The Beach at the Mauna Kea Resort
One of the most renowned Big Island Resorts is the Mauna Kea Hotel and Resort. Founded by Laurance Rockefeller in the 60’s – it has stood out as one of the great hotels in Hawaii. Located in a protected bay on the Kohala Coast, its location was chosen not only for its beauty but also for its close proximity to the farms of Waimea. To this day, the farm to table concept permeates the hotel and resort culture. Mauna Kea meshes natural beauty with structure and design. Staying at the hotel can lead one to wonder “what is it like to be more than just a guest of this special place?”
Recently I had clients who asked that same question. Together, we found a home at Mauna Kea Fairways South – one in a group of homes in a planned unit development (PUD) with plenty of buffer space between homes. This creates a natural, private landscape and reiterates the Mauna Kea “mesh” of natural beauty with structures.
This home boasts a great ocean view with a pool and built-in spa. The covered lanai is enormous creating a shaded indoor-outdoor living area for dining, relaxing or entertaining. A separate building has two bedrooms for additional guests. A short term vacation rental permit makes this home able to rent to guests for periods of less than 30 days. With the Resort Club Membership program, members and their guests can enjoy golf, tennis, beach and pool access at both the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Hotel Resorts. Add it all up and it was a great match for my clients.
No, my clients are not quite ready to re-sell (but the property is rentable – click here for info). Instead, here are two similar listings currently available for sale at Mauna Kea Fairways South.
This listing at Mauna Kea Fairways South (MLS 634374) has been completely remodeled. For just under $3M – it is one of the better values in the community.
Also listed just under $3M is Mauna Kea Fairways South #12 (MLS 636470). With cathedral ceilings and Koa Wood floors throughout – this home is absolutely worth a look.
If your budget allows, this listing at $7.295M (MLS 625326) boasts some of the best views at the resort, and possibly along the entire Kohala Coast.
