“Nothing to add, just stay there!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2007

I really have nothing to add to the prior reviews, other than to say that, after our second stay at Silver Oaks Ranch, we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else other than at Silver Oaks! RIck and Amy kept us stocked with all of the very fresh eggs and papaya we could eat, and were always available if we wanted a chat, yet gave us plenty of privacy.

We stayed at the Ranch House cottage, which has a great hot tub on the private deck. Personally, I love sitting in the hot tub at night, but the other cottage (Ranch View) probably has the slightly better, more panoramic view. Just a matter of preference: I'll stick with Ranch House again next time.

The grounds are lovely, the goats are unbearably cute, and the place has a serenity and quiet that is quite seductive.

Now that the cottages have wifi, there is absolutely nothing to 'ding' them on....Silver Oaks gets absolutely my highest possible recommendation.

Stayed March 2007

We spent five fantastic days at Silver Oaks in January 2007. We had read the reviews and did not believe that anywhere could be as good as everyone made out ( a born sceptic). However we were overwhelmed with our stay and cannot say enough about the location and the fantastic service we had. Starting with the care package (bagels, cereal, milk, coffee, youghurt, eggs, fruit, etc.) through to the use of all of the beach gear , all of the facilities, hot tub and the use of a laptop with wireless internet. The room (or should I stay suite) was excellent, well maintained, clean, and became our home for the short time we were on the Big Island. The surroundings were peaceful and always entertaining with the goats, birds, and of course the wild turkeys (however we did see Amy slipping them some feed so maybe they should be called semi-wild).
Overall we cannot say enough about Siver Oaks and the warm hospitality and caring that we received from Rick and Amy. I am afraid that when the word gets out it will be difficult to get another booking because I doubt if there is anywhere better to stay on Hawaii. Thanks for the great time, Rick and Amy.

A welcome basket that lasted most of the week. An ear to ear view of the Kona coast from the deck. Cool evenings 3,500 feet above Kailua. Peaceful and quiet, spotlessly clean. Unlimited eggs, bananas and papayas from the ranch, bottled water and soft drinks in the fridge. Hosts willing to do anything to make the stay perfect. Countless restaurants nearby, with the hosts' own reviews and directions. Directions to nearby forest and beach hikes and snorkelling. Guest laundry in the carport right outside the door. Laptop computer with wireless internet. Donkey. All the water toys. Host's professional quality photographs on the walls. Allowed to leave our stuff in the cottage when we went to a beach hotel for a night and to the other side of the island for a couple of nights. Thanks, Rick and Amy, for a great time.

Just got back from a 5 night stay at the Silver Oaks Ranch. Amy and Rick are wonderful hosts... always there to make sure we had everything we needed but always respectful of our privacy. We stayed in the Ranch House which was huge and had every comfort of home. I was particularly impressed that they had a laptop they let us borrow with free wireless internet. The welcome basket was great: chocolate covered mac nuts, eggs from the farm, Kona coffee, and they even restocked our papya supply all week. It was a lot of fun to just walk around the grounds and see the animals. The dwarf goats might be the highlight of my trip. Would certainly recommend Silver Oaks to friends and I hope to be back soon!

The cottage was perfect for my family of 3. Rick and Amy are the nicest folks in the world, beyond helpful when it comes to being hosts. Can't say enough good things about staying at the Silver Oaks Ranch.

It may seem hard to believe, but all these amazing reviews are accurate. My husband and I spent 10 days at the Ranch right before Thanksgiving. Think of it like having your own home (ours was the cottage with the hot tub!) ideally located in Kona, and amazing neighbors (i.e., amy and rick) who have lived there a long time and know all the best places to eat, snorkel, and spend your days. Oh, and those same neighbors lend you all their beach gear, give you unbelievable fresh eggs and fruit every morning, send over their housekeeper while you're out...all the while never being too overbearing and giving you all the privacy you want. This is an ideal place for any type of Big Island visit. Stay here and just go to the fancy resorts for dinners and spa visits...you won't be sorry!

We stayed during October. I cant begin to say enough good things about Rick and Amy and their property. We had every thing we needed and then some. We traveled to two other islands and that ment getting booked throuh other agencies and owners. It was a nightmare. Using Silver Oaks Ranch was great. I did not have to deal with all the stuff the other places wanted. I would go back to Silver Oaks again and I definitly recomend it to anyone looking for a clean quiet place to stay on Hawaii.

  • Liked — It was clean, quiet and the view was great
  • Disliked — It has no air conditioner
  • Tips/Secrets — Book with them its so easy
