These rare Cowboy properties are highly sought after by those wanting the real thing which is becoming increasingly harder to find. With plenty of room to hang your hats and dust your boots, the country exterior conceals surprising state-of-the-art interior amenities. Classic Hawaii ambience abounds and the paniolo (cowboy) spirit pervades the peaceful, serene and very private property; we dont see many like this anymore.
