Good location, great view. Had to stay in the dark from 6 PM or suffocate. The window screen are not efficient, small flies by the cup, need to wash all the dishes in the morning so needed to keep all lights out. Could not read or knit at night. And then tried to eat outside and got my dinner wasted...

I recently booked Puakea Ranch for my wedding and I am really pleased with how our event turned out. It's $$$ but it's worth every cent. You get a quality venue that's unique and beautiful. I think (and hope) our guests enjoyed it as much as we did. Thankfully, the weather worked out and it didn't rain on the big...

Old Hawaii feeling. Authentic and a very special place. Beautiful views, sunset and Yoshi's cottage truly exceptional. Private pool, Japanese style bathhouse and lovely cottage with fully equipped kitchen. Sunset magazine thanks for the recommendation! Christie Cash thanks for a slice of paradise. Big Aloha

We chose Puakea Ranch for our small and intimate wedding ceremony. We stayed in the cowboy house, while our guests occupied the James Cottage and Miles Away. The fresh eggs, herbs, and mangos straight off the trees were a delightful part of the experience as were the sweet animals living on the property. We highly recommend Puakea Ranch for anyone...

Our family of four stayed in Yoshi's house in March, and it was the highlight of our stay on the big island. Christie was extremely helpful in answering any initial questions we had and setting everything up. We arrived very late at night to a beautiful house and we felt at home almost immediately. Jackie was there the next morning...

I am remiss in writing this review. My wife and I were fortunate enough to spend a wonderful week at Puakea Ranch and in Yoshi's House the end of January. Christie was amazing to work with, 100% positive and prompt with her responses. We had total privacy, and enjoyed the pool very much The bath house was fantastic. We loved...

We stay at a lot of rental homes throughout the U.S., and my wife and I agree this is the best so far. Mind you, we had our reservations at first because too many good reviews sometimes leave doubt. The Ranch has 5 units to choose from; we stayed in what is known as the Cowboy House (which at one...

If you want an authentic Hawaiian experience in an unforgettable setting and with great amenities, not a resort that could be anywhere, Puakea Ranch is the place to go. We stayed in Yoshi's House, gazed at sunsets from the front lanai and the south coast of Maui from the rear lania. We grilled nearly every night, bathed in our dedicated...

I might regret this -- this positively reviewing such a gloriously discreet bastion of beauty, tranquility, and elegant grace. For Puakea Ranch is our spot to vacation and we'd hate to lose our rental spot to more tourists! We dream all year about our few weeks at Yoshi's House or Miles Away as we work here in Wine Country. I'd...

We will be staying at Puakea in March for our anniversary in March, but we have been trying to stay there each March for the last three years. I had read about the Ranch in the Big Island newspaper, and when we saw a stay as an auction item for Hawaiian Islands Land Trust we bought it outright!! Unfortunately for...
