About Amy & Paul Blessington

Retired couple enjoying the beautiful island of Hawaii

Amy & Paul Blessington purchased this house in 2009

Why Amy & Paul Blessington chose Kailua-Kona

Finding the perfect location in Kona is not so easy. You want to have great ocean views in a quiet neighborhood away from the highway, while still being minutes away from the beach, restaurants and shopping. The Registration ID# for this property is: GE-162-723-4304-02

What makes this house unique

Less than 10 minutes away is Kahalu’u beach. Kahalu’u is widely regarded as one of the top snorkeling spots in all of Hawaii. The variety and quantity of tropical fish at Kahalu’u is fantastic. For those first getting used to snorkeling, the private pool is a safe and easy way to get used to wearing a mask and snorkel. The location is also close to many other beautiful beaches, restaurants and shops. Choose among a wide variety of ocean and outdoor activities or simply just relax on the patio enjoying an intense ocean sunset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful property. We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home for 3 nights in March 2017. The home was spotless, and had so many extras. We really appreciated the beach chairs, sun umbrella and small cooler on our trips to the beach. We loved sitting on the porch and listening to the birds as we enjoyed the beautiful view. We only crossed paths with Paul and Amy one time, and they were very gracious hosts. The only drawback was the bed seemed small for my husband and I, as we are used to a king sized bed. ( I think this is a double), but overall I would rate our experience as top notch and hope to stay here again.

Great location and amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Hawaii, and I was a bit nervous about choosing housing. Paul and Amy's unit turned out to be a fantastic choice. We were in a great location to drive to our chosen adventures, and a close drive to restaurants and shops, but the home itself was in a private area that was quiet, and had the most stunning view from the patio. The house was very clean, well-appointed, and had a comfortable bed. This was a wonderful choice for our 25th wedding anniversary trip.

Fabulous stay! Beautiful location, every possible comfort!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible attention to detail and comfort! Super clean, in terrific condition. Everything you could need was there! Great sunset views, and wonderful covered lanai with table and padded chairs, along with a great grill. We loved spending time outside, listening to all the birds and enjoying the views. Nice 50” tv inside, too, with a large, comfy couch for relaxing. Amy and Paul were quick to respond to any query, yet respected our privacy even though they live upstairs. Just a “Wow!” stay!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just outstanding. The rental was clean, private and had a great view. Couldn't ask for more. The owners were very hospitable, friendly and not seen unless you asked to meet them. We had one of the most enjoyable stays that we have had in some time.

Amazing views! Ideal island retreat. Exceptionally clean and well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the island of Hawaii but certainly not our last. Paul and Amy have clearly thought carefully about what their guests will need to feel comfortable and at ease during their visit. The location was an ideal spot from which to travel for day trips around the island. It is centrally located with first rate snorkeling and sand beaches near by. Watching the sunset from the lanai was magical! They have all the gear we needed to enjoy our time by the water.

The house was properly stocked with all the equipment we needed to prepare meals that we enjoyed on the lanai. Did I mention the view? Amazing!

No need to overpack as the washer and dryer in the unit made a 10 day stay work with only a few outfits. We found the entire unit comfortable and easy to settle in to.

Guests have access to the pool and outdoor shower. There is a private drive and grill for guests. Paul and Amy are amazingly respectful of their guests privacy.

From the time we booked all the way through to our "thanks for staying" text, Amy and Paul responded quickly to our messages. We felt very comfortable that if we had questions or needed anything they would be happy to assist.

For a couple or solo traveler this is an ideal island retreat!
