Kahuku is a wild place. Remote, yet still an accessible sanctuary in the midst of a gloriously open and sometimes rugged landscape.
The Koa House
The Koa House is a natural Commons, and may serve as a Central Lodge. The Koa House showcases a large open common space shared with a generous natural lava rock fire place and 275 degeree view wide and deep over the free expanse of the Pacific Ocean, the rugged slopes of Mauna Loa and Kahuku’s green open pastures.
It features sleeping accommodations for 14.
The Ranch Village
Seven vintage Ranch Homes, each framed under traditional rooflines and well maintained. It is an intimate village-esque place and subtle reminder of former cherished times.
Several of the Cowboy Houses have their own dwelling facilities and combined sleeping accommodations for 32, with opportunities for additional sleeping spaces
Kahuku Ranch maintains immaculate and well-managed grazing lands.
Na Lua (The Craters)
