Finding the Perfect Place
to Fulfill Your Dreams in West Hawaii
With some of the most remarkable and constantly good weather in the world, the Kona-Kohala Coast can be a pleasant place to live indeed. The abundant sunshine, moderate humidity and pleasant tropical breezes are among the island’s finest amenities. But many people don’t realize they have a choice of multiple nuances of climate and this adds to the equation when selecting a location in which to live.
A complex variety of micro-climatic conditions exists along the leeward coast and up the mountain slopes, where the average temperature cools about three degrees for every 1,000 feet of elevation. Combine that with the moderate and varying rainfall along the coast and up the slopes from North Kohala to South Kona, and you can pick a perfect location; from hot, semi-arid to the cool, lush jungle.
Also varying along the coastline are housing costs, as well as buying opportunities. The current price range (9/04) begins with a modest, starter home listed at $285,000 with three bedrooms, two baths, 1,200 square feet of living space on a 19,600 square-foot lot in Waimea and tops out with a $23.8 million dollar, luxury, ocean front estate situated at prestigious Hualalai Resort. The fact is that along the coast you can live in a coffee shack (former coffee plantation cabin), custom home, condominium, or grand oceanfront estate. The range of choice offers an opportunity for everyone.
