Ke Kailani at Mauna Lani
The phrase “Ke Kailani” translates to “The Sea Reaching for the Heavens”. The 65 acre community currently consists of 39 estate lots that are primarily located along the fairway of the Mauna Lani golf course with distant ocean views. In addition, the original developer built 4 of 8 planned “Villa” town home style, condominiums (3300 sf) that are also located on the golf course that feature individual pools and luxurious interior appointments.
Community amenities include the Kaiola Ocean Front Grotto that features a spectacular infinity pool, two natural whirlpool spas, a fully equipped kitchen and two large entertainment hales with built in BBQ’s. The Hana Pono Park is located on 5.5 acres in the heart of the community. The private park was designed for multi-generational, multi purpose family enjoyment and is home to a freshwater “pond”, children’s swimming area, a fully equipped Fitness Hale, Fitness Path and a thatched roof Gathering Hale for entertainment.
Ke Kailani was originally developed by Michael Fuchs with construction lasting from 2003-2007. The development company sold 14 of 39 developed lots and 2 of the 4 developed Villa Town Homes. On January 6, 2011, Fuchs made a Chapter 11 filing the day before a foreclosure auction as a result of a 2009 foreclosure action, which was scheduled to dispose of the unsold parts of the subdivision. The bankruptcy filing prevented the auction from going forward.
In the bankruptcy case, the largest creditor was an affiliate of Texas-based development firm Hunt Cos. with a $22 million claim. Hunt’s claim resulted from its acquisition of a loan and mortgage in 2010 from Bank of Hawaii, Central Pacific Bank and Finance Factors Ltd.. Hunt prevailed in the foreclosure case and secured the property through its mortgage.
Hunt Cos. through their Ke Kailani Partners LLC entity began in 2017 marketing the unsold lots for prices between $899k to $6.950m for an ocean front parcel. In addition they finished the Hana Pono Park area and renovated the landscaping throughout the common areas.
Ke Kailani continues to be a premier development within the Mauna Lani Resort featuring large estate lots as well as rare ocean front parcels. In addition, the original development vision is still intact which features 2 luxurious recreation areas with one being situated on a scenic cliffside site overlooking the pacific ocean.
