I stayed at the Silver Oaks Ranch (in the Garden Cottage) for 4 weeks in October/November, 2010 during a month long internship in Kona. Absolutely everything about my stay was wonderful. At the ranch you will be provided with tons of space and privacy, within an easy 10-15 minute drive to downtown Kona. The Garden Cottage is the smallest of their guest houses, but it is well equipped with a hot plate, microwave, mini-frig, bbq grill, iron and ironing board, furnished patio, carport, washer and dryer, beach/snorkeling equipment, cable tv, dvd player, laptop with internet access, and more. The larger guest houses have more space and full kitchens, but the Garden Cottage was perfect for my needs. Amy and Rick are gracious hosts, and went out of their way to make sure my stay was a pleasant one. It is obvious they have put much thought into providing everything their guests could possibly need and want, and encouraged me multiple times throughout my stay to let them know if there was anything else I needed. They are also very knowledgeable about the island and were a great help in planning several day trips. The views from the property are awesome (especially at sunset), and the animals are great (though out of the way, if you're not an animal-lover as I am). I will echo the previous reviews that the fresh eggs are delicious. This place is truly a gem and I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
