We had such a lovely time staying in the James Cottage at Puakea Ranch. What a special place, we didn't want to leave. The cottage was very comfortable, sparkling clean, and had nice crisp white sheets. The property is gorgeous, peaceful and relaxing. Every morning we had our breakfast of fresh papaya picked from the nearby trees and farm fresh...

My family and I had the most amazing time at Puakea Ranch! The cottages where very clean and had first rate finishes. The grounds where well groomed, but not overly manicured, with many paths to explore. We especially loved the garden from which we picked for our nightly dinners from. My toddler son enjoyed the play room with many toys...

You simply haven't lived until you've stayed at Puakea Ranch. We had the pleasure to stay in Yoshi's House and Miles Away cottages, both appointed with private swimming pools and bathhouses. Quiet, comfortable and secluded, Yoshi's house offers lanai-style living, easy kitchen, a full bath indoors and full bath house. We could have stayed forever! Located near Hawi Town on...

We rented the Cowboy House for 3 nights recently. It's wonderful to stay in a place so full of history and restored to reflect its historic background but with all the modern touches. It takes a while to settle into such peaceful surroundings after arriving from a big resort but we all loved it right away.The location is perfect. Hawi...

We have been home a week now and the memories of staying at Puakea are sustaining us. We were so fortunate to stay at this ranch. For a short time, we were a part of the community. Hawi and Kapa’au are so laid back with wonderful people, and we received quite warm welcomes when we mentioned we were guests as...

My husband and I visited Puakea Ranch in July 2013 and enjoyed our cottage, but one aspect of the trip still bothers me two years later. On the last night of our stay, I was using the hair dryer that THEY provided and it blew the circuit for the bathroom (the lights and the hairdryer were the only things on...

I was so surprised to read this review today, from a guest who says they stayed with us over two year ago but decided to post a negative report on something we have no control over. (circut blowing) The Puakea Ranch host lives on the ranch just a short walk from all the cottages. Typically our host can be found...

I read about Puakea Ranch in Sunset magazine years ago and have now visited twice with a third reservation this Fall. My first visit I stayed in Cowboy House. Very charming. My second visit I stayed in Miles Away. Also very charming. Puakea is a special place and should not be be compared to a luxury resort. It's on a...

We stayed with the family (10 People) at the Puakea Ranch in June 2015. We were greeted warmly by a herd of horses and eventually the caretaker. It is a very quiet and peaceful place. We stayed in two houses on the ranch, Cowboy House and Yoshi House. Both houses were very clean and comfortable. I highly recommend the shower...

If you want a quiet, lush and amazing experience then Puakea Ranch is the place for you. I hesitate to write this review because this is a gem and I would prefer it remain hidden. The Ranch: located on the way to Haw'i, it is out of the way but still close to the quaint village of Haw'i. Lots of...

We arrived in Hawi and decided we wanted to extend our stay. Scrambling to find a place, we found "Wally" at Puakea Ranch had two nights available. Having been pioneers of the Glampering movement (we once restored a 1950's Willys truck that towed our handcrafted gypsy wagon), we took to Wally like peas and carrots. Sweet, tiny home living at...

“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.
