I will trade my incredible 7.74 acre 900' elevation lot on the Big Island of Hawaii. It is on the West side of the island with a giant ocean view and a walking trail to the beach in a gated subdivision called Kona Sea Ranch. I would want a residential property of equal value in Maine along the Coast. My Fee Simple acreage is valued at $258,000 and is located in Captain Cook in beautiful South Kona with easy access to its international airport. It has electricity available on site and fronts on a paved private road that intersects with the main Mamalahoa highway serving the vibrant City of Kona and encircling the entire island. It is a few minutes from a local elementary school with free full time pre-school and endless beaches including one, Ho'okena, where you can scuba, snorkel, or swim with dolphins and whales.
This is a magnificent place with no bugs, no snakes, great climate with low humidity, and beauty wherever you look. Kona has a gigantic new Costco, Walmart, Home Depot and wonderful commercial, cultural, and educational facilities. I love my Hawaiian acreage and would love to build on it and retire, but I am 76, and Hawaii is too far from family members on the East Coast, which makes it necessary for me to give it up. My lot has electricity, and I have provided a map for reference purposes. I have a special love for Maine and want to return to my native state. This lot has wonderful rental, commercial, and agricultural potential. Hawaii has recently offered licenses to people with 2 acres and more to commercially grow hemp, for its valuable oil and fiber. The land is ideally situated for famous Kona coffee production and the growth of certain tropical fruits, and especially macadamia nuts.
