Kohala Waterfront on the Big Island of Hawaii – Have You Heard of it?

Kohala Waterfront is one of the Big Island’s best-kept secrets. It is a little known oceanfront community nestled along the Kohala Coast of the Big Island.

Prestigious Community, Great Location

Conveniently located just three miles north of Kawaihae with its shops, restaurants, and outdoor activities like kayaking, sailing, and surfing, Kohala Waterfront is nestled on the makai (ocean) side of Akoni Pule Highway. Featuring just 50 house lots, the small, gated enclave of luxury homes is like a hidden pearl tucked in along the coastline. If you are not paying attention, it is easy to miss as you drive along the highway. Yes, it is gated, but don’t let that stop you, just call me at 808.987.7931 and I’ll arrange a tour for you.

Views Galore!

The expansive and unobstructed ocean views bring daily sunsets and seasonal whale watching into your future home. Views of Kawaihae Bay, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Hualalai are absolutely phenomenal from Kohala Waterfront. Read all about these gorgeous views in this oceanfront views blog written by my colleague. Nothing says “Hawaii Life” quite like looking out from your property at frolicking humpback whales!

Kohala Waterfront Terrain

The terrain of Kohala Waterfront rises from sea level to an elevation of 230 feet and the developers carefully planned the house lots to offer maximum ocean and mountain views. Underground utilities ensure these views are uninterrupted. What’s more, homeowner association dues are very modest, especially when compared to the resort areas.

Let’s enjoy a beautiful sunset with beach chairs and toast from Lot #11! Contact me and I’ll set it up.

With Aloha!
