Makalei Estates Stunner – A Contemporary Luxury Home in Kailua-Kona

I absolutely love Makalei Estates and couldn’t be more excited to share this unique property with you. Makalei Estates is a beautiful gated community just minutes from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Nestled on the slopes of Hualalai, Makalei Estates provides privacy and elevation to give you that “top of the world” feeling and endless ocean views.

Noteworthy Features

Your journey into this refuge begins at the graceful custom entry gates – a work of art in themselves. The palm tree lined driveway meanders through colorful croton, coffee and citrus trees, birds of paradise, bromeliads, hibiscus, bougainvillea, and fields of monstera, just to name a few.

The gourmet kitchen is warm and well appointed with Caesarstone countertops, swing up/gull wing custom cabinets, Dacor and Miele appliances – just a few luxury finishes.


The kitchen offers continuity into a large dining room space with a ten-foot wooden enclave wine storage as a backdrop for a dinner party to remember.


The spacious master suite in the North Wing has a wrap-around lanai, features an expansive walk-in closet, indoor/outdoor shower, and unique high-end fixtures throughout the bathroom.



This spacious home features 3 South Wing bedrooms – perfect for sharing space with friends and guests.

Outside is a gateway to leisure at its finest. Enjoy the 360 vistas from your crystal clear pool, tiki torches, BBQ with loved ones, enjoy chipping and putting greens to hone your short game.


Create your own coffee label with the 200+ coffee trees furnishing the lower slopes of this exquisite property. This home was loved and kept immaculately by the original owners and is sold fully furnished (with some exclusions). Priced below build cost of $2.7M.


Come home to a work of art. It’s time, you’ve earned it!



I’ve sold several homes in Makalei Estates over the last few years and I truly consider it to be one of the best places for luxury living on the Big Island. Between the privacy, elevated sweeping ocean views, proximity to town and the airport, and the collection of beautiful homes – it really doesn’t get much better.
