Be sure you don’t get the terms ‘beachfront’ and ‘oceanfront’ confused, as they are not one and the same. True beachfront property isn’t all that common on the Big Island, as the beaches continue to evolve and property that is at actual sea level and located on a beach is rare considering the lavascapes and elevated cliffs that punctuate the landscape. Oceanfront property is a different matter, and while you can still find many breathtaking oceanfront parcels, they’re becoming fewer and far between, particularly for those looking for land on which to build a luxury home.
Beachfront or Oceanfront Living?
For the most part, oceanfront properties are not located directly on the beach where owners step out onto the white pristine sand just yards from water’s edge, but instead are hidden away in a more remote location. These properties are perfect if you’re looking for something a bit more adventurous or romantic. Those properties that are located on the beach are for the most part luxury resorts that have been there for decades.
Most who are looking for a luxury property to live in or for investment purposes find that the numerous oceanfront residential resorts along the Kona-Kohala Coast are more to their liking. These communities not only offer countless amenities and a comfortable, relaxed lifestyle but security as well. It’s important to understand that most have association rules, so you’ll want to know exactly what those rules are if you intend to invest in a home or property for the purpose of renting to tourists, etc.
Kohala Coast resort properties include those in Kohanaiki
, the Mauna Kea Resort
and Mauna Lani Resort
, and the Hualalai Resort
to name a few. Interested in oceanfront living on Hawaii Island, and the blissful living experience you can enjoy? Contact the Big Island luxury real estate professionals at Mauna Kea Realty today!
