Many visitors come for brief visits to see the Kilauea Lighthouse and Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, but those who linger longer discover thereâ€™s a lot to offer in this small north shore community.
Originally a sugar plantation, Kilauea Town has flourished into a residential community with many modern day conveniences. There are public and private schools, several places of worship, medical facilities, numerous unique shopping opportunities, a salon, natural food grocer, restaurants, a bakery, an ice cream and video rental store, and more all within close walking distance. Youâ€™ll also find a community center with a gym and adjacent lighted baseball/soccer field where a variety of activities and events take place.
A new community facility just outside of Kilauea Town has recently broken ground mauka of the highway, and will feature an 18-hole miniature golf course with botanical garden and clubhouse in its first phase. A second phase is said to include a multi-purpose amphitheater.
With all these amenities and Kilaueaâ€™s close proximity to several beautiful beaches, its no surprise Kilauea Townâ€™s real estate market has seen a fair amount of activity so far this year. There are currently 8 homes listed for sale from the mid $300K to $600K. In this price range, there have been 11 sales and another 6 are in escrow to date. Kilauea town had only four residential sales in this price range in 2008.
