We returned to Puakea Ranch after a visit a few years ago and found it just as charming and relaxing as before. Yoshi's House is private and secluded with scenic views of the ocean and an afternoon rainbow or two. All of the linens and towels are top notch and the kitchen well-stocked. We enjoyed relaxing at the pool in...

We booked the Puakea Ranch and all buildings on the premises, for three days in September for our daughter’s wedding. While we had hoped for a beautiful wedding memory, we do not have that at Puakea. Communications went back and forth with the owner, Christie Cash and the caretaker Josh well in advance. I arrived before my daughter to find...

We just came back from staying in the Miles Away Cottage with a private pool and total privacy. With views of the ocean, hammock, tree swing, and japaenese bath house, our cottage was beyond expectations. We cannot wait to return one day! Very kid fiendly too with the friendly farm animals! Love love love this ranch- high recommend!

My husband and I just returned from Puakea Ranch and could not be more happy with our stay! My husband and I stayed in James’ Cottage for the week and we rented out the whole ranch for 3 days for our closest friends to stay with us as we were on the Big Island for our wedding celebration. I stumbled...

Our family stayed in Cowboys house in late February. The house was beautifully decorated and the beds were super comfortable. Being on this ranch was such a peaceful experience, being from LA where it's so noisy and congested this place was the perfect escape. My daughter had a great time with the farm animals and watching the horse roam around...

We had the great privilege of staying at the Cowboy House at Puakea Ranch this February. The house and entire property were absolutely charming. The sheep would greet us when we came home. The duck waddled behind us when we went to the pool. The sheets were luxurious and the trade winds blew into the room all night long. The...

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful property for three nights at the end of a week long trip to the big island. It is a gorgeous property and we loved the animals! We stayed in the smallest cottage, Jame's Cottage. The design and style of the interior and exterior is absolutely beautiful! I loved the high bed with...

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...
