Frommer’s Hawaii simply said “Book this place” and how true that is.
It is located just off Highway 190, overlooking Kona and the coast, thus providing good views of the coast, and often outstanding sunset views. It is 1500 feet above sea level, so that nights are comfortably cool. And yet it is only a 10-15 minute drive to Ali’I Drive
Our accommodation was excellent – we were in The Ranch House Cottage which had a full kitchen, separate sitting room and bedroom and walk in wardrobe. A daily breakfast is not provided, but there is a welcome basket containing a wide range of foods.
Our cottage had a TV and DVD player, as well as a computer. There are very useful things available such as snorkelling equipment, and beach towels, and cool boxes, and laundry facilities. We were provided with a mobile phone, when it turned out we couldn’t use ours in America
Amy and Rick are very helpful with advice on places to visit. It is very private: you are left to yourselves, but Amy and Rick are readily available if needed.
We have no hesitation in recommending Silver Oaks Ranch. We would definitely stay there again, should we visit Kona in the future.

Air is like whipping cream, birds are singing their paradise songs, the little goats accompany them from time to time, trees and plants dance happily by blooming with this song.Indulging in Silver Oaks Ranch. I saw that pine apples actually grow as bushes not on a palm tree! Our room was clean and cozy. The welcoming basket was full of fruits and there were free drinks/water and eggs-the eggs are so special! I cooked yummy brekfasts every day and there was orange juice, milk and yoghurt+equiped kitchen! Emy and Rick are great hosts who love people, animals and nature. I recommend this place. The Ranch is on the hill and it is cooler than in hot Kona which made us sleep like babies :)

Room tip: visit Hapuna beach-1 hour away from Ranch-the best beach near Kona, we checked all of them.

Our family of 5 stayed for 5 nights at the amazing Silver Oaks Ranch in April 2012. We had 2
lovely cottages - the Garden View and the Resort View. We absolutely loved our time here. Our fabulous hosts the Deckers have thought of everything. The fridge was stocked with orange juice , milk and fresh eggs. There was also cereal, bread, jam and coffee. The free wi-fi was an added bonus particularly with 2 teenage boys! Beach gear was all provided including snorkels, flippers, and chairs.We all fell in love with the animals especially the gorgeous goats (and my daughter even got to name a baby goat!) Amy was lovely with our children involving them in the morning and afternoon feeding. We loved everything about Silver Oaks and would highly recommend it to anyone. The only problem was that we weren't able to bring any of the goats back to Australia. Our 9 year old daughter did not want to leave, there were a lot of tears on the last morning. Thank you Amy, Rick and Jennifer for the being such wonderful hosts and for making our stay in Kona such a memorable one.

As of my writing this review, there are 99% 5 star ratings and one 4 star rating on Silver Oaks Ranch. I am adding another 5 star to the reviews. The basics are all great, but what really put the ranch over the top were the hosts. Rick and Amy made us feel like family. They went above and beyond to help us (we had some travel problems) and make sure we had everything we needed. They also gave us the kind of local knowledge that made us feel confident in that we saw all we could with the time we had. And by chance we had the added luck to be able to spend an afternoon photographing some local sights with Rick. Simply great!

The property is located above Kona, basically it is far enough away to be quite and relaxing but still close enough to conveniently get to the airport or to Kona (maybe a 10 min. drive). View from the property towards Kona and the ocean is just perfect, especially at sunset.

The apartment we stayed in was very spacious had a nice full kitchen, computer / wifi, and hot tub outside. Really all one could ask for. Rick and Amy are wonderful hosts and always had great advice for us on anything on the islands, which restaurants to go to, what to see, etc. There is a fridge stocked with water, sodas and so on between the two unites in the guest house. Also there are boogie boards, snorkel gear and other beach stuff you can use. So if you are looking for a nice and quite place with lots of space/privacy and perfect hosts this is definitly the place to go. We would definitly stay there again.
