South Kohala Real Estate

South Kohala

Mauna Kea, the “tallest mountain on earth” presides like the King Kamehameha who grew up on its slopes. South Kohala Coast real estate is shielded from much of the island’s annual rainfall by the great mountain. This is the resort area of the world. Ancient black lava flows form outcroppings into the sea interspersed with beaches of every color. Sea life is abundant in the coves and inlets popular for snorkeling. Some of the world’s richest who can own homes virtually anywhere have chosen the Kohala coast for their Hawaiian home. Here, you will find the crème de la crème of Hawaii’s five-star resorts and championship golf courses in idyllic settings like Hapuna Beach where cerulean blue sea teeming with life meets white sandy beaches, rugged lava outcroppings and emerald green golf courses with palm trees swaying in the perpetual tropical breezes.

Although South Kohala Coast real estate is known for luxury homes priced in the millions of dollars, adjacent communities like Waikoloa Village feature homes and condos well under $300,000 in resort settings with full amenities and membership privileges giving homeowners access to private clubs, golf courses and facilities. Many homes and communities are found on the rising slopes of Mauna Kea giving homeowners spectacular views of the ocean, year-round color drenched sunsets and the neighboring island of Maui.
