Kealakekua Real Estate


If you were to awake, transported here from sleep, this mountainside upcountry Hawaiian town would feel just like that first magical morning you ever awoke in Hawaii. The beauty and serenity of the Big Island’s upcountry towns and communities are so close to paradise you’d probably try to think of a way to be sure you weren’t still dreaming. It is mesmerizing to the mind and soul to see the blue sky above meeting the beautiful Pacific down below, stretching out forever and feel endless caressing breezes painting the sky, earth and ocean with undulating white and blue with shadows and light dancing on the landscape and the sea.


This is truly a location like no other in the world. Plantation style homes with panoramic views of the quiet Kona coast 1,500 feet below these lower slopes of Mauna Loa. From here, you see Hawaii as it was in centuries past. Much of the local feel is obtained by a blend of the imposing slopes of Hawaii's highest mountain, rising up another two miles above the homes here, and of its own elevation above sea level as if perfectly balanced between heaven and earth. Dry and mild all year, people require little in the way of heating or cooling. Owners of real estate in Kealakekua find themselves living as if perpetually waking up to the last days of May all year long.


This unique natural sustained climate zone supports Hawaii’s famous Kona coffee plantations and other small farms and agricultural industries throughout the region.


A home in Kealakekua has the quintessential Hawaiian upcountry feeling, yet it is close to town and amenities of Kailua Kona. The old highway winds through town and down toward the ocean to all the attractions, entertainment and services of the bustling tourist destinations below. You’ll find, with the help of a knowledgeable local agent, that there is something in Kealakekua real estate to choose from for everyone. Many homes have a spectacular elevated view of the ocean 1500 feet below. You can live easy and comfortably with fewer needs and hassles of the busier city below. There are quaint shops and small restaurants. Away from all the busyness of tourist areas, this is home for many who just enjoy the quiet spring-like environment all year round.


Discover your own perfect paradise with an agent who will ensure your paradise is obtained at the best price and value for your investment. Call me for help with your new Hawaiian home purchase. I’ll be sure you get the most in your home purchase.
