Our visit got off to a bad start when we arrived after a 12-hour trip with an exhausted baby to find the caretaker and others staying in the cottage we rented and no record of our prepaid reservation. Eventually they found the reservation and cleaned the cottage and after about an hour we were let in. But over the next... More

Completely restored historic Plantation Era Ranch. Individual cabins. Sustainable gardens, horseback riding, swimming pools. A quiet respite from Kohala Coast mega resorts. Great for families and the perfect romantic hideaway.

We stayed in Yoshi's house and on arrival was taken back by the sheer beauty of the Ranch. On driving up the gravel drive you could see how well the grounds were maintained and we were met by Christie and the groundsman who were very welcoming. Yoshis house was immaculate, clean and stunning. The separate shower room was large and... More

We are a three generation family with grandparents on the East Coast meeting children and grandchildren living in Australia. Our six-year-old granddaughter loves animals. It did not take her long to declare, "I do not like Puakea Ranch, I LOVE Puakea Ranch". She had free roam of the place, and we had to reminder her to be home before the... More

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
