About Vicki or Randy Rohner
We've been hosting travelers to Hawaii for many years. We LOVE meeting people from all over the world. Randy was born here and Vicki has lived here for 35 years. Want to know where to go and who to do? We can help.
Why Vicki or Randy Rohner chose Kailua-Kona
If you love to take long walks or runs, the Walua Walking trail is miles long and at a cooler elevation. The house is a flat-roofed, contemporary design, and we love the peace and quiet here.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our neighborhood is quiet and situated on a road with very little traffic. We are at a cooler elevation, and with very little traffic noise, you can leave the chaos of the town behind, but still be ten minutes away. Our pool has a view up and down the coast, and we enjoy sunset views every day.

Nice Little Condo with a view
We stayed here Nov 1 - Nov 10th 2018 and loved it. It's a little set back from the water and from the crowds and the big island is less like a tourist trap too. It's also a nice island for snorkeling. The price was good, and everything about the place was well communicated. Vicki and Randy were friendly and responsive and we had a late flight when we left so we requested to leave a few hours later which was not a problem for them. The neighborhood is quiet and there is a nice walking path up the road with views of the ocean too. They also had lot's of equipment to use. Chairs, beach towels, snorkels (We brought our own snorkel masks) Boogie boards and noodles etc.. I would definitely consider staying here again. Perfect for a couple or even a single person. I wouldn't have more than 3 stay here as there is only one queen bed and a sofa in the main room.
It was a pleasure to have you with us! Thanks for leaving the place spotless, and we are pleased we could accommodate your late departure.
Outstanding amenities - everything we needed and more. We loved the pool and the view of the water and sunsets every evening. Randy and Vicki were wonderful hosts!
Great alternative to over priced noisy resorts.
If you prefer the quite comfort of your own space then Vicki and Randy's Ohana is the perfect alternative to resorts.
Nestled in a stylish neighbourhood, with beautiful views of the coastline and Kailua-Kona Harbour this property is ideally located for easy quick access to the beaches, shopping, and Kona's nightlife.
Located on the ancient Walua Walking Trail it is ideal for those who like to start their day with a walk or jog and take in the vistas from 200 meters above sea level.
The elevation keeps the Ohana pleasantly cool, with ample cross ventilation, augmented by very efficient ceiling fans. No air con needed here.
The bedroom furnishings and linens provide for excellent sleep quality, and there is more than enough closet and drawer space for more than the 1 or 2 guests that would be at home here.
Visitors will definitely need a car, but no problem with parking in one's assigned space.
The only thing that exceeds the accommodation is the warm and welcoming greeting extended by Vicki and Randy. It is the true Hawaiian Aloha which only comes from spending all or a great portion of their lives here on Hawaii Island.
Find time to share wonderful stories of their lives and enjoy Vicki's beautiful works of art.
Guests, while sharing the pool and deck will not have their time compromised as Vicki and Randy are very understanding and the consummate hosts.
Would I return........yes in a heartbeat.

Derrick spent three weeks with us, and it passed too quickly! Our common "Aussie" background made for delightful conversations. He is a considerate guest and left our apartment immaculate. We were delighted to be able to chat poolside with him, as well as share a meal. We always endeavor to be aware of our guest's expectations of privacy or interaction. Looking forward to our next encounter.
Very nice unit!
This was our 20th time on the Big Island and this is one of the best rentals we have stayed in. Very quiet and the morning coffee by the pool was very relaxing. Vicki and Randy are wonderful hosts. Thanks again for making this another great trip!

It was our pleasure to have this couple in our home. We gave them a late checkout, and they did most of the housekeeping!....WOW! Thoughtful and kind, we look forward to seeing them again. Enjoyed coffee by the pool and just sharing life in general. Please come back.........
Apartment with perks!
This apartment was spacious and clean. Because it is in a neighborhood, there isn't much noise from cars and such, and there is a great walking path in the area. It was absolutely wonderful to have access to their pool and we loved the area for our morning coffee. Randy, Vicki and Lindsey were fabulous hosts! The only reason for not giving 5 stars is due to the constant sound of running water you can hear in the bedroom. While some might find this sound soothing, it was too loud and constant during the night for us, we ended up wearing earplugs to sleep.
Oh NO! We realized that there were toads in the pond while you where here....Buffos have a very LOUD, machine gun-type call..We cleared that up. The waterfall in the pond near the bedroom window can be shut off! I will be sure to advise other guests if they find it irritating instead of soothing!
Very good value for the cost of the rental.
Vicki and Randi were excellent hosts. They even had some HQ coffee in the suite for brewing. It was delicious with the Colorado honey and the cream that Vicki brought down. The hosts were very helpful during our stay. They really went out of their way: lent me a windbreaker for our trip to Mauna Kea, let me print boarding passes, even got us pointed to an Urgent Care (only two blks. from their home) on New Year's Day when I came down with influenza. When I read their description of the property I kind of ignored the fact that their home was located on the Walua Trail: After walking the trail a few times I realized it is used by people from all over Kailua - Kona. It is a big deal to have a safe and clean place to walk/jog. Even the sections shared with local auto traffic have the most courteous drivers on the planet.
We'd rent from Vicki and Randi again in a minute. I even miss their little dog which stays at the upper level: the only time it came to the lower level was when I made a peanut butter sandwich - it never failed. It would just sit outside of the screen door and watch me eat it.
To wrap it up, I definitely feel the property is presented fairly by Vicki and Randy.

Thanks for giving us the chance to host you. And so glad that the flu didn't keep you from your visit to the top of Mauna Kea, Tony.
Vicki and Randy
Located on the Historic Walua Road walking trail, for biking and walking. One of our greatest features is a miles long trail for exercise of all sorts, at the cool elevation of 500 ft., right outside our door, with killer views all along it.
