When you’re looking at Kailua Kona real estate, rest assured you are choosing a home that puts you in close proximity to everything Kona has to offer. Located right in the center of the Big Island’s west coast, you will be within easy driving distance of many of the stunning beaches and exciting activities. This area is also located just 15 minutes from the south Kona International Airport, giving residents easy access to the other islands, as well as the rest of the world.

Spectacular Climate


As the most geographically diverse part of the island, residents and visitors to Kailua Kona will naturally be drawn to spend time outdoors. Beautiful weather unique to the west side, also known as the dry side, of the Big Island, boasts mild 70 to 80 degree temperatures and very little rainfall.

Rich History


Kailua Kona is home to many interesting historical sites, giving residents insight into the rich Hawaiian history. For instance, Hulihee Palace is a summer home of some of the Hawaiian monarchs. Kailua Village was once home to King Kamehameha, the first leader to unite the islands of Hawaii in the early 1800s.

Exciting Amenities


There’s no shortage of activities when you choose Kona for your home. An experienced realtor in Kailua Kona will help you discover everything the area has to offer. The city is filled with a wide variety of unique restaurants and inviting shops, world-class golf and authentic island entertainment.

Kailua Kona is home to the famous Kona coffee, which means easy access to coffee plantation tours. The Mauna Kea Summit is another must-see in the area. As the highest of the five volcanoes on The Big Island, it provides the ultimate sunset views above the clouds and is touted as a prime star-gazing location.

Ocean Activities


Not only are there boating tours that include fishing, whale watching and dolphin spotting, but the calm waters are perfect for diving and snorkeling. There are also, of course, an abundance of breathtaking beaches on which you can relax and soak up the sun.
