Paniolo Country and Kona Plantation Estates
"Paniolo" is the Hawaiian word for "cowboy", and Paniolo Country subdivision is often mistakenly thought to be located near the town of Waimea which is well-known for its ranches and paniolo. The Paniolo Country neighborhood is actually in close proximity to downtown Kailua-Kona, with good access to schools, shopping and recreation. Kona Plantation Estates is adjacent to the bottom of Paniolo Country, and features spacious, newer, custom Kona homes for sale. Both neighborhoods feature 1-acre parcels of land with agricultural zoning.
