Types of Homes in Kailua Kona
Stylistically, the homes in Kailua Kona range quite a bit, for you’ll find both quaint bungalows and sprawling luxury estates. Styles, as well, have changed over the years, as different trends came in and out of fashion. Some of the most sought-after homes for sale in Kailua Kona are decidedly ultra-contemporary, usually incorporating large windows and high-tech features, but borrow elements from the Hawaiian plantation architectural style: notably wide-hipped roofs, exposed beams, and dramatic porticos.
Regardless of the design, outdoor spaces are a must, and they’re often protected by the roof of the home itself, if not by separate structures. You’ll also find homes that are influenced by more historic Hawaiian architecture—namely the steep roofs that blend in with the natural surroundings—although styles are often a mixture of many different ones all at once, reflecting the wide range that have been popular throughout the island’s history.
Subdivisions in Kailua Kona
Subdivisions in Kailua Kona, such as Pualani Estates at Kona, offer residents ideal views, neighborhood parks and green spaces, and convenient locations, all whilst providing the safety and security of a well-maintained community. New developments and building projects have also begun to be constructed with sustainability in mind, using alternative energy sources, green materials, and maintaining the natural environment surrounding the property.
There is also the benefit of a convenient location. Subdivisions like Lōkahi Makai and Wainani Estates, both located in Kailua-Kona, are close to shopping, dining, beaches, and of course, Kona Airport. Each, as well, has a homeowners association by which residents are governed, and dictate rules and regulations about parking, boat storage, construction, and more.
