Market Update: Kohala Ranch - Estates - By the Sea - 06/28/10 12:52 PM
Kohala Ranch, Kohala Estates, Kohala By the Sea, Kohala Waterfront - four communities just minutes from the beaches and resort amenities of the Kohala Coast! A Just north of the famed Kohala Coast resorts on the Big Island of Hawaii lies the district of North Kohala. The three gated communities of Kohala by the Sea, Kohala Waterfront, Kohala Ranch--plus the gate-less neighborhood Kohala Estate -- are an obvious choice for newcomers ready to step beyond resort living. Twelve months ago there was a surplus of homes for sale in these communities as sales had ground to a halt. Over the past (5 comments)
Ready to Build Lot at Kohala By The Sea on the Big Island - 06/24/10 09:00 PM
For Kohala Coast real estate buyers ready to step outside the resorts and contemplate building a fine home on a vacant lot in a nearby gated community, Kohala By the Sea is often the first choice. Among its attractions: proximity to beaches and resort amenities, plus the "town" amenities of nearby Waimea. Lots that are 1-1.5 acres and more amenable to residential landscaping in contrast with the larger acreages of nearby Kohala Ranch. A steep slope to the community with roads laid out to protect the views of one row of house from intrusion by the houses below. The problem? Not (0 comments)
Waiulaula at Mauna Kea Condo Sales Update - 06/23/10 06:27 PM
We've had several clients trying to buy one of the distressed properties for sale at Wai'ula'ula, the luxury 3 bedroom condominium project at the Mauna Kea Resort. With beautiful finishes and sweeping views of the Kohala Coast, not to mention a nicely appointed fitness area and pool, Wai'ula'ula began looking like a best buy in 2009 when the developer closed out condos for $750-950,000; duplex homes for $1,200,000 and detached homes for under $2,000,000. The problem is that buyers who came to the party earlier paid twice as much. Owners who need to sell and did not pay cash are either (1 comments)
Which is the best Waikii Ranch Lot for Sale - 06/23/10 04:18 PM
I've written before that Waikii Ranch on Saddle Road just outside of Waimea (Kamuela) is the absolute top choice in Big Island real estate for the buyer wanting equestrian facilities. Truly, there are more serious horse owners per square mile in Waikii than any other gated community in Hawaii! You have miles of equestrian easements that are actually ridden daily, and arenas, a round pen and a polo field at your disposal.
The are horse-friendly Waikii Ranch homes are priced under $1,000,000, but there is also a big log-glass-stone home with guest cottage (7,000 sq ft) for $1,800,000 and the (0 comments)
25 Acre Ocean View Ranch Near Hawi - 06/22/10 10:40 PM
Love the idea of the upcountry paniolo ranching lifestyle but don't like the cold winter wind whipping into Waimea (Kamuela) from snow-capped Mauna Kea? Want big ocean views and year-round sunsets but not the resort lifestyle? Forget about Waikii Ranch or Kohala Ranch and try Puakea Ranch near Hawi in North Kohala.
Just listed at $2.2 million. Brand new home of 3703 sq ft with 1646 sq ft of covered lanai and an oversized garage. Big 25 acres stretching down towards the ocean keeps your view unobstructed (except for grazing cattle or maybe your horses on this beautiful property). (0 comments)
Halii Kai 16G, three bedroom three bath townhouse style with ocean view had lender approval at below the $750,000 asking price (with buyer to pay $30,000 of delinquent HOA dues), and the buyers were unable to move forward as the property they'd hoped to sell fell out of escrow. Halii Kai 17D is a 2 bed, 2 bath ocean view unit that is fully furnished with consistent rental history. At only (1 comments)
Kohala Fitness Station in Kapaau, Hawaii Shuts its Doors - 06/09/10 04:13 PM
For the past two years, residents of the Kapaau and Hawi area have been blessed with a fitness facility created in an old service station building. We enjoyed the circuit, cardio equipment, Zumba classes and yoga. But with the continued weak economy, even some of the most enthusiastic members found themselves needing to cut their membership to make ends meet.
However, all is not lot, as there is a possibility we can move the equipment to the recently renovated gym at Kamehameha Park. The North Kohala Community Resource Center has received donations of almost half the amount necessary to purchase (0 comments)
