Hawaii's Kohala Coast on the Big Island - Beach and Oceanfront Living Defined

Come on over here for a minute and let's both just step away from what we both think we know about beachfront living. Yes, some of us have stayed in hotels for a week just steps from the beach and others have actually done it for longer. But have you ever lived in a home directly on the warm summer sand along the oceanfront shores of Hawaii. If you have not, like the majority of people out there, it's nothing to worry about and I will try and share with you what it is like.

Several years ago, living on the island of Oahu I had this vision that came to light, that I would pursue purchasing an oceanfront home and that would be it for me as far as every moving again. Well, the first part came to fruition and I did move into an incredible home along the white sandy beaches of Oahu with the most stunning views of Waikiki and Diamond in the distance. Lit up at night, the Honolulu skyline was like nothing else that ever existed on earth. You had to live it to believe it. 

At first, falling asleep living in a beachfront home can be harder than one would think. Because the Hawaii temperatures throughout most of the year are in the mid 70's to mid 80's, leaving your windows open at night is nothing out of the ordinary. The smell of the ocean is like nothing else and the breezes only add to it it's now ambiance and fairytale flare. During the day we would randomly go on walks and as we are coming home a Hawaiian monk seal would plant itself along our backyard shores. Or another time, we would see surfers show up and pound the waves along the banks until they could barely see at night and only due to the moon keeping a friendly eye on them.

Those were the days. A simple little 900 square foot beach house built in the early 1950's. The definition of what it means to be free. To this day, there are many amazing locations all along Hawaii's shores in which beach homes sit awaiting their next new owners and residents to call their own. New memories living beachfront and oceanfront await. Areas on the Big Island like Puako, Kehena, and Keaukaha await. Kukio, Hualalai, and Mauna Kea are for those who want and can have it all. Mauna Lani is also in a world of it's own with so many private lagoons and walkways leading to privacy exemplified of what it means to be wealthy.
