Which 2 Property Features Does Every Hawaii Home Buyer Want?

Can you guess the two most popular property features in Hawaii? Selling real estate in Hawaii for over a decade has taught me a few things about the commonality of almost every Buyer. You’re in Hawaii, or you’re moving to Hawaii. What is the number one thing you’d love to see out your window as you rise in the morning? The Pacific Ocean, of course!

1. Pacific Ocean Views

Ocean views come in many shapes and sizes; from the “peek-a-boo” ocean view to the full frontal oceanfront vistas of some estates. It doesn’t matter if your budget is $200,000 or $2 million, everyone wants an ocean view!


The ocean views at 13-683 Pohoiki Road are breathtaking, especially as the early morning sun rises over the horizon

Why not wake up and enjoy your morning coffee or tea with the sunrise over the Pacific as your view? Or how about watching the winter season whales breach in the evening, with a cocktail in your hand…from your very own lanai? Yes, an ocean view is the epitome of Hawaiian living.

Ocean views are a pretty obvious real estate desire. The second one is becoming harder to find.

2. Privacy

On the Big Island of Hawaii, privacy is still attainable. With many properties offering acreage together with the lush Hawaiian jungle, privacy from neighbors is affordable too!


The privacy on over seven acres of agricultural land is peaceful and allows you to be the master of your Universe

Whether you are a writer needing to retreat into nature to write your great American novel, or you are retiring away from a bustling urban area, privacy gives you that wonderful feeling of being the only human around for miles. 

Privacy gives you the chance to garden in the buff, or sunbathe without tan lines. With utter privacy, you can wake up to the sounds of song birds and fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing (if you’re close enough to the ocean!!).

For Sale: Big Island Property with Desirable Hawaii Features

It can be difficult to find both ocean views and privacy. Many ocean-close neighborhoods have small lots with close neighbors. Large parcels of acreage affording privacy are often in up country areas far away from the ocean. So it is rare indeed to find both of the most popular property features in one property. I have the distinct pleasure of representing this unique property on Pohoiki Road in Pahoa, Hawaii on the Big Island.


Ocean views and privacy are both yours at 13-683 Pohoiki Road in Pahoa, Hawaii (MLS# 269115)
