Tradewinds Ranch is a 30 acre ranch that resides in the quiet rural community of Punalu'u, the Ko'olauloa Mountain District on the island of O'ahu. The ranch sits Mauka (mountain) side in front of Sacred Falls and is about 2 blocks (walking distance) from the iconic beaches of the north eastern shore of Oahu.

Tradewinds Ranch is a ranch with farm animals: cows, horses, chickens, ducks, sheep, goats, dogs, cats, frogs... etc.! We are excited to share our slice of country with you!

The space

We offer a very private Hawaiian country abode, free from crowding in urban centers in Hawaii that is truly a tropical-country style experience.

Our 30 acres working ranch features horses, dogs, cats, cattle, goats, sheep, chickens, donkeys, pigs, and peacocks. Our animals are apart of our family and roam free among us and there land. We hope our guest feel free and comfortable to enjoy our beautiful mountain views and walks down our country road.

We are a working ranch that is located in the mountainside of the jungly, rainy side of the island. This can mean at times we'll have ants, termites and other critters or pests that are above and beyond the norm. We do routinely exterminate and if ever there's a problem, you can give us a call.

FULL DISCLOSURE: ABSOLUTELY NO EVENTS OR PARTIES CAN BE HELD ON THIS PROPERTY. Only the number of guests noted on the contract and the registered vehicles are allowed on the property.

Guest access

To access the ranch: Drive to the nearly the end of Puhuli Street. On the left-hand side you will see a large Palm tree and American Flag. The ranch is surrounded by a white fence. Turn left just before the flag. You will come to the main ranch gate that says "Tradewinds Ranch" on the posts above the gate. Just prior to arriving, I'll be sending you detailed instructions on how to navigate to the ranch house once on-property.

The home is free standing and you will be the only people staying in the house. It has a private driveway with a gate you can close behind you to keep the farm animals at bay if you choose.

Interaction with guests

I also live on the property down the road and can assist you with whatever you need during your stay. Just shoot me a text or give me a call!

The ranch house was a perfect place for our family’s thanksgiving trip. We weren’t expecting such an amazing experience for the great price! We were able to cook a full thanksgiving feast using one of the two fully loaded kitchens in the house. The area was really cool and secluded, with visits from the horses, goats, cows etc. Not only was the place great but Joyce and Dave are so fun, kind, and hospitable, hosting our whole family for drinks and pupu’s on our last night! I highly recommend Joyce and Dave’s place and we will be back!

We very much enjoyed Tradewinds Ranch. The house is very spacious and close to many attractions on the North Shore. Seven Brothers was recommended to us in the guidebook and we loved it. Their burgers were awesome and absolutely worth the price. We highly recommend the milkshakes and açaí bowls as well. Joyce was wonderful about communicating with us and Greta gave us some great tips too. Our favorite memory is definitely the morning we got up to go watch the sun rise on the beach and we had to get all the animals to move from the driveway. We found it quite entertaining and hilarious! Definitely recommend staying here.

Absolutely amazing place to stay. The hosts are fantastic and so kind. The ranch is beautiful, peaceful and definitely a place to stay if you want to relax. Very close to the beach, a short drive to stores and very much a true Hawaiian experience. Highly recommended!

Joyce is very sweet and a great host. Response was quick and the surroundings were beautiful. The animals are adorable and friendly. We were outside everyday looking for them as they roamed the ranch. Just what we needed to get away! Thank you Joyce!

Awesome place, great host, made our anniversary celebration special. Animals were amazing and it was great to have 3 showers and so many beds. We enjoyed the decks in the evening as well. Sincere appreciation for host for hospitality.

My name is Joyce Lignell and I'm the partner of David Thielen who is the owner and creator/builder of our beautiful, private 30 acre ranch. We're proud of this peaceful, rural place that is so rare on the island of Oahu. There are very few places you can stay here that is an actual ranch yet only a couple of blocks away from the beach! We have horses, cows, chickens, ducks, goats, sheep, frogs... you get the idea!

We're excited you are considering staying with us in what we think is the most beautiful place on earth.
