Why Buy This Property

OPPORTUNITIES FOR ASTUTE BUYERS: If you are seeking a large land opportunity with a diversity of options this is it. Twenty acres is zone either MG1-A which is scarce on Hawai`i. Twenty-eight acres is zone agricultural A-40A or RS-15.

LOCATION: The property is located in the historic plantation community of Honoka’a along the Hamakua Coast along the north east shore of the Island of Hawaii. The area is rural in nature but represents one of the primary communities along the Hamakua Coast between Hilo and Waimea. The property is located 1,000 feet from the Pacific Ocean, 54 miles from Kailua-Kona and 43 miles from Hilo.

CONVENIENT ACCESS: Public road access to the property is via Haina Camp Road. Additional access is provided over Kia Manu Road (Haina section), Kia Manu Road (Standard Oil Road section), or Nanaina Kai Road (Pa`ahuhau Road), all of which are easements over private property.

HISTORIC HAINA MILL: The Historic Haina Sugar Mill was located on this site and operated from 1868 until the final harvest in 1994, after which the sugar mill closed permanently.

INTERNATIONAL AIR TRANSPORTATION: Travel to Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport (KOA) in Kona to the west or Hilo International Airport (ITO) in Hilo to the east. Most visitors arrive in Kona. There is also the option of flying into Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu first and then taking a short, 35-40 minute flight to the island of Hawaii. Getting to the island of Hawaii is easier than ever with daily direct flights into Kona International Airport. Major air carriers from the U.S. and Canada fly directly into Kona. Most of the direct flights are from the U.S. West Coast — Los Angeles, San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, Portland, Seattle, and Anchorage — plus Denver and Phoenix, and seasonally from Vancouver. Some seasonal carriers also make the trip with charters and there is also a direct flight from Los Angeles into Hilo. Because the island is so big, consider arriving on one side of the island and departing from the other. For example, you might fly into Kona, exploring that side of the island awhile, then driving to the Hilo side (roughly 2 hrs, 30 min) and exploring for a while longer before flying out from the Hilo Airport, or vice-versa. (Be sure to ask car rental companies about drop off charges).

COMMUNITY SERVICES: Community services include police and fire protection, Hale Ho’ala and Honoka’a Hospital are located to the north. Schools include Honoka’a Elementary and Honoka’a High & Intermediate School. Public facilities include the Honoka’a Rodeo Arena, Honoka’a Country Club, and Golf Course, Honoka’a Swimming Pool, and Haina Park.


The property is offered in 5 Tracts.  Bidders may bid for a single tract or any combination of tracts or the entirety.
