Kulamanu is a residential subdivision off Lower Kimo Drive, with mostly large 2-story homes on lots of about 1/4 – 1/2 acre. There are design guidelines here to create a consistent look for the neighborhood. Together with the adjacent Jacaranda Estates there are about 130 home sites, each offering nice ocean views.
Keokea is the rural community at the far southern end of Kula, just before you get to Ulupalakua. This area has a rich history with a Chinese twist, as early immigrants here in the 1800’s were Hakka Chinese farmers.
A few stops along the way at La Provence bakery, and Nui’s Farm Market round out the shopping for the day – delicious French pastries are hard to pass up, and the fresh veggies at Nui’s are always well priced.
My favorite listing – 2623 Lower Kula Road
Artistic touches throughout this home really make it stand out – not a “cookie cutter” by any means. Master bedroom is well separated from the other bedrooms, all on different levels. There’s a little loft over the kitchen, overlooking the living area. Lots of natural stone and wood, plaster walls, ample windows, high ceilings – makes for a cozy and rich environment. Nicely landscaped yard with a fruit orchard. Strategic plantings block out the nearby road. The views are spectacular! (See top photo)
