About Hawaii

Hawaii

imgHawaii was the last state to be admitted to the Union and is the only one to exist completely separate from another mainland. Geologically the islands are a collection of volcanic features. While other landmasses often shrink, the Hawaiian Islands are distinguished for their ability to grow, thanks to the continual production of lava, the substrata for the islands. In fact, consider the unique ecosystems of these volcanic and tropical islands, in combination with their remoteness to any other landmass, it seems amazing to realize the collection of flora and fauna extant on the islands. As impressive as the evolution has been, though, overdevelopment has made many of the native plants and animals endangered. Hawaii now has the dubious honor of having the longest list of endangered species in proportion to its size.

As far as population goes, Hawaii leads the Union in multicultural residents, number of Asian Americans and a surprising lack of Hispanics, proportionately. Also, if you seek good, clean living, Hawaii now boasts the longest life expectancy of any other state. Besides English, the state recently added the Hawaiian language as the alternative official language. This is why many place names are now given in English and in their Hawaiian version. Native Hawaiians comprise a subset of Polynesians.

Hawaii’s educational system is quite distinct as well. While other states have decentralized public school systems, or those run by local municipalities, Hawaii’s has remained governed by the state’s singular Department of Education.

Pearl Harbor was, and still is, a key Pacific Naval Base. On December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked it in a brutal and unexpected air strike. This singular event officially launched the U.S. into the midst of World War II. Today Pearl Harbor is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the state.

Luxury Hawaiian Equestrian Estate on 53 Acres

Waimea, Hawaii County, Hawaii


An exquisite offering of unparalleled value, Hale Mehana, the House of Warmth, is a legacy property unlike any other in the state of Hawaii. The estate includes a 7000+ sf luxury Canadian log residence, a 7-stall stable with upstairs living area, a 14,000 sf covered riding ring, a "drive through" tractor/trailer barn and a comfortable 1 bedroom guest house. Hale Mehana sits more than 3000 ft. above sea level, just minutes from the town of Waimea in the shadows of Mauna Kea. Located in Waiki'i Ranch, a gated community with polo field and weekend matches, roping and barrel racing arena, and approx. 12 miles of corridors for horseback riding. This cedar 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 overall ambiance of the home 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 custom 2 story river rock fireplace with water feature, 5 bedrooms including a master suite with a wood burning fireplace in the bedroom, and custom stained glass throughout. Except for personal items, this exceptional estate is being offered furnished. An immaculate 9000 sf stable with 7 stalls is the heart of this haven for horses. There is an upstairs living quarters, office and private lanai. A 14,000 sf riding arena offers the flexibility to ride rain or shine, day or night. Tucked in the forest is the perfect guest house with fireplace and wrap-around deck for extended family, guests or staff. This home was created with the same care and attention to detail as all other buildings. You will not find another property like this in Hawaii, and the replacement cost to build would far exceed the offered price.
