Did Mark Zuckerberg Buy Hawaiian Plantation?

Mark Zuckerberg Buying Hawaii Plantation

Word on the Hawaiian real estate street (via Pacific Business News and the Curbed kids) is that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is the likely buyer who will pay around $66 million for the so-called called Kahuaina Plantation, an all but unspoiled 357-acre beachfront spread with approx. 2,500 feet of white sand beach on Kauai’s scenic North Shore. That sounds like an awful lot of money unless, like Mister Zuck, you’ve got a sky-high net worth of more than $33 billion and then $66 million for a large slice of tropical paradise is a piece of real estate cake..

So the scuttlebutt goes, Mister and Missus Zuckerberg snatched up a few multi-million dollar condos last year at the ONE Ala Moana complex in downtown Honolulu but, honestly butter beans, we don’t know a thing about said alleged purchases. He does, however, owns at least five adjoining properties near the Facebook campus in Palo Alto as well as a pie-a-terre in San Francisco’s Liberty Heights ‘hood that he bought in 2012 and is currently undergoing a massive, neighbor-inconveniencing renovation.

    I hope Mr. I-have-so-much-money-I-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-it knows that according to state law he’s going to *have* to allow beach access to to we poor unwashed lesser-thans.

    Kauai is the place to buy for unmatched views and privacy. If this is true, congrats to them.

    I knew that facade of him living in a simple rental like common folk wasn’t going to last… so here we go. At least he has good taste in properties LOL

    From my last time in Hawaii, I can still hear that radio jingle for the mall: “…oooo, aahhh, Ala Moana!
