We know the owner from work and we were very first to rent the Ohana. The owner is a perfectionist - and that has been applied to the Ohana. He went all-out setting it up. Its really cool - and really clean! Its all beautiful old-wood cedar, has a lovely deck with a commanding view of the ocean, and full amenities including a Weber grill for outdoor cooking, a dishwasher, a microwave, a full fridge, a vacuum cleaner, and full-sized washer and dryer.
Its not on the water - and that's a good thing. Its up higher and had a nice cool breeze in the evenings. You are <10 minutes from downtown Kona and the farmers market. <20 minutes from Costco (supplies!) and the airport.
Please do your research, Compare with other properties. In the end, you will WANT to stay here. Its honestly that good. To paraphrase some famous words: "We'll be back!"
Loved my stay in this peaceful location with an endless view! It was super clean, tropical, and completely comfortable. I wanted my vacation to include peaceful calm mornings and evening with beach and coffee in between. My stay here was relaxing and affordable with the use of the kitchen and BBQ. Cant wait to return!
Spent some time there last year and it is beyond beautiful! Quiet, chilled, relaxing...
The place is at higher elevation so the temp is amazing! Get out of the heat and humidity after a hot day at the beach!
The place is super new, washer, drier, the whole nine yards!
I loved it and I am coming back.
The host Clif is fun and friendly and the house is top notch.
Skip the resorts and enjoy this true Hawaiian experience! It's private, quiet, very clean, and a perfect home base for exploring the Big Island. The owner and managers were so helpful. We definitely will stay here again!
