Property description

We are located on the beautiful Hamakua Coast, nestled at 3500 feet on the remote & privately owned Kukaiau Ranch. Day trip anywhere on the island and come home each night to the serenity that only a 29 acre property can offer. Or spend a quiet day on the ranch with a blanket and a picnic basket. We have perfect sleeping weather here year around - no hotel noise, no coqui frogs. A large fire pit sits between the main house and the cottage and is open to all guests; an ideal location for star gazing.

A place where you can truly get away from it all. We are off the grid and living a self sustainable lifestyle with all the modern conveniences! Come visit us for a tour.

The Big island is often referred to as a 'miniature continent' and is an excellent choice for a vacation destination. This island has the only active volcano in Hawaii, snow capped mountains, tropical rain forests, barren deserts, waterfalls, valleys, and beautiful beaches...

We are nestled at 3500 ft elevation on the beautiful Hamakua Coast. The Hamakua Ranch House sits on 30 incredibly serene acres with abundant wildlife including wild turkey, pheasant, and other native birds.

The view is absolutely spectacular from anywhere on this remarkable property. From the front porch you can see the beautiful summit of Mauna Kea (you can see snow on the peak at times). On the back decks, you can sun, read, have cocktails or just relax as you look out across rolling pasture with koa and ohia trees and see all the way down to the ocean; it is hard to tell where the sky and ocean meet. You can also see Haleakala on Maui when the conditions are right.

The Hamakua Ranch House is conveniently located with unlimited choices of things to see and do on the Big Island. Whether you choose to visit historic Honokaa, see the breathtaking views of Waipio Valley, or head west through historic Waimea to the Kona Coast for the beautiful beaches, travel south to see magical waterfalls, or visit Kilauea volcano, you can do it all from this location. Explore the Big Island during the day, and return to heaven each night to relax and enjoy true peace and quiet.

On clear nights, you will feel like you can touch the stars as you sit on your own deck or gather with us and other guests around the fire pit. This is beyond doubt a getaway place that you will remember and want to return to again and again…

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We like to say that this house found us! Our family was quite content living a block from Kailua Beach on Oahu. We were on vacation and looking at the possibility of purchasing a few acres to someday build a cabin on for weekends and retirement. After we saw this spectacular property we returned to the Oahu and neither one of us could stop thinking about it. This property spoke to both of us - we adjusted our lives to make this dream come true. The rest is history... Tim and Terri Dolan have been married 27 years and are living their dream. Tim spent 20 years in the Marine Corps flying anything they would give him the keys for.. They have two children, Chelsea & Eric. Tim loves to work outside, exercise, read, go to the beach and paddle. Terri enjoys gardening and organically growing some of the food eaten on the ranch, all the ranch animals, reading, decorating, cooking and generally spoiling our guests. On her day off you can usually find her at the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Hamakua Coast:
The Paniolo Cottage is furnished in Hawaiian Cowboy decor. It's large living area has a 47' flatscreen television with premium satellite channels, a wood burning stove with ocean view bay windows and a dining area. The cottage is equipped with a full kitchen and everything you may need to feel at home. The separate bedroom boasts a king sized cowhide bed, equipped with a memory foam mattress and the finest linens available. There is also a private bath. The lanai of the Paniolo cottage is where you may find yourself most of the time. Look to your left and see the summit of Mauna Kea and to your right and see rolling green pastures of Ohia and Koa trees that lead your eyes all the way down to the ocean.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
A fully furnished, unique living space - The Paniolo Cottage has a ocean view, full kitchens, private bathroom and is detached from the main house. The cottage sleeps 3.
