Laupahoehoe Property For Sale on the Big Island's Hamakua Coast

Located on the slopes of windward Mauna Kea is the old sugar town of Laupahoehoe.

Imagine seeing this view daily from (MLS# 23658) asking $2,495,000 for a 3,600+ sq. ft. home on nearly 20 acres of land

Laupahoehoe’s natural contrast of a rocky shoreline to its wet forests of ‘ohi’a and koa, wet grasslands, and small lakes makes it an area of interest to many people as well as wildlife. The endangered Hawaiian Hawk (I’o) makes its home here.

(MLS# 239833) asking $1,996,000—live on the edge of the Pali!

At about the 1,800—2,500 ft. elevation is an area referred to as the banana belt, having less rain that the neighboring areas of Hilo or Ahualoa. This area is great for grazing cattle or other livestock, and fertile and warm enough to grow bananas—usually found at sea level to about 7,000 ft. elevation.

(MLS# 237916) asking $239,000 for 18+ acres of land.

Nestled up at around the 1,800 ft. elevation are 18+ acres of beautiful open land. Although you need a 4-wheel drive to get there, it’s a small price to pay for the privacy and beauty of this property. Come and build your dream home away from your busy city life. Imagine relaxing on your new lanai at dusk with magnificent ocean views and the songs of the native birds coming home to rest, or riding your horse through the thousands of acres of open land.

Is Laupahoehoe calling you?

Lucy, I just love the “Banana Belt” area. I’m amazed at how often I can be driving from Waimea to Hilo in the rain and get to that area and … wow suddenly there’s no rain & no clouds.
It really does get much less rainfall than the rest of the Hamakua Coast – a good area for buyers if they are looking for an area a little dryer.
