  • 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."

  • Wonderful stay on the Kohala coast

    "Enjoyed a week on the Kohala coast. A bit of a drive to Kona yet close to the warm town of Waimea for groceries, etc. Would stay here again."

  • Beautiful home. Peaceful elegance and comfort

    "This home is quite simply beautiful and exactly as advertised. The home is clean, beautifully maintained and provides exceptional privacy, quiet, and comfort. My family and I spent a lot of time by the pool taking in the extraordinary views (morning, noon and stars at night) and enjoying the peacefulness. Every aspect of our experience with the home could not have been better. The amenities were spot on and we felt right at home. Great beaches and restaurants a 10-15 minute drive away, although we enjoyed making many meals in the well-appointed kitchen. The property owner and manager were a pleasure to work with and made everything quite easy. I have stayed in many places around the world and have very few 5 star experiences, but this is one of them. Mahalo !"
