This was my first trip to Hawaii. I of course had many ideas in my head of how it would be and what I would do. I never really gave too much thought to the actual location or experience of where I was going to be staying until the very end of the planning process. A friend invited me to...

This is my third trip to the ranch. Every time I come I just want to be here more! Christie keeps making things better with each stay. Josh, the all around ranch boss takes great care of the ranch and the visitors. Lise, the gardener tells us all about the different plants and grows an organic garden which we eat...

We just stayed at this incredible ranch, had a wonderful time, and never wanted to leave but instead to just enjoy the views and the carefully preserved authenticity of the paniolo lifestyle with some lovely upgrades like a gorgeous bath house and luxurious bedding! We woke to birds singing and sun streaming through coconut fronds and plumeria flowers. The smells...

This is what Hawaii is all about. We have traveled the big island for six years now, and can't say there is a place quite like this. The old farm houses are re-done in the most perfect way. The bath house was really impressive with a beautiful copper bathtub. At night you enjoy the peaceful breeze going through the windows....

Reading that you have visited our island so many times and we are your new favorite, just made my week! Thank you. Each day, everyone involved in Puakea Ranch, do their very best to create a very special experience for our guests....

Puakea Ranch is located in a beautiful part of the island with wonderful beaches to visit and a perfect place from which to explore. The downside to Puakea Ranch was that our cabin had blood-stained mattresses with thousands of tiny rust stains dotting the mattresses, consistent with bed bugs. Bed bugs are nothing a traveler looks forward to and so...

It is very unfortunate that this guest decided to post this review. The fact is, we don't have Bed bugs and we never have and our mattress are certainly not blood stained. This couple needed to shorten their stay. When we could not refund them for the nights they could not stay, they were very upset. So they posted this...

With views of the ocean, a constant warm breeze, fragrant flowers blooming, a fruit and vegetable garden, a pool, fresh eggs, horseback riding, and so much more my family was so happy. This is a bit like luxury camping but you have the best luxuries: a 4-poster bed, a private bath, and your own washer/dryer. About a 30 minute or...

Puakea Ranch exceeded all our expectations. We went with our two teenage daughters and it was the trip of a lifetime in large part due to the ranch. The setting is spectacular - breathtakingly beautiful during the day, at sunset and at night when the sky is blanketed with stars. More stars than I have ever seen. Staying in a...

Myself and my girlfriend were lucky enough to stay in Puakea for a week. Peace and quiet, beautiful views and even more beautiful cottages. The ranch is a fantastic place to explore, with more surprises to be found and new animal friends to meet! Everything from the bed in the bedroom to the wash room has been given their own...

My partner and I have recently returned from a week long stay at James Cottage - Puakea Ranch and we are both still on cloud nine. Traveling from London, we couldn't wait to get there and relax, and Puakea Ranch offered the perfect place to unwind. The cottage is just beautiful. The ranch is a short drive to the beach,...

To celebrate my 40th birthday with my family, I was looking for just the right vacation spot. I wanted a secluded setting, to ride horses almost every day, and have access to ocean beaches and beautiful warm weather.

“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.
