Amazing week on the Big Island.
Amazing week on the Big Island.
This property on the Big Island of Hawaii is truly magnificent. It sits on hill top and overlooks the Waikoloa/Kohala coastline. We were there for 4 nights and 5 days and did not want to leave! The weather was perfect during our stay; day time was sunny and around 75 and nights were clear and around 55-60. There are two large TV's with digital cable but we barely used them. We spent the majority of our time gathered in the large eat-in kitchen and on the covered lanai. There are three wood burning fireplaces but we only used one of them (main one in the great room) and the owner made sure there was lots of firewood. The sunsets at the home are spectacular and makes for tons of photo opps. The property is large and secluded...the perfect country getaway. It's roughly a 30 minute drive to the nearest town so make sure to stock up on everything you need before getting there but the drive is well worth it. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a country getaway in Hawaii.

Why the Owner Chose Kamuela (Waimea):
This ranch style retreat is in the cool and picturesque mountains of Waiki`i Ranch. We enjoy the executive feel of the homes in this ranch subdivision along with the security offered by the ranch.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Waiki`i Ranch offers hours of walking on groomed horse trails accessible right outside the front door. You can walk for hours, exercise at the gym, play pool at the private ranch house, play tennis or watch a game of polo at the private polo field. There isn't enough time in the day to experience all that this area of the Big Island has to offer. Drive 15 mins. and you are in the heart of Paniolo Country where you will experience the history of Parker Ranch and its cowboys. Enjoy shopping and all the modern conveniences that are there for your use. Restaurants are abundant from local style family eateries to award winning five star restaurants.
