Recent Kohala Ranch reviews

  • The best Hawaii has to offer

    "If you can only stay in one place in Hawaii and you want it to be the most spectacular, romantic and luxurious ever than the HHH is the place for you. Situated in the middle of the Kohala Ranch with a view of almost 360 degrees, you are in your own private oasis. No neighbors, no traffic, nothing but serenity, beauty and cows rambling down the road. The home is everything you hoped for and more - much more. The furnishings are impeccable. We had planned many side trips during our ten day stay but most days couldn't even think about leaving "our home". Relaxing in the infinity pool, watching a movie on the big screen, or just lazing about on the incredibly comfortable outdoor furniture made it difficult to leave. Did we mention the sunsets, well, they are spectacular too. We have rented many 5 star homes around the world and this one easily ranks #1 on our list. Go enjoy and see for yourselves."

  • Well appointed home in a great location

    "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."

  • 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!"

  • Yes, you can go home again, our return to paradise!

    "Our first visit was perfection, and we spent most of our time at the house by the pool, and cooking while watching the sunrise and set, because we thought we would never return. Well return we did and it was just fabulous. Two slow weeks living island style. After a long days journey we were fortunate to meet Ali for a few short minutes, as she was on property to make sure everything was up to her standards. And they met ours as well. It was like coming home. Bonus was livestock in the Heathers. What a treat to wake up and see cattle grazing around us, as well as upcountry. And the birds and geckos abounded us with delight. One day, upon returning to the property from a short excursion, I had to laugh at a negative review of this property. The winds were up and after a couple of hours the pool was indeed trashed. But my loving husband/pool boy skimmed it to perfection for my afternoon dip to cool off. People must realize this is a self catering experience, to live on a communal gated ranch. I admit that I was concerned by August heat, but most nights it got cool enough to add the comfy blanket over the quality sheets, with a fan on. Ali personally made sure all ceiling and floor fans were in working order. She takes serving her guests very seriously, and I admire that personal dedication. She was always available to us if need be. Thank you Ali for you true aloha hospitality in making our vacation a vacation to home. We consider this home to be such a great value, when you consider the cost of maintenance. The pool man, the greens man, the gatekeeper, the ranch coop fees, the electricity. All in it was a again a great value. I am sure the owner is not even covering their costs. Do not hesitate to make this your home for a short piece of your life. It is very rewarding."
