Nestled on the western slopes of Mauna Kea – a 13,800-foot high dormant volcano, this beautiful community located in Parker Ranch country sits between 3,000 and 5,000 feet elevation and encompasses over 3,000-acres of gently sloping pasture with groves of eucalyptus and Monterey Cypress trees. With a topnotch polo field and two gorgeous arenas, Waiki’i Ranch is the ideal location for equestrian enthusiasts. If this piques your interest, do not hesitate to contact Big Island Luxury real estate expert Harold Clarke for more information.

If your vision is for a luxury horse property or ranch, this community is the ideal location. Brimming with amenities, every detail was thought out for your enjoyment and relaxation. Entry to Waiki’i Ranch is controlled by two security gates and the community is serviced by over 12-miles of commonly owned roads. Other common property is a clubhouse, recreational building, polo field, tennis courts, equestrian and rodeo facility, and an 80-acre park. Water is also provided by two commonly owned deep-wells. For the enjoyment of all owners, each lot has up to 20% of its land area dedicated to an agricultural easement for recreational purposes. These easements are fenced, allowing for miles of unimpeded access for horseback riding and hiking.
A luxury master-planned community, with carefully crafted covenants and design rules that ensure high standards of architecture and construction, potential buyers will want to explore these restrictions to ensure they meet their ultimate building goals. For example, homes, guest houses, barns and all other permanent structures are restricted to a designated building envelope on each lot – the rest of the lot is dedicated to pasture and trees. Exterior night-lights are also banned to ensure prime stargazing. While owners may graze their lots with privately owned livestock, many open their pasture to the community herd of cattle, which is moved throughout the Ranch as needed. The Waiki’i Ranch Homeowners Association also employs a full time Ranch Manager, a maintenance employee, a part time secretary, and contracts with a property manager for the benefit of owners within the community.
The climate in Waiki’i Ranch is also a major selling factor for those who are interested in horse properties on the Big Island. The air is generally dry, with annual rainfall averaging just 20 inches per year. While summertime temperatures range from the high 70’s to low 50’s, winter temperatures are about 10 degrees cooler. And, with beautiful clear skies on a regular basis, the nighttime sky has more visible stars than you could possible imagine.
Currently, vacant ranch lots range from the mid $300,000’s for a 10-acre lot to nearly $500,000 for 40-acres. Potential buyers will also find a handful of homes available for sale ranging from the low $1 million range to well over $7 million for an elaborate compound complete with private horse arena and stalls.
