Big Island

Escape to Hawaii for the Ultimate Safe Haven!

When people talk about living in Hawaii, the first thing that comes to mind is usually beautiful beaches, warm ocean, and a welcome dose of Aloha.

Hawaii has much more to offer than just the perfect climate, breathtaking nature, and friendly culture. Hawaii, and the Big Island, in particular, provide the ultimate safe haven with the best quality of life in the country and, perhaps, even in the world.

Safety and security are on the top of the list for many of my buyer clients wanting to move here. That is not just because the crime rate here is one of the lowest in the country. In addition, living in a warm climate means easier survival in case of energy and food shortages or any other mishaps that life may throw our way. Many homes are already equipped with solar panels, along with the abundance of land and climate diversity, to allow the growth of fresh food year-round.

Maintaining lifestyle security is also essential to many people, which is easy to do here on the Big Island. With 11 different climate zones, you will need to find the right location that suits your needs and desires. In this blog post, I write about the Kohala Ranch and why you should consider it if you plan to buy a property in Hawaii.

About Kohala Ranch

Kohala Ranch is located on the beautiful North Kohala coast on the island of Hawaii. This guarded and gated community of more than 3500 acres can be accessed from the coastal Akoni Pule Highway, just above the Pacific Ocean, and continues upward on Kohala Ranch Road towards the rolling green hills and meadows along the mountain road, with an additional access gate.

The elevation ranges from 120 feet above sea level to 3000 feet above sea level, providing varied climates and terrain to suit every preference. The weather is usually cooler in the Summit, which is the upper area of the Ranch, so if you are not a fan of the heat, that might be a perfect spot for you. You are still close to the best beaches on the island and all the luxury amenities that the resort life has to offer (it is only a 10-minute drive from Mauna Kea Beach Resort), yet you can enjoy the privacy of living on an acreage away from it.

The panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean to the west, the three mountains, Hualalai, Mauna Loa, and Mauna Kea to the south, the Kohala mountains to the northeast, and Maui’s Haleakala to the northwest — all are truly breathtaking and magical.

Home lots vary in size from under one acre to five acres in the lower elevation Heathers I and Heathers II, three to five acres in mid-elevation Meadows I and Meadows II, to ten acres in the upper elevation summit. Underground utilities, including water, electricity, telephone, and cable lines, run to property lines, preserving the magnificent unencumbered vistas and open spaces on the Ranch.

Kohala Ranch is an actual ranch — plenty of room for your animals! Homeowners can have horses, and you can grow anything you want there, from avocado, citrus, mango, breadfruit, and starfruit to indigenous hardwoods and vegetables.

The community is very friendly, and you can find great social networking opportunities while living there. At the same time, you can enjoy complete privacy in your home, contemplating expansive ocean vistas and fabulous sunsets. You truly get the best of both worlds when you live here!

We’re thinking of visiting the Big Island next year. I haven’t been back there in 10 years or more. Where’s the best and most economical area to stay? We don’t care for touristy activities.
