  • Ginger Farm Zen House on 3 Acres

    The Ginger farm is home to Waimea’s famous Cherry Blossom festival. During this time our home is opened up for a Japanese Home Tour, tea tasting, and Japanese craft making. For the remainder of the year we open up our home for guests to rent. I have 3 miniature goats and two Kune Kune pigs that you get to feed and pet during your stay. We are located five minutes from Waimea town and only 15 minutes from some of the most pristine beaches on the island, Hapuna and Puako. The house is on a three acre farm overlooking a babbling steam with an avocado tree and a panoramic view of Mauna Kea. Just down the road every Tuesday and Friday is a local farmer’s market where the freshest fruits and vegetables can be found. Another farmer’s market can also be found one block away only on Saturdays. With temperatures on average a bit cooler compared to the rest of the Island, our home has a fireplace that allows for a warm and comfortable atmosphere. In addition to the best farmer’s markets, hikes, and beaches minutes away, you will easily reach other exciting destinations. Kona and Hilo are both an hour’s drive away and the entrance on Saddle Road for the 'Mauna Kea Summit' is 30 minutes away. Another 30 minutes away is Honokaa Village leading you to Waipio Valley, and 45 minutes away is Pololu Valley in Hawi. From Hilo it's only 26 more miles to Volcano park. The town of Wiamea has plenty to offer with its art galleries, boutiques, Parker Ranch, spas, golf, playgrounds, astronomy at the KECK observatory, the Anna Ranch Museum, and a great selection of local restaurants. As stated by one restaurant critic 'For a town of 8,500, little Waimea is turning into a culinary mecca. That may have something to do with the fact that it sits amid some of the state's best farms and ranches. Waimea is all about locally sourced food.' Just see for yourself and visit one of our many farmer's markets.

  • Beautiful new home on 34 stunning acres with magnificent views at a great value!

    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.

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.

Comfortable seating makes the most of flat-screen TV with DISH, DVD player and WIFI.
