In collaboration with Hawaii Life’s Carrie Nicholson & Kenny Springer, Pali Kai – one of the last properties of its kind – will be auctioned at No Reserve in November.

Pali Kai is Hawaii as few will ever experience – a truly rare find as it is one of the last available oceanfront properties with development potential…”

— Lyle Anderson, salesman

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, Sept. 30, 2022 / — Nestled in the azure waters of the Pacific Ocean, Pali Kai – a nearly 400-acre property on the pristine west coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. i—offers an unrivaled opportunity. The property offers endless development potential and will be auctioned in November through Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions in association with listing agents Carrie Nicholson and Kenny Springer of Hawaii Life. The one-off property, currently listed for $65 million, will be sold to the highest bidder with no reserve price, regardless of price. Bids for the property are scheduled to be held November 10-17 through Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions digital marketplace,, allowing buyers to bid remotely from anywhere in the world.

“Pali Kai is Hawaii as few will ever experience – a truly rare find as one of the last oceanfront lots available that offers building potential, a year-round desirable climate and indoor/outdoor living that is one and the same. With the potential for up to 13 estates, the land offers an unmatched opportunity to create a legacy for generations to come,” said vendor Lyle Anderson.

A quiet street leads to a cluster of packages of various sizes. With the ability to configure up to 13 separate oceanfront and oceanfront plots, the only limit to what Pali Kai can become is the imagination. The country’s topography varies with hilly slopes rising from the ocean to heights of over 1,000 feet while also boasting verdant native flora. Unique to this area, gentle winds averaging 8 km/h ensure an ideal year-round climate. The 13 contiguous Control Card Keys (TMKs) also allow for numerous possible additions with limited restrictions, from tennis courts, swimming pools and private roads to agricultural areas, equestrian facilities and more. Imagine an oasis of self-sufficient living with gardens and orchards teeming with a variety of plants and trees, or an ancient property that is sure to be enjoyed for generations. Pali Kai is an extremely limited opportunity that offers endless potential on a blank slate for your dream vision while overlooking the phenomenal Pacific Ocean and the awe-inspiring natural splendor of Hawaii itself.

“Now more than ever, buyers understand the limited opportunities to purchase a property like Pali Kai; one that offers virtually unlimited possibilities for your dream vision,” said Matt Beall, CEO and principal broker at Hawaii Life. “We are excited to partner once again with Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions, particularly following recent success on the Big Island and the sale of Kauai’s 34-acre Secret Beach property last year. We look forward to continuing our momentum and finding the ultimate buyer for this one-of-a-kind property.”

As you approach Pali Kai, the verdant landscape transforms into the rich azure of the Pacific and stretches further than the eye can see. Its location in the center of the Kona Coast ensures incredible year-round weather and minimal, gentle winds, making the picture-perfect views all the sweeter. The secluded black-sand beach provides a remarkable backdrop for seaside adventures such as fishing, snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and more. The property is also positioned to enjoy everything the Big Island has to offer. The Kona Coast stretches along the route to Kailua-Kona, where natural wonders and local markets lure visitors. As night falls, bask under one of the clearest starry skies in the world. As hard as it is to leave Pali Kai, Kona International Airport is only 45 minutes away and its non-stop flight schedule makes air travel to and from Hawaii a breeze.

Pali Kai is available daily for demonstrations and for private virtual demonstrations.
