Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce another successful Hawaii sale with the no reserve auction of Hiwa Lani at Kuki'o – the firm's seventh consecutive, successful auction in the community. This stunning island estate is located within the exclusive Kuki'o Golf and Beach Club, a private oceanfront club and residential community developed by Discovery Land Company. Situated in the community's core, mere steps from the Tom Fazio-designed 10-hole golf course, the Kuki'o Beach Club and secluded Uluweuweu Bay, Hiwa Lani sold to the highest bidder at a live auction today, in cooperation with Jim Schneider (PB) of Kuki'o Properties.
"When our client decided to accelerate the timing of sale, I suggested the auction process through Concierge Auctions verses the uncertainty of whether or not a price reduction would spark sufficient interest and generate a timely sale," stated Schneider. "We are pleased with the results and the global response that was generated. It was a wonderful experience working with the whole Concierge team and we look forward to the next opportunity to do so."
Concierge Auctions' global marketing campaign generated over 11,800 website visits from 73 U.S. regions (led by California and Texas) and 28 international countries (led by Canada). A total of 649 prospects were identified and 5 bidders participated in the sale.
Hiwa Lani includes 7,520 square feet of light and airy living space with four bedrooms, four full and three half bathrooms. Embodying an elegant tropical lifestyle, Hiwa Lani's expansive interiors blend seamlessly with the outdoors and feature amenities not typically found in Kuki'o, including a custom-built steam room with cool plunge bath and a spacious backyard with infinity edge pool, hot tub, sunken bar and fire pit. The commercial grade kitchen is a gourmet chef's dream with a two-tier island and breakfast bar, and wine aficionados will appreciate the custom-designed 500-bottle wine display. The expansive media room includes five TVs within one large screen and a media library with more than 700 titles.
Kona, which means "leeward" in Hawaiian for its location along the sunny west coast of Hawaii's Big Island, enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year. Warm all year round, Kona is famous for sport fishing, snorkeling, gorgeous sunsets and its inimitable Kona coffee.
It is the center of commerce and of the tourist industry in West Hawaii and is served by the Kona International Airport.
Kuki'o is the Big Island's only private equity golf and beach club community and offers many of the finest resort homes for sale in Hawaii. The Club includes a full-service Member's Clubhouse, extensive spa and fitness facilities, a dining pavilion, beach bar, signature Outdoor Pursuits Ocean Sports program, a 10-hole short golf course and also an 18-hole championship course.
"The sale of Hiwa Lani – Concierge Auctions' 28th successful luxury property auction in Hawaii and seventh sale specifically in the Kuki'o community – is a testament to the fact that the auction process is becoming one of the most effective ways to connect affluent buyers and sellers of luxury real estate," stated Chad Roffers, Head of Client Services at Concierge Auctions. "Continuing the momentum from today's sale, we are enthusiastically looking ahead to next Tuesday's auction of the magnificent estate, Le Grande Vues at Red Mountain in Aspen, Colorado."
