Cost of Living the Kohala Coast Resorts Lifestyle – Part 1

If you ever had a chance to take a vacation on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii (also called the Gold Coast) don’t tell me you never thought that your vacations were not long enough and that you were not already dreaming about coming back as soon as you left the island. When you think of Hawaiian white sand beaches, swaying palm trees, whales breaching, and amazing sunsets come to mind.

Three distinguished resorts along the Kohala Coast offer diverse housing options for those of you who desire making their vacation destination their home-away-from-home. The picture postcard kind of beauty that is the Kohala Coast’s most exquisite resorts with luxury homes and elegant condos is what buyers are actively seeking, but they get much more. They are also purchasing a lifestyle. Comfort, security, quality of life, and year round perfect weather are part of the lifestyle of a resort resident.

Mauna Kea Resort

There is no substitute to the oldest resort of the Kohala Coast named Mauna Kea Resort. Situated on beautiful Kauna’oa Bay, it has access to all the amenities of 2 luxury Big Island beach hotels including golf, tennis, a spa, and fine dining.

Eleven developments at Mauna Kea offer a variety of premier properties for those looking to buy real estate here with a diversity in prices, views, and features. Surounded by the Hapuna Golf Course designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, you could consider an ownership at the Mauna Kea with a label price way under $1 million – the lowest price of two bedroom Kumulani units at Mauna Kea start at $470,000.

If you prefer the convenient location closer to Mauna Kea Beach and Robert Trent Jones golf course, the price tag could go up to $6,595,000 and you would be spoiled with a 4,479 sq.ft. custom home, 4 bedroom suites, a superb layout, and ocean/sunset views perched on a 0.6 acre knoll at Mauna Kea Fairways North. The perfect luxury resort home!

Just a few miles to the south, Mauna Lani Resort also offers championship golf courses, a private beach club, incredible dining experiences, recreational activities, fun amenities, and diverse real estate options. I will go over them in detail in my next blog, “Cost of Living the Kohala Coast Resorts Lifestyle  – part 2”. Until then, if you seek an extraordinary lifestyle, just like described above, feel free to call me for a coastline tour!

Catherine! You highlighted in such a great way all the reasons so many people do feel the Kohala Coast is the perfect spot on earth! And most of these folks have had their taste of the finest destinations in the world and still choose our own backyard:-) Mahalo!!!

As a former Alaskan, the Big Island was my favorite vacation place. As the number of trips per year to the Big Island turned into 4 or 5 visits a year, I knew it was time to say hello to the Big Island and make the move. I wanted to come for all the reasons you outlined in this article.
Wow, it’s mind boggeling to me that you can pick up a condo for under $500,000 at Kumulani !
I look forward to reading about Mauna Lani…write on!
