Waimea Real Estate


All the more close to heaven, like another world where the summer is always just dawning on its first day, the rolling green hills and pastures of Waimea seem far and away from the beaches and palm trees that are so familiar in Hawaii. Here is the open high country of the big island and home of the Paniolo Hawaiian cowboy and the Kama Aina, the mainlander who has transformed themselves into one of the locals whose homes are here on the Big Island. Properties and homes that are located 2,600 feet above the Kohala coast below. Here cooler breezes blow and cleaner, purer air caresses the land, its real estate and ranches and the people who call Waimea home. People enjoy a different home life here with horseback riding and views of the coastline and beaches far below but just 15 minutes away.


Waimea, also known as Kamuela, actually provides enough real estate to house 9,000 residents. The small town is alive with abundant restaurants, boutiques and shops, and has museums, galleries, and a theater too, where renowned Hawaiian musicians and dancers perform regularly. And there’s plenty more culture in Waimea, including the Parker Ranch Fourth of July Rodeo, the Aloha Festivals Waimea Paniolo Parade, and the Waimea Cherry Blossom Heritage Festival.


Waimea is also home to the very desirable HPA, Hawaii Preparatory Academy. This school serves K-12 and provides boarding from Grade 8 up. Steeped in excellence and Hawaiian tradition, the academy is located in the heart of the Big Island’s ranching country, providing a holistic, tactile academic experience.
