Makalei Estates: Big Ocean Views in Kona

If you are looking for a larger lot in sunny Kona on the Big Island with impressive coastal views, READ THIS BLOG.

This ocean view 3-acre lot is being offered at $399,000.

Imagine your custom home here with ocean and sunset views every day of the year.

A quiet gated community near everything!

Makalei Estates is a hidden gem located 15 minutes from the Kona Airport. It is a small community with 3 – 4 acre lots at an elevation of 1000ft providing privacy and comfort. Enter the gate from the “upper road” in Kona, and you will find some gorgeous views and beautiful homes.

While you feel like you are away from it all, you are only 15 minutes to Kailua-Kona’s shopping, restaurants, and vacation activities. Honokohau Harbor is nearby for ocean excursions or for boat enthusiasts to store their fishing, sailing or dive boats.  Pristine sandy beaches, like Kua Bay, are also close by.

Sun drenched beaches like this are scattered north of Kona and the Kohala Coast

What’s on the Market?

Currently, there are 8 lots for sale in Makalei Estates ranging in price for $329,000-$429,000 for 3 to 4 acres. In the last year, 4 parcels sold for $306,000 – 495,000.

Three homes are listed, ranging from $1,599,000 – $2,450,000 for 3200-5600 square foot custom homes. In the past year, 3 homes sold between $1,098,000 – $1,950,000.

There is nothing more relaxing than poolside at dusk.

Except, maybe, poolside on a warm sunny day.


There are 81 three to four plus acre lots in the Estates, on which about 1/3 have homes. The utilities including electric, cable, telephone, and municipal water are underground. There are CCRs and Homeowner’s Association fees of $70/month. The elevation is 1800 ft at the top of the development and 1000 ft at the lower end. This provides cooler temperatures often desired in Kona.
