Welcome to Kuwili Lani – Hawai’i Island’s First Planned Sustainable Living Community

On the beautiful Hamakua Coast of the Big Island, a new way of living awaits you —a place where sustainability, community and heritage come together. This is Kuwili Lani with expansive ocean, pastoral and sky vistas and just a few one acre-plus lots remaining. Kuwili Lani is a unique, first-of-its-kind Hawaii sustainable living community. It’s designed for green building practices, energy and water conservation, wise use of natural resources and planting a garden.

While creating a more sustainable lifestyle for yourself and your family might seem challenging, Kuwili Lani simplifies your path to sustainable living. No other similar community has the combination of convenience, structure and guidance for those who want to transition to this alternative and innovative means of being more independent and engaged with the land.

For the past two years, we have been searching for the ideal build site for our Hamakua Coast dream house. We saw many properties that had potential but nothing that took our breath away until we visited Kuwili Lani. The spectacular ocean views, large lot sizes, and welcoming community made buying in Kawili Lani a very easy decision!

“We were looking for a different lifestyle, simpler and more self-sufficient. Each potential property we considered had one or more of the criteria we were looking for, but none checked every box. Kuwili Lani matched our ideal lifestyle, says Don. And the detailed planning that made this a build-ready community was obvious. But after visiting Kuwili Lani, we stopped looking as we knew this was the place for us.“

– Don Brawner and Carissa Treat, Kansas City, MO.
