If you were to ask around, most folks would easily agree that Hawaii is one of the most-desirable places to live in the entire world, and it’s easy to see why. Sprawling beaches, tropical scenery, and a never-ending supply of sunshine make the islands both easy on the eyes and a true delight to call home.

Having said that, many don’t realize that each of Hawaii’s islands have their own unique feel, culture, and vibe to them—and as a lifelong resident of the Big Island, I can safely say there’s nowhere else I’d rather be! Today, I’d like to share with you my top 5 favorite reasons to call the Big Island your home: 

The weather: We bet you saw this one coming a mile away! Even though it goes without saying, it still bears repeating: the Big Island is home to some of the most-hospitable climates in the entire world. Sure, most people already consider all the islands to be a tropical paradise… but what isn’t quite as well known is that the Big Island is also home to 10 of the world’s 13 total sub-climate zones, giving you an abundance of choice as to the kind of weather you’d like to experience on any given day!

All that natural beauty: Going hand-in-hand with our outstanding weather, Hawaii’ natural beauty is truly a sight to behold – and it makes for quite the scenic backdrop to your home or condo! Where else can you find pristine beaches mingling with awe-inspiring volcanoes, right in your backyard?

The culture: The state of Hawaii is famous for its vibrant culture and sense of aloha – and where better to find it than on the island that lends our state its name? Indeed, aloha serves many purposes to Hawaiian culture that are difficult to capture in just a few words. It’s a greeting, an expression of love and kindness, it's an encapsulation of the outlook for so many across this wonderful place. 

All that glorious space: They certainly don’t call it the ‘Big Island’ for nothing! With over 4,000 total square miles of splendor, you’ll never be in danger of running out of new places to discover on the island of Hawaii, from mauka to makai. Even as a lifelong resident I still find new places to explore almost every week – and I’m not in any danger of running out anytime soon. 

The magnificent homes: Last, but certainly not least -- get a load of some of these properties! The Big Island’s Northern and Western shores are home to some of the world’s most-desirable dwellings and luxury living spaces in the entire world. I’ve been living on the Big Island now for nearly 25 years, and Hawaii stands second to none when it comes to gorgeous spaces to call your home.
