As Kona’s newest private equity club and residential community, Kohanaiki is becoming the face of luxurious living in a relaxed and friendly island setting. Last December, Kohanaiki even hosted a star-studded New Year’s Eve to welcome 2014. The fete’s guest list included actor Don Cheadle and partner actress Bridgid Coulter and singer Lisa Fischer, who performed for the attendees.
Over 450 acres were offered in the exclusive Kohanaiki neighborhood since April 2013, with one-acre home sites valued at around $1.5 to $5 million. Located a few miles north of Kailua-Kona, the community takes pride in a pristine shoreline extending 1.5 miles, which was truly a hit among the most discerning buyers. They were especially thrilled over spectacular views of the Mauna Loa, Kohala and Hualalai mountains, the Pacific Ocean, and the Kona coast.
Last year’s by-invitation sale saw the developer of this prestigious community, Kohanaiki Shores LLC, meeting up with the buyers of luxury residences, which Chief Operating Officer Joe Root said will be completed by April 2014. Among the units offered were Shay Zak’s custom hales, which are a modern interpretation of primitive huts, and Warren Sunnland’s luxurious two and three-bedroom residences called Hale Mai’a Town Homes. These estates feature exquisitely designed interiors, and beautiful private yards with dramatic landscaping, all of which are inspired by Hawaii’s culture and easygoing vibe.
Envisioned to be a sanctuary, Kohanaiki is a car-free community committed to cultural and ecological conservation. Today, the prime neighborhood is home to a biodynamic organic community farm, which offers tasty and healthy food – including fresh fish caught on the day it is served – for residents. Kohanaiki also has a reverse osmosis plant for water filtration, over 200 anchialine ponds for raising fish and shrimp, a 12-million gallon lake for the irrigation of the golf course and the community landscaping.
In Kohanaiki, residents spend spare time at a beach club facility, as well as a splendid golf course with six ocean-side holes designed by Rees Jones. In addition, a 38-acre community park features showers, restrooms, campsites and beach access. Thorough analysis and consideration was deeply invested in every aspect of this community. Some of the benefits to homeowners are preservation of archaeological and cultural sites used by the island’s original Hawaiian people, natural resource management plan in partnership with Audubon International, the only golf course on the Big Island to receive Audubon’s Silver Signature Course certification, biodynamic organic community farm, nine water wells, a reverse osmosis water filtration plant and a twelve million gallon lake.
