Dillingham Ranch Est. 1985

68-540 Farrington Hwy, Waialua, HI, United States

Hawaii will never offer you a better chance at melting your brain and overwhelming your heart than this 2,700-acre estate that kicks up 19 acres of North Shore coastline.
No matter who you travel with, this is one of those wildly rumored—practically mythical—places that can actually make good on promising something for everyone: polo grounds, a forest reserve, a mountain range, a premiere equestrian center. The good land, complete with peacocks and just down the road from the historic surf town of Haleiwa, even boasts the largest coconut tree grove in the island chain. And all that's without ever stepping foot indoors.

Venue Setting

This naturally peaceful 2,700 acre property on the sunny North Shore of Oahu is a private working cattle ranch, equestrian center and agricultural gem. Wild peacocks and a variety of native Hawaiian birds wander among exotic fauna such as mango, monkeypod, citrus, macadamia nut and coconut groves. The Estate House boasts a 3,000 square foot dining room with a stonewall fireplace, hardwood floors, high ceiling beams, lovely French doors and statuesque pillars. Your eye rests upon lush groves and lawns up to the beautiful Waianae mountain range and the sky beyond. Attached to the main house is a state of the art 700 square foot professional grade kitchen with a separate vendor entrance. Different ceremony sites surrounding the eight-room house offer options such as the Central Courtyard, the Hundred Year Old Banyan Trees, and the Avenue of Royal Palms, but other photo and ceremony options on the sprawling property include Dillingham Lake, the Cross Country Course, and the largest Coconut Grove in Hawaii. The prominent Dillingham family originally built the Estate House in 1917 as their private summer retreat, and for many generations the house has welcomed people through her doors and surrounded her guests with natural beauty. Recently renovated and restored back the original period condition, she keeps the old Hawaii feel and charm alive. Come discover Dillingham Ranch, Oahu's hidden gem.

Accommodations
Three bedrooms each with their own bathroom and outdoor shower are included just for you, so you may prepare for your special day. The "bridal suite" is actually two adjoining rooms, a "Jack and Jill" which has a large walk in closet, 3 beds and a little extra room for guests. The "groom's suite" is located opposite the bridal suite across the central courtyard. Two additional rooms are provided for your guest’s restroom use. A third restroom in the kitchen area services your vendors. 8 rooms are available for overnight accommodation for an additional fee. As a courtesy to you and your vendors and to ensure a relaxed event, we offer the day before the main event for set up, and the day after for break down. The day of your wedding, the entire ranch is available for photos, not just the Estate House area. You are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity! A "cold" kitchen includes use of brand new refrigerators, freezers, countertops, water for washing dishes, and general use for the setup your caterer. You are welcome to store flowers, food and beverages, etc. overnight in the refrigerators the day prior to your event. Also, a separate back entrance to the kitchen is a perfect out of the way staging area for your caterer. **Kitchen Water NOT potable.
