Uncertain Times Bring Out the Best Spirit of Aloha on Hawaii's Tranquil Big Island

It's during uncertain times like these that the world gives us serious pause...

Whether we asked for it or not, we are put into a situation where we begin to evaluate what is most important to us in our lives. I first set foot on this beautiful island more than 23 years ago. Since then, much has obviously changed, yet many aspects still remain the same. Kailua-Kona has become much more busier than it ever used to me. Hilo town actually has traffic now. However, the real estate here still remains true to it's core. Whether referring to high end luxury gated community homes, or quaint oceanside plantation homes, the spirit of Aloha is still very much evident in both. Little did I know that I would be here focusing all of my time on selling some of the most intriguing real estate opportunities available anywhere the world over.

Hawaii's Big Island now more than ever seems to be on of the safest locations available to live. The pandemic has brought forth many aspects are not going to affect our lives for many years to come. As we continue to have discussions with our future and potential clients it is becoming more and more evident that most people simply want to live in a world that is free from issues that we had been taking for granted prior to these major recent events. The Kohala Coast, Hamakua Coast, and North Kohala Coasts all offer something that is simply just not available on the mainland U.S. They offer peace, ocean views, coastline scenery, and most of all, privacy.

Below, are some very appealing links to share with our readers and for those who are thinking about a possible change:

Hualalai Resort - Historical Significance with Luxurious Results


At Historic Kaupulehu - Hualalai Resort, time almost stands still. “Hualalai” is considered the middle child of the five Big Island mountains. Not the newest and not the oldest, but yet powerful in it’s ascending slopes towards the shoreline. It’s beauty and presence sweeps down from 8,271 feet in height and offers much to see with it’s cones, craters, and dryland forests. Wisdom and great meaning continue to flow and spread throughout Hawaiian culture and history. It is only fitting for us to realize that our time here on earth is borrowed and this resort reminds us of that. For those who have had the pleasure of traveling the world over, many of them know that there is something secretly tasteful and special about Hualalai Resort. For those lucky enough to afford it, a purchase within this gated community becomes even that much more attractive.


With spectacular ocean views, fine dining, and amenities to rival all others, this is the getaway for the ultra wealthy. At Hualalai Resort you will find real estate from villas, custom single family homes, and even vacant land being offered. “E Ola” means, “May There Be Life.” A simple way of putting it yet there is much truth behind the meaning. There are also other prominent places nearby such as Kukio Bay, Kiholo Bay, and Kona Village Resort. These certainly help with providing the adventurous few to continue to explore the surroundings. The resort’s design has been well thought out and is managed with only the best ideas and services in mind. For example, when staying in the Fours Seasons Hotel it is not uncommon for guest services to call you by name. This added touch is just one simple compliment that can make someones day feel even better. Some may consider it hyperbole when they hear their friends describe their experience. Truth be told, there is a reason Hualalai Resort has been rated as one of the top destinations in the world by Conde Nast Traveler. 


Owners are offered several high class private options for dining and membership privileges. With a relaxing oasis dispersed throughout the resort’s grounds, you can spend time snorkeling with manta rays, surfing in the ocean, or enjoying a round of golf on one of the best maintained courses in the U.S. Guests also have access to resort style swimming pools and unwinding for an evening in hot tubs adjacent to the swimming areas. If a game of tennis is something you desire there are several tennis pros on staff ready to provide private, semi, and group lessons. Life at Hualalai whether living or visiting comes with an assurance that may not be offered at other luxurious destinations in the world. This stand alone vision is what makes the real estate here so highly desirable. Resale villas currently offered start in the $1.4 Million+ range, while actively listed homes are also being offered in the $4 Million+ plus range. Two of the finest listings currently available on the market in the MLS are presently listed for $11,495,000 and $12,500,000.

Timeless Architectural Masterpiece Coupled with Mauna Kea’s Rich Resort History - Big Island's Finest


Every so often, a beautiful one of a kind structure is brought before our eyes. This process involves years of innovation complimented by a deep desire to accomplish only the best. An exclusive new listing is being offered for those who seek a once in a lifetime opportunity. An immaculate custom estate with elegant craftsmanship and exceptional finishes. Spanning approx. 10,000 sq. ft. of air conditioned space, this spectacular 6 bedroom custom home leaves us with nothing else to be imagined. Cumaru, Cedar, Ipe, and Teak include just a few of fine exotic finishes displayed throughout. A wonderful and flowing floor plan adds to the magic that can truly only be experienced in person.


A Hawaiian dream home designed by award-winning Big Island architect Mark de Reus. Beautiful swimming pool with waterways are featured at every turn. To top it all off the cascading waterfall lit in the evening with stunning sunsets in the horizon can’t be beat or matched. The Kohala Coast is home to some of the most intriguing luxury homes available anywhere in the world. What makes this one so enticing is it’s location within the private gated enclave of Mauna Kea Resort. Tennis, golf, and fine dining are all available within minutes. A forever ocean view lasting from dawn till dusk is only just the beginning.


Little did we know and soon after Hawaii became the country’s 50th state, Laurance Rockefeller would set foot on Mauna Kea’s famous crescent beach. Completed in 1965 Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was completed and considered the finest hotel in the world at the time. Famous celebrities, business moguls, and diplomatics simply had to come and see for themselves. In keeping with a design favorable to preserving the beauty of the land, Rockefeller was sure to meet the challenges of responsible land development. 


Kauana’oa Bay today is known as one of the best hidden luxury resort secrets on the planet. For those lucky enough to experience even a day at the beach here, will leave them wondering if this could truly be heaven on earth. Today the resort has gone through wonderful improvements and the fine artwork from the West, Asia, and Oceania is proudly on display. Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill produced this architectural vision and are also known for their work behind some of the best American structures during this last century. One such example is the skylit atrium at the resort’s entrance surrounded by it’s interrelated wings. Overlooking the beach from the main upstairs lobby, is a sight to remember and to never forget. An elegance personified by Hawaii’s most sought after lifestyle, the Kohala Coast.
