Puakea Bay Ranch
WHAT WE LOVE: Spacious homes & lots, equestrian trail, whale watching, Maui & ocean views.
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.
Puakea Bay Ranch (not to be confused with Puakea Ranch) is the northernmost gated community located along the makai (or ocean) side of the highway. Homes here are spacious, with a minimum of 4,000 square feet. Sweeping ocean and Maui views, an equestrian riding trail along the property's perimeter, and an oceanfront park are just some of the appeal of this unique community, comprised of forty 10-acre parcels that afford residents exceptional privacy. The lots are oriented enhance ocean & Maui views from most rooms and on clear days, residents can spy neighbor islands Kahoʻolawe and Lana‘i. To the east, watch the sun and moon rise over the Kohala Mountains' green slopes and valleys. Relax and enjoy spectacular tropical sunsets from your lanai and even seasonal whale watching from November to April. You'll feel miles from your nearest neighbor, yet close to all the top-tier amenities that you'd expect from a Kohala Coast resort community.
