About

Ali Blackmore RB e-Pro lives in Hawaii on the Big Island where she works as a Designer and Realtor Broker. Originally from Zimbabwe, Ali has lived all over the world following a curiosity for exploration and learning. Over a thirty year travel experience working in Real Estate, Design and the Arts, Ali has found that people across cultures all have the same wants and needs. A home is one of those basic needs and, dependant on culture, the translation of home is the same with varying facets that make finding and creating 'home' for people a career choice Ali revels in.

On the other hand....

But wait...
Rather stock your local food bank forever and still get your Big Island Hawaii oceanfront home? Don't drop $25m on the home featured on the prior post. Get this one. It's a current listing and it IS oceanfront. It's only $700k. I'd love to show it to you. Go on. You don't need those 10 extra rooms. This Kehena home is a 2/1 with 1000+sf under roof on 8752sf lot. It's a great spot for a vacation retreat.

If you've got it ....

A little weekend shopping anyone? Wanna splurge? This is the highest priced residential listing on Hawaii, Big Island MLS right now. Kukio. 6 bed / 7 bath + 3 half bath, 10 other rooms inc. offices, gyms, massage therapy room, etc. 13,496sf under roof on 1.33ac. Ocean view. Not oceanfront. It's sits back quite a way and looks over lava formations to ocean beyond. $25m

Pele stretches under her skirt!

This is an amazing photo I found on the web credited to CK Horne. I love how it shows the new land formation under the water. It also shows why we have had so much 'vog' recently. Normally we don't have 'vog' (volcanic fog) in Kohala, but, in winter our wind patterns shift and when our regular Trades drop and the wind shifts to come out of the south we get 'vog' carried up to the north of the island. Actually the entire Hawaiian island chain experiences this vog coverage under these conditions.

Putting it in Perspective

Putting it in perspective. I like this aerial taken from north of the tip of Big Island looking back south onto Kohala. It shows clearly the topography of the area and why there is no connection of the road between Pololu Valley in Kohala and Waipio Valley in Hamakaua. All the deep valleys and soaring cliffs in between are clear. You can hike from one to the other in both directions but that's for serious and experienced hikers only.

Ancheline Ponds of South Kohala

On the South Kohala Coast at the Waikoloa Beach Resort, among other attractions, is a nature preserve. The ancheline ponds at Anaehoomalu Bay in front of Kolea are preserved for generations to enjoy this natural beauty. At times the colors in these waters can be electric; from day-glow green and orange, to pulsing yellows. Here they are serene with the sunset across the ocean beyond. There is a trail through the ponds to the beach. A walk through here is always an opportunity to stop, breathe, and reflect in these faerie reflecting pools. What might you 'see'?
