The Big Island – Magical Hamakua Coast Luxury Property For Sale
Last month, I had the joy of attending Beverly Molfino’s Hawaii Life Big Island Hamakua Coast Caravan. It should have been titled, “What you don’t know about the Big Island’s Hamakua Coast.”
Secret gems, like this one nestled in Papaikou, are found on the Hamakua Coast (MLS# 246336), asking $1,650,000
Ever since writing about the Hamakua Coast’s hydroelectric property for sale, I get about an inquiry per week from someone interested in knowing more about this unique property. So, I was surprised to discover that this property (above) is located adjacent to that property.
Wow, this place envelopes you with its warmth and gracious kama’aina living, clear respect for the land, and incredible love of gardening and farming. It’s hard to believe this is located so close to Hilo town, and yet feels so private and rural.
This oceanfront estate home recently reduced their asking price to $1,999,000; It feels to me like walking into a ship!
Very comfortable, yet complete with all the amenities—and really—who cares when you have ocean views like this? Located in a historical Hakalau (with its secret post office) and is very private at the end of a road, this property not only has to-die-for oceanfront views, but also contains separate guest quarters, perfect for those friends and family visiting from the mainland who can’t get enough of those views. (ie: extended stays, they happen—a lot—in Hawaii.
At the end of the tour, we had lunch on the lanai of this incredible luxury estate home for sale below, also in Hakalau.
This home (MLS# 245897) boasts six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and over 6,000 sq. ft. of living space, asking $3.5M
I was ready to move in, right then and there. This estate has two oceanfront cabanas and a separate caretaker’s apartment. I asked the seller if I could live in the cabana…unfortunately for me, his answer was no!
Doesn’t this property look like its own fully-contained oceanfront resort? It sure felt like it to me. They had to pry me off my lanai chair for the drive back to Puako Beach—and for those of you who follow my blog and know how I feel about Puako, that’s saying something.
Who knew that views and luxury estate homes like this one existed on the Hamakua Coast? Beverly Molfino, R(S), that’s who!
