Set high alongside the championship Hapuna Golf Course and offering dramatic Kohala Coast views, and Hapuna Realty have introduced a new limited release of homesites at Mauna Kea Resort.

Along with the one-of-a-kind Hapuna Beach Villa and 60 Hapuna Beach Residences, the homesites present a rare opportunity to own one of Hawaii’s most spectacular properties, just steps from two of Hawaii’s most celebrated beaches.

The first release of Hapuna Estates includes 11 of the largest homesites. The sites, ranging from half-acre to over 1-acre lots, sit privately along the 7th and 8th fairways of the Arnold Palmer-designed championship golf course.

The higher elevation of the homesites affords cool breezes along with the reward of panoramic 360° vistas. Prices start at $795,000.

“The most favored sites at Mauna Kea Resort will soon become the mauka properties — those on the mountain with the highest elevations with sweeping ocean views in a milder climate,” says Tomo Matsumoto, owner of Hapuna Realty, the dedicated brokerage representing the property portfolio of “In their short time on the market we’ve seen incredible interest in the Hapuna Estates, with three already reserved.”

Future releases include a collection of individual estate homesites and 17- and 10-acre site parcels, all enjoying golf-front locations. Also coming soon are Hapuna Beach Residences and Hapuna Beach Villa. Limited to just 60 owners, the residences will feature unobstructed views from each of the four distinctive floor plans. The Villa will be a spectacular 4-bedroom, 10,600-square-foot oceanfront estate. Both offerings sit directly on Hapuna Beach, widely considered to be one of the best in Hawaii.

The Residences are currently taking reservations and public sales will commence later in 2017. The Villa is expected to come to market in late 2017.

“The wide-range of living options offered through are among the most special in all of Hawaii. The singular beachfront location is unparalleled and unlikely to be duplicated for years to come,” Matsumoto said. “It’s a place that’s perfectly envisioned for creating a legacy home that will remain beloved through generations.”

The new real estate offerings are part of an expansive refresh of the iconic resort, first envisioned by venture capitalist Laurance S. Rockefeller in the ’60s. Now more than 50 years later, the Mauna Kea Resort is being reimagined for the next generation, while keeping in spirit with its storied legacy.

At the centerpiece of the excitement is the new Westin Hapuna Beach Resort, a dramatic $46 million renovation debuting in early 2018. Owners can easily access the hotel’s amenities, as well as those at the neighboring Mauna Kea — the original hotel where Rockefeller’s dream of timeless island luxury was born.
