Three Exhilarating Photos of Beautiful Kiholo Bay, Kohala Coast Big Island

Volcano Village Beauty and It's Incredible Feeling of "Escaping From It All"

Our family most recently found solace in escaping to the other side of the island to see the majestic yet mysterious lava action at Volcanoes National Park at the crater. To capture this type of moment it is best to go and view at night. It is believed by scientists that within the next month the crater will continue to fill up and provide viewers and visitors with even more amazing photography.

One of the top three places to stay in our opinion are the Hale Ohia Cottages. The owner is a super amazing and friendly person who will treat you right. This is an enchanting place that will leave you yearning to come back time after time. The entrance is off the main road to your own private sanctuary. With 18 bedrooms/living quarters you can book the entire retreat for a company outing. The cottages are very peaceful with birds singing and light rainy mists showering overhead.

Everything as this magical enchantment will leave you speechless and breathless at the same time. The only other two great places to stay here from our experience are Kilauea Lodge and Volcano House. What makes the Ohia Cottages so special is that the seclusion and privacy cannot be rivaled. We are looking to going back soon and you should too. This is one of those places that we wanted to share with our clients so that it becomes one of their favorite places to book. An exotic Hawaii escape that will become a place to cherish with your family and friends for years to come.

Big Island Hawaii Luxury Homes Private Koi Ponds - Tranquility and Serenity

When it comes to adding serenity to your luxury Hawaii home, a beautiful and private koi pond should certainly be something to consider. As we enter 2021 it seems that more and more second home buyers are starting to turn towards purchasing exotic escapes in places such as Arizona, Florida, and Hawaii. The Hawaiian Islands are home to cascading waterfalls, remote white sands beaches, and lava flows exhibiting red and orange hues finely lit in the night. One of the best ways to enhance your new luxury home on the Big Island is to seek the professional guidance of having a luxury pond installed on your property. It will immediately offer you a private oasis like you have never seen before.

Hawaii has been tied to Koi and their history for decades now and it is hard to believe that these fish are known to live for a very long time. Some even over 200 years. The internet seems to offer some more information on this with one Koi actually living to 226 years. The beauty and gracefulness of the simple way they swim and meander along the water is what clients have shared with us that makes them so exciting and relaxing to watch. A great form of finding peace and enjoyment in a therapeutic atmosphere. The Big Island of Hawaii is a place of tranquility and peace. Homes with Koi ponds are more than just there for the looks.

We wanted to share this amazing photo with you from a home in one of the fine luxury resorts along the Kohala Coast. These fish look so happy during a time that the world has been dealing with much unrest. The real estate market here in Kona and along the Coast all the way up to North Kohala continues to set new and unprecedented marks. Showings are final picking up again and we are seeing less days on market for properties that are priced well. Within resorts like Hualalai, Mauna Lani, and Waikoloa you will be able to find homes that have Koi ponds strategically placed for their owners and visitors to view. One amazing resource that we would love to share is Hawaii Koi and Ponds.

The Sunset That Defines The Big Island's Hawaii Kohala Coast - Hapuna Beach December 2020 - Hawaii Luxury Homes

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to welcome in 2021 and to say goodbye to 2020. The Big Island of Hawaii is home to some of the most rivaling world class beaches anywhere on the planet. Hapuna Beach is just one of those special places where you can capture a sunset like no other. We are sharing this amazing photo with you and wish you were here.

Additionally in this Christmas Season blog we bring you some amazing visuals of two spectacular art work renditions painting in the Kings Shops at Waikoloa Beach resort. Located close by to Tiffany and Co. and Tori Richard. If you have not a chance to stroll and shop in this beautiful location you are simply missing out. The Big Island's Kohala Coast offers something for everyone when it comes to a high class shopping and dining experience.

Two Incredible Artwork Pieces in Waikoloa Beach Resort at Kings Shops:

The second one is just as breathtaking capturing old Hawaii for all visitors and residents to enjoy. Life on the Big Island is about simplicity and luxury all couple into one. Rather than having theme parks and sports stadiums to enjoy as a pastime, we find solace in the simple things. Like walking around and exploring the beautiful resorts of the Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii.

Some of the Most Exclusive Oceanfront and Ocean View Estates Can Be Found on Hawaii's Big Island Coastline

Mark Twain once said buy land their not making it anymore...

This theory still holds true more than ever before. The Hawaiian island chain was one of the most intriguing discoveries ever made by man. What would it be like to not have Hawaii? Out of all that each island has to offer (each one is remarkably different yet similar), the Big Island itself has a special mystical aura to it. What we mean by that is that it offers sparse locations with the super ability to feel free and unbothered. The Hamakua Coast especially boasts are nostalgic feeling that really can't be explained unless you have lived and breathed it in person.

As the world continues to adjust to the effects from the pandemic more and more people are continuing to look for places of solitude. Hawaii's coastline offers answers to some of these needs that buyers are seeking in order to fulfill the need for safety, security, and most of all peace of mind. Taking a drive around the Big Island can certainly be a long day if not spread out over a weekend or a few days. There is much to see and all kinds of different climates to experience. One of those exotic places is the South Kona Coast. With Ocean view estates sprawled out over untouched acreage, this area has become increasingly sought after by many who are looking for second homes and vacation escapes.

The Kohala Coast and North Kohala both offer some of the best sunsets anyone could ever ask for. Making the real estate that much more expensive and desirable all at the same time. Mauna Kea Resort is by far one of the most impressive locations available anywhere in all of the Pacific. Gated communities, luxury dream homes, and high end town homes are just a few. The North Kohala area is a little bit different and hopefully stays that way. It's residents and owners like it's appeal because it is not as developed as some of the Kohala Coast areas and resorts are. North Kohala is home approximately half a dozen of the most gracious gated communities imaginable. Kohala by the Sea, Kohala Ranch, and Kohala Waterfront are just three of them that will make your turn your head twice.
