The 2018 eruption wreaked havoc upon the subdivision of Leilani Estates. While there is currently no active surface lava on the island, the destruction is still evident here. You will hear first-hand accounts from real homeowners and see Fissure 8, the largest fissure from the eruption. We have exclusive access to visit 4 different properties destroyed in the eruption. A portion of our sales goes to those who tragically lost their homes.
