Puakea Bay Ranch – Equestrian Property for Sale

Puakea Bay Ranch is the northernmost gated subdivision on the ocean side along the leeward Kohala Coast as one drives Akoni Pule Highway (Highway 270) to Hawi. In other posts I have blogged about Puakea Bay Ranch as a horse-friendly equestrian community and compared its design guidelines to nearby Kohala Ranch.

There are currently two homes for sale at Puakea Bay Ranch, one of which is horse-ready. And several vacant lots are on the market for those of you who want to build your dream home from scratch. Hereʻs a summary of your options.

Luxury Home with Horse Facilities For Sale at Puakea Bay Ranch

New to the market at Puakea Bay Ranch is the home with the best equestrian facilities in the community. I had this property listed years ago so know a bit of the history. The developer convinced a friend of his to buy four adjacent 10-acre lots and create a luxury equestrian estate to showcase the then-new subdivisionʻs potential. The home was modeled on the Villas at Mauna Kea. The barn and arena straddle the lot lines and back up to the gate to the equestrian trail that rims the subdivision.

The current owners apparently took the 3-bedroom main house down to the studs and gave the 1987 vintage home a much-needed refresh. The guest quarters has two bedrooms and its own two-car garage in addition to the main houseʻs garage: a perfect fit for the automobile enthusiast.
