About the Property

Private & peaceful yet close to sites and enjoyment of The Big Island of Hawaii!

Once part of the famous Parker Ranch, the green, rolling pastures of 62-acre Rainbow Ranch is the setting for this new three-bedroom, two-bath home. One of only nine houses in the community of West Waikoekoe, the property extends to the rim of Waipio Valley, the boyhood home of King Kamehameha I and a place of unsurpassed splendor. All views from the home are lush and green, with the ocean beyond and majestic Mauna Kea behind. The area still has the paniolo (cowboy country) ambiance with horses, cattle and sheep roaming the pastures nearby. Peaceful and quiet, only the sounds of nature punctuate the silence. Clear nights provide stunning stargazing. Hike or walk right from your doorstep, rent bikes or ride horseback from nearby facilities.

With all this beauty and privacy you are still only a 10-minute drive to the town of Waimea/Kamuela for shopping and dining. A drive east takes you to the charming old sugar-plantation town of Honokaa, along the spectacular Hamakua Coast to historic Hilo and on to Volcano National Park, where Kilauea has been flowing for 30 years.
Drive west a half hour to Kohala Coast beaches, including Hapuna Beach State Park, consistently ranked on international Top Ten lists. Continue on to Kailua-Kona for shopping, dining and nightlife.

The home itself is built for comfort and enjoyment of the locale—which includes rainfall and cool temperatures—with a deluxe Marquis hot tub for therapeutic relaxation on the large wrap-around covered lanai (patio) plus both indoor and outdoor fireplaces. The custom kitchen serves all areas with ease, and the barbecue area takes advantage of the amazing views and brilliant night sky.

The dining table seats six with four barstools at the unique, custom glass-covered “beach-in-a-box” counter for breakfast or overflow. Comfortable seating makes the most of flat-screen TV with DISH, DVD player and WIFI.

The master bedroom features a king-size bed, with a queen in the second bedroom and twin beds in the third to sleep six comfortably. Two full bathrooms complete the accommodations, along with beach chairs and mats, towels, and boogie boards.

Owner lives next door on the adjacent 28 acres and will provide fresh ranch eggs (from Rainbow Ranch), fruit, tea and Kona coffee for your first breakfast, as well as help planning day trips.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Aloha, My name is Heidi Clayton, this is my dog Bert in the picture with me. I grew up in Santa Barbara, California. My family was in the restaurant business there. I attended Prescott College in Arizona majoring in Outdoor Education. I've worked as a veterinarian technician and love animals. Since 1990 I have been a certified PATH Therapeutic Riding Instructor teaching people with special needs to ride horses. I moved to the incredible Big Island of Hawaii in 2001. After buying land, in the gorgeous community of West Waikoekoe, I started developing Rainbow Ranch. We raise, horses, cattle, sheep, chickens and have a huge koi pond. I am looking forward to sharing this beautiful and special place with others.

Why the Owner Chose Waimea, Hawaii County, HI, USA:
The new home, I just completed in 2014, was built with care and consideration to detail for making it comfortable, warm and hospitable. It is a lovely home in a spectacular setting. Sometimes it looks like you are driving into a painting with views of Waipio Valley, waterfalls, Mauna Kea, green rolling hills, forests and views of Maui in the distance. We are off grid. The electricity for the home is solar power and we use catchment from our wonderful rain water. The photovoltaic system is top of the line and works exceptionally well. It will run anything that is needed for your comfort, including a brand new hot tub. The catchment water goes through filters and a purifying system. Private and peaceful but also modern and comfortable.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the plantation style home with a large wrap around lanai so you can relax outside and enjoy the gorgeous views and nature all around. The home is charming with an indoor and outdoor appeal.
