Hawaiian real estate expert and Big Island resident, Harold Clarke invites you to discover a world of distinct pleasures and privilege only available to the lucky residents of the unparalleled Mauna Kea community. Considered Hawaii’s premier resort destination, featuring world-class golf and a breathtaking setting for the many outdoor activities available, Laurance Rockefeller’s Mauna Kea Resort presents some of the finest opportunities for luxury real estate on the Big Island. Considered some of the most desirable properties on the Island, Mauna Kea offers several distinct choices when it comes to housing styles.
The residents of Mauna Kea Resort also enjoy access to two exceptional golf courses: With unique crushed lava rock along the fairways and greens, when the Mauna Kea Golf Course opened in December 1964, it was quickly recognized as the grand dame of all Hawaii golf courses – a title it is unlikely to surrender anytime soon. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., Mauna Kea Golf Course is a legendary masterpiece located on 230-acres and offers sweeping panoramic views of both sea and land. The second course at Mauna Kea Resort is an 18-hole championship course located approximately 700-feet above sea level.
In addition to world-class golf, Mauna Kea residents also have access to two of the finest white sand beaches in all of Hawaii, an oceanfront tennis complex, and the elegant amenities of two luxurious beach hotels: Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel was built at the site ancient Hawaiians called “Hapuna” or “the spring that gives forth life,” where natural artesian springs were once a source of renewal to weary travelers. Today, the resort is dedicated to preserving this history and you’ll find an extraordinary collection of over 1,600 art works of Asian and Oceanic cultures.
When you’re ready to explore the many options available to you within the Mauna Kea Resort, you’ll be happy to find several distinct neighborhoods offering a plethora of real estate choices. Let’s take a look at some of the Mauna Kea Real Estate options:
The Villas at Mauna Kea: The Villas, designed by the renowned architectural firm of Wells & Klages, are comprised of 40 condominium residences, each situated to take full advantage of the terrain and views of mountain and ocean that surround the area. As Hawaii’s most exclusive condominium development, these properties are highly coveted.
The Bluffs at Mauna Kea: Centrally located within the resort, these homes for sale in Mauna Kea were an original part of the master plan for Mauna Kea. You will find approximately 20 single-family homes within this 44-acre community, many of which overlook the ocean between Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. The home sites here are close enough to hear the sound of the surf.
Kumulani at The Uplands: Overlooking world-class golf courses, two luxury hotels and the unsurpassed beauty of Hapuna Beach and Kauna’oa Bay, The Uplands is one of the final developments within the resort. Many consider this community to be one of the last great opportunities in Hawaii residential real estate.
