              Every bear should have a day bed like this for lounging! 06/08/2009

              VRBO Bear stayed here:


              For a welcome tonic from urban life, come and stay at this scenic and peaceful property on the Big Island’s Kohala Coast. It’s the perfect place for relaxing with a good book, splashing lazily in the water during the heat of the day, or just enjoying the breezes and doing nothing.

              Puakea Ranch covers multiple acres, so we had all the privacy and space a bear could want. The working ranch featured two horses, free-ranging chickens, and two of the friendliest dogs you could meet. A special treat was picking up fresh eggs from the chicken coop. Between the animals, the pool, the hammock, and the tree swing, there was plenty of built-in entertainment for all of us.

              Originally built in 1949, the house was clearly designed with tropical living in mind. The elevated living space as well as the window and doors on every side of the home provided maximum cross-ventilation. The house was set far enough away from the main road that the infrequent traffic is barely unnoticeable, and yet near enough to the ocean to take in the nice view and ocean breezes.

              The owner’s attention to detail was evident throughout the property. Bathrooms were supplied with locally-made soaps. The garage was generously provisioned with beach chairs, floaties, and other beach toys. The house was well-stocked with books for both adult and children. A drawer was filled with a first-aid kit, hydrocortisone, sunscreen, aloe for sunburns — everything we might need on vacation. The kitchen even had child-size utensils. This home takes the “family-friendly” label seriously!

              Furnishings were high quality and in keeping with the historic nature of the house. Our bed was so lovely we would have happily brought it back to our own home if we could! There were also abundant seating options both inside and out. Our favorite was the large daybed with great views of the horses and the ocean. For adult pampering, the separate bath house provided a huge soaking tub and a shower with multiple shower heads. The spa-like environment was the perfect place to relax after the cub was put to bed.

              If you need provisions (as bears do, sometimes), Puakea Ranch is just 2 miles south of Hawi Town. Hawi Town is small but has all the basics including a grocery store, ice-cream and coffee shop, and several nice restaurants. Be sure to pick up 100% Kona coffee at the Kohala Coffee Mill in town!

              From the house, the famous white sand beaches at Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beach were an easy drive south. On the way, stop by Kawaihae Harbor for yummy (and affordable) eats.

              This rental had so many wonderful features we couldn’t fit them all in this review. Come and experience them for yourself!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: With a passion for historic preservation and a desire to raise our children in a rural environment, we relocated form Venice Beach, CA to The Big Island and began the restoration or our Historic Puakea Ranch Property on the Kohala cost. We enjoy tending to the gardens, chickens, cows and horses at the ranch that allow our friends, family and vacationing guests to enjoy a truly unforgettable Hawaiian vacation.

              Why the Owner Chose Hawi:
              The Ranch is a very important historic site. Once a thriving Hawaiian settlement, later a plantation homestead and working cattle ranch, the property is steeped in natural beauty and so close to the ocean, Hawi town and the best beaches on the island. The natural beauty of our 100 year old trees, ancient rock walls, surrounded by sweeping ocean views sets this property apart from absolutely everything else. It is truly one of a kind. Restoring this historic property and uncovering the deep history here has been an absolute joy. Being able to share the ranch with others makes it that much more special. This property deserves to be experienced and enjoyed.

              The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
              The ranch is set on a beautiful and very private location, yet just 2 minutes to great local restaurants, art galleries, activities and the best beaches on the island. Our guests enjoy simple pleasures like swimming, relaxing in the hammocks, collecting fresh eggs from our chickens, picking fresh herbs out of our gardens, visiting with our horses and hiking the ranch grounds any time. The ranch is wonderful for families with children as they can roam freely on the without worry. The ranch is a private oasis filled with wonder, beauty and must have luxuries like the most comfortable beds and the finest linens, fully equipped kitchens and spa like bath houses. After all, you are on vacation.
