Hawaii, the Big Island: Real Estate





64-5274 Nuuanu St.

3 beds, 2 baths

1,371 sq. ft.


Real locals live upland in Waimea, which has that sort of relaxed-cool vibe that tempts you to put down roots. As this place shows, Hawaii, the Big Island is more affordable than you think.







#13, Villas at

Mauna Kea

3 beds, 2 baths

2,684 sq. ft.


The retrofitted Mauna Kea Beach Hotel looks as fresh today as it did when Laurance Rockefeller built it in the 1960s. The resort faces the island’s best beach…and then there’s that insane brunch (see EAT, next page). All of which makes this pricey condo very tempting.







72-210 Kahikole St.

4 beds, 4.5 baths

3,099 sq. ft.


Hualalai and Kukio are the most exclusive and expensive communities on any of the islands. The price of privacy?
High seven figures for a house; about half that for a condo like this.
