Nestled in Keaukaha, a Big Island enclave steeped in authentic and complex Hawaiian history, this oceanfront property offers a rare opportunity within a culturally diverse community. Surrounded by three of the island's premier beach parks - Keaukaha, Onekahakaha, and Keokea - it boasts captivating views of Hilo town and the majestic Mauna Kea. With ownership spanning over 7 decades and 3 generations, the current owners seek individuals who will respectfully transform the land while preserving the essence of Old Hawaii. This presents a unique moment to create a landmark Hilo oceanfront estate or an exceptional hospitality business, both infused with authenticity and the natural aloha spirit.
