Puakea Ranch is magical. Our family has been four times over the past five years. The property is gorgeous. I'm a photographer, and some of my favorite portraits of my children and wife have been taken at Puakea. The photos are special because of the gorgeous light, the lush backgrounds and the warm smiles that come from being relaxed and...

My wife and I stayed here in December, and I wanted to share our story in case it might be helpful to others looking for a place to stay. We love family-run boutique lodging, and have stayed in this type of place many times (a couple of all-time favorites: Manka's in Inverness California and Acacia Cliffs in Lake Taupo, New...

Good location, great view. Had to stay in the dark from 6 PM or suffocate. The window screen are not efficient, small flies by the cup, need to wash all the dishes in the morning so needed to keep all lights out. Could not read or knit at night. And then tried to eat outside and got my dinner wasted...

I recently booked Puakea Ranch for my wedding and I am really pleased with how our event turned out. It's $$$ but it's worth every cent. You get a quality venue that's unique and beautiful. I think (and hope) our guests enjoyed it as much as we did. Thankfully, the weather worked out and it didn't rain on the big...

Old Hawaii feeling. Authentic and a very special place. Beautiful views, sunset and Yoshi's cottage truly exceptional. Private pool, Japanese style bathhouse and lovely cottage with fully equipped kitchen. Sunset magazine thanks for the recommendation! Christie Cash thanks for a slice of paradise. Big Aloha

We chose Puakea Ranch for our small and intimate wedding ceremony. We stayed in the cowboy house, while our guests occupied the James Cottage and Miles Away. The fresh eggs, herbs, and mangos straight off the trees were a delightful part of the experience as were the sweet animals living on the property. We highly recommend Puakea Ranch for anyone...

Our family of four stayed in Yoshi's house in March, and it was the highlight of our stay on the big island. Christie was extremely helpful in answering any initial questions we had and setting everything up. We arrived very late at night to a beautiful house and we felt at home almost immediately. Jackie was there the next morning...

I am remiss in writing this review. My wife and I were fortunate enough to spend a wonderful week at Puakea Ranch and in Yoshi's House the end of January. Christie was amazing to work with, 100% positive and prompt with her responses. We had total privacy, and enjoyed the pool very much The bath house was fantastic. We loved...

We stay at a lot of rental homes throughout the U.S., and my wife and I agree this is the best so far. Mind you, we had our reservations at first because too many good reviews sometimes leave doubt. The Ranch has 5 units to choose from; we stayed in what is known as the Cowboy House (which at one...

“No AC. Cowboy House has an extra room with indoor bath for additional couple. Miles Away best for Bride & Groom”

“While we didn't see the other units, our guess is that all would meet the same quality standards found in the Cowboy House.”
  • One of the best sunsets ever; photos shot within a 100 ft. of the home where we stayed.
  • Front of the Cowboy House. View of Pacific Ocean where we saw whales every day.
