Tourism is booming, and there’s an electricity in the air - people are feeling good about the state of our islands, and the real estate market reflects that optimism.

All of Hawaii’s key economic indicators are on the rise and predicted to continue making gains in 2016 and beyond. With Hawaii’s unemployment at 3.5% and dropping, and tourism greater than it’s been since the Crash of 2008 - Hawaii is once again a fantastic investment opportunity for those with dreams of tropical paradise.

“The crash hit Hawaii hard, and it’s wonderful to see that dark time behind us,” said MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty Top Producer, Rebecca Keliihoomalu. “Tourism is booming, and there’s an electricity in the air - people are feeling good about the state of our islands, and the real estate market reflects that optimism.”

Yes, one can live, farm and prosper on the Big Island of Hawaii. World-Famous What's Shakin' Smoothie Bar and Restaurant is for sale – an exciting business opportunity for anyone seeking to thrive on the Big Island’s booming tourism and real estate markets. ‘What’s Shakin’ is an exotic tropical fruit farm and smoothie bar that embodies authentic Big Island abundance and true aloha spirit. For locals and visitors alike, this stop on the famous 4-mile scenic route out of Hilo is on everyone’s must-see list.

This roadside business and farm prospers on the area’s robust tourism, as it is approximately 6 miles from Historic Hilo town and on the way to Volcano National Park and Waipio Valley, both destinations on the Big Island with a million+ visitors a year. This business and real estate sale includes 20 acres of an income-producing fruit farm that supplies most of the ingredients needed at the smoothie bar and restaurant, a bucolic main home, and a tractor barn with farm equipment. The annually harvested total fruit, coconuts, and avocados grown on the farm are seemingly endless, and sought after by locals and wholesalers like Whole Foods and statewide farmers markets in this flourishing Hawaii economy.

“Dreaming of enjoying a sustainable lifestyle here in Hawaii, What’s Shakin’ Smoothie Bar and Restaurant’ is an ideal opportinity with tourism and real estate on the rise, there is still plenty of space on the 20 acres to expand the farm as well as the business,” said Ms. Keliihoomalu.
