I was lucky to have spent five nights in Yoshi's house with a group of friends. I still have a glow from the memories of last weeks stay.

The big Island is lovely. The town of Hawi is a gem. The Island folks are so warm and inviting. Puakea Ranch could be as perfect as all the reviews if only...

Oh, this same couple who posted on Aug. 12th. If any of what they are saying was even remotely true, surly at least one more of the 85 other reviews would mention the same things. Everything they are saying is simply not true and they...More

Aloha JeriLG, Our ranch land is part of Puakea Ranch, LLC. We have been impacted by the increased wedding/Party/Event business of Lot #1 which is zoned Agriculture/20 acres+. There have been numerous violations with Hawaii County since 2009. We are aware of the lack of character and un scrupulpus business practices that you stated over the years. Your experience read like a screenplay of a bad movie.
We were not surprised when we read it. Thank you for your honesty standing up to the corrupt owner of PR.

I wish others had reviewed honestly. There is no way we were the first. Christie told us in writing to submit five five star reviews and our funds that were illegally taken could be partially returned. I reported her to Trip Advisor. If people are choosing based on reviews, it needs to be honest,
