When dreaming of a Hawaiian vacation, few people envision horses and cows, but that is what makes this home so special. It is located in Kohala Ranch, a gated community of more than 3900 acres between the coastal Akoni Pule highway and the rolling green hills and ranchlands along the mountain road between Waimea and Hawi. Grazing cattle and horses are part of the heritage and the landscape of Kohala Ranch, as well as spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the Kohala mountain range, Hualalai, Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, and across that ocean, Maui.

This home is situated at 700 feet of elevation in the Meadows section, midway between the ranch’s summit and the ocean. On your way to the house from the gatehouse, you may have to slow down for cattle, horses, or wild turkeys crossing the road, but slowing down is why we come to Hawaii. Up a winding approach to the home you’ll enjoy kiawe trees and colorful landscaping.

Arriving at the spacious parking/garage area puts you in perfect position to turn and face the expansive Pacific Ocean sparkling below. Take a moment to stop and listen: doves whistling, breezes rustling the many-textured leaves and fronds, and peaceful quiet. If you arrive at night, look up: being far enough removed from city lights, you’ll see more stars than possible from almost anywhere on earth.

This spectacular, 2700-square-foot home on 1.3 acres with two master suites and two additional guest rooms, is perfect for vacationing families, multi-generation configurations, or multiple couples. It is midway between world-class beaches, quaint Hawi and Kapa’au, and the historic paniolo (cowboy) town of Waimea.
