Along the ocean in North Kohala Hawaii   Leave a comment

Hawaii Island, aka the Big Island is recognized as one of the top islands in the world by those whose leisurely travels turn vacations into homes.  The North Kohala district shows how true this is; its natural beauty entwined with the aloha of old Hawaii is a portal to a paradise past.  North Kohala will astound with its beauty and its history.

Driving through this vision of Old Hawaii, almost to its apex at Pololu Valley one will be surprised to see how a modern version of home has united contemporary architecture with this tropical lushness.   Seattle architect, Jim Culter of Cutler Anderson designed The “Ohana House at Niuli’i”  .  It is one of seven homes annually selected from the most interesting of homes worldwide to be designated a Record Home (Architectural Record 2007). The simple lines of the home contrast with the richness of the setting.

You have every classic big island view; ocean, cliffs, mountains, pastures and valleys in land that mixes rolling pastures and shady groves of trees; wind sculpted ironwoods, Palms, native Ha’o and ancient Hala groves along the rugged North Kohala coast.  Adjacent Keokea Beach Park has a black sand ocean entry where Keiki swim at the historic “canoe landing”.   This also serves as the launch to a very good “secret” surf spot and, in the right conditions, excellent snorkeling, diving and fishing.  Its ocean cliffs are favored among the Ulua fishermen.  This is one of those spots that feel like Old Hawaii….really.

The property if offered in three configurations.  The entire 72+acres (3 tmks) and home asking $8.2, the home on 24+ acres is $4,600,000, the two lower lots sold together at $3,600,000.

If you are curious about this property, go to or look at MLS#s 254130, 254131 and 254132.
