Located on the 'Big Island' of Hawaii, on the western coast just south of Kailua-Kona, Houualoa, Hawaii is a classic historic town with a distinct landscape. In addition to offering beautiful beaches, bright flowers and intriguing foliage, the town is located on a mountain and parts have a 1,300-foot elevation. Residents looking for a condo or house to purchase can take a 15-minute drive up Mt. Hualalai, where they will find coffee groves lining the slopes of the mountainside.
Holualoa is a rich cultural town, and many artists flock here for its welcoming atmosphere. There are a great number of wonderful art galleries here, where those seeking an home or condo can walk in and speak directly with the local artists. The local artisans offer art courses and classes throughout the year, wanting to help spread their imagination and creativity. Holualoa Kona Coffee Company is found in Holualoa, and tours of the coffee plantations are offered. But no Starbucks will be found here -- it's all local coffee joints, where you can find distinct local flavors and brews.
