Few Properties Remain Available Within Kauna’oa at Mauna Kea on the Big Island

The window of opportunity to own an estate lot or luxury town home at Kauna’oa is nearly closed.

Available Kauna’oa Properties

The past year welcomed several new, ecstatic Kauna’oa property owners who purchased 5 of the 6 Hali’a Hale town homes that were offered and 3 estate lot re-sales.

1. Hali’a Hale 7A is the only remaining developer town home. It is a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom town home with 3,132 sq.ft. of living area (MLS# 229396) priced at $2,100,000. Currently, there are no re-sales.

Lot 17

2. Lot 17 is my favorite parcel in Mauna Kea due to the unobstructed ocean and sunset views and its private, corner location perched high above the 10th fairway of the Mauna Kea Beach Golf Course (MLS# 242623). It is 1.3 acres priced at $3,000,000.

What is Kauna‘oa?

Kauna’oa is an amazing luxury resort-residential community, located just steps from Mauna Kea’s white sand beach. It has become a beloved home-away-from-home for those seeking high-end real estate in a comfortable, amenity-rich atmosphere of understated elegance.

Other Kauna’oa features include:

  • Intimate gated residential enclave in the heart of the Mauna Kea Resort
  • Rises over magnificent Kauna‘oa Bay
  • Surrounded by the world-renowned Mauna Kea Golf Course
  • 28 custom estate sites and 20 duplex town homes
  • Sweeping ocean, mountain, and golf course views

Opportunity for Mauna Kea Club Membership

The Par 3 Practice Course was created by Weiskopf Designs Group exclusively for owners and their guests. The Kauna‘oa Private Country Club facility, with breathtaking views, is also exclusively for owners and their guests, featuring a free-form swimming pool and spa, exercise pavilion, luxurious locker rooms/spa, cabanas, full kitchen, BBQ, refrigerated wine room with individual wine lockers, and an on-site residential concierge.

I am privileged to spend a lot of time with friends/clients who own at Kauna’oa. It is obvious to me when I compare Kohala Coast communities, that Kauna’oa has become one of the most sought-after. Do you picture yourself in this tropical Eden? If so, time is of the essence to benefit from the last remaining developer inventory at Kauna’oa.

Annie, did you know that Kauna’oa is actually that thin yellow/orange vine wrapped around naupaka and palm trees? The beach used to be full of them down there. I just found that out two weekends ago!

@ Katie! Yes! I often see the naupaka draped with the Kauna’oa. I hear that is one of the reasons Mauna Kea’s symbol is orange. Have you felt it? It’s deceiving…feels just like seaweed! I think I even took a little bite once. LOL:-) I should make sure it’s not poisonous before trying that again. I have pictures of the vine…any ideas on best place to share the pics? Here’s a link in the Hawaiian dictionary. http://wehewehe.org/gsdl2.5/cgi-bin/hdict?e=q-0hdict–00-0-0–010—4—-den–0-000lp0–1en-Zz-1—Zz-1-home-kaunaoa–00031-0010utfZz-8-00&a=q&d=D7411

Great update, Annie! What are the maintenance fees for Halia Hale #7A?

Great update, Annie! What are the maintenance fees for Halia Hale #7A?

Annie Mendoza, (RS)

July 14, 2012

@Catherine! HOA Fees for Halia Hale are a combo of three different fees and come in one bill from the Property Manager, (Augustine). The total as of today is $5241.89 per month for the Villas, (7.14.12). So, what that includes is 1) the HOA fee for having the condominiumized unit, 2) HOA fee for being in the exclusive Kauna’oa community, and 3) Master HOA Fee being within the Mauna Kea/Hapuna Resort.The Villa fees cover just about everything but electricity, gas, phone/cable and any fees paid to a Property Manager if one is desired. Utility costs vary depending on how much the unit is being used. Each Villa has their own pool, and the fees cover the cost of all pool maintenance, all landscaping, (individual villa owners and common areas) the amenity center with pool, fitness, etc, the 3-par private course, gate, security, wine locker, concierge and maintenance of all the exterior and infrastructure not within the walls of the individual units, (paid with reserve funds). So, for Villa owners, practically everything is taken care of. The units can be “vacation rented” also. For the owners in the community who own a lot , their HOA fee is approximately $2600 per month and they have addtional cost to hire their own pool, landscaping, etc for their private area. That amount can vary but I have examples of that, too! Hope this answers your question!
