Far from the maddening crowds, on the northern tip of the Big Island, lies a quiet little getaway. Puakea Ranch is a beautiful and unique destination offering you simple luxuries, boutique style and eco-friendly accommodations in a private and serene setting.
Our four Historic Plantation Cottages are set amidst acres of rolling pastures and sweeping ocean views. The ranch was originally established in 1870, the Ranch and plantation was once a thriving community of plantation workers, cowboys and their families working the surrounding 2000 acres. Impeccably restored, these original Hawaiian bungalows are now available for your enjoyment.
We are set at 400 foot elevation with an average temperature of 85º and consider our location to be perfect for exploring all the Big Island has to offer. We are just 2 miles north, of the charming historic towns of Hawi and Kapaau, offering art galleries, unique shops, restaurants and endless activities.
We are a 15 min. drive to Kawaihae Harbor, with the legendary Mauna Kea Beach Resort and Hapuna Beach just beyond. We are an easy and direct 45 minute drive from Kona International Airport.
The Ranch will delight and indulge you with unsurpassed charm, wrapped in comfortable unpretentious, luxury.

We had our intimate wedding here and it was perfect! Everything about this place is so romantic. We felt tucked away in the island and loved waking up to the geckos and the chickens clucking away in the fields. Lovely for any wedding or getaway!
Simply magical! After discovering this gem through our online research there was no other place to have our intimate destination wedding - the new outdoor pavilion is an amazing reception space after getting married under the kissing tree. Loved it!!
We had a beautiful, intimate ceremony at the ranch, it was perfect! We loved staying at Yoshi's House. Such a beautiful bungalow, with the breeze flowing throughout the house, the horses right in the field behind us, and fresh eggs every morning! <3
Everytime I am at Puakea Ranch, I feel the essence of Hawai'i. Far deeper, more quiet and more real than any hotel experience, Puakea Ranch takes me home to old Hawai'i... a place of peace, connection with nature, adn aloha.
Our wedding at Puakea Ranch was nothing short of a fairytale! A truly magical place! http://www.weddingchicks.com/2013/08/12/rustic-bohemian-elopement/
