beach towels to use and a BBQ too. The location is at elevation 3500' or so, thus it is cool and breezy and maybe rainy in the AM and PM, there are plenty of blankets to use. I would definitely stay here again only longer than 7 nights. Terry was very responsive and helpful.

Best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location at Kahua Ranch. It was a beautiful home with lots of space and we especially liked being a quick drive to the ocean as well as the lovely town of Waimea. Terri was exceptional to deal with and made everything so easy! We would love to come back and stay here again someday!
