Fodor's Review

Four beautifully restored ranch houses and bungalows occupy this historic country estate in Hawi, where guests enjoy their own private swimming pools, horseback riding, round-the-clock concierge availability, and plenty of fresh fruit to pick from the orchards. Listed on the State Historic Register, Puakea Ranch pays homage to the four generations of cowboys and plantation workers who once lived on the property. The two-bedroom Yoshi's House sleeps six and has ocean views

from the lanai, plus a lava-rock swimming pool. Cowboy House is a three-bedroom former bunkhouse that sleeps six, while the Miles Away bungalow provides two bedrooms and its own private dipping pool. A large studio, James Cottage shares a swimming pool with Cowboy House, and also has its own private hot tub. Decorated with original local art depicting the property, each home has its own kitchen, barbecue grills, and washer-dryer. The ranch is 10 minutes to the closest public beach, plus there's free Wi-Fi and long-distance land lines. For a small fee, the innkeepers provide customized itineraries and maps, and pre-arrival grocery shopping can be arranged. The ranch recently added two upcountry cottages in Waimea to its accomodations.
