Once part of the famous Parker Ranch, the green, rolling pastures of 62-acre Rainbow Ranch is the setting for this new three-bedroom, two-bath home. One of only nine houses in the community of West Waikoekoe, the property extends to the rim of Waipio Valley, the boyhood home of King Kamehameha I and a place of unsurpassed splendor.
