Sale ($300,000) or even trade of my incredible 7.47 acre 900' elevation lot on the Big Island of Hawaii. It is on the West side of the island with a giant ocean view in a gated community called Kona Sea Ranch. I would want an undeveloped property of equal value in the greater Santa Barbara community. The property would have to have water and electricity in a nice neighborhood. My Fee Simple acreage is located in Captain Cook in beautiful South Kona with easy access to its international airport. It has electricity available and fronts on a paved private road that intersects with the main Mamalahoa highway that serves the vibrant City of Kona and encircles the entire island. It is a few minutes from a local elementary school with free full time pre-school and endless beaches including one, Ho'okena, where you can scuba, snorkel, or swim with dolphins and whales.
This is a magnificent place with no bugs, no snakes, great climate with low humidity, and beauty wherever you look. Kona is famous for its coffee, tropical fruits, and macadamia nuts and has a gigantic new Costco, a Walmart and wonderful commercial and cultural facilities.
I am 76 years old, and my kids and grand kids all live on the West Coast. I love my Hawaiian acreage and would love to build on it and retire, but family considerations and age make it necessary for me to give it up, and I do have a special connection to and love for the greater Santa Barbara area.
This lot has great rental, commercial, and agricultural potential. Hawaii has recently offered licenses to people with 2 acres and more to commercially grow hemp, for its oil and fiber. And the land is ideally situated for coffee production and the growth of certain tropical fruits, and especially macadamia nuts.
