  • A very peaceful place. Love being there. A place to just unwind to forget about everything.
  • The Parker Ranch is a fascinating story of an amazing family for generations. A must visit to just understand how the cattle industry in Hawaii is a blessing to this community. Very inspiring.
  • Very well done and interesting history of the ranch presented. Very relaxing and beautiful setting.
  • Beautiful ranch and the visitors Center is very nice. I like how they've kept up the house and the artifacts.
  • Didn't realize it before we arrived, but apparently John Parker was a great craftsman. As an amateur woodworker, Mana Hale had me drooling over the extensive use of Koa, some of luthier quality curl!
