Oceanfront Options – The Windward Coast
Oahu’s Windward Coast is 34 scenic miles extending from Kahuku Point in the north to Makapuu Point in the south.
The Windward Oahu region itself is unrivaled in its natural beauty and dramatic contrasts – from its pristine white-sand beaches washed by turquoise waters to the verdant vertical cliffs of the Koolau Mountain Range.
In 1972, Kuilima, now Turtle Bay, opened on coastal lands where the North Shore morphs into the Windward Coast. Mauka lands in the area have generally remained undeveloped, with the exception of ongoing projects of the Mormon Church.
The coast’s most prominent geographic feature, Mokapu Peninsula, site of one of Hawaii’s largest military installations, forms the southern boundary of Kaneohe Bay. Marine and oceanographic research facilities are located here, as well as at Makapuu to the south.
Residential properties along this coast range from country cottages to large estates, apartment buildings, townhomes, and condominiums. The area’s two largest communities, Kaneohe and Kailua, continue to grow, with real estate values surpassing price points for properties in some of southeast Oahu’s most upscale neighborhoods.
Just north of Kaneohe Bay, along the highway that hugs the Windward Coast, is a two-acre parcel of lush land listed by Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties Realtor Lisa Haeringer at $700,000.
The vacant property is located in Kahaluu, across the street from the top of Kaneohe Bay, near Senator Fong’s Plantation and Gardens.
The 87,120 square foot lot is zoned AG-2 which allows for the construction of a singlefamily “farm dwelling,” if used in conjunction with agricultural activities. Currently the property is fallow, without crops or livestock.
Haeringer said the parcel has a relatively fl at, wide open area making it optimal for many uses with lots of space to grow crops.
“The back side of the property along Pulama Road has several mature tall trees, providing shade and privacy,” she said.
“There is a natural spring that trickles from time to time along the side of the lot. A small culvert on the land runs under the road and out to the Bay. If there were some livestock they could drink from the spring.”
Haeringer added that the property has “a nice plateau on which to build your dream home.”
She noted that despite its country ambiance, the parcel is only a five-minute drive to Koolau Center and similarly close to the H-2 freeway.
To the north is the rural town of Waikane, Waiahole Beach Park, Kualoa Regional Park and the famous Kualoa Ranch, the 4,000-acre site of many Hollywood movies and outdoor activities such as ATV riding and zip lining.
Haeringer said a video on YouTube taken from an aerial drone shows exactly what the property looks like from above, as well as the surrounding area.
“Just enter 47-110 Pulama Road. I asked the videographer to film in all directions to give the buyer an eagle’s view of the panoramic beauty of this area.”
