Recent Kohala Ranch reviews

  • Exceptional location - exquisite sunsets

    "We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our children, their spouses, and four teenage grandsons. Everyone was delighted with this beautiful home, its location, and its amenities. We ate our meals on the spacious lanai overlooking the pool and the ocean. Each room is carefully and tastefully decorated; each bed has the most comfortable mattress imaginable, and each bedroom had its own full bath. The location is excellent for beaches and day trips. No matter how much clothing you bring the closets would never fill up. The owners and their property manager were most accommodating. It is reasonably priced; one could not book five rooms at a luxury hotel for the price of this home's rental."

  • Awesome!!

    "Immaculate landscaped grounds surround this beautiful home. Our kids loved the pool and didn't want to leave the house and when we did leave they couldn't wait to come back and jump back in. Beautiful sunsets and quiet neighborhood in a gated community. Highly recommend!"

  • This Really is a Dream House

    "This place really has everything. The house is open and spacious, the kitchen is well equipped (actually, that’s an understatement), the plantings are wonderful – it’s Hawaii, after all – and the setting is perfect. Plus, there’s the lanai! To be honest, we would have been happy if we’d pitched a tent next to that lanai. The house is wonderful and all, but with that lanai, we hardly noticed. We were outside from morning to night, going inside basically just to sleep. The views are killer, the flowers are perfect, the pool is amazing and the two-level lanai gives you the option of sitting in the sun or the shade. And did I mention the pool? SO nice! The location is exactly what we were looking for – far enough removed from the tourists, yet close enough to take advantage of restaurants and shopping. We went to Waikoloa Village a couple of times (LavaLava Beach Club). Gorgeous beaches were only 10 minutes away, and there’s a great fish market 5 minutes away, with a farm stand right next to it. Our usual routine was to go to a beach, have lunch out, and stop at the fish market and farm stand to get dinner ingredients to cook on the grille. What could be better? It’s also a quick 20 minute drive to Hawi, where there’s an incredible sushi place – I think it’s called Sushi Rock, or something like that. I read a review saying service could be a problem, but we found it to be excellent. And the food is so imaginative. Loved it! We also did the breakfast buffet at Ulu, the restaurant at the Four Seasons. Definitely worth checking out – not cheap, but impressive. The highlight of the day was sipping some kind of fruity cocktail while watching the sunset from the lanai. Did I mention the lanai is awesome? We did hike down to the beach at Pololu Valley, and we drove the upper road back from Waimea, and also over to the Pololu Valley – very scenic. Driving down through Kohala Ranch from the upper gate is a bit of an experience – there are cattle lounging in the road! Kohala Ranch is both a residential community and a working cattle ranch. We had planned to do much more hiking and sightseeing, but that lanai kept calling to us. It’s such a perfect place to relax and unwind. Sometimes I think we don’t realize how stressful our lives are until we really, really relax. If you’re looking for bright lights/big city, go somewhere else. But if you want to enjoy the kind of thing that only Hawaii can give you, this is definitely it."

  • Beautiful vacation rental and area!

    "My husband and I had a wonderful vacation while staying in this vacation rental! The unit was beautifully decorated and newly remodeled. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to call home for the 7 days we were able to stay there. John and Deborah were the perfect hosts. Always available if we needed anything or had any questions of where to go and what to see. We enjoyed the dogs in the front yard. They were very friendly and loving. It was like being at home. The unit had all the necessities we needed to prepare our meals. John and Deborah had thought of everything. The bed was so very comfortable. It made sleeping very relaxing. They even had a well written binder for us to read of all their suggestions on how to see the most beautiful beaches and best places while we were there on the northern part of the island. I enjoyed the privacy of the Kohala Ranch area. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to vacation at. The only thing I might suggest to John and Deborah, for people that want to visit this amazing area and never have been here before, is give some good directions of how to find the Kohala Ranch and how to get into the Ranch. When we arrived it was a bit confusing because we had no idea that there were two entrances to get into the ranch. But after we finally figured it out the rest of the time was the most relaxing and amazing time. Thank you for sharing your home and the time you spent sharing with us, John and Deborah! We would love to come back if we ever get back to the big island!"
