Hawaiian Paradise Park History
Since moving to Hawaiian Paradise Park (HPP) in 1993, I’ve come to love this East Hawaii community. HPP has a lot to offer the individual or family looking for an affordable place to live that offers space and privacy along with access to shopping, farmers markets, the shoreline of Puna and opportunities for nearby surfing, hiking and other outdoor activities.
Hawaiian Paradise Park lots were first offered for sale in 1959 (read more about those early years here). HPP is the second largest subdivision in the US, with 8835 lots and approximately 140 miles of roadways. As of this year, 35 of the roads are paved. In October, there will be a determination of the next groups of roads to be paved. Along with the ongoing pavement project comes annual dues to pay for it–currently that amounts to $263 for each property owner. (There are 8700 lots that are billable for road maintenance which means that 135 lots are set aside for other activities.)
HPP Real Estate Market Activity
Since January 1, 2012 there have been 95 homes and 100 lots sold in HPP. As of today, there are 76 homes and 124 lots for sale. View all homes currently for sale here and all land currently for sale here.
There’s something for all budgets in the Park. Prices for homes in HPP currently range from $950,000 for a 6,000+ sq ft luxury home (MLS 253979) to a “back on the market” Short Sale (MLS 243555) listed at $119,500 that, according to the listing agent, needs “some fixin’.”
Community Events in Hawaiian Paradise Park
The Hui, which is located on Makuu and 16th Ave, offers a variety of activities for community members and guests. It is open from 8am to 4:30pm Monday thru Friday. On the 2nd Saturday of every month there is a flee market from 7:00 am to 11:00 am and tables are only $6.00. The Activity Center can be rented for special events for a deposit of $125 and the main room for $15 an hour or with the kitchen for $30 an hour. (I rented the Center for my daughter’s high school graduation party and it was a big success!) The HPPOA website has an events calendar for community activities
What’s Next for HPP?
Soon, playground equipment will be purchased for the Hui area and there is a new committee investigating the possibility of adding bike and walking paths through the Park.
