About the property

A Large, Clean, Renovated Studio Ohana

A large renovated studio ohana on the tranquil Kohala Coast with exquisite Ocean and Mountain views. The luxurious unit comfortably sleeps two people in the queen size bed. Beautiful full bathroom with shower. The ohana has a large private lanai with bbq and outside dining. Big expansive ocean and mountain views of Mauna Loa and Hualalai. Mauna Kea is also visible from the property.

In the winter months, you may see humpback whales from the lanai. At night, the dark skies make star gazing sublime.

If you ever tire of going to the beautiful nearby beaches of Hapuna, Mau'umai, Puako (Waialea Bay), or Mauna Kea, swimming in the crystal clear ocean, or exploring the island, the ohana has both a Direct TV and a Netflix account. There are also bluetooth speakers to listen to music.

While the space is most comfortable, and priced, for two people, we can supply you with an Aerobed air mattress if you'd like to have your child/children travel with you. We also have a Pack - n - Play for the little ones.

If this ohana unit is booked please contact me for other options that I can suggest.

We live on the property and will leave you alone as much as possible, other than to say hello and answer your questions, but if you need anything we'll be available.

On the premises there are two friendly standard poodles, two African grey parrots, five dwarf goats, and nine chickens. There is also a donkey that comes to visit a couple of days a week. There can be some animal noises on the property, sporadically, throughout the day.

About Pamela Small

Outgoing, fun loving, adventurous, friendly, animal loving artist who loves living in Hawaii. I really enjoy having the opportunity to share the paradise of the Big Island with others. The Big Island is alive and vibrant like very few places on earth. It is a spectacular place to live.

As a host I'll see you to say hello and welcome you to the ohana. If you need anything I'm in the next building. I want your stay to be a pleasant one and your experience on the island to be filled with aloha.

Pamela Small purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Pamela Small chose Kohala Estates

I bought this property for the views. It had been abandoned for several years and needed a full renovation and I'm always up for that kind of challenge.

A trip of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay on the big island. The accommodations exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable, well furnished bungalow with a wonderful ocean and mountain view then this is the place. The owners were a joy! They were most accommodating and insightful with many great suggestions for places to visit. All beach and snorkel gear is provided with superb beaches near by. The location is terrific. We can't wait to come back!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay at John and Pamela's "cottage"! Very quiet, very comfortable and really a great location to explore the beaches and small towns of the Northwest (and east) coast.

The cottage has everything you need, including beach chairs, boogey boards and even eggs from their chickens (nice touch!).

Thanks for a great time!

Pretty Ohana on the hill

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay and with such accommodating hosts. Pamela has thought of everything in making arrival seamless and welcoming, in checking in to ensure things remain great, and with allowing for an easy check out, too. The property is clean, which is very important especially for us. The space was just the size we require, and the wood floors and trim felt warm and inviting. We loved going out to one side and seeing sweeping views of the volcanoes and ocean, while going out the other way meant we would get to see the adorable goat family that seemed to be keeping an eye on the property. A little disappointed we didn't see Geronimo, the local wild donkey, so I guess we'll have to look out for him next time we visit this pretty Ohana on the hill.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review! I'm disappointed that you didn't get to see Geronimo, too. He tends to come every day or two, but has been less frequent lately. Such is the life of a wild donkey. He lives life on his own schedule and if he has found someone to feed him carrots somewhere...he'll stick around there for awhile! Please come back and see us when your travels bring you back to the Big Island!
