Property description

Come up to the cool country climate, luxury of open space, superior relaxing quiet, gated security, nature, wild life, wood burning fireplace, and privacy both on the property and in the surrounding area.

A master suite with a cal-king bed is on one side of the ground floor, with two guest bedrooms on the opposite side for added privacy among your group. One guest room has a queen bed, the other a single. There is bedroom space for 5 people, plus an other full bed upstairs in the loft/TV area. Spacious, furnished outdoor decks in the front and back let you enjoy the outdoors in comfort.

The ranch is centrally located about half way between both Kona and Hilo, yet we enjoy daily trips to the Kohala Coast beaches for morning swimming. Convenient access to a wide range of Big Island adventures and site seeing from white sand beaches to the top of the highest mountain on earth, Mauna Kea, as measured from the sea floor.

We hope you enjoy!

Car: Necessary

Located on Saddle Road on the slopes of Mauna Kea, at a cool 5000 ft. elevation, in a gated and secure luxury ranch community, this location makes it easy to do everything or nothing at all. If relaxing at home and enjoying the views from every room in the house in the privacy of the ten acre spread are what you have in mind, this place is perfect. Or if your are feeling energetic, skip the driving altogether and take a country stroll through the wide open pasture land, eucalyptus forests, and trails that surround the ranch, over gently sloping terrain. Be sure to have your camera, live stock including horses, sheep, goats, cattle, donkeys reside in neighboring pastures while wild sheep, wild goat and the occasional wild pig can be seen in the distance. Countless game birds like pheasant, wild turkeys, and erkels scurry under foot. Native birds - to many to list,- and the ever present pue'o (native owl) swooping gracefully above making this property a photographer's and bird watcher's paradise. Exciting day trips away from the ranch include the hiking attractions that surround the high elevation rain forests at the foot of Mauna Kea. Or climb up to the summit by car (check conditions) that reaches 13,803 ft. (33,500 ft when measured from the sea floor, twice the height of Mt. Everest) and be amazed by the view. Or join one of the many guided tours that gaze into the heavens at night through the world class observatories at Mauna Kea's summit. In the winter months, play in the snow then come back to relax in the overstuffed chairs around a cozy fire place. If the beach sounds good, you are only a 30 minute drive from pristine white sandy beaches like Hapuna and Kauna 'oa at Mauna Kea Beach hotel. The full spectrum of ocean activities are available from snorkeling to surfing, to whale watching, to night diving with manta rays. The paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) town of Waimea is only a 15 minute country drive away. Here you will find grocery shopping, restaurants, and historical interests at the Parker Ranch Center. Some of our favorite day excursions include a day trip to the Waipio Valley overlook to take in the breathtaking view into a deep and dramatic valley fronted by a black sand beach and gleaming blue ocean. A trip over Saddle Road to Hilo for country market shopping on Saturdays and Wednesdays is a great way sample the best in Island produce and fresh cut exotic flowers. The town of Volcano is also easily within a day's reach to peer into the rim of Kilauea Crater. In an other direction, check out the fascinating ancient Hawaiian temple of Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site located in the small port village of Kawaihae. Look for the lunch wagon hidden on the property of Eddie Lau's Fish Market and grab an outstanding fresh fish burger and fries.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Ed is a harbor pilot, born and raised in Hawaii. He writes industry news in his spare time and plays the ukulele. Gini enjoys entrepreneurial interests at home after also having a sea going career, and surfs to keep fit throughout the year. Nina, the animal lover, plans to be a vet one day. We are all meticulous about the maintenance and care of our homes due to our love an commitment to our properties.

Why the Owner Chose Waikoloa Village:
The ranch property is our home-away-from-home, second to our Kailua residence. At our ranch house, we have found the perfect get-away from the sometimes hectic lifestyle of Oahu. Here we relax in peace and quiet with a sense of security and privacy, enjoy nature, the cooler climate, and soak in the luxury of space. As life long residents of Hawaii, we feel that the Big Island has the most to offer as far as beauty, culture and adventure. The ranch property is an outstanding location to do it all.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Be amazed, as we are every day, by the spectacular views from every room in the house. Watch the weather change, as distant wisps of clouds settle on the landscape both above and below. See the coastline from all of the front facing rooms, and snow covered Mauna Kea from the back. Sip coffee form the sunny and warm back deck in the morning sunshine, smell the lavender garden, and check the snow level on the mountain above.You may startle the wild birds. Pueo (native owls), wild turkeys, erkels, kolea (migrating golden plover from Alaska), have enjoyed our back yard, too. In the late afternoon, the front deck is a platform to view spectacular sunsets as the fiery ball of red lights up the sky and slowly sinks below the ocean horizon. Or sit inside and see the sunset light up the great room. Spend the day at a perfect white sand beach only 25 min away, come home to the comfort of a roaring fire an a cozy cool climate.
