What does North Kohala Hawaii have in comment with Camelot?

Real Estate Agent with Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers Big Island

An old show tune kept running through my mind as our land-only North Kohala real estate broker caravan wandered from Makapala to Hawi recently.  And if I tell you the tune, you might wonder: What does North Kohala at the tip of the Island of Hawai'i have in common with Camelot?


  • The rain must never fall till after sundown.  Although visitors are often struck when they round the corner into Hawi, North Kohala at how the color of the land changes from straw brown to lush green, our days are generally clear.  Most nights, I sleep to the pitter-patter of rain drops.
  • July and August cannot be too hot. Turning the corner from the west-facing side of the island to the north-facing shores also brings us into the zone where trade winds caress us most days of the year. Even in the hottest months of summer, our temperatures in Hawi and Kapaau can be 5 degrees below the highs in Kona or along the Kohala Coast resorts.
  • And there's a legal limit to the snow here. Actually, we were very surprised when the heavy rains and thunderstorms that hit Kailua Kona last week resulted in a rare May snowstorm at the top of Mauna Kea!

So what does North Kohala, Hawaii have in common with Camelot?  In short there's simply not, a more congenial spot for happy ever aftering than....here.

Beth, that does sound very delightful, a paradise. 

Sincerely, a Realtor that lives in Colorado - which would be paradise if it would simply rain a little more. 

Good post.

Sondra, there are so many areas here on the Big Island that remind me of Colorado in the summer time!
