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!

“I see Kuwili Lani as an example for other developers in the State…For me it is finding ways in which I can encourage more of these forward-looking developments…supporting renewable energy initiatives and projects like Kuwili Lani.”

“If you are looking for a peaceful, planned utopia for sustainable living, where community and connection with nature is at the top of your list when searching for a new home, then Kuwili Lani is the place to be. The neighborhood has large 1+ acre lots that are zoned for agricultural use and amazing 180 degree views. Laupahoehoe, where the neighborhood is located, is not far from Hilo, so you’re not too far from nightlife, dining, medical care, shopping and an airport. Michael, one of the developers, is amiable, eager to share his vision for Kuwili Lani and very helpful with information on the steps to building a home in Hawaii.”

“After being fortunate enough to vacation on Hawaii Island for three weeks in 2013, my wife and I knew that we wanted to live there. We were looking for a different lifestyle, simpler and more self sufficient. My wife started looking through real estate listings for months on a daily basis. Each potential property had one or more of the criteria we were looking for, but none of them checked every box for us. That is until she found Kuwili Lani. We contacted Michael with Big Island Sustainable Homes and learned about the vision behind Kuwili Lani, which matched our ideal lifestyle. Michael immediately made us feel like we were already part of the "Agrihood”.

The level of detailed planning and substantial investment that was made in making this a "build-ready" community was obvious, something we had not found in any other property we looked at. Oh, and did I mention the spectacular views? They’re awesome! After visiting Kuwili Lani we stopped looking for any other property as we knew this was the place for us. We are very proud and excited to be the first owners / residents of Kuwili Lani.

If living a self-sustainable lifestyle and improving your life quality is a vision you share, then come join us.”

“I have been following the Kuwili Lani project since 2018 and considering buying a lot to build our dream home. My wife and I like the concept of living in a community of people that have the same outlook on sustainability and taking care of each other, and working with Michael has been fun, informative and spiritual at the same time. We were able to get a better understanding on how live to live off the grid without compromising the amenities and quality of living we are accustomed to and look forward to making it our home. Kuwili Lani is an amazing project on Hawaii Island’s Hamakua coast and has incredible views that you would usually pay double or three times for on the Kona side of the island. We highly recommend that anyone who is looking to buy land and build a home with a sustainable living approach take a look at this project.”

As a landscape architect, I am blessed to have had the opportunity to work on numerous, high visibility and notable projects across the US in my career and consider this one of the most intriguing and fulfilling. It…provides a wonderful opportunity to live a healthy, sustainable, lifestyle that can diminish the noise of hectic career paths and daily lives and bring you back to the basics of calm, purposeful living in an idyllic setting. The property is beautiful, the community vision and purpose are clear. Take a closer look and see how this opportunity can change your life!
