NEIGHBORHOOD SPOTLIGHT-KONA VISTAS
When moving to West Hawaii, many people enjoy being centrally located to the beaches, shopping, and restaurants, while also enjoying elevation and views.
Kona Vistas subdivision, in the heart of Kailua-Kona, fits all those aspects and more!
Located conveniently only two miles from Kailua Village, Kona Vistas subdivision rests along the slopes of Hualalai between 400-700 feet elevation, providing cooler temperatures than oceanfront living.
Defining features in this neighborhood include two private tennis courts, a pavilion and recreation center, terraced rock walls, thoughtful tropical landscaping, and sweeping panoramic ocean views from many of the homes in this neighborhood.
Average lot sizes range from 1500 sq ft to a half acre, and the neighborhood offers a combination of custom built and developer built homes. As of September 2020, average home prices are $900,000 to $1.7 million. Kona Vistas also offers wide streets and streetlights and underground utilities, so power lines do not obstruct the stellar ocean views.
Currently, Association fees are $60/month and there are CC&R’s to help protect your investment. Kona Vistas was developed in two phases, with phase 1 on the North side of Lako Street, and phase 2 on the South side. The 173-acre Kona Vistas project sits mauka of Kuakini Highway and was first started in 1984.
The popular Walua Road walking and biking trail borders the bottom of the Kona Vistas subdivision with the trailhead at Lako Street. This paved trail, with an abundance of shady trees and fragrant flowers extends 3 miles south, and has some areas restricted to non-motorized vehicles such as bikes, skates or pedestrians. Joggers, dog walkers and strollers are a common sight with the trail acting as a community hub for this desirable neighborhood.
