Puakea Real Estate

Puakea Real Estate - Horse Properties for sale on the Big Island

Located near the Big Island’s most northern point, Puakea real estate features two large-acreage luxury gated communities. Here you find some of the Big Island’s best horse properties for sale, Puakea Bay Ranch and the Ranch at Puakea. Both are located on the makai (ocean) side of the main road, boasting spectacular ocean views and oceanfront homesites.


An additional third section of Puakea, located on the mauka (mountain) side of the main road, consists of several old Hawaiian ranch homes that have been wonderfully converted to host Big Island weddings and private events. For more information about this beautiful Big Island event venue, visit the Puakea Ranch website.


Despite its rural country feel, Puakea is conveniently located just 3-miles away from the quaint historic town of Hawi, featuring several restaurants, cafes, a small grocery store, and several unique shops. The luxurious Kohala Coast resorts are 30-minutes away, featuring award-winning golf courses, the best spas on the Big Island, numerous ocean adventures, boutique shops, local Big Island art galleries, and fine dining options.


Nowhere else on the Big Island will you find better views of Maui than from Puakea – with scenery stretching across Alenuihaha Channel that is awe-inspiring! This stretch of coastline is also well-known for an abundance of humpback whale sightings during the winter months – easily visible from land.


The climate found here is near perfect with comfortable temperatures ranging between 70-80 degrees year-round and receiving approximately 30″ inches of rainfall per year.

Ranch at Puakea

Just South of Puakea Bay Ranch, there is the 300-acre Ranch at Puakea, an exclusive gated community with private ocean access featuring ten (10) lots with ocean views and three (3) additional oceanfront lots, all between 20-30 acres each. The area consists of gently sloping topography from sea level up to approximately 500-ft in elevation with scattered Kiawe trees (mesquite) across the rolling pastures. Truly a beautiful landscape. Homesites come with underground utilities already stubbed-out to the lot line (water, electric, cable, and telephone). 

Property for Sale at the Ranch at Puakea

As you can imagine, supply is limited – and with such unique large oceanfront acreage unlike anywhere else in Hawaii, it’s no wonder properties for sale are scarce. Homesites start at around $800,000, and currently there are five homes that have been built.


If you’re looking to buy a Big Island horse property near the ocean with vintage Hawaii charm and touches of modern luxury with amenities available at your doorstep, the area of Puakea is hard to beat.
