I love this development because it incorporates both of my favorite types of vacation destinations: the beach and the mountains. Homeowners at Mauna ‘Olu will be able to see the mountains on 3 sides of the development and the ocean on the 4th side, offering the perfect combination of green and blue hues across the valleys and the ocean. The climate tends to be sunny on most days of the year, so it’s easy to get outside and enjoy the views and weather.
In addition to the magnificent backdrop, the actual location of the community offers convenient access to a variety of activities and sources of entertainment. Residents will want to check out Makaha Beach Park and Yokohama bay for surfing and paddle boarding. There are also plenty of amazing hikes right outside of the development’s doorstep. Golfers will want to catch a round on the Makaha Valley Resort Golf Course.
