Appropriate property name!

Can’t say enough great things about our stay. The house was wonderful. Terri was great to work with and responsive. We loved the location and the view of the ocean while enjoying our meals on the porch. The pebble beach at the bottle of the hill offers a great view and was a relaxing place to read a book in the sun.

The kitchen was well stocked, the house was clean and charming, and there were new beach chairs to use! We immediately felt relaxed and at home.

The house is close to many great snorkeling locations and not far from Kona or Volcano National Park. There are restaurants, fruit stands, and grocery close as well. And even though we were busy, we decided to eat many of our meals at the house to relax in the surroundings and for the view. By the end we found ourselves wishing to come back and bring all of our friends to stay in the neighborhood.

Wonderful and comfortable vacation home with gorgeous views of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The home had everything we needed to kick back and relax. The view from the huge lanai was stunning. The setting was peaceful and quiet. There is lots to see and do in the Captain Cook area south of Kona. We felt well situated to explore Volcano National Park as well. The entrance to the subdivision is easy to find from the main road and as the listing points out, the access to the home involves some steep hills but all very manageable. The black sand Pebbles Beach at the base of the subdivision is fantastic although the day we visited, the sea was rough and not good for swimming. Local property manager was prompt in getting back to us to address questions. All told, a fantastic rental and we'd definitely consider staying here again.

Everything from the lanai to the outdoor shower was clean. The rooms were comfy. The location was just a 3 mile drive away from a beautiful pebble beach!!!

A beautiful home with a gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this home was wonderful. The house is clean and comfortable with a fantastic view of the ocean. The owner is thoughtful, accommodating and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt at home and very happy. Note: The steep, well-paved and well-maintained road to the house is an adventure, but it adds to the wondefully unique experience of this Little Peace of Heaven.

Good spot, as advertised.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and two teenage boys visited over Christmas Spectacular view! Great little place. We spent most of our visit on the porch, on the pebble beach at the bottom of the hill (don't think you can walk down and back), or out and about. Better instruction for, beginning of stay, leaving, hiking trails and things to do would be an improvement.

Off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at A Little Peace of Heaven in Kona Paradise. This piece of property is south of Kona and in a very charming neighborhood. Though it shouldn't deter you, the roads in this area are very steep and winding. At the end of the road in this neighborhood, there is a unique black "Pebble Beach". LPH is conveniently located between some of the more popular attractions "on the Kona side" of the island and there is plenty to do and places to go in any direction.

LPH is exactly as pictured on the VRBO website. It is clean, and extremely well-stocked with everything you could possibly need from the kitchen to beach gear. There is even an outdoor shower to rinse off sand and salt after a day of snorkeling. The feature we loved the most was the boasts a view you won't easily forget and has room for meals and lounging.

There were only a couple of "cons" to our short stay at LPH. Our cell service didn't work in this part of the island. It turned out to not be a problem and we got by communicating with our loved ones via WiFi or when we were off-property. There is a landline available, though we were hesitant to use it unless we had an emergency (which we didn't). Also, the guest booklet says Netflix is available, but we couldn't figure out how to access it via the TV and the account information was incomplete. BUT...Who needs Netflix when you have the amazing view/sunsets at LPH?!

My only suggestion to the owner/manager would be to outline some check-out procedures. With a $500 deposit, I wanted to be sure to meet the expectations and there was not much information provided on that. That being said, we did receive our entire deposit back even though a boogie board was damaged during our use...of which we were so thankful!

I would definitely recommend this property and would consider coming back. It was perfect for our first visit to "The Big Island." It really is a Little Peace of Hawaii Heaven!

About Terri Maass

I'm a teacher at a community college and my husband Bobby just retired from Duke Energy. We were married in Hawaii in 1982 and never got over the love of each other and of Hawaii.

Terri Maass purchased this house in 2012

Why Terri Maass chose Opihihale

We were looking for a place in Hawaii and when we walked into this house it was love at first sight!! Perfect location because it was located in the middle of everything we would want to do on the Big Island. It had been professionally decorated by an Interior decorator and it felt like ole school Hawaii. Very authentic Hawaiian decor and when we walked out onto the Lanai and saw that view it took our breath away. Every time we walk out on that lanai we feel a sense of peace that we can't seem to find anywhere else, thus the name A little Peace of Heaven.

What makes this house unique

Being in what I call the middle of the island makes it pretty easy to drive to wherever you want to visit on the island and get back home in the same day. Being 800' above sea level you get the sweet ocean breezes so no need for air conditioning. And you have that birds eye view that makes for the most incredible sunset imagery which are forever memorable.
