My great grandparents traveled from Portugal to the Hawaiin Islands and settled in Maui in the late 1800s. I was born in Maui and reared in Oahu. I went to Farrington High School and graduated when I was 17. I was married the same yr. and also had my first child. By the time I was 21, I had 4 children. I moved to San Diego in 1960, remarried and had my 5th child. I went into Real Estate sales in San Diego and sold RE for 20 yrs. By that time I had several rentals and retired from RE and lived off the income of my rentals. It was hard work
but it paid off in time.
My husband Gary loved fishing and when we went to Kona for a vacation, he fell in love with it.
We wanted to build our home here, so we looked for a lot. We both wanted to
be by the ocean, however, it was slim pickings finding a lot on the ocean or by the ocean. We heard about Kona Paradise from a Realtor who showed us our lot. We were so excited because not only was it ocean front but it also was a swimming beach. It is very rare in Kona to have a beach that you can walk into and swim or snorkel without having to cross over sharp lava rocks.
It is so wonderful to just sit and listen to the waves washing thru the pebbles on the beach. In the winter time when the surf high, it is such a beautiful sight to see the large waves crashing down on the beach. I love watching the whales as they go by to settle in the coves south of us and birth their calfs before going back up north. I also love to see the dophins that come and visit our cove. My huband and I would anchor our boat in the cove and then go fishing. Just a few miles out we would catch a lot of fish that we'd share with our wonderful friends and nieghbors. Kona Paradise is truly paradise.
Iddilyc! did yoga with the rising sun light through palm trees. Fantastic snorkling is a 30 seconds away walk on their hidden treasure beach. Reading in perfect silence on the comfy lanai chairs...Spectacular sunsets with the sound of the ocean ...private surroundings, meticulously clean home, exotic flowers, lovely sounds of nature,
doves, gekkos.... Never left any food out not to tempt nature and, frankly, we were astounded not to see a single bug the whole week. Incredible, since the lovely house is surrounded by vegetation. Our 3 teenagers were pleased to find snorkel gear (they had 4 pairs of fins, sizes men 8 to 11), many more goggles(12, I think) and tubes sets, and rock shoes too (12 pairs of all sizes). One buggy board, 4 beach chairs, some foamy beach tubes...tons of towels, 3 coolers, weights for snorkling, 2 sets of adult golf clubs...
Very pleasant to have different areas.. played 2 of their many board games: Clue and Mexican train dominoes. Watched our beloved Sherlock Holmes series through Netflix on their big screen, with ample room for all lying down on their L shape couch and two reclyners.
Frankly, the only problem was convincing everyone to leave this rental house to discover the island. We managed to extricate ourselves from this paradise home a couple of times and went efficently about it. Went the lava tube (get there early to be able to park!), walked (can also be biked) the 3 hour roundtrip to the lava flow, walking back under the stars (bring head flashlight). The Two Step Beach with dolphins and turtles is 15 minutes away!
Pillows and towels galore. Very comfy beds in all 3 bedrooms. Nice to find different oils and spices to be used (forgot thosd items when shopped for the week). Very ample assortment of cook ware, including slow cooker and rice cooker (left of fridge, verh back of bottom shelf). Nice free water dispenser and gas for BBQ. Big ceiling fans in every room, including the lanai. Cute lighting on lanai, and plenty of lamps, especially for reading, including on night tables. Nice laundry room with all supplies. Lovely shower in master bedroom. Lots of sliding doors and with mosquito screen and blinds all around.
Loved the big open house layout, huge lanai, the comfort, privacy, proximity to the beach, the beautiful snorkel, sunrises and sunsets. It could not been better for my family.
Gorgeous location, very friendly people. Bill, the owner helped with a lot of questions. In general a very clean place, greatly stocked with anything that you need. Great Lanai, listening to the surf every night.
We Can recommence this house Well situated on front of thé océan. Very clean and very good decorated.
We didn't realize there was no air conditioning but most nights the breeze was enough. Hope to stay here again on our next visit to the Big Island
This was our second stay at this place. If you want to hear the sounds of the ocean, visit the beach at your doorstep, and stay in a beautiful, custom built house, this is the one for south Kona.
Walk the historic Kings Trail - steps from the house.
