With reverence for the land and an oceanfront setting, Hōkūli‘a is some of the most tempting real estate along the Kona Coast.
When development on Hawai‘i is done right—with respect to tradition, reverence for the land and native wisdom—heads are turned and we step closer to a sustainable, mutually beneficial relationaship for both developers and locals. In this respect, Hōkūli‘a is star student.
Although this stretch of land has been in development for over 20 years, it breathes new life with Hawai‘i Life now at the helm of the sales and marketing efforts for its real estate portfolio. It’s a slow and steady kind of pace, but for those who are longtime owners in this private enclave or are looking to get in on the ground as phase two lots are released, speed has never been a factor.
81-6575 Hia‘ai‘ono Place is on the market for $7,995,000.
While the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course is a main draw for Hōkūli‘a, at its center is the essence of the land. Nestled within the sizable lots, which will be released in several phases, are significant historical sites. In fact, this land was once a bustling village.
The houses here are all custom, with design and landscaping requirements in place to ensure community cohesion. But, and particularly beneficial to the times in which we live, there is no required time frame for building your dream home atop your perfect piece of Hawai‘i.
The Club’s Pavilion Restaurant
In one home, now on the market for $7,995,000, contemporary design is married with an affinity for outdoor living. On entrance, the view takes center stage, with all design elements bowing to it. The palette is a coastal-chic mix of soft whites and punches of blue throughout. The interior glass pocket sliding doors open to afford a true indoor-outdoor lifestyle, and the lanai overlooks the golf course, an ancient Hawaiian navigational landmark and the coastline beyond. It’s as if the infinity pool dips straight into the sea below. As a final nod to the outdoors, each of the four bedrooms has an outdoor shower to accompany its en suite bathroom.
Real estate isn’t the only thing that draws people to Hōkūli‘a. The amenities at The Club of Hōkūli‘a are topnotch too. Beyond the golf course, which weaves throughout the original phase of the development, there is tennis; a yoga studio; hiking trails; swimming; The Club at Hōkūli‘a’s Pavilion Restaurant, which serves superfresh seafood; and a special partnership with the Hōkūliʻa Park and Cultural Sites Association. Cultural liaison La Crivello will guide you through the protected land trust at the front edge of the property, noting culturally significant sites, archeological finds and wildlife. Lots $500,000-$7,500,000, 81-6636 Pu’u Ohau Place, Kealakekua
