The 25 Most Expensive Homes in Hawaii
(page 4 of 13)
4 bedrooms • 4 full and 2 half bathrooms • 6,804-square-foot interior • 63,978-square-foot lot
More than half of the top 25 homes in Hawaii are located on the Kona Coast, and they’re all in private resort communities—Kukio, Mauna Lani, Mauna Kea and Hualalai. This property happens to be the most expensive parcel in Hualalai, and looks out onto the greens of the exclusive Hualalai golf course. It’s owned by Helen and Charles Schwab. Yes, that Schwab—founder and chairman of the Charles Schwab Corp., and ranked by Forbes as the 50th richest person in the U.S., with a fortune totaling approximately $4.7 billion.

This house looks out onto Kukio’s South Pond, and then onto the ocean. (Although when we flew over the property, the pond was all but empty. Maintaining water features in arid Kona can’t be easy.) The owner is yet another investment banker: Paul Stephens, the chairman and a partner of Stephens Investment Management, and the co-founder and managing director of RS Investments, a San Francisco-based management group that manages more than $7 billion in assets.
