Kailua Kona, HI


Rutter/KW Kohanaiki LLC

Lot area:

450 acres


1.1 units/AC



A 450-acre site with two miles of ocean frontage along the scenic Kona Coast of Hawaii is being developed as a prestige private resort community with 500 one-acre and half-acre homesites positioned throughout a magnificent 18-hole golf course.

Along the seafront, the land planning treads lightly to preserve the coastal environment. Elsewhere in places, the largely flat existing topography is modified for the golf course, and to create two tiers for the clustered homesites, to optimize coastal and golf course views. Larger one-acre estates and half-acre sites are placed closer to the coast; denser clusters will be further inland. The clustered residential enclaves allow for large areas of the site to remain open for fairways and open space, while enhancing the appeal of each residential setting.

Designed by preeminent designer Rees Jones, the 7,200 yard championship golf course includes six spectacular holes running parallel to the ocean. A golf clubhouse provides ancillary amenities such as resident dining, tennis courts, and workout facilities. Separate Men’s and Women’s Locker Room structures provide optimum privacy for the golfing residents and guests.
