My daughter and I recently stayed in the Cowboy cottage. We instantly fell in love with this place! First of all, some reviewers comment on the location being too remote... not at all!!! I have traveled to the Big Island many many times and this is by far one of the best locations on the island if you like to... More

I've never been on a honeymoon before, but staying at the Puakea Ranch felt like one. We stayed in the James Cottage and loved the interiors, the comfortable beds, the steaming hot tub and private terrace. The starry nighttime sky hypnotized us. DEFINITELY STAY HERE.

My husband and I stayed in Wally on Puakea Ranch for 3 nights. It was one of the most memorable places to stay ever, and our favorite places to stay on our whole trip around the Big Island because it was so unique, charming and surrounded by nature. This was our honeymoon and it was the perfect place to be... More

Our family of 5 (3 older kids) loved staying at the ranch, having stayed on the island before we've rented several different houses down the coast. This is a wonderful break from the resort style touristy stay. We stayed in cowboy house, which had plenty of room for all of us. As we were there over christmas, Christie had set... More

Puakea was so absolutely amazing, just thinking back on our time there makes me relaxed and happy (which I find myself doing quite often). My husband, 10 year old daughter and I stayed in the Miles Away cottage on the first stop of a three leg, 10 day trip to the Big Island. Puakea was the best part of the... More

We've been here before but this was the first time we stayed at Yoshi's house. The sunset's on the lanai, the refreshing time spent in the pool and a house that had every kitchen item one would need was fantastic. Oh, and fresh eggs for breakfast every morning we could have asked for a better time. Can's wait to go... More

We loved our honeymoon stay at the “Miles Away” house. This was our first trip to Hawaii and we weren’t sure what to expect. The house was charming and the full kitchen made preparing our own meals fun and romantic. We did manage some sightseeing and exploring but much of our time was spent relaxing poolside to the sounds of... More

When we got back from our visit to the Big Island, everyone kept asking what the best thing we did was and my answer consistently was "it was staying at the ranch"! I loved the quiet and the history of the surrounding and the ability to allow my son to be as noisy as he wanted without "disturbing the neighbors".... More

My husband and I live in Oahu and this will be our go to place when we need to get away from now on. Truly felt like a home away from home. Josh and christy were awesome hosts! Took advantage of all this charming get away had to offer. Shared the cowboy house with good friends from the mainland and... More

Loved Puakea Ranch. A great alternative to the more traditional resorts. Our kids loved the ranch animals -- especially collecting farm-fresh eggs each morning for our breakfast -- and the adorable goats. Perfect for our families...we each had our own space (in individual houses/cottages) but also could share the ranch land and the swimming pool, etc. Felt like a great... More
