Waimea Real Estate

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.
