When prospective Kohala Coast real estate buyers ask me whether I think prices have hit bottom, I answer that it depends on where they are looking. Some communities--Mauna Lani Point and Mauna Lani Terrace come to mind--have barely edged down off peak prices and are unlikely to given the composition of the seller pool and the high demand for those locations. Others--beachfront Kolea being an example--have become a split market, with distress sales (those somewhere in the foreclosure pipeline, whether short sale or REO) at 50% or less than the peak, and non-distress sales of desirable units at a rather large premium to the distress sales. What happens next is anyone's guess, but it appears we may be nearing the end of the distress sale inventory. I have frequent calls from agents with...
We just added four villas at Kolea to our vacation rental program this July. We are really excited about the selection because they are each very unique and offer different locations within Kolea. Kolea 9J is a two bedroom villa that was just recently purchased. 9J offers a nice corridor ocean view and offers closer proximity to the Kolea Beach Club and ocean than most two bedroom villas at Kolea. Kolea 4F and Kolea 4D are both three bedroom villas and new to the rental program and still have a very new feel to them. The location of these two villas within Kolea is a very private setting and overlooks one of the few vacant lots remaining at Kolea. Kolea 4F is located on the third floor and offers a spectacular panoramic ocean view and offers a great setting for sunsets and whale wat...
There are at least three island tour boat companies that will take you on an adventure to see what's down under.

#1. THE PEOPLE. There is a minimum of hustle and bustle here, which results in a casual and relaxed environment. From the celebrities staying at the Four Seasons to the locals hanging out at the Beach, everyone seems to have a perpetual smile on their face.

#2. THE RESORTS. The Kohala Coast is home to some of the finest resorts in the world. From the exclusiveness of Kukio to the classic old Hawaii charm of the Mauna Kea, to the Mauna Lani and the Waikoloa Beach Resort in between, there is truly something for everyone.

Just recently we acquired Kolea 4E, which is one of the most desireable villas at Kolea at Waikoloa Beach Resort. It is situated at the end of the "front row" of Kolea just behind a vacant lot giving it one of the most private settings at Kolea. It is also one of the few front row villas that primarily overlooks the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean versus A'Bay. Overlooking these waters allows for some great whale watching in the winter months. This 2,200 square foot villa has beautiful ocean views from the majority of the villa including the main living area, the master bedroom, and the master bathroom. The villa has been thoroughly furnished to give vacationers ultimate comfort. The most breathtaking features of the large Kolea villas are the spacious lanais. The lanai at Kolea ...
3. THE BEACHES. Sprinkled along the Kohala Coast are some of the world's finest beaches. Hapuna Beach near the Mauna Kea is consistently rated among the top 10 beaches in the world. You can also find many secluded and relatively unknown places, such as Beach 69 near Puako.
#4. THE OCEAN. In most places, the water is relatively shallow here for a great distance from the shore. Couple this with a multitude of reefs and underwater lava formations, and the result is outstanding snorkeling, diving, and swimming.

#5. GOLF. You could stay here for weeks and never play the same course twice. The signature holes of the resort courses are stunning and are among the most photographed in the world. The Kohala Coast is home to several PGA events, but you also have to dodge the wild turkeys and goats to play at the local course in Waikoloa Village.

#7. DINING. The Kohala Coast is home to some of the finest restaurants in the world. Of particular note is the Blue Dragon in Kawaihae. Enclosed but open to the stars at night, listen to live music while enjoying unique Hawaiian cuisine. #6. SHOPPING. Tiffany's to the kiosks of the local artisans.

#9. THE WEATHER. Living here is reminiscent of the movie "Ground Hog Day." Just assume it will be beautiful, and you'll be correct. There is a minimum of rainfall. The temperature variation between summer and winter is much less than that between day and night. #8. THE VOLCANOES. Simply spectacular. Mauna Kea in particular is one of the most unique places on the planet; it is home to some of the most sophisticated observatories in the world. The sunsets there, above the clouds, are something you will never forget. #7. WHALES. The winter months are a very special time on the Kohala Coast. The yearly visits of the humpbacks, with their breaching and tail slapping, are a sight to behold. In February you can't look at the ocean without seeing one. Johnny McElree email@example.com w...
