Kuwili Lani. PC: Big Island Sustainable Homes LLP

A new type of alternative residential community never seen before on Hawai’i Island just received final subdivision approval and properties in this landmark neighborhood are now available to the public.

After more than 10 years of extensive research and effort, Big Island Sustainable Homes LLP has announced the arrival of Kuwili Lani, (“to embrace the heavens”), the first-ever Sustainable Agrihood on Hawai‘i Island.

Infrastructure has been completed with lots within the gated subdivision ranging from mid $200K to mid $300K. Julie Keller, R(B), of Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers, is handling sales for Kuwili Lani.

Featuring 11 one-acre vacant lots zoned Ag-1 for agricultural use; Kuwili Lani is a planned, intentional community that is designed to be low-impact—where residents can enjoy a sustainable lifestyle.

Situated along the Hāmākua Coast above the village of Laupahoehoe, careful consideration and planning went into every aspect of living in this one-of-a-kind subdivision.

At Kuwili Lani, amidst green rolling hills and sweeping Pacific Ocean views, the focus is on living a sustainable lifestyle. Emphasizing independence from the energy grid and wise use of natural resources, the community is designed with an array of renewable energy systems, including photovoltaic and wind systems, plus a combination of water catchment and county potable water.


Energy and water efficiency, and conservation are the cornerstones of the homes to be built in Kuwili Lani, featuring the latest in green building practices. With each lot designed to take maximum advantage of the region’s rich growing conditions, residents of Kuwili Lani are encouraged to grow their own healthy food.

Developer Big Island Sustainable Homes, LLP created Kuwili Lani in response to demand from people looking to live in Hawaii who are mindful about the environment. Kuwili Lani is designed for people who want to live in an intentional neighborhood where they have a low-impact on the land, while still enjoying the modern amenities of technology and comfortable living.

“Kuwili Lani is based on the principle of one being independent and in charge of one’s own destiny” stated Michael Whelan, managing partner for Big Island Sustainable Homes, LLP. “We wanted to create a path for people to follow who are aware of the way their lifestyle impacts our environment”.
