My wife and I made our first trip to Hawaii for our 30th wedding anniversary. We wanted a secluded place to enjoy our privacy. We nailed it with a week's stay at "Miles Away". The bungalow was perfect. A cool breeze every evening to sit outside on our lanai and watch the sun set. The most relaxing week we have... More

Loved our visit to the ranch! Great house, with horseback riding, watercolor painting, swimming, tree swings, fresh eggs, and close to lovely downtown Hawi -- just perfect. We can't wait to come back to this amazing property.

We just returned from a week at Puakea Ranch for our second honeymoon celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. It was wonderful in every way. From the moment you turn onto the unmarked gated drive into the ranch there is a wonderful peace and calm. The property is beautiful, perched on a hill overlooking the ocean, with a view of Maui...

We traveled to the Big Island for a dear friend's wedding. After a weekend in busy, tourist-focused Kona (amidst the Iron Man competitors...); we escaped the growing crowds to the North and stayed at this amazing destination: Puakea Ranch. Staying in the very private Mile's Away -- a turn-of-the-centery, restored bungalow; we had 2 bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen, a cozy... More

Hawaii is amazing but while it's always long in luxury lodging it can sometimes be short in character—that's why this spot is amazing. My family stayed in Yoshi's, which struck the perfect note between relaxed and luxurious. We chilled by the pool explored the area, picked up our fresh eggs each morning ....the exact sort of vibe we were looking... More

We spent 6 nights at Yoshi's House this past December. The house is at the top of a hill overlooking gardens and the ocean. We absolutely loved sitting on the wrap-around verandah, looking at the beautiful scenery. The house is open, bright and airy. The beds are comfortable. Everything is clean and in good working order. The pool was a... More

Our family has made numerous trips to Hawaii over the years, mostly staying at resorts (our favorites are the Hotel Hana Maui and the St. Regis Princeville) but for this trip we wanted a different type of experience, a family friendly set-up that would better suit 2 couples and a 4 1/2 month old baby. Yoshi's House sounded perfect from... More

Our family of five (with kids 12, 6 and 4) had a wonderful time at this charming ranch. Yoshi's House was a wonderful retreat for us, even though we live just 30 minutes away. It was an opportunity to really kick back, relax and enjoy the ranch life. The house was straight out of Country Living magazine and the new... More

This was our second visit to Puakea Ranch and it was amazing. All three of the houses we were in are lovely - Yoshi's House, Cowboy House and James Cottage. Totally relaxing for those that just wanted to hang out at the ranch but great location for touring the island. Great staff - arranged paddle boarding, deep sea fishing &... More

My Husband and I chose to get married at the Puakea Ranch in early October. This was truly the best decision we have ever made! Christie (Ranch owner) has thought of everything for both single house rentals and large events. We rented out all of the houses for three nights for our wedding and it was amazing. The ranch is...
