UPDATE: Honolulu Magazine’s “The Top 25 Most Expensive Homes in Hawaii” is now available online.
“More than half of the top 25 homes in Hawaii are located on the Kona Coast, and they’re all in private resort communities–Kukio, Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani and Hualalai.”
This month’s Honolulu Magazine features some of the most exclusive luxury homes in Hawaii. And many of them are on the Big Island’s Kona and Kohala coasts.
Senior Writer Mike Keany says that when he started doing research for the article he was somewhat surprised at how prominently Big Island real estate factored into the list. “As Honolulu residents, we tend to be a little Oahu-centric,” he said, “but 9 out of the top 10 homes are along the Kona coast.”
Keany says that he and a photographer from Honolulu Magazine rented a helicopter to get the photos that are featured in the article. “Flying along the Kona-Kohala coast was a memorable experience. There is such contrast between the stark lava and the lush resort properties.”
The print edition of the September issue of Honolulu Magazine is available now. When the article is available online, we’ll let you know.
