Naupaka Place, located within the Waikoloa Resort in South Kohala, is a gated oceanfront resort community of just eleven residences and expansive lots nestled at the Northern edge of the Anaeho’omalu Bay. Considered to be one of Waikoloa Beach Resort’s finest oceanfront communities, ocean and mountain views abound – from Hualalai to Mauna Loa and Muna Kea. An exquisite gated entry leads to an exclusive grouping of parcels surrounded by lava rock walls, lushly landscaped common grounds and meticulously maintained private drives. Potential buyers will appreciate these large lots in excess of 40,000 square feet, and for the lucky few, several home sites feature pristine natural and anchialine ponds. Set well back from the road, within the Waikoloa Beach Resort yet very much apart from it, gates ensure your privacy. Behind the gates, a conservation area and rare anchialine ponds buffer these eleven home sites. Perhaps one of the best features of the community, despite its amazing oceanfront address, is the ability to walk to virtually everything.
From the beach to restaurants, fine shopping, tennis or spa facilities, they are all just minutes from your front door. The beach access at Naupaka Place is also unique. While most of the oceanfront on the west-facing Kohala Coast and the north-facing shores from Hawi out to the area of Pololu offers high cliffs and dramatic views, beach access can be quite rocky and is not necessarily easy. However, many of the lots at Naupaka Place offer a gentle white sand beach with easy access to the water through lush vegetation. This ease of access is perhaps one of the distinguishing features of Naupaka Place. Here you can easily enjoy year-round sunsets and whale watching in season, just steps from your front door.
If you are considering purchasing a lot within Naupaka Place, the community covenants and restrictions have design standards based upon the work of creative architects working in Hawaii in the early part of the 20th century, such as C.W. Dickey, Hart Wood and Bertram Goodhue. Each lot may have a main house of no more than two-stories and a guesthouse, but must complete a design review process for final approval. These regulations are put in place to protect the exceptional natural landscape of the community and to ensure the best interests of all homeowners.
We can assist you in learning more about the community’s covenants and restrictions. With just eleven lots and home sites available, properties within Naupaka Place do not come on the market very often.
