COVID 19- Reopening Update
We sincerely hope all our past and future guests are remaining safe during these uncertain times. We feel so fortunate to be living on the Big Island of Hawaii but miss our family and friends on the mainland and abroad. We are not sure when we may see you again, but we know we eventually will.
As most of you remember, we managed to survive the slowdown of tourism in 2018 when Kilauea erupted in Leilani Estates. Just as we were starting to figure out what the “new normal” would look like COVID- 19 erupted around the world. We have been hanging on hoping to re-open, but not too early as we still want to protect our island home and think about not only our neighbors, but our future guests.
The state of Hawaii is still requiring a 14 day quarantine for out of state visitors, but starting August 1st they will waive the 14 day quarantine if you take a valid COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to your trip and show proof of a negative result. We are committed to reopening on August 1, 2020 to welcome guests back to our island home as well.
We have advanced sanitizing and cleaning procedures in place. We are working on providing a small local menu from a personal chef who will deliver directly to our guests at the ranch. Our morning breakfast menu will be delivered either the night before or morning of (which ever you prefer) directly to your room as we will not be doing a community breakfast in the morning until further notice. We have been busy building firepits around the property for guests to enjoy the outdoors in the late afternoon/evenings after exploring the surrounding areas and we are considering a BBQ area for guests to be able to grill their own items if they don’t want to go out to eat. As always, Lucy and the gang will be roaming the property and available for guests to feed and interact with.
We look forward to welcoming you back and providing the service we are known for, even if it’s in a different capacity than before! Aloha! Theresa & Randy
