What We Love: Old Hawai‘i Meets Modern Luxury, Huge 20-acre Lots, a Small & Cozy Community.
Located just three miles west of Hawi on the North Kohala Coast, three “gentleman ranch” communities have been carved out of the former Puakea Ranch: the Ranch at Puakea, Puakea Bay Ranch, and Puakea Ranch. The third of these, Puakea Ranch, is home to beautifully updated, original ranch buildings that make a serene setting for weddings or special events, and is home to just nine parcels on the mauka (or mountain) side of the Akoni Pule Highway.
On the makai (ocean) side of the highway, you'll find the Ranch at Puakea, the southernmost of the two larger residential communities. Behind the gated entry, you'll find three oceanfront lots and ten ocean view lots, averaging more than 20 acres each. The area is an equestrian-friendly community that carries on the rich ranching heritage of the region. The Ranch at Puakea is notable for the sheer beauty of the vibrant, rolling green pastured dotted with windswept Kiawe trees, and intoxicating blue ocean views. All three Puakea communities marry the charm of Old Hawai’i with all the luxuries you'd expect on the Kohala Coast.
