Located along the North Kona Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii, Kukio Golf and Beach Club is a spectacular 1,100-acre property. VITA helped create its vision and develop its masterplan to attract the world’s most discriminating buyers. The property includes just 300 residences. Amenities include a 35,000-squarefoot, oceanfront beach club and spa, a hillside golf clubhouse, community parks, a breathtaking Tom Fazio-designed golf course, and a fun, 10-hole golf trail, as well as carefully preserved shoreline ponds and archeological sites. In keeping with the relaxed Hawaiian ambiance, a beautifully designed network of trails for pedestrian and golf-cart travel allows residents to walk barefoot from the rear yards of their homes to the beach.
Punta Sayulita is a 10-hectare peninsula adjacent to the seaside town of Sayulita in Nayarit, Mexico. VITA is working with two separate owners to provide land planning and landscape architectural design services for the property. The peninsula is beautifully forested and visible from many parts of town. The site is extremely rugged and steep with huge granite boulders, offering limited beach access. Due to the site’s sensitivity, our efforts are oriented towards maximizing ocean and bay views while preserving this extraordinary environment by minimizing construction. The plan we developed leaves three predominant hilltops untouched and carefully controls building locations along the oceanfront.
VITA was integral to the development and execution of the masterplan for this iconic private golf and residential community in the popular Highlands-Cashiers region of the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina. With a focus on providing rustic, yet refined adventures and authentic mountain experiences for member families, Mountaintop includes 240 estate lots and 75 luxury cabins spread across 731 acres. Amenities include an exceptional Tom Fazio-designed golf course, a mountain lodge-inspired clubhouse with spa and fitness facilities, family swimming pool, sport courts, kids’ camp and lodging for guests and family members. A private lake club and signature Outdoor Pursuits program brings to life all of the fun and adventure the region has to offer.
This exceptional beachfront community and club has set the standard for privacy and laidback luxury in the Los Cabos corridor for more than a decade.
