I don't know exactly what it is about this magical place but everyone who comes here feels it. It has a relaxing and comfortable air about it that enhances your vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you both SO much for hosting us this week 5/8-5/16. We very much enjoyed your beautiful home and had a blast getting to know you guys and the animals too 😀. We wish we had some suggestions for you guys, but the only thing we can think of is to move Albert's bed into our room to make morning snuggles a bit easier.

Wishing you guys the best and please stay in touch!

Aloha,

Stephanie and Julien

Wonderful stay

The ranch is beautiful; Kate is beautiful; the horses and dogs are beautiful. We enjoyed our stay very much despite a lot of rain the first few days.

Quiet, secluded and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

This was our very first VRBO experience and it was a good one. This property is about I would say 10-15 minutes out of Hilo, which is just the way we like it. A pleasant drive to Hilo along the ocean in the morning for breakfast at Ken's Pancake House. Kate the owner was helpful and unobtrusive. The suite we had was a seperate room with a queen size bed, a kitchenette and dining area and an outdoor shower that was actually very refreshing in the morning! I think we got lucky with the weather as there was light rain at night but sunny the three days we were there. Two dogs on the property, Albert (and Moe I think) was very friendly and neither one of them barked even once. Partial ocean view from the lanai and there are horses on the property too. I should mention that it would have been nice to have a larger fridge but Kate did offer to let us use her kitchen any time. Great experience... we will be back! Thanks Kate.

Tranquil, high end property, close to everything on the Hilo side of Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 nights over Christmas on this property and fully enjoyed the experience. Both the indoor and outdoor space are very comfortable and peaceful. The house is very well appointed, including both the private kitchenette and the shared gourmet kitchen. The main bedroom, facing the ocean, includes a luxurious king bed. We used the second bedroom for a dressing room to spread out luggage.

The owner, Kate, was extremely easy to communicate with during booking and approaching arrival. She is friendly, and did not compromise privacy or comfort of her guests (during our stay another guest arrived from Brazil to stay in the second rental unit).

As this is a working ranch, we thoroughly enjoyed the resident canines, Moe and Albert. Both excellent readers of people, coming close for a extended pat, or settling into their own space/beds. Kate also trains horses and riders, and we enjoyed visiting the barn down the hill daily and I trail rode for a couple of hours with Kate. A highlight of this 2 week Hawai'ian holiday. When we left the ranch, we made easy day trips to Waipio Valley, Waimea, Honoka'a and Hilo. Less than 15 miles from Hilo airport.
