Hokuala, A Timbers Resort
Here’s a real ownership perk: Buyers at Hokuala are members of the Timbers Collection, which means reciprocity across its portfolio of properties, from Tuscany in Italy to Snowmass, Colorado. The first phase of this 450-acre community, just minutes from Lihue Airport, broke ground in January, and it will eventually include a very cool way to get around: water taxis on the resort’s own inland waterway. Also planned for 2017 and beyond: a boutique hotel with a destination spa, a yoga and wellness center, a kids club, a retail shopping village and multiple restaurants. A Jack Nicklaus Signature Course is already open, boasting oceanfront views.
Two-, three- and four-bedroom townhome and condominium residences are for sale with direct access to the shoreline. Whole ownership goes for $2 million up to $6 million, while fractionals start in the mid-$300,000 range and go up to $800,000. Occupancy is slated for mid- 2017. hokualakauai.com Try before you buy: Prospective buyers can stay in a complimentary guest suite.
