We stayed in the Wailele Kai in September 2013 during our vacation to the Big Island and we fell absolutely in love with the house and the view of the ocean from the house and lanai. Shortly thereafter, we offered to buy the Wailele Kai (the previous name for the home). After reaching an agreement with the prior owners and buying the property we renamed her Paradise Pali Kai. We are excited to be able to share our home in PARADISE with other vacationers. Terry Schoneberg, Sunrise Properties, is the property manager and having lived in the Hilo area for over 40 years can fully assist you, as he did us, in making this a trip of a lifetime.

Why The Big Island: We have visited Hawaii many times. Of all the islands, the Big Island is our favorite. The Big Island is less commercialized, and there is a greater variety of things to do and see. To name a few, Volcano National Park is a must see, the Japanese gardens, the banyan trees on Banyan Drive, jungle gardens and amazing waterfalls, pele’s lava; black, white, and green sand beaches and; at times lava flowing into the ocean near Kalapana.
Why the Hilo area: While we like the Kailua Kona area on the west side, we enjoy the lushness and beauty of the eastern side more. The eastern side is a tropical beauty and the ocean is majestic. Paradise Pali Kai is ocean front in a quiet residential neighborhood in Keaau, about 20 minutes outside Hilo. Thanks to the excellent road system, travel to the western, southern, and northern ends of the island is an easy drive from Keaau.
The Unique Benefits of this House: First, the house and views are simply stunning. The magic of the location is how close the house and lanai are to the ocean and the waves. The waves break directly on the lava cliffs IN THE BACKYARD. It is dramatic to view from the lanai, “great room”, and master bedroom, all of which are on the second floor facing the ocean. Every room upstairs and downstairs, has a view of the ocean.
The Finest quality luxury in every corner of our home. In the front of the house, in a beautifully landscaped and protected private courtyard, is a gorgeous lagoon pool with waterfalls, lanai and covered patio. While the tropics are beautiful, it can at times be unbearably hot and humid, particularly to those accustomed to a cooler or drier environment or central air conditioning. To eliminate this problem, the home has an air-conditioning system that cools, filters and dehumidifies the air. It is a zoned system and the temperature of each bedroom and the “great room” can be individually controlled. Most vacation homes in Hawaii do not have air conditioning, but this vacation home defines luxury. In addition, there are fans throughout the house for ambiance and use on cooler days. Paradise Pali Kai is true luxury. Mahalo
This house was perfect for our five-day stay near Hilo. Centrally located for Hilo, Volcano National Park, and Pahoa. Twenty-minute drive to good grocery store. Kitchen stocked with everything you'd need. New appliances; clean; easy to use everything. Thanks!
We wish we could have stayed longer. Sitting on the lanai watching the ocean was a good antidote for our troubled world. While the pool was a bit chilly to get much use, the house was delightful. It is set in a quiet neighborhood and is stocked with most of the things you'll need. At the evenings you have the sound of the ocean (and the coqui frogs) and a heaven full of stars if the skies are clear..
Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ? Yes, very.
Was the property clean and well-maintained ? Yes, it is a beautiful home in a fantastic location.
Did the owner provide good customer service ? Great service and response time.
Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives ? Definitely. Have already done so.
What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike near by ? Beautiful zoo and botanical gardens. Large Foodland close by. Paolo's in Pahoa was excellent, as well as Kaleo's. This was our second visit, and we will go back again.
Beautiful house with incredible ocean views. This house has everything you need- luxury amenities. One of the nicest properties we have stayed at. We enjoyed watching the waves and sea turtles. It was the perfect end to our 2 week island hopping vacation.
This house actually looks better in person. The location has to be one of the best on the East Coast of the Big Island. We just loved having breakfast on the upper lanai while the Sun came up over the water. Walking along the cliff and looking out at the ocean waves crashing is a beautiful sight.
We loved the big tub and the Breville toaster (I know it's a weird thing to mention, but it was the most advanced toaster we'd ever seen). The bathrooms and kitchen were well stocked with everything we needed (excluding food and toiletries but we knew that).
Our only complaint was with the tv/cable, it doesn't really work at all and left us beyond frustrated more than once. Unfortunately, it rained all 8 days we were there so we ended up in front of the tv a few more times than we thought we would. The dvd player and Redbox served us well though.
We'd definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a rental in the Hilo area.
We stayed here for 5 days while exploring the volcano & lava flows. Here are our impressions of this fantastic place:
- location is really good for setting out to do volcano-related activities (30-40 minutes drive to anything/everything).
- it's even better in real life than in the photos: unbelievable view, really comfortable, super clean, well-provisioned kitchen, great beds, all kinds of extra amenities (pool toys, beach towels, snorkel stuff).
- the pool is fantastic after a day of hiking and is fun if you have kids. dang it if it don't light up at night (even)!
- location is also great for stores and groceries. Hilo is about a 30 min drive, but most of the stores are a bit south of Hilo -- putting them closer to you than it would seem. The KTA superstore has great fresh fish, BTW.
- having a garage is not a necessity but it's a really nice extra.
- layout of the home is great for multi-generational families -- has a 1st floor bedroom as well as one on 2nd floor.
Wish we could have stayed longer here. All of us agreed that we would have liked to have a few days just hanging around this lovely house.
