Homes in Keauhou View Estates have been thoughtfully designed for a relatively low-maintenance, carefree lifestyle. Many are single-level with no upstairs/downstairs climbs required. Most have easy-to-care-for yards and landscaping.

Having owned two homes in Keauhou View Estates, I know from personal experience the joys of living just a quick hop from the shoreline and beach. My wife Lauralynn and I purchased our first home in the neighborhood back in 2001 when there was nothing but dirt and the promise of a community. Sure enough, the risk was worth it. We did our research then followed our instinct, plopping our deposit down and moving in a year later. As you can imagine, the landscape was barren back then, but eventually we and our neighbors installed and nurtured our landscaping as the personality of the area began to take shape.

We enjoy our memories of those “growing up” years for our community. It was exciting to watch things progress as we took walks with our Golden Retriever, Mana, heading to the shoreline to watch a sunset after an evening swim. The wide streets, sidewalks and the inviting layout of the subdivision offer a great opportunity meeting neighbors as you get exercise on your way around “the Loop” with your family or pet. (We loved the neighborhood so much we actually sold our first home then purchased another in Keauhou View Estates right after.)
