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.

This part of the Big Island is a stunning green and blue natural beauty. Fun to see the ranch lands in contrast to the beaches, volcanoes and mountains on other parts of the island.

Beautiful retreat...

We loved our stay here. The countryside is stunning and we enjoyed seeing all the animals roam the property. We loved the location, the home was very clean, and the owners were very helpful. We will definitely return.

The Ohana Hale at Kahua Ranch was a delightful place to stay on the big island.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time at Kahua Ranch. We loved the area and had a great time exploring around. Terri was very friendly and helpful. The Ranch was beautiful and the view from the weather station was breathtaking. We also enjoyed being able to cut through private property to go straight down to the coast. It was a fun trip down and made the ranch easily accessible. We would have liked to have been able to take advantage of an ATV tour they have there on the ranch but didn't book it in time. I would definitely look into it again on another visit. We traveled as a family around the Big Island, and I think our favorite area was here. I've heard my teenage boys say our visit to the ranch was a highlight of our trip. Thanks Terri and Tim!

The interior of the house is lovely but...

  • 3 of 5

The interior of the house is lovely, everything that the pictures show, very clean and comfortable. Good kitchen, good space overall. However, the only view is through the west windows where you will see some of the sky above the metal roof of the beautiful large rental home next door. The view from the rest of the windows is scrubby unkempt and unappealing. Be sure that you understand that the travel distances to Waimea or Hawi or down to the beaches is 20-25 minutes plus. Also be aware that this accommodation is more than 3400 feet above sea level so pack a sweater to wear inside the house. Unfortunately for us the weather was windy and cool during our stay. The bench seating on the small wood deck located outside the door was weather beaten and bare, and there is no view of Maui? The photos should show a bit more of the exterior of the small house you are renting and not the beautiful large house next to it.
