The Big Island of Hawai'i offers endless vistas and inspiration. Polynesian voyagers from the South Pacific were the first to reach the island of Hawai'i in their outrigger canoes. Now centuries later, you can share the same joy in finding a haven in tune with the rhythms of the land and sea. Spot sea turtles as you stroll along a black sand beach, ski down the snowcapped slopes of Mauna Kea, and hike under rainbows in a tropical rainforest.

KAUAI – THE GARDEN ISLE
Welcome to Kauai. The spirit of individuality is alive on Kauai, whose residents are at home on the most pristine of the Hawaiian islands. The world-renowned, emerald-green views of the Na Pali Coast and vivid hues of Waimea Canyon – "the Grand Canyon of the Pacific" – are exemplary of the Garden Isle's signature beauty. On Kauai you can spend your day snorkeling or surfing in the turquoise ocean, kayaking down breathtaking Wailua River, or hiking through the verdant green rainforest.
ARTS & CULTURE
Across this beautiful and vast planet there exists a handful of places that when mentioned in casual conversation, at least one or two people are bound to proclaim, "I've always wanted to live in (fill in the blank)". One of those places is Hawai'i.
The reasons why so many are particularly drawn to this special place are varied, but the island culture is recognized as warm and welcoming. Those who have visited the islands each have a unique personal attachment and emotional response to the landscape and the lifestyle that each island has to offer.
However, there are the bold few who turn their ‘someday' dream into reality. What are the factors that compel you to say ALOHA and decide to make a new home in one of the most remote archipelago locations on the planet?
Hawai'i is home to some of the most unique cuisines in the world and is in the midst of a growing farm-to-table movement. This increased interest in locally grown and sourced meats, vegetables, fruits and spices has only added depth to what is considered a diverse community of food palates. From cheap street eats and food trucks to the world's most luxurious fine-dining fusion restaurants, the islands offer a full range of dining experiences to satisfy any hungry beachgoer.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
The thriving local, organic farm industry in Hawai'i provides an abundance of fresh and delicious produce. It is comforting to know that you are serving healthy food to your family at home. Another reason so many find it easy to embrace an active and healthy lifestyle is due to the amount of outdoor activities that Hawai'i has to offer. Whether it's a morning spent snorkeling, a bike ride into town, or a hike through the valleys, the islands have endless activities for all ages.
NATURE & OPEN SPACE
We know that the scenic beauty of Hawai'i sells itself. This is where people come to live the life of their dreams or to enjoy Hawai'i vacation homes. It's not just the aesthetics of the island that draws people in, it's the fast array of outdoor activities that keeps them moving – keeps them looking forward to whatever may come next. People of all fitness levels are sure to find something that meets their deepest desire to commune with nature. Better yet, it's all within an easy shot of your new home at any one of our resorts.
One of the great things about living in Hawai'i is spending family time at the beach year round. The sugar white sand beaches offer some of the best opportunities for swimming and snorkeling. And while the beach is always a great place to take the family, there are plenty of other activities to do with the family on the islands – most just minutes from your new home.
