Kohanaiki: A Luxury Residential Community on the Big Island of Hawaii

Kohanaiki is a gated, oceanfront community on the world-renowned Kona Coast and it’s the most recent luxury residential development to be constructed here. With an attractive new gated entrance with light signals for easy access from and into the community, newly emerging neighborhoods and recently completed world-class amenities, demand is strong for real estate opportunities.

One of the things my clients love most about this casually elegant property is the variety of options available from estate sites to single-family custom homes and villas. Another huge draw is the opportunity for property owners to join the Kohanaiki Club and enjoy the many benefits of membership. Among them, unlimited golf on the Rees Jones-designed championship course, a state-of-the-art fitness center, numerous swimming pools, and the incomparable 67,000 sq. ft. Kohanaiki Clubhouse and Spa created by noted San Francisco architect Shay Zak. This comfortable, expansive space also houses the club’s signature restaurant under the direction of Executive Chef Patrick Heymann, a 21-seat movie theatre, a four-lane bowling alley, and an adults-only cigar and card room. The Beach Club offers casual dining and numerous activities for ocean sports lovers.

Currently, I’m pleased to have five attractive properties listed and available for purchase at the resort.
