Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Stacey,

I wanted to give you a report on our stay. We are having a wonderful time at your beautiful vacation home at the Kohala Ranch, and feel so very fortunate to be here. The home is so pleasant in its layout and furnishings. We like the color scheme and the artwork is lovely. We have been taking advantage of the pool and grill. We love the views. We are enjoying the sunsets, star gazing, and moonlight. The geckos and birds have been entertaining us. It is perfect.

Audrey has been very helpful with our initial settling in. We have done a fair amount of exploring in the surrounding area. Tomorrow we head for the volcano.

Thank you for making your vacation home available to us.

Best regards,

Sep 2009

Sunny place to re-energize

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place ; It was just as portrayed on the web . The space offered our family of 8 ( grandparents , parents of a 1and a half year old baby and 5 adults) a great place to relax while we enjoyed the island. It is in a very tranquil setting with a nice view and gorgeous pool right in front of the house. The home is tastefully decorated and offers ample space for everyone to sleep, bathe, cook, dine and lounge both inside and outside. The house also comes well equipped with many conveniences such as bug spray, sunblock, beach toys and games, snorkelling equipment and much more. The sun umbrellas were a blessing on our visit to Spencer beach.( 12 minutes away drive)

I would definitely recommend for families as a place to relax, recharge and chill...

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! It was perfect for our family. Our group was four adults and five kids ages 3-12. It was our first time to the Big Island and I did a considerable amount of research. We are soooooo glad we got out of Kona proper. The house was excellent! Clean, nicely appointed, tons of outdoor space for dining and relaxing. From cooking to beach outings, everything we needed was available and in good repair. As with all real estate, location is key. We were very pleased to find all the most sought-after beaches were within a 15 minute drive from the house. Beach tip: Go early (9am) and you will find excellent parking and surprisingly few people. Sunset dinners on the deck were delightful. We watched the gorgeous sunsets as the kids finished up their day swimming in the pool (or hot tub in my case). One of the real stars of our trips was the property manager (Ma'ata). Our flight Christmas Eve was delayed and no stores were open Christmas day. She did an incredible amount of grocery shopping for us before we arrived, saving us time and allowing us to relax. We love you Ma'ata!! We have visited other islands in the past and we all agree, we're coming back!

Well appointed home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My family of five recently spent a week here. The house was a perfect base for an adventurous week. It's convenient to diving in Kawaihae; zip-lining near Hawi; shopping and dining in Waimea; beaches at Hapuna and Waikoloa; and all kinds of other places and activities. The "neighborhood" is very quiet and enjoys an incredibly dark sky at night - perfect for star gazing. It's also got a great view of the sunset.

The pool is immaculately maintained and refreshing and there's tons of outdoor living space both in sun and shade. We ate in quite a bit and the kitchen was convenient for preparing meals. It's very well appointed with all kinds of appliances, cookware, serving pieces, and utensils. The same thoughtfulness extends to the provision of towels, beach and pool gear, laundry detergent, dish washer tablets, toilet paper etc. Always irritating to rent a place and have to buy a whole package of laundry detergent just to do a couple of loads! Appliances and electronics are labeled and/or explained.

It's a comfortable and spacious home that served our needs perfectly. Owners and property manager are pleasant and professional.

Magnificent Site!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 spanning 3 generations loved our Kohala home for the holidays! Everything we needed was available in this lovely property. We enjoyed the home for its layout, location, space, peace, provisions, owner and management communications. A small detail we appreciated was having essential light switches labeled for our convenience. This location was perfect for our group for its proximity to beaches and activities. The layout offers privacy and space for a group such as ours as well as options for a variety of gathering spaces. We would happily return here. Aside from the qualities of the property, the views and sunsets are amazing. This is way more than simply lodging. It is a lovely home that we could enjoy spending time in.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the holidays at this lovely home and were so happy. The home is even better looking in person! The pictures don't capture the gorgeous vaulted ceilings and high windows. We were a family of six adults and two small children (3 and 11 months) and found the home to be well equipped to our needs. Kitchen was fully stocked. And it is such a nice touch that the place comes with paper products and toiletries so you don't have run to the store immediately. We also loved that it had anything we could want for the beach - water shoes, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas - it is all there! Most of our time was spent lounging on the spacious lanai admiring the view. The sunsets can't be beat! The location also worked beautifully for us. It is near so many gorgeous beaches and there is a great little strip mall just up the road with several good restaurants (Cafe Pesto, Kawaihae Kitchen and Kohala Burger and Taco) as well as a little convenience store plus Kohala Divers - great outfit if you want to go diving. Robyn, the property manager, was always accessible to us before and during our visit and had lots of useful information. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

This property was everything listed on VRBO and more. The kitchen was super well equipped for any meal preparation. The outdoor space was large and very comfortable. Robin is a terrific resource and always available for those questions that may come up. The setting was private, perfect for a large family get together. The beaches are close as well as small towns not frequented by tourists.
