MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty is representing three Big Island properties that have strong and fascinating ties to the history of the island. These three listings are very different but have expansive potential for the right buyer.
KILAUEA LODGE & RESTAURANT: Since 1938 Kilauea Lodge and Restaurant has been a Big Island landmark as a YMCA youth camp, a Radio Training School during World War II, and more recently, as an award-winning dining experience and rustic lodge. Kilauea Lodge is conveniently located across from Hawaii’s #1 tourist attraction, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and is a favorite home base for those visiting the wonders of Kilauea, our Island’s most active volcano.

KAHUKU RANCH: Waiahukini Bay, directly below Kahuku Ranch, is believed to be a likely landing spot of the first Polynesian explorers to reach the Big Island. King Kamehameha the Great spent a portion of his youth here and later won the right of succession to the Chief Kalaniopuu who died at Waiahukini in 1782. Travelers such as Cook, Menzies, Ellis, Lyman, and Mark Twain are just a few of the early Western explorers who passed through this area. Kahuku Ranch now consists of 645.53 acres with a main home and 7 additional plantation style dwellings, plus an office and ancillary farm structures. Click here for the complete listing.
WAINAKU EXECUTIVE CENTER: With a commanding view of Hilo Bay, the Wainaku Executive Center is an integral part of Hilo’s sugar plantation history. This historic oceanfront property (c.1924) was formerly the headquarters of C. Brewer & Co., one of Hawaii’s “Big Five”. The Executive Center is 11.71 acres of prime Big Island real estate with a black sand beach below, wide ocean views affording daily sunrises, tightly manicured grounds and an approx. 12,000 sqft. stately mansion-like building. It’s not stretch of the imagination to say that this is Hilo’s most important, enduring, elegant and incomparable piece of real estate. Click here for the complete listing.
