Timbers Company, developer and operator of properties in over 15 diverse high-end destinations, has announced the addition of Pākela ‘Ike at Hōkūala, a private cul-de-sac community comprised of 24 half-acre homesites on Kaua’i.
Situated within the 450-acre Hōkūala resort community, the new development is just steps from world-class golf, amenities, dining, trails, and beaches. Framed by spectacular mountain or ocean views, these graciously sized homesites range from $695,000 to $1.1 million. A number of homesites are already reserved with the first homes anticipated to be completed by early 2024.
“Pākela ‘Ike at Hōkūala offers buyers with an opportunity to build their own utopia within a unique neighborhood that offers both luxury and privacy, yet immersed in the epicenter of the Kaua’i community and at an arm’s reach of the Pacific Ocean,” stated Debbie Edgerton, Senior Sales Executive at Hōkūala Real Estate. “These rare, half-acre homesites are located at the true heart of the expansive Hōkūala enclave, featuring convenient access to not only a bevy of luxury amenities but also the unbridled beauty of its terrain, ranging from wetlands and tropical rainforest to a rugged coastline and winding lagoons.”
Envisioned for buyers looking to plant roots in Kaua’i in harmony with the land and local community, Pākela ʻIke was named to evoke two complementary concepts in the Hawaiian language—Pākela, meaning “surpassing excellence,” and ‘Ike, meaning “visionary or knowledge.” The residential haven was inspired by the Hawaiian culture’s reverence for meaningful connection and perfectly situated for residents looking to begin their own family legacy on Kaua’i.
“The addition of Pākela ʻIke within Hōkūala’s 450-acre coastal community invites our buyers to forge a deeper, more meaningful connection to the spirit of the island as they build their dream home,” stated Chris Burden, Chief Development Officer at Timbers Resorts. “These homesites are surrounded by Kauaʻi’s untamed natural beauty unlike anything else currently available on the market, not only in Hawaii but across the globe.”
Offering the most private residential resort setting in Kaua’i, Pākela ʻIke is nestled in a verdant emerald sanctuary surrounded by Kauai’s mystic mountain ranges once used by voyagers to navigate through the Pacific’s azure waters.
The low-density nature of Hōkūala coupled with the rare, generous sized homesites afford owners privacy and tranquility without sacrificing convenience with a host of amenities just mere minutes away. Hōkūala’s coveted location perched along Kauai’s southeastern shore offers owners the opportunity to fully immerse in the idyllic, sensory beauty of the Garden Island, from the gentle salt spray along the shoreline to the fragrant aromas of the rainbow eucalyptus forest and blossoming plumeria found throughout its fertile grounds.
Aligned with Hōkūala’s philosophy of integrating and blending into the Hawaiian lifestyle, the people, the structures and the developed environment, Pākela ʻIke offers an architectural style that delves deeper into the soul and spirit of Hawaii and harmonizes with the natural environment. Buyers are provided with thoughtful guidelines to ensure their future homes mirror historic Hawaiian design themes and motifs utilizing natural materials while harnessing the island’s climate to maximize cross ventilation, natural sunlight and vistas of the ocean, mountains, and adjacent Ocean Course golf course. To ensure a seamless process, the Pākela ʻIke homesites feature a Preferred Vendor Program, bringing together the expertise of renowned architects, designers, landscape architects and builders to help buyers effortlessly custom design their dream Hawaiian retreat. An on-site team has been created specifically to help navigate the permitting and construction process and are available every step of the way through planning, design, permitting and construction. Buyers will have the ability to create graciously sized two-story homes with a minimum of 2,000 interior square feet and are encouraged to both build traditional lanais to provide sheltered outdoor living spaces as well as utilize materials, textures, and artworks native to Kaua’i. Buyers can also incorporate plunge pools and indoor/outdoor showers to further underline the indoor/outdoor lifestyle afforded by this beloved subtropical climate. Those building within Pākela ʻIke community are also encouraged to create their own personal oasis incorporating a variety of canopy trees, lush palms and shrubs as well as traditional canoe plants first brought to the island by Pacific settlers.
HŌKŪALA – KAUA’I’S RISING STAR
Owners at Pākela ʻIke will have the benefit of living within Hōkūala, slated to be Kaua’i’s most comprehensive resort community. As a subdivision of Hōkūala, Pākela ʻIke’s residents will have access to a growing list of luxury amenities including priority tee times at the award-winning signature Jack Nicklaus course, The Ocean Course; agrication experiences at The Farm at Hōkūala, a 16.5-acre Organic farm and orchard; farm-to-fork cuisine at the award-winning Hualani’s restaurant; traditional Hawaiian spa services at Nanea Spa; and over 17 miles of trails weaving through a wildlife sanctuary home to five different endangered bird species. Additionally, Hōkūala will be welcoming tennis and pickleball courts currently under construction; a forthcoming four-star hotel complete with new dining venues; a luxury retail complex, several boat docks located along the property’s 30 acres of meandering lagoons for kayaking, paddleboarding, canoeing, etc. Both existing and forthcoming community elements are rooted in authenticity and sustainability to formulate a genuine Kaua’i experience for generations to come.
LOCAL REAL ESTATE MARKET
The island of Kaua’i is only 562.30 square miles in size and much of it is uninhabitable, or difficult to reach, limiting new residential construction opportunities. The launch of these 24 Pākela ‘Ike homesites and recent ground-breaking of Timbers’ 12 Lāola Nani townhomes in late 2021, slated for completion in Summer 2023, brings forth much needed inventory to meet market demand. The property continues to attract buyers seeking to work from paradise, connect with loved ones, or simply live the spirit of Aloha. Hōkūala Real Estate closed over $39 million in new and resale residences in 2022.
