Big Island

Calling all Ranch Lovers – This Masterpiece is Built for a King

Hale Mehana on the Big Island

A 53-acre cedar log equestrian estate in Waikii Ranch, sits on the heart of Mauna Kea Mountain. In my opinion, this is one of the biggest deals on the Island.

Hale Mehana, the House of Warmth, cost over $23 million to build and is now selling for only $5.6 million. 6 beds, 6 full bath 7,916 sqft luxury Canadian log residence, with a 7-stall stable and upstairs living area, a 14,000 sqft covered riding arena, a “drive-through” tractor/trailer barn, and a comfortable 1 bedroom guest house.

An Estate Built for a King

Yes, this can be yours. I would love to show you this magnificent estate built for a king. Actually, did you know? King Solomon built his temple out of cedarwood. There is a potent healing energy that comes from cedarwood.

The ranch was originally built by Erin Keck, the heir of the world-renowned Keck Observatory founders. She sold the ranch to my dear friends. It cost Erin over $23 million to build. The extra touches and unique detail throughout is spectacular.

I had the pleasure of living and care-taking this stunning ranch when my friends bought it. It was the two and a half best years ever living in Shangri-La. The breathtaking sunsets of the Kohala Coast and moonrise over Mauna Kea. With the cool gentle mountain breeze flowing through the property, most of all the energy of the land is a peaceful haven.

Hale Mehana sits over 3000 ft. above sea level, just a few minutes from the town of Waimea in the shadows of Mauna Kea. Located in Waiki’i Ranch, a gated community with polo field and roping and barrel racing. It is so much fun watching the polo games. I love it when the mystical mist flows through the game; it is an enchanting sight.

High End Appliances & Fine Furnishings

One of my favorite parts of this estate is the main house kitchen, with a two-story-high ceiling and stain glass accents, top-of-the-line appliances, pizza oven, and so much more. I enjoyed preparing delicious dishes, and I have such fond memories of being part of Hale Mehana.

This beautiful estate can be yours and is turn-key ready. Fully furnished with only the finest furnishings and designed by the owner’s wife, who is one of the loveliest ladies I have ever met.

This log home was initially built in British Columbia, then dismantled and shipped to Hawaii where it was re-assembled without using a single nail. The home’s ambiance is majestic yet cozy. A massive grove of eucalyptus provides a canopy of privacy, making this estate disappear from anyone on the outside. Adjacent to the 53-acre estate is Parker Ranch, one of the largest ranches in the US.

The main residence features a great room with a custom two-story river rock fireplace and water feature, 5 bedrooms including a master suite with a wood-burning fireplace in the bedroom, clawfoot bathtubs, and custom stained glass throughout.

An immaculate 9,000 sqft stable with seven stalls is the heart of this haven for horses. There’s an upstairs living quarters, office, and private lanai. A 14,000 sqft covered riding arena offers the flexibility to ride rain or shine, day or night.

Tucked in the forest is the perfect guest house with a fireplace, splash pool, and a wrap-around deck.
