Seller will consider seller financing or a lease with purchase option at acceptable terms.

The Shirakawa Hotel was built in 1926 and has every bit of Old Hawaii Charm built into it. In operation for many years - it could use some remodeling but the structure is functional and intact. It has 8 hotel rooms, a kitchen, dining room, living room and separate living areas and bathrooms for staff/caretakers.

The full sized custom built home is big enough that it could be a bed and breakfast - there are plenty of extra bedrooms and baths for guests and full time living.

The motel and adjoining buildings can also be used for corporate retreats, or possibly a care facility. Prior tenants were paying $15,000 a month to use the space as a retreat center for youth.

The Ice House and Fishing Supply Store was in business for many years. Now with some TLC this highway frontage, commercially zoned area has parking, retail space and just needs someone to take the reigns and turn it into a profit center.

There are multiple parcels as part of the sale. Over 7 acres are being prepped for coffee. Growing conditions are ideal as is the soil.

With over 10 acres, a hotel, a motel, a home, multiple storage buildings, commercial zoning and approximately 7 acres being prepared and planted with Kau Coffee - you can have it all.

When the first Hawaiians migrated north, South Point at the foot of Mauna Loa is likely the first land they saw from their double-hulled voyaging canoes. The Ka'u coastline is truly a majestic sight.

The Ka'u district, which is the southernmost area of the Big Island and the southernmost tip of the U.S, is still a real estate frontier. This is largest district in the State, but the least populated. At its northern boundary lies Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, undeniably volcano goddess Pele’s domain. Dominating the landscape along the coast are black sand beaches and mile after mile of stark lava landscape where forests of ohi'a and a variety of small farms and orchards are flourishing.

Home to several large rural subdivisions created by real estate developers in the mid-1900s as well as historic and culturally significant small villages, Ka'u embraces a very diverse population, many of whom are committed to "keeping country country." Recent proposed resort developments have met with strong community resistance, giving rise to active community groups dedicated to preserving the legacy of ancestral places and the old Hawaiian ways.

Located deep in the hills of Ka'u is Wood Valley, where in 1980 His Holiness the Dalai Lama consecrated and dedicated the Nechung Dorje Drayang Ling Immutable Island of Melodious Sound as a Buddhist temple and retreat. Farther south, along the highway, are the small villages of Pahala and Naalehu. Farther still are the subdivisions of Hawaiian Ocean View Estates, Hawaiian Ocean View Ranchos, Green Sand, Mark Twain and Discovery Harbor.

There are unique real estate opportunities in Ka'u for those who prefer life outside the mainstream. A variety of custom homes, off-grid homes, farms, ranch properties and ocean view lots are available in the Clark Realty Big Island listings.
